On 30 April 2018, we updated the Privacy Statement for Self Awareness.
This update is part of our continued commitment to transparency, using simple-to-understand language, and ensuring you always have control over your data. We’ve also included provisions that clarify our efforts to comply with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation that goes into effect on 25 May 2018.
Nothing about your Self Awareness experience changes with this update—we just wanted you to clearly understand that we always put your privacy first.
We invite you to take a look at our Privacy Statement now.

We will NOT pass on your information to any third parties to use for advertising or marketing purposes.
Equally, we will not use your information for any promotional purposes without your explicit permission to do so.
Self Awareness collects basic information from you in order to register your account, including the Self Awareness Licensed Centre you are associated with, your name, gender, date of birth, email address, language,, a username, password and answer to a security question.
Once you have registered and completed the Footprint questionnaire we will also hold your answers to the questionnaire and, if you chose to add it, your CV.
