Disclosure and Sharing of Personal Information.
The Company will not disclose, move, access, or use Personal Information except as provided in the customer’s agreement with the Company, or without your explicit consent, or when the Company believes it is required to do so by law. However, we may collect and use aggregate, de-identified (anonymized), or other information that does not identify you (“De-identified Information”) for research or scientific purposes. For the purposes of research, we may include some of your data in scientific studies. For example, to show how test scores generally relate to demographic information, such as age, gender, or sport. If so, this data will be used anonymously, and not directly associated with you in any way.
We do not use or share personal information for any marketing purposes unrelated to the Services.
Choices You Have About Collection, Use, Correction, and Erasure of Your Personal Information
You have a right to be told what Personal Information we hold about you and any third parties we have disclosed it with (with certain exceptions). You also have a right to provide us with corrections if you believe any of your personal information is inaccurate. However, if personal information was collected through an organization such as school, sports team, a medical provider, etc., requests for access, amendments, or deletion should be directed to the organization through which the data was originally collected.
Because the data generated by the Cognitive Testing Applications can only be used by licensed healthcare professional, the test takers will not be granted access to this data by the Company. Requests to view these data should be directed to the healthcare professional.

If you request the deletion of your data entirely or in part by submitting a written request to the Company’s Data Protection Officer (see contact information at the end of this Notice), we will honor that request as long as we are allowed to do so under applicable law and regulations. When Personal Information collected by cognitive testing applications reaches 7 years since the date of creation, it will be deidentified, archived, and permanently removed from the company production database following a review by legal and regulatory compliance departments to ensure archiving process follows applicable legal and contractual requirements.
