At Epoch Solutions Group, your privacy, and the protection and security of your information, are extremely important to us. We want you to know what information we collect, and what we do with that information. If you are just visiting our website, there is no need to provide information about yourself. If, however, you are using any of Field Squared’s mobile applications or platforms, we do need to collect your personal information, but there are some options available to you, which this Policy will detail.
What We Collect
We collect and use the following information (“Account Data”) to provide the Services to you:
For every person You authorize to use the Services, a User account will be created where we collect information, including but not limited to their email address, password, phone number, and base location addresses—which may or may not be the home address of such individual Users. Additionally, an overarching customer account will be created for the company of record with Field Squared, where we collect information that includes, but is not limited to, the company’s address, email(s), phone number(s), and contact details (“Customer Account”).
All tasks, jobs, and/or work orders entered into the Company’s system is retained for the duration of Your Customer Account, including (a) all historical changes made to all Your jobs, documents, users, assets, and Your data; (b) customer identifying information recorded against jobs or in the Company’s customer management framework; (c) information about fixed and mobile assets out in the field; and (d) any and all data entered in customized forms and the structure of these forms (collectively “Account Data”).
Deleting Your Data
We retain the information you store on Our servers for as long as is required to provide the Services to You and Your organization. While You may have the ability to delete Account Data in Our system, such data is not permanently removed from Our servers until Our own internal house-keeping software deletes such data, which could take up to 90 days from the date You delete the Account Data. Please note that We may be required to retain Your Account Data or Customer Account to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes or enforce Our agreements.
As You drive around out in the field or arrive and depart at job or asset sites, We collect and store location history data. This allows the Company to provide many of the reports and features and provides a level of safety and accountability for Your organization. Nobody other than Your organization and the Company can see Your location data, but every authorized member of Your organization can see each other’s location data at all times.
EpochField collects location data to enable location tracking and storage, geolocation searches, geofencing, and general geographic data collection even when the app is closed or not in use. The application might also transmit location information securely via HTTPS protocols.
Who Your Data is Shared With, Disclosed, and Used
The Company uses the information that We collect to set up, administer and provide Epoch Solution Group Services.

These companies are authorized to use Your personal information in so far as is necessary to provide their services to Epoch Solution Group.
We collect and store documents and other User meta-data in order to provide the Services to You. We also aggregate anonymized User data and statistics. We may provide this same anonymized information to third parties in order to inform and provide better Services. We will never, however, sell any data We collect to advertisers.

Cross Workspace Requests
We allow two companies (each company has one Workspace) to enter into a data-sharing arrangement. Where such an arrangement has been explicitly set up between the two organizations, We will make the data of one organization visible to the other organization using mutually defined rules between the two companies and never otherwise.
To provide customer support, it may be necessary for Our internal staff to view Your data. We will ask the authorized representative for Your organization for permission before doing so. We will never view Your organization’s data without its permission.

How Your Privacy is Protected
The Company was built from the ground up with security in mind. We use industry standard AES 256-Bit encryption to protect Your data while it’s being transferred from Our servers to mobile applications out in the field and to desktop clients. Any data stored on mobile tablets and phones is also encrypted when stored offline on the device using the strongest encryption available. All logins to the system require an email address and password which must comply with our minimum password requirements. We never authorize the use of sharing accounts or passwords. If You receive such a notification and You did not make any changes to Your account, You must contact Us immediately.
Where Your Data is Housed
We are headquartered in the United States and, therefore, are subject to all governing state and federal laws of the United States. As such, Your consent to the use and disclosure of the information is in accordance with such laws as outlined in this Policy. Your information is stored in Amazon Web Services data centers located within the United States.
We reserve the right to modify this Privacy at Our sole discretion. When We post a revised policy to Our website, the updated Policy will be labeled with the updated, effective date. You are advised to review Our Policy from time to time. Your continued use of Our Services will constitute Your acceptance of such modified Policy.
If We are involved in a reorganization, merger, acquisition or sale of Our assets, Your Account Data may be transferred as part of that deal. We will notify you—for example via email to the subscription administrator’s account provided for Your organization—of any such deal and outline Your choices in that event.
