1.3.5 Tests

The extensive battery of psychological tests is Queendom's signature feature. Information gathered from test-takers allows us to conduct scientific studies, validate our assessments and fine-tune them based on the results and conclusions drawn from the statistical analyses.

All test questions must be answered before the test can be scored. At some point during the test administration, you may receive a Validation study form. This is a set of demographic and psychographic questions that are not used to score the test; rather, this information serves as a benchmark of a specific characteristic (also called a criterion measure). We then statistically analyze the test and the validation information to see how well the test scores predict the criterion

What information is collected:
a)
 All answers entered into the online questionnaire form (answers to all questions administered to you are required to score the test).
b) All information entered into the Validation study form (all optional).
c) If you are logged into your account, your username/email address is automatically recorded. If you are not logged in, you are considered to be a "guest".

Your control: You can change or remove information from your account at any time. To do so, log into your account, click on "My info" in the left navigation menu and modify your information.
Access: Authorized database administrators have access to all data stored in our databases. Authorized customer service representatives access your data if a problem with your account is reported. Our statisticians and psychologists have access to the data sets. All data are treated anonymously.

1.3.6  Polls, surveys, ad contests

Polls and surveys continuously run on Queendom. All data is collected anonymously and analyzed on an aggregate basis.

1.3.6.1  Polls

Session ID (cookies) is used to identify whether you already answered a specific poll to prevent duplication of data. If you already answered a poll, you can view the poll results but you cannot vote again.

1.3.6.2  Surveys

Queendom surveys are, in essence, scientific psychological studies conducted online. While the questions in these surveys are very personal, no personally identifiable data (PII) is collected in these studies. We do not ask for e-mail addresses or names of our participants.

All fields in the surveys are optional. As with any research project, the integrity of our data is paramount. From statistical perspective, it is desirable to have as complete data as possible.

1.3.7 Contests

From time to time, we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and email address), and demographic information (such as city, state, province, or country).

We use the contact information to notify contest winners and award prizes. The demographic information is used to analyze traffic and user preferences. The demographics are analyzed anonymously and results are reported on an aggregate basis only.
