    Hi Kristin,

     

    Thank you for clarifying. I will need to review this info with my team, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. (That will likely be early next week, as I’m out of office on Monday).

     

    Thank you for your help.

     

    Have a good weekend!

    Good Morning,

    The specific GPS platform that was utilized during the time period which you requested records for was Networkfleet. To the best of our knowledge, the 7 day retention period was set by the vendor was not adjustable on our end.

     

    Thank you,

    Kristin

    Good afternoon Kristin,

     

    I’m following up on my previous message on 03/05.

     

    Can you please clarify what the name of the specific “GPS platform” is that’s been used?

     

    Additionally — can you please specify whether the 7 day retention period is something that you can control and can modify? Or, is it a “requirement” / “limitation” of the GPS platform that you use?

     

    Thank you!

    Hi Kristin,

     

    Thanks for your reply.

     

    Can you please clarify what the name of the specific “GPS platform” is that’s been used?

     

    Also — is the 7 day retention period something that you can control and can modify? Or, is it a “requirement” / “limitation” of the GPS platform that you use?

     

    Thank you for your help!

    Good Morning,
    Thank you for your inquiry. The GPS platform that was utilized during the requested time period retained information for a period of 7 days. After that time period, the system purged the GPS records. Because of that, we do not have records to send to you. Your request will now be considered closed.

     

    Thank you,
    Kristin
