Percolata Corporation (“Percolata,” “we” or “us”) is committed to protecting your privacy. This
applies to our website and our retail scheduling management tools (collectively, “our Service”).
By accessing or using our Service, you signify that you have read, understood and agree to our
collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy
Policy and Terms of Service.
“You” or “Your” means a user of the Service, which could refer to an individual, an employer, an employee associated with an employer account, or any other authorized user of the Service.
1. Information We Collect and Use
We collect personal information from our users in a variety of ways, including:
A. Information you provide
We may collect and store personal information you register for our Service or provide to us in some other manner. For example, when you register with the Service, we collect your name, email address, password, contact information and employment information. If you are an employer, we also collect information about your business, payment information and any information you provide about your employees, including your employees’ contact information and pay-scale. We may also collect any communications between you and Percolata, any information you provide if you take part in any interactive features of the Service, and any other information you provide to us.
B. Data collected through the use of the Service After you set up your account, we collect information about how you use the Service and about your actions on the Service, including your work schedule, your availability, your time records, your messages to others on the Service and comments you make on the Service forums or blog posts.
C. Information we receive from third parties From time to time, we may receive information about you from third parties, such as identity verification, payroll vendors and other information. We may also collect information about you that is publicly available.
We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service, as well as to communicate directly with you. We may compile analytics and share performance data on a de-identified or aggregate basis. We may send you email communications that contain information about our products or Service, or information about third parties’ products or services we think you may enjoy. We may also send you Service-related emails or messages (e.g., account verification, messages and schedules, change or updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices).
Our data collection in relation to our Products and Services is confined to information collected as a result of a business relationship with the customer and the number of individuals that enter and dwell within a customer’s retail store location. By using the Website or Percolata Products and Services, you consent to the collection and use of such information. Percolata does not collect or use any personal information such as name, e-mail address, or phone number when users visit www.percolata.com without consent or as expressly provided by the user. Our technology does not record or gather any administrative or financial data of customers or consumers. Our sensors do not record any point-of-sale data. Percolata uses a combination of Computer vision, Wi-Fi and Audio analysis to measure volume, speed, direction and flow of pedestrian traffic inside and outside the store. Computer vision looks at an individual as an object crossing a threshold to determine speed, direction and count. In enhanced features, we use facial detection which is different from facial recognition to determine engagement. Identity of individuals remains anonymous.
We analyze such data collected through our sensors and aggregate it into reports for our clients. The reports are used by our retail clients to improve store layouts, determine timing for promotions and sales, measure the effect of advertising, and set staffing levels and store hours. Their use of such data is solely governed by the retailer’s privacy policies and practices, and our customers may direct us to share data we collect with third-party service providers acting on their behalf. This may include vendors who provide services for customer relationship management (CRM), marketing program management, business intelligence and analytics, workforce management, and loss prevention.
You also represent to us that you have any and all authorizations necessary to use these Percolata Products and Services including any information collected pursuant to using Percolata Products and Services.
By using Percolata products and services, you acknowledge, consent and agree that Percolata may collect, process, and use the data collected through our technology & any information that you provide to us and that such information shall only be used by Percolata or third parties acting under the direction of Percolata, pursuant to confidentiality agreements, to develop, tune, enhance, and improve Percolata services and products. Percolata will not use the contents of any communications provided to us through your use of Percolata Products for any purpose except as set forth in this Policy.
Percolata collects and uses information from you for the purpose of marketing, training our models, scheduling employees, and analyzing data.
