Privacy Policy

We take your privacy seriously and will take all measures to protect your personal information. Your responses to test questions on this website are entirely voluntary and will be used, anonymously, in ongoing research by HIGH5, the creators of this test, and other researchers with HIGH5’s permission. By visiting and completing the test, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.


You have two ways of registering for the taking the test – using the social network of your choice or using your email. Please note that by using social network of your choice you are subject to their privacy policy. HIGH5 only has access to public information, which is later used to compute aggregated statistics for the research of the strengths effect on human happiness.

If you decide to register with email, we also ask you to give us a name that you would like to use. These are for your benefit. They make it easier for you to remember how to log in here. They make it possible for us to tell you your password if you forget it. And they help you be sure that you are looking at your own records if you share your computer with another user of this site. We display your name when you log in and include it in your printable report. If you do not want to share your real name, you can make up a name.

You are not required to give us your real e-mail address or name, but we hope that you will in case you need any help with your account. If we receive a request for information about your account, the response will be sent to the registered address, not the one making the request, unless we can verify that the registered address is an invalid or defective address and that the person making the request is the person who created the account. Providing a real email address will also enable us to send you useful information and resources for utilizing your strengths.

If you register and complete the HIGH5 test following coach’es / consultant’s invitation, your information (name, email address and survey results/responses) will be shared with that professional.  Your registration through their link will serve as permission to do so.
