Your deviceFor reasons of brevity, we use the terms "device" to refer to our "DoorBird Video Door Station" and "BirdGuard" products and "mobile device" to refer to a smartphone or tablet.
Information input during setup: When you install your device, you may be asked for certain basic information like your device name, description, ZIP or postal code, as well as where you’re installing it. This information is used to personalize your experience – for example, to tell you which device is triggering a notification.
Environmental data from device sensors: We collect data from sensors built into DoorBird Video Door Stations / BirdGuard cameras. These sensors collect data such as device temperature and ambient light. By recording this information, device can know, for instance, whether it’s dark and it should turn on night vision.
Video and audio signals and data: After you begin using your device, we may process information from your device so that we can send you alerts when your doorbell is pressed or when your device detects motion. This may include capturing and emailing to you portions of this data as part of a notification or analyzing the data to identify motion or other events. When you access our Cloud Service on a trial basis or a subscription basis, we will record and process video and/or audio recordings from your device. In addition, we will capture, process and retain video and audio data recordings from your device for the duration of your recording subscription period and you will be able to access those recordings using the Services during that time.
Technical information from the device: In order to improve your experience over time and help troubleshoot any problem you may encounter with device, we may record your device serial number, software version, and technical information such as Wi-Fi signal strength.

We will collect and store information that will allow us to save or share your content as directed by you through the Services.
Data protection and privacy laws in your country may impose certain responsibilities on you and your use of the device. You are responsible for ensuring that you comply with any applicable laws when you use the device.

Note in particular that recording and sharing clips that involve other people may affect their privacy and data protection rights. Also check the data privacy information in the installation manual of your device.
