QuadRed - Strategic Business Improvement

QuadRed is committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring you have a positive experience on our website and with our products. This policy outlines our personal information handling practices for both online and offline data. If you give us personal information, we will treat it according to this policy.

We encourage you to read this privacy policy to ensure you understand QuadRed's privacy practices.

This policy covers the QuadRed Corporate website and is applicable worldwide.

Collection of your personal information

When QuadRed collects any personal information on our corporate website or through our online products, we will express our need for the personal data at the point of collection. Some of the reasons why we collect your personal information include:

  • Analysis of assessment data
  • collaboration efforts
  • registration to membership programs or newsletter subscriptions
  • provide registered users a more personalized and meaningful experience on the QuadRed website.

Uses of your personal information:

We will only use your personal information in the way we specified when it was collected. We will not subsequently change the way your personal information is used without your consent. Some of the ways we may use your personal information include:

  • To provide the ability to create personal profile areas and view protected content.
  • To provide the ability to contact you, and provide you with shipping and billing information.
  • To provide customer feedback and support.
  • To record your assessment results and be able to recall them for comparison purposes in any subsequent assessments you may request or participate in.
  • To provide contests, sweepstakes or other marketing promotional activities on the QuadRed.com or affiliate websites.
  • To conduct questionnaires and surveys in order to provide better products and services to our customers and end users. Your completion of any questionnaires is voluntary.
  • To support recruitment inquiries.
  • To understand more about you, so we can personalize newsletters and websites to your preferences. For example, allow you the opportunity to request specific information on products and services that may be of interest.
  • To meet contract obligations.

Accessing and updating your personal information

We need your help in keeping the personal information you have shared with us accurate and up to date. Please notify us of any changes to your personal information. Most of our sites allow you to make these updates yourself online via a particular program's member pages or the QuadRed Forum Profile


Each email newsletter includes instructions on how you can unsubscribe from that particular mailing.

You may also unsubscribe from QuadRed's various newsletters by sending a letter, including your name, email address and the title of the marketing material you wish to unsubscribe from to:

Non-personal information collection

In some instances, QuadRed may collect non-personal (aggregate or demographic) data through our assessment products. This information is used to the most suitable comparison and benchmark data for your assessment results. In addition, your results may be aggregated in our research database but only in a non-identifying manner.

Sharing your personal information

We do not sell or rent your personal information to third-parties for marketing purposes unless you have granted us permission to do so.
We may share your personal information within QuadRed or any of our worldwide subsidiaries for purposes of data processing or storage.
We may also share your personal information with authorized third-party agents or contractors in order to provide a requested service or transaction. For example, if we need to ship something to you, we must share your name and address with a shipping company. We only provide third-party agents with the minimum amount of personal information necessary to complete the requested service or transaction.

We may respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process by disclosing your personal information and other related information, if necessary. We also may choose to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

We may collect and possibly share personal information and any other additional information available to us in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of QuadRed's terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.
We will ask you for your opt-in consent to share your personal information with a third party for any other reason.


We may customize websites or newsletters for certain users based on the information they previously provided or that was collected through QuadRed.com websites in order to enhance the overall web experience.

Security of your personal information

QuadRed is committed to protecting the personal information you share with us. We utilize a combination of security technologies, procedures, and organizational measures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.

When we transfer sensitive personal data (for example, credit card information) over the Internet, we protect it using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology.

While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit.

We recommend you to take every precaution in protecting your personal information when you are on the Internet. For example, change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers when creating passwords, and make sure you use a secure browser.


QuadRed websites may utilize cookies, although you can still access most of them even if you choose to disable cookies in your browser. Some websites will not allow you to complete certain activities if cookies are disabled. For example, our e-commerce site uses session cookies and persistent cookies to process transactions. If you do not accept cookies, the associated shopping basket will not work and you will not be able to place an order.

We use multiple third parties to monitor web traffic, statistics, advertisement 'click-through', and other activities on QuadRed's sites. Where authorized by QuadRed, such third parties may use cookies, QuadRed's web log files, web beacons, and other monitoring technologies to compile anonymous aggregate statistics on QuadRed's website visitors.
We also include web beacons in HTML-formatted e-mail newsletters in order to count how many newsletters (or particular articles, links, etc.) are being accessed.

Current versions of web browsers offer enhanced user controls regarding the placement and duration of both first and third party cookies. Search for "cookies" under your web browser's Help menu for more information on cookie management features available to you.

Data retention

QuadRed will not retain your personal information longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations.

Linked websites

Our websites may provide links to other third-party websites which are outside our control and not covered by this policy. We encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these (and all) sites.


QuadRed newsgroups and forums are public. Please consider this before posting material to them.

Children's Privacy

QuadRed does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected personal information on a child under the age of 13, we will delete that data from our systems. QuadRed encourages parents and guardians to go online with their children. Here are a few tips to help make a child's online experience safer:

  • Teach children never to give personal information (such as name, address, phone number, school, etc.) unless supervised by a parent or responsible adult.
  • Know the sites your children are visiting and which sites are appropriate.
  • Look for website privacy policies. Know how your child's information is treated.

Please visit the FTC's website(1) for more tips on protecting children's privacy online.

Transfer of Personal Information

We may transfer your personal information to Virtual CEO, Inc. (our parent company) in the US, to any QuadRed subsidiary worldwide or to third parties acting on our behalf for the purposes of processing or storage.
