1. Who we are

Hello, we are Persometrics, and our address is Chemin de la Rosiere 58, 1012 Lausanne.

2. Definitions

Before continuing, please see these simple definitions of the levels of anonymity of information as used throughout this policy.

  • Personal information

Information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, email address, IP address, home address, or payment details as used during the purchase.

  • Sensitive information

Data from physiological tests (such as hormonal data) or data from questionnaires that may reveal characteristics about your traits or emotional states. This could for instance be the result from a personality questionnaire.

  • Anonymized information

These are data from tests or questionnaires that is no longer associated with your personal information or which have been combined with other data so that it cannot be used to identify you as an individual.

3. Why we collect your data.

There are several reasons to collect data, and we have listed them here.

  • To provide you with a service

    This means we need to collect your data in order to provide you with a report or product of any kind. This requires the collection of sensitive information for generating the report, and personal information for shipping and payment, for instance.
  • To improve your customer experience

    This relates to things such as making sure your account is set in your language of preference, and send you relevant information about our services (if you consent).
  • For research and marketing purposes

    We believe in science and when we can we give back to the scientific community. We also use anonymized data to improve our services.

6. Your rights

You can at any moment request to see any information we hold on you. You can also request to change it by contacting us.

Please note that once your data has been anonymised you cannot delete it because it is impossible to retrieve it.
