1. INFORMATION COLLECTION PRACTICES

 

1.1. General. 
When you visit Wansview websites and use Wansview mobile applications without registering, you can browse without submitting personal information about yourself. If you register for an account within or to access a WansviewServices, we will collect some personally identifiable information from you, including your username, email address, and hashed version of the password you select. When you interact with the Wansview Services, we also receive and store certain additional types of information which, in general, do not directly identify you. For example, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device including your IP address, browser type and language, referring/exit pages and URLs, device type, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, cookie information, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time. This Section of the Policy outlines the various ways that information is collected from Wansview Services. Please fully review this Policy before you use the Wansview Services or submit information to us.

 

1.2. Information that You Provide. 
(a) Registration and Login. 
Certain Wansview Services require you to register for an account and/or log in using credentials. You can register for an account from our account registration system or a third-party site or service such as Facebook (“Account”). When you register for an Account you may be asked to provide some personally identifiable information, such as your email address, phone number, camera SN code and a username and password that you select. When you are asked to create an Account using your credentials from a third-party site or service, you will be asked for your username, password, and other information to verify that you have an account with the third-party site or service. When you provide credentials for a third-party site or service, we may use those credentials to obtain information about you from that third party. See Section 1.4 (Information from Other Sources) and 3.5 (Social Sites) for more information. When you register an Account and log in to a Wansview Services you must provide your current, complete, and accurate information. It is your responsibility to keep your information up to date. We are not responsible for any problems, interruptions in access, or liability that may arise if you do not give us complete and accurate information or if you fail to update your information so that it is current.

 

 (b) Product Set Up.
 In order to use certain products such as our camera products, you will need to associate the product with your Account following the directions provided with the product. When you associate a product with your Account you will need to provide Wi-Fi network information (this may include username and password) to Wansview mobile applications (“Wansview App” or “Wansview Apps”). The Wansview App will send the information to the product by using the QR code and the product will use the information to connect to the Wi-Fi network. Once a product is associated with your Account it will remain associated until you unbind the product from your Account or terminate your Account. The Wi-Fi network user name and password may be saved in your Wansview Apps or your Wansview products but it will not be sent to Wansview services or Wansview.

 

 (c) Correspondence. 
If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, about your use of the WansviewServices, we may save the information in a profile specific to you.

1.3. Automatically Collected Information. 
We will collect some information about you and any product or device you use to access or use the Wansview Services automatically using a variety of technologies. In general, automatically collected information about the use of Wansview Services does not directly identify you and the information may include your diagnostic log information, IP address, browser type and language, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, cookie information, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the actions performed in the Wansview App, the info(OS type/version, network, etc.) of the phone which the WansviewApp was installed, and the date and time. We collect this information for the purposes described in this Policy, including to better understand our customer base and to improve the quality of our Wansview Services. We do NOT collect information not related to the use of Wansview services.

 

(a) Video Transmission. 
The primary mode of transmission of video from our Wansview camera products to our WansviewApps is through a point-to-point direct connection. When encountering unreliable point-to-point network conditions, the Wansview camera product may opt to relay videos through our servers to the mobile app to achieve optimal viewing experience. In each scenario, both videos and the transmission channel are securely encrypted. The role of our servers is only to act as a relay agent, and they do not store video content transmitted to or through them in connection with our provision of WansviewServices.

 

(b) Activity Alert Video/Picture. 
This is an optional feature, and off by default, and user needs to manually activate this feature in the Wansview App before transmission happens. Turning this feature OFF will NOT affect the normal operations of WansviewCam and its Wansview App. If the user chooses to turn on this feature, a short video up to 10 seconds long and one or more pictures are encrypted individually and transferred to and stored on our servers when the camera has detected activity, provided that you have activated the “activity alerts” functionality within the Wansview App for Wansview camera product. If you don’t delete the videos stored on our servers, they shall be automatically deleted on a regular basis (typically seven days). However, we cannot ensure that residual copies do not survive elsewhere (e.g., in a cache or backup).

 

(c) Cookies. 
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer or mobile device. We and our third-party analytics provider use cookies to record information about your activities on the Wansview Services to “rememberyou when you return to the Wansview Services. Some cookies remain on your computer or device until you delete them. Others, like session ID cookies, expire when you close your browser. You may set your browser setting to attempt to reject cookies and you may still use the Wansview Services. See the section Do-Not-Track-Settingsbelow for more information on how the WansviewServices may respond to your browser settings. We do not control the use of cookies by third parties. See Section 4 (THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS) for more information and review the privacy policies of all third-party providers for more information on third-party cookies.

 

(d) Pixels (aka web beacons/web bugs/JavaScript). 
Pixels are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track how the web page is accessed. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, pixels are small graphics that are about the size of the period at the end of the sentence that is embedded invisibly on web pages or in HTML-based emails. Our third-party analytics provider uses information obtained from pixels to help us improve our Wansview Services. We do not control the use of pixels by third parties.

To the extent that we need to transfer personal information outside your jurisdiction, whether it is transferred to our affiliates (these may include communications, social media, technology, or cloud services) or to third-party service providers, we shall do so in accordance with the applicable laws. In particular, in order to ensure that all such transfers comply with applicable local data protection law, we will implement appropriate security safeguards. You will have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards taken by Wansview for this transfer of your personal information. For example, if you choose to use other third-party services available for this product or service (such as Amazon, Google, etc.), those third parties may be able to read information about you, information about you may also be transferred to a third-party server outside of your jurisdiction, and you agree to this kind of transfer.

As such, complying with applicable laws, we may transfer your personal data to any affiliates of the Wansview group worldwide when processing that information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. We may also transfer your personal data to our third party service providers, who may be located in a country or area outside the area of the European Economic Area (EEA).

 
Whenever Wansview shares personal data originating in the EEA with a third party which may or may not be a Wansview entity outside the EEA, we will do so on the basis of EU standard contractual clauses or any other safeguards provided for in the GDPR.

 

Wansview may use overseas facilities operated and controlled by Wansview App to process or back up your personal information. Wansview currently has data centers in the United States. These overseas jurisdictions may or may not have data protection laws similar to the data protection laws in your jurisdiction. You have understood that the risks under applicable data protection laws are different and wWe may transfer and store your personal information in one of our overseas facilities; however, this does not change our full commitment to protecting your personal information in compliance with this Privacy Policy.

We use Google, a third-party analytics provider, to collect information about Wansview Services usage and the users of the Wansview Services, including demographic and interest-level information.

We do not link the information we receive from Google with any of your personally identifiable information. For more information regarding Googles use of cookies, pixels, and collection and use of information, see the Google Privacy Policy.

 

5. ONLINE TRACKING AND YOUR CHOICES

 As discussed above, because we and our third-party service providers automatically collect Wansview Services usage information through the use of cookies, pixels and other tracking technologies (including as described in the “Automatically Collected Informationsection above, and otherwise in this Policy), your selection of the Do Not Trackoption provided by your browser may not have any effect on our automatically collected information. One way to attempt to opt outof the collection of any information through cookies and some (but not all) other tracking technology is to actively manage the settings on your browser to delete and disable cookies and other tracking/recording tools. However, getting a Do Not Tracksignal to work as you might want is difficult and may not be possible. Using browsers as an example, not all tracking technologies can be controlled by browsers; unique aspects of your browser might be recognizable even if you disable a tracking technology; not all settings will necessarily last or be effective; even if a setting is effective for one purpose data still may be collected for another; and even if one website observes a Do Not Tracksignal, that website usually will not be able to control other websites.

 

6. INFORMATION SECURITY MEASURES

 Keeping secure personal information that we collect is of great concern to us. While we have mechanisms in place to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. When you provide information to the Wansview Services, you do so at your own risk.
