This policy outlines the information we obtain, how we use that information, and what choices you have about the use of your information.
Effective Date: January 15, 2020
Your privacy is important to you and to us. We understand you might have questions about the types of personal information we obtain, how we use that information, and what choices you have about the use of your information. If so, we hope that this Privacy Statement will answer your questions (and, if it doesn’t, you can contact us here). By using our products or services, you agree to allow us to collect and use information as described in this Privacy Statement.
This Privacy Statement applies to information collected when you use the HomeAware sensor, HomeAware or Ubiety websites, or the HomeAware Application (“App”) powered by Ubiety Technologies Inc. (“we,” “us,” and “our” “products or services”). Please share the information in this Privacy Statement with your family members and guests whose information may be collected. Or, better yet, send them this link and they can review our Privacy Statement themselves.
This Privacy Statement does not apply to our HomeAware Beta Users, who have been provided with a separate Privacy Statement that applies only to them.
We collect information directly from you, for instance when you register with us and when you use our products or services. We also may collect information about you from other sources, such as from other HomeAware users who provide us with information about you when they use our products or services. We collect information about what happens within the HomeAware Protected Area (“Protected Area”) of a home. We also use common technologies, such as cookies, to collect information about our users, administer our website, and analyze trends about how our products or services are used.
The information we collect includes:
HomeAware is intended for personal household use. Data protection and privacy laws in your state may impose certain responsibilities on you and your use of HomeAware. You (not HomeAware) are responsible for ensuring that you comply with any applicable laws when you use HomeAware. For example you may need to display a notice that alerts visitors to your home that you are using HomeAware and to obtain their explicit consent.
The HomeAware sensor is intended for use only in the United States of America, and all of our information is stored in the United States. We use encryption and other appropriate, industry-standard security controls. We limit access to your personal information within our company to only those with jobs requiring such access, and train our employees on the importance of privacy and security. You can also help protect your information by keeping your mobile device secure, choosing a strong password and changing your password often, not sharing your username or password with anyone, and avoiding unknown or untrusted WiFi networks.
We use the information we collect to:
We also may use the personal information we collect about you in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection and obtain your consent if required by applicable law.
We do not share personal information for any commercial or marketing purpose unrelated to the activation and delivery of our products or services without asking you first. And we never rent or sell our customer lists. We may share your information with:
We may share non-personal information in an aggregated, anonymized form for various purposes, including to raise awareness about crime trends.
We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a merger, acquisition, joint venture, reorganization, divestiture, dissolution or liquidation).
We offer you certain choices in connection with the personal information we obtain about you:
Nevada law grants its residents the right to opt out of the sale of their personally identifiable information. Although we do not currently sell this information, and have no plans to do so, you can still opt out of any future sales of information by contacting us here.
California law grants its residents certain rights, including in some instances the right to know what categories of information and specific information has been collected about them, the right to access and obtain that information, the right to request that information be updated or corrected, and the right to request that certain information be deleted. We will make reasonable efforts to honor these requests – regardless of where you live – although we may not be able to delete information that is necessary to provide our goods and services, detect security incidents, or for other business or legal purposes. Please contact us using one of the methods below to exercise any of your privacy rights. Please note that we must take reasonable steps to verify your identity before responding to such requests. We will not discriminate against you for invoking any of your privacy rights.
As is discussed in more detail above, we collect the following categories of "personal information" as defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act: (1) identifiers; (2) commercial information; (3) internet or other electronic network activity information; (4) geolocation data; (5) audio electronic and visual information; (6) professional or employment information (if you seek employment with us); and (7) inferences drawn from this information. We use this information for the following “business purposes,” as defined by the CCPA: (1) auditing; (2) detecting security incidents, protecting against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, and prosecuting those responsible; (3) debugging to identify and repair errors; (4) performing services on behalf of the business; and (5) undertaking internal research for technological development and demonstration.
We do not knowingly allow other parties to collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third-party web sites when you use our websites and services.
Because the providers of “do not track” and similar signals do not yet operate according to common, industry-accepted standards, we currently do not respond to those signals. For more information on "Do Not Track", please visit www.allaboutdnt.com.
Our products and services are intended for use by adults. Our products and services are not directed to children, and we do not knowingly collect or store personal information from children under the age of 13.
This Privacy Statement may be updated periodically and without prior notice to reflect changes in our personal information practices. We will post a notice on our website and App to notify you of material changes and will indicate at the top of the notice when it was last updated.
If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions related to our privacy practices, or would like us to update information we have about you or exercise any other privacy rights, you may email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
