We refer to this information as “Device Information.”
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:
We also use two third party services, Google Analytics and Piwik, to collect certain Device Information.

In addition to Device Information, there are instances in which we either collect or require you to disclose “Personal Information.” Personal Information is information that could personally identify you, for example, your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, birth year, and requested payment information.
Although you may browse the Website or Services without providing Personal Information, in the following instances, we need you to actively submit Personal Information:
Information We Receive or Collect from Third Parties
OUR USE OF YOUR INFORMATION
We use your Device Information to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Website. We do this, for example, to generate statistics on website traffic and website activity, customize the advertising and content visitors see, fulfill your requests for products and services, and conduct research and assess the performance of any marketing or advertising campaigns.
We use and store the Personal Information you provide us for the reasons set forth above. More generally, we use this information in order to fulfill orders (including arranging for shipping, facilitating payment to our third party providers, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations), manage customer complaints, and process requests to access testing data.
We also use the Personal Information you provide us in connection with an Assessment to process the assessment data as well as conduct comparative analytics. We may strip your assessment data of any personally identifiable information and combine it with other users for research and evaluation purposes. We do not share your Personal Information provided in connection with an Assessment to third parties without your explicit prior consent.
In addition to the foregoing, we may also use your Personal Information for legitimate business purposes, including to:
INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
We do not rent or sell your Personal Information without your permission. However, we may share your Personal Information for the purposes described herein:
AGGREGATION AND/OR ANONYMIZATION
In addition to the uses and sharing of information set forth above, we may also aggregate and/or de-identify any Personal Information or Device Information (including assessment data) that we collect, such that the information no longer identifies any specific individual. When we do this, we may use, disclose and otherwise process such information for our own legitimate business purposes – including historical and statistical analysis and business planning – without restriction. We may also share this aggregated and anonymized data with third parties for marketing purposes, and you may see advertisements from companies that align with your interests.
When you register for our Services, you may elect to receive promotional, marketing, or other similar emails or notifications that we think you will find useful and interesting, including newsletters, new blog posts, eBooks and other updated content, as well as notifications about our products and services (“Marketing Communications”). If you voluntarily opt-in to receive such Marketing Communications, you consent to receive these communications from us.
Regardless of where you live, you may choose to opt out of receiving Marketing Communications any time by following the instructions provided in any Marketing Communication you receive, by contacting us at email@example.com, or by writing us at Attn: Customer Service Dept., P.O. Box 617691, Chicago, Illinois 60661.
Please note that even if you opt-out of receiving Marketing Communications, you may still receive necessary business-related communications, such as transactional emails.
SECURITY OF INFORMATION

YOUR RIGHTS TO THE PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE
If you are a European resident, you have the right to access personal information we hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. You also have the right, where technically feasible, to have Personal Information that you provided based solely on consent to be transferred to you. If you would like to exercise these rights (which you may do at any time) or inquire as to any additional rights you may have under applicable law, please contact us through the contact information below.

When you purchase the Assessment through our Website or otherwise use our Services, we will maintain your Personal Information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information. We may also retain any anonymized and/or stripped data that is not personally identifiable for so long as we deem necessary for our research, analysis, and business planning purposes.

YOUR CONSENT AND FEEDBACK
PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION
You have several options when deciding how you can best protect your Information. One option is simply not to volunteer it. This approach would allow you to still visit our Services, although it may prevent you, for example, from placing orders or taking the Assessment. The Federal Trade Commission’s website, www.ftc.gov, also offers useful information about how to protect personally identifiable information provided to a website.
