Examples of personal information include your name, telephone number, email address, physical address, and payment information.
Personal information also includes information that alone cannot directly identify you, but with other information we have access to can identify you, such as product serial numbers, log data that automatically records information about your visit, such as your browser type, domains, page views, the URL of the page that referred you, the URL of the page you next visit, your IP address, and page navigation, unique device ID collected from Products and your mobile devices, data from cookies, pixel tags, and web beacons, the country and time zone of the connected Product, geo-location, mobile phone carrier identification, and device software platform and firmware information.
In order to provide the Services of EZVIZ App to you, as a controller, we collect and process your Personal Information. We will ask you to provide Personal Information that is necessary to provide those services to you, and we process the Personal Information which you voluntarily provide to us. If you do not provide your Personal Information, we may not be able to provide you with our Products or EZVIZ Services. We may also collect Personal Information from publicly or non-publicly accessible sources, for example, Facebook, where you use your Facebook Account to register an EZVIZ App Account.
Here are more details on the types of Personal Information we collect when you use EZVIZ Services and Products:
Account information. We collect, and associate with your account, the information you provide to us when you do things such as sign up for your account, subscribe for premium services (e.g. CloudPlay Services), and set up two-factor authentication, e.g. your user name, your phone number, email address, payment information and physical address. When you sign up for your account, we will also collect your location, e.g. which country or district you resident. We use this location to decide the nearest data center to support your use of EZVIZ Services.
Your Product information. Our EZVIZ Services are designed to make it simple for you to manage your Product, like previewing your video captured or processed by your IP camera product in real time. To make that possible, we need to associate your Product with your Account by collecting your Product information when you install and activate Products, such as your Product name, the Product’s verification code and serial number, which are unique to the Product connected to EZVIZ Services and associated with your Account. We also collect the parameter and configuration information of your Product when you configure your Product in your Account.
Your Content. Our EZVIZ Services enable you to view, save and share content through EZVIZ Services, like video clips, live video streams, images, captions and comments (“Your Content”). To make that possible,we may record, process and transmit the video and/or audio content from the Product, as well as the content you uploaded including the images, texts, sounds, when you use the Product and/or the Service’s features. If you share Your Content with others, we will further collect the phone number or email address of you and the person you elect to share Your Content with. We may also process information from your Product so that we can send you alerts when something happens. This may include capturing and sending you portions of Your data as part of a notification or analyzing the data to identify motion or other events. To clarify: (i) for the streaming video you preview in real time, we only transmit it, rather than store it;(ii)When you use EZVIZ Services to receive pictures or videos as alerts information, we will only store this information for seven days to enable this function; and (iii) When you store video clips in your own SD card of your Product, you may use our playback function to view the video, in which case we only transmit your information, rather than store it.
Customer service information. If you contact us with questions or concerns about EZVIZ Services or Products, we may use your personal information to verify your identity and respond.
If you contact us via EZVIZ Customer Services, we may further require certain personal information. You can find more details about how we process your personal information in our privacy notice (https://www.ezviz.com/legal/privacy-notice-of-ezviz-customer-services).
When there are reasonable doubts regarding your identity, you might be asked to provide further information, e.g. a copy of a document, which help us to verify your identity. It can be any document such as a photo of your Product, or your purchase invoice. Should you provide any other documents, personal details such as your name and your address should be in clear in order to be able to identify you, while any other data such as a photo or any personal characteristics, may be blacked out. Our use of the information on your identification document is strictly limited: the information will only be used to verify your identity and will not be stored for longer than needed for this purpose.
