Pearson VUE Information Policy Relating to Test Center Applications

NCS Pearson has adopted the following Policy concerning information that it may receive related to Test Center Applications submitted through this website.

Test Center Applications

Through the Test Center Applications available on this website, a firm may apply to become a Pearson VUE® Authorized Test Center. Data collection is voluntary and business entity related, but necessary for making application. You may cancel the session before application submission if you do not wish to share the data requested in the Test Center Application. We use the information collected on the Test Center Application to evaluate and qualify the applicant firm. Any Test Center Application is subject to acceptance by NCS Pearson, and an applicant will not be considered a Pearson VUE Authorized Test Center until a definitive written agreement has been signed by both the applicant and Pearson VUE.

Certification and Licensure Test Services

Through this website, Pearson VUE also offers test registration for certification and licensure tests. Pearson VUE has a separate Privacy Policy applicable to personal information collected from certification and licensure test candidates at www.pearsonvue.com/legal/privacy.

Information from Children

This website and our Test Center Applications are not directed to children or anyone under the age of thirteen (13). Rather, Testing Center Applications are designed for a business interested in becoming a Pearson VUE Authorized Test Center. NCS Pearson will not, through this website or through a Test Center Application, knowingly collect, maintain or use any personally identifiable information about anyone under the age of thirteen (13).
