ServiceCRM is field service management software for trade contractors and home services businesses. It’s cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS). Field staff use the software via a native app for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, and office staff can access the ServiceCRM dashboard via web browser on their Mac or PC.
ServiceCRM is committed to maintaining the privacy of your personal information.
The primary purpose of this policy is to communicate to you how ServiceCRM deals with your personal information. It explains how we collect, use and disclose your personal information, as well as other information or data associated with you and your use of our services. It also informs you about rights and responsibilities you have regarding your personal information, in association with your use of our services.
We believe in informed consent at ServiceCRM. We therefore encourage you to read this policy carefully, to help you make an informed decision about sharing your information with us.
“You” & “Your”: “You” may be a visitor to one of our websites, or a new or existing user of our Service.

Our services are global and account data (including Your personal and other information) may be stored and processed in any country where we have operations or where we engage service providers, and we may transfer Your information to countries outside of Your country of residence, which may have data protection rules that are different to those of Your country. In these cases we will take measures to ensure that any such transfers, and Your information and account data, remain protected.
If You are located within the European Economic Area (EEA), your account data will be housed in data centres within the EEA.
