If you have multiple Products, your User Data may be shared between those Products. For example, User Data concerning usage statistics may be transmitted between the Products in your home and your mobile device or Deako’s servers. As soon as you connect the Products to your Wi-Fi or Bluetooth network, the Product will regularly collect and send your User Data to Deako. We will store your User Data indefinitely and in a profile specific to you and some User Data may be stored directly on Products.
* Location Data. Certain features available in the Service may allow or require us to obtain your location information, including GPS coordinates in real time (“GPS Location”). Your GPS Location may allow us to locate you with a high degree of precision. If the Service is unable to acquire your GPS Location, certain features of the Service may not be available to you.

* Support Requests or Communications Submitted by You. Any personal communications that you or a third party voluntarily submits to us in any format, including by email, postal mail, or any other method of communication may be collected and saved indefinitely in a profile specific to you.
* Automatically Collected Information. Similar to other web sites and mobile applications, we may collect some information automatically and store it in log files. We may use Google Analytics or other third party analytics providers to collect this information about the Service. This information does not identify you. This collection may include, but is not limited to: your IP address, browser type and language, device type, referring/exit pages and URLs, other browser history, 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 of each request you make. We collect this non-identifying information in order to better understand our customer base, to more efficiently operate our business, to promote our products and services, and to improve the quality of the Service. We do not link analytics information with any of your personally identifiable information, or User Data. We may automatically collect information using various mechanisms, including but not limited to:
Cookies. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a computer for record-keeping purposes. Our third-party analytics providers use cookies to record information about your activities while using the Service and to “remember” you when you return to the Service. Some cookies remain on your computer until you delete them. Others, like session ID cookies, expire when you close your browser. You may set your browser setting to attempt to reject cookies and you may still use the Service. See the section entitled “Do-Not Track Settings” below for more information on how the Service may respond to your browser settings. We do not control the use of cookies by third parties.

Pixels (aka web beacons/web bugs/java script). Pixels are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track the online movements of web users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a computer’s hard drive, pixels are small graphics that are about the size of the period at the end of the sentence that are embedded invisibly on web pages or in HTML-based emails. Our third-party analytics providers may place pixels on the Site that track what other websites you visit (both before and after visiting the Site). Our third-party analytics providers use information obtained from pixels to help us improve our business and the Service. We do not control the use of pixels by third parties. 
Google Analytics uses cookies and pixels in order to collect demographic and interest-level information and usage information from users that visit the Service, including but not limited to information about the pages where users enter and exit the Site and what pages users view on the Site, time spent, browser, operating system, and IP address. Cookies and pixels allow Google to recognize a user when a user visits the Site and when the user visits other websites. Google uses the information it collects from the Site and other websites to share with us and other website operators information about users including, but not limited to, age range, gender, geographic regions, general interests, and details about devices used to visit websites and purchase items. We do not link information we receive from Google with any of your personally identifiable information, or User Data. For more information regarding Google’s use of cookies, pixels, and collection and use of information, please review Google’s Privacy Policy. If you would like to opt out of Google Analytics tracking, please visit the following link: Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on
* Payment Information; Third-Party Payment Processor. Credit card payments, including recurring charges, are handled through our third party payment processor. Our third party payment processor will collect and may retain your credit card information in order to process your payment, including payment for your purchases of Products or for recurring annual Service charges. We do not control the third party collection, use, disclosure, or retention of your information. Pease review our third party payment processor’s privacy policy and terms of use prior to submitting your payment information. Also see the “Affiliated Entities and Service Providers” section below.

* General. We will use your personally identifiable information to operate, manage and administer your Account and the Service; to fulfill your orders for Products; to provide you with support or a more personalized experience; to communicate with you; to monitor Service usage; to improve the Service or Products and to develop and test new products, services, websites, or applications; to match interests; to provide you information about products and services (including the products and services of third parties); to resolve disputes; to detect and protect against errors, fraud, and illegal activity; to assist law enforcement; to enforce this Policy and the Terms; to measure consumer interest; or for any other purpose described in this Policy or described to you at the time of collection.
* Communications. We may use your personally identifiable information to send you emails, notifications, text messages, or other communications related to your use of the Service, your Account, your orders for Products; or to respond to your inquiries or requests. You may not opt-out of Service-related emails which are not promotional in nature. We may also send you promotional emails to notify you about products or services that may be of interest to you. If you would like to stop receiving promotional messages from us or third parties, please click on the opt-out link in any non-Service related email you receive. If you opt-out, you will continue to receive Service-related communications from us.
* Use of Non-Personally Identifiable and Aggregate Information. We may use non-personally identifiable information and aggregate information for any lawful purpose, including, but not limited to, analysing trends, managing and administering the Service, tracking users’ movements, to create new products or services, for research purposes, or to improve our business and the Service. We may also share aggregate information with third parties to develop and deliver targeted advertising and to analyze and report on the advertising you see. In addition, we may share aggregate statistical information with our business partners. We may also combine your non-personally identifiable information and aggregate information with other non-personally identifiable information and aggregate information collected from other sources. Aggregate information will not be connected with your personally-identifiable information.

* Affiliated Entities and Service Providers. We may disclose your information, including personal information, to any affiliated entity or organization, business partner, and to agents and service providers to help us operate the Service, improve our business or the Service, to provide services to us. These third parties may include customer service providers, business or sales service providers, or providers that provide support for the Service. Use of information by affiliated entities and service providers will be subject to this Policy or an agreement at least as restrictive as this Policy. We will not share your personal information for marketing purposes or with other third parties for purposes unrelated to the Service without your explicit consent.
* Legal Requirements. In some cases, we may disclose your information, including personal information, User Content, or User Data (i) as required by any applicable law or legal regulation; (ii) if we believe disclosure is needed to protect our rights, property, or safety; (iii) to government regulators or law enforcement authorities in connection with any judicial proceeding, court order, subpoena, or legal process served on us or the Service; and (iv) to respond to a physical threat to you or another person.
* Insolvency and Business Transitions. If we should ever file for bankruptcy or engage in a business transition such as a merger with another company, or if we purchase, sell, or reorganize all or part of our business or assets, we may disclose your information, including personal information, User Content, and User Data, to prospective or actual purchasers in connection with one of these transactions.
* Aggregate Information. We may share aggregate information with our affiliated entities and service providers, business partners, or with other third parties or the general public. We may publish information about usage statistics and trends and connect this information with certain demographic information. We may disclose this information in order to contribute to research, or to improve the Service and Products. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that aggregate information is never associated with you or your personal information.
* Disclaimer. We cannot ensure that all of your personal information and User Data will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Policy. For example, a third party may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or other users of the Service may abuse or misuse your personal information or User Data. No transmission of data over the internet can be 100% secure.

6. INFORMATION RETENTION. We may retain your information (including personally identifiable information and User Data) indefinitely, or as long as legally required or allowed, for our business needs and in order to deter fraud, abuse or a breach of our contract. By accessing, using, or registering for the Service, you consent to our information retention practices. If you cancel your Account or your Account is otherwise terminated, we may, but are not obligated to, delete any information we have collected or obtained from you or third parties and we may continue to store, use, and disclose that information in accordance with this Policy. Deako does not undertake any retention obligations through this statement.

7. INFORMATION SECURITY MEASURES. Keeping your information secure is of great concern to us. We exercise care in facilitating the transmission of information between your device or computer, the Products, and the third party servers that operate and store information for the Service. The personal information and User Data we collect is stored in operating environments that are not available to the public. While we have mechanisms in place to safeguard your personal information and User Data once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

8. “DO NOT TRACK” SETTINGS. Because we track Service usage information through the use of cookies, pixels and other tracking mechanisms, your selection of the “Do Not Track” option provided by your browser may not have any effect on our collection of cookie information. The only way to completely “opt out” of the collection of any information through cookies or other tracking technology is to actively manage the settings on your browser to delete and disable cookies and other tracking/recording tools. However, getting a “Do Not Track” signal to work as you might want is difficult. Using browsers as an example, not all tracking technologies can be controlled by browsers; unique aspects of your browser might be recognizable even if you disable a tracking technology; not all settings will necessarily last or be effective; even if a setting is effective for one purpose, data still may be collected for another; and even if one website observes a “Do Not Track” signal, that website usually will not be able to control other websites.

* The Service is not for or Directed Towards Children. You must be 18 years of age or older to use the Service. Children under the age of 13 are prohibited from registering for an Account and we will never knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected information from a child under the age of 13, we will remove that information immediately and delete it from our servers. If you believe information from a child under the age of 13 has been provided to the Service, please notify us at:
* California Minors. The Service is not available to users under age 18. If you are a California resident under age 18 and you believe your information has become publicly-available in the Service and you are unable to remove it, you may request removal by contacting us at: When requesting removal, you must be specific about the information or User Content you want removed and provide us with specific information, such as the URL for each page where the information is located, so that we can find it. We are not required to remove any User Content or information that: (1) federal or state law requires us or a third party to maintain; (2) the User Content or information was not posted by you; (3) we anonymize the User Content or information so that you cannot be identified; (4) you do not follow our instructions for removing or requesting removal; or (5) you received compensation or other consideration for providing the User Content or information. REMOVAL OF YOUR USER CONTENT OR INFORMATION FROM THE SERVICE DOES NOT ENSURE COMPLETE OR COMPREHENSIVE REMOVAL OF THAT USER CONTENT OR INFORMATION FROM OUR SYSTEMS OR THE SYSTEMS OF OUR SERVICE PROVIDERS. We are not required to delete the User Content or information posted by you; our obligations under California law are satisfied so long as we anonymize the User Content or information or render it invisible to other users and the public.

10. CALIFORNIA SHINE THE LIGHT LAW. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed personal information (as defined under that statute) of that California resident, for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the categories of that kind of personal information that was disclosed to them. If you are a California resident and you wish to make such a request, you may do so by contacting us at:

If your Account is terminated for any reason, your information will no longer be accessible through your Account or associated with your Account. However, activity that occurred prior to deletion may still continue to be stored on our systems or the systems of our service providers indefinitely.

Prior to making a purchase, you should determine whether the Products will be compatible with your property. You must also confirm that the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth service available in your property is sufficient to support the use of the Products.

You may take your Products with you when you move or move your Products within your property, at any time.

Any list of examples following "including" or "e.g.," is illustrative and not exhaustive, unless qualified by terms like "only" or "solely." Deako's failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive its rights to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.

You and Deako intend that the provisions of these Terms be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. Accordingly, you and Deako agree that if any provision is deemed unenforceable, where possible, it will be modified to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, which may include its deletion. Deako may assign these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice to you. You may not assign, transfer or sublicense your rights (if any).

30. CONTACT INFORMATION. If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions regarding the Service, Products, Application, your Account, or these Terms, please contact us at:
A. LIMITED WARRANTY. Deako warrants that Products will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 1 year (or 6 months for factory refurbished products) from the date of delivery following the original retail purchase (the "Warranty Period"). If the Product fails to conform to this limited warranty during the Warranty Period, Deako will, at its sole discretion, either (A) repair or replace any defective Product or component; or (B) accept the return of the Product and refund the price actually paid by the original purchaser for the Product. Repair or replacement may be made with a new or refurbished product or components, at Deako's sole discretion. If the Product or a component incorporated within it is no longer available, Deako may replace the Product with a similar product of similar function, at Deako's sole discretion. This is your sole and exclusive remedy for breach of this Limited Warranty. Any Product that has either been repaired or replaced under this Limited Warranty will be covered by the terms of this Limited Warranty for the longer of 45 days from the date of delivery or the remaining Warranty Period. This Limited Warranty is transferable from the original purchaser to subsequent owners, but the Warranty Period will not be extended in duration or expanded in coverage for any such transfer.

B. EXCLUSIONS. This limited warranty does not cover the following Products (collectively "Ineligible Products"): Products marked as "sample" or sold "AS IS;" or Products that have been subject to: (A) modifications, alterations, tampering, or improper maintenance or repairs; (B) handling, storage, installation, testing, or use not in accordance with the User's Guide or other instructions provided by Deako; (C) abuse or misuse; (D) breakdowns, fluctuations, or interruptions in electric power or the telecommunications network; or (E) Acts of God, including lightning, flood, tornado, earthquake, or hurricane. This limited warranty does not cover consumable parts, including batteries, unless damage is due to defects in materials or workmanship of the Product, or software (even if packaged or sold with the product). Deako recommends that you use only authorized service providers for maintenance or repair. Unauthorized use of the Product or software can impair the Product's performance and may invalidate this limited warranty.

C. WARRANTY CONDITIONS; CLAIMS PROCESS. Before being able to claim under this limited warranty, the owner of the Product must (A) notify Deako of the intention to claim by during the Warranty Period and providing a description of the alleged Product failure, and (B) comply with Deako’s return shipping instructions (postage pre-paid). Deako will have no warranty obligations with respect to a returned Product if it determines, in its reasonable discretion after examination of the returned Product, that the Product is an Ineligible Product (defined above). Deako will bear all costs of return shipping to owner, except with respect to any Ineligible Product, for which owner will bear all shipping costs.

D. VARIATIONS THAT MAY APPLY TO THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so some of the exclusions and limitations set forth above may not apply to you. Nothing in this Section 3 will be interpreted as limiting an implied warranty which cannot under applicable law be limited in those jurisdictions. If you reside, or are otherwise subject to the laws in one of those jurisdictions, the limitations in this Section 3 may not apply to you. For a full description of your legal rights, you should refer to the laws applicable in your jurisdiction and you may wish to contact a relevant consumer advisory service.
