What kinds of information do we collect?

When becoming a user of Squeegee, the service involves the storage of data about a company or individual. This data can include personal information:

Basic personal information

Squeegee collects your contact information, such as your name and email address and country to authenticate your account and keep it.
We may also collect personal information such as phone number, location, taxation details and accounting and financial information directly from you when you use the service.
It is your choice what personal information you give us, but if you don’t supply some required information, we may not be able to provide you with the service.

Log Data

When you access the service by or through a mobile device, we may collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browser you use and other statistics ("Log Data"). This is in order to improve service and for troubleshooting to provide support within the service. It is used as part of aggregated data.

Payment information

Squeegee doesn’t store any payment information. It is held with our payment provider and can not be accessed by Squeegee staff.

Location information

Because of the location based services within Squeegee, on devices using the Squeegee app, we record your location. Without this, some of the services can not and will not work. Squeegee gives you the choice to enable or disable use of location.

Squeegee Cookie information

Squeegee utilises "cookies". A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer for record-keeping purposes. A cookie does not identify you personally or contain any other information about you but it does identify your computer.
We and some of our affiliates and third-party service providers may use a combination of “persistent cookies” (cookies that remain on your hard drive for an extended period of time) and “session ID cookies” (cookies that expire when you close your browser) on the website to, for example, track overall site usage, and track and report on your use and interaction with ad impressions and ad services.
You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie so that you will have an opportunity to either accept or reject it in each instance. However, you should note that refusing cookies may have a negative impact on the functionality and usability of the website.

We do not respond to or honour “Do Not Track” requests at this time.

Information belonging to others

As a user of Squeegee, you will also collect information from others, which is stored on your account. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are authorised to disclose that information to us. This means that you must take reasonable steps to ensure the individual concerned is aware of and/or consents to the various matters detailed in this Policy, including:

  • the fact that their personal information is being collected,
  • the purposes for which that information is being collected,
  • the intended recipients of that information,
  • the individual's right to obtain access to that information,
  • Squeegee’s identity,
  • and how to contact us.

This will shortly be made very easy for you, with the customer portal that will be released soon.
Where requested to do so by us, You must also assist Squeegee with any requests by the individual to access or update the personal information you have collected from them and entered into the service.

Where is my personal information stored and transferred?

Squeegee has servers in the UK, Europe and the US. The server data centres provide top level security. This includes:

  • 24/7 physical security guard services,
  • generator or fuel carrier redundancy
  • and access to the management network only through multi-factor authentication points with key-based authentication limited by role-based access control.
  • Data is transferred using Transport Layer Security. (TLS) is a protocol which provides privacy between communicating applications and their users, or between communicating services. When a server and client communicate, well-configured TLS ensures that no third party can eavesdrop or tamper with any message.

If You do not want your personal information to be transferred to a server located in the U.S  you should either not provide Squeegee with your personal information or request private hosting at an additional cost.

How is my information shared?

Squeegee will only disclose the personal information you have provided to us to other entities if it is necessary and appropriate to facilitate the purpose for which your personal information was collected in accordance with this policy, including the provision of the Service. 
Squeegee will not otherwise disclose and of your personal information to a third party unless you have provided your express consent.
