Privacy for eero Websites
Last updated February 28, 2020
This Privacy Notice for eero Websites describes information that eero LLC (“eero”) collects, uses, shares, and stores, including Personal Data (defined below). This notice focuses on information related to the operation of the public websites available at eero.com and eero.com sub-domains (each, a “Site”), including our online store.
eero has designed a home WiFi system, consisting of a combination of WiFi network hardware devices (“eero Device(s)”) and eero Device software that can be accessed via the eero mobile application (the “Application”) and online services that we provide to users of eero Devices and eero Application(s) (“Services”, and together with the eero Devices and the Application, the “Products”). We provide additional details about how we collect and use information from our Products in our Privacy Notice for Devices, Applications and Services.
Our Privacy Promise (as described in detail in this Privacy Notice):
We will be clear about the different types of information we collect and how we use them.
We will use world-class data security tools to keep your data safe and protect it from unauthorized access.
International data transfers: by accessing our Sites and providing us with data, you acknowledge and agree that your Personal Data may be collected, processed and stored by eero or its service providers in the United States and other countries where our or our service providers’ servers reside. Please be aware that the privacy protections and legal requirements, including the rights of authorities to access your personal information, in some of these countries may not be equivalent to those in your country. If you are accessing the Sites from the European Economic Area or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from United States law, you agree to the transfer of your Personal Data to the United States and other countries where eero operates.
Questions; contacting eero; reporting violations.

By submitting Personal Data through our Site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Notice, and you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
A note about children
This Site is intended for use by adults over the age of 18. We do not intentionally gather Personal Data from Site visitors who are minors (and our Services are not directed at minor children). If you’re under the age of 18, you may use this Site only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
Types of data we collect
“Personal Data” means 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 also include IP addresses, headers, firmware data, or clickstream data (collectively “Site 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, either in its original form or as the result of anonymization procedures that we perform on Personal Data, 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 create an account to purchase a Product from us on our Site (“Site Account”). When you order our Products 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 use our configuration recommendation tool (the “Quiz”), we will collect information you provide about the physical layout of your home and the identity of your internet service provider.
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 collected via technology
- 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 Site will gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, ISP, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and mobile device identifier or manufacturer 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 tell 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.
- 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. The only way to completely “opt out” of the collection of any information through cookies or other tracking technology is to actively manage the settings on your browser or mobile device to delete and disable cookies and other tracking/recording tools. (To learn more about cookies, clear GIFs/web beacons and related technologies, you may wish to visit https://cookiesandyou.com/).

In general, Personal Data you submit to us or that we collect via the Sites is used to respond to requests that you make, to aid us in serving you better, and to provide the Services to you. Examples of how we use your Personal Data include:
- Provide improved administration of our Site;
- Improve the quality of experience when you interact with our Site;
- Track your purchases of our Devices and Services;
- Tailor marketing of our Devices and Services to your interests;

Mailing list information
You may choose to submit your email address via a submission form located on our Site or when you sign up for a Site Account. Your email address may be used to send you news about eero services, surveys, products or promotions. We may use one or more service providers, including to administer these messages.
In addition, where permitted by law we use third party service providers to analyze Cookie and Pixel Tags data from our Site to create mailing lists for direct mail advertising and web-based advertising for our Devices and Services. Our Site offers you the ability to set your preferences regarding Cookies and Pixel Tags (including the ability to opt out) through the Settings function available by clicking on the “Cookies Preferences” link at the bottom of the Site page.
User testimonials and feedback
We often receive testimonials and comments from users who have had positive experiences with our Services. We occasionally publish such content. When we publish this content, we may identify our users by their first and last name and may also indicate their home city. We obtain the user’s express consent prior to posting his or her last name along with the testimonial. We may post user feedback on the Site from time to time. We will share your feedback with your first name and last initial only. If we choose to post your first and last name along with your feedback, we will obtain your consent prior to posting your last name with your feedback. If you make any comments on a blog or forum associated with our Site, you should be aware that any Personal Data you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these blogs and forums.
Creation of Anonymous Data
We may create Anonymous Data records from Personal Data by excluding information (such as your name, email address, or IP address) that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We use this Anonymous Data to analyze request and usage patterns so that we may enhance the content of our Services and improve Site navigation. We reserve the right to use Anonymous Data for any purpose and disclose Anonymous Data to third parties in our sole discretion.
Disclosure of your Personal Data
We disclose your Personal Data as described below and as described elsewhere in this Privacy Notice.
User consent or direction
We may share or disclose your Personal Data at your direction, such as when you authorize a third party web client or application to access your Site Account or when you direct us to share your feedback with a business. We have no control over, do not review, and cannot be responsible for these third party web clients and applications.
Third party service providers and companies
We may share your Personal Data with third party service providers and other companies to:
- provide you with the Services that we offer you through our Site, including fulfilling orders, processing credit card payments, or other functions necessary for our business;
- analyze how our users use our Site and Services;
- provide marketing services;
- facilitate creation of accounts; provide technical support; and/or
- provide other services, including but not limited to services on behalf of eero.
We may share some or all of your Personal Data with our affiliates, if any, that are either subject to this Privacy Notice or will use your Personal Data consistent with the practices described in this Privacy Notice.
We may share some or all of your Personal Data in connection with or during negotiation of any business transaction, including merger, acquisition or dissolution, transaction or proceeding involving sale, transfer, divestiture, or disclosure of all or a portion of our business or assets. In the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, Personal Data may also be transferred as a business asset. If another company acquires our company, business, or assets, that company will possess the Personal Data collected by us and will assume the rights and obligations regarding your Personal Data as described in this Privacy Notice.
We may use marketing tools such as Facebook's Custom Audience and Lookalike Audience programs that enable us to display personalized ads to eero customers as well as consumers with characteristics similar to those of our existing eero customers. To identify our existing customers to Facebook and determine relevant characteristics of our existing customer base, we may process your email address and phone number through Facebook’s “hashing” local browser application that converts this information to a string of alphanumeric data that is then sent to Facebook to enable Facebook to identify you (Custom Audiences) and identify other Facebook users with similar profile characteristics (Lookalike Audiences). 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.
Regardless of any choices you make regarding your Personal Data (as described below), eero may disclose Personal Data if it believes in good faith that such disclosure is necessary (a) in connection with any legal investigation; (b) to comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on eero or as otherwise permissible by law; (c) to protect or defend the rights or property of eero or its users of the Site or Services; and/or (d) to investigate or assist in preventing any violation or potential violation of the law, this Privacy Notice, or our Terms of Service.
