1.1. General. When you visit Kaadas Home websites and use Kaadas Home mobile applications without registering, you can browse without submitting personal information about yourself. If you register for an account within or to access Kaadas Home Services, we will collect some personally identifiable information from you, including your username, email address, and hashed version of the password you select. When you interact with Kaadas Home Services, we also receive and store certain additional types of information which, in general, do not directly identify you. For example, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device including your IP address, browser type and language, referring/exit pages and URLs, device type, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, cookie information, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time. This Section of the Policy outlines the various ways that information is collected from Kaadas Home Services. Please fully review this Policy before you use Kaadas Home Services or submit information to us.
(a) Registration and Login. Certain Kaadas Home Services require you to register for an account and/or log in using credentials. You can register for an account from our account registration system or a third-party site or service such as Facebook ("Account"). When you register for an Account you may be asked to provide some personally identifiable information, such as your email address, phone number, lock SN code, and a username and password that you select. When you are asked to create an Account using your credentials from a third-party site or service, you will be asked for your username, password, and other information to verify that you have an account with the third-party site or service. When you provide credentials for a third-party site or service, we may use those credentials to obtain information about you from that third party. See Section 1.4 (Information from Other Sources) and 3.4 (Social Sites) for more information. When you register an Account and log in to Kaadas Home Services you must provide your current, complete, and accurate information. It is your responsibility to keep your information up to date. We are not responsible for any problems, interruptions in access, or liability that may arise if you do not give us complete and accurate information or if you fail to update your information so that it is current.
(b) Product Set Up.To use certain products such as our lock products, we may record information relating to the setup, general performance, and operation of our Service, your application and lock (and of other of our locks in your home or business or that you otherwise may access), including device status, logs of those who lock/unlock the device and Service, the guests that you invite, and those people who may invite you as a guest, to use the device and application. We may store this data along with your personally identifying information and other information about your use of our Service. We use this information to allow you (and us) to operate and monitor your device and our Service.
While your application connects to Kaadas Home lock, you need to use Bluetooth features in your app, and the Kaadas Home app needs to get your phone two permissions, Bluetooth permission is necessary to perform any Bluetooth communication, such as requesting a connection, accepting a connection, and transferring data. Also, location information permission is necessary because a Bluetooth scan can gather information about the location of the user. This information may come from the user's own devices, as well as Bluetooth beacons in use at locations such as shops and transit facilities. And if you enable the Auto-Unlock feature, the application will track your location information using GPS to determine when your application nears Kaadas Home devices that you have permission to access (e.g. when you are near home). This location information will tell your mobile device to start listening for your lock more often (increasing the polling). This improves the Kaadas Home device's performance and saves your mobile device's battery life.
(c) Correspondence. If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, about your use of Kaadas Home Services, we may save the information in a profile specific to you.
(d) Information You Provide to Others. You may choose to share information with third parties such as social networking Sites like Facebook and WeChat ("Social Sites") by "sharing" a Bluetooth key. See Section 3.4 (Social Sites) for more information.
1.3. Automatically Collected Information.We will collect some information about you and any product or device you use to access or use Kaadas Home Services automatically using a variety of technologies. In general, automatically collected information about the use of Kaadas Home Services does not directly identify you and the information may include your diagnostic log information, IP address, browser type, language, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, cookie information, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the actions performed in the Kaadas Home App, the info(OS type/version, network, etc.) of the phone which the Kaadas Home App was installed, and the date and time. We collect this information for the purposes described in this Policy, including to better understand our customer base and to improve the quality of our Kaadas Home Services. We do NOT collect information not related to the use of the Kaadas Home services.
(a) Mobile Data. When you use certain features of the Service, in particular our mobile applications, we may receive, store, and process different types of information about your location, including general information (e.g., IP address, zip code) and more specific information (e.g., GPS-based functionality on mobile devices used to access the Service or specific features of the platform). If you access the Service through a mobile device and you do not want your mobile device to provide us with location-tracking information, you can disable the GPS or other location-tracking functions on your mobile device. See your mobile device manufacturer's instructions for further details. Of course, if you do this, Service functionality (such as the Auto-Unlock feature described immediately above) may not work.
(b) Guest Access. As part of our Services, you may give others ("guests") permission levels to access your Kaadas Home device – e.g. to unlock and lock your door (and possibly even to pass this access along to others). Needless to say, you must be careful of the guests that you invite and the access that you give them. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL USES OF YOUR ACCOUNT, SO BE CAREFUL TO SECURE THIS INFORMATION AND ONLY GIVE ACCESS TO PEOPLE YOU TRUST.
If you send us a request (for example via a support email or one of our feedback mechanisms), we may use your information to contact you and provide support or a response. We also reserve the right to publish your request to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.

But you can delete your account information manually, and it will be purged from our system.
2.5. Transfer of personal information outside of your jurisdiction. To the extent that we need to transfer personal information outside your jurisdiction, whether it is transferred to our affiliates (these may include communications, social media, technology, or cloud services) or to third-party service providers, we shall do so following the applicable laws. In particular, to ensure that all such transfers comply with applicable local data protection laws, we will implement appropriate security safeguards. You will have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards taken by Kaadas Home for this transfer of your personal information. For example, if you choose to use other third-party services available for this product or service (such as Amazon, Google, etc.), those third parties may be able to read information about you, and information about you may also be transferred to a third-party server outside of your jurisdiction, and you agree to this kind of transfer.
Whenever we share personal data originating in the EEA with a third party that may or may not be a Kaadas Home entity outside the EEA, we will do so on the basis of EU standard contractual clauses or any other safeguards provided for in the GDPR.
For example, if you choose to use other third-party services available for this product or service (such as Amazon, Google, etc.), those third parties may be able to read information about you, and information about you may also be transferred to a third-party server outside of your jurisdiction, and you agree to this kind of transfer.
3.1. General. We will not sell or rent any of your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes.

3.5. Disclaimer.We cannot ensure that all of your personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Policy. For example, we may be required to disclose personal information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the Kaadas Home Services.
