TalentLens Assessment Platform Privacy and Security

Privacy

This policy applies only to Pearson Talent Assessment and the website. We are committed to protecting the privacy of visitors and users of our site and services. This site contains links to other sites, and Pearson Talent Assessment is not responsible for the privacy practices of those other sites.

Informed Consent

Pearson Talent Assessment collects your personal information only with your informed consent. It uses your information for personalisation, identification, and communication. If you respond to Pearson Talent Assessment about materials presented on this web site with questions, comments or similar feedback, your response will be non-confidential. By sending Pearson Talent Assessment the response, you grant an irrevocable unrestricted license to use, reproduce, distribute, and modify the information in your response, and you agree Pearson Talent Assessment is free to use for any purpose whatsoever any ideas or concepts contained in your response. However, Pearson Talent Assessment will not release your name or publicise the fact of your response unless: a) you give permission; b) you are first notified before you respond to a particular part of this site that any response may be published and used; c) as is required by law. The information we receive depends on what you do when visiting this site.

Assessment Administrators

To register as an Assessment Administrator, you are required to submit personal and professional information. This information is used to determine your qualifications to administer the various assessments available on Pearson Talent Assessment. None of this information will be sold or redistributed, although aggregate (group) data may be compiled and redistributed or sold in the form of research, special industry reports, and Pearson Talent Assessment usage pattern studies. We may occasionally send an email to all Assessment Administrators with news or announcements. You may stop receiving these messages at any time by notifying us of your desire.

Assessment Testing

When taking an assessment at Pearson Talent Assessment, you are required to enter personal information. Pearson Talent Assessment uses your information for identification and communication only. This information is sent to the Assessment Administrator along with your test scores. Pearson Talent Assessment is not responsible for the use of this information by the Assessment Administrator and does not sell or redistribute your individual information to any other parties.

We reserve the right to use your demographic information without any individual identifying data (such as your name or e-mail address) and raw test data for any purpose.

If you have questions or comments about our privacy policy and practices, please contact us.

Because we understand the sensitivity and confidentiality of test data, Pearson Talent Assessment utilises the most advanced security methods available.

Security

Because we are vigilant in our protection of sensitive and confidential data, we utilise the most advanced security methods available.

Unauthorised Access

Access to Pearson Talent Assessment is restricted to authorised users and requires an ID and Password. Registration of users is rigorous with clearly defined authorised user levels. Identity is confirmed by legally binding agreement coupled with review of credentials and certification.

Data Security

All the Pearson Talent Assessment Center data (including Assessment Administrator and Assessment takers personal information, assessment data, and the text of the assessment reports themselves) are stored in a Microsoft SQLServerâ„¢ database. Access to this data is strictly controlled, offering state-of-the-art security. Assessments are scored off-line by a secure scoring server, with the assessment results then returned to the Authorised User ordering the assessment.

Personal Data and Electronic Commerce

Pearson Talent Assessment protects your personal data and electronic commerce transactions with the highest levels of security. Our servers use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, an advanced encryption technology that works with Netscape Navigator and Communicator (version 2.0 and above), Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 3.0 and above), and AOL (version 3.0 and above) browsers. SSL encrypts all of your personal information, including your credit card number, name, address, assessment answers and scores so that it cannot be intercepted as the information travels over the Internet between your browser and our site.

We believe that Pearson Talent Assessment is likely more secure than the traditional assessment methods when the realities of unreturned assessment booklets, widely distributed (and reverse-engineer able) computer diskettes, and "lost" mailings are considered. Assessment developers, authorised users, and assessment subjects can be assured that the secure and confidential management of sensitive data is of utmost concern to us. Pearson Talent Assessment is dedicated to continuous quality review of all security methods.
