The collected data is meant to support the assessment of an employee’s ability to do well at work as well as to support development at work. Avoid recording other data when taking part in the assessment. MPS monitors the functionality of their assessment methods and the success of their personal assessments by conducting follow-up research.

7. Regular disclosure of data

The MPS Assessment Database is an online database. The personal data form completed for a specific personal assessment assignment as well as the summary reports prepared on the basis of the survey responses are also partially disclosed to the personal assessment client (employer) as well as the participant themselves. You have the right to receive feedback when you participate in a personal assessment: you can agree on how the feedback will be given with the consultant during the interview.

The controller discloses data to third-party subcontractors. The data subject consents to this when providing the data. The data is not disclosed outside the European Union or the European Economic Area.

The data is not disclosed to outsiders or used for other assignments without the consent of the data subject unless the disclosure of data is based on statutory obligations or government regulations.

8. Principles of file protection

Personal data is kept confidential. Usernames and passwords for the Assessment Database are only given to employees taking part in the recruitment and selection processes of MPS Enterprises Ltd. Each user has their own username and password for the system.

Technical questions about the technical protection and data security of the data stored in the data file should be directed to the service provider (Hofstede Insights).
