Welcome to the Center for Applications of Psychological Type, Inc. (hereinafter, "CAPT") Privacy Statement. This Statement describes CAPT's information gathering and dissemination practices for our web services at http://www.capt.org/ and linked pages (collectively, "the web site" or "our site"), and for our assessment services.
By submitting your information to CAPT, you agree to the practices described herein. This website is operated in the United States, and the information collected from this site may be retained indefinitely, and may be stored, accessed, and used in jurisdictions whose privacy laws may be different or less protective than those of your home jurisdiction. CAPT may disclose credit card information to necessary payment processors or provide survey data results to individuals (e.g., coaches and counselors) and/or organizations whose responsibilities include interpretation and feedback for assessments completed by clients. The privacy policies and practices of such entities may be different from those of CAPT, and CAPT assumes no responsibility for the actions of these entities. We reserve the right to disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, or in the good faith belief that such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, respond to claims, or protect the rights, property or safety of CAPT, employees, clients, or the public. Other than as described above CAPT does not sell or rent information about its clients to third parties.
Collection and Use of User Information
CAPT collects two types of data from individuals:
- When you visit this website, some information may be collected automatically as part of the site's operation, such as your IP address and navigational information. This information is not stored in any way that attaches it to a particular individual. Your name, address, phone number, email address, and other information are collected when you make a purchase online with us. We may also use tracking technology to track general user traffic patterns. The information we gather through the use of tracking technologies cannot be matched with any personally identifiable information about you unless you have specifically given us this information.
- CAPT also collects survey data for clients who contract for that service. These data involve responses to assessment instruments designed to measure personal preferences in how an individual takes in and processes information, or agrees/disagrees with behavioral statements. Such information is collected only when it is knowingly provided.
CAPT maintains strict security over all information you share, and uses such information to provide you with a better web site, personal feedback to assist you in self-understanding and improvement, and/or related services. We may share aggregate data collected in surveys and assessments (but not personal data that can be identified as linked to any specific individual) with other publishers, training organizations, professional groups, or researchers for further assessment instrument or web site improvements.
CAPT will not share any personally identifiable information with entities unrelated to CAPT, or its affiliated parties. We may, however, use such information to notify you of important changes to our web site or of special offers, services, or products we think you'll find valuable. This will only be done with your ongoing permission, and you will have at any time an option to be removed from such contact.

Guidelines Regarding Children
Personal information about children is a concern for all of us. At CAPT, we take the protection of children's privacy very seriously. We do not encourage use of or visitation to our web site by children or their completion of any CAPT online assessment instruments without permission by a parent or guardian. If you are under thirteen, you may use this web site or complete an assessment only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
CAPT has numerous stringent security measures in place to protect you from the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Whenever you submit an order to CAPT, you can do so over a secure (i.e., encrypted) connection. This ensures that your personal information is not at risk. We do not store credit card information longer than needed to complete your transaction. Only trained, authorized CAPT personnel have access to your personal information relating to surveys and assessments. To help maintain high levels of security, we request that you do not include any credit card information in email correspondence with CAPT.
Access, Data Integrity, and CAPT Responsiveness
You may at any time request access to the personal data we have on file for you, subject to verification of the authenticity of the request. You have the right to review this personal information for accuracy, currency, and completeness, subject to the limitations of the rights of other relevant parties (e.g., an employer who commissions an assessment that involves your participation). CAPT agrees to expeditiously correct such information where allowed and appropriate.
