The information required by our dashboard and analytics services is mostly procurement spend, however this could at times include personal information such as employee names, individual vendor details, addresses etc.   This personal information is used and stored for the purpose of developing and presenting back analysis of data.  We can deliver the dashboard services without any personal information at the request of the customer and their acceptance that some functionality will be limited as a result.
