Please take a few moments to read the sections below to make sure you understand our policies.

1. HOW WE COLLECT AND USE INFORMATION

Through our Service, we help developers and companies build the latest wearable and wireless sensor technology.

Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meaning given them in our Terms of Use.

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION: We collect information that can be used to identify you as an individual ("Personally Identifiable Information") only when you provide such information directly to us in connection with the Service.

TYPES OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE US DIRECTLY: We ask for Personally Identifiable Information such as your name, email address, and address when you register for a User account on our community, when you purchase a product in the store, when you download and use our Apps and code, or if you correspond with us (in which case we will also retain our responses).

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION WE MAY RECEIVE FROM THIRD PARTIES: We may receive Personally Identifiable Information about you from third parties. For example, if you access our websites or Service through a third-party connection or log-in, that third party may pass certain information about your use of its service to MbientLab. This information could include, but is not limited to, the user ID associated with your account, an access token necessary to access that service, any information that you have permitted the third party to share with us, and any information you have made public in connection with that service. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to MbientLab’s websites or Service.

USE OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION: We may use the Personally Identifiable Information we collect or receive to communicate directly with you. We may also send you emails containing newsletters, promotions and special offers that we believe may interest you. If you do not want to receive such email messages, we will give you the option to opt out or change your preferences. We also use your Personally Identifiable Information to send you Service-related emails (e.g., account verification, purchase and billing confirmations and reminders, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). You may not opt out of Service-related e-mails.

NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION: We also collect and use information about your interactions with the Service in a manner and format that does not identify you as an individual ("Non-Personally Identifiable Information"). We may collect, use, and disclose the following types of Non-Personally Identifiable Information:

ANALYTICS INFORMATION. We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, including the web pages you visit, your browser add-ons, your browser’s width and height, and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We may collect and use this analytics information in aggregate form such that it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual user] [together with your Personally Identifiable Information to build a broader profile of our individual Users so that we can serve you better.

COOKIES INFORMATION: When you visit the Service, we may send one or more cookies (a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters) to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and lets MbientLab help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. A cookie may also convey information to us about how you use the Service (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on the Service), and allow us or our business partners to track your usage of the Service over time. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the Service may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

LOG FILE INFORMATION: Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page. When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information. These server logs may include anonymous information such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.

2. SHARING OF YOUR INFORMATION

MbientLab may transfer information that we collect about you, including personal information, to affiliated entities, or to other third parties across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction, and you consent to the transfer of information to the U.S. or any other country in which MbientLab or its subsidiaries, affiliates or service providers maintain facilities and the use and disclosure of information about you, including Personally Identifiable Information, as described in this Privacy Policy.

KEEPING YOUR INFORMATION SAFE: MbientLab cares about the security of your information, and uses commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of all information collected through the Service.

OPTING OUT OF COLLECTION OF NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION: Please refer to your mobile device or browser’s technical information for instructions on how to delete and disable cookies, and other tracking/recording tools.
