By using the Services, you agree to allow us collect, store, and use Data as described below.
WHAT DATA DOES ENERGYWISE COLLECT?
When You Activate a Devices
You may be asked to download the Foobot mobile application, update or install the latest Devices software, and/or create a user account.
When You Create an Account
When you create a user account using the Site or other Services (your “Account”), we collect personally identifying information, which may include your name, company name, phone number, postal address, email address, other online account credentials (for example, your LinkedIn login information), primary language, and location in your house or building where the Devices will be used. Creating an Account allows you to use all available functions of the Service; however, you do not have to create an Account to use the Devices with limited functionality. The energy saving service requires that you create an account.
After You Have Created An Account
After you have created your Account and used the Services for a period of time, we may ask you to answer additional survey-style questions to help improve and customize your experience and help us deliver more comprehensive indoor air quality or energy information to you. For example, we may ask how many people live in the location where you use the Devices or how large the location is, among other things. When you answer these questions, we collect this Data and store it with your other Account information.
When You Connect the Devices to Your Account
Once you have created your Account, you will link your Devices to your Account or allow others to link it with their accounts. When the Devices is connected to your Account, environmental data collected through the sensors in your Devices is transferred to our servers. These sensors collect data such as readings of volatile organic compounds (“VOC”), particulate matter (“PM”), temperature, and humidity. They can also detect when the Devices is moved. Through data analytics, we then use this environmental Data to draw certain conclusions about the Devices’s environment. For example, by analyzing Data collected by the Devices, we may determine that the Devices was placed near an open window or that cleaning products were recently used in the space where the Devices is located. These are assumptions made based on an analysis of the Data collected and are not guaranteed to be an accurate representation of what actually occurred in the space where the Devices is located. The Devices may also transmit certain log data to your Account and to the Services, such as the time Data is transmitted and the IP address from which it is transmitted.
When Your Devices Encounters a Problem
While our goal is to ensure that your Devices is operating properly at all times, we understand that at times the Devices may encounter an issue transmitting information, connecting to the Services, or collecting environmental Data. To continually improve your experience, when the Devices encounters a problem, a report may automatically be sent to us so that we can help troubleshoot any problem you may encounter. This report may contain information about your Devices model, serial number, software version, and other technical information.
When You Contact Customer Service
Our customer service team is always here to help. When you contact customer service, we may collect personally identifying information (name, email address, IP address, Devices information, Account information), product information (Devices model, serial number, software version) and any other information you may provide.
