Project > Confidential Data Access (Extended Privacy)

Within the HammerTech system it is possible to restrict and control access to a greater level of personnel data, with our 'extended privacy' option. Generally confidential access only controls personnel data relating to 'Medical' information via checklists.  The extended privacy option expands on this to include the following:

  • Contact Details (cell, email and phone)
  • Vehicle Details - where configured
  • Address
  • Emergency Contact - Name, Contact Phone Number
  • License - Photo/s + Unique Licence Numbers

Where they have been granted access, the user must provide a reason which is logged and is able to be reported on for auditing purposes. As a admin user of the system, you are able to control who on the project is provided with access to confidential information.

The 'extended privacy' is an opt in feature and is not turned on by default.  Clients are required to request the feature either via their account manager or via
