Privacy Policy

About Your Privacy

We are committed to ensuring that the information you provide to us via the Internet is secure. The following section defines our policy regarding maintaining your privacy, and the security safeguards we have implemented to keep your information secure and confidential.

Tracking Site Usage

We do not obtain or utilize user-specific information and do not capture information unless you provide it to us either directly or by e-mail.

We do track general site information about how many total users access the site and the information functions within it. We use this information to improve and manage the site.

Surveys and Quizzes

Ball Foundation respects your privacy. As part of Ball Foundation ‘s ongoing research program, clients and website visitors complete surveys and quizzes via email, telephone, and the internet. This information is mainly used to improve Ball Foundation’s services. However, as active members of the vocational psychology field, Ball Foundation also reports the results of research findings to outside parties in the form of press releases, research reports, and papers presented at professional conferences. Ball Foundation only shares information with an outside party in aggregate (or group) form; that is, information that combines responses from many individuals, so as to not run the risk of identifying any specific individual in the group. In adhering to the highest standards, we require parental consent to use survey data from individuals under the age of 18.

Computer Viruses

There is always the possibility of unknowingly acquiring computer viruses on the Internet. We suggest that you make every effort to be aware of this possibility and to scan downloaded materials. We are not responsible or liable for any damage caused by these viruses.

Regular Internet e-mail is not secure and should not be used to send confidential information.

Our Ball Foundation Assessments are hosted on a fully secured site. Every effort has been made to ensure that your personal information remains confidential. Greater detail is provided once you enter the password protected area.

All subscription information is used to better serve our subscribers and none will be shared with a third party.
