A note about children
We do not intentionally gather Personal Data from visitors who are under the age of 13 (and our Services are not directed at children). If a child under 13 submits Personal Data to eero and we learn that the Personal Data is the information of a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. If you believe that we might have any Personal Data from a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Types of Data we collect
“Personal Data” means (a) data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data, and may include (b) performance statistics, including network speeds, and other data (e.g., heat, CPU, memory, data transferred, packet information, MAC addresses, IP addresses), host names, headers, firmware data, clickstream, radio usage information, types of connected devices, and competing signals that are automatically collected when you use our Devices and Application(s) (“Device Data”), to the extent that such data is associated with or linked to data that allows someone to identify or contact you. “Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data; Anonymous Data does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons. We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data as described below.
We aim to ensure that any Personal Data we have collected is accurate, complete and current as required for the purposes for which the information is used. However, we require your assistance to help us. If we have Personal Data about you that is not accurate, please let us know at the contact information provided above.
Information you provide to us
We may collect Personal Data from you, such as your first name, last name, e-mail, city, province/state, and telephone number(s) when you register your Device(s) or create an account to log in to our Services (“Account”). If you tell us where you are (e.g., by allowing your mobile device to send us your location), we may store and use that information to improve our services. If you want to deactivate this feature, you can deactivate GPS on your mobile device or revoke access to GPS for the Application.
Our Application lets you store your Application preferences. We may associate these choices with your Account or the mobile device, and you can edit these preferences at any time in our Application.
When you order our Devices or Services on our Site, we, or our payment processors, will collect all information necessary to complete the transaction, including your name, phone number, credit card information, billing information and shipping information. This information may be shared with third parties who help process and fulfill your purchases.
If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply. When you participate in one of our surveys, we may collect additional profile information. We may also collect Personal Data at other points in our Site that state that Personal Data is being collected.
Information you provide to Facebook and other Social Networking Sites
Information collected via technology
- Information collected by our devices
If you use our Devices, our Devices will collect Device Data. When you sync our Device(s) with our Application(s), the Device(s) will upload Device Data to our Application(s).
- Information collected by our servers
To make our Site and Services more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.
- Log files
As is true of most websites and applications, our Devices, Site and Services will gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and Device Data. We use this information to provide the Services, analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Site or the Services again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests.
- Pixel Tags
In addition, we use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, web beacons, or web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, that are used to track online movements of web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in web pages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send e-mail messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user. We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to our users’ Personal Data.
- How we respond to do not track signals
We do not currently respond to “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that might enable consumers to opt out of tracking on our Site.
- Mobile Services
If you use our Services on your mobile device, including through our Application(s), we may collect your mobile devices’ unique device id number, 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.
