intelliSPEC™ is a mobile application which operates as a component of the intelliSPEC™ DDMS (digital data management system). This DDMS system is licensed by PK Technology, LLC to end users and is used only for commercial purposes. Successful access to the intelliSPEC™ mobile application requires two things to occur. First, there must be a valid license agreement between PK Technology, LLC, as licensor, and their customer, the licensee. This customer will be the owner of an industrial facility where the DDMS system is used. Second, the licensee must assign valid credentials (user name and password) to the actual user of the Mobile application for logging into and using the intelliSPEC™ mobile application. This login may or may not be the email address of the user. Only then will the intelliSPEC™ application be functional.
The intelliSPEC™ application is a mobile data gathering application, and functions as part of a larger digital data management system. The system is primarily used in oil and gas industry, but can be used in other industries as well. PK Technology, LLC provides subscription licenses to its customers/licensees, who in turn provide the mobile application to their employees to capture inspection data via the application. The mobile device upon which the application resides is owned by the licensee and is used for the purpose of capturing inspection data associated with the licensee’s business. To the extent that the device may have applications other then intelliSPEC™ installed, intelliSPEC™ does not access any of those other applications or data created by these other application, including the personal information of the user.
The intelliSPEC™ mobile application does not collect any personally identifiable information of the user nor does it capture data for the purpose of identifying an individual. Within the application, the following data is captured which may potentially identify an individual and is limited to the following: (1) GPS location, (2) photographs, and (3) video recordings. Each of these data types is captured solely for the purpose of completing an inspection form, as configured by the licensee. GPS location is captured for the sole purpose of confirming the location of the device at the time of completing an inspection form, as it relates to the item being inspected. This is for quality control purposes. Photographs are captured as part of the inspection process to document the findings of the inspection. Any photograph(s) document the visual appearance of the item being inspected. Video recording(s) are captured as part of the inspection process to document the findings of the inspection. Any video recording(s) document the visual appearance of the item being inspected.
At no time is any of the data captured by the intelliSPEC™ application shared with or published to any party other than the licensee for any purpose. Because the mobile device upon which the intelliSPEC™ application is installed is owned by the licensee, PK Technology, LLC does not control the type of data that is captured. The capturing of digital data, using the intelliSPEC™ application, is part of the user’s employment duties with the licensee. The accessing, collecting and transmission of all data, including how it is used, stored and secured, is part of and controlled by a license agreement between PK Technology, LLC and the licensee. This may be done through a standard end user license agreement or through some other form of commercial licensing structure. In any case, all data privacy and security requirements are defined within the licensing agreement.
