Except where IQAir posts a separate privacy policy, this Privacy Policy applies to all information we collect or acquire from and about consumers through any media, channels and platforms, whether online, offline, via mobile and wireless platforms, or otherwise, and whether existing now or in the future, as well as IQAir-branded applications that operate on or in connection with third party social media sites and platforms, such as apps for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google/YouTube (all the foregoing, hereinafter referred to as the "IQAir Interactive Platform" or "Site"); and (ii) via other collection, acquisitions and marketing channels (e.g., direct mail, paper and phone enrollments, cross-sell programs, affiliate marketing, and our Business Partners (as defined in Section 2 below)).

We are committed to respecting your privacy and recognize your desire to protect personal information you share with us. This Privacy Policy describes the types of information we may collect from and/or about you (whether via the IQAir Interactive Platform or otherwise), the treatment of such information, and the choices you have regarding our collection and use of, and your ability to review and update your information. By submitting your information to us, you expressly give us permission to receive, store, process and use such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy also constitutes part of the Terms and Conditions for Use of Site that govern your use of the IQAir Interactive Platform. In addition, this Privacy Policy constitutes part of the terms and conditions (such as official rules) that govern your participation in any and all events and activities offered or sponsored by us.

Notice To California Residents – Your California Privacy Rights:

Effective January 1, 2005, under California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (known as the "Shine the Light" law), if an individual who is a California resident has provided personal information to a business in connection with a business relationship that is primarily for personal, family, or household purposes, and if that business has within the immediately preceding calendar year disclosed such an individual's personal information to a third-party and knows or should have known that such third-party used the information for its own direct marketing purposes, then that business is obligated to disclose in writing to such individual upon request, what personal information was shared and with whom it was shared. A business may comply with this law by: (1) having EITHER a published privacy policy of not sharing a customer's personal information for third-parties' direct marketing use unless the customer has first affirmatively opted in to such sharing OR a published privacy policy of not sharing a customer's personal information for third-parties' direct marketing use if the customer has opted out to prevent his/her personal information from being shared for direct marketing use; AND (2) notifying the customer of his/her right to opt out and providing a cost-free means for the customer to exercise that right.

Any request for a disclosure required under this law should be sent to us via email at IT@iqair.com. Please note that under this law, we are not required to respond to a customer's request more than once in a calendar year, nor are we required to respond to any request that is not sent to the email address designated above.

1. Types of Information We Collect

Personally Identifiable Information (or "PII") means "personal information", as this term may be defined in applicable laws, and is any information that can identify or is linked to a specific individual, such as your name, mailing address, telephone number (including mobile number), email address, credit card number, debit card number, bank account number, and other financial account information, birth date, gender, occupation, personal interests, demographic, location and household information, etc. To the extent you voluntarily provide your PII to us, we collect such information. For example, we may collect PII from you (to the extent permitted by law): (1) when you sign up for one of our products or services, such as when you interact with our "Residential Help Me Choose Tool" and similar tools, where we might collect information that includes your name, e-mail address, your air quality concerns, the names that you've assigned to your areas or rooms in your home, your heating/cooling system type, etc.; (2) when you join one of our mailing or contact lists; (3) when you register to participate in an event sponsored by us (such as a contest, sweepstakes, giveaway, promotion, survey, concert, festival, community fair, etc.); (4) when you enter into a transaction with us, such as ordering a product from us through our online store; (5) when you use or interact with a product or service of the IQAir Interactive Platform; (6) when you provide or share information using a product or service of the IQAir Interactive Platform; (7) when you send information via message, chat, blog, post or similar functionality using a product or service of the IQAir Interactive Platform; (8) when you create, share or link your personal profile using a product or service of the IQAir Interactive Platform, including linking or associating your profile on a third-party site or platform with your IQAir account; and/or (9) when you submit a request or inquiry to us via the IQAir Interactive Platform or otherwise (each of the foregoing is referred to hereinafter as an "Identification Activity").

It is optional for you to engage in an Identification Activity. However, if you elect to engage in an Identification Activity, we may ask you for certain PII. Depending on the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide may be identified as mandatory and some may be identified as optional. If you do not provide the mandatory information for a particular Identification Activity that requires it, you will not be able to engage in that activity. In addition, if you use the IQAir Interactive Platform to send information to another person (e.g., a friend, a family member, etc.), we will also collect PII of that other person to the extent disclosed by you. We also collect the username and password for the email account you wish to import your contacts from, for example, and will only use it for that purpose.

Aggregate and Anonymous Information (hereinafter "AAI") is any information that cannot identify or be linked to a specific individual. For example, we may collect anonymous group data (demographics, online browsing habits, interests and preferences, etc.) about users of our Site and purchasers of our products, participants of our sponsored events and activities, users and members of the IQAir Interactive Platform, etc. (hereinafter referred to collectively as "our Customers"). We also collect aggregate traffic data pertaining to the IQAir Interactive Platform, such as: total page views in a given time period; total impressions per ad; average amount of time that visitors spend on the IQAir Interactive Platform (or a part thereof) each time they visit; average amount of time that visitors spend on each page of any one or more parts of the IQAir Interactive Platform; percentage of visitors from a certain geographical area, etc. Moreover, we may combine "User Activity Information" (as described below) about you and other users of the IQAir Interactive Platform to generate aggregate information that reflects activities, habits, preferences, interests, etc. about our users as a group.

We also collect location-based information such as zip or postal code, city and state or province name. In addition, we may take PII and make it non-personally identifiable, such as by aggregating your information with information about other individuals, or by removing personally-identifiable elements (such as names) so as to "anonymize" or "de-personalize" your information, in accordance with applicable laws.

User Activity Information

(hereinafter "UAI") refers to information we collect about user activities on the IQAir Interactive Platform. For example, our web servers automatically collect and log "clickstream data" for all visitors to IQAir.com, such as IP addresses (which are numerical numbers that are automatically assigned to users' computers and mobile devices when they are surfing the Internet), page requests, pages visited, content viewed, clicks and search queries made, etc. We also use cookies and similar technologies to collect UAI on the IQAir Interactive Platform (see Section 5 below for more information).

If and to the extent we use any UAI in a manner that identifies a specific user individually (e.g., if we are able to link or associate such information with a user's name or address), it will be treated as PII. Otherwise, all UAI will be treated as AAI.

2. What We Do With the Information

As a general matter, subject to applicable privacy laws, we use information (PII and AAI) collected from and/or about our Customers to improve our products and services so that they are appealing to as many people as possible, to administer and maintain operations of the IQAir Interactive Platform, to offer, market and advertise products and services (including those from third parties outside IQAir with whom we do business (hereinafter referred to collectively as "our Business Partners")) to our Customers, to administer and manage transactions and relationships with our Customers, and to personalize user experiences for our Customers.

2.1 Our Own Use of Information

2.1.1 Transactional, Administrative, and Customer Relation Purposes: If you provide information to us in connection with an Identification Activity, we will process and use your information for all purposes related to that activity, including communicating and interacting with you in relation to your activity. For example: (1) if you sign up for a product or service of the IQAir Interactive Platform, we will use your information to set up, administer, service, and communicate with you regarding, your account; (2) if you register to enter one of our contests or sweepstakes, we will use your information to process your entry and to conduct and administer the contest or sweepstake (including communicating with you in the event you are selected as a winner); (3) if you use our Residential Help Me Choose Tool, we will use your information to help you select the IQAir product that we believe best suits your needs; (4) if you join one of our mailing or contact lists, we will use your information to send you or contact you with information that you have requested or that may be of interest to you; and (5) if you order a product or service from us, we will use your information to process and fulfill your order, to communicate with you regarding the same, and to provide customer service to you. Also, if you provide your email address or mailing address to us, we may use such address to send you notices of a transactional, administrative or relationship nature or as required by law, such as notification of a material change in this Privacy Policy and/or the Terms and Conditions for Use of Site, notification of an actual or suspected security breach that affects your information stored by or for us, public relations announcements, etc., at all times in accordance with applicable anti-spam legislation.

2.1.2 Marketing & Advertising Purposes:

(a) Interest-based advertising on the IQAir Interactive Platform: We may use your PII and UAI to provide to you interest-based ads (i.e., ads potentially relevant or tailored to your interests) about products and services of IQAir and/or our Business Partners. For example, we show ads inside and/or alongside the videos you watch on IQAir.com. Sometimes, these ads are based on the topics or subject matters of the videos you are watching. However, to make these ads as relevant as possible for you, we may infer your viewing interests based on videos you have previously viewed on IQAir.com, and may use this information to associate your browser with relevant interest categories and show you ads relevant to your inferred interests. For example, if your prior viewing habits on IQAir.com suggest that you are affected more by a certain type of environmental pollutant than others, you might see more ads related to products that we consider to be more useful for such pollutants.

(b) Email marketing: If you provide your email address or mailing address to us (such as by joining one of our mailing lists), we may use such address to send you product and service offers, promotions, and advertisements from us and/or from our Business Partners in accordance with applicable anti-spam legislation. For instance, if you are a Canadian consumer, we will ensure to either obtain your prior express consent, or that your consent can be implied under the applicable Canadian anti-spam law. See Section 3.2 below regarding how to opt out of our email marketing.

NOTE: The Federal Communications Commission has published a list of domain names used by wireless service providers to transmit emails to wireless devices here. Wireless service providers must add new domain names to this list within 30 days of activating them. If your email address contains a domain name on this list (after the "@" symbol), then we will treat your email address as a wireless email address. However, the mere fact that you can retrieve emails from your regular Internet email account on your mobile/wireless device, does not make your Internet email address a "wireless" email address.

2.1.3. Market Research Purposes: We may use AAI (including UAI and AAI derived from PII) to conduct market research and analysis for ourselves as well as for our Business Partners.

2.2 Disclosure to Third Parties outside IQAir

2.2.1 Disclosure to our Business Partners: Subject to privacy laws that may apply in your jurisdiction, we may disclose, sell, and otherwise provide PII, AAI and/or UAI to our Business Partners so that they may market and advertise their products and services (including, without limitation, retail stores, finance, real estate, insurance, travel, automotive, telecommunications, technology, electronics, health, beauty, food, beverage, sports, leisure and entertainment goods and services directly to our Customers. See Section 3.2 below regarding how to opt out of such information sharing.

Please note, however, that we do not knowingly disclose or sell any of the following more sensitive information (if and to the extent collected by us) to our Business Partners for their separate marketing and advertising purposes (except with your prior opt-in consent): credit card number, debit card number, bank account number, and other financial account information; Social Security numbers, or other government-issued identifiers; personal health and medical information; information about personal sexual behavior or orientation; information pertaining to children under the age of 13 at the time of collection; and information indicating the precise real-time geographic location of an individual derived through location-based services such as through GPS-enabled devices (hereinafter referred to collectively as "Sensitive Information").

In addition, from time to time, we may co-sponsor events and/or product/service offerings with third parties. If you participate in such co-sponsored events or offerings, any PII and UAI we collect from you based on your participation may be shared with our co-sponsors who may use such information for their own marketing and advertising purposes. YOU MUST CONTACT OUR CO-SPONSORS DIRECTLY IN ORDER TO OPT OUT OF THEIR USE OF YOUR INFORMATION FOR MARKETING AND ADVERTISING PURPOSES.

2.2.2 Disclosure to our Service Providers: We may disclose PII and UAI to our outside vendors and contractors who need to access such information in order to perform services (including, without limitation, transaction/payment processing, order fulfillment, contest/sweepstakes administration and prize fulfillment, data research and analysis, data collection and processing, data storage, data security, hosting and technical support for the IQAir Interactive Platform, and marketing and advertising support) for us (hereinafter referred to collectively as "our Service Providers").

Generally, we require that our Service Providers use your information shared by us solely for the purposes of performing services for us and that they maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of such information and not further disclose the information to others.

2.2.3 Disclosure under other circumstances: We may disclose PII and UAI to others if doing so is required by law or, in our good faith belief, is reasonably necessary to: (1) comply with legal process (including a court order or subpoena); (2) cooperate with law enforcement; (3) enforce this Privacy Policy and/or the Terms and Conditions for Use of Site; (4) respond to an emergency; or (5) protect the rights, property or safety of IQAir, one or more members of our Customers, and/or the public. In addition, we may transfer PII and UAI as part of our assets if we (or parts of our businesses) are, sold or transferred to, merged with, or acquired by, a third party at all times, in accordance with privacy laws that may apply in your jurisdiction. Upon such transfer, the privacy policy of the acquiring entity may govern the further use of your information.

2.2.4 Unrestricted disclosure of AAI: Given the anonymous, non-personally identifiable nature of AAI, there are no restrictions under this Privacy Policy on how we may use, disclose, sell, or otherwise share such information. For example, unless prohibited by subject privacy laws that may apply in your jurisdiction, we may freely share AAI with our Business Partners who may use such data for their own marketing, advertising, research, or other business purposes. We may also freely share AAI with our Service Providers in order for them to perform services to us.

4. Protecting Children

We take special care to protect the safety and privacy of children. All products and services of IQAir are intended for general audiences and are NOT directed to children. We do not knowingly permit children (and, in the U.S., children under age 13) to register on the IQAir Site for any product or service. We do not knowingly collect or solicit Personally Identifiable Information about Users which are children (or which are under age 13 if residing in the U.S.).

Children (and, in the U.S., children under age 13) should always ask their parents or guardians for permission before providing any Personally Identifiable Information to anyone online or through mobile devices. If you are a parent or legal guardian, we urge you to participate in your child's online and mobile activities and to use parental control or other Internet and/or mobile filtering technology to supervise your child's access to the Internet.

5. Cookies & Similar Technologies

A "cookie" is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from an Internet server and stored in your computer or mobile device. Generally, we use cookies to remind us of who you are, collect UAI about your activities on the IQAir Interactive Platform, tailor our products and services to suit your personal interests, estimate our audience size, assist our online merchants to track visits to and sales at their stores and to process your order, track your status in our promotions, contests and sweepstakes, and/or analyze your visiting patterns.

These are small electronic images embedded in web content (including online ads) and email messages and are ordinarily not visible to users. Like cookies, Web Beacons enable us to track pages and content (including ads) accessed and viewed by users. Also, when we send HTML-formatted (as opposed to plain text) emails to our Customers, Web Beacons may be embedded in such emails to allow us to monitor readership levels so that we can identify aggregate trends and individual usage to provide our Customers with more relevant content or offers. Web beacons in emails may recognize activities such as when an email was opened, how many times an email was forwarded, which links in the email were clicked on, etc. Web Beacons cannot be declined when delivered via a regular web page. However, Web Beacons can be refused when delivered via email. If you do not wish to receive Web Beacons via email, you will need to disable HTML images or refuse HTML (select Text only) emails via your email software.

5.3 DoubleClick's DART Cookie and Online Tracking and Advertising

Google, as a Third-Party Advertiser, uses cookies to serve ads on the IQAir Interactive Platform.

Such cookie is placed on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site that supports ads delivered using DoubleClick's ad-serving technology (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is a "persistent" cookie, meaning that it is saved into the cookie folder on your computer's hard drive and will remain in that folder even after you close your web browser. This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests ("interest-based targeting"). The ads served to you will be based on your previous browsing history. DoubleClick's DART cookie uses "non-personally identifiable information". It does NOT track Personally Identifiable Information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security number, credit card/debit card number, or other financial account information.

You can control many pop-ups by using free software available on the Internet or by disabling JavaScript on your browser.

You may also choose not to receive interest-based advertising from many ad networks, data exchanges, marketing analytics and other service providers by clicking here.

6. Data Security

Protecting the security of your Personally Identifiable Information that you share with us is of the utmost importance to us. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet or any mobile or wireless network and no data storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

By providing your email address to us (whether on the IQAir Interactive Platform or otherwise), you acknowledge and agree that we may notify you by email in the event of a breach of security involving your Personally Identifiable Information.

We urge you to keep your password in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also, remember to sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit.

7. Links to Third Party Sites, Services or Products

The IQAir Interactive Platform contains links to sites operated and maintained by third-parties, as well as links to products and services (including software) provided by third-parties. For example, the IQAir Interactive Platform may display third-party ads, and clicking on such ads will take you to the websites of those advertisers. We have no control whatsoever over such third-parties, their Internet sites, or their products or services. Once you enter a third-party site, this Privacy Policy will no longer apply, and any information collected from or about you on that third-party site will be governed by the privacy policies and practices of that third party. Third-party sites do not follow our Privacy Policy and their privacy practices may be substantially different from this Privacy Policy.
