WHAT TYPE OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We may collect two types of data and information from our Users.

The first type of information is un-identified and non-identifiable information pertaining to you, which may be made available or gathered via your use of the Services ("Non-personal Information"). We are not aware of the identity from which the Non-personal Information is collected. Non-personal Information which is collected may include your aggregated usage information and technical information transmitted by your device, including certain software and hardware information about your device (e.g., the device you use, the type of browser and operating system your device uses, language preference, access time and the website's domain name from which you linked to the Services, etc. ), in order to enhance the functionality of the Services. We may also collect information about your activity on the Services (e.g., the network behavior of any IoT device at your house, etc.).

The second type of information is individually identifiable information, namely information that identifies an individual or may with reasonable effort identify an individual ("Personal Information"). Such information may include:

  • Account Information: When you sign-up and register to the Services, you will be asked to provide us certain details about yourself. You may register to the Services through your social network account or directly through the Application or our website (if applicable).
  • Registering through social network account: When you register or sign-in to the Services via your social network account (e.g., Facebook), we will have access to basic information from your social network account, such as your full name, home address, email address, birthdate, profile picture, friends list, personal description, as well as any other information you made publicly available on such account or agreed to share with us. At all times, we will abide by the terms, conditions and restrictions of the social network platform.

  • Registering through the Application or our website (if applicable): When you register to the Services through the Application or our website, we may collect from you the following information: full name, email address, home address, phone number, as well as any other information you agreed to share with us.

  • Voluntarily Information: We may collect information which you provide us voluntarily. For instance, when you respond to communications from us, communicate with us via email or share additional information about yourself through your use of the Services. We may also collect the feedback, suggestions, complaints and reports which you send to us. Please note that we may also collect complaints about you from other Users, which may include your Personal Information.
  • Device Information: We may collect Personal Information from your device. Such information may include geolocation data, IP address, unique identifiers (e.g., MAC address and UUID ) as well as other information which relates to your activity through the Services.
  • For avoidance of doubt, if we combine Personal Information with Non-personal Information, the combined information will be treated as Personal Information as long as it remains combined.


    HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION

    We use and share Personal Information in the manners described in this Privacy Policy. In addition to the purposes listed above, the information we collect, which may include your Personal Information, is used for the following purposes :

    Our Privacy Policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you.
