1. What information is collected by MindWise and how is it used?
MindWise is committed to protecting the privacy of personal information to the extent possible, subject to applicable state and federal law. Other than as required by laws that guarantee public access to certain types of information, or in response to subpoenas or other legal instruments that authorize access, personal information is not actively shared. In particular, we do not distribute or sell personal information collected on our web servers.
We do not collect any protected health information and we are committed to protecting your personal privacy. We do not require collection of any information about you that allows us or our sponsors (such as employers, health care companies, or universities) to identify you. Instead, we only collect basic demographic information about each user, such as their age, gender and marital status. This information does not allow us to identify you as an individual.
We collect this information to allow us to provide our sponsors with general, aggregated reports about the people using our site. These reports allow our sponsors to create services more targeted to the needs of their constituents. For example, we provide our sponsors with the percentage of men and women using our site.
When you complete a screening, we collect the responses to each question. We save these responses in order to provide you with the results of the test and to create the aggregated reports provided to our sponsors.
We do not collect information about our users through log files. The company to which we outsource our web hosting function may collect the domains previously viewed by our visitors, but MindWise does not obtain or share this information with any other entity.
3. What security protections are in place on the Site?
MindWise has implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security to secure your personal information. To prevent unauthorized access and ensure the appropriate use of information, MindWise has put into place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures that safeguard and secure our Site.
4. What policies apply to links out to third-party websites?
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include, offer or link to third-party products or services on our Site. These third-party websites may have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content, activities and data collection and use practices of these linked websites. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of the websites you visit.
5. How can I contact MindWise with questions or comments about privacy issues?

MindWise does not market to or knowingly collect information from anyone under the age of 13. Children should always receive permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) to anyone over the Internet.
