Understanding Consent

 

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), consent is one of the legal bases for the processing of personal data. By accepting our Terms and Conditions, you, as a tester, are providing us with your explicit consent, which serves as our legal basis for collecting and processing your personal data. This section outlines what this means for you.

 

Provision of Consent

 

Explicit Consent: By accepting our Terms and Conditions, you explicitly consent to the collection and processing of your personal data for the specific purposes related to our management due diligence services.

Informed Decision: We ensure that your consent is given in an informed manner. Before you accept our Terms and Conditions, we provide clear and comprehensive information about the data processing activities your consent pertains to.

 

Scope of Consent

 

Purpose of Data Processing: The consent you provide allows us to process your personal data solely for the purposes of conducting personality testing and management due diligence services.

 

How We Use Your Data

 

What data is collected?
Your personal data (name, any personal data provided via the registration page and special categories of personal data such as psychometric assessment test results) will be collected by our company for the provision of management due diligence services to our clients.

 

What happens to my personal data post-completion?
Data from the assessments carried out online are collected by our online assessment and software, which converts raw data into standardised scores and graphs. This data is stored on servers in the United Kingdom, with robust security measures in place.

Upon completion of the assessment, the scores will be analysed by our inhouse experts and a report including scores and insights will be sent to our client, including:

  • Name

  • Job Title

  • Company

  • Graph and scores of your test

  • Written narrative of the personality profile

 

How long will my data be held for?
We store assessment results for the duration of their validity (two years). You can request the removal of these results before the two-year period by submitting a written request. Your identity will be confirmed before deleting the files.
