The Flume water sensor collects detailed data about Customer water usage and temperature from the water meter where the sensor is installed. The sensor collects data to detect leaks and abnormalities, and transfers the data to the Flume™ software application through your private home or business Wi-Fi network. This data helps Flume track water usage patterns and to create projections about future patterns of Customer water usage. The aggregated information may be stored on the Flume secure servers indefinitely. The Flume software application collects various data during setup and in the course of Customer usage. Flume collects location data and household information (e.g. number of residents) to improve water usage comparisons. Flume tracks application usage to monitor Customer experience and for improving the Flume software application.

The security of your PII is important to Flume. Our Service has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and/or alteration of all PII under control by Flume. Flume follows generally accepted industry practices to protect the PII submitted to Flume, both during transmission and once received. Flume will use trusted third parties to process payment information and Flume will only work with those entities that adhere to all applicable security requirements in accordance with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while Flume strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your PII, Flume cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Site, you can email us at the address below.
