2. Description of Services provided

a) Services of a general and not professional nature offered to determine an Intelligence Quotient using an automated analysis matrix

The Site offers a recreational service to calculate the Intelligence Quotient (IQ) based on a set of multiple-choice questions.

Answers to the questions are handled by means of an automated process involving a designated analysis matrix which aims to establish a theoretical Intelligence Quotient for the User.

Consequently, the Intelligence Quotient calculated by the Site as well as its interpretation are only indications issued as a result of the responses and information given by the User during a limited questionnaire to characterize and quantify the theoretical Intelligence Quotient in a specific moment, after having been weighted by age, gender and country of the User.

Therefore, the Publisher insists in particular on the fact that the proposed services do not in any way constitute services or therapeutic, psychological or psychiatric medical opinion and that this list is non-exhaustive. The proposed services, being only for recreational purposes, cannot any way replace medical or professional advice.

b) Taking the test

Taking the test is free and consists of the User responses to a series of a non-personalized multiple choice questions intended to be analyzed automatically to determine a theoretical Intelligence Quotient using an automated process.

The determination of the theoretical Intelligence Quotient requires, at the outcome of the last question of the test, possessing a Facebook profile in order to be able to validate the Test by connecting to the Site using the "Facebook Connect" service displayed in the prompt window.

The analysis engine for the responses to the questions requires being able to access certain information communicated by the User in his/her Facebook profile in order to calculate his/her Intelligence Quotient and be able to send the results (including, but not only age, gender, country and email).

In addition, the User will be invited to grant or not to the Site rights of publication on his/her Facebook "wall" in order to be able to receive his/her theoretical Intelligence Quotient via a personalized Facebook message. The options of visibility of this message on Facebook can be determined by the User, either at the time of the invitation by the Site (show no one, show only me, show only my "Facebook friends", or show anyone), or directly on the Facebook site.

Once this connection step is completed, the User will be able to:

  • Access, for a fee, the Site page (Report) on which will have been generated, and will be posted, the results of the detailed analysis of his/her theoretical Intelligence Quotient.
  • Be informed free of charge, in a deferred manner (after a processing period varying from a few minutes to several days) and only if the User has granted the Site the right, of his/her theoretical Intelligence Quotient via a message automatically posted on his/her Facebook "wall". In this case, the User will not be able to have access to the detailed analysis of his/her theoretical Intelligence Quotient.

Once the test is completed by the User, the User may then be informed of results on the theoretical Intelligence Quotient corresponding to his/her responses and Facebook profile.
