In this Privacy Statement, the expression “Bitfinder Products” also includes our Mobile App, API and other services as defined in our Terms of Service.

I. What information does Bitfinder collect?

- Elective information through participation in site functions

- Inputs, interactions and usage of the Mobile App and site
- Technical information from the device and Mobile App
- Location Information
- Personal Data as required for the ordering process

When you install the Awair app, you’ll be asked several questions to create an account and in order to help us create an initial setup of your preference and device settings. Answering these questions helps us to set up an initial program. As part of the creation of an account, you will be asked to supply personal data, such as your e‐mail address and gender (“Personal Data”).
Personal Data means any information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person.
Elective Information through participation in site functions:
Environmental data from the Bitfinder Products’ sensors:
We collect data from several sensors built into the Bitfinder Products. These sensors collect data such as current temperature, humidity, VOC level, CO2 level, and dust level in the room. The collection of this data is integral to the operation of the Bitfinder Products and app, as it key to monitoring your air quality and is used to determine recommendations. This data can also be used to integrate with and control other devices based on your personal environmental factors. Bitfinder records a history of the data collected by the Bitfinder Products. This allow us to offer you features such as usage history or analytics based on the sensor data.
Inputs, interactions and usage of the Mobile App: Your inputs and interactions with the Mobile App and site are recorded as you use and interact with the Mobile App and site. For example, when you swipe away a solution card, that interaction is recorded so that you will not see that card again.
Technical information from the device, Mobile App and site:
In order to improve your experience over time and help troubleshoot any problem you may encounter with any Bitfinder Services, we record technical information such as your Awair device’s model and serial number or software version. We also record other technical information such as the version number for your Mobile App.
To connect your Bitfinder device to our Services, or to access your data over the Internet from a computer, a smartphone or a tablet, you will need to connect it to your Wi-Fi network. During setup, we will ask for your Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password to connect to the Internet. Bitfinder will save this along with your IP address.
Like most Internet sites, we additionally routinely record log entries (including information such as your IP address) and technical information (such as your browser type and version) when there is contact with our services, for example with your browser, mobile device, or device.
When you use location-based services on your Bitfinder Products' application or device, such as when measuring environmental conditions, then the physical location of your device will be collected in order to provide you with location-based services. This location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you. With your consent, we may collect and upload from your device data such as location and environmental conditions at such locations. This data would be aggregated with data from devices of other consenting users to enhance the quality of data and other content provided by us or content providers. If you provide your consent, then we may also share this data with or sell this data to third parties. This data would be shared and sold anonymously in a form that would not personally identify you.
Personal Data as required for the ordering process:
In order to process and ship orders, Bitfinder will require the collection of Personal Data such as your address and credit card information. Except in connection with your order to purchase a product through the Site, we do not collect any credit card or other financial account information.
We will collect information on the products you purchase from us such as their serial numbers, date of purchase and (if applicable) event logs that are useful in diagnosing product or application performance related issues. We may also use this information relating to a support or service issue.
Non-personal data collected by the browser:
When you access the Bitfinder Services through the Site, we receive and store certain personally non‐identifiable information. Such information, which are collected passively using various technologies, cannot be used to specifically identify you. Therefore, such information shall not be regarded as Personal Data. Bitfinder may store such information itself and/or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Bitfinder's affiliates, agents or service providers. This Site may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process. In operating this Site, we may use a technology called "cookies." A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Site gives to your browser when you access the Site. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Site and help us analyze Site usage more accurately. For instance, our Site may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Site without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site.
On most web browsers, you will find a 'help' section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Site's features.
II. How does my Bitfinder account or data collected by Bitfinder interact with third parties?
- Integration with third-party devices
- Use of third-party services
- Collection of data from third parties
- Collection of data by third party partners
Bitfinder integrates with certain third-party services in order to enhance the functionality of the Bitfinder Products and to allow greater options to optimize and control your air. When integrating with these services, your account information and device data may be shared.
Use of third-party services:
Bitfinder uses or engages certain third party services for various functions such as our referral program. In order to allow the functionality of those services, Bitfinder may share your data with those third-party services.
We also have vendors, service providers, and technicians who help with some of our processing and storage, or at times to help to answer your questions. They may also assist with monitoring our servers for technical problems. These technicians, vendors, etc. (as well as Bitfinder employees) can access certain information about you or your account in line with this work but these technicians are not allowed to use this data for non‐Bitfinder purposes.
Collection of data from third parties:
Bitfinder may receive and process information from third parties, and some of this information may be associated or stored with your Bitfinder account. We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with the information in your account. For example, in order to offer discounts or rewards, we might collect certain information (such as which of our partners offers services where you live) to determine eligibility and efficacy of our programs.
Collection of data from third-party partners:
Any data that Bitfinder receives from third-party products and services will be processed and stored by Bitfinder and will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Statement. This information may be processed in the same ways as any other data that is a part of your Bitfinder account or the Bitfinder data logs.
III. When does Bitfinder share your data?
Interaction with third parties:
Bitfinder may share your data with third parties in a manner consistent with Section II (How does my Bitfinder account or data collected by Bitfinder interact with third parties?).
For users with enterprise account or using Bitfinder services for a business or enterprise, users with access to the main enterprise account may have a dashboard or may be able to obtain reports to specific to an individual’s data and data generated by a specific Bitfinder Product. If you obtain your Bitfinder Product or Bitfinder account from your enterprise or allow your enterprise access to information from your Bitfinder Product or Bitfinder account, the manager or personnel from your enterprise may have access to information from your account.
With your explicit consent:
We may share personal information when we have your consent. One example of this would be if you sign up for programs offered by our partners. If you do this, we may share certain information with the partner. This could include things like your enrollment information and the activation status of your device.
In emergency situations:
We may share information in the case of an emergency. This includes protecting the safety of our employees and agents, our customers, or any person.
As part of business transitions:
Upon the sale or transfer of the company and/or all or part of its assets, your personal information may be among the items sold or transferred. We will request a purchaser to treat our data under the privacy statement in place at the time of its collection.
For legal reasons:
We may provide information to a third party if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so for legal reasons. For example, to respond to legal process, or comply with state and federal laws (or the applicable laws of foreign countries other than the United States).
We may share non‐personal information (for example, aggregated or anonymized customer data) publicly and with our partners. For example, we may publish trends about air quality or usage trends of our customers. This information may also be shared with other users to help them better understand their air quality habits compared to others in the Bitfinder community, raise awareness about safety issues, or help us generally improve our system. We may also share non‐personal information with our partners, for example, if they are interested in providing demand‐response services or other incentive programs. We take steps to keep this non‐personal information from being associated with you and we require our partners to do the same.
Your personal information may be collected, processed and stored by Bitfinder or its service providers in the United States and other countries where our servers reside. As a result, your personal information may be subject to legal requirements, including lawful requirements to disclose personal information to government authorities, in those jurisdictions.
If you select an outside party for the purchase, installation, or service of your Bitfinder device and share your personal information, we cannot control the collection, storage or sharing of information collected by that party. For example, if you buy a Bitfinder Product from a retailer, the retailer may collect personal information as part of the transaction. Or the party that installed the device may retain information that you provided to them to assist them in servicing the device if needed. Always check the privacy policies for any company that collects your personal information.
IV. How long does Bitfinder save my personal information?
Bitfinder generally stores your personal information on Bitfinder’s servers until you delete or edit it, or for as long as you remain a Bitfinder customer in order to provide you with Bitfinder Services.
You can access, amend or delete certain personal information through the controls in your account. Because of the way we maintain certain Services, after your information is deleted, backup copies may linger for some time before they are deleted, and we may retain certain data for a longer period of time if we are required to do so for legal reasons.
Please note that this Privacy Statement may change from time to time. We will provide notice of any changes on the website or by contacting you.
If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com.

You and Bitfinder agree, subject to the Protection of Confidentiality and Intellectual Property Rights clause of these Terms, to submit any claim, dispute, action, cause of action, issue, or request for relief arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of the Services to binding arbitration rather than by filing any lawsuit in any forum other than set forth in this section. Further you agree arbitration is final and binding and subject to only very limited review by a court. You also waive your right to any form of appeal, review or recourse to any court or other judicial authority, insofar as such waiver may be validly made. This provision is intended to be interpreted broadly to encompass all disputes or claims arising out of or relating to your use of the Service. Subject to the Protection of Confidentiality and Intellectual Property Rights clause of these Terms, any dispute or claim made by you against us or us against you arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of the Services (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory) will be resolved by binding arbitration except that you may take claims to small claims court if they qualify for hearing by such a court.
c. Arbitration Procedures.
You must first present any claim or dispute to us by contacting Bitfinder to allow us an opportunity to resolve the dispute. You may request arbitration if your claim or dispute cannot be resolved within 60 days after presenting the claim or dispute to Bitfinder. Bitfinder may request arbitration against you at any time after it has notified you of a claim or dispute in accordance with the Notifications section of these Terms. The arbitration of any dispute or claim shall be conducted in accordance with the then current and applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association as modified by this agreement. The place of any arbitration will be Palo Alto, California, USA, and will be conducted in the English language. Claims will be heard by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator may not award relief in excess of or contrary to what this agreement provides, order consolidation or arbitration on a class wide or representative basis, award punitive or consequential damages or any other damages aside from the prevailing party’s actual damages, or order injunctive or declaratory relief, except that the arbitrator may award on an individual basis damages required by statute and may order injunctive or declaratory relief pursuant to an applicable consumer protection statute.

Otherwise, you agree that these Terms, and any claim, dispute, action, cause of action, issue, or request for relief arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of the Products and Services shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide the application of the law of another jurisdiction. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in or for Santa Clara County, California for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes, unless such claim or dispute is required to be arbitrated as set forth in an above section.
c. Protection of Confidentiality and Intellectual Property Rights.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Bitfinder may seek injunctive or other equitable relief to protect its confidential information and intellectual property rights or to prevent loss of data or damage to its servers in any court of competent jurisdiction.
d. Entire Agreement/Severability.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Bitfinder regarding the use of the Services. Any failure by Bitfinder to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. If any provision of these Terms is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of these Terms will be unimpaired and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law. Neither party is an agent or partner of the other party.
All provisions of this Agreement which, by their nature, should survive termination, shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability.
These Terms, and any associated rights or obligations, may not be assigned or otherwise transferred by you without Bitfinder’s prior written consent. These Terms may be assigned by Bitfinder without restriction. These Terms are binding upon any permitted assignee.

Partner agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Awair and the directors, officers, employees, subcontractors and agents thereof (each, an “Indemnified Party”, and collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”), with respect to any claim, demand, cause of action, debt or liability, including reasonable attorneys’ fees (collectively, “claims”), to the extent that such claim is based upon or arises out of: (a) Partner’s breach of any representation, warranty, obligation or covenant under the Agreement; (b) Partner’s gross negligence or willful misconduct; (c) any warranty, condition, representation, indemnity or guarantee relating to Awair Entities granted by Partner to any customer or other third party; (d) Partner’s breach of any term of the Agreement; (e) Partner’s relationship with any customer.
C. Notice of Indemnification
In claiming any indemnification hereunder, the Indemnified Party shall promptly provide Partner with written notice of any claim which the Indemnified Party believes falls within the scope of the indemnifications provided under the Agreement. The Indemnified Party may, at its own expense, assist in the defense if it so chooses, provided that Partner shall control such defense and all negotiations relative to the settlement of any such claim and further provided that in settling any claim the Partner will not make any admission on behalf of the Indemnified Party or agree to any terms or conditions that do or reasonably could result in any admission by, or the imposition of any liability upon, the Indemnified Party without the prior written approval of the Indemnified Party.

VIII. General provisions
A. Force Majeure
If the performance of any part of the Agreement by either Party is prevented, hindered, delayed or otherwise made impracticable by reason of any flood, riot, fire, judicial or governmental action (including, but not limited to, any law, regulation or embargo prohibiting the performance contemplated hereunder and/or the failure or refusal of a government agency to issue a license required for any performance pursuant to the Agreement), labor disputes, act of God or any cause beyond the reasonable control of that Party, the Party shall be excused from such performance to the extent that it is prevented, hindered or delayed by such cause. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Party prevented from performing hereunder by a force majeure event shall nevertheless use its best efforts to recommence its performance hereunder as soon as reasonably practicable and to mitigate any damages resulting from its non-performance hereunder.
B. Independent Contractors
The Parties to the Agreement are independent contractors. Neither Party is an agent, representative or related entity of the other Party. Neither Party shall have any right, power or authority to enter into any agreement for, or on behalf of, or incur any obligation or liability of, or otherwise bind, the other Party. The Agreement shall not be interpreted or construed to create an association, agency, joint venture or partnership between the Parties or to impose any liability attributable to such a relationship upon either Party.
Nothing in the Agreement is intended to create, nor shall it be construed as creating, any exclusive arrangement between the Parties to the Agreement. The Agreement shall not restrict either Party from entering into similar arrangements with others, provided it does not breach its obligations under the Agreement by doing so.
Any notice, approval, request, authorization, direction or other communication under the Agreement shall be given in writing and shall be deemed to have been delivered and given for all purposes (a) on the delivery date if delivered personally, or by email to Partner’s email address listed in the Partner Account, and to email@example.com; (b) two (2) business days after deposit with an internationally recognized commercial overnight courier service, with written verification of receipt; or (c) five (5) business days after deposit in certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, postage and charges prepaid, to the address provided in the Partner Account, and for Awair to firstname.lastname@example.org.
E. No Waiver
The failure of either Party to insist upon or enforce strict performance by the other Party of any provision of the Agreement or to exercise any right under the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment to any extent of such Party’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance; rather, the same shall be and remain in full force and effect. Each waiver shall be set forth in a written instrument signed by the waiving Party.
F. Entire Agreement
The Agreement, including any completed application form and all guidelines and other documents linked or otherwise reference herein, sets forth the entire agreement and supersedes any and all prior agreements, written or oral, of the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof (including, but not limited to, any prior version of the Agreement). Neither Party shall be bound by, and each Party specifically objects to, any term, condition or other provision that is different from or in addition to the provisions of the Agreement (whether or not it would materially alter the Agreement) and which is proffered by the other Party in any correspondence or other document, unless the Party to be bound thereby specifically agrees to such provision in writing.
All the terms and provisions of the Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties to the Agreement and to their respective heirs, successors, permitted assigns and legal representatives. Neither Party shall have the right to assign or otherwise transfer the Agreement, or any of its rights or obligations hereunder, to any third party without the other Party’s prior written consent.
H. Applicable Laws
The Agreement shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California USA applicable therein, without regard to principles of conflicts of laws.
