Building 36’s Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Mission

We are sensitive to the private nature of the information you provide to us. Our Privacy Policy is designed to maximize your ability to protect your personal, private data while at the same time giving you the opportunity to remotely monitor and access your system. This Privacy Policy states our privacy practices for your use of (i) this website and any mobile sites or applications operated by Building 36 (the “User Interfaces”); and (ii) any combination of products and services we provide or which can be purchased or accessed via any User Interface (the “Services”). Please read the Privacy Policy carefully.

Information Collection and Use

Building 36 collects and stores certain information from or about you that can be used to uniquely contact, identify, or locate you (“Personal Information”). When using the User Interfaces, you may provide us with Personal Information including, but not limited to, name, address, phone number and email address. When you use our Services, you may provide us with certain additional information (e.g., unit description, home or business size, home or business system configuration, sensor names, appliances or other devices monitored by Building 36, account information, schedule, mode, automation settings, and device settings) in order for us to personalize your services. Building 36 may also receive Personal Information that you have provided to our partners, to enable Building 36 to provide our Services.

Building 36 may collect information regarding your use of the Building 36 User Interfaces and Services, including but not limited to: performance of any device monitored by Building 36, electrical usage or consumption, heating and cooling information, light or other fixture settings, and usage and alert logs. We receive this type of information from your devices that are monitored or controlled by Building 36 and your computer or other electronic device through which you may access, browse, download, receive, or otherwise use the Building 36 User Interfaces or Services (each a “Personal Device”), and we may also receive and collect such information from third parties.

Location-based Information

Some features of our services, such as location-activated automation reminders and other location-based services (collectively, “GeoServices”), use location information. Before GeoServices information can be used or collected, you must first opt-in to activate these services. If you enable these features, we will automatically collect and store location information from a device you designate which is capable of producing location data (e.g., mobile device, GPS device, or vehicle). This location information may include your current location or places you have recently visited. We also may aggregate this information, but this information will only be used for Building 36’s internal purposes and to provide information requested by you. If you do not wish for us to collect and store this information, do not enable these features.

Video and Audio Data

When you subscribe to Building 36’s video monitoring service, use a connected doorbell, camera, or other connected device, you may enable us to record, store and process video and/or audio recordings from your monitoring equipment, subject to your configuration and settings. This may include capturing and emailing to you portions of this data as part of a notification or analyzing the data to identify motion or other events. We may process information from your monitoring equipment so that we can send you alerts. In addition, if you have the recording features enabled, we will capture, process and store video and audio data recordings from your device and you may be able to access those recordings.

Data protection and privacy laws in your country may impose certain responsibilities on you and your use of security cameras, connected doorbells and other devices with recording capabilities. You (not Building 36) are responsible for ensuring that you comply with any applicable laws. For example, you may need to display a notice that alerts visitors to your home or office that they may be recorded using security cameras and other devices with recording capabilities. Building 36 takes no responsibility for your compliance with applicable law.

Information Sharing

Building 36 will not disclose your Personal Information to any other entity except:

  • as is necessary to provide the Building 36 User Interfaces and Services to you;
  • to your automation company (also referred to as your Building 36 Dealer), the company through which you subscribed to our Services;
  • when you have opted in to share the information;
  • when we need to share the information with an entity who works on our behalf to provide the Services. (These entities do not have any right to use the Personal Information we provide to them beyond what is necessary to assist us);
  • if you are an existing end-user customer, to promote additional Building 36 products and Services to you, either directly or through a third party;
  • as is necessary in connection with other business purposes; and
  • as it is otherwise necessary to disclose as required or permitted by law.

In addition, we may disclose your information when the information has been converted to a form that cannot be used to identify you. It may also be necessary for us to disclose your Personal Information in case of a merger or combination with, or acquisition of a portion of its business by, another company or entity, in which case Personal Information collected by Building 36 would be expected to be one of the transferred business assets.

Information Protection

Building 36 has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of your information. For example, we protect your information through a unique username and password, and we protect certain sensitive communications with our website through server authentication and secure connections. However, no method of data transmission is completely secure.

Viewing, Updating, and Deleting Information

You may view, update, or delete your Personal Information at any time by following the links at Building 36 to your profile and address book pages. These changes will be immediately made to our records. If you wish to stop notifications, you may do so through the website.

Cookies and Web Beacons

We employ “cookie” technology and web beacons to help you move faster through the User Interfaces, to help improve the functionality of the User Interfaces, to collect information for advertising of our Services and to optimize your use of our User Interfaces. A cookie is a string of information sent by a User Interface and stored on your hard drive or temporarily in your Personal Device’s memory. A “web beacon” is an electronic image placed in the code of a web page. Our third party service providers may employ cookies and web beacons to tailor Building 36’s advertising to your interests, monitor the traffic patterns of users from one Building 36 page to another or to improve site performance. We also use cookies to identify you on future visits to our site and to other sites. When you access the Building 36 User Interfaces, we place a cookie on your computer. This allows the user interfaces to recognize you as you move through the User Interfaces. At your discretion, Building 36 may store and access cookies on your Personal Device to allow you to bypass the process of re-entering certain information each time you access the Building 36 website. You can also delete cookies from your website browser at any time.

We may collect information relating to customer trends and patterns and use cookies and software tools to measure site usage and related information.

We may also permit third parties to place or modify cookies on your Personal Device on our behalf. The third parties can use these “tracking cookies” (also known as “third party cookies”) to determine if you have visited certain pages on our site or other sites and may use tracking cookies to present targeted advertisements to you as you visit other sites. These tracking cookies do not contain personally identifiable information (though they do identify the Personal Device that you use to visit the site) and you can configure your browser to reject tracking cookies.

If you access our Services or the User Interfaces through your Personal Device, we may automatically collect certain information about your Personal Device that could include usage information and statistics, an IP address, Personal Device type and model, browser type, Personal Device ID, domain names, access times, referring website addresses, Personal Device settings and history, and other information collected about your access of the User Interfaces or receipt of communications or notification from Building 36.

Third Party Websites

For your convenience, some hyperlinks may be posted on the Building 36 website that link to other websites not under Building 36’s control. Building 36 is not responsible for, and this Privacy Policy does not apply to, the privacy practices of those sites or of any companies that Building 36 does not own or control. Building 36 does not endorse any of these websites or pages, the services or products described or offered on such sites or pages, or any of the content contained on those sites or pages. Building 36 encourages you to seek out and read the privacy policy of each website that you visit. In addition, should you happen to initiate a transaction on a website linked to the Building 36 website, even if you reached that site through the Building 36 User Interfaces, the information that you submit to complete that transaction becomes subject to the privacy practices of the operator of that linked website. You should read that website’s privacy policies to understand how Personal Information that is collected about you is used and protected.

By using our Services, you understand and consent to the transfer of your information to our facilities in the United States and sharing of your information with the third parties described in this Privacy Policy.
