As a data-centric organisation, we at Koios understand and respect the immense power of data. We acknowledge that the data we collect and use in our services profoundly impacts the conclusions our algorithms make and, consequently, the decisions our clients make. With this in mind, we have made a conscious effort to ensure that the data we utilise is representative of the diverse world we live in.
Our data collection process is meticulous and inclusive, with individuals from all walks of life contributing their voices to our datasets. We understand that voice is a deeply personal and unique aspect of identity, and thus our dataset includes representation from a diverse array of ethnicities, individuals of all genders, individuals with different abilities, both native and non-native English speakers, or regional dialects.
We firmly believe that the broad range of voices we have collected not only contributes to the richness and accuracy of our predictions but also validates and respects the individuality and uniqueness of all contributors. By ensuring diverse representation in our datasets, we are one step closer to making fair and unbiased personality predictions that respect and appreciate the unique tapestry of human identities.
At Koios, we firmly believe in the power of diversity, and our commitment to preventing bias extends beyond just data collection. We understand that, if left unchecked, biases can unintentionally make their way into our algorithms, affecting the fairness and accuracy of our predictions. To combat this, we've put in place robust bias mitigation practices.
Our algorithms are meticulously developed and validated across various groups to ensure equal performance, regardless of the individual's background. In every phase of our algorithm development, from initial design to testing, we consistently check for the potential introduction of bias, taking immediate corrective action if any bias is detected.
Moreover, we're not just focused on removing bias; we're also committed to promoting positive change. The insights we provide aren't intended to create barriers or give reasons to reject a candidate. Rather, we believe in the potential of every individual to excel in their role given the right environment, support, and encouragement. Our technology aims to provide actionable insights that help organisations unlock this potential in their teams, fostering a culture of inclusion, understanding, and mutual growth.
By ensuring the impartiality of our models and championing positive and actionable insights, we strive to create a world where hiring decisions are fair, balanced, and inclusive, valuing the uniqueness of every individual.
At Koios, we firmly believe in democratising access to personality insights. Traditionally, a deep understanding of personality traits and the human mind was a resource only afforded to select executive and leadership hiring. We strive to shatter this paradigm, making our services accessible to everyone, irrespective of their affluence, background, or demographics. We view personality insights as tools for self-knowledge, growth, and personal development rather than as barriers or selection tools. As such, our technology is designed to be inclusive and user-friendly, catering to a broad audience and varying levels of hiring.
Our commitment to accessibility extends beyond just our technology and interfaces. We strive to communicate complex concepts in a clear, understandable manner, ensuring that our insights can be easily grasped and leveraged by everyone. In doing so, we aim to empower individuals with the knowledge they need to understand themselves better and, in turn, maximise their potential. By democratising access to personality insights, we aim to level the playing field, enabling everyone to benefit from the power of self-understanding and personal growth.
At Koios, our commitment to ethics extends to every facet of our operations, but it holds particular weight in our data collection and usage practices. We understand the critical importance of collecting and using data responsibly and ethically, and we've designed our practices to honour that understanding.
We engaged an academic panel to recruit participants for our data collection, ensuring that the process was unbiased, fair, and respectful. Each of our respondents was remunerated at a rate approximately 20% higher than the minimum wage in their respective countries, demonstrating our commitment to fair compensation.
Transparency is a cornerstone of our approach. Each participant was fully informed about how we would use their data before they agreed to contribute. We take pride in the fact that every one of our respondents voluntarily chose to participate, armed with the knowledge of our intended data usage. On the note of privacy, we adhere strictly to the principle of data minimisation. We don't store any personally identifiable information about our respondents. All data we collected is anonymised and used solely for the purpose of enhancing the quality and inclusivity of our personality predictions.
We uphold these rigorous ethical standards not only because it's the right thing to do, but because we believe in building a culture of trust and respect with our respondents, users, and clients. They trust us with their data, and we honour that trust through our unwavering commitment to ethical data usage.
We place a significant emphasis on transparency while acknowledging the boundaries of our AI capabilities. We believe in openly discussing the complexities of our models, sharing our techniques, and being frank about their limitations:
Transparent Operations: Even with complex models, we aim to provide insight into our processes, data usage, and validation methods.
Limitations Disclosure: We openly share potential AI risks and challenges, promoting realistic expectations and informed use of our technology.
User Education: Through comprehensive resources, we help users navigate AI complexities, encouraging effective and aware application of our platform.
We strive to create AI models that are free from bias, and that promote fair and equitable outcomes for all users, irrespective of their race, gender, age, nationality, or socioeconomic status. To achieve this, we commit to:
Data Representativeness: Our data collection efforts will be meticulously inclusive, ensuring fair representation of diverse voices and experiences.
Bias Mitigation: We will actively combat bias in our models by conducting thorough fairness evaluations and adjusting our algorithms accordingly to promote equal performance across different user groups.
Our AI systems are designed to serve the needs of our users. As such, we commit to:
Strict Data Privacy: We staunchly protect user privacy with an unyielding policy of never selling data to third parties. Not today, not tomorrow — never.
Democratising AI: We will make our services accessible to everyone, offering a user-friendly experience and communicating complex information in a clear, understandable manner.
User-Inspired Evolution: We will continuously learn from our users, incorporating their feedback into our product development process to enhance our services.
Respecting the privacy of our users and responsibly handling their data is paramount to us. Our commitments in this area include:
Respectful Data Collection: We will collect data for training in a way that is fair, transparent, and respectful to the rights and interests of individuals.
Data Minimisation and Anonymization: We will only collect data necessary for improving our services, and we will ensure all data is anonymised to protect user privacy.
Secure Data Management: We will maintain robust data security practices to protect user data from unauthorised access and misuse.
We aim to create AI systems that contribute to societal well-being, fostering a culture of inclusion, understanding, and mutual growth. Our commitments in this area include:
Ethical Design and Deployment: We will design and deploy our AI systems in a manner that respects human rights and promotes societal benefits.
Positive Impact: We will aim for our technology to contribute to personal development and growth, offering actionable insights to help individuals and organisations unlock their potential.

This AI and behavioural psychology assessment tool, which is made available as a web application accessible via an internet browser (the “Platform”) is owned and operated by Culture Labs LTD (a company registered in England and Wales with registration number 12942450) (“us”, “our”, “we”, “Culture Labs”). We are the controller of the personal data that is collected when you access, use or visit the Platform.
This Policy explains who we are, why and how we process personal data collected through your use of our Platform and, if you are the subject of any of the personal data concerned, what rights you have and how to get in touch with us if you need to.
When you supply any personal data to us we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use that data. For ease of reading, we have divided this Policy into several sections:
By visiting or otherwise using the Platform, you agree to its terms (including as amended from time to time) and this Policy. If, for any reason, you do not agree to the terms of this Policy, please stop using the Platform. We reserve the right to revise, update or amend this Policy at any time to reflect changes to our business, the services we offer or changes in the law. Where these changes are significant we will endeavour to let users of the Platform know, most likely by way of showing you a notification when you next log in to the Platform. However, it is your responsibility to check this Policy before each use of the Platform and to make yourself aware of any changes. For ease of reference, the top of this Policy indicates the date on which it was last updated.
Please note that the Platform is not directed at individuals under the age of 18 and we do not knowingly collect personal data about individuals under this age (a "Child"). If you believe we have collected personal data about your Child, you may contact us at email@example.com and request that we cease processing data about your Child.
2. What information do we collect?
What is personal data?
Where this Policy refers to 'personal data' it is referring to data about you from which you could be identified – such as your name, your date of birth, your contact details and even your IP address.
By law, all organisations who process your personal data in the UK are obliged to process your personal data in certain ways and to ensure that you are given an appropriate amount of information about how they use it. You also have various rights to seek information from those organisations about how they are using your data, and to prevent them from processing it unlawfully. For more information about these rights, please see the 'Your Rights' section of this Policy.
What types of data we collect from you when you use the Platform
The personal data we collect from you depends on precisely what details you volunteer to us as you interact with the Platform but may include:
Certain types of personal data are categorised as sensitive and need more protection. For example: information about your race or ethnic origins, political opinions, sex life or sexual orientation, religious beliefs, health information, biometric and genetic data. There are also special rules about the use of criminal information (information about criminal convictions or allegations about criminal convictions). Collectively 'special category personal data'.
We will not usually collect special category personal data and we will only process this type of personal data about you if we have a valid reason for doing so and only if the law allows us to do so. One example where we may collect special category personal data from you is if we perform any diversity monitoring about engagement with the Platform.
3. How is your personal data collected?
Direct Interactions with Us
When you use the Platform or otherwise engage with us you are likely to provide a certain amount of personal data to us. This could be in response to various questions and forms which we present to you as part of the process of setting up your account or simply when you contact us to discuss the Platform or services we offer. This can include, amongst other types of data, Identity and Contact Data as you will provide us with details about your name and contact details as part of creating your account and populating your profile information.
We may collect, store and use any personal data about you that you provide, disclose or volunteer to us and/or upload to the Platform (for example: by setting up an account / signing up to the Platform or otherwise completing a registration form; subscribing to a service, publication or newsletter; requesting promotional materials or marketing to be sent to you; taking part in an online survey; filling in a form or questionnaire that we present to you; posting or otherwise messaging on the Platform; when you report a problem with the Platform; or when you contact us by e-mail, telephone, post or via chat functions where provided on the Platform).
Use of the Platform
When you interact with the Platform or use the Platform to interact with other users, where available, we will collect both the data that you upload to it (which may be included in messages that you send, or content that you upload) as well as data about how you are interacting with the Platform and with other users.
So, for example, if you send a message to another user we will collect information about the content of that message, as well as the fact that you sent that message to another user. Please be aware that we process data about private messages that you send in the same way as messages that you may post publicly.
Equally, we will collect information about the kind of services that are or information that is most frequently of use and interest to you on the Platform. This gives us a fairly detailed picture of what features on the Platform users find most useful. This is in addition to the information which we hold that relates to actions that you make in relation to services on the Platform.
Please always remember that most things posted on the Platform are viewable by other users in your organisation. So if you are able to post anything not only will we collect information about your posts but, depending on your or your organisation’s settings, other users of the Platform in your organisation will be able to see the information that you have posted as well.
Automated Technologies or Interactions
We will also collect personal data about you and various information about the technology you use through the use of technologies such as cookies when you visit and interact with the Platform.
The following are examples of information we may collect:
We use the data described above for several different reasons. Firstly, we use it to ensure that the Platform works properly, is secure and that you are able to receive the full benefit of it. Second, we use the data to monitor traffic and user participation across the Platform which helps us to improve the Platform’s functionality and optimise the ways that it operates. We undertake both of these activities because we have a legitimate interest in doing so.
Third Parties or Publicly Available Sources
We also partner with third parties who may collect anonymous usage or statistical data through your use of the Platform (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical and delivery of services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers).
We may obtain your personal data from other users or your organisation where you are invited by them to engage with the Platform. We also collect data from publicly available sources, such as social media. We may also obtain personal data from other sources where you log into the Platform using your Facebook, LinkedIn or Google account(s). In this instance, we will obtain personal data such as your username, social media account details, location and IP address from such third parties.
Updating Your InformationIf you want to update any of the information you have previously provided to us, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. How and why do we use and share your personal data?
Lawful Basis for Processing Your Information
We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:
Here are some examples of how we may use the information we collect about you and the lawful basis we rely on to do so.
Many of our communications will be administrative in nature. For example, to provide you with information about the Platform or your account on the Platform.
We may however use your personal data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you – including new functions and offerings on the Platform. This is how we decide which products, services, projects and content may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).
You will only receive marketing communications from us (such as e-mails or in Platform messaging) if you have requested information from us or you, or your organisation, have purchased content or services from us or via the Platform and you, or they, have not opted out of receiving such marketing at the time of purchase or engagement.
Opting Out of MarketingTo unsubscribe from marketing messages at any time, please click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any marketing messages. You may also change your communication preferences via the Platform or contact us directly if you do not wish to receive any marketing materials from us. Please note that should you ever 'opt out' of receiving marketing messages you will continue to receive administrative messages from us and we may retain your e-mail address, or other contact details, on file. We will retain your contact details in order to ensure that we continue to honour and respect that opt-out request.
Sharing Your Personal Data
Depending on how and why you provide us with your personal data we may share it in the following ways:
We may also disclose your personal data to third parties in the following events:
Our service providers provide us with a variety of administrative, statistical, and technical services. We will only provide service providers with the minimum amount of personal data they need to fulfil the services we request, and we stipulate that they protect this data and do not use it for any other purpose. We take these relationships seriously and oblige all of our data processors to sign contracts with us that clearly set out their commitment to respecting individual rights, and their commitments to assisting us to help you exercise your rights as a data subject. For more information on the service providers we use you can contact us at email@example.com.
Links to Third Party Sites
Where we provide links to third party websites, plug-ins and applications that are not affiliated with the Platform such sites are out of our control and are not covered by this Policy. If you access third party sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect personal data from you that could be used by them, in accordance with their own privacy policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to those websites.
5. For how long do we keep your personal data?
We will hold your personal data on our systems only for as long as required to provide you with the services you or your organisation have requested, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
Accordingly, you should expect us to keep your personal data for so long as you have a registered account on the Platform (whether that account is actively used or not and/or for as long as you are a subscriber to any of our newsletters (or other similar mailings). If you delete your account then we may need to keep some of the personal data associated with that account or services used under it, for up to six years (for the reasons described above).
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete some or all of your data earlier: see 'Your Rights' below for further information.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. We may also collect, use and share aggregated data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated data could be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your usage data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific feature of the Platform.
We take the protection of your information very seriously. We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed, including the use of secure servers, data backup and retrieval procedures, periodic data integrity and access reviews, encryption and passwords. If you have ever chosen a password, or we have given you one, which enables you to access certain parts of this Platform, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share the password with anyone.
In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
7. International Data Transfers
If you are based in Europe please note that we use service providers that may be based outside of the UK and/or the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). These service providers may work for us or for one of our suppliers and may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your request for information from the Platform, the provision of services or other support services.
We endeavour to minimise the number of international data transfers which take place without your prior knowledge and authorisation (such as where you use the Platform to interact directly with another user who is based outside of the UK or EEA, or where the transfer is one that you actively make happen). Where we do use providers based outside of Europe, we usually do so in order to ensure that the Platform can work seamlessly in multiple jurisdictions including, where relevant, where users in one jurisdiction wish to interact with others.
Where we transfer your data to a service provider that is outside of the UK or EEA we seek to ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place to make sure that your personal data is held securely and that your rights as a data subject are upheld.
Transfers of personal data are either made:
By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. If you would like more information about the mechanism via which your personal data is transferred, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
8. Your Rights
If you are resident in the UK or the EEA then the following information about your rights is relevant to you. This part of the Policy is a mandatory statement which summarises certain laws applicable in your jurisdiction. It is not a replacement for, nor an extension of, your legal rights so should be read only as a summary of that legislation.
This section is not applicable to you if you do not reside in one of the regions described above. If you are a resident of one of the regions described above then you have the following rights in relation to your personal data held by us: Right of Access; You may, at any time, request access to the personal data that we hold which relates to you (you may have heard of this right being described as a "subject access request").
Please note that this right entitles you to receive a copy of the personal data that we hold about you in order to enable you to check that it is correct and to ensure that we are processing that personal data lawfully. It is not a right that allows you to request personal data about other people, or a right to request specific documents from us that do not relate to your personal data.
You can exercise this right at any time by writing to us and telling us that you are making a subject access request. You do not have to fill in a specific form to make this request.
Your Right to Rectification and Erasure
You may, at any time, request that we correct personal data that we hold about you that you believe is incorrect or inaccurate. You may also ask us to erase personal data if you do not believe that we need to continue retaining it (you may have heard of this right described as the "right to be forgotten").
Please note that we may ask you to verify any new data that you provide to us and may take our own steps to check that the new data you have supplied us with is right. Further, we are not always obliged to erase personal data when asked to do so if, for example, we have an ongoing legal obligation or need to continue processing that personal data.
You can exercise this right at any time by writing to us and telling us that you are making a request to have your personal data rectified or erased and on what basis you are making that request. If you want us to replace inaccurate data with new data, you should tell us what that new data is. You do not have to fill in a specific form to make this kind of request.
Your Right to Restrict Processing
Where we process your personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest (see the section of this Policy which explains how and why we use your information) you are entitled to ask us to stop processing it in that way if you feel that our continuing to do so impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms or if you feel that those legitimate interests are not valid.
You may also ask us to stop processing your personal data (a) if you dispute the accuracy of that personal data and want us verify that data's accuracy; (b) where it has been established that our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where we no longer need to process your personal data (and would otherwise dispose of it) but you wish for us to continue storing it in order to enable you to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
You can exercise this right at any time by writing to us and telling us that you are making a request to have us stop processing the relevant aspect of your personal data and describing which of the above conditions you believe is relevant to that request. You do not have to fill in a specific form to make this kind of request.
Your Right to Portability
Where you wish to transfer personal data that we hold about you, which is processed by automated means, to a third party you may write to us and ask us to provide it to you in a commonly used machine-readable format.
Because of the kind of work that we do and the systems that we use, we do not envisage this right being particularly relevant to the majority of individuals with whom we interact. However, if you wish to transfer your data to a third party we are happy to consider such requests.
Your Right to Stop Receiving Communications
Where we send you e-mail marketing communications (or other regulated electronic messages) you have the right to opt-out at any time. You can do this by using the 'unsubscribe' link that appears in the footer of each communication (or the equivalent mechanism in those communications).
Alternatively, if for any reason you cannot use those links, or if you would prefer to contact us directly – you can unsubscribe by writing to us at email@example.com and telling us which communications you would like us to stop sending you. Please note that where you request a change in this way it is likely to take longer for your request to take effect.
Your Right to Object to Automated Decision Making And ProfilingYou have the right to be informed about the existence of any automated decision making and profiling of your personal data, and where appropriate, be provided with meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing that affects you.
If you want more information about any automated decision making and profiling or to object to the same you can exercise this right at any time by writing to us and telling us that you are making such a request. You do not have to fill in a specific form to make this kind of request.
Exercising Your Rights
When you write to us making a request to exercise your rights we are entitled to ask you to prove that you are who you say you are. We may ask you to provide copies of relevant ID documents to help us to verify your identity. It will help us to process your request if you clearly state which rights you wish to exercise and, where relevant, why it is that you are exercising it. The clearer and more specific you can be, the faster and more efficiently we can deal with your request. If you do not provide us with sufficient information then we may delay actioning your request until you have provided us with additional information (and where this is the case we will tell you). You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
If you are unhappy with the way that we have processed your data then you have the right to lodge a complaint with your local data and privacy regulator. If you wish to do so then you can write to them using their published contact details. We would however appreciate the chance to address your concerns before you approach the supervisory authority so please contact us in the first instance.
If you are located in the UK then your local regulator is the Information Commissioner's Office. If you are resident of the European Union then details of your local regulator are published by the European Data Protection Board.
