EFFECTIVE DATE SEPTEMBER 1, 2017
The purpose of this Policy is to provide notice to respondents as to the purposes for which PI collects information about them. It also describes the manner in which PI handles personal information collected in connection with the administration of PI assessments 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.
Respondents to PI assessments are asked to provide the following information: first and last name and email address. They are also asked to provide responses to the PI Behavioral Assessment (which consists of adjectives chosen by the respondent) and/or the PI Cognitive Assessment (which consists of multiple choice responses chosen by the respondent). Respondents to PI assessments in this Policy are referred to as “respondents.” Clients of PI are referred to as “customers” and authorized users at each customer company are referred to in this Policy as “users.”
In addition to the personal information collected when the respondent completes a PI assessment, additional information may be collected when a respondent voluntarily 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 PI, title, occupation, and personal contact details to be included in further PI research, and are only collected with the respondent’s express consent. PI may collect technical information about the respondent’s browser and operating system in order to enhance the respondent’s experience.
PI and its distributors collect additional personal information from users and employees of customers who attend sales training. This information includes address, telephone and fax numbers.
PI may collect, store and use aggregated anonymous information from the administration of PI assessments and our other products and services in order to improve its business operations and its products. This information does not identify any individual. PI also uses log files and other generally available web tracking technologies in operating, maintaining, and improving our software platform and other websites. This information does not contain any personal information and is not linked to any personal information that PI holds except when a respondent voluntarily agrees to answer optional research questions.
PI’s software provides customers with the results of the applicable PI assessment(s), along with a series of basic reports that utilize those results.
PI maintains contracts with our customers, distributors, and subcontractors requiring them to comply with the requirements of this Policy. These third parties must provide at least the same level of privacy protection as required under applicable law.
We may need to share your information for law enforcement or other legal purposes. This type of sharing may be necessary in connection with a lawsuit, claim or investigation, governmental inquiry, court order, enforcement of legal rights (e.g., contract terms, intellectual property rights, etc.), safety issue, or other similar legal or security matter. Sharing your information for these reasons is not a regular event, but could arise from time to time. We will strive to limit the types and amount of information we may need to share for legal purposes to that which is reasonably necessary.
PI maintains appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to ensure the security of personal information covered by this Policy and to protect such personal information from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. PI has a written data security policy that describes the policies and procedures by which we and our employees maintain data security.
Despite all of our efforts, no security safeguards or standards are guaranteed to provide 100% security. Please protect your password information, unique PI assessment email invitation and its contents, and use caution when logging into your account from a shared or public computer.
Your information may be transferred outside your home country.
PI complies with the E.U.- U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of your information transferred from any country in the European Economic Area or Switzerland (as applicable) to the United States.

We do not collect information from children.
