1. Information Collection
You may view some areas of our site for free and register for a free account. We collect information such as your name, address, email. We use this information to contact you about the services on our site in which you have expressed interest. If you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and address).
We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you. When you register on NextGenAssessments.com, you will receive a short welcome email. If you opt to receive newsletters from us, you will receive a monthly email. Any other material you provide us (including images, email addresses, etc.) will be held in the strictest confidence. In addition, we do not collect personally identifiable information about you except when you specifically provide this information on a voluntary basis. We will make every effort to ensure that whatever information you provide will be maintained in a secure environment.
As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
Information gathered through cookies also helps us measure use of our website. Cookie data allow us to track usage behavior and compile data that we can use to improve the site. This data will be used in aggregate form; no specific users will be tracked.
2. Information Use
NextGenAssessments.com reserves the right to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics. We do this in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the website. NextGenAssessments.com collects IP addresses for system administration and record keeping. Your IP address is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the World Wide Web. Our servers record incoming IP addresses. The IP addresses are analyzed only in aggregate; no connection is made between you and your computer’s IP address. By tracking IP addresses, we can determine which sites refer the most people to NextGenAssessments.com. (Think of an IP address like your zip code; it tells us in general terms where you’re from.)
3. Communications from the Site
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.
Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we will send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, in accordance with your wishes.
If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter(s), we will use your name and email address to send the newsletter to you. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide you a way to unsubscribe. Please see the "Opting out" section.
Sending Emails on User's Behalf
We also send survey invitation emails on behalf of our customers. The customer’s email list is stored on our system, but is not used by NextGenAssessments.com in any other way.
Surveys or Contests
From time-to-time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code).
We use this information to notify contest winners and to monitor site traffic or personalize the site (in the case of anonymous information collected in surveys).
We post testimonials from time to time. We always receive permission to post prior to posting.
Upon request, NextGenAssessments.com will allow any user to opt out of our monthly newsletter. You can contact us through Help@NextGenAssessments.com or follow the unsubscribe instructions included in each promotional email sent to you including the newsletter.
