Privacy & Cookies

Talentsift recognises the importance of protecting the privacy of all information of users of our Website and Products, as well as recipients of our e-mail newsletters. We created this Privacy Policy with a fundamental respect for visitors’, customers’ and candidates’ right to privacy. This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices of the Talentsift website (hereinafter referred to as the “Website”, including also all other URLs that are forwarded to the Website) and the products featured on the Website, i.e., the Talentsift Assessment Centre and the Talentsift Psychometric Tests (hereinafter referred to as the “Products”).

Information Collection and Use

We collect information from visitors, users and customers of the Website and the Products. In this section of our Privacy Policy, we describe the type of information we collect and how we use it to provide better services.

Communications with Us

We have features where users of our Website can submit information to us. Where such submissions include requests for service, support or information, we may forward them to our agents and/or Occupational Psychologists, as needed, to best respond to the specific request. In addition, we may retain e-mails and other information sent to us for our internal administrative purposes, and to help us serve customers better. Users can request the deletion of any communication with us, unless we are required by law or due to legal interests to maintain such correspondence.

Communications from Us

Customers subscribing to our services and candidates screened with our products receive service-essential messages at the e-mail address they have provided to us. These messages are strictly limited to communication necessary to use our services.

In addition to such service-essential messages, we offer our customers the option to receive information about Talentsift, our products, services and special offers. However, such information is only sent to users who have explicitly authorised us to send them such information in accordance with the double opt-in method described below under the heading “E-mail Newsletters”.

Candidates Using Our Products

People taking our psychometric tests and/or participating in our assessment centres are requested to review and accept our Privacy Policy before they start using our Products. Below we describe how we collect, store and forward personal information when candidates use our Products.

We receive basic information (name and e-mail address) necessary to identify candidates screened with our psychometric tests and/or assessment centre platform from our customers (employers).

We store the candidates’ responses to and the score they achieve at our psychometric tests. We also store candidates’ responses and the evaluation by assessors of their performance at the assessment centre they participate in.

We generate a candidate report on each candidate for the use of the customer (employer). For candidates taking a psychometric test the report includes the candidate’s name, e-mail address, psychometric test score, and his/her ranking vis-a-vis the relevant norm group (created to represent the relevant population). For candidates participating in an assessment centre, the report includes the candidate’s name, e-mail address and his/her evaluation by the assessors. These reports are normally shared with the customer (employer).

In case, a candidate would not like us to store any of the data we have on file on him/her (name, results, etc.), he/she can request us to delete that information and we will comply with his/her request as quickly as we can. Also, if a candidate does not want us to forward information on his/her result to the customer (employer), we will not do so and will only inform the customer (employer) of the reason for not being able to forward such information to them.

E-mail Newsletters

We use a double opt-in method for e-mail newsletter subscriptions. First, users must explicitly express their intention to sign-up to our newsletter by providing their e-mail address on the Website. Users then will have to activate their subscription to our newsletter by clicking on the activation link included in the e-mail message we send to our customers subscribing to our newsletters. In case, we provide multiple newsletters, recipients will only receive newsletters which they have explicitly subscribed to through the double opt-in method described above. Recipients of our newsletters can unsubscribe any time using the instructions listed at the end of the e-mail newsletter.

We use an outside platform provided by an e-mail delivery company (whose name is always indicated in our newsletter) to send email newsletters to our users. The platform we use is capable of tracking (on an aggregated basis) the number of newsletters opened by our customers. This information is only available to us on an aggregated basis and we use it to measure the effectiveness of our communication with our customers.

Information collected by these automated tools does not permit identification of individual users and is only available to us in an aggregated fashion. We use this information for our internal security audit log, trend analysis and system administration, and to gather statistical information about our user base and their preferences on an aggregated basis. Ultimately, such aggregated information can help us to improve our services.


The Website also uses “cookies”, a piece of data stored in the user’s internet browser based on the user’s IP address. Users can disallow the use of cookies by changing the settings of their browser or clicking on the button below. This Website uses two types of cookies.

The first type of cookie we use help return users use the Website by storing their contact information at two occasions: (i) the name and e-mail address they provide when commenting on a blog post is saved; and (ii) their contact information is saved when using the “Contact Us” function of the Website. These functions save time for return users contacting us and/or commenting on our posts.

Second, we also use Google Analytics, which uses so called “analytical cookies”. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily. More can be read on Google Analytics’ cookie policy on Google’s privacy policy.

With Whom Your Information is Shared

We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or other legal obligation, in response to a law enforcement body’s request, or in special cases when we have good reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property.

We may share aggregated information, which is not personally identifiable, on our users (such as number of users, users’ age group, geographic location, etc.) with our business partners to help them better understand our services.

Some of our agents will have access to certain parts of our Website in order to permit them to provide their services for us. These agents’ access to information is always limited to what is inevitable for providing their services. These agents are required to comply with the Privacy Policy contained herein and shall agree not to use any information accessed as part of their services for any purpose other than providing the relevant services to us.

While we do our best efforts to make sure that third parties respect the personal information provided to them, these third parties will use the information according to their own privacy policies. We urge participants to read those policies and be aware of their privacy practices before using our services.


We do our best to protect our customers’ personal information and to store it securely. Access to all of our customers’ information, including sensitive information mentioned above, is always restricted. Only employees or agents who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are always kept in a secure environment.


For billing purposes, we require our customers to provide their name and billing address. Customers are allowed to view, change or delete their billing information by contacting us at the address indicated below.
