Information We Collect When You Use PI VIZpack Custom Visuals

In order to use the premium features of PI VIZpack in Power BI, certain details are collected by our licensing server to authorize your eligibility. The following information may be sent to the server when a visual is rendered:

  • License Key – this is entered by the user, and if empty will enter free trial mode.
  • Fingerprint – When in free trial mode, a fingerprint of your environment is generated to confirm you have days remaining to continue your trial. The fingerprint cannot be reversed to gather your information but instead allows you to trial freely without providing PQ Systems with personal details such as your email address.
  • Operating System – An attempt is made to determine which operating system you are using.

When the license server receives a request for authorization of premium mode, the IP address of the user is recorded. 

Processing Your Data

PI VIZpack reads and processes data that is provided to them by Microsoft Power BI to transform it into a visual representation. The process of transformation is executed in the memory of your device. PI VIZpack does not store, send, and/or reuse your data for any other purpose than rendering the visualizations in the Power BI visuals.

Security of Your Data

PQ Systems is committed to protecting the data you share with us. PQ Systems uses a combination of industry-standard security technologies, procedures, and organizational measures to help protect your data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. PQ Systems supports online security using secure server technology.
