HR Avatar Updates Privacy Policy   May 25, 2018, 7:55:28 PM EDT

Aldie, VA (May 25, 2018) - HR Avatar Pre-Employment Tests, a leading provider of online, simulation-based employment tests, is updating our privacy policy

HR Avatar is committed to helping English make the best hiring decisions. And we take your personal data and the data from your applicants seriously.

As part of our growth and supporting the changes that will come into effect with the EU data protection law, we are updating our privacy policy.

Here’s a summary of the changes:

Personal Identifying Information Removal.

Test results that are older than one year old in accounts based in the EU will undergo pseudonymization.Names, emails, photos and any other personal identifying information from test results will be removed.

Starting July 1, test results in accounts that have been inactive for more than one year will undergo pseudonymization. If you would like the process to occur sooner, please let us know. And if you are in the US and would like this process to _NOT_ occur, please let us know! We will work with you to make sure you have what you need.

Updated Test Taker Disclosure and Release Form.

We have always been very clear with test takers around why we collect information. And we maintain our commitment to transparency to you and to your applicants. The disclosure and release form now includes a note about the pseudonymization process above as well, so test takers know we will not store their information for longer than necessary.

More Privacy Features.

In addition to making changes for the GDPR regulations, we are also undergoing the process to self-certify for the U.S.–EU Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce. You can read about these steps on our Privacy Policy.

Here’s what didn’t change:

Our commitment to transparency.

Our goal has always been to be easy-to-use, and part of that goal is ensuring that you know what you are getting every time you use our services. We do not use your data for anything other than what is shared on the page. We do not sell your data to third parties.

Your ability to control your account information and data.

Account owners can access their account information at any time by logging in and clicking on My Info. The information we have is the information you have provided us. This information can be updated at any time, and if you need to cancel your account, you can do that. Just send us a quick note at

Your ability to control what messages you receive.

We hope you don’t mind our helper emails. But if you ever want to unsubscribe to a distribution list, click on the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email to remove your email address. We hope these updates will continue to make you feel more comfortable and productive working with us. If you have any questions in the meantime, please let us know.
