However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the security of the information that you transmit via our online services.

We review the Personal Data we hold at regular intervals and delete Personal Data which is no longer necessary.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children who use our site and online surveys. As part of our educational services offered directly to children, our COMPASS Youth Survey is made available to children between the ages of 10-17 for the purpose of helping them recognize and understand the core human attributes they possess that guide them through school and life. The survey assesses a child’s core attributes/abilities (empathy, curiosity, resilience, self-awareness, resourcefulness, integrity, creativity, and sociability).
After completing a survey, a detailed PDF educational report is sent to the email address that the child provides. It outlines the child’s results using a bar graph of the abilities they use most and least often. No numerical measurements are attached to results. In the PDF report, we use clear, easily understandable language, including visualizations. We provide guidance on how children can engage the abilities they use most often to build on the abilities they use least often.
Children under the age of thirteen may only complete the COMPASS Youth Survey with permission of a parent, guardian, or other adult authorized by a parent or guardian. We provide information to parents about the survey to help them decide if it is appropriate for their child. For example, some of the questions in the survey may refer to sensitive data, like how a child feels about his/her interactions with peers, how honest her/she is in certain situations, or how quickly he/she bounces back from disappointments. We ask children under age thirteen to discuss the survey with parents/guardians and indicate parental consent before proceeding.
If a child is under the age of 10, we do not allow them to complete the COMPASS Youth Survey. Instead, we ask them to talk with their parents/guardians and invite a parent to take the COMPASS Survey for Parents of Children Ages 5-9. This provides parents an option of assessing, understanding, and learning to nurture core internal attributes in younger children.
We do not maintain permanent accounts or profiles for any user, including children. Within the survey, children are asked to provide their age, first name, and email address. This information gives us the ability to email a personalized report of results to them. For research purposes, we categorize children by age and compare anonymous group data in summary reports.
Email addresses of children are not used for marketing of any kind. We use these addresses for the sole purpose of communicating about the COMPASS Youth Survey.
At the completion of the COMPASS Youth Survey, we ask additional, optional questions for the purpose of research in the field of positive youth development. We take great care never to link a child’s name or email address, or any identifiable personal information to this data, which is always reported anonymously in larger, group reports for research. We use this data to compare how a child’s scores on surveys compare to others who are like them. For example, we may ask for your child’s geographic location, gender, type of school, and ethnic background. For any question that solicits this type of personal data, a child is given an option “Prefer not to answer.”
