1. Purpose and Notice

The purpose of this Policy is to provide Notice to users as to the purposes for which The Predictive Index collects information about them. It also describes the manner in which The Predictive Index, LLC handles personal information collected in connection with the administration of the Predictive Index system (the “Predictive Index” or “PI®”) as well as other products and services. In this Policy, the term “personal information” means information that identifies, or can be used to identify, an individual. This Policy provides Notice to all users and is available before personal information is obtained from them.

 

  1. The Information we collect

Respondents to the PI® are asked to provide the following information: first and last name and email address. They are also asked to provide responses to the PI (which consists of adjectives chosen by the respondent).

Additionally, Customers who use accessPI™ may optionally request and store other information from their users and respondents including job code, department code, occupation, status, language, or other information. The Predictive Index does not make use of such information except in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you voluntarily provide this information, you are considered to have provided your consent by opting in to the collection and use of this information as described in this Privacy Policy.

In addition to the personal information collected when the user completes the Predictive Index, other information may be collected when other The Predictive Index products are used or when a user agrees to answer optional research questions. In this case, the information requested may include the following: customer-provided group designation, age, years of experience, ethnicity, gender, country of origin, education level, position level, company name, relationship to The Predictive Index, title, and occupation. The Predictive Index may collect technical information about the user’s browser and operating system in order to enhance the user’s experience.

The Predictive Index and its distributors collect additional personal information from PI Analysts and employees of Customers who attend sales training. This information includes address, telephone and fax numbers.

We do not collect information from children. Since our assessment tool is designed to be used only by adults age 18 and older, it is not intended for nor used by children.

 

  1. The purpose for collecting this information

The Predictive Index may collect, store and use aggregated anonymous information from the administration of the PI and its other products and services in order to improve its business operations and its products. This information does not identify any individual. The Predictive Index also uses log files and other generally available web tracking technologies in operating, maintaining, and improving its accessPI™ and other websites. This information does not contain any personal information and is not linked to any personal information that The Predictive Index holds. The Predictive Index’s software provides Customers with the results of the PI Survey, along with a basic report. The Predictive Index and its distributors also provide other assessment tools and collect information in connection with these other tools.
