Protection of Personal Information
The iStore Health Check software is designed to provide best-in-class issue detection with minimal access to end-users’ personal data.
The following information is gathered about a computer:
• Upon installation, a random ID is generated and used to identify status reports.
• An arbitrary “Group” is assigned by the subscriber, for use in sorting reports.
• The computer’s serial number is also used for sorting reports.
• The name of the computer, visible in:
◦ Sharing PreferencePane (Mac), System Control Panel (Windows), Hostname (Linux)
• The ‘short name’ of the user who last logged into the computer
In some cases, the email address associated with online backup systems will be reported. This can be disabled by a computer administrator, however the status of that online backup would not be reported. iStore Health Check does not track the following types of information:
• The agent does not track screen or keyboard activity
• The agent does not inspect browser history, or other similar user actions.
• The agent does not read inside user-created data (no pdf, png, doc, etc)
• The agent does not send raw logs, instead it only sends test results
• Computer’s physical location is not readily available*
In cases where a computer is considered stolen or missing, administrators can request a one-time notification of the reporting IP address. iStore Health Check is not a computer management system.
• The agent uses read-only commands to perform its duties.
• Issues are reported to the IT professional responsible for the computer.

Subscribers are welcome to contact iStore Health Check support with any additional questions. End-users should contact their IT professional.
