Spirit of Our Privacy and User of Date Policy
We use data to improve our products, to personalise content, and to improve the customer service and technical support that we provide to customers. Using data outside of those parameters has no application for our business, and is not of interest to us. It doesn’t matter to us whether you’re John Smith of 123 Main Street or Jane Doe of 789 Front Street. What matters to us is that we continue to get better over time and build things that people love—and that we do right by all of our customers and conduct ourselves in a fair, respectful manner.
We’re opposed to sharing personally-identifiable information with third parties unless it’s with your permission and is strictly relevant to providing you a better experience with our products or services.
Why Share Your Data?
Sharing your personal data with us allows us to improve our products and the service that we offer to you. We may collect personally-identifiable information through the following:
- Using our connected lighting services including our Smarter Series;
- Using other connected home services that connect with our Smarter Series;
- Buying products on The Nanoleaf Shop (with local service in The Americas, Canada, Europe / Middle East, United Kingdom, and Asia-Pacific);
- Providing you with sales support;
- Letting you know about the latest and greatest software updates for our products;
- Improving our website/app through usage statistics;
- Knowing what products and services are truly important to you.

Our website uses a number of analysis services to help us identify patterns of behaviour, offer personalised content, and improve our products.

When purchasing items from the Nanoleaf Shop, you voluntarily give us your name, email address, payment information, billing and shipping addresses, and telephone number. We use this information solely for processing your order. If you have opted-in to receive marketing communications from us, we will send you promotional offers from time to time. You may unsubscribe at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the footer of any message. This prevents any promotional emails from being sent to you unless you explicitly request that we re-add you to a promotional list.
We use browser tracking cookies (or “cookies”), which are small text files that are placed on the hard disk of a computer by a website. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a website or web server that issued the cookie to you. We also use browser “log files” which record certain information when you visit a website, including your internet protocol (IP) address.
We may hire third-party service providers to assist us in the collection and analysis of this Browsing Data collected through cookies, but none of your personal information is disclosed to these third party service providers.
Where Is Your Data Kept?
Our Smarter Series also uses the latest in encryption technology to communicate using HomeKit and ZigBee.
How Does Nanoleaf Interact With Third Parties?
We will not disclose your personal information to third parties, except if, and to the extent necessary, in our good faith judgment, doing so is required: by law, for the transactional needs of facilitating eCommerce orders, for administering the Nanoleaf Perks program, or where you have given explicit consent.
For products that visualise audio and contain a microphone, the audio is not recorded or shared with third parties—it is visualised locally in realtime, on the device hardware.
While we design our products to be simple enough for use by all family members, we do not specifically target our products toward children under the age of 13. We do not intend to collect personal information on minors under the age of 13 and we encourage parents and guardians to supervise how children are sharing information online. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will make commercially reasonably efforts to delete such personal information from our database.
Your Decisions About Your Personal Information
You may stop receiving emails from us by clicking the unsubscribe link in the footer of any message. This prevents any promotional emails from being sent to you unless you explicitly request that we re-add you to a promotional list.
If you would like to review the personal information held by us in connection with your account; withdraw your consent for our use and disclosure of your information; request a list of third parties to which the Company may have provided your personal information; or amend your personal information, where possible, you can contact us at [email protected].
If you would like to close your account, you can contact us at [email protected].
If you contact us to do any of the things listed above, we may require you to provide sufficient personal information to allow us to identify you and tell you about the existence, use and disclosure of your personal information and this personal information will only be used for this purpose. If you contact us about your personal information, we will respond to your request within a reasonable time and at no cost to you.
