3. STORAGE AND PROTECTION OF DATA
All collected information that relates in one way or another to the Customer is protected by encryption and passwords in FieldSense’ own internal systems and in third party systems where necessary, for instance, in external bookkeeping systems and CRM.
The data required for FieldSense’ operations and general business, exclusively including business information used for billing and contact between FieldSense and the Customer, will be available to FieldSense’ external accountant according to the need-to-know principle. For example, FieldSense may share the Customer’s company information with FieldSense’ affiliated accountant in the event of non-payment, overdue payments, and similar situations.
If the Customer wishes to terminate his/her subscriptions in FieldSense, the above-mentioned collected data relating to the Customer will be stored in anonymized form. If the Customer wishes that this data ceases to be used by FieldSense in anonymized form, the Customer has the right, upon request, to have the collected personal data deleted by FieldSense. However, FieldSense reserves the right to continue to store and use data that is not considered personal, such as company information and data specific to the Application.
4. USE OF DATA
As a general rule, FieldSense does not apply and disseminate the Customer’s personal data.
FieldSense exclusively uses personal data for operations related to daily operations and administration, including billing, bookkeeping and general customer contact. Upon the signing of a purchase agreement between FieldSense and the Customer, the Customer must give his or her consent that FieldSense may contact the Customer in connection with the dissemination of system update messages, training material and marketing material. The Customer may opt out that FieldSense may make contact. The Customer may also withdraw his or her consent at any time.
FieldSense uses other data specific to the Application (such as data from satellites and weather stations) associated with the Customer’s account with the intent to further develop and optimize the Application. This data is not considered personal data. The purpose of this will always be to improve the Application and the Customer’s experience. The data will specifically be used to develop new features, including artificially intelligent decision-support systems that use data that is not sensitive to the Customer’s privacy.
