Data Privacy Policy

At My Speaking Score, we guard your data. 

We understand that your personal information is important and we are committed to respecting it and protecting it. 

No outside institution, organization, or individual has access to your data.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties any of the personal data that we collect from you. 

The information we collect is used solely for the purpose of providing and improving our services and to help you gain insights into your English speaking skills. We share your speech samples only with ETS and My Speaking Score personnel who have signed a non-disclosure agreement. 

We do not pass any information about you (e.g. your name or email) to ETS. Your speech samples are scored by ETS's SpeechRater scoring engine anonymously and your score is returned securely to your account. 

Everyone who has access to your data is legally obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of that information, and they are prohibited from using it for any other purpose other than to serve you better. For example, we regularly listen to responses to monitor audio output quality, page load speed, display details, and other user experience metrics that matter to our customers.

Why we collect your personal information

  • Help you understand your English speaking skills and scores
