We use the information we collect to, among other things
We also use the information we collect in ways described to you at the point of collection, or otherwise with your consent.

Send an email to our Data Protection Officer at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We do not collect Personal Information about you through the Platform without your knowledge or action. We use Personal Information that we collect to (i) provide the Platform services you request; (ii) understand the way you use the Platform services so that we can improve your experience; (iii) comply with our legal and regulatory obligations and our legitimate business interests; and (iv) offer you products or services we consider may be of interest to you or for other marketing purposes. Your information is collected and used in the following ways through the Platform.
The Platform. Pixeom operates the Platform, which offers an interface that allows software services to store and exchange data from diverse devices. The Platform exposes application programming interfaces (APIs) that enable developers to store or read data from devices, services and mobile applications. The Personal Information collected through the APIs and hosted on the Platform's cloud servers may include, but is not limited to, name, credit card information, and other demographic information of the user recorded by the third party service, or a device. The Personal Information collected through the Platform is used to offer the Platform's services. Personal Information stored through the Platform may include medical information if a user has chosen to store such information. The Personal Information is transferred to the United States (where privacy laws may not be as adequate as in the jurisdiction in which you are based if outside the United States) to Pixeom to enable us to operate the Platform or provide a service to you. By using the Platform you expressly agree to the transfer of the Personal Information to the United States.
Platform Websites. Pixeom offers various products and services on websites associated with the Platform, including the Developer Portal, the Test Portal, and other licensed Portals. Personal Information is collected through the registration forms of the Platform websites, and may include, but is not limited to, name, phone number, fax number, email address and, if applicable, credit card information. The Personal Information collected through the Platform websites is used to offer the particular products and services available through the Platform.
Information About Your Use of the Platform. In addition to the information you provide, we may collect information about your use of the Platform, such as the applications and devices you use, the websites you visit, and how you interact with content offered through a Platform service.
Other Information We Collect. We also may collect other information about you, your device(s), or your use of the Platform in ways that we describe to you at the point of collection or otherwise with your consent.
Disclosures Under Special Circumstances. There may be instances when we disclose your Personal Information to other parties:
Aggregated Data. Pixeom collects aggregate queries for internal reporting and also counts, tracks, and aggregates the visitor's activity into Pixeom’s analysis of general traffic-flow through the Platform. To these ends, Pixeom may merge information about you into aggregated group data. In some cases, Pixeom may remove personal identifiers from Personal Information and maintain it in aggregate form that may later be combined with other information to generate anonymous, aggregated statistical information. Such anonymous, group data may be shared on an aggregated basis with Pixeom’s affiliates, business partners, service providers and/or vendors; if it does so, Pixeom will not disclose your individual identity.
Web Server Logs and IP Addresses. An Internet Protocol ("IP") address is a number that automatically identifies the computer/machine you have used to access the Internet. The IP address enables our server to send you the web pages that you want to visit, and it may disclose the server owned by your Internet Service Provider. Pixeom may use IP addresses to conduct website analyses and performance reviews and to administer the Platform.
Cookies. Cookies are small files that store information on your computer, mobile phone or other device. They enable the entity that put the cookie on your device to recognize you across different websites, services, devices, and/or browsing sessions. Cookies serve many useful purposes. For example:
When you use a web browser to access a website, you can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is sent. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. The operating system of your device may contain additional controls for cookies. For further information about cookies see www.allaboutcookies.org.
Please note, however, that some services may be designed to work using cookies and that disabling cookies may affect your ability to use those services, or certain parts of them.
Other Local Storage. We, along with certain third parties, may use other kinds of local storage technologies, such as Local Shared Objects (also referred to as "Flash cookies") and HTML5 local storage, in connection with our services. These technologies are similar to the cookies discussed above in that they are stored on your device and can be used to store certain information about your activities and preferences. However, these technologies may make use of different parts of your device from standard cookies, and so you might not be able to control them using standard browser tools and settings. For information about disabling or deleting information contained in Flash cookies, please click here: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/disable-local-shared-objects-flash.html.
Beacons. We also may use technologies called beacons (or "pixels") that communicate information from your device to a server. Beacons can be embedded in online content, videos, and emails, and can allow a server to read certain types of information from your device, know when you have viewed particular content or a particular email message, determine the time and date on which you viewed the beacon, and the IP address of your device. We may use beacons for a variety of purposes, including to analyze the use of the Platform and (in conjunction with cookies) to provide content that is more relevant to you.
By accessing and using the Platform or our website, you expressly consent to the storage of cookies, other local storage technologies, beacons and other information on your devices. You also consent to the access of such cookies, local storage technologies, beacons and information by us.
Pixeom understands that storing data in a secure manner is essential. Pixeom stores Personal Information and other data using reasonable physical, technical and administrative safeguards to secure data against foreseeable risks, such as unauthorized use, access, disclosure, destruction or modification. Although we make good faith efforts to store the information we collect in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee complete security. Further, while we work to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining this information.
Our Platform services may link to third-party websites and services that are outside our control. We are not responsible for the security or privacy of any information collected by such websites or other services. You should exercise caution, and review the privacy statements applicable to the third-party websites and services you use. We also make available to you certain products or services (e.g., apps available through the Platform) developed by third parties. Pixeom is not responsible for these third-party products or services.
Under Age 13
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of thirteen (13) without parental consent, unless permitted by law. If we learn that a child under the age of thirteen (13) has provided us with personal information, we will delete it in accordance with applicable law.
Under Age 18
Minors under 18 years of age may have the Personal Information that they have provided to Pixeom while using the Platform deleted by sending an email to email@example.com requesting deletion. Please note that, while we make reasonable efforts to comply with such requests, deletion of your personal information does not ensure complete and comprehensive removal of that data from all systems.
Some web browsers may transmit "do-not-track" signals to the websites with which the user communicates, although web browsers incorporate and activate this functionality in different ways, and it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted. There currently is disagreement, including among participants in the leading Internet standards-setting organization, concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals. Pixeom currently does not take action in response to these signals, but, if and when a standard is established and accepted, we may reassess how to respond to these signals.
The Platform gives users the option to correct, update or delete information previously provided to us by the user; however, we will maintain copies of user information to the extent retained as part of the Platform's standard backup/archive process or required by law or regulatory requirements and subject to our legal obligations.

Log into the Pixeom Edge IoT Platform here: https://pixeom.net
Send an email to our Data Protection Officer at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Pixeom Edge IoT platform (the “Platform”) collects and processes your personal information that is provided by you, as the End User, or generated by you in your use of the Platform, the Pixeom website and your use of the applications and related services (collectively the “Services”). This Privacy Notice is provided to you in accordance with applicable privacy laws including, but not limited to, laws implementing the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) (the “Data Privacy Laws”). It applies only to residents in the European Economic Area ("EEA"), Switzerland and the UK who use the Platform and it explains what information you provide to us (through connecting your apps to the Platform and your account) and how we use your information to provide the Services to you and manage your account. This Privacy Notice is not applicable to End Users in any other territory other than in the EEA, Switzerland and the UK. All capitalized terms shall have the same definitions as provided under the Pixeom Terms of Service, unless otherwise defined herein.
We, Pixeom, Inc., together with any subsidiaries and/or affiliates that license materials for the Pixeom Edge IoT Platform (collectively, "Pixeom", "we", "us" or "our") offer the Services to Users both through the Platform directly and through various Integrated Services offered by Third Parties you may choose to use via your Pixeom Account, and so you may modify and change your privacy settings through such Integrated Services (as applicable). Any Integrated Service or other Third Party Product that you use in connection with the Services must inform you of how your personal information is used and shared when you use or connect to that Third Party Product and you have privacy rights against such entities in this regard.
We include in this Privacy Notice a summary of your rights to control how we use your personal information. We aim to put you, the end user, in control of how your personal information is used by Pixeom as we provide the Services. We are a data controller under the Data Privacy Laws in relation to your Pixeom account holder information and other information as described in the “Your personal information” section below. We may also, in some limited respects, act as a data controller of your personal data stored in the Platform where you have directly connected your Pixeom account with a Third Party Product, but this capacity is limited to the means of storing the personal data rather than the use of the personal data, which remains controlled by the Third Party Product. In all other aspects, Pixeom acts as a data processor for the Third Party Products and services to which you connect or use with your Pixeom account and products.
Your personal information includes any information relating to you where you are identified or from which you are identifiable. This includes your name, photos, videos, information about where you live and your use of devices and mobile applications. If you share information about other individuals, such as family and friends, you expressly warrant and undertake that you have their permission to do so in compliance with the Data Privacy Laws.
We collect various types of personal information in connection with the Platform from different sources, including:
Some of the personal information you provide to us, if you consent, may include health information or other sensitive or special categories of personal information. Typically, we do not access your personal information from your apps and connected devices unless there is a request from you for technical assistance. In this event, in restricted circumstances, our technical team may have access to your personal data uploaded or accessed by these apps and devices. More usually, we only have access to the information provided to open your Pixeom account. The applications and devices you use in connection with the Services, however, have access to your personal information in the Platform, which is determined by your use of these applications and devices and your privacy settings.
All the personal information we collect from you or generated by you is used to provide the Platform and other Services. Pixeom does not typically access your personal information other to facilitate the provision of the Services to you and to operate, evaluate and improve our products and services. We process personal information for these purposes because we have a legitimate interest in administering and providing the Services to you. You have the ability to set and modify the privacy settings in the apps and devices you connect to your Pixeom Account. We allow the device makers or the mobile application providers to access your personal information where you have provided consent to allow us to do this, and you may revoke your consent to such access at any time.
We also process your personal information to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations and/or our contractual obligations to you to provide the Services, to manage your account with us and to manage technical issues that may arise.
Your personal information is processed by us in the United States and is held on servers provided by Google Cloud Platform in the United States, which may have a lower standard of data privacy laws than your country of residence. Our security measures are described below in this Privacy Notice. Google Cloud Platform has assured us that it has security measures which are compliant with applicable Data Privacy Laws (see https://cloud.google.com/security/gdpr/). Pixeom affiliates providing Services will also enter into European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses where required for data transfers from the EEA, Switzerland and the UK. For more information about our security measures, these Clauses or to receive a copy of them, use the contact information below.
There may be instances when we disclose your personal information to other parties:
We may share your personal information with other business entities in connection with the sale, assignment, merger or other transfer of all or a portion of Pixeom’s business or assets to that business entity.
Pixeom understands that storing data in a secure manner is essential. Pixeom stores personal information and other data using reasonable physical, technical and administrative safeguards to secure data against foreseeable risks, such as unauthorized use, access, disclosure, destruction or modification. Although we make good faith efforts to store the information we collect in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee complete security. Further, while we work to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining this information.
As a general matter, personal information relating to your use of Services is deleted approximately thirty days after it first becomes available on the Platform unless an integrated service with which you are using the Services has purchased an additional data retention service from us. We retain personal information relating to your account for the period for which we provide the Services to you and for a further period of seven to ten years after the Pixeom account is closed for legal, regulatory, audit and tax requirements. Any personal information which you have provided to us for marketing purposes will be kept until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive this information. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after information is deleted from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
We would like to use your name and email address to inform you of our future or related services, offers and similar products. If you provide us with your consent to receive marketing communications, we will offer the right to unsubscribe in each electronic communication. This information is not shared with third parties and you can unsubscribe at any time via email, the Platform or through our website.
You have the right to ensure your personal information is accurate. To make changes to your contact and other account information, or to opt out of receiving marketing communications, please contact us in one of the following ways:
Log into the Pixeom Edge IoT Platform here: https://pixeom.net
Send an email to our Data Protection Officer at: email@example.com
You have the right to request that we delete your personal information. In this event, we will close your account and retain your personal information as described above in this Privacy Notice. You have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal information or object to the processing of your personal information on grounds relating to your particular situation. This may compromise your ability to use the Services.
You also have the right to transfer your account details to another cloud provider. We will, following your written request to us, provide you with your relevant personal information in a machine-readable format to transfer to another cloud provider.
If you wish to raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal information, you can contact our office (details above) who will investigate the matter and respond to you promptly.
If you are not satisfied with our response, you can complain to any applicable data privacy authority in your country of residence.
