Your personal information shall be used for one or more of the following purposes:
- Providing, processing, maintaining, improving, and developing our goods and/or Services to you, and Services provided through your device or by Aztech;
- Communication with you about your device, service, or any general queries, such as updates, device firmware/software updates, customer support, related information, and notices);

Below are further details on how we use your information (including personal information):
- Setting up your Aztech Account. Personal information you providewhen creating an Aztech Account on our web sites or through our mobile application is used for creating your account and profile page.
- Providing location-based Services. When using our mobile application, we use information about your location to determine the time zone of the mobile device from which you access or use the application. This will ensure that the application accurately displays the time and location to optimize user experience. You can turn off this feature at any time by going to device settings or by discontinuing your use of the application.
- Accessing devices. The authenticity of devices that are operated through the application must be verified. We therefore need to confirm the legal identity of the device by consulting the factory MAC and DID information. In addition, in order to connect the device to the network, it will need to be configured through the app. During configuration, you must enter the corresponding Wi-Fi name and password. This information will only be used to connect the device to the network. The Wi-Fi and password data you enter will be encrypted and stored locally on your device; it will not be uploaded to the server. In addition, you can access the device and delete this information at any time. We also need to analyze the device’s IP and network signal in order to determine the optimal network connection method. This will ensure the stability of the device network.
- Providing push Services. Account numbers and IMEI Numbers will also be used for the Aztech push service, which sends device notifications to the user. You can turn off this feature at any time by changing the preferences listed under “Message Settings.”
- Verification of user identity. Aztech uses EVC to verify user identities and ensure that hackers or other unverified persons are unable to log in.
- Collecting user feedback. The feedback you choose to provide is extremely valuable, as it helps us improve the Services provided by us. In order to track your feedback, we use the personal information you provide to contact you and for our record.
- Sending notifications. We may occasionally use your personal information to send important notifications, for example, notifications about the status of device malfunctions; your customized device push notifications (which depend on what additional equipment you have purchased); and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies.
