Please read – how our Products (which include our Website) are intended to be used.
We make no claims or representations in relation to the emotional, health or commercial benefits of using our Products and the information provided on the Website is no substitute for professional medical or psychiatric advice where applicable. If you are concerned about health or mental well-being issues you are advised to consult your doctor. In particular:
- Our Products are provided for information and entertainment purposes only and not for medical or psychological assessment purposes, and for your own personal use (and not e.g. to screen or assess others) and for no other purpose.
- Our Products do not provide medical advice.
- Our Products should not be regarded as or relied upon as being a comprehensive or accurate opinion or assessment concerning your psychological well-being and personality. We just do not know enough about you to guarantee that. Where you have any concerns arising out of your use of our Products you should seek appropriate professional advice.
- Any decisions that you make once you have used or read the content of our Products are for you alone and we will not be liable for the consequences of any such decisions.
- Our Products are for personal use only and are not intended for use in any business, educational, employment or recruitment context.
- Whilst we provide texts of our Products in languages other than in English the accuracy of such translations is not guaranteed (for example, many translations are contributed by volunteers) and use is at your own risk.
You must be over the age of 13 years (or above the relevant age of consent in your country) to use the Website and purchase our Products.
The official text is the English version of the Website. Any discrepancies or differences created in the translation to other languages are not binding and have no legal effect for any purpose. If any questions arise related to the accuracy of the information contained in the non-English versions of the Website, please refer to the English version of the Website which is the official version.
Please note that these Terms and Conditions of Use and Purchase may be amended from time to time to update them to reflect changes in the law or our commercial and business practices. Notification of any changes will be made by posting new terms onto the Website. In continuing to use the Website you confirm that you accept the then current terms and conditions in full at the time you use the Website.
If you object to any change you have the right to cancel your use of the Website and the ongoing provision of Products from us within 30 days of the change by contacting us at email@example.com. We will refund any sums paid in advance or which relate to any cancelled Products. However, you will not be entitled to a refund in relation to Products you have already downloaded or otherwise accessed.
You can access many areas of the Website without registering or subscribing but if you wish to view certain content or access certain services or other Products, you may be required to register with the Website.
If you register with the Website you may be required to create a password. In order to prevent fraud, you must keep this password confidential and must not disclose it or share it with anyone. If you know or suspect that someone else knows your password you should notify us by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
If we have reason to believe that there is likely to be a breach of security or misuse of the Website through your account or the use of your password, we may require you to change your password or we may suspend your account. Until you have changed your password or we have reactivated your account you may not be able to access certain parts of the Website.
You may not have more than one registration with the Website. We reserve the right at our discretion to delete or cancel the registration of any person who in our opinion possesses more than one profile at any time.
We reserve the right to suspend or cancel any registration at any time where it is reasonable for us to do so, including where you are not in compliance with these Terms and Conditions of Use and Purchase.
(3) Personality Test
We also offer premium personality profiles and guides (“Premium Profiles”), as well as access to our online tools and assessments (“Specialized Tests”) which you can purchase in accordance with clause 4.
(4) Purchase of Digital Content and Services
We offer digital content and subscription services for purchase on the Website. They are provided as described there. We reserve the right to change the descriptions and Products offered from time to time.
Our Products are licensed, not sold, to you. They remain our property. The intellectual property rights (including copyright) in the Products remain with us and/or our authors/licensors as applicable. Our products may include digital rights management information and technology, which you agree not to tamper with or remove, and which is intended to deter or prevent misuse of our intellectual property.
Our e-books are in the PDF format and require an up-to-date PDF reader to be used for their intended purpose.
At the time you place any order for which payment is required you must give authority for payment. We may take payment from you at any time between you placing the order and us providing the services or you requesting access to the digital content.
Your order is an offer to purchase from us. There will be no contract of any kind between you and us unless and until we actually take payment from you, at which point we will email you with confirmation of the contract and acceptance of your order. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply the services or digital content to you without giving any reason. If we take payment and subsequently fail to provide the services or make the digital content available to you for any reason we will refund you in full.
The prices payable for the items that your order are clearly set out on the Website. If, by mistake, we have underpriced an item, we will not be liable to supply that item to you at the stated price provided that we notify you before we dispatch or make available the item concerned.
Payments are made through the Website electronically. When you pay by credit or debit card you consent to us carrying out certain checks which include obtaining authorization from your card issuer to ensure you have adequate funds and for security reasons. This may involve validating your name, address and other personal information with your bank or credit reference agencies if necessary.
For our subscription-based services, payments are due for any month or year on the same or closest date to the day you made your first payment.
We may change our fees at any time by posting new fees on our Website. If you object to the fee increase you have the right to cancel your use of the Website and the ongoing provision of Products from us within 30 days of the change by contacting us at email@example.com. We will refund any sums paid in advance or which relate to any cancelled Products. You will not be entitled to a refund in relation to Products you have already downloaded or otherwise accessed.
All prices shown are in U.S. dollars ($USD), unless specified otherwise, and include VAT, where applicable.
Where after purchasing or otherwise downloading our Products you ask us to supply a replacement then unless you have a statutory right for us to replace the Product any replacement is at our discretion. In particular please note that our e-books are updated from time to time and replaced so in any event a replacement may not be available.
The Teams Tool
If you use our Teams tool as a team member, please note our contract to provide services is between us and your Team and we have no obligation to provide services to you nor are we responsible for or owe you a duty of care in relation to your use of said services – this is the responsibility of your Team, not us.
The Teams tool is provided for information purposes only to help understand and improve team culture, motivation, communication style and similar aspects. It is not provided for medical, employment, or psychological assessment purposes (e.g. to recruit, screen, manage or assess others in an employment context). Also:
- Use of this tool assumes that those using or participating are willing to do so and that the team leader conducts any workshop and uses any results in a non-discriminatory, lawful and sensitive manner.
- This tool is only useful if those participating are honest about their personality traits, behaviors and habits. If that is not the case (for example, they feel they need to respond in a particular way in order for that to be acceptable to their manager or organization), then any output will be flawed. In any event we have no liability for the output of the Teams tool or how your Team may use it, or for any consequences of any decisions made or actions taken based on such use. Again, that is solely the responsibility of your organization and/or the team leader.
If you have any concerns or complaints you can contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. However, we are not responsible for how your team uses the Teams tool and questions about your team’s use of the tool should be directed to your team leader.
(5) Refunds and Cancellation Policy
If you are not happy with any digital content (including any e-books) that you have purchased from the Website, we will offer you a refund within 30 days of purchase, subject to the provisions below.
For our subscription-based services, we will only be able to refund the last payment linked to your subscription. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, or refunds for months unused with an open account.
By requesting a refund, you certify that you have deleted all copies of digital content downloaded from or otherwise accessed on the Website, or sent to you by other means.
Gift codes and custom orders are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.
In order to obtain a refund, you must warrant to us that you have (i) not shared any copies of the relevant Premium Profile(-s) or any other premium content with any other person and (ii) deleted or destroyed all copies of these materials that you have in your possession.
Our Refunds and Cancellation Policy can be found here.
We reserve the right to refuse a refund if:
- you placed an order after having requested a refund in the past;
- your payment is linked to chargeback or dispute attempts;
- you used the Premium Profile(-s) download link or accessed other purchased premium content after requesting a refund;
- we have strong reason to believe that you have shared your Premium Profile(-s), their download link(-s), or your access credentials with other people, e.g. if there have been access attempts from many different locations;
- you provide intentionally misleading information, e.g. reporting the payment as fraudulent despite having an active user account.
This does not affect your statutory cancellation rights under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. These rights can be found in our Refunds and Cancellation Policy.

The Website is provided on an ‘as is’ basis and we reserve the right to suspend the Website and our provision of any services at any time without notice.
Nothing in this Website or our Products should be construed as medical, psychological, recruitment, business, or any other advice. All materials and Products are for informational purposes only.

Our Products are not intended for and are not supplied for business use and you use our Products in any business, employment or recruitment context at your own risk. In particular, to the extent that you use our Products for business use we will not be liable to you in respect of any business losses, including (without limitation) loss of or damage to profits, income, revenue, use, production, anticipated savings, business, contracts, commercial opportunities or goodwill. We will not be liable for any commercial or human resources decisions made in connection with the use of our Products nor will we be liable for any liability in relation to employment disputes including but not limited to wrongful and unfair dismissal.

We will not be liable to you in respect of any emotional or mental distress or other harm in connection with using our Products except to the extent that such damage is caused by our negligence.
We will not be liable to you in respect of any loss or corruption of any data, database or software (but this does not affect your statutory rights).
We will not be liable to you in respect of any loss or damage which is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
Any decisions made or actions taken by you on the basis of information provided on or via the Website are at your sole discretion and risk. You should obtain professional advice where necessary.

Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
(19) Entire Agreement
(20) Delay in Enforcing this Contract
Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
(21) Law and Legal Proceedings
These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts. If you live outside the UK then we both agree to only take legal action against each other in the English courts (subject to any consumer protections that apply to you in your country and which these terms are prohibited from overriding). We may however protect our intellectual property rights (IPR) in any country.
