For Test Takers, the IP address through which they access the assessment is also collected.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. GDPR became enforceable on May 25, 2018.
IKM TeckChek is committed to global compliance, data protection, and privacy rights. As a result, we have taken several steps to be compliant with the GDPR as a company that operates as both a data controller and data processor. We have obtained certification under the joint EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework governing personal data transfer between the EU and U.S and adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles. A link to our GDPR Compliance document is located on the Home page of the IKM TeckChek website.
