Information collected via technology
- Information collected by eero Devices
If you use eero Devices, they will collect Device Data. When you sync eero Device(s) with our Application(s), eero Device(s) will upload Device Data to our Application(s) and our servers. We use Device Data to allow the Products to operate and to provide support to you if you have a question or issue with the Products.

If you use our Services on your mobile device, including through our Application(s), we may collect your mobile device’s unique device ID number and manufacturer, MAC address, hostname, IP addresses, and how you use the Application(s). This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you. Examples of information that may be collected and used include how you use the Application(s) and information about the type of device you use. In addition, in the event our Application(s) crashes on your mobile device, we may receive information about your mobile device model software version and device carrier, which allows us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of our Application(s). This information is sent to us as aggregated information and is not traceable to any individual and cannot be used to identify an individual.

Your Service Provider. Certain eero consumers purchase or rent their eero Devices from third party service providers such as ISPs, telecommunications companies, home security system companies, or professional audio-visual or network system integrators (“Service Providers”). If you purchase or rent your eero Device from such a Service Provider, we may share your Device Data and Personal Data with the relevant Service Provider in order to enable the Service Provider to provide you with customer network support and service enhancements or improvements for the eero Device(s) and the services that they provide to you. If you no longer receive services from your Service Provider but have properly retained your eero Device(s) and intend to continue using your eero Device(s), please contact us at email@example.com to inform us so that we can disable the sharing of your Device Data with your former Service Provider. In addition, Service Provider may share Personal Data about you with eero to enable eero to provide you with the Services and service enhancements or improvements for the eero Device(s), and, if applicable, to allow Service Provider and eero to track and reconcile the accounting of any applicable subscription fees for the eero Plus service.
We may use marketing tools such as Facebook's Custom Audience Lookalike Audience program that enables us to display personalized ads to consumers with characteristics similar to those of our existing eero customers. To determine relevant characteristics of our existing customer base, we may process your email address and/or phone number through a “hashing” application that converts this information to a string of alphanumeric data that is then sent to Facebook to enable Facebook to identify other Facebook users with similar profile characteristics.
You may opt-out of future participation in our Facebook Custom Audience and Lookalike Audience program by sending an email, from the email address you are opting out of, to the email address provided in our contact information above. For your opt-out to be effective, you must: (i) place the following text in the subject line of the email - "Opting Out of Facebook Website Custom Audience Ads", and (ii) in the body of the email, include your name and email address. We will remove your name and email address from all of our future Facebook Custom Audience and Lookalike Audience datasets. In addition, you can use the Facebook advertiser preferences and settings available through Facebook’s account and privacy management features to hide any future ads from eero.

You may correct any of your Personal Data in your Account by editing your profile within your Account or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

We only keep Personal Data for as long as it is required for the reasons it was collected.
