Privacy Policy

This policy applies to all information collected or submitted by Hesperus app.

Collection of Information

Hesperus tries to minimize the amount of data it collects to be functional. Without your permission, Hesperus will not collect or share any of the home information (including name of your homes, rooms, zones and accessories, content of scenes, schedules and actions) with the developer. However, to help the developer better improve the app and understand the usage of the app, by granting Hesperus access to your home data, you understand that Hesperus may collect and share basic usage information (like iOS version, when the app launches) with the developer. When "Use Enhanced Metadata" is enabled, Hesperus may collect and share the basic accessory information (like manufacturer, model, firmware version and accessory attributes) with the developer. Those information will be anonymous and will only be used to match updated accessory metadata.

When creating an account in Hesperus community, you will be asked to provide an email address, a password and a display name. The email you provide is only used for logging in, resetting password and communicating about proposal you submitted via Hesperus app. The provided password is being stored in hashed form and no plaintext version of the password is being stored on Hesperus's server.

Information Usage

We use the information we collect to improve our website, apps, and customer support.

We will not share your personal information with outside parties unless it's required by law enforcement with appropriate documents.

We may share anonymous, analytical statistics with outside parties, such as the number of people with "Update Accessory Metadata" enabled activates a particular accessory model.
