This information is used to personalize your experience – for example, to tell you which device is triggering a notification.

Environmental data from the camera’s sensors: We collect data from several sensors built into HomeLinkingSmart Light. These sensors collect data such as ambient light. By recording this information, HomeLinkingSmart Light can know, for instance, whether it’s dark and it should turn on night vision.

This may include capturing and emailing to you portions of this data as part of a notification or analyzing the data to identify motion or other events. We may process information from your HomeLinking Smart Light so that we can send you alerts when something happens.

Data protection and privacy laws in your country may impose certain responsibilities on you and your use of HomeLinkingSmart Light. You (not HomeLinking) are responsible for ensuring that you comply with any applicable laws when you use HomeLinkingSmart Light. For example, you may need to display a notice that alerts visitors to your home that you are using HomeLinking Smart Light. Note in particular that recording and sharing clips that involve other people may affect their privacy and data protection rights.

What additional information does HomeLinking collect and store when a user connects a HomeLinking Product to the Internet or creates an account?

To connect your HomeLinkingProduct to our Services, or to access your HomeLinking Product over the Internet from a computer, a smart phone or a tablet, you will need to connect it to your Wi-Fi network. During setup, the HomeLinking Product will ask for your Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password to connect to the Internet. It will save this information on the device, along with your IP address, so that you can access it and control it from your computer, smart phone or tablet, and so that it can communicate with HomeLinkingservers and download software updates.

Once connected to your Wi-Fi network, your HomeLinking Product regularly sends the data described in this Privacy Statement (excluding your Wi-Fi password) to HomeLinkingto provide you with the Services.

Once connected to your Wi-Fi network, your HomeLinking Product regularly sends the data described in this Privacy Statement (excluding your Wi-Fi password) to HomeLinkingto provide you with the Services.

How does HomeLinking use the information it collects?

We may also use this information in an aggregated, non-identified form for research purposes and to help us make sales, marketing, and business decisions. For example, we use aggregated user information about the number of active thermostat users in a particular state to help us decide what energy companies might be good partners.

We may use the information we have about you – including information about your interests, actions and connections – to select and personalise ads, offers and other sponsored content that we show you. Learn more about how we select and personalise ads, and your choices over the data we use to select ads and other sponsored content for you in the settings.

We may use service providers to perform some of these functions. Those service providers are restricted from sharing your information for any other purpose.

We may use the information we have to develop, test and improve our Products, including by conducting surveys and research, and testing and troubleshooting new products and features.

We use industry-standard methods to keep this information safe and secure while it is transmitted over your home network and through the Internet to our servers. Depending on your location and type of data, HomeLinking may process your personal information on servers that are not in your home country.

We use the information that we have to send you marketing communications, communicate with you about our Products and let you know about our Policies and Terms. We also use your information to respond to you when you contact us.

In what circumstances does HomeLinking share my information?

Under no circumstance do we share personal information for any commercial or marketing purpose unrelated to the delivery of HomeLinking Products and services without asking you first. Period. We do not rent or sell our customer lists.

The following are the limited situations where we may share personal information:

1. With your explicit consent: We may share personal information when we have your consent.

One example of this would be if you sign up for programs offered by our partners (e.g., energy or insurance companies). If you do this, we may share certain information with the partner. This could include things like your enrollment information and the activation status of your device. Similarly, when you connect third-party devices and services to your HomeLinking Products through the Works with HomeLinking program, you are shown information about any proposed exchange of data. Your explicit consent is required to allow these exchanges on your behalf and you can change your mind at any time.

2. With your explicit consent: We may share personal information when we have your consent.

These technicians (as well as HomeLinkingemployees) can access certain information about you or your account in line with this work but these technicians are not allowed to use this data for non-HomeLinkingpurposes. We also have strict policies and technical barriers in place to prevent unauthorized employee access to video data.

3. As part of business transitions: Upon the sale or transfer of the company and/or all or part of its assets, your personal information may be among the items sold or transferred.

We will request a purchaser to treat our data under the privacy statement in place at the time of its collection.

4. For legal reasons: We may provide information to a third party if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so for legal reasons.

For example, to respond to legal process, or comply with state and federal laws (or the applicable laws of foreign countries other than the United States).

We may share non-personal information (for example, aggregated or anonymized customer data) publicly and with our partners. For example, we may publish trends about energy use or elevated carbon monoxide levels in the home. This information may also be shared with other users to help them better understand their energy usage compared to others in the HomeLinkingcommunity, raise awareness about safety issues, or help us generally improve our system. We may also share non-personal information with our partners, for example, if they are interested in providing demand-response services or other incentive programs. We take steps to keep this non-personal information from being associated with you and we require our partners to do the same.

Your personal information may be collected, processed and stored by HomeLinkingor its service providers in the United States and other countries where our servers reside. As a result, your personal information may be subject to legal requirements, including lawful requirements to disclose personal information to government authorities, in those jurisdictions.

If you select an outside party for the purchase, installation, or service of your HomeLinkingdevice and share your personal information, we cannot control the collection, storage or sharing of information collected by that party. For example, if you buy a HomeLinkingSmart Light from a retailer, the retailer may collect personal information as part of the transaction. Or the party that installed the device may retain information that you provided to them to assist them in servicing the device if needed. Always check the privacy policies for any company that collects your personal information.

How long does HomeLinkingsave my personal information and how can I delete it?

HomeLinkinggenerally stores your personal information on HomeLinking’s servers until you delete or edit it, or for as long as you remain a HomeLinkingcustomer in order to provide you with HomeLinkingProducts.

As described above, some information is processed and stored directly on the HomeLinkingdevice. All personal information is encrypted as it is transmitted to HomeLinkingand cannot easily be accessed.

You can delete the information on the HomeLinkingdevice by resetting it to the defaults.

You can access, amend or delete your personal information from HomeLinking’s servers through the controls in your account. Because of the way we maintain certain Services, after your information is deleted, backup copies may linger for some time before they are deleted, and we may retain certain data for a longer period of time if we are required to do so for legal reasons.

Please note that this Privacy Statement may change from time to time. We will provide notice of any changes on the website or by contacting you.
