StateOS – a platform for the mediation of personal notifications and advertisements (services), where the application intended for users is available in App Store and Google Play environments.
Service – electronic notification or advertising
Notification – information by which the service provider wishes to keep the user informed and prompt further activities, if necessary. Generally, it is a situation, where the notification is related to a product or service already being consumed by the user and as such serves primarily the interests of the user (for example, A loyalty card in your name has been found ..., A new medical prescription has been issued to you ...).
Advertisement – information by which the service provider wishes to introduce new products and services to the user, with the purpose of gaining new clients and consumption, and as such serves primarily the interests of the service provider (for example, Dear client, we would like to inform you that now we also offer the TV service in addition to the internet service..., We have opened a new store at the address ...).
Application – an interface designed for the user for access and consumption of services mediated on the StateOS platform.
User account – user’s personal membership and related information entered in the StateOS database.
Mobiil-ID / Smart-ID – electronic identification solution for secure identification of the user (further information available at: https://www.id.ee).
X-Road – freeware technology for secure data exchange between various information systems (https://x-road.global).
Administrator - Stateos OÜ, an organisation who owns and administers the StateOS platform (Estonian commercial registry code: 14917624), address: Keevise 10, Tallinn, Estonia; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org and website: www.stateos.com.
Using the StateOS application is based on a non-exclusive license issued by Stateos OÜ. The non-exclusive license is valid for an unspecified term and is free for users. In case of deficiencies in the software, the administrator shall eliminate these as soon as possible, but it should be taken into account that sometimes technical failures may occur in the application and the administrator cannot guarantee perpetual, endless and faultless functioning of the application. The administrator shall also not be liable for losses incurred through the non-functioning of the StateOS application or if it cannot be used in a desired way. If the right of a user to use the application is cancelled, the respective non-exclusive license shall also become void.
Services are mediated by the principle that the services of all existing and future service providers are automatically open to all users and all service providers can offer their services to all users. Through the application, users have a possibility to withdraw from one or more services of a specific service provider and as a result, the service provider can no longer offer the service or services to the specific user. For example, a user unsubscribes from the advertisements of a specific service provider, but keeps the notification option. Users can change their decisions repeatedly via the application.
For the authentication of users, the administrator accepts electronic means of identification with a high security level (Mobiil-ID, Smart-ID) or authentication solutions created in StateOS on the basis of these.
The log of user authentication and authorisation is stored at least three (3) years. The administrator shall have the right to extend the storage period of the authentication and authorisation log.
Using the StateOS and its services are generally free for the user, excluding those for which the fee has been specified separately or established by legislation. The payable further functions of the StateOS solution are published by the administrator in a price list or directly in the course of using the service.
The data exchange between the State OS platform and the information systems of service providers, necessary for the provision of service, occurs through data exchange layers that are based on the X-Road technology.
The State OS application is available in multiple languages, the language of the service content is decided by the service provider.
The StateOS solution is hosted, using the services of zone.ee and digitalocean.com hosting service providers.
