Privileged Account

Logging and GPS models incorporate a large data storage facility designed to offer at least one year (exact capacity is model dependent, see catalog for details) of usage log capacity. In some circumstances operators may wish to delete usage data from a usage logging compatible product

Users with a registered account can request their account be upgraded to a privileged account to enable the facility to delete the usage log.

A privileged account also allows users to edit the CALSafe settings.

Please contact your local Radiodetection office or Radiodetection approved distributor to upgrade to a privileged account.

You will need to provide the email address associated with your account and information to identify your position within your company. There is no charge for the upgrade.

You will receive an e-mail to your registered address to advise that your account has been upgraded.

"/>CAUTION:! Once an RD Manager Account is upgraded to enable usage log deletion and modify CALSafe settings, Radiodetection strongly recommend that care is taken to prevent unauthorized access to that account.
