What information do we collect?
- Generally. We may collect information, including personal information, from you when you register on our Site, place an order, subscribe to our newsletter, respond to a survey, fill out a form, communicate with us or our customer service team, or use our Equipment, Sites or Service. Personal information includes personally identifiable information such as your name, residential address, e-mail address, phone or other contact information and information about your service subscription and payment information. When ordering or registering on our Sites, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number or credit card information. You may, however, visit our Sites without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information about yourself.
- Mobile Apps. We also may collect information, including personal information through our Software. Information collected includes your name, encrypted password, phone number, email address, IP address, geographic location, and environmental data (temperature and humidity) from your xmartO security system, and any encrypted video clips that you want to record. You authorize us and trusted third party service providers we work with to host and store such environmental data and video clips for the purpose of providing you the Service. All information collected from our Software is also encrypted, and transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Your password and recorded video clips are encrypted on your mobile device using a one-way encryption algorithm prior to collection. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. Video clips may be viewed only from a device that is authorized to access those video clips. We will not make your video clips that are transmitted through the Service publicly available.
- Commerce Information. We may occasionally offer you the ability to make a transaction or participate in a promotion or survey and you may elect to provide Commerce Information in connection with such offers. “Commerce Information” means information that enables a commerce partner to fulfill your order or your request to participate in a promotion or survey, which may include personal information (such as name and shipping address), demographic information (such as zip code, or age range), or attitudinal information. Participation in surveys or contests is completely voluntary.
- Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Icontrol also logs non-personally-identifiable information including IP address, profile information, aggregate user data, and browser type, from users and visitors to the Sites and Service.

If you provide Commerce Information in order to take advantage of a special offer or to purchase products and services from Icontrol, or third party advertisers or promoters, Icontrol may communicate your relevant Commerce Information and your interest in a specific offer or transaction to the commerce partner making the sale or sponsoring the promotion. In addition to fulfilling your request, that commerce partner may also use your Commerce Information to send you other information in which you might be interested consistent with its own privacy policies.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

Collection of Information by Third-Parties
We may implement third party buttons (such as Facebook “like” or “share” buttons) that may allow third parties to collect information about you through such third parties’ browser cookies, even when you do not interact with the button. Information collected through web beacons and buttons is collected directly by these third parties and Icontrol does not participate in that data transmission. Information collected by a third party in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies.
Icontrol may permit third party analytics providers, such Google Analytics and Crashalytics, to use technologies such as web beacons and cookies to collect and process certain non-personally identifiable information that helps us understand your usage of our Sites and Service.
