Carrier Fire & Security Americas Corporation (“LENELS2”) is committed to protecting the privacy of users of its BlueDiamond mobile applications (“Apps”) and related services (“Services”). It is important that our users understand how we collect, use, and disclose Personal Information (as defined below).
This Privacy Notice describes our practices related to Personal Information collected through LENELS2’s BlueDiamond Apps and Services.
This version of the LenelS2 Privacy Notice makes updates to reflect the option for a user of the Apps to elect to save certain of their Apps settings and preferences in the BlueDiamond Cloud.
The Bottom Line:
We use your Personal Information to provide you with the Apps and Services.
Location services can be used for the Apps’ Pathways feature and other positioning features, but you don’t have to. When you use location services, that location information is collected by your device and shared with a third-party service provider, but LENELS2 does not have access to it unless you elect to back up your Apps settings and preferences to the BlueDiamond cloud.
You may elect to back up your Apps settings and preferences to the BlueDiamond cloud, including your Pathways and other positioning features’ settings and preferences, but you don’t have to. When you elect to back up your settings and preferences to the BlueDiamond cloud, LENELS2 does have access to those settings and preferences, but only for the purpose of hosting and making those settings and preferences available to you for use on a new or reset device and to provide technical support.
You can reach LENELS2 via email at [email protected], or by mail at 1212 Pittsford-Victor Road Pittsford, New York, 14534, U.S.A., with any concerns or questions about this Privacy Notice or your data privacy. Read on for more information.
What Personal Information does LENELS2 collect? How does it collect such Information?
“Personal Information” is any information that relates directly or indirectly to a natural person.
LENELS2 collects, uses, and processes your Personal Information in order to provide you with the Apps and Services and other services, products, or information that you request.
The collection of information, including Your Personal Information, will be transparent to you, and you will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to provide it. If you choose not to provide any of the Personal Information requested, LENELS2 may be unable to complete your transaction, or provide the information, services, or products you have requested, including but not limited to the Apps and Services.
If you are using the Apps’ Pathways feature or other positioning features, the Apps collect your physical location when the Apps are in use (such as via GPS); however, that physical location information is not transferred to LENELS2, but will be collected by LENELS2’s service providers. Note that any location settings and preferences you choose to create a particular, reusable Pathway will be backed up, if you elect to back up your Apps settings and preferences to the BlueDiamond cloud). (See “How may LENELS2 use and share location data?” below for more information on the Apps’ Pathways feature and positioning features and location data).
We might also need to collect other information for a specific form, feature, or other service that you may use or request. The content of such information will vary depending on the method of collection and the specific purpose(s) for which the information is being collected, but the request for information will be transparent to you and be specified as needed.
Except to the extent specifically requested from you by the Apps or Services, the Apps and Services are not intended to collect or process Sensitive Personal Information. As such, do not enter or store in the Apps any Sensitive Personal Information not specifically requested of you by the Apps or Services, including but not limited to any data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political affiliations or opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, union memberships, or genetic, biometric or health data.

- Provide requested information, products, items, or services, including the Apps and Services;
- Obtain your location data in order to provide requested information or services (but LENELS2 will not have access to that location data, only the service provider for location services will, however, any location settings and preferences you choose to create a particular, reusable Pathway will be backed up, if you elect to back up your Apps settings and preferences to the BlueDiamond cloud);

Where is Personal Information stored?
LENELS2 stores your information in the United States. However, because LENELS2, and its parent company, Carrier Global Corporation (“CARRIER”), are global companies with locations in many different countries, we may transfer your information from one legal entity to another or from one country to another within the LENELS2 and CARRIER group of companies in order to accomplish the purposes listed above. These countries include, at a minimum, the member states of the European Union, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Canada, and other countries, including some in Asia and Central and South America. We will transfer your Personal Information consistent with applicable legal requirements and only to the extent necessary for the purposes set out above.
CARRIER and LENELS2 rely on adequate contractual provisions, as well as technical and organizational security measures, to enable the transfer of Personal Information across borders.
Does LENELS2 use your Personal Information to contact you?
LENELS2 does not use the information collected through the Apps and Services to contact you.
If you choose to provide Personal Information to LENELS2 through channels other than the Apps and Services, LENELS2 may use the Personal Information you provide to contact you about products, services, promotions, special offers, surveys, and other information that may be of interest to you. If you prefer not to receive such communications, please use the “unsubscribe” function within the email, or let us know by sending an email to [email protected]. Also, LENELS2 will ensure that any marketing communications sent by electronic means will provide a simple method for you to opt-out or unsubscribe. Please note that if you unsubscribe from marketing communications, you may continue to receive communications about your account or transactions with us.
Does LENELS2 share the information it collects?
LENELS2 shares your Personal Information with our affiliated companies, such as companies in the CARRIER group of companies, and/or companies in which LENELS2 has control, through either direct or indirect ownership, solely for the purposes set out above.
If you use the Apps’ Pathways feature or other positioning features, the Apps will utilize location services, such as Google Maps® or Google Places®, in order to provide you with that service. This requires the Apps to share your Personal Information, including location information, with the service provider for location services. In addition, if you elect to back up your Apps settings and preferences to the BlueDiamond cloud, your Personal Information related to your Pathways and positioning feature settings and preferences will be stored on the BlueDiamond cloud and accessible by LENELS2 in order to make those settings and preferences available to you for use on a new or reset device. (For more information on the Apps’ Pathways feature, see “What is Pathways and how do the Apps use location data?” below).
The Apps use Bluetooth permissions to detect and communicate with nearby BlueDiamond readers.
The Apps use “read or write to external file storage” permissions to download and save the BlueDiamond credential certificate which contains device-specific “signatures” required to communicate with the BlueDiamond readers for door access.
LENELS2 will not sell or otherwise transfer or share your Personal Information outside of the companies identified above, except to:
- Service providers, dealers, distributors, resellers, agents, or contractors that LENELS2 has retained to perform services on our behalf or authorized to sell our products and services. LENELS2 will only share your Personal Information with third parties whom LENELS2 has contractually restricted from using or disclosing the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf, sell our products and services or to comply with legal requirements;
- To a facility subscribing to the instance of the Apps you are using, where such facility requests details of the SSID/BSSID data of Apps users at their facility for their own analytic purposes, which may include gaining a better understanding of how many, or which, of their Apps users are connected to which Wi-Fi networks within their facility. Such SSID/BSSID data will not be shared in a manner that connects it with an Apps user’s identity
- Comply with legal obligations, such as in response to a legitimate legal request from law enforcement authorities, courts or other government regulators or authorities, among other things;
- Investigate suspected or actual illegal activity;
- Prevent physical harm or damage or financial loss; or
- Support the sale or transfer of all or a portion of our business or assets (including through bankruptcy).
Your Personal Information will also be maintained and processed by our service providers in the United States, the member states of the European Union, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Canada, Asia, Central and South America and in other jurisdictions.
What is Pathways and how do the Apps use location data?
If you choose to use the Apps’ Pathways feature, you will have the opportunity to enable location services to create your own “Pathway”. You can also choose not to use the Apps’ Pathways feature or other positioning features and location services, but you will need to manually create and manually initiate your chosen Pathway in the Apps to use that functionality. Choosing not to use the Apps’ Pathways feature or other positioning features entirely will not decrease your ability to use other functions of the Apps or Services.
If you are using the Apps’ Pathways feature or other positioning features with location services, the Apps will collect location data generated by your use of the Apps’ software and the Services on your mobile device. The location data includes your set GPS location when you reach your selected location, and this GPS location information is kept on your mobile device and used by the location services provider, in the case of the Apps and Services, Google® (for Google Maps® and/or Google Places®, please review the privacy terms for those products if you have questions). In order to use the Apps’ Pathway feature, the Apps also requires access to your Wi-Fi status permission to determine your exact location. LENELS2 uses this location data to provide you the ability to use the Apps’ Pathways feature or other positioning features. LENELS2 will ask permission to collect your location data and so the collection of this location data will be transparent to you – you will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to provide your location data.
The Apps collect location data to enable the Pathways frequently travelled route feature and other positioning features with location services to function even when the Apps are closed or not in use.
If you elect to back up your Apps settings and preferences to the BlueDiamond cloud, your Personal Information related to your Pathways and positioning feature settings and preferences, including but not limited to your preferred or frequently travelled routes, will be stored on the BlueDiamond cloud and accessible by LENELS2 for the purpose of making those settings and preferences available to you for use on a new or reset device.
How does LENELS2 secure Personal Information?

LENELS2 has adopted reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard your Personal Information. However, due to the nature of Internet communications, we cannot guarantee or warrant that your transmission to us is secure. LENELS2 shall periodically re-evaluate the measures adopted to ensure that they remain reasonable and appropriate at all times, subject to the evolution of the industrial best-practices.

What should you understand about the third-party links that may appear in the Apps or as part of these Services?
In some instances, LENELS2 may provide links to non-LENELS2 controlled websites, which LENELS2 will make reasonable efforts to identify as such. LENELS2 does not control such third-party websites, however, and cannot be responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other websites. Furthermore, this Privacy Notice does not govern information collected about you by third parties.

Any Personal Information you provide to LENELS2 is only kept for as long as it is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, taking into account our need to comply with contractual obligations, resolve customer service issues, comply with legal requirements and provide new or improved services to users.
