Like most website operators, Qualified collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use its website. From time to time, Qualified may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Qualified also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Qualified only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to our websites choose to interact with Qualified in ways that require Qualified to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Qualified gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at Qualified.io to provide an email address, and other potential information to necessary for processing payments, completing a Developer Assessment, and delivering the Assessment Link and Assessment Report. In each case, Qualified collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Qualified. Qualified also may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Qualified does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
