Who does Mind Gym share the personal data with?
We use a number of service providers to provide the Diagnostic. We have set out below the service providers we use, the services they provide and the types of personal data they might process. These service providers only process personal data in accordance with our instructions and only to the extent necessary to provide their services, and their processing is subject to contracts with us to ensure they process personal data in accordance with data protection laws in the UK.
|Types of personal data used
|HTML-PDF conversion (to provide downloadable/printable personalised reports)

|Support request data
If you contact our support team for help with using the Diagnostic, they will receive your support request data and, depending on the nature of your support request, might access data within your Diagnostic account with your permission to help resolve problems, for example using a remote connection to your device.
Your employer will not have access to your personalised report or any of the information stored within your Diagnostic user account, and we will not share any of this information with your employer.
However, we will derive anonymous statistical data from technical user data, job role data, diagnostics data, 360° reviewer data and support request data for the purposes of reporting to your employer in respect of its employees’ engagement, progress and attainment (as a cohort rather than as individuals). The data we use for this purpose is anonymised so that it is no longer possible to identify the individuals to whom it relates. Analysis data shared with your employer will always meet a minimum group size of participants in order to retain anonymity. It will not be possible to combine multiple groups to isolate an individual participant.
Our use of the service providers referred to above involves transfers outside the UK, as some are based outside the UK and their service infrastructure involves processing of data by them and their subcontractors in various countries outside the UK. We ensure that any transfers we make to our service providers comply with the conditions for transfers stipulated by data protection law, including making transfers subject to Standard Contractual Clauses or Adequacy Decisions. If you would like to know what that means in respect of your personal data collected via the Diagnostic, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will retain the data we obtain via the Diagnostic only for so long as is necessary for the purposes described in this notice. The applicable retention periods are set out in our Data Retention Policy. If you would like to know what that means in respect of your personal data collected via the Diagnostic, please contact us by emailing email@example.com.
You have various rights under data protection law in respect of our processing of your personal data. Please see our website privacy notice for detail about these rights and how to exercise them. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any requests, questions or concerns relating our use of your personal data.
Any changes we make to this privacy notice in the future will be posted on the Diagnostic and, where appropriate, notified to you by e-mail or other suitable method.
Questions, comments and requests regarding this privacy notice are welcomed and should be addressed to email@example.com.
