What information do we gather about you?
Automatically collected information
In case you're just browsing our website, we collect the same general information that most of the sites out there do, such as cookies and web server logs. We collect this from everybody, no matter whether you're taking our tests or just reading the articles on our website.
Our website uses HTTPS encryption in the communication between your browser and our servers, so the information will not be transferred without encryption over the internet.
We also use Google Analytics product to monitor users visiting our website. Google Analytics collects information about visitor's browser type, language, referring site, date and time of each request, and much more. Please read more about Google Analytics from the link above.

How is the information used?
The information is used to calculate an accurate IQ score for the visitor from the data he/she provides us. From the optional fields 3-8 (see the chapter "Personal information you provide to us"), we also make a paid PDF report with an in-depth peer group analysis if that information is given to us.
Your IP address is collected for tax reasons to locate your country. We are using IP location service called "IPAPI" (https://ipapi.com) to resolve your country based on your IP address. HTTPS Encryption is used between our servers and IPAPI service.
Who do we share your personal information with?
Disclosure of your personal information
How long we retain your personal information?
We will retain your personal information only for as long as it is necessary to calculate the IQ Score reliably and to form a peer group analysis based on the information you give to us with the help of the Gaussian curve.
For performance reasons, we might clean up our database at quantitative intervals. However, your information will be saved for at least 14 days to allow you to download the IQ Test Report within the time slot. We will not guarantee that the IQ Test Results will be available for download later.
