Sharing Information with Others
The following are the limited situations where we may share your personal data:
We may share your personal data with trusted third parties that perform business functions (e.g. hosting and/or operating our websites, analyzing data or technical monitoring of our systems) or provide services on our behalf (e.g. support services).
All such third parties will be required to adequately safeguard your personal data and only process it in accordance with our instructions.
Sometimes ECR International, Inc. offers you a service in cooperation with other companies. In such cases, we may exchange your personal data with these companies to allow you to make optimal use of our combined services. ECR International, Inc. will only do so when we consider that the third parties will provide a welcome additional service and we will only share your data with these companies with your prior consent.
Upon the sale or transfer of ECR International, Inc. and/or all or part of its assets, your personal information may be among the items sold or transferred.
ECR International, Inc. may share non-personal information publicly and with our partners. For example, we may publish trends about energy use in the home. This information may also be shared with other end users to help them better understand their energy usage compared to others or help us generally improve our system. We may also share this information with energy companies, for example, if they are interested in providing demand-response services. We take steps to keep this non-personal information from being associated with specific end users and we require our partners to do the same.
We may also disclose your personal information (i) to comply with any court order, law, or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request; (ii) to enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements, including for billing and collection purposes, and (iii) if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of ECR International, Inc., our customers, or others.

Subject to applicable law, we may charge you a small fee to access your personal data. We will provide an individual access to any personal information we hold about them within 30 days of any request for that information. Unless it’s prohibited by law, we’ll remove any personal information about an individual from our servers at their request. Because of the way we maintain certain services, it may take some time before backup copies are erased, and we may retain certain data if we are required to do so for legal reasons.
Data Privacy Rights for Individuals in California
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provides California residents with certain rights regarding their personal information. This section describes those rights and explains how they may be exercised by those subject to the CCPA.
Data Access, Deletion and Portability Rights
the categories of personal information that we collected from you;
the categories of sources of personal information that we collected about you;
our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling your personal information;
if we sold or disclosed your personal information to a third party for a business purpose: 1) for sales, identify personal information categories that each category of third party recipient(s) purchased and/or 2) for disclosures pursuant to a business purpose, identify the personal information categories that each category of third party recipient()s obtained.
the categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information;
the specific personal information that we collected about you;
You may also request deletion of your personal information. Upon our confirmation of a verifiable consumer request, we will delete your personal information and/or direct our service providers to delete the information unless we need to retain the information and are permitted to do so by law.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising your CCPA rights. That is, unless otherwise permitted by law, we will not:
deny you goods or services;
charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties;
provide you with a different level of goods or services;
Pursuant to the CCPA, however, there may be circumstances when we may offer you certain financial incentives as compensation for collecting, selling or deleting personal information, which will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value. We may also offer a different price, rate, level or quality of goods or services to consumers where the price or difference is directly related to the value provided to us by the consumer’s personal information. We will provide you with written terms that explain the material aspects of any such incentive program. Participation in such a program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
How to Exercise Data Access and Data Portability Rights
To exercise the data access and portability rights described in this section, please submit a verifiable request to us by contacting us at:
You may make a request for data access or portability twice within a twelve-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
provide sufficient information to allow us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected and/or shared personal information; and
describe your request in sufficient detail to allow us to understand and respond to it.
If you fail to comply with the foregoing requirements, we will be unable to provide you with any personal information that is in our possession. Any personal information provided in connection with a request to exercise your rights under the CCPA will only be used for identity verification purposes.

Security and Retention of Information
ECR International, Inc. will make reasonable efforts to ensure that your personal data are properly secured using appropriate technical and organizational measures, so that they are protected against unauthorized or unlawful use, alteration, unauthorized access or disclosure, accidental or wrongful destruction, and loss. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as long as needed to provide you services. We may also retain and use your information in order to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent abuse, and enforce our agreements. We do collect and retain “aggregate data,” that is, group data with no personal identifiers, which is used to help us understand how the mobile application is being used and to improve its usability, and we also use aggregate data to enhance the quality and availability of the heating system products and services we offer.
As described above, some information is processed and stored directly on ECR International, Inc. room thermostats. You can delete the information on your room thermostat by resetting it to the defaults.
Notice of Breach of Security
Nobody is safe from hackers. If a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into our system that materially affects and/or presents a real risk of significant harm to you, then ECR International, Inc. will notify you and required others as soon as possible in accordance with applicable legal requirements.
Privacy of Children
ECR International, Inc. systems, software and services are not intended for use by children under the age of 18, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 18. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 18 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 18, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Automatic Information Collection and Tracking Technologies
We do not track our visitors across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore we do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your internet browser may allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
Social Media Platforms and Other Websites
ECR International, Inc. may include social media features in conjunction with its products and services, like links to our Facebook® or Twitter® pages. These features may collect information about your IP address and which page you’re visiting on our site, and they may set a cookie to make sure the feature functions properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our site. We also maintain presences on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Any information, communications, or materials you submit to us via a social media platform is done at your own risk without any expectation of privacy. We cannot control the actions of other users of these platforms or the actions of the platforms themselves. Your interactions with those features and platforms are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them.
