AVA Assessment Associates strives to protect the privacy of the users of the WebAVA.com website. We work diligently to protect confidentiality, restrict transfer of personal data, incorporate technical safeguards and appropriate security policies, and identify privacy implications in new services. To that end, we would like you to know how we use the personal information you provide to us.INFORMATION ABOUT INDIVIDUAL USERS
When taking an assessment on the WebAVA.com website, users are required to enter personal information. AVA Assessment Associates uses this information for identification and communication. This information along with applicable assessment results is sent to the AVA Assessment Associates customer (the "Assessment Administrator") who has referred the user to our website. AVA Assessment Associates is not responsible for the use of this information by the Assessment Administrator. We deliver this information to the Assessment Administrator by requiring a unique username and password for all customers and users. Otherwise, we do not sell, trade or rent or otherwise give to any other entity or organization the individual information our customers submit when placing an order or taking an instrument on our site.
Throughout the WebAVA.com website there may be forms for users to fill out to request information, products, and services. These forms typically ask for contact information (such as phone or email address), unique identifiers (such as username and password) or financial information (such as your credit card numbers). This contact information may be used to communicate about products, services or promotions. We may also conduct surveys or run contests during which similar information will be collected and used for such purposes. Users may opt out of receiving such communications by selecting the appropriate option during account setup or modification. We also reserve the right to aggregate or compile and use data obtained from the scoring or other processing of products listed on this site or otherwise sold or licensed by AVA Assessment Associates, and to utilize this data for research, product development, and statistical analysis. Such data is only used in aggregate and does not disclose any individual's identity.
DISCLOSURE TO OUTSIDE PARTIES
If we provide a third party with client information, it will be in the form of aggregate data and used for the purposes of product development, research or statistical analysis. The information will remain anonymous, stripped of all personally identifiable data and compiled among all of our visitors' answers to survey questions and instrument responses as well as grouped on-site behavior. We do reserve the right, however, to release account information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is necessary to comply with the requirements of any applicable law.
COLLECTION OF INTERNET INFORMATION
Our web site may log a user's IP address, browser type and version, dial-up domain, and computer operating system when the user visits the site. IP addresses may in some cases be linked to personally identifiable information. We use the tracked information to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. IP addresses and other like information may also be used to gather broad demographic information - information that is not associated with any individual, and is anonymous.
In order to user our website, users must accept "Cookies". Cookies are small data files that certain web sites write to a user's hard drive during a visit.
