One of the key functions of User Accounts is the ability to enter Project Data to perform project-specific stormwater or other calculations. Due to the sensitive nature of Project Data, we include the following additional terms and conditions.
Project Data shall be considered Usage Data, and the terms and conditions above apply. Specifically, we will not disclose the user's Project Data to third parties, except as authorized and as required by law.
User authorizes the Data Controller and the Purple-Roof Technical Support Team to view all Project Data. The Technical Support Team is a small team of specialists in stormwater calculations and other calculations related to the Purple-Roof concept. The User may at any time request the contact information of Technical Support Team members. The Technical Support Team may contact the User to offer project-specific support, and the User may contact the Technical Support Team for project-specific assistance.
