Data Protection for KAI Respondents

KAI has been in use now for nearly 50 years. It originally came from a classroom-based paper form system, and it was important then that details of the respondents were collected, in order to ensure that the KAI Practitioner knew which form belonged to which respondent.

Over the years, KAI transformed into a powerful online tool, and we have continued to collect personal information, which KAI Practitioners could then use to do analysis on groups of clients.

However, we fully recognise that in the modern world, personal data has become very valuable. Although we have absolutely no intention of monetising our clients’ data, we recognise that just keeping the data makes us a target for hackers and criminals.

Therefore, we have taken the decision that KAI Online will in the future be completely anonymised. We will no longer collect any information about you at all, and even your email address (which is used, with your agreement, to send scores and feedback to you), will be automatically deleted from our database after 30 days.

You will be able to take KAI online without providing your email address at all, if you prefer. In this case, you will have to make an alternative arrangement with your KAI Practitioner on how you wish to have your results returned to you.

Your KAI Practitioner will now liaise with you about what details you are prepared to give him or her, and they will provide their own Data Protection Policy, detailing how they will protect and use any data that you agree to give them.

The new anonymised system will be implemented in Summer 2018. In the meantime, although KAI Online asks for various personal details, you can just insert ‘xyz’ in any field. Please bear in mind that if you do not supply your email address, it may take longer for your KAI Practitioner to return your scores and feedback to you.

Once the new system has been introduced, we will return all data which includes personal details, to KAI Practitioners. This data will then be removed from our database permanently.

We take protection of your data very seriously, and we intend to provide a workable system, which does not hold any personal details about you.

If you have any questions about how your personal details will be handled or stored, please refer them to your KAI Practitioner.
