To comply with our legal and regulatory obligations


DDI also collects information from our users at several different points on the Sites. Our clients may use our Sites to collect candidate/applicant personal information, including names, addresses, and phone numbers, regarding a specific job posting or opening. There is no direct relationship between the client’s site(s) and the Sites, although at a client’s request, client sites may link to content on the Sites.

To use full functionality offered by the Sites, a user may be required to provide certain Personal Information. Personal Information may be shared and used by DDI and the client (for which the applicable site is hosted) as well as any other third-party vendors secured by the client to facilitate candidate or employee assessment or selection processes.

Summaries of de-identified or anonymized and aggregated data analyses may be presented to public audiences (e.g., scientific conferences). Review of DDI’s general approaches and accumulated results with professional audiences ensures that DDI's assessment methods remain up to date with best practices and professional, technical, and legal standards. While these summaries may be linked to general industries, the identities of client organizations and individuals remain completely confidential.

Summaries of aggregated data may also be used to create normative profiles (or “benchmarks”) for assessments. Normative profiles will not identify individuals or client organizations; however, the source data may link back to some or all the client organizations that are contained within the data set for the purpose of defining the characteristics of the norm sample (such as platform, industry, etc.)

Third parties approved by you
Auditors (e.g., in pursuit of ISO and other certifications)
Our insurers and brokers (e.g., cybersecurity insurance providers)
Our bank(s)
Law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies to comply with legal and regulatory obligations

We only allow our service providers to handle your personal information if we are satisfied, they take commercially reasonable and appropriate measures to protect your personal information. We also impose contractual obligations on service providers to confirm they can only use your personal information to provide services to us, to you, or to remain compliant with applicable laws and regulations of pertinent jurisdictions. We may also share personal information with external auditors in relation to ISO accreditation and the audit of our accounts.

We may also need to share some personal information with other parties, such as potential buyers of some or all our business during a re-structuring. We will typically anonymize or de-identify information, but this may not always be possible. Recipients of your personal information will be bound by confidentiality obligations.                         

Third Party Use of Personal Information:   Description:
Online Surveys

DDI's third-party online survey provider collects and stores user information in a secure and private manner on behalf of DDI to manage online surveys. This provider allows DDI to create surveys and questionnaires for distribution to potential survey respondents.


Our third-party online survey service provider maintains respondent information that may include information about DDI survey recipients, and other demographics and data useful to DDI. Our third-party online survey provider uses the information they collect to improve the service they provide to DDI. No information is shared with other third parties.

Newsletter Subscriptions

DDI’s third party newsletter publishing service provider for managing email newsletter subscriptions collects and stores visitor information in a secure and private manner on behalf of DDI. This information includes, but is not limited to, email address lists, articles, survey answers, letters, and usage statistics.


This information is owned by DDI and is not accessible to any other third parties. If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter, you may opt-out by following the optout instructions which are included in each communication.

Online Customer Service Chat

DDI's third party online customer service chat service provider collects and stores user information in a secure and private manner on behalf of DDI to manage online chat sessions.


If using this function, users will be asked to enter their names in whatever format or detail they prefer. During the chat, users engage in a live question and answer session with a DDI employee. Our third-party online customer service chat service provider maintains dialogue transcripts of these chats. After the chat, users may be asked to fill out an exit survey to obtain valuable feedback about DDI service. Filling out the exit survey is voluntary. The surveys may ask for contact information and for demographic information. Data is also collected through aggregated tracking information from cookies. Our third-party online customer service chat service provider uses the information they collect to improve the service they provide to DDI. No information is shared with other third parties.


Our third-party online customer service chat service provider uses cookies to link profile information (submitted by individuals to DDI) with the chat sessions managed by DDI's employees. By setting a cookie, users do not have to enter their profile information more than once, thereby saving time while on the chat session. Other statistical information about how our Sites are used is collected to assist the user with their customer service experience.

Tracking Technologies (limited to marketing purposes)

Our third-party business service provider uses cookies to link visits to our site with click-through from pay-per-click sponsored ads, placed by DDI on external search engine sites. They work by placing a cookie on a user's computer when he/she clicks on one of our pay-per-click sponsored ads. Then, if the user reaches one of DDI's designated conversion pages, the cookie is connected to our web page. When a match is made, the third-party business service provider records a successful conversion for DDI.


Some of our third-party business service providers (e.g., aggregate traffic analytic services such as Google Analytics, search engines and live help chat) use cookies on our site. We have no access to or control over these cookies. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our Site, or to display advertising based upon your web browsing activity, use local shared objects (“LSOs”) such as HTML 5 to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML 5 LSOs.


This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by the Sites and does not cover the use of cookies by any third parties.


Technologies such as cookies or similar technologies are used by DDI and our marketing partners on some of our Sites. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, storing username and password so that you do not have to enter it each time you visit the site, administering the Site, tracking users’ movements around the Site, and gathering demographic information about our user base. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies from these marketing partners in an individual and/or aggregated format.

AdvertisingWe engage a third-party ad network to either display advertising on our Sites or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third-party partner may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on this Site and other sites to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. If you do not want to have this information used for serving you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by clicking, here (or if located in the European Union click, here). Please note this does not opt you out of being served all ads; you will continue to receive generic ads.

DDI maintains a legitimate interest in processing your personal information for promotional purpose (see above “How and why we use your personal information”). This means we do not usually require your consent to send you promotional communications. However, where consent is needed, we will ask for this consent separately and clearly prior to the communication.


DDI will always treat your personal information with the utmost respect and never sell it to other organizations.

Data may also be accessed or used globally where authorized Client or DDI associates providing services to the Client are located. In addition, DDI is compliant with GDPR, PIPEDA, PIPL, and PDPA and the associated requirements to the extent we are processing data subject to those applicable jurisdictions.

Information may also be stored at our offices and those of our group companies, third party agencies, service providers, employees, contractors, affiliates, representatives, and agents as described above (see: “Who We Share Your Personal Information With” above). Some of these third parties may be based outside the European Economic Area and the United States.

We will not retain your personal information for longer than necessary for the purposes set out in this policy. Different retention periods apply for distinct types of personal information. DDI may however, retain and use your information in anonymized format for research purposes for indefinite periods of time.

When it is no longer necessary to retain your personal information subject to the agreed upon retention period, DDI will delete or anonymize said information. 

Transferring Your Personal Information Out of the EEA and U.S.:


To deliver services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to share your personal information outside the European Economic Area and United States, e.g.:

The following countries to which we may transfer personal information have been assessed by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for personal information:

Except for the countries list above, non-EEA countries do not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA. DDI will, however, ensure the transfer complies with data protection laws and exercise reasonable efforts to keep all personal information secure. Our standard practice is to use standard contractual clauses that have been approved by the European Commission. To obtain a copy of those clauses, see: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/standard-contractual-clauses-scc/standard-contractual-clauses-international-transfers_en.

We have implemented commercially reasonable security measures in place to avert personal information from being accidently lost or used or accessed in an unauthorized manner. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to access it.  We limit processing to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to process it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorized manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

DDI also has procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. DDI will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where legally required to do so.

DDI takes industry standard and reasonable precaution to protect our users' information during transmission and upon receipt. When users submit Personal Information via the Sites, their information is protected both online and offline. When you enter sensitive information on our Sites, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Additionally, all data is encrypted on disk via hardware encryption.

Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Those employees are required to respect the confidentiality of your Personal Information.
