Update date: April 24, 2022


We are Rimot Inc. (“Rimot”, “we” or “us”). This Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use and disclose information about an identifiable individual (“Personal Information”) when you use our website, https://rimot.io (the “Site”), or our services or software (the “Service”).

When you use the Service, you are using one or more of the following services: 1) the commercial operation and maintenance of remote networks and facilities (“RimotRF Service”), 2) management of facilities operations and management relating to health risk identification and trend analysis (“RimotHEALTH Service”), or 3) the RimotHEALTH questionnaire, facial temperature measurement, and/or QR Code Proof of Vaccination (POV service (“RimotHEALTH Screening Service”).

We offer the RimotRF Service, and the RimotHEALTH Screening Service to our clients (“Clients”) as a service and to the extent that we handle Personal Information in connection with those services, we do so as a service provider. The Client (which organization may, for example, be an end-user’s employer, or a health care facility), is responsible for the proper configuration of the Service, including what information is collected, how it is used and how long it is retained. The Client is also responsible for obtaining any necessary consent and generally complying with all laws and regulations to which the Client is subject, including data privacy laws. De-identified data derived from Personal Information (or other information that may not be used to identify an individual) is not regulated by privacy laws, but this Privacy Policy explains how we may use such de-identified data to improve the Service and for research purposes.

PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE OR OUR SERVICE. We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of our Site visitors, and those who use our Service. By using the Site and/or Service, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information for the purposes indicated. More information on our privacy practices is set out in this Privacy Policy. For information on our Clients’ privacy practices, please refer to their privacy policy or privacy statement.

If you do not accept our privacy practices, then you should not continue to use either the Site or the Service. This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into and forms part of our Service Agreement and End User License Agreement.

If you have any questions about our privacy practices or this Privacy Policy, please contact our Privacy Officer at info@Rimot.io.

1. Collection of Personal Information

When you visit the Site or use our Service, we collect certain Personal Information from you, both directly and by automated means.

We also collect and use non-personal information (“Client Business Data”) on behalf of our Clients to provide technical services, which falls outside the scope of privacy regulations. This data may include operational data on remote site performance, weather observations, equipment logs and related information.

a. Directly collected information
We require certain Personal Information from Clients and end users in order to login, access and use the RimotRF Service and RimotHEALTH Screening Service (collectively referred to as the “Business Service”). For example, when you sign in to the Business Service, you are asked to provide your email address and a password. Depending on the services requested, we may ask you for contact information (such as your name and phone number), billing and payment information, or other information. When you are using the Business Services, we may also collect Personal Information from you through messages you send to our support or sales teams, or through your use of interactive tools.

Any time we collect Personal Information from you, we will advise you at or before the time of collection the purpose for the collection. If you decide not to provide certain information to us, or to withdraw your consent for our use of certain information, we will advise you of the effect that may have on our ability to provide the Business Service to you.

RimotHEALTH Screening Service
The RimotHEALTH Screening Service may be configured by Clients to collect and handle Personal Information. What Personal Information is collected, how it is used, with whom it is shared and for how long it is retained is under the control of the Client. The information collected through this Service is used to provide the RimotHEALTH Screening Service (specifically, screening of individuals for health matters using temperature readings), and more generally to improve the Service.

While the kinds of Personal Information collected and used by Clients will vary by Client and may evolve over time, generally information collected may include an end-user’s first and last name, responses to a Questionnaire, temperature readings, proof of vaccination (POV) verification (through scanning of a unique QR Code or otherwise), thermal facial images and facial maps, and information that may help an employer/other organization identify you for screening purposes.

Note that Rimot does not retain any facial images, and all such images are transitory records used to determine the accuracy of temperature readings and are purged from our system on a regular basis. Similarly, identifying information associated with any of the information collected through the RimotHEALTH Screening Service is deleted after 14 days, so that only non-identifying information (such as Questionnaire responses no longer tied to an individual user) remains available for our use in accordance with this Policy (as described in this Policy).

For the purposes of this Policy, a QR Code includes date of vaccine(s), first and last name of the individual, and location/jurisdiction where vaccine(s) were received. Proof of Vaccination (POV) is stored by Rimot as either a Valid or an Invalid POV (actual vaccination records are not stored) and is based on an individual’s vaccination status. Rimot does not collect or use any other personal information to confirm the identify of an end-user – this is instead under the control of the Client using the RimotHEALTH Screening Service.

A valid POV is when an individual has received at least two or more doses of any approved covid-19 vaccine. An Invalid POV is when an individual has received less than two doses of any of the approved covid-19 vaccines.
