Please read this Privacy Policy Carefully to understand how CamStreamer as a data controller, its subsidiaries and affiliate companies (collectively referred to as “CamStreamer”) use and protect the information you provide. This “Privacy Policy” applies to the processing of personal data through any SW for Axis cameras downloadable or otherwise available from the CamStreamer site and any CamStreamer services purchased or otherwise available from CamStreamer site and to this CamStreamer.com website and any variations or successor (collectively as the “CamStreamer Services”). This Privacy Policy applies to all users of CamStreamer Services and to all CamStreamer´s customers worldwide.

1 What information CamStreamer collects from you

CamStreamer may collect two (2) types of information about you: Personal and Non-Personal.

1.1 Personal Information
Personal Information refers to information that lets CamStreamer know the specifics of who you are, and which may be used to identify, contact or locate you (e.g. name, e-mail address, phone number, contact address or your bank account number). CamStreamer may collect Personal Information when you use the CamStreamer Services including, without limitation, download or purchase licenses, filling out surveys, pay invoices, corresponding with CamStreamer, or otherwise volunteering information about yourself.

1.2 Non-Personal Information

CamStreamer may collect Non-Personal Information through methods discussed above as well as automatically through use of industry standard technologies described further below. This information may be, however, linked to your Personal Information and in such case may also identify you.
