Client Collected Data

First and foremost FiveBy will follow all security and data protection policies of each of our clients.  A client is identified by entering into a contractual agreement.

Additionally FiveBy has its own policy which is continuous.  If at any point during a client engagement it becomes necessary for us to engage with client propagated PII in order to complete our agreed terms of service we have measures in place which limit our exposure and liability.

If we are required by our clients to collect either PII or non-personal information we will do so while on Site with the client complying with their data security measures.  If any part of this data should be required to leave the clients’ Site, it will only do so on a Bitlocker encrypted machine which will also have password protection.

We require all of our client facing employees to regularly remove any client information including both PII and non-personal information.  We also practice a six month maximum document retention policy.

When we use the term “personal information” we mean information that directly identifies you, or allows someone to directly contact you.  Examples of personal information include your name, e-mail address, telephone number, or business contact information.

When we use the term “non-personal information” we mean information that does not directly identify you, or allow someone to directly contact you.
