Koko Home’s Data Collection Policy

As part of Koko Home’s (“Koko Home,” “our,” “us,” or “we”) initial launch, we are placing a data recording device (“Device”) into employee and paid volunteer users’ (collectively, “User” or “Users”) bedrooms. Please note that installing a data collection device in your bedroom is NOT REQUIRED, even if you are an employee. This is a volunteer only process, and we understand that everyone can have their own personal reasons to not do this.


This privacy policy (“Policy”) governs the information that Koko Home’s collects through the Device from Users or from other members of Users’ households whose information the Device captures. By using the Device and by signing the acknowledgement form, you agree to the terms of the Policy on behalf of yourself and other members of your household.


Please note that, because the default mode of the Device is to be on and recording information at all times, it may also capture information relating to individuals other than the Users (or members of User households) who have agreed to this Policy. Even in those instances, we will process the information we collect consistent with the terms of this Policy. You may choose to turn off recording through the Device at any time (as described in the “Your Choices” section below).


What Information Does The Device Collect?

The purpose of the Device is to monitor Users’ sleep quality by collecting radar and sound information, as well as information relating to other external factors, such as temperature, humidity, light, vibration, air quality, and pressure. In order for us to obtain the best results, the default mode is that the Device is on at all times and is always recording data, including sound information. The User may turn off the recording of data by utilizing the “Mute” or “Mute Other” functions (further described below under “Your Choices”).


How Do We Use The Collected Information?

We collect information through the Device in order to provide Users with information about their sleep quality. We also use the information we collect to improve the Device, conduct analytics and research concerning the Device, and enhance our products and services more generally.
We may share the information we collect with other entities to assist us with these purposes, in a manner that is consistent with the terms of this Policy.


How Do We Protect Your Privacy?

We take the following steps to protect your privacy:
We store the raw sensor recorded data only by a user ID and not by name, only approved employees may access any of this data, and only select approved employees may access the user ID to user name lookup table.
We anonymize all insights associated with your data (i.e., we do not share information that we derive from your sleep patterns in an identifiable manner).  
We only share your information outside of the company in an anonymized or aggregated manner.

Your Choices

You have the following choices with regards to the information we collect through the Device:
You may review what information is currently being recorded at any time through the display on the Device. Icons will indicate which of the mute buttons listed below are engaged.
By pressing the “Mute” button, you may pause audio/sound recording through the Device at any time.
By pressing the “Mute All” button, you may pause radar data recording, audio recording, as well as all other contextual sensors (i.e., information relating to the humidity or temperature of the room) at any time. The Device will not be recording any sensor data in this state.
You may contact us using the information below to delete specific windows of data from any sensor.
If you are an employee, you may request that we delete all of the information that we have collected through the Device.
