The information we gather or process is used solely for core functionality of Homey and to improve the quality and security of our service.
Your name, email, account settings, and extension data are transferred and stored securely, solely for your usage within our extension and not shared with any other third parties, except as specified in this policy.
To upgrade to Homey Premium, your credit card number, credit card expiration date, security code, name, country and postal code are required. All payment processing is done through a GDPR compliant third party (Paddle, Inc.). When paying by a credit card, the card details do not pass through our servers, they are sent directly to Paddle and are stored securely, as per their Privacy and Security policies.
To perform requested changes to or inquiries about your Homey account (cancelling, refunding, or changing payment details), authorized members of Homey’s support team could potentially view payment-related information contained in Paddle’s databases (this is limited to billing name, billing address, postal code, the last four digits of credit card(s), and credit card expiry date(s)) while accessing subscription information via Paddle’s payment dashboard. This information will only be accessed upon your request.
Chrome Extension API used within Chrome Add-ons and Edge Extension API used within Edge Add-ons have fine-grained permission levels that are enforced by the Web Browser, restricting information that our extension has access to within your Browser. The Homey extension can only access specific information that you have explicitly granted permission for.
Additional optional permissions may be requested when you enable specific features. When you enable a feature that requests an optional permission, your Web Browser will make it clear what permission(s) are being requested. The feature will be accessible once you choose to allow the requested permission(s).
