SKILLSertifika Privacy & Policy


This Policy describes how companies in the SKILLSertifika group (together “SKILLSertifika” or “we”) collect and process data which identify individuals (“Personal Data”) who are customers and other users of our services (“Users”, “you”), and your associated rights. This Policy applies to SKILLSertifika products and services, including websites operated by SKILLSertifika. Your privacy is extremely important to us and we are committed to offering you a safe and hassle-free experience while visiting our websites and using our services.

1. How We Collect and Use Personal Data

We may collect and/or process your Personal Data only as stated in this Policy, for the purposes described below. We do not sell, share or transfer Personal Data to third parties, other than in the specific circumstances described in sections 1. (I) and 1. (II).

I. Certification Services

SKILLSertifika provides examination and certification services (“Certification Services”) as a Personnel Certification Body and Accredited Examination Institute. We may collect your Personal Data (including name, address, email address, phone number, date of birth, photo ID, video and audio recordings of examination sessions, and other information) to confirm your identity, deliver examinations, and ensure the validity of the certification process. Certain Personal Data is required to be collected under our procedures to provide you Certification Services and other Personal Data is collected to provide you with a good experience.

SKILLSertifika uses your Personal Data to provide Certification Services. We may also use your Personal Data for internal research and development or quality control purposes, and extracts from examination work in anonymised form may be reproduced in published exam preparation material. In the process of providing Certification Services, we create additional Personal Data, including examination results. Recordings of examination sessions are retained for one (1) year to provide a record of examination integrity.

Some of our Certification Services are offered in cooperation with other organisations that provide examination content (“Test Owners”) and/or are authorised and approved by SKILLSertifika for delivery of Certification Services (“Partners”). Some authorised Partners may also provide training services related to SKILLSertifika certifications. We may share your Personal Data with those Test Owners and Partners to the extent necessary to provide you Certification Services. We require Test Owners and Partners to comply with data protection law, but we are not directly responsible for their privacy practices. For information on those practices, please refer to the privacy policies of the Test Owner who provides your examination (our websites contain information about Test Owners) and Partner(s) whose services you use.

SKILLSertifika maintains a registry containing details of all certified persons. As a Personnel Certification Body and Accredited Examination Institute we operate publicly available “Verify your Certificate” This allows Users and third parties (e.g. employers) to confirm the authenticity and accuracy of any SKILLSertifika certificate by entering the serial number of the relevant certificate

II. Certifications Services – Support

SKILLSertifika delivers Certification Services in cooperation with an extensive network of Partners and other supporting organisations and individuals, including trainers; examination invigilators, interlocutors, supervisors, markers and assessors; Advanced Test Center Managers (ATCMs); auditors; and others. We collect Personal Data of individuals providing such supporting services (“Certification Personnel”) in order to ensure examination quality and security, including name, address, email address, phone number, date of birth, gender, employment information (e.g. SKILLSertifika role and experience), nationality, native language, photo ID, video and audio recordings of examination sessions, and other information. When recruiting new Certification Personnel, we collect this information in part via the Workable online recruitment platform. Records are retained for five (5) years from the end of our relationship with Certification Personnel (or an unsuccessful application of Certification Personnel).

We use Personal Data of Certification Personnel to provide Certification Services and to manage our relationships with Certification Personnel and the entities that employ them. We may disclose Personal Data of Certification Personnel to Test Owners whose examinations the Certification Personnel are involved in delivering.
