Maximum Advantage Assessment Products Terms and Conditions

Maximum Advantage provides psychometric assessments, training, and all other products (“Product(s)”) subject to these terms and conditions (“T&C”). Please review these terms and conditions prior to using any Product. Using any product signifies your agreement with these terms and conditions. If you do not agree with these terms and conditions, return the Product(s) for a refund.

Purpose and Limitations of Assessments

The purpose of all assessments provided by Maximum Advantage is to help guide managers to make better hiring and employee development decisions. You should never base any hiring or other personnel decision solely on the outcome of any assessment. Rather, all decisions should be made based upon your professional judgment with the assessment results being one component of your decision.

Accuracy of Results
Even during multiple face to face interviews it is possible for candidates to answer questions deceptively or enhance their answers to be whey they think you want to hear. While many of our assessments include a ‘distortion score’ or other indicators which provide an indication of how candid and frank the respondent was while taking this assessment, Maximum Advantage cannot guarantee the accuracy of the results provided to you by any employee or candidate.

Benchmark Quality

The results obtained by using our assessments will be influenced by the accuracy of the ‘benchmarks’ or ‘job match patterns’ that are created by the user to define the requirements of a specific position, therefore it is critical that you follow the steps outlined beginning on page 1-14 or the PXT Technical manual to insure the integrity of the benchmarks. Failure to follow these steps can negatively impact the results obtained using the Profile XT. Even if we assist you in the creation of benchmarks, the final acceptance and accuracy of the benchmarks is yours.

Required Training
While the reports provided by our assessment products are largely easy-to-use and self explanatory, they should never be used by anyone who has not been trained by an authorized Maximum Advantage trainer. In addition, all users should obtain, review, and understand the documentation and technical manuals provided with each product. You agree that Maximum Advantage has not made any representations either verbally or in writing about the capabilities or use of the products other than those found in documentation for the product.

Disparate Impact
Our assessment provider, Profiles International has created validated and reliable assessment tools to the extent documented in the technical manual for each assessment. The assessments have been developed by an experienced team with an excellent reputation and the assessments have been rigorously evaluated under both federal and conservative state standards.

Nonetheless, an employer utilizing assessments is advised to measure the impact of the test on their specific hiring practices independently of the reliability and validation studies set forth in the assessments’ Technical Manual in order to insure that there is no disparate impact with regard their specific hiring practices.

Specific State Laws
It is the responsibility of the user to understand and comply with state specific laws relating to the use of assessments in their state.

Legal and Other Advice
You agree that Maximum Advantage is not engaged in rendering legal, or other professional service. If legal advice is required, the services of a competent professional person should be sought.
Any assistance or advice regarding the creation of benchmarks, the selection of candidates, or other human resources topics are only opinions and are provided “as is”, with no warranties or representations. As with all other aspects of using assessments, all final decisions rest with the user.

Authorized Business Partner
You agree that Maximum Advantage is only a strategic business partner of Profiles International Inc., and therefore you release and waive all claims against Maximum Advantage, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, agents or content providers, and the directors, trustees, officers, shareholders, employees, agents and representatives of each of the foregoing, from any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses arising out of your use of the assessments.

Governing Law
These terms and conditions shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the United States and the State of Pennsylvania, without reference to their rules regarding conflicts of law. You hereby irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state or federal courts in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, United States in all disputes arising out of or related to the use of the products.
