Privacy Statement

This notice applies across all online services we provided by The Talent Collaboratory FZ-LLC and its related organisations, including our role as an application service provider, any other web apps or services we may offer

This notice applies across all online services we provided by The Talent Collaboratory FZ-LLC and its related organisations, including our role as an application service provider, any other web apps or services we may offer (for example, events, learning or accreditation). This notice does not necessarily apply to data collected or held in other related third party or integrated services, which may have their own policies and should be contacted directly. When we say ‘personal data’ we mean identifiable information about you, like your name, email, biographical details, demographic information and your responses to our questionnaires. If you can’t be identified (for example, when personal data has been aggregated and anonymised) then this notice doesn’t apply. Who are ‘we’? When we refer to ‘we’ (or ‘our’ or ‘us’), that means The Talent Collaboratory FZ-LLC and all its wholly owned subsidiaries. Our headquarters are in Dubai, UAE, although we operate and have operations a growing number of other locations across the world. Our global principles of data protection are built around four key principles. They’re at the heart of everything we do relating to personal data.
  1. Transparency: We take a human approach to how we process personal data by being open, honest and transparent.
  2. Enablement: We enable connections and efficient use of personal data to empower productivity improvements and to provide more powerful insights into individual strengths and preferences.
  3. Security: We champion industry leading approaches to securing any personal data entrusted to us.
  4. Stewardship: We accept the responsibility that comes with processing personal data.

How we collect your data:

When you use our services, complete one of our questionnaires or visit our website, we collect personal data. The ways we collect it can be broadly categorised into the following: Information you provide to us directly: When you visit or use some parts of our websites, complete a questionnaire or use our services we might ask you to provide personal data to us. If you don’t want to provide us with personal data, you don’t have to, but it might mean you can’t use some parts of our websites or services and we may not be able to provide your full results in any reporting. Information we collect automatically: We may collect some information about you automatically when you visit our websites or use our services, like your IP address and device type. We also collect information when you navigate through our websites and services, including what pages you looked at, what actions you performed in our software and what links you clicked on. This information is useful for us as it helps us get a better understanding of how you’re using our services so that we can continue to provide the best experience possible (e.g., by personalising the content you see). Information we get from third parties: The majority of information we collect, we collect directly from you. Sometimes we might collect personal data about you from other sources, such as your current or prospective employer or trusted third parties, which may have other services or questionnaires integrated with our own. In the case of the former, where our clients are current or existing employers, they would typically be acting as “data controllers”, and our client should be the main point of contact for communication with their own users, depending on their corporate data security procedures. We use this information to supplement the personal data we already hold about you, in order to better inform, personalise and improve our services, and to analyse the personal data you provide to us directly. Where we collect personal data, we’ll only process it:
  • to perform a contract with you, your current or prospective employer or
  • where we have legitimate interests to process the personal data and they’re not overridden by your rights, e.g. for research purposes, or:
  • in accordance with a legal obligation, or
  • where we have your consent.
If we don’t collect your personal data, we may be unable to provide you with all our services, and some functions and features on our websites and reports may not be fully available to you.

How we use your data:

To support you: This may include assisting with the resolution of technical support issues or other issues relating to our services, whether by email, in-app support or otherwise. To enhance our services and develop new ones: For example, by tracking and monitoring your use of our services so we can keep improving, or by carrying out technical analysis of our software so that we can optimise your user experience and provide you with more efficient productivity tools and strengths analytics. To protect: So that we can detect and prevent any fraudulent or malicious activity, and make sure that everyone is using our services authentically, consistently and in accordance with our terms of use. To analyse, aggregate and report: We may use the personal data we collect about you and other users of our services (whether obtained directly or from third parties) to produce aggregated and anonymised analytics and reports, which we may share publicly or with third parties.
