SIXTH.- About the service
A fee is charged for obtaining the test results as well as a certificate with the score. This fee allows us to operate our website, maintain it and improve it. This fee is a very small fee taking into account that 30 minutes of a psychologist for example in the U.S. can be 100$.
If you need to recover your score or need again your certificate, you can simply contact with us and request it. Take into account that we only save your data for one year, after which it will be erased forever with the goal of preserving privacy.
The calculations of this test, as they use specific questions only used in this test, may lead to different results if compared to other tests from other websites or psychological tests administered. In any case, the score follows a normal distribution which is computed from all users that have done the test, therefore the test can be considered highly reliable as more than enough users underpin such distribution.
