What does Cappfinity Limited do? Cappfinity Limited is an assessment technology company, headquartered in the United Kingdom but with operations globally. Our products and services are used by people and clients around the world to assess people for selection, development and transformation.
For more information about Cappfinity Limited, please see the "About" section of our Website at http://www.cappfinity.com/about.
What personal information does Cappfinity Limited collect and why? The personal information that we may collect about you broadly falls into the following categories:
Information that you provide voluntarily Certain parts of our Website may ask you to provide personal information voluntarily: for example, we may ask you to provide your contact details in order to register an account with us, to subscribe to marketing communications from us, and/or to submit enquiries to us. The personal information that you are asked to provide, and the reasons why you are asked to provide it, will be made clear to you at the point we ask you to provide your personal information.
Within Cappfinity assessments, some of the personal information that you provide may include sensitive personal information, such as health-related information or information about your race or ethnicity, which we need for providing adjustments to our assessments (in the case of relevant disability information), and for monitoring the statistical performance of our assessments in keeping with equality law.
Further, we may also request sensitive personal information when we have been instructed to do so by our client, who is the Data Controller, and Cappfinity is the Data Processor.
You may be invited to take part in a telephone or video interview, the answers you provide may be recorded and these recorded answers may be made available to an end-client such as a hiring employer. If you were to take part in a telephone or video interview as part of a process for a specific organisation (for example, but not limited to, a hiring employer), that organisation will be the Data Controller and Cappfinity will be the Data Processor. If you were to take part in a telephone or video interview as part of a Cappfinity process (for example, but not limited to, Cappfinity VEE or Jobmi), then Cappfinity will be the Data Controller.

In some countries, including countries in the European Economic Area, this information may be considered personal information under applicable data protection laws.
Specifically, the information we collect automatically may include information like your IP address, device type, unique device identification numbers, browser-type, broad geographic location (e.g. country or city-level location) and other technical information. We may also collect information about how your device has interacted with our Website, including the pages accessed and links clicked.
Collecting this information enables us to better understand the visitors who come to our Website, where they come from, and what content on our Website is of interest to them. We use this information for our internal analytics purposes and to improve the quality and relevance of our Website to our visitors.
Some of this information may be collected using cookies and similar tracking technology, as explained further under the heading "Cookies and similar tracking technology" below.
Information that we obtain from third party sources From time to time, we may receive personal information about you from third party sources (including clients who ask us to process your personal data on their behalf), but only where we have checked that these third parties either have your consent or are otherwise legally permitted or required to disclose your personal information to us.
The types of information we collect from third parties include for example, your name and email address, and we use the information we receive from these third parties to deliver our service to you, providing you with a consistent user experience and ensuring that we can associate the right assessment data with the right person.
How does Cappfinity Limited process my personal information?
We may process your personal information as follows:
your name, email address and password may be used to manage your account settings, link to your assessment data, and manage our communications with you;
any personal information you provide in relation to a disability may be used to provide reasonable adjustments to any assessment that we provide to you;
any personal information you provide in relation to gender, ethnicity, age, social background or sexual orientation may be used for aggregate level analysis only to compare differences between groups;
any responses you provide explicitly in response to an assessment question may be processed using automated decision making in relation to the scoring of the assessment, and in relation to your progression in a selection and recruitment process, but your personal information in relation to name, email address, gender, ethnicity, age, social background or sexual orientation will never be used as part of automated decision
In some instances, our use of your personal information may result in automated decisions being taken (including profiling) that legally affect you or similarly significantly affect you.
Automated decisions mean that a decision concerning you is made automatically on the basis of a computer determination (using software algorithms), without our human review. For example, we use automated
decisions to calculate scores on our assessments and to determine your progression through a selection and recruitment process. We have implemented measures to safeguard the rights and interests of individuals whose personal information is subject to automated decision-making, including ensuring that it is only explicit assessment data (e.g. your responses to explicit assessment questions) that is used in automated decision making and n ever demographic personal information (e.g. your name, email address, gender, age, ethnicity, social background or sexual orientation).
When we make an automated decision about you, you have the right to contest the decision, to express your point of view, and to require a human review of the decision. You can exercise this right by contact us using the contact details provided under the “How to contact us” heading below.
Who does Cappfinity share my personal information with?
We may disclose your personal information to the following categories of recipients:
to a Cappfinity client who is the Data Controller for your personal information, typically in a situation where you have opted to provide your personal information to this client as the Data Controller, by taking a Cappfinity assessment where Cappfinity is the Data Processor;
to any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary (i) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (ii) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights, or (iii) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person;
to any other person with your consent to the
Legal basis for processing personal information (EEA visitors only)
If you are a visitor from the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.
However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person (e.g. to communicate with you about the status of your Cappfinity assessment).
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).
Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.
If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the contact details provided under the “How to contact us ” heading below.
