1.1        ABOUT US

SwiftConnect digitizes and automates the physical workplace, beginning with providing conditional universal access across any location wherever you are. Our solution grants companies the power of flexible space usage. The solution gives companies and employees adaptable scheduling, fluid visitor management, variable space usage, as well as space analytics.

1.2        OVERVIEW

This Privacy Policy describes the information that we collect from you via our website (“Website” or “Site“), our SaaS platform (“Platform“), as well as all related mobile and desktop applications, widgets, SDKs, software, tools, APIs, and other services provided by us (collectively, together with the Website and Platform, our “Service“) or other means. This Privacy Policy also describes our use and disclosure of such information.

1.3        SCOPE OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY

Our Privacy Policy applies to anyone using the Service (collectively, “you“). Please note, however, that this Privacy Policy does not apply to the extent that you have entered into an agreement, privacy policy, or other terms with one of our customers (a “Customer“), and we process your Personal Information in the role of a service provider or a data processor for such Customer. In our role as a service provider or a data processor, we will solely process your Personal information as necessary for us to provide the applicable services to our Customer. By way of example, this Privacy Policy will not apply to you in the following circumstances:

  • Your employer or potential employer provides us with your Personal Information, as necessary for us to connect to, enable, or otherwise utilize the single sign-on (SSO) or other authentication or access credentialing method implemented by our Customer.
  • The landlord, property management company, or other relevant party where you live, work, or visit provides us with your Personal Information, as necessary for us to connect to, enable, or otherwise utilize the authentication or access credentialing method implemented by our Customer.
  • We collect your Personal Information directly from you, as requested or permitted by, or otherwise on behalf of, our Customer for the purposes of verifying your identity, enabling your use of our mobile app or other technology, and otherwise enabling the services and technology we provide to Customers.
  • We share your Personal Information (whether provided by our Customer or obtained directly from you) with third parties as required to fulfill the services we provide to our Customer. These third parties may include the third party providers of your mobile wallet, an SSO platform, access control system, other third party apps or services used by our Customer, or our hosting services.

In such context, the applicable Customer, and not SwiftConnect, is responsible for, and controls, the processing of your Personal Information, subject to the agreement, privacy policy, or other terms between you and such Customer, and not this Privacy Policy.

Please contact the applicable Customer if you have inquiries regarding the Personal Information that we may have collected or otherwise processed on behalf of such Customer, or if you would like to exercise any rights that you may have with respect to such Personal Information under Applicable Law.

2        YOUR CONSENT TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

You indicate your consent to this Privacy Policy in different ways, depending on your relationship with us, as set forth below. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully; once you consent to this Privacy Policy and its terms, it creates legal obligations on you and on us.

2.1        CONSENT BY NON-REGISTERED USERS

We have structured our Service so that you are able to view certain information available on our Service and use certain of our Services without registering an account with us. By accessing, downloading, or otherwise using our Service as a non-registered user, you are acknowledging that you have read and understood this Privacy Policy and agree to be legally bound by it. In order to participate in certain Services, we may require you to affirm your consent to and understanding of this Privacy Policy using additional methods that we specify during the applicable process.

2.2        CONSENT BY REGISTERED USERS

2.4        RIGHT TO WITHDRAW CONSENT

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, as set out in this Privacy Policy, including by contacting us at support@swiftconnect.io.

3        THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

The information that we collect about you falls into certain categories as further described in this Section 3(The Information We Collect). This information consists of the following:

3.1        PERSONAL INFORMATION

“Personal Information,” as used in this policy, is information that identifies you as an individual. The Personal Information we collect may include the following categories of information:

  • Your name, email address, and password;
  • Your other contact information, including a mailing address and phone number;
  • Your date of birth;
  • Your company, employee ID, organization, division, department, manager, and other details;
  • Geolocation Information;
  • Access control event data collected or that we may determine based on your interaction with our Service or devices connected to our Service, such as when you use (or attempt to use) a door, turnstile, other entry point, or other device requiring physical identity verification (e.g., printer), including associated location and timestamp information.

3.2        ONLINE ACTIVITY INFORMATION; ANONYMOUS INFORMATION

Our Platform also collects, processes, and/or uses information that does not identify you or your devices, including Personal Information that has been made anonymous by: (i) removing identifying fields and aggregating the information with other information so that individual subjects of the information cannot be re-identified, or (ii) anonymizing the information with techniques that remove or modify the identifying data so as to prevent re-identification of the anonymized information (collectively, “Anonymous Information“). Information that meets these criteria might include, for example, demographic information, statistical information (e.g., page views and hit counts), and general tracking information. We may use and disclose Anonymous Information, for various purposes, including for our business operations. Please note that because Anonymous Information does not include Personal Information, Anonymous Information is outside the scope of this Privacy Policy.

We also collect technical and device-related information through our Platform (collectively, “Online Activity Information“). Online Activity Information is typically collected automatically by technical means and may consist of the following:

  • Device identifiers;
  • Device information, such as hardware and software settings;
  • IP addresses and log information, such as your device’s name, the type and version of your web browser, and referrer addresses that can function to identify a user device; and
  • Tracking information that we, or a third party, may collect, including via Cookies (as further explained in Section 7 (Cookie Privacy Policy)).

To the extent that statutes, regulations, and any other laws that apply to the Services (collectively, “Applicable Law“) establish that Online Activity Information constitutes Personal Information, and such Applicable Law applies to information we collect from you, then we will treat the relevant Online Activity Information as Personal Information. In addition, sometimes Online Activity Information can be associated with your Personal Information, in which case we will treat it as Personal Information (as described in Section 3.3 (Treatment of Combined Information)). Otherwise we consider, and treat, Online Activity Information as Anonymous Information.

3.3        TREATMENT OF COMBINED INFORMATION

To enable us to better understand the characteristics of our users and/or to provide Services tailored to your needs, we may link your Personal Information with Online Activity Information associated with you or other Anonymous Information. If we combine Online Activity Information or Anonymous Information with Personal Information, then we will treat the resulting combination as Personal Information.

4        HOW WE COLLECT THIS INFORMATION

4.1        PASSIVE INFORMATION COLLECTION

Our primary purpose in collecting Personal Information is to provide you with a safe, seamless, efficient, and customized experience. This allows us to provide services and features that are most suited to meet your needs, and to customize our Service to make your experience safer and easier to use.

When you use the Service, some information may be automatically collected, such as your IP address, browser type, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Site, “referring URL” (i.e., the page from which you navigated to the Site), the pages you navigate to on the Site, and from which you leave the Site, as well as the time you spend on the Site. These technologies provide us with Anonymous Information, including Online Activity Information and, in certain instances, Personal Information.

We collect this information passively using technologies such as standard server logs, SDKs, Cookies, and clear GIFs (also known as “web beacons”). We use passively collected information to administer, operate, and improve the Site and our other services and systems, and to provide services and content that are tailored to you. If we link or associate any information gathered through passive means with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information under this policy. Otherwise, we use information collected by passive means in a non-personally identifiable form only.

You always have the option to not provide information by choosing not to use the Service or by not using the particular feature of the Site for which the information is being collected.

Likewise, the UK General Data Protection Regulation tailored by the Data Protection Act 2018 (“UK GDPR“) may apply to you when you are located in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (“UK“) under the same circumstances.

In this Section 10.3 (Notices Regarding Your Privacy Rights under the GDPR), we refer to both the EU GDPR and the UK GDPR as “GDPR“. We provide the following additional rights with respect to our collection, use, disclosure, or other processing of your Personal Information where such rights apply to you, as required by GDPR or as otherwise appropriate in our reasonable discretion.

10.1     LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING

For purposes of the GDPR, the legal basis for the processing of your Personal Information is as follows:

  • Where we use your Personal Information in connection with our business operations, the processing is generally necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract. Where you are not our actual customer but a contact person of our customer, the legal basis our legitimate interest to communicate with our customer through you.
  • Where we use your Personal Information for internal administration, auditing, operation, and troubleshooting in connection with our business operations, the processing is generally based on our legitimate interest to (i) operate and improve our business efficiently; (ii) to enforce any of our terms and conditions or policies; or (iii) to pursue available legal remedies or defend legal claims. We may also ask for your consent to obtain additional information, in particular in connection with the operation of our Website and the use of Cookies.
  • For the use of your Personal Information to provide you with information about our business operations and the Service, the legal basis is generally our legitimate interest to promote our business. Notwithstanding, if you request more concrete information, the processing may also be necessary to take steps prior to entering into a contract. For notices required by law, the processing of your Personal Information is necessary for compliance with such legal obligation.
  • The use of your Personal Information for safety and security purposes is generally based on our legitimate interest in ensuring said safety and security. In some situations, there may also be a legal obligation to implement such measures.
  • In other cases where we need to comply with a legal obligation, the processing is based on the necessity to comply with such obligation.
  • Where we use your Personal Information to communicate with you, the legal basis will be one of the above depending on the purpose of such communication.
  • Where we seek your consent for other purposes, the legal basis is, naturally, consent.

 

Where we have a legal basis to use your Personal Information without consent (as we have described above), this Privacy Policy fulfils our duty to process Personal Information fairly and lawfully and in a manner that you would expect given the nature of our relationship with you, by giving you appropriate notice and explanation of the way in which your Personal Information will be used.

Where consent is required for our use of your Personal Information as described above, we will request your consent.

For other Third Countries, we will take steps to protect your privacy and fundamental rights in accordance the GDPR, and arrange for additional safeguards. Such safeguards will typically be based on a contract that binds the recipient in the Third Country to adhere to data protection standards similar to those under the GDPR. We will usually rely on the standard contractual clauses pre-approved by the European Commission or on other clauses approved by a competent data protection authority. If available, we may also rely on so-called binding corporate rules of the recipient approved by a competent data protection authority. These safeguards will generally include you as a third-party beneficiary, allowing you to enforce the data protection standards directly against the recipient. In order to obtain a copy of the safeguards used for a recipient, you may contact us using the contact information provided in Section 17 (Contacting Us).

10.3     YOUR GDPR RIGHTS
