1. User Supplied Information
- You control who has access to Your Data
- The Data entered, or imported on instruction, by You is stored securely in a database and is only accessible to any person You have authorised to use the Service (Invited Users).
- By using the Service you (whether an individual or company or other legal entity), your Employee, and your Guests are asked to supply information in order for the Service to perform its core purpose – that being the management of people into and out of your organisations operations.
- When you register an account to become a WhosOnLocation client we record Employee and/or Contractor (User) profile information such as names, e-mail, department, phone, mobile and a password. If Add-ons are activated User information can include a photo and uploaded documents against their profile.
- When Guests check into and out of the Service we record their name, where they are from, and the date and time they arrived onsite and departed. Other information can be captured depending on the requirements of the client.
- We use this information to provide the core Service of WhosOnLocation. Information is available to users via the Service tools or by your direct request to our helpdesk. The information we collect in this manner is not used for any other purpose. No personal customer, user, Employee or visitor data will be copied to, or shared with, any other party without the prior written consent of you.
- As the data entered into the Service is managed by you, we are not responsible for the integrity of the data entered into the Service nor any consequences resulting from incorrectly entered information.
2. It is Your responsibility to keep Your password safe
- WhosOnLocation, WhosOnLocation’s Employees and WhosOnLocation’s partners do not have access to Your password and are therefore unable to access Your Organisation’s account or Data without receiving an invitation to do so from You via the Helpdesk.
3. Disclosure of Information
- We may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property or other users of the Service, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires the disclosure.

4. Information Sharing, Data Protection, and Security of the Data Collected
1. Information Sharing

We may disclose such information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

WhosOnLocation may also provide non-personal, summary or group statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related Site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personal information.
2. Protection of Information
- WhosOnLocation is committed to ensuring the security of your personal information. We take every precaution to protect the confidentiality and security of the personal information placed on the Site or used within the Service, by employing technological, physical and administrative security safeguards, such as firewalls and carefully-developed security procedures. For example, when You enter sensitive information (such as login credentials and all your activity on our Service platform) We encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). These technologies, procedures and other measures help ensure that your data is safe, secure, and only available to You and to those You authorized access.
- The Service uses COMODO 2048-Bit Encryption to secure data information transfer, is EV SSL Certified, and is stored in a secure server facility in major Data Centres. The Data Warehouses are physically protected as there is no external signage identifying the buildings, there is a 24 hour Security Guard posted on-site, the facilities are monitored for intrusion 24 hours a day. Guests must provide Photo ID and are escorted throughout their visit. To minimise systems outage and Service down-time the facility employs multiple UPS’s and on-site generators.
