Pass your Test Principles
We built Pass your Test to make it easy to share information with your learner drivers and driving instructors. We understand you may not want everyone in the world to have the information you share on Pass your Test; that is why we give you control of your information. Our default privacy settings limit the information displayed in your Profile to your networks and other reasonable community limitations that we tell you about.
Pass your Test follows two core principles:
1. You should have control over your personal information.
Pass your Test helps you share information with your friends and people around you. You choose what information you put in your Profile, including contact and personal information, pictures, interests and groups you join. And you control the users with whom you share that information through the privacy settings on the Privacy page.
2. You should have access to the information others want to share.
There is an increasing amount of information available out there, and you may want to know what relates to you, your friends and people around you. We want to help you easily get that information.
Sharing information should be easy. We want to provide you with the privacy tools necessary to control how and with whom you share that information.
The information we collect
When you visit Pass your Test you provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us and Website use information collected by us as you interact with our Website.
When you register with Pass your Test, you provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, your email address, your telephone number, your address, your gender, and any other personal or preference information that you provide to us.
When you enter Pass your Test, we collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all Pass your Test visitors. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using 'cookies'. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to log in when you come back to Pass your Test. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable this convenience feature.
When you use Pass your Test, you may set up your personal Profile, form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, form groups, set up events, add applications and transmit information through various channels. We collect this information so that we can provide you the service and offer personalised features. In most cases, we retain it so that, for instance, you can return to view prior messages you have sent or easily see your friend list. When you update information, we usually keep a back-up copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information.
You post User Content on the Site at your own risk. Although we allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your pages, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other Users with whom you may choose to share your pages and information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that User Content you post on the Site will not be viewed by unauthorised persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other Users have copied or stored your User Content.
Any improper collection or misuse of information provided on Pass your Test is a violation of the Pass your Test Terms of Service and should be reported.
If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for information needed to send the invitation, such as your friend's email address. We will send your friend an email or instant message in your name inviting him or her to visit the site, and may send up to two reminders to them. Pass your Test stores this information to send invitations and reminders, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, to allow you to see invitations you have sent and to track the success of our referral program.
Pass your Test may also collect information about you from other sources, such as newspapers, blogs, instant messaging services and other users of the Pass your Test service through the operation of the service (e.g. photo’s) in order to provide you with more useful information and a more personalised experience.
By using Pass your Test, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United Kingdom.
Children aged under 13
Pass your Test does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for Pass your Test as you are too young to pass your test anyway or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number or email address. No one under the age of 13 may provide any personal information to or on Pass your Test. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under the age of 13, please contact us through our contact page.
Children between the ages of 13 and 18
We recommend that minors 13 years of age or older ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.
Use of information obtained by Pass your Test
When you register with Pass your Test, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your Profile information, as well as your name, email address and photo, are displayed to people in the networks specified in your privacy settings to enable you to connect with driving instructors on Pass your Test. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by Pass your Test that we think you may find valuable.
Profile information is used by Pass your Test primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service and to be presented to others permitted to view that information by your privacy settings.
The Profile information that you submit to Pass your Test will be available to users of Pass your Test who belong to at least one of the networks you allow to access the information through your privacy. Learner drivers are able to see driving instructor profiles but driving instructors can NOT see learner driver profiles. Your name, network names and Profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the Pass your Test network and those limited pieces of information may be made available to third-party search engines. This is primarily so your friends can find you and send a friend request.
Pass your Test may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. For instance, if a friend sends you a new message, you may receive an email alerting you to that fact.
Generally, you may opt out of such emails through the notifications page; though Pass your Test reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
Sharing your information with third parties
Pass your Test is about sharing information with others to make you a safer and better driver — while providing you with privacy settings that restrict other users from accessing your information. We allow you to choose the information you provide to friends and networks through Pass your Test. Our network architecture and your privacy settings allow you to make informed choices about who has access to your information. We do not provide contact information to third-party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or 3) permitted by you. For example:
When you use Pass your Test, certain information you post or share with third parties (e.g. a friend or someone in your network), such as personal information, comments, messages, photos, videos, classified listings or other information, may be shared with other users in accordance with the privacy settings you select. All such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information in your Profile or when posting comments, messages, photos, videos, classified listings or other items, this information may become publicly available.

Changing or removing information
Access and control over most personal information on Pass your Test is readily available through the Profile editing tools. Pass your Test users may modify or delete any of their Profile information at any time by logging into their account. Information will be updated immediately. Individuals who wish to deactivate their Pass your Test account may do so on the Account page in the networking section. Removed information may persist in back-up copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be generally available to members of Pass your Test.
Where you make use of the communication features of the service to share information with other individuals on Pass your Test, however, (e.g. sending a personal message to another user user) you generally cannot remove such communications.
Pass your Test takes appropriate precautions to protect our users' information. Your account information is located on a secure server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number or your password), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Because email and instant messaging are not recognised as secure communications, we request that you do not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services. If you have any questions about the security of Pass your Test Website, please contact us through the contact page
