Welcome to the ITAP International website (the "Site"). ITAP International Inc. ("ITAP International", "we", "us" or "our") is committed to protecting your privacy and providing a secure online environment to support your learning and development. We provide consulting and blended-learning solutions containing web-based applications, online assessments and surveys created and hosted by ITAP International on behalf of our clients.
Information We Collect
ITAP International collects basic contact information, which may include but is not limited to the following: name, telephone number, and email. ITAP uses this information to contact parties who inquire about our services via a form or email address on our Site. ITAP does not sell or share your contact information with third parties. You may opt out of receiving communications from ITAP (see Opting Out below).
ITAP may also collect demographic information which is anonymized and used only in research as collective data.
ITAP collects information through the Culture in the Workplace Questionnaire™ and other assessment tools such as the Global Team Process Questionnaire™. This information is used to enable program participants to complete online questionnaires and to provide the questionnaire result pages and is treated as confidential information. ITAP International may use this information to contact the participant and send notifications or reminders in order to facilitate the training process, and to produce the results pages.
The information we collect in online surveys is used in aggregate for internal research purposes. In general, we do not divulge individual responses to surveys except for participant names. Third parties administer some of our surveys, but they are expected not to reveal, except to the participant providing the data, any of the individual data they help collect or are provided.
On occasions, we may share question responses with external facilitators who work with us or with third parties to analyze the data; in these cases, we expect the facilitators and third parties to maintain the same level of confidentiality and security as employed by ITAP International. In the event of a breach of information by a third party, ITAP will work with the third party to repair the breach and determine liability, if any. In the case of proper onward transfers, ITAP accepts liability. ITAP International does not use Personal Information for marketing purposes, and we do not disclose Personal Information to any third parties except as noted above or as required by law.
