COOKIES, CLEAR GIFs, AND USAGE DATA
Like most Services, we may track use of the Services so we can analyze usage patterns and improve our Services. The technologies we use to monitor Services activity may include cookies and clear GIFs, among others. A cookie is a small text file that may have a unique identifier, and resides and may be stored, among other places, on a user's computer, mobile device, and emails we send you. Through the use of a cookie, we may automatically collect information about your activity on the Services, such as the pages you visit, the links you click, the searches you conduct, and the date and time of your use of the Services. When you sign in to your account we may record your user ID and the name on your account in the cookie file on your computer or mobile device, as applicable. We also may record your password in this cookie file, if you indicated that you would like your password saved for automatic sign-in. For security purposes, we will encrypt any usernames, passwords, and other user member account-related data that we store in such cookies. We may allow third-party providers to serve cookies from the Services to allow them to assist us in various activities, such as analysis and research on the effectiveness of the Services, content, and potential advertising. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is not linked to any Personal Information collected by us. Cookies may be persistent or stored only during an individual session. The information that cookies collect includes the date and time of your visit, your registration information, session identification number and your navigational history and preferences.
Cookies offer you many conveniences:
You may delete or decline browser cookies on your computer by changing your browser settings. (Click "Help" in the toolbar of most browsers for instructions.) If you do so, some of the features of certain Services may not function properly.
In addition to cookies, we may use other technologies such as clear GIFs (a.k.a. web bugs, beacons, or tags) which are small graphic images placed on a web page, web-based document, or in an email message. Clear GIFs are invisible to the user because they are typically very small (only 1-by-1 pixel) and the same color as the background of the web page, document or email message. We do not use clear GIFs to collect Personal Information about you. However, we may use clear GIFs to capture statistical usage information for our Services or products and services offered through the Services. We may correlate this information to a user to personalize the user experience and for statistical analysis of user experiences on our Services.
We also maintain log files that contain IP addresses. In general, we may use log files to monitor traffic on our Services, to troubleshoot technical problems, and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. In the event of user abuse of our Services, however, we may block certain IP addresses or console or mobile device IDs, as applicable. If available, IP addresses and console or mobile device IDs may be used to personally identify you in order to enforce our Terms.
When you use our Services you are granting us the consent to track all of your activities on the Services without the need for further consent, approval, or notice.
We take the safeguarding of your Personal Information seriously. Much of the information and Personal Information that we hold about you will be stored electronically by us on a secure network. Some information and Personal Information we collect electronically and hold about you will be stored in paper files or hard copy for example, in purchase orders, sales confirmations and customer account creation forms. We employ a range of reasonable physical and electronic security measures to protect the security of the Information and Personal Information we hold and to prevent or reduce the risk of disclosure, modification, misuse, loss, and unauthorized access of such information or Personal Information. Any sensitive, Personal Information, such as credit card numbers, will be encrypted with Secure Socket Layer (SSL). If accessing the Site through your computer, while on a secure page, the lock icon in the address bar of your internet browser becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’.
While we strive to ensure the safety and security of your information, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. You should be aware of the many information security risks that exist today and take appropriate steps to help naak safeguard your information and Personal Information including keeping passwords confidential and maintaining up to date anti-malware (also known as anti-virus) protection on equipment used during any communication, registration, use, or login process of the Services.
THIRD PARTY SITES AND LINKS
WEB LOGS AND OTHER FORUMS
The Services may offer web logs, web postings, bulletin boards, chat rooms, newsgroups or other forums which permit users to interact online. Any Personal Information or other information you transmit or post online in such forums will be made public and naak cannot control nor is it responsible for the use any third party may make of such Personal Information or other information.
REMARKETING AND DIRECT MARKETING
We may use third party technologies to remarket our Services or products based on your behavior while using the Services. If you agree to receive promotional offers on our products, we will provide your name and email address to our partners so that they can send you such promotions.
Direct marketing is when we advertise or make an offer to you personally. We will only direct market to those who reasonably expect it. If you tell us you don’t want to receive direct marketing we’ll respect your wishes. Where we market to potential customers, we are happy to let them know how we got their information and will give them easy ways to opt out of direct marketing. For example, you can unsubscribe from direct marketing sent by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email you've been sent.
We do not knowingly or intentionally collect any Personal Information from anyone under the age of 18. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with Personal Information without their consent, he or she should contact us at email@example.com. If we become aware that a child under 18 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such Personal Information.
In the event naak goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of a portion of its assets, your information, including your Personal Information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
INTERNATIONAL DATA TRANSFERS
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
MODIFYING YOUR INFORMATION AND OPTING OUT
We take all reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Information we collect is accurate and up to date. You can request details of the Personal Information we hold about you for a small fee. You can also ask for corrections to be made or the full deletion (excepting certain legal reasons to retain). For example, if any of the information or Personal Information that you have provided to us has changed such as your contact details you may contact us to correct the information or Personal Information. Please provide to us any changes by accessing the Services or contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may log in to your account at any time to modify the information you provided when you created it. You may unsubscribe from any emails using the link provided in the email.
You can stop all collection of information (including Personal Information) by the Smart Hub connected to main electrical panel by opening up the Smart Hub and switching it to the off position, (we recommend a certified electrician do this for you to avoid any chance of injury caused by electric shock), and by the App by easily uninstalling the App. Should you turn off or uninstall the Smart Hub, naak will no longer be able to provide the Services you subscribed to. Prepaid subscriptions are non-refundable. You may use the standard uninstall processes as may be available as part of your mobile device or via the mobile App marketplace or network. You can also request to opt-out via email, at email@example.com, but you will be unable to continue using the App.
RESPONSE TO DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
We do not track our customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals. However, some third party sites and mobile applications do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites or mobile applications, your web browser may allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
CLOSING YOUR ACCOUNT
We retain your information and Personal Information as long as your account is open or as needed to provide you the Services. You can access, share, modify, and delete your Personal Information and have some choices in the settings of our Services regarding how your Personal Information is managed. There is also information and Personal Information that is retained even after you close your account. This might include as part of the Services where information and Personal Information was shared by you to other users, for us to comply with applicable law and regulatory requirements, maintain security, resolve disputes, enforce our Terms, and/or service your account (e.g. process your account closure request).
