A “Device” is any computer used to access the fissara Services, including without limitation a desktop, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, or other consumer electronic device.

Unless otherwise stated, our SaaS Products and our Downloadable Products are treated the same for the purposes of this document.

By registering for or using fissara Services you consent to the collection, transfer, processing, storage, disclosure and other uses described in this Privacy Policy.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make any changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of this Privacy Policy. If we make any material changes, we will provide you with additional notice (such as by adding a notice on the fissara Services homepages, login screens, or by sending you an email notification). We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy whenever you use fissara Services to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy. 

If you disagree with any changes to this Privacy Policy, you will need to stop using fissara Services and deactivate your account(s), as outlined below.

Information You Provide to Us

The information and data collected by fissara is owned by and is the sole responsibility of the customer to ensure the data is correct and that consent has been agreed. 

Account and Profile Information: fissara collects information about you and your company as you register for an account, create or modify your profile, use, access, or interact with fissara (including but not limited to when you upload, download, collaborate on or share Content).

Information we collect includes:

  • Contact information such as name, email address, mailing address, and phone number
  • Profile information such as a username, profile photo, NI Number and job title
  • Important safety information such as Dates of medicals and medical notes concerning individual users
  • Location information – this is used for duty of care mapping and vicinity job allocation

You may provide this information directly when you enter it in fissara Services. In some cases, another user (such as a system administrator) may create an account on your behalf and may provide your information, including Personal Information (most commonly when your company requests that you use our products). 

If you are an employee of one of our customers and would no longer like us to process your information, please contact your employer. If you are providing information (including Personal Information) about someone else, you must have the authority to act for them and to consent to the collection and use of their Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Content: We collect and store Content that you create, input, submit, post, upload, transmit, store or display in the process of using fissara. Such Content includes any Personal Information or other sensitive information that you choose to include (“incidentally collected Personal Information”).

Information we collect from your use of fissara Services

Web Logs: As is true with most websites and services delivered over the Internet, we gather certain information and store it in log files when you interact with our fissara Products. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses as well as browser type, internet service provider, operating system, date/time stamp, information you search for, locale and, identification numbers associated with your Devices and system configuration information. Occasionally, we connect Personal Information to information gathered in our log files as necessary to improve fissara Services for individual customers. In such a case, we would treat the combined Information in accordance with this privacy policy.

Analytics Information from device downloads: We collect analytics information regarding the health of the application. When there is an issue, the user can specifically produce a log on the fissara device and send it to us. This data contains data collected on the device and is used to determine the cause of issues and helps us recover any data into your system, resolve any bugs and improve future stability.

Analytics Information Derived from Content: Analytics information also consists of data we collect as a result of running queries against Content across our user base for the purposes of generating Usage Data. “Usage Data” is aggregated data about a group or category of services, features or users that does not contain Personal Information. For example, we may query Content to determine the most common types of workflows that users use by searching for the most common workflow names.

Though we may happen upon sensitive or Personal Information as we compile Usage Data from Content across user instances, this is a byproduct of our efforts to understand broader patterns and trends. It is not a concerted effort by us to examine the Content of any particular customer.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies: fissara Services uses various technologies to collect information, such as cookies and web beacons. Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory. We use cookies to improve and customise fissara Services and your experience; to allow you to access and use fissara without re-entering your username or password. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all aspects of the system.

The data on your system is secure and not shared or copied.

Compiling aggregate analytics information: Because our Products and Downloadable Products are some of the most configurable in the market, we make extensive use of analytics information (including log and configuration data) to understand how our products are being configured and used, how they can be improved for the benefit of all of our users, and to develop new products and services.

Data Storage, Transfer and Security

fissara hosts data with hosting service providers in the United Kingdom. The servers on which Personal Information is stored are kept in a controlled environment. While we take reasonable efforts to guard your Personal Information, no security system is impenetrable and due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers. In addition, we cannot guarantee that any incidentally-collected Personal Information you choose to store in Websites or SaaS Products are maintained at levels of protection to meet specific needs or obligations you may have relating to that information.

Where data is transferred over the Internet as part of a Website or SaaS Product, the data is encrypted using the highest security standard TLS (HTTPS) 256-bit AES encryption.

Where Downloadable Products are used, responsibility of securing access to the data you store in the Downloadable Products rests with you and not fissara. We strongly recommend that administrators of Downloadable Products configure SSL to prevent interception of data transmitted over networks and to restrict access to the databases and other storage used to hold data.
