    Rights to Data
    In Principle - and in line with South African Law - Plug and Play Scada recognizes the property/ownership rights of devices (a.o. meters), hereafter reffered to as Ownership Rights, and defined hereunder as follows: That the Person has lawful possession of the device; or that the device is the Person's property; or that the device is installed at premises under the Person's lawful control and that he has lawful access to connect to and read the meter electronically; or that the Person has business or residential rights at the property where the service metered by the meter is consumed and that he has lawful access to connect to and read the meter electronically; or that the Person has been appointed the lawful agent of such a Person for the purposes of accessing the device.
    The DATA on (or read from) any specific meter belongs to the Person/-s with Ownership Rights to the device. Specifically for the time span in which he has/had such Property Rights to the device. This time span of Ownership also defines the time span of the logs recorded on the device that may be lawfully accessed by such a Person.
    Plug and Play Scada is a Public service, available on the public internet, with no restrictions as to who can register for and make use of our online service.
    Plug and Play Scada will enforce the unique serial numbers of meters on any specific Plug and Play Scada server, and restricts different users from adding meters with the same serial number.
    By configuring a device on Plug and Play Scada, a user declares that he has the rights to access that device in the way that he is configuring, and he appoints Plug and Play Scada as his Agent to read or interact with that device on his behalf.
    In the case where one user of Plug and Play Scada disputes the Ownership Rights of another user to a device, he can request the device to be transferred from the other user's Plug and Play Scada account to his Plug and Play Scada account. Each such a request carries a once off Transferral Request fee payable by the disputing party.
    If a user requests a device/meter to be transferred from another user's account to his/her account, and he has paid the Transferral Request fee, both users will be notified via email and requested to produce legal documentation to prove Ownership Rights of the device/meter. If it can be conclusively shown via legal documentation that the user requesting the transfer has more current Ownership Rights to the meter or device than the second user, the device will be transferred to the proper Owner's account, otherwise the device will not be transferred. Transferral Request fees are not refundable, and the decision of Plug and Play Scada is final. If the disputing party wants to appeal the case, he/she must initiate the process again from scratch,and pay another Transferral Request fee. The Transferral Request fee will increase with between 20% and 100% each time a dispute is lodged for the same meter by the same user.
    Users should take care to produce Legal documentation proving current Ownership Rights, as well as disproving Ownership rights by the opposing party. If a decision cannot be reached, because of seemingly equal Property Rights, the device/meter will NOT be transferred to the disputing party, and the Transferral Request fee will NOT be refunded.
    After notification of an Ownership dispute, both users will be given a 1 Business Day grace period to produce the Legal Documentation proof. Plug and Play Scada reserves the right to make a decision after 1 South African Business Day from when the notification email has been sent to both users. However the process may take longer depending on resource availability at the Plug and Play Scada back office/legal department.

    Plug and Play Scada only supports one Agent per device/meter at a time. If multiple users want access to the data of the same device/meter, it has to be shared with the additional user by the first Agent or one of his already configured user logins with the necessary rights.
    If an Owner of a device/meter wants to give another user access to his device/meter, he must give access to that user himself, or if he has employed an Agent already, and that Agent has not given the owner access to his own device/meter, he must either commission the Agent to give the other user access, or dispute the Ownership rights of the first Agent according to the above procedure.
