For instance, we automatically collect the MAC address, maker name and model of your devices, up and down status, operating system version, unique device identifiers and the related software.  We also collect real time operating status of your network and its connected devices (i.e. network speed, IP addresses, device event information such as disconnections, system activity, hardware settings, the date and time of your requests) and the related diagnostics information.   We may process information from your devices so that we can send you alerts when something happens.

The Domotz products and services allow you to interact with third party services, for example those provided by Nest and Smart Things.

If you select a third party to share your information, we cannot control the collection, storage or sharing of information collected by that party. Always check the privacy policies for any company that collects your data and make sure you are requested to grant/deny permission to access your information.

When you choose to connect third-party products and services through Domotz products and services, you are shown details about any proposed exchange(s) of data between Domotz products and services and the third party that is providing the products or service.

Where does Domotz process my information?
To provide you with our services when you are on the go, we may need to store, process and transmit information in locations around the world from where you are accessing our services– including those outside your country. Those countries may not provide the same level of protection for your data as your home country, and may be available to the governments or agencies under a lawful order of those countries.

How long does Domotz save my data and how can I delete it?

How does Domotz keep my information secure?

We take security seriously and care about the integrity of your data. We use administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to protect the confidentiality of personally identifiable information, including encryption, firewalls and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer).
