2. Primary User Data Collection

The services are always accessible at https://wsn.wirelessthings.biz/v2/SITENAME (site-name – the customer user identifier)
Such a portal can only be set up after a contractual agreement with the user. Login credentials are set by APINTECH- WT by mail; users can then manage their account. 

To register a user the following information will be required:

As said, the information is important for your identification and entering the APINTECH- WT portal as a valid user.  This information will be retained by us and used as described in this privacy policy. It is stored in our databases (residing with Hetzner, Germany) for the sole reason of allowing your seamless access to the APINTECH- WT Services that you have contracted us to supply you with. This information is not made available to any third party, whatsoever. It is also not automatically deleted from our databases. Should you desire to completely erase it from our databases you can send a mail to info [at] apintech [dot] com or use our website contact form requesting your data to be completely removed from our databases. This request will be executed in one month.

3. User contracts and their impact on user data

In case a user wishes to terminate his contract, the dashboard service and all related personal data will be eliminated from our servers. No specific request is needed. The user will be asked if he wishes to receive this information as a .sql file. In case no response is provided the data will be erased and no backup will be kept.

In case a user wishes to eliminate only his account but not the service he has to email us here info [at] apintech [dot] comAt this moment in time, no other third party interferes with our app and collects data from it. If this changes then the privacy policy will be updated.

4. Secondary User Data Collection

APINTECH- WT collects massive sensor data from the user site. These data do not in principle relate to humans although they may do so indirectly. For example, an occupancy sensor may measure headcount in spaces. Although this is anonymous and non-camera-based information, it can potentially assist in deriving information as to some users' whereabouts. 
In principle, all this data is owned by the user. He can request, at any time, to receive them at no cost as a .sql file. Any other format will have to be separately considered and fees may apply. The data will neither be made available to any third party nor automatically erased from our databases as long as there is a contract with the user or his organization. For this to happen, you must explicitly raise the issue by emailing us as above.  Upon termination of the contract, the procedure described above [in 3] will apply.
