Caliper Canada Privacy Statement
At Caliper Canada, we are committed to protecting your privacy, and support a general policy of openness about how we collect, use and disclose your personal information.
Caliper Canada provides services to employers or other organizations considering a hiring, developmental or promotional decision about an individual by conducting an assessment based on responses to the Caliper Profile. The Caliper Profile is a comprehensive, non-discriminatory personality assessment instrument that measures an individual’s characteristics, potential and motivation.
The purpose of this Privacy Statement is to inform you about Caliper Canada’s practices relating to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information that may be provided through access to or use of our websites or services or that may otherwise be collected by us. By completing the Caliper Profile you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
We strongly recommend that you take the time to read this Privacy Statement and retain it for future reference.
For the purpose of this Privacy Statement, “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual, but does not include the name, title or business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization.

- Bill the employer or organization considering you for a hiring, developmental or promotional position for our products and services;
When We Disclose Your Personal Information
We do not disclose personal information collected from the completed Caliper Profile Form.
Caliper Canada discloses the results of its assessment (in a confidential written document and verbal communication) only to your employer or the organization considering you for a hiring, developmental or promotional decision except as described below. Information identifying individuals who complete Caliper Profile Forms will not be disclosed to any other third party for this purpose or be revealed in population analysis or benchmark reports.
Caliper Canada also reserves the right to disclose and/or transfer personal information to a third party in the event of a proposed or actual purchase, sale, lease, merger, amalgamation or any other type of acquisition, disposal or financing of all or any portion of Caliper Canada or of any of the business or assets or shares of Caliper Canada or a division thereof, provided that the transferor agrees to restrict its use or disclosure of the personal information to the purposes set out in this Privacy Statement, except upon further notification to you.

Retention of Your Personal Information
Your personal information will be retained by Caliper Canada and its headquarters in New Jersey, U.S.A. for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected and to comply with applicable laws, and your consent to such purposes(s) remains valid after termination of our relationship with you. For greater certainty, Caliper Canada retains all raw data and assessments to create benchmarks and population tests. No personal information is disclosed in this process. In addition, Caliper Canada has established retention guidelines and will retain completed Caliper Profile Forms in digitally encrypted form for a period of 5 years to ensure consistency between new and prior Caliper Profile Forms which have completed by the same individual.
Upon request, we will inform an individual of the existence, use and disclosure of his or her personal information. We will provide individuals with access to their completed Caliper Profile answer sheet. Requests for information about completed assessment forms or individual developmental guides should be made of the employer or organization that ordered the assessment from Caliper Canada.
