Your use of this feature is entirely voluntary, and the information you provide Us is up to you. If you request for Us to contact you, other than an email address, you are not required to provide any personal information and We encourage you not to include any information that We do not need or that you do not want Us to have.

We collect information that is necessary in to fulfill your order request such as shipping address, credit card information and your email address to provide you with a confirmation notice.

Online Assessments:

We collect information that you choose to provide to Us when you register for one of our web-based assessment programs (“Assessment (s)”). Your use of this feature is entirely voluntary, and the information you provide Us is up to you. However, if you do not provide any personal information, the Assessment may be incomplete, inaccurate or ineffective. If insufficient information is provided, we may not be able to provide you complete or any results for the Assessment you registered for.

If you choose to participate in an Assessment, We will need to obtain your email address and a first/ last name or nickname. A Practitioner may provide this information to Us when registering an assessment. The Practitioner will provide an individual’s (1) first name/last name/nickname which becomes the “Username” with which each individual is identified during the administration process and on the reports displaying their results; and (2) email address so the account information can be emailed directly to the couple for login purposes. Once an Assessment online has been ordered, the client can login and provide the information required for that Assessment which may include the following:

  • Background Items, such as, gender, age, ethnic background, city, and country. Only age and gender are required for the scoring of the Assessments, but are not printed in the results if requested by the Practitioner.
  • Assessment Items, which consists of your opinion regarding various aspects of your personality and relationship. These responses are recorded numerically and are stored in a secure password protected database and used to calculate Assessment results.

  • Credit card information for online purchases. When you use the T-JTA Online Assessment website, you trust us with your information. We use your information to provide, maintain, protect, and improve the T-JTA Terms of Service.

Practitioners/Group Leaders/Instructors:

We maintain contact information for Practitioners, group leaders and instructors for various purposes, including authenticating certification status, organizational communications, email correspondence, and the shipping of printed materials. Practitioners in the United States have the option of being listed on our online referral database. A listing status can be changed at any time by contacting our customer service, or going through the website. For Practitioners who choose to be listed on the referral database, they are agreeing to have, at a minimum, their name, Practitioner’s type, city, state, and phone number listed in the database. They can also list a denominational affiliation or language preference if so desired. This information is then made available to the general public.
