Does Nerdio Manager Store Customer Information?

Does Nerdio Manager Store Customer Information

Nerdio Manager is an Azure application that is installed into your (the MSP's) Azure subscription. As the end customer's managed service provider, you then create a Nerdio Manager account, allowing you to provision, manage, and optimize their IT environment in Azure. Nerdio Manager creates a service principal in your customer's Azure tenant when the Nerdio Manager account is first created, and makes Microsoft Graph API calls using that service principal to execute the tasks you initiate from the Nerdio Manager portal.

Nerdio staff does not have access to your install of Nerdio Manager, unless you specifically grant access. Consequently, the Nerdio staff does not have access to the customer's data. In addition, Nerdio Manager does not collect any customer data.

Your install of Nerdio Manager reports usage information to our licensing servers on a periodic basis. Specifically, we store the following information in our licensing servers about your Nerdio Manager install and about each of your Nerdio Manager accounts.

Your Nerdio Manager install:

  • License registration information you provided during the installation of Nerdio Manager: first name, last name, company, phone number, email address, distributor, and Azure tenant & subscription's name, ID and domain.

  • Email address of the user that last updated your Nerdio Manager install.

  • Initial version of Nerdio Manager that you installed.

  • Current version of Nerdio Manager.

  • Mailing address, if you enter the address on Settings page.

Your Nerdio Manager customer accounts:

  • Account name and ID.

  • Date and time account was created.

  • Azure tenant, subscription, and region of account.

  • Identity method of account (Entra ID, Entra Domain Services, or Active Directory).

  • Whether account has been tagged as an Internal Use account.

  • Status of account (active or in process of being provisioned).

  • AVD Workspaces name and ID.

  • Number of Host Pools, their names and IDs.
