1. INFORMATION COLLECTION PRACTICES
When you visit NCONNECT websites and use NCONNECT mobile applications without registering, you can browse without submitting personal information about yourself. If you register for an account within or to access a NCONNECT Services, we will collect some personally identifiable information from you, including your full name, username, email address, and hashed version of the password you select. When you interact with the NCONNECT 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 the NCONNECT Services. Please fully review this Policy before you use the NCONNECT Services or submit information to us.
1.2. Information that You Provide.
(a) Registration and Login. Certain NCONNECT 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 full name, email address, phone number, camera 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 3.5 (Social Sites) for more information. When you register an Account and log in to a NCONNECT 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. In order to use certain products such as our camera products, you will need to associate the product with your Account following the directions provided with the product. When you associate a product with your Account you will need to provide Wi-Fi network information (this may include username and password) to NCONNECT mobile applications (“NCONNECT App” or “NCONNECT Apps”). The NCONNECT App will send the information to the product by using QR code and the product will use the information to connect to the Wi-Fi network. Once a product is associated with your Account it will remain associated until you unbind the product from your Account or terminate your Account. The Wi-Fi network user name and password may be saved in your NCONNECT Apps or your NCONNECT products but it will not be sent to NCONNECT Services or NCONNECT.
(c) Correspondence. If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, about your use of the NCONNECT 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” videos and photos. See Section 3.5 (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 the NCONNECT Services automatically using a variety of technologies. In general, automatically collected information about the use of NCONNECT Services does not directly identify you and the information may include your diagnostic log information, IP address, browser type and 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 NCONNECT App, the info(OS type/version, network, etc.) of the phone which the NCONNECT 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 NCONNECT Services. We do NOT collect information not related to the use of the NCONNECT Services.
(a) Video Transmission.
The primary mode of transmission of video from our NCONNECT camera products to our NCONNECT Apps is through a point-to-point direct connection. When encountering unreliable point-to-point network conditions, the NCONNECT camera product may opt to relay videos through our servers to the mobile app to achieve optimal viewing experience. In each scenario, both videos and the transmission channel are securely encrypted. The role of our servers is only to act as a relay agent, and they do not store video content transmitted to or through them in connection with our provision of NCONNECT Services.
(b) Activity Alert Video/Picture.
This is an optional feature, and off by default, and user needs to manually activate this feature in the NCONNECT App before transmission happens. Turning this feature OFF will NOT affect the normal operations of NCONNECT Home/Dome Cam and its NCONNECT App. If the user chooses to turn on this feature, a short video up to 10 seconds long and one or more pictures are encrypted individually and transferred to and stored on our servers when the camera has detected activity, provided that you have activated the “activity alerts” functionality within the NCONNECT App for NCONNECT camera product. If you don’t delete the videos stored on our servers, they shall be automatically deleted on a regular basis (typically seven days). However, we cannot ensure that residual copies do not survive elsewhere (e.g., in a cache or backup).
Pixels are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track how the web page is accessed. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer 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 provider uses information obtained from pixels to help us improve our NCONNECT Services. We do not control the use of pixels by third parties.

If you share access to your camera by authorizing a third party on your Account, the third party will be permitted to access that camera and to record videos from that camera until you remove them from your Account. We encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to enabling third party access your cameras because we do not control the actions of any third party and cannot stop them from sharing videos obtained from your camera with others.
