Privacy and Security
We believe that the personal information you provide to us must be both kept private and safe, and will always be used in a responsible fashion. We consistently put our best efforts towards achieving these objectives.
Types and Reasons for Data Collection
When you register as a user of the Creative Learning Website some personal information is required to process your orders, generate your personal profiles, send you newsletters and alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information and other new services from CLS.
When you use the Personal Assessment Software, information regarding your working, training, learning or teaching style is collected. If you provide us with your consent, this information may be used for anonymous, statistical research purposes by CLS and our academic partners (e.g. educators, universities, teacher training establishments etc.), as well as for the further development and refinement of our test instruments.
No personal information collected will be used for a reason not listed above without your expressed permission. Further, if you tell us that you do not wish to have personal information used as a basis for contacting you, we will respect your wishes, and to the best of our abilities, remove or block access to that information. Additionally, you may cancel your registration at any time by emailing us your instructions.

These special services may include software downloads, special discount offers, beta-testing participation, and more. This information is used exclusively by CLS for direct contact to inform you of new services and programmes, and in an aggregate form to improve the value of this web site.
Web Site Traffic and Analysis Instrument Results

Collection of Information using 'Cookies'
The Creative Learning Website uses several cookies to provide you easier and more direct access to information and services. The use of these cookies is required for full access to our services. All information stored in these cookies has been encrypted. Additionally, sensitive information, such as telephone numbers, passwords, and credit card numbers are never stored in cookies.
Security is one of our highest priorities. The CLS Website uses technology called SSL - Secure Sockets Layer. This means in the credit card purchasing section, our servers and your PC encrypt (scramble) everything that you enter into your computer, such as credit card details, billing and delivery address. Because it is encrypted, other computers are unable to make sense of it, therefore keeping this information safe and private.
There are visual clues on screen that tell you when you have entered a secure environment. On your browser window lower status bar, the key or padlock icon, which is normally open or absent, appears as a solid icon.
