About VSc

Description of Policy

The purpose of this document is to outline our privacy policy for all staff and customers using our products.

Information we collect and receive

1. Customer Data

Content and information submitted by users to the Services is referred to in this policy as "Customer Data.” As further explained below, Customer Data is controlled by the organization or other third party that created it (the "Customer”). Where VSc Solutions collects or processes Customer Data, it does so on behalf of the Customer. Here are some examples of Customer Data (but keep in mind they are only examples and there may be others): driver details (including license information), vehicle details (including license information), orders, routes, customer locations, GPS locations, and workflow data.

2. Other information

VSc Solutions may also collect and receive the following information:

  • Account creation information. Users provide information such as an email address and password to create an account.
  • Services usage information. This is information about how you are accessing and using the Services, which may include administrative and support communications with us and information about the app usage.
  • Contact information. With your permission, any contact information you choose to import is collected when using the Services.
  • Log data. When you use the Services our servers automatically record information that you capture within the app.
  • Device information. We may collect information about the device you are using the Services on, including what type of device it is, what operating system you are using, device settings, application IDs, unique device identifiers, and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you are using and its settings.
  • Geo-location information. Precise GPS location from mobile devices is collected only with your permission.
  • Services integrations. If, when using the Services, you integrate with a third party service, we will connect that service to ours. The third party provider of the integration may share certain information about your account with VSc Solutions.

How we use your information

We use your information to provide and improve the Services.

1. Customer Data

VSc Solutions may access and use Customer Data as reasonably necessary and in accordance with Customer’s instructions to (a) provide, maintain and improve the Services; (b) to prevent or address service, security, technical issues or at a Customer’s request in connection with customer support matters; (c) as set forth in our agreement with the Customer or as expressly permitted in writing by the Customer.

2. Other information

We use other kinds of information in providing the Services. Specifically:

  • To understand and improve our Services. We carry out research and analyse trends to better understand how users are using the Services and improve them.
  • To communicate with you by:
    • Responding to your requests. If you contact us with a problem or question, we will use your information to respond.
    • Sending emails and VSc Solutions messages. We may send you Service and administrative emails and messages. We may also contact you to inform you about changes in our Services, our Service offerings, and important Service related notices. These emails and messages are considered part of the Services and you may not opt-out of them. In addition, we sometimes send emails about new product features or other news about VSc Solutions. You can opt out of these at any time.
  • Communicating with you and marketing. We often need to contact you for invoicing, account management and similar reasons. We may also use your contact information for our own marketing or advertising purposes. You can opt out of these at any time.
  • Investigating and preventing bad stuff from happening. We work hard to keep the Services secure and to prevent abuse and fraud.

This policy is not intended to place any limits on what we do with data that is aggregated and/or de-identified so it is no longer associated with an identifiable user or Customer of the Services.

Your choices

1. Customer Data

Other Choices

In addition, the browser you use may provide you with the ability to control cookies or other types of local data storage. Your mobile device may provide you with choices around how and whether location or other data is collected and shared. VSc Solutions does not control these choices, or default settings, which are offered by makers of your browser or mobile device operating system.
