Scale Tec, Ltd., an Iowa corporation, (“Scale Tec”) is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Statement applies to our websites, mobile applications, and other digital products, including POINT and REAP (collectively the “Scale Tec Services”). This Statement describes the information that we collect, the purposes for which it is used, and your choices regarding our use of it. By using our Scale Tec Services, you consent to our data practices described in this Statement.
Scale Tec is a business to business company, and therefore, does not collect personal information of consumers. Any personal information that we collect about you is incidental to your use of our Scale Tec Services for commercial purposes. To the limited extent that we collect personal information about you, it can be divided into two categories, personally identifiable information and non-personal data. While different jurisdictions define these types of information differently, Scale Tec defines Personally identifiable information (“PII”) as any information that specifically identifies you as an individual. Non-personal data is information that does not identify you.
Personally Identifiable Information
You can visit our Scale Tec Services without providing us with any personally identifiable information. In order to request information about or use Scale Tec Services, however, we may need some of your PII. We collect, for example, name, email address, phone number, and mailing address when you request information about the Scale Tec Services, subscribe to or register to use any of the Scale Tec Services, or request customer support.
If you choose to provide personal, payment processing or business information, you consent to the transfer and storage of that information on third-party servers located in the United States. With respect to payment processing, any information you provide us will first be entered directly to the system of and stored by a PCI-compliant third-party merchant services company. Scale-Tec does not collect or store any payment processing information.
When you call us to process a payment for any of our products, we will enter the following PII directly into the system of the third-party merchant services company:
If you are a customer or acting on behalf a customer of Scale Tec, we may need some of your Personally Identifiable Information to provide you with the services for which you have contracted to receive Scale Tec Services, including a customer identification information such as name, address, phone numbers and email addresses, name of employer and employer contact information, job title, and farm or field location.
We may obtain information about you or your company from other sources. We may aggregate this information with PII and other information for the reasons outlined in this Statement.
In summary, you are not required to provide any of this Personally Identifiable Information, but if you do not, we may not be able to provide you the requested Scale Tec Service.
We also collect non-personal data that does not identify you, directly, including “automatically collected data,” “aggregated” or “anonymized” information that we collect to inform us how others use our Scale Tec Services. Non-personal data includes, (i) device software platform, operating system, type of Internet browser, and firmware; (ii) mobile phone carrier; (iii) web browsing patterns, including websites visited; (iv) geographical data such as zip code, area code, and other non-precise location information; and (v) the way in which you use the Scale Tec Services, including frequency and duration of usage. We also collect and store information about the Scale Tec Services you receive including information about how you use the Scale Tec Services in your business.

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions.
