Our Range of Products
MySkillsProfile offers behavioural style self-assessments and
360-degree feedback surveys.
MySkillsProfile has three categories of user:
- Individual Users
- Corporate Account Administrators
- Corporate Users
Individual Users are visitors to our website who
complete one of our tests and pay for the assessment results themselves. These
users have limited direct access to their test-results and do not have any
Corporate Account Administrators (the Administrator)
are those who administer an account on the MySkillsProfile platform in order to
carry out assessments/surveys with groups of test-takers.
The Administrator is normally either a
member of an organization’s HR Department or a self-employed consultant. The creation
of an account requires that the client identifies the Administrator to
manage the assessments available under their account.
While the Administrator is a single person,
it is possible that the email address of the Administrator is
accessible to more than one person in the customer organization.
The Administrator can invite test takers
individually or create a generic-login for a group of test-takers.
MySkillsProfile offers a White Label service enabling
customers to brand assessment screens and feedback reports with their
organization name and logo.
Corporate Users are test-takers who have been
invited by the Administrator to access and complete the
assessments available in their account.
Information We Collect
Core Personal Data - Name and Email address.
Additional Personal Data - Test-taker’s current
management level for certain assessments. In case of the 360-degree survey, the
relationship of the assessor to the assessee is required, e.g., manager, direct
Research Data - Optional biographic and
demographic details such as age, gender, country of origin. This data supports
Assessment Item Data - The test-taker’s
responses to the items in an assessment.
Results Data - Test taker scores generated by
our automated analytical processes.
Purpose of Collection of Personal Data
Personal data is collected for the following purposes:
- The Email address of the Administrator enables
test-takers to communicate with the Administrator, e.g., to
ask Developing the assessment they have been asked to take, report
technical problems, request feedback reports.
- The Email address of a test-taker enables us to send a
unique assessment access link and the feedback report. It is also used for
communication with the test-taker in cases where the test-taker requires
support to complete an assessment and obtain their results.
- The Name of the test-taker is collected in order to
generate a personalized feedback report. The Name is also used in our
email communications to address test-takers.
Data Life Cycle
Individual Users of all the self-assessments are
required to supply Core and Additional Personal Data
only at the end of the assessment.
The Administrator, when inviting an individual
test-taker, is required to provide the test-taker’s Personal Data in
advance. If the Administrator creates a generic-login for a
group of test-takers, the test-taker is required to provide the Personal
Data before the assessment can be initiated.
In case of the 360-degree feedback survey, Personal
Data for assessors invited for their feedback is either provided by
the assessee or the Administrator.
MySkillsProfile ensures that all Personal Data available
in our database are automatically anonymized after 120 days from the completion
of the assessment by the test-taker.
MySkillsProfile reserves the right to retain all other forms
of data (Additional Data, Research Data, Assessment Data, Results Data) in our
database for our research and development, for example, to update norms and
publish evidence about the technical properties of our assessments.
The feedback reports for all our assessments are generated
dynamically using on-the-fly methods with the help of all the data collected.
It is important for all users of MySkillsProfile to understand that feedback
reports are available only for 120 days from the date of completion of the
MySkillsProfile anonymizes the Personal Data 120 days from
the completion of the assessment.
During this 120 days period:
For Individual Users, only MySkillsProfile staff
have access to all the data supplied by the test-taker. The feedback report is
accessible only by the test-taker and MySkillsProfile staff. MySkillsProfile
staff access feedback reports only when test-takers ask us to email their
reports to them or when they ask for help interpreting their results.
For Corporate Users, only MySkillsProfile staff
have access to all the data supplied by the test-taker. The Administrator has
access to the feedback reports. Access to feedback reports is controlled by the Administrator who
decides whether test-takers get their results as soon as they have completed an
assessment or whether they are distributed at the same time.
In specific situations, MySkillsProfile shares the detailed
data collected with the Administrator, e.g., where a customer
wishes to create a group report, or where a customer wishes to carry out a
training needs analysis.
