Once you have created a user account and registered your Bridge(s), our servers will begin to store the operating history of the connected pool. This data is used to provide the information that you will see when logging in to your account, or when an authorised person accesses your account. We undertake not to sell or share any personally identifiable data (herein after referred to as Personal Data) to a 3rd party for marketing or any other purposes. In addition, we will only use Personal Data for supporting the features that we offer to you. The Company will always give you the option to opt out of any contact messages.
The communication device used to connect your pool to the Site is the Bridge. In certain circumstances the owner of the swimming pool (herein after referred to as the Pool Owner) and the owner of the Bridge (herein after referred to as the Bridge Owner), may not be the same individual or company; an example of this where a pool maintenance company installs a Bridge and uses the Site to coordinate their maintenance schedule. When a Bridge is connected to a swimming pool, the Company assumes that the Bridge Owner has been authorised by the Pool Owner to act on their behalf and the Company can in no way be held responsible for any actions taken by the Bridge Owner. A Bridge Owner and a Pool Owner are granted the same user profile of Owner on the Site. The Owner is responsible for all Personal Data submitted on behalf of the Pool Owner.
A pool professional can request to be granted the user profile of Manager on the Site. This will enable him to manage a portfolio of swimming pools without necessarily being an Owner. This will be the profile commonly used by pool maintenance and management services. An Owner can designate a Manager from a pre-defined list of registered professionals available on the Site. The Manager will be entirely responsible for any actions taken on behalf of the Owner and it will be assumed that he has been authorised to do so by prior agreement with the Owner. The Company can in no way be held responsible for any actions taken by the Manager.
The Site is not intended for use by individuals under the age of 18 years without verifiable parental consent.
Using the Bridge, the Company will be able to collect, upload and store data from the pool. This continuously uploaded data is what enables users of the Site to remotely monitor and control their pools. This data will include both automated activities and user initiated activity as well as water quality measurements and status of all connected pool equipment. Some of this data will indicate Pool Owner habits and activities and will be uniquely associated with a specific pool and any linked accessories. For this reason the Company considers that data associated with an individual pool should be considered Personal Data and will be treated as such.
One of the features of the Site is that data and information collected may be used to calculate trends or alerts which can then be communicated to the Owner and Manager. The Company cannot be responsible for mistakes made in the input of information in the user account settings which may result in this communication not being received.
From time to time we may use some of the data collected from different pools and or user accounts to improve product reliability or features or to make studies of trends. In these cases any Personal Data will be removed and thus the data output will become anonymous and aggregate.
We may use the Personal Data associated with each pool and each user account to contact Owners and registered Managers with regards to important product information, updates and marketing offers. However, all users will have the option to specify and modify their communication preferences at any time.
All Personal Data collected by the Company becomes the property of the Company. The Owner will always have access to this data.
