IridoTech was founded in 2005 in Los Angeles, CA. Since that time, the founders have invested a significant amount of time, effort and substantial financial resources building biometric tools for humans and dogs. The founders have built and employ a team of highly qualified professionals in the fields of Applied Mathematics, Optics, Electronics, Image Analyses, Expert Systems and other fields of Information Technology. IridoTech developed proprietary software for image acquisition, analysis, and management of biometric information.
The effort is spearheaded by Boris Gill who has earned his Ph.D. degree in 1987 in Applied Hydrodynamics and Aerodynamics and has been teaching the subject of Mathematical Modeling afterwards. He also studied the subject of System Automation and Applied Mathematics extensively, managed the Information Technology Laboratory at his University, and worked extensively since the early 90’s in the fields of digitization and recovery of images and their transformation into standardized formats, Electronic Document Management System (EDMS), Business Process Automation, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, etc. Boris has held some key management positions such as Senior Director of Operations and has been involved as executive sponsor on numerous customer-facing and R&D projects that resulted in multimillion dollar sales in the past.
The management team also includes Felix Lapidis who brings a wealth of experience in direct sales and marketing as a founder, owner, and manager of a successful commercial and consumer appliance repair business. Felix brings to IridoTech great interpersonal skills and experience in both corporate and retail consumer sales. He is heading the company’s Marketing and Operations divisions.

Some of the personal information that we collect about you will be “Personal Data”. This means information and data related to you and which may be used to identify you.

We use your Personal Data where this is required to provide our Services or parts thereof (including our website) to you and generally to fulfill our contractual obligations towards you.

We will not retain your Personal Data for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it was intended or initially collected, or as required under any contract with you or by applicable law. We will delete your Personal Data once you inform us that you will no longer be using our Services unless and to the extent we are required to retain your Personal Data for legitimate reasons (e.g. due to legal requirements or if we still need your Personal Data to process the contractual relationship with you, such as billing or accounting) or if a deletion of your Personal Data would only be possible with unreasonable efforts, in which case we will lock your Personal Data instead of a deletion. We will not collect an excessive amount of Personal Data about you or any information that is not relevant to the purposes it was collected for.

We protect the security of your Personal Data by:
- using encryption where appropriate;
- using password protection where appropriate; and
However, these measures do not release you from taking appropriate steps to keep your Personal Data safe and secure, in particular by avoiding obvious user ID’s or passwords, by changing your password regularly and by ensuring that you do not disclose your password(s) or grant any other person access to your user account and your Personal Data.
IridoTech does not keep biometric pictures either on the server or the mobile device. Identifiable biometric data is serialized in a way that can’t be transformed back into the original piece of data. Steps have been taken that render stolen biometric data unusable, such as encrypting the data.
