2. Description of the S-3 Solution
The Leadership Simulation is a SaaS based predictive simulation designed to minimize bias and objectively measures whether a participant deploys “today’s must have Leadership Competencies” when under executive pressure.
The S-3 Dashboard is a unique, state of the art, analytics dashboard providing data and information regarding the results generated from Leadership Simulations.
Participants in the Leadership Simulation (“Users”) will receive personal reports regarding the results of their participation (“User Reports”).
The System-3 customer (“Customer”) who has referred the User to participate in the Leadership Simulation will receive reports, data and analysis regarding the results of such User’s participation in the Leadership Simulation including, but not limited to, through data provided on the S-3 Dashboard (all such information and reports, in any form whether written or oral, together, “Customer Reports”).
The Customer may share Customer Reports internally, with their personnel, affiliates and contractors who have a need to know such information pursuant to the MSA and, when applicable, with Customer’s clients, consultants, portfolio companies, investors or other permitted third-party recipients on a confidential basis (together “Permitted Recipients”). The Permitted Recipients are identified in the applicable MSA (as defined below). System-3 may also share Customer Reports directly with Permitted Recipients and Permitted Recipients may be granted access to the S-3 Dashboard to access Customer Reports.
Customers engage System-3 in a variety of circumstances, including (i) for the purposes of an internal talent management/assessment/recruitment for their organization, (ii) to assess existing or potential portfolio companies, or (iii) to utilize the Solution with their clients as part of a service that Customers provide to their clients (each such engagement, a “Project”). Each Project is governed by a Master Services Agreement between the Customer and System-3 (the “MSA”).
