Privacy Policy for People Stripes

Welcome to our website's Privacy Policy. What you read here addresses services offered by People Stripes a division of Center for Applications of Psychological Type, Inc. (hereinafter, "CAPT"), including information-gathering and dissemination practices for the web services at http://www.peoplestripes.org and linked pages (collectively, "website" or "our site").

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, and you represent that you are at least 18 years of age.

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

  1. Respect your privacy
  2. Collect and use personal information only for legitimate reasons
  3. Do our utmost to protect personal information through current technological security
  4. Promote and adhere to the ethical guidelines related to the assessments we publish, distribute, sell, or use for research purposes
  5. Meet current ethical and governmental standards as they relate to research involving people, especially with those projects that involve school aged children
  6. 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.peoplestripes.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

You can access and retrieve information from our website without having to enter personal data. We collect personal data only with your knowledge and prior approval. When we collect data, it is voluntary for registration, order and survey purposes using forms, or via e-mail.

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.

This information is used to constantly analyze and improve our customer service and for protection against fraud. In due time, this information will be blocked or deleted, as permitted by law. In addition to this information, for security reasons, each time you access our server, our server and your browser automatically transmit, record and save data which possibly permit identification (such as the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the system you are using to access our Web site; the IP address of the Web site that referred you; your browser type, date and time). This information is not processed on a personal basis.

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.

We reserve the right to make data anonymous and prepare statistical evaluations that do not allow personal inferences to be drawn. These evaluations may be used for marketing, promotion and other purposes. We will never make available information that allows personal identification of individuals.

Cookies

This website uses cookies, which are necessary to its functioning and required to achieve the purposes illustrated in this privacy policy. These functional cookies are required for your security and your user experience. The information we gather through the use of tracking technologies is aggregated and cannot be matched with any personally identifiable information about you.

You can decline cookies at any time if your browser allows you to do this. Depending on your browser's settings, you will receive a notification that our server wants to place a cookie with a particular lifespan on your computer. However, we would like to point out that it will be impossible for you to use our order system if you decline functional cookies. Whenever our cookies contain personal data, we expressly inform you and ask for your consent (opt-in) before saving the cookie to your computer. .

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.

From time to time CAPT will present webinars, online meetings or similar services via third party providers such as GoToMeeting. Users may be able to register for such webinars and services directly with these third party providers, and any personally identifiable information collected by them in connection with these registrations may be shared with CAPT. This information will also be subject to that third party provider's privacy policy. In some cases, users may be able to access an online meeting by registering with CAPT, and, in such situations, any personally identifiable information disclosed during participation in these services would be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

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 Interface. Before a child under the age of thirteen can enter data online for a CAPT assessment - or have it entered for them - written permission from a parent or guardian must be obtained.
