By submitting your information to us through the creation of a new account, or through an existing account, you agree to the practices described herein.
This website is operated in the United States, and the information collected through it may be retained indefinitely, and may be stored, accessed, or used in jurisdictions whose privacy laws may be different, or less protective, than those of your home jurisdiction.
The underlying principles of this policy
CAPT is committed to protecting the privacy of all those who use our sites. To accomplish this commitment, we will
- Respect your privacy
- Collect and use personal information only for legitimate reasons
- Do our utmost to protect personal information through current technological security
- Promote and adhere to the ethical guidelines related to the assessments we publish, distribute, sell, or use for research purposes
- Meet current ethical and governmental standards as they relate to research involving people, especially with those projects that involve school aged children
- Protect personal information of research participants when engaged in projects with organizations and/or educational entities not legally affiliated with CAPT
We adhere to the above principles as they relate to all websites and domains owned or managed by CAPT, including but not limited to capt.org (including www.capt.org/assessment-mmtic), mbtimasterpractitioner.org, mbtireferralnetwork.org, typeforkids.org, aprincessandhergarden.com, typecan.com, mbticertification.org, and kleingroupinstrument.org.
The information we collect from those who visit our website
CAPT collects two types of data from people who visit www.capt.org:
1) When you come to this website, some information may be automatically collected as part of business operations, including your IP address and navigational information. Your name, address, phone number, email address, password, and other information needed for specific purposes are obtained when you create an online account with us.
2) CAPT also collects survey data from clients who willingly provide that information. 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.
CAPT uses tracking technology, referred to as "cookies," which are small text files stored by a browser on your computer, tablet, or mobile phone. These cookies provide a "memory" of website use and enable us to recognize user patterns. CAPT uses this information to track general user patterns in order to improve site performance. The information we gather through the use of tracking technologies is aggregated and cannot be matched with any personally identifiable information about you.
From time to time we may share aggregate data collected through responses given for surveys and/or assessments with other publishers, training organizations, professional groups, or researchers for educational purposes, assessment development, and/or web site improvements. This aggregate information is never associated with your name or other personally identifiable information.
If you provide us with personally identifiable information, we use the information only to the extent necessary to provide you with products, reports, and/or services that you have requested, inquired about, or ordered. Information provided by you in response to assessment forms that are available on our site are available only to authorized CAPT personnel, your designated facilitator, or counselor.
The information we collect and how we use it
CAPT collects information from individuals when an account is created, most commonly for the purpose of enrolling in and paying for an educational program, such as the MMTIC® Certification Program, or purchasing a product such as a book or assessment administration.
When you create an account we will ask for your address, phone number, email address, and information for a method of payment. As a matter of policy, CAPT does not store credit card numbers and will not share customer financial transaction information with any other entity.
CAPT will not share personally identifiable information with entities unrelated to CAPT. We may, however, use such information to notify you of important changes to our website or of special offers, services, or products we think you'll find valuable. You may opt out of these notifications at any time.
CAPT engages in online advertising placements with third party providers, including but not limited to Google and Bing ads. CAPT does not gather personally identifiable information from the "clicks" on these ads, although access to the data gathered by these third party providers is made available to us. Information received by CAPT from these ad placements includes aggregate data on demographics, geographic location, types of web browsers, computers, platforms, internet service providers, or any search terms entered on the referring website. This aggregate data cannot be traced to an individual.
CAPT reserves 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 the legal process, response to claims, or to protect the rights, property or safety of CAPT's Board of Directors, its employees, customers, clients, or the general public.
Other than as described above, CAPT does not sell, rent, or provide access to information about its clients and customers to third parties.
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. The CAPT website is designed for use by adults, with the exception of the Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children (MMTIC®) assessment. The MMTIC® assessment is available only through the password-protected MMTIC® Facilitator's Interface. Before a child under the age of thirteen can take an assessment that is published or distributed by CAPT, written permission from a parent or guardian must be obtained. A standard permission letter can be found here.
