This is the updated version of our Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy. Please read carefully.


Content of the document

This is the Cookie Policy and Privacy Policy for website. Please, read the following text carefully to understand how we protect your privacy, which data we collect and why, and what options and rights you have in terms of your privacy, while browsing our website.

If anything is unclear after reading this text, contact us at privacy[at]interviewpenguin[dot]com (or you can contact us by direct mail, using the contact address you will find in the bottom of the page).


Initial statement

Before going into details, we want to clarify a few things:

  • We never send marketing emails to our visitors. We also do not run any newsletter, or have a signup form, or contact form on our website.
  • We do not offer an option to register on the website, or any similar option that will result in us collecting any sensitive data or information about you.
  • We do our best to anonymize all data that can be considered personal under the new GDPR legislation. For example, we use Google Analytics IP anonymization tool, and we serve only non-personalized ads to all our visitors coming from EEA region.
  • Our main goal is to provide you with useful and free content, that will help you to succeed in your professional career, write a great resume, ace an interview, and get a job of your choice.
  • We do not share any data or information with third parties, unless directly specified on this page.


Data that we collect from every visitor, and why we collect them

1. Website Function Cookies

We use cookies to make our website work including remembering your search settings (when using search button on the page). There is no way to prevent these cookies being set other than to not use our site.

2. Anonymous visitor statistics cookies

Anonymized data, collected by Google Analytics, such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when our site isn’t working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website, and deliver new and useful content for you, and all our visitors.

It is impossible to identify a particular person from the anonymous data collected by Google Analytics. We have also turned off all options in Google Analytics settings that may (when turned on) result in Google sharing our traffic data with their partners (Google products & services, Bench-marking, Account specialist are disabled in our account).

You can still opt out from Google Analytics cookies, following the steps outlined here: Opt out from Google Analytics cookies. You can read their privacy policy here: Google privacy policy.


2. Google Adwords cookies – non-personalized data

To support our website, and to cover the hosting and domain expenses associated with running our business, we display some Ads from Google Adwords network on the pages on our website. However, for all visitors coming from EEA region, we display only non-personalized ads.

Cookies are widely used in online advertising. Neither us, advertisers or our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies.

Non-personalized ads are ads that are not based on a user’s past behavior. They are targeted using contextual information, including coarse (such as city-level) geo-targeting based on current location, and content on the current site or app or current query terms. Google disallows all interest-based audience targeting, including demographic targeting and user list targeting for these ads.

Although non-personalized ads don’t use cookies or mobile ad identifiers for ad targeting, they do still use cookies or mobile ad identifiers for frequency capping, aggregated ad reporting, and to combat fraud and abuse.

You can opt from these cookies, following the instructions in this article: Google Adwords opt out. Again, you can read Google Privacy Policy on the following link: Google privacy policy.

You can learn more about online advertising at . You can actually opt-out of almost all advertising cookies at . It is worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won’t see adverts, just simply that they won’t be tailored to you any longer.

Another alternative to indirectly opt out from cookies related to Google Ads, is installing Ad blocker (if you install it, you won’t see any Ads, and no cookies related to Ads will be sent to your device).

It is up to you to decide what action you will take.


Data that we collect from our customers only

After your purchase, the only data that are stored in our database, are:

  • Your name

  • Time and date of your purchase
  • Name of the item you purchased

Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest buttons

Some of our webpages use social plug-ins from other organizations (such as the “Facebook like” button, Twitter’s tweet function, etc). These other organizations may receive and use personal data about your visit to our sites, if you are logged in to the respective service.

Advice: If you have any doubt about the practices of these organizations, or about their privacy policy, simply do not use the share/like buttons, and log out from each social network before browsing this website, or any other website.


We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational controls to protect your personal data against unauthorized processing and against accidental loss, damage or destruction.

Unfortunately, sending information via the internet is never completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data once with us, we cannot guarantee the security of any personal data sent to our site while still in transit and so you provide it at your own risk.
