Privacy Policy

Last Updated: March 30th, 2018



Any references to "NINES," "HiPOINT," "we," "our" or "us" refer to HiPOINT Technology Services Inc.

HiPOINT respects your privacy as a user of this site. This Privacy Policy explains what personal information we collect from you and how we use that information. This policy also details the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information as well as how you can access and update this information.

What services does the Privacy Policy cover?

This statement applies to all HiPOINT products including the NINES website (www.hipointnines.com), as well as all custom domains created for your building to take you to your NINES site. This Privacy Policy also all HiPOINT apps and software.

Customers and Users

Our "Customer" is typically a legal entity representing a building or property. Customers purchase or license one or more products or services that are part of the Platform.

You are a user of the Platform. The NINES, collects information from our Customers and users on behalf of our Customers. There are many types of users, and each one has a unique relationship to the information that we collect. Users can include our Customers' employees (building staff, maintenance personnel, managers, etc.), residents (tenants, owners, subtenants, guests, etc.), service providers (outside contractors, local businesses, etc.) and others. Each of these (and generally anyone who has a NINES username and password) is considered a "Registered User". Some users may not be Registered Users, such as a visitor to our public website.

Most Registered Users will be affiliated with one or more NINES Customers (i.e., your buildings). HiPOINT is the custodian of data on behalf of our Customers, with respect to much of the information we collect. Each Customer also determines its own policies regarding information collection, access, sharing and retention. Please contact the Customer if you have any questions regarding their privacy practices.

The Information we collect

The NINES, collects both personally identifiable information (such as your name or address) and anonymous information (such as your IP address). Most of this information is provided by our Customers or by you, when you use our Platform.

Some information is obtained through your use of our Platform, for example, when we receive error reports or use cookies (see below).

Finally, we receive some information from other Registered Users. An example would be when a Registered User submits or modifies the information and settings for various non-member 3rd parties, such as family members, roommates, or other people who are relevant to the building's management and who they wish to submit through The NINES (e.g. housekeepers, cleaners, caretakers). There may also be personally identifiable information submitted by our Customers about our Registered Users that Registered Users cannot access directly.

The types of information we collect depend on your level of access and engagement with The NINES and can include:

 Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. We utilize robust security measures to protect customer data from unauthorized access. Sensitive data is encrypted, and web site connections are protected using SSL with a minimum of 128-bit symmetric encryption and a 1024-bit authenticated key agreement (Look for the green bar in your browser to confirm).
