When accessing the https://www.cultureexploit.com website, Xientia AS will learn certainin formation about you during your visit.
2. END-USER’S, XIENTIA, XIENTIA’S PARTNERS AND THIRD PARTIES
End-Users (“End-Users”) are typically using the Platform to collect, and process data through the Platform. An End-User is for example a company inviting you to complete an assessment as part of their hiring process.
Partners of XIENTIA are for example, but not limited to XIENTIA’s distribution channel, business and/or alliance partners etc.
Third parties (“Third Parties”) are any other entity than End-Users.
4. YOUR DATA
Data (“Data”) means specific information regarding the personal or material circumstances related to you as a specific and/or identifiable individual. This includes information like (but not limited to) your real name, address, email address, phone number, date of birth, photo(s), video(s), assessment data, IP address, username and password, background information such as educational attainment, interests, any content you submit using a Platform service, payment information etc., and any other data you communicate, register, or deliver to the Platform.
When you enter the Platform, an account (“Account”) is created for you, or you may be required to create an Account. XIENTIA strives to ensure that Data collected through the Platform is relevant, up-to-date and not excessive in relation to the intended purposes. Any information not being directly relatable to your real identity is not considered to be Data.
XIENTIA may also collect Data automatically using its website technologies, its other websites or systems, or receive Data form for example analytics and search information providers, payment services etc., and from XIENTIA Partners and Third Parties. XIENTIA may use this to refine and/or combine Data.
You have the right to have your Account and the Data connected to it, archived or anonymised:
If your Account is anonymised, your Data is anonymised and can no longer be connected to you or restored to your Account, and neither can your Account be restored.
You are entitled to inspect your personal Data (not including assessment data etc.), and if incorrect to correct such personal Data stored by the Platform. If you are not able to inspect and correct incorrect personal Data online, you may direct your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. HANDLING YOUR DATA
The Data voluntarily communicated, registered, delivered or entered to the Platform, and other Data and information collected, is stored by the Platform.
Your Data may not be stored and/or processed in your own country, or it may be transferred and subsequently stored and/or processed outside your own country. The primary reasons for this is that XIENTIA’s IT infrastructure provider may have servers in many different countries, and because servicing for example global End-Users may require your Data to be transferred, stored, and/or processed in other countries than your own. Please contact email@example.com if you want to know where your Data is physically stored and/or processed.
If your Data is archived, anonymised or deleted, such requests are in principle executed instantly in our database(s). However, your original Data may still exist on one or more backup systems, and depending on the backup cycle(s), it may take some time before all copies of your original Data are processed.
If your Data has not been used or accessed for a given period (typically 6 to 24 months), XIENTIA has the right to archive, anonymise or delete your Account, and your Data without notification. If you want to archive or anonymise your Account and your Data, please direct your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
6. USING YOUR DATA
Your Data is primarily used By the End-User who invited you to provide Data. Data is typically presented to End-User in reports after being processed by the Platform. End-User may export Data from the Platform and process it (further) outside the Platform. In that case, it is End-User’s responsibility to protect your Data.
Your Data is also used by XIENTIA for statistic and/or scientific purposes, and in the effort to keep the Platform safe and secure.
Your contact information, which is part of your Data, may be used by XIENTIA and XIENTIA Partners according to article 8.
XIENTIA and its distribution channel may have direct or indirect access to all or some of your Data in its original and/or processed format when servicing and supporting End-Users.
Finally, if XIENTIA is substantially sold or otherwise handed over to any other entity, your Data may be transferred to that entity.
7. DATA PROTECTION AND SECURITY
The System complies with present EU data protection laws and regulations, and your Data is stored and processed in accordance with the legal regulations applicable within the European Union. In general, your Data is also protected by separation of personal Data and other Data, and partial database encryption.
The online transmission of your Data is performed through secured connections to protect your Data from manipulation and/or unauthorised access. Data protection and security is paramount to XIENTIA, and we take reasonable measures to prevent unauthorised access or manipulation of your Data.

Your Data, both in its original and in any processed form, is handled confidentially by XIENTIA. Furthermore, we require other entities having access to your Data to handle it, no matter the format, confidentially.
Some countries require a local Data Protection Officer, and you can request to be contacted by a Data Protection Officer by sending a request to email@example.com
Per default, XIENTIA and/or XIENTIA Partners may contact you by email. However, you can decline such contact by notifying firstname.lastname@example.org, or by opting out online were and when it is possible. If you continue to receive information from a XIENTIA Partner after you declined it, it is likely that the XIENTIA Partner did not register your change. In this case you must opt-out directly at the XIENTIA Partner.
XIENTIA may for example contact you
To notify you about changes or updates, and to respond to your requests, inquiries etc.
For internal operations like troubleshooting, data analytics, testing, statistics, surveys etc.
For business and research purposes, and to enhance/develop the Platform, products and services.
