DSC’s Services are typically provided by our licensed dealers and channel partners. If you are a customer of a dealer or channel partner, your information will be processed by DSC acting as a data processor or service provider and your dealer or our channel partner will remain responsible for the handling of any Personal Information that it collects from you and for compliance with any applicable data protection and/or privacy laws.
Collection of Information
DSC collects and stores certain Personal Information from or about you that can be used to uniquely contact, identify, or locate you ("Personal Information").
We receive and store information that includes Personal Information about you such as:
Some features of our Services use location information. This location information may include your current location or places you have recently visited. We also may aggregate this information for DSC's internal purposes and to provide information requested by you. If you do not wish for us to collect and store this information, do not enable these features.
Video and Audio Data
Some features of the Services may be used to record, store, view and process video and/or audio recordings. This may include capturing and sending you portions of this data as part of a notification or analyzing the data to identify motion or other events. In addition, if you have the recording features enabled, we will capture, process and store video and audio data recordings from your device and you may be able to access those recordings.
Data protection and privacy laws in your country may impose certain responsibilities on you and your use of security cameras and other devices with recording capabilities. You (not DSC) are responsible for ensuring that you comply with any applicable laws. For example, you may need to display a notice that alerts visitors to your business that they may be recorded using security cameras and other devices with recording capabilities. DSC takes no responsibility for your compliance with these laws.
Use of Information
We use the information collected through the User Interfaces and in connection with the Services, including Personal Information, that we collect to provide, analyze, administer, enhance and personalize our Services and marketing efforts for you and others, including to process your registration, your orders and your payments, and to communicate with you on these and other topics. For example, we may use the information that we collect for purposes such as sending you e-mails, push notifications or other correspondence concerning the Services, including health alerts for devices connected to the Services, messages about new features of the DSC Web Services, and customer satisfaction surveys.
We also may use information on an aggregated or deidentified basis. For example, we use alert-based information to understand how to better improve the DSC Web Services-ready devices.
Disclosure of Information
Your Personal Information may be disclosed to the following:
If you no longer want to receive certain communications from us via email, simply unsubscribe by using the unsubscribe options on the email. Please note that you cannot unsubscribe from certain correspondence from us, such as messages relating to your account transactions.
You can opt-in to receive device related push notifications from DSC. These include reports, health information and other similar information. If you subsequently decide you no longer wish to receive these notifications, you can edit these notifications from the User Notifications section on the User Interfaces.
If you wish to withdraw your consent altogether for DSC Web Services, you may do so by first logging in and then visiting the User Preferences page. From there, you can adjust your privacy settings.
In order to provide you with ease of access to your account on various DSC websites and applications, we implement technology that enables us to recognize you as the account holder and provide you with direct access to your account without requiring you to retype any password or other user identification when you revisit the websites or applications. You can choose not to take advantage of this feature on your computer by unchecking the box "Remember me" when you log in. To remove access to your DSC account from your devices contact, the device manufacturer for specific instructions. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account access information and for restricting access to your computer or device through which you access your DSC account. Where possible, users of public or shared devices should log out at the completion of each visit. If you sell or return a computer or DSC Web Services-ready device, you should log-out and deactivate the device before doing so. If you do not maintain the security of your password or device, or fail to log out or deactivate your device, subsequent users may be able to access your account, including your Personal Information.
Utilizing our User Interfaces from Outside of the United States
If you are utilizing our User Interfaces from outside the United States, please be aware that your Personal Information may be transferred to, stored or processed in the United States, where our servers are located and our central database is operated. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country, but please be assured that we take steps to protect your privacy. Our offices and data centers are located in the United States, so some of your Personal Information will be transferred to the United States in connection with your use of the Services.
DSC may use European Commission-approved "Standard Contractual Clauses" or "Model Clauses" and is also certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and U.S.-Swiss Privacy Shield Frameworks (as described in our Privacy Shield Privacy Notice) for the transfer of Personal Information from the EEA, the UK or Switzerland to the United States. To learn more about the EU-U.S. or U.S.-Swiss Privacy Shield Framework and to view our certification, please visit www.privacyshield.gov.
Right and Choices about Your Information
If you are an existing or potential end-user of the Services and have provided Personal Information directly to us, you may request to correct or delete your Personal Information by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are an existing or potential end-user of the Services, you may update and access information about your account, including your contact information and your communication preferences in the "User Preferences" portion of our website. You must be signed in to access "User Preferences."
You may also request a copy of the Personal Information that we hold about you. If you would like a copy of some or all of your Personal Information, email email@example.com or write to us at the address listed at the end of this policy.
Right to Withdraw Consent
Where we have collected your consent to process your Personal Information, you may withdraw your consent at any time. To do this, log in to your DSC Web Services account and edit your privacy settings from the User Preferences page. At the time your consent is withdrawn, your account may be closed.
We may share Personal Information with service providers that we have retained to perform services on our behalf. We require service providers to whom we disclose Personal Information to either (i) subscribe to the Privacy Shield Principles or (ii) contractually agree to provide at least the same level of protection for Personal Information as is required by the relevant Privacy Shield Principles. If the third party does not comply with its privacy obligations, DSC will take commercially reasonable steps to prevent or stop the disclosure of Personal Information to such service provider. If a third party to whom we have transferred Personal Information from the EEA, the UK, or Switzerland processes Personal Information in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, DSC will be responsible unless we can prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damages.
Right to Lodge a Complaint
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, DSC commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your Personal Information. European Union and Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact DSC:
- DVR Support Center, 23221 E Knox Ave, Liberty Lake, WA 99019, U.S.A.
You have the possibility, under certain conditions, to invoke binding arbitration for complaints regarding Privacy Shield compliance not resolved by any of the other Privacy Shield mechanisms. Refer to Annex I for additional information:
DSC has committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to JAMS, an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not resolved your complaint, please contact or visit JAMS (https://www.jamsadr.com/eu-us-privacy-shield) for more information or to file a complaint. The services of JAMS are provided at no cost to you.
California Residents’ Rights
If you are a California resident and a "consumer" (as defined under the California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA")), then the CCPA may provide you with specific rights regarding your "personal information" (as defined in the CCPA).
You have the right to request that businesses subject to the CCPA (which may include your dealer or our channel partner) disclose certain information to you about their collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. In addition, you have the right to ask such businesses to delete personal information collected about you, subject to certain exceptions. If you choose to exercise your rights, you also have the right not to be discriminated against and should not be charged different prices or provided different quality of services.
You can exercise your applicable CCPA rights by contacting your dealer or our channel partner. Where we act as a business rather than a service provider under the CCPA, you can exercise your CCPA rights by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you contact DSC with a CCPA request directly, we may forward your request to the dealer or our channel partner with which you directly interact, as appropriate. Please note that the CCPA requires us to verify the requests we receive from you when you exercise certain of the rights listed above. We may need more information when we receive your request before taking further action.
Do Not Track Requests

DSC has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of your Personal Information.
