What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

Personal Information:
Personal information is voluntarily given to us by the user. We may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to provide relevant updates regarding our services. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, (contact person’s) name, email address, telephone number, assessment results, or any other information deemed necessary to maintain communication and provide consulting / coaching services. Clients may be requested to provide additional sensitive information as deemed necessary to complete the work agreed upon by both parties.

Personal information may be retained in a “hard copy” format on premises at the offices of participating companies.

3rd Party:

The information collected is meant for internal purposes only and will not be shared with 3rd parties for marketing or selling purposes.

Survey AnyplaceWe collect and store contact information and assessment results for assessment takers through Survey Anyplace, a 3rd party application software, and therefore data provided to us will be processed by this entity. Information collected by Survey Anyplace is governed by their privacy policy.

Mailchimp and Survey AnyplaceWe collect and store a majority of our contact information for email subscribers through MailChimp and/or Survey Anyplace, a 3rd party application software, and therefore data provided to us will be processed by this entity. Information collected by MailChimp or Survey Anyplace is governed by their privacy policy.

OneDrive: We store a majority of our client information with Microsoft OneDrive, a 3rd party cloud storage company. Data provided to us will be stored on OneDrive’s cloud and therefore is governed by their privacy policy.

The participating companies exercise no control over these third-party sites and their privacy practices.


We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website or through connected websites such as our survey assessment, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

The participating companies may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on our website. You are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes.
