- Information Collection Practices.
- Types of Information Collected.
- Technical Information.The data described in this section is collectively considered "Technical Information".
- Traffic Data. We (and third-party services) automatically track and collect information when you visit the Service including, for example: (1) IP addresses; (2) domain servers; (3) types of computers or devices accessing the Service; and (4) types of web browsers or applications used to access the Service (collectively "Traffic Data"). Traffic Data is generally used for marketing purposes or for improving your experience on the Service.
- Analytics Data. We use analytics tools and other third party technologies, such as Google Analytics, to collect non-personal information in the form of various usage and user metrics when you use our Service. These tools and technologies collect and analyze certain types of information, including mobile device identifiers, cookies, IP addresses, device and software identifiers, referring and exit URLs, onsite behavior and usage information, feature use metrics and statistics, usage and purchase history, and other similar information (collectively, "Analytics Data") on our Service and across other websites and apps over time. For more information about how Google Analytics collects and uses data when you use our Service, visit https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/, and to opt out of Google Analytics, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
- Location Data. We may collect location data from your mobile device if you enable location-based services.
- Personal Information. The data described in this section is collectively considered "Personal Information".
- Account Information and Communication. Although you may freely visit the Site, to use the Service you must create a TestMax account. While visiting the Site or using our Service, we collect information you provide us about yourself ("Personal Information"). Personal Information includes the following categories of information: (1) "Contact Data" (such as your name, physical address, telephone number and e-mail address); (2) "Financial Data" (such as your payment card, bank account or PayPal account information); (3) "Demographic Data" (such as your zip code, age and gender); and (4) "Account Data" (such as your account password). If you communicate with us by e-mail, telephone, or our customer service chat messages; post messages to any of our chat groups, bulletin boards, or forums; purchase our products and services; subscribe to our mailing list; or otherwise complete online forms, surveys or contest entries, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information.
- Education Data. When you use the Service, we collect certain data about your performance, including without limitation, your scores and progress. We also collect information you provide related to your educational history, such as your grade point average, schools attended and graduation year, and results from live exams you have taken, such as the Law School Admission Test.
- User Choice Regarding Collection of Personal Information. You may choose not to provide us with any Personal Information. In such an event, you can still access and use parts of the Service; however, you will not be able to access and use those portions of the Service that require your Personal Information. Under certain circumstances, the provision of Personal Information is sometimes required by law and at other times is a result of a contractual requirement. You may be required to provide Personal Information, for example in a case where we sign a contract with you, and the non-provision of Personal Information could, in certain circumstances, prevent a transaction from concluding.
- Uses and Sharing of Information Collected.
- Our Use of Technical Information. We use Technical Information for marketing purposes or for operating and improving the Service. Third-party companies that collect Technical Information can collect, use, and share information under their own privacy policies and TestMax does not control their practices.
- Our Use of Personal Information. We use your Personal Information for any lawful purpose, including the uses described in this section. We use Contact Data to send you information about us and the Service or promotional material from some of our partners, or to contact you when necessary in order to provide the Service. By giving us your phone number, you consent to receive text messages from TestMax. Message & data rates may apply. We use your Financial Data to bill you and/or issue refunds to you for the Service. We use your Demographic Data to customize and tailor your experience on the Service, and for displaying content that we think you might be interested in and according to your preferences. We also use your Education Data to customize and tailor your experience on the Service. Where we intend to process your Personal Information for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was collected, we will notify you prior to processing your Personal Information for the new purpose.
- Additional Disclosures of Personal Information. We also share (and/or provide access to) Personal Information with our business partners who assist us in performing services (including, without limitation, as hosting, billing, fulfillment, or data storage and security) related to our operation of the Service. In order to accommodate changes in our business, we may undertake a corporate sale, merger, acquisition, or other transfer of all or part of our assets, including as part of a bankruptcy proceeding. If TestMax or its assets are involved in these transactions, customer information will be one of the assets transferred. We also disclose Personal Information pursuant to a subpoena, court order, governmental inquiry, or other legal process or as otherwise required by law, or to protect our rights or the rights of third parties. We disclose Personal Information with your consent or as otherwise disclosed at the time of data collection or sharing.
- Security of Personal Information. We maintain reasonable and appropriate safeguards to help protect your Personal Information from loss and from unauthorized acquisition.
- How We Respond to ‘Do Not Track' Signals. Do Not Track ("DNT") is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. We do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.
Interest-Based Advertising. We may partner with ad networks and other ad serving providers ("Advertising Providers") who serve ads on behalf of us and others on the Service and on non-affiliated sites and mobile apps. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be more relevant to you based on information Advertising Providers collect about your visits to our Service and other non-affiliated websites and mobile apps over time on your browser or device, as well as on the browsers or devices associated with it. This practice is known as interest-based advertising ("IBA").
You may visit www.aboutads.info/choices to learn more about this type of advertising and to opt out of this form of advertising on your browser by companies participating in the DAA self-regulatory program. To learn more about your choices on mobile devices and to opt out of IBA in mobile apps from companies participating in the DAA self-regulatory program, you can download the relevant version of the DAA's AppChoices tool at www.youradchoices.com/appchoices.
When you exercise your choice, data will not be collected or used for IBA on that browser or device. Additionally, data from associated browsers and devices will not be used for IBA on the device where the choice was made. Note that electing to opt out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser or applications, but it may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests. In addition, note that if you use a different browser or device, or erase your cookies or reset your mobile device identifier, you will need to renew your opt-out choice.
International Visitors. This section applies to those that use our Service from the European Economic Area or Switzerland.
TestMax processes Personal Information with your consent (e.g., when TestMax processes personal information to provide goods and services you request, such as communications related to a mailing list to which you subscribe).
On other occasions, TestMax may process Personal Information when it needs to do this to fulfill a contract (for example, to process course enrollments) or where required to do this by law.
If necessary, TestMax may also process Personal Information when it is in TestMax's legitimate interests to do this (e.g., for customer service, measuring your test performance, improving the TestMax services) and when these interests are not overridden by your data protection rights.
Please be aware that the Personal Information we collect may be transferred to and maintained on servers or databases located outside your state, province, country, or other jurisdiction, where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your location. TestMax transfers Personal Information from the EEA and Switzerland when the transfer is needed for TestMax to provide services to you that you have requested, or with your consent.
