Pervidi Paperless Solutions Apps

The Pervidi Paperless Solution collects some Personal Data from its Users.  In particular:

  • The Pervidi Proximity configuration uses LOCATION services in the background to search for nearby beacons in order to identify proximity and alert users. Pervidi does NOT use the LOCATION service to identify or record our users’ physical location.  Since user information is managed by our customers, Pervidi does not collect any personal information from users.
  • Pervidi eLog does not automatically collect information from our users. Authorized eLog users can type patrons information including patron’s name and telephone number.  No other information is collected by Pervidi.
  • Pervidi Paperless Inspections does not collect any personal information from our users.

Pervidi uses personal information for the purpose of providing the required App functionality.  Personal information is never shared, sold, or provided to any 3rd party (unless required by law).

Users may be subject to different protection standards and broader standards may therefore apply to some. In order to learn more about the protection criteria, Users can refer to the applicability section.  This document can be printed for reference by using the print command in the settings of any browser.

  • Users have given their consent for one or more specific purposes. Note: Under some legislations Techs4Biz may be allowed to process Personal Data until the User objects to such processing (“opt-out”), without having to rely on consent or any other of the following legal bases. This, however, does not apply, whenever the processing of Personal Data is subject to European data protection law;

The Data is processed at Techs4Biz’s operating offices and in any other places where the parties involved in the processing are located.  Depending on the User’s location, data transfers may involve transferring the User’s Data to a country other than their own.
