KROWDX SAFE ENTRY PRIVACY POLICY

Updated May 5, 2022

 

What Does Our Privacy Policy Include? 

KrowdX Inc. (“KrowdX”, “our”, “we”, “us”) takes data privacy seriously and we are committed to keeping your personal information safe. We created this Privacy Policy to explain the measures we take to protect your personal information, your rights to your personal information, and to be transparent with how we use and disclose the information you provide to us. If you do not understand any aspects of our Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact us as described at the end of this Privacy Policy. We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time by posting a new version online. 

 

Our Privacy Policy focuses on the information we collect and use when we provide the KrowdX Safe Entry Mobile Application (the “KrowdX Safe Entry App”) and related products, applications, and services to assist business customers test, manage, and monitor COVID-19 test results within their organization and to enable individual consumers to undergo and receive results from a COVID19 test (collectively, the “Services”) as well as information we collect directly through our website and other interactions. The KrowdX Safe Entry App is used to provide customers with test instructions and to display the results obtained from the KrowdX Safe Entry Testing System used with a Nostics Test Cartridge and a Nostics Sample Wand for collection of the test specimen (collectively called a “Safe Entry Test”). If you are an individual consumer, you must download and install the KrowdX Safe Entry App onto a compatible mobile smart device that you own or are authorized to use in order to receive your COVID-19 test results, and you must connect your mobile device to the KrowdX Safe Entry Test via a secure data connection. 

 

Our Policy focuses on Personal Information – information that is about an identifiable individual, such as contact information (e.g., name, client number, employee number), Safe Entry information, including COVID-19 test results, and any other information that is or can be used alone or in combination with other information to identify an individual (collectively, “Personal Information”). When we use the term “De-Identified Information”, we mean information that has been aggregated, de-identified and/or anonymized such that it is no longer identifiable. Please read this policy carefully to understand how we treat personal information. 

 

What Information Do We Collect? 

We collect three types of information: (1) information we receive directly from our business customers in order to provide the KrowdX Safe Entry App and Services on their behalf, including information about authorized users of the Services and information about test subjects, (2) information that we collect through use of the KrowdX Safe Entry App, including information about test subjects that we collect directly from individual consumers, and (3) information we collect through our website and other interactions. 

 

Our business customers are organizations across various sectors and industries. We rely on our business customers to comply with applicable privacy laws when collecting, using, or disclosing personal information of employees or other individuals through the Services, including by providing appropriate privacy notices and obtaining appropriate consent to collect, use, and disclose personal information through KrowdX Safe Entry App and Services.
