Last Modified: December 2021

We value your privacy. The following Privacy Policy Supplement (“Policy Supplement”) explains the privacy practices of Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company, Division of Panasonic Corporation of North America (“PCEC” or “us” or “we”) when we collect information from you (“you” or “your”) when you use PCEC’s smart appliances (“Smart Appliances”).

Our Smart Appliances are designed to interoperate with Amazon Alexa-compatible devices and its Alexa software application and service (collectively “Alexa”) to respond to voice commands made through Alexa to the Smart Appliance (the “Alexa Integration”). This Policy Supplement addresses Usage Information we collect when you connect a Smart Appliance to Alexa through the Alexa Integration.

This Policy Supplement is part of Panasonic’s Website Privacy Policy and forms part of our Smart Appliance Terms of Use. For information on how we collect, use and share personally-identifiable information, please see our Website Privacy Policy.

Usage Information We May Collect

When you connect our Smart Appliance to Alexa through the Alexa Integration and use it to issue voice commands, we may collect certain information about the use and operation of the Smart Appliance (“Usage Information”). Usage Information is de-identified and anonymized so that it does not identify you as an individual. It may also be aggregated with similar data from other users and analyzed. For example, we may analyze Usage Information to determine how many Smart Appliances are activated in a certain geographic region or the time of day when Smart Appliances are typically used and for how long.

How We Use the Information

We may use the Usage Information we collect in a number of ways, including:

  • To improve our products and develop new products and offerings
  • To improve product performance
  • To perform maintenance, update, bug fixes and repair services
  • To comply with law, including our legal compliance responsibilities
  • To protect our legal rights or the rights of our other customers or third parties
  • Any other use for which we obtain your permission

How We Share Usage Information

We may share Usage Information:

  • With our affiliates, business partners, suppliers and customers
  • With our attorneys, accountants and other professional advisors
  • With third-party product designers, developers and manufacturers
  • With third-party technical support contractors
  • With third-party advertising and marketing companies
  • To respond to a government request
  • In response to any legal process that we receive
  • In an emergency to protect security or the health and safety of any person or the public

Transfer of Usage Information in Certain Corporate Events

We may transfer Usage Information in a corporate reorganization among our affiliates, in a corporate merger, acquisition, divestiture or sale of our assets, in a bankruptcy or similar event in which Usage Information is transferred or disposed of as a company asset.

Changes to Our Policy

We reserve the right to modify this Policy Supplement by posting an updated version at this location. If we significantly change how we use your Usage Information, we will notify you and obtain your consent as required by law. Otherwise, your continued use of the Alexa Integration constitutes your acceptance of the latest version of the Policy Supplement posted by us.

Your Relationship with Amazon

This Policy Supplement governs our relationship with you solely in connection with your use of the Alexa Integration. Your relationship with Services, LLC (“Amazon”) and the terms of use and privacy policy governing the Alexa service constitutes a separate agreement solely between you and Amazon. We are not part of your relationship with Amazon.
