1. How We Collect and Use Information
We collect personal information in order to provide customers with a personalized, useful, and efficient experience. The categories of information we collect and store may include, but is not limited to, the following:
Information from Bobsweep Products and Apps
We may collect and handle personal information directly from your Bobsweep connected products and Bobsweep Apps. A connected product is a Bobsweep product that is equipped with smart technology which allows the Robots to transmit data wirelessly to the Service. We may collect information about your use of our connected products or Apps to help us optimize their performance and your experience using them. We may also collect internet protocol (IP) and/or media access control (MAC) identifier information about your mobile device. When you register or connect a product with the App, we may collect information about the product, such as a Robot name and device number, and information about the Robot and/or App usage, feature usage, in-App transactions, technical specifications, crashes, and other information about how you use your product and the App. Some of the information we collect from your use of our connected products and Apps may enable us to determine the location of your connected product or collect information about the environment in which the product is used. This data is collected so that we can understand the location and environmental conditions in which your connected product is operating; for example, by giving an indication of the environment in which your connected product operates, we are able to better optimize the performance of the connected product. Some of our connected products may not be able to operate without collecting personal information, location information, or collecting information about the product’s movements throughout the environment to create a location ‘map’ of the space available to the product, and so by registering for the App and using a connected product, you agree to this use of your information. We use this information to collect and analyze statistics and usage data, diagnose and fix technological problems, enhance device performance, and improve user experience. We may also use this information to provide you personalized communications, including marketing and promotional messages, such as e-mails providing product order information when your device indicates its battery is low. Our products do not transmit this information unless you register your device online and connect to WiFi, Bluetooth, or connect to the internet via another method. It is possible to use Bobsweep connected products without WiFi or Bluetooth data transmission, simply by never connecting the product to WiFi, Bluetooth or internet, and instead manually performing the robot’s controls, however some of the product’s functionalities may require an internet connection.
Information We Receive from Third Parties
If you interact with our Website or Apps through various social media network or authentication service, such as when you “Like” or “Follow us” on various social networks, these services will authenticate your identity and we may receive information from the social network such as your profile information, profile picture, gender, user name, user ID associated with your social media account, age range, language, country, friends list, and any other information you permit the social network to share with third parties.

In some instances, we and/or our third party service providers may combine this usage information with personal information in which case the combined information will be treated as personal information. We typically collect this information through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, file information, and similar technology (collectively, “tracking technologies”). We, and our third party partners, use tracking technologies to automatically collect usage and device information, such as: We may send one or more cookie — a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters — or other tracking technologies to your device that uniquely identifies your IP address, your browser, Internet service provider, device type/model/manufacturer, operating system, date and time stamp, and a unique ID that allows us to uniquely identify your browser, mobile device, or your account (including, for example, a persistent device identifier or an Ad ID), and other such information, and lets us help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. We may also work with third-party partners to use technologies such as the application of statistical modeling tools to recognize and contact you across multiple devices. A tracking technology like a cookie may also convey information to us about how you use the Website, App, or Service (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click, how frequently you access the Website or App, and other actions you take on the Website, App, or Service), and allow us to track your usage of the Website, App, or Service over time.

We may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons), which are used to anonymously track the online usage patterns of our Customers. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based e-mails sent to our users to track which e-mails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. This information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Website, App, and Service. We may also collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Website, App, Service and to understand more about the demographics of our users.

The information generated by the cookies used to analyze your use of our Website and Service (including your IP address) may be transmitted to and stored on servers in the United States.
