What information will Manything collect about me?

When an account is created for you by your installer, Manything may receive personal information about you; currently this information comprises your name, username / email address and company name (where applicable).

When an account is created for you by your installer, Manything (and, if applicable, its contractors) is enabled to provide you with the products, services or activities you select.

Manything may also collect a range of information about the way you use the service, including without limitation device settings, app settings and usage.

To add your IP/network cameras to your Epcom Cloud account Manything scans the local network and return information about the devices on your network to its servers, this is so the Manything system can discover your available network cameras and add them to your account. Manything will store this device data in its database for the purposes of support and service improvement - it will not be used for any other purpose

Manything may also use cookies (see below for details) and collect IP addresses (an IP address is a number that can sometimes uniquely identify a specific computer or other network device on the internet) from visitors to the Manything website.

Manything does not collect or store personal information concerned with payment such as credit card numbers – all payments are processed and handled by your installer.
