- Recipients of data transfers
The provider shall not sell, transfer, share or use your “Personal Information” or your “Installation Information”, except in the cases contemplated in this Privacy and Security Policy document.
In the event that the provider is bought, absorbed, or related in any way to another company, or enters into bankruptcy, it may have to assign its “Personal Information” and/or its “Installation Information”. In the event of being obliged to share such information and/or any other information related to the “Service” by the newly formed company, the new company will be governed by this Privacy and Security document.
Bandalux informs you that the LYNX service is based on enControl technology owned by the company AMPER S&C IoT, S.L., which is in charge of third level technical support and therefore has access to your information. The data processing carried out by this entity is regulated by a data processor contract between Bandalux and this company. Under no circumstances shall the processor subcontract services involving any processing of data by third parties without the prior consent of Bandalux.
- Protection of information related to your home or your company
The “Service” includes the reception of information on consumption values, time and environmental aspects of its installation, both from the measurement and control devices installed in the home/company and from external sources and the reception of event information from the security devices installed in homes/companies. All communication through a public communications channel dependent on the “Service” is securely carried out (encrypted).

- Security Measures
LYNX uses standardized secure communication technologies, including SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology and Website encryption (https). These measures are designed to protect your confidential information in electronic communications, thus minimizing the possibility of such information being captured and your identity or security being jeopardized. You can check that the communication through your browser is secure as the browser itself informs you of this. Passwords are stored in an irreversible encryption format.
All “Personal Information” is stored on servers protected against unauthorized access by firewalls or other technological means. The servers are located in secure locations, and only the provider’s employees and related agents have access, when strictly necessary, to the “Personal Information” and “Installation Information”.
Bandalux cannot guarantee that all data transmissions over the Internet are 100% secure. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the “Service” is provided “AS IS”.

All implied warranties, including but not limited to, marketing assurance or fitness for a particular purpose are hereby disclaimed to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Affected users shall be notified as required by the GDPR in the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a security breach and when such breach is likely to pose a high risk to their rights and freedom.
- Official means of communication
Bandalux shall send you information about important LYNX updates, notifying you by e-mail or through the App itself.
A virtual perimeter (geofence) is a circular geographic area centred on a given location. This default location is the location of the home installation. IOS and Android applications will notify the service when a user (their mobile) is crossing the boundaries of a perimeter.
The iOS and Android applications configure the geofence service offered by the operating system, by registering a specific latitude and longitude (which should coincide with the one of the installation) and radius. The number of geofences that can be used is restricted by the service offered by the Android or iOS operating system.
The operating system (phone) will notify the application when the (phone) enters or leaves the perimeter. The application does not obtain phone positioning points, it will only receive an “entering perimeter X” or “leaving perimeter Y”, and therefore the exact location is never being sent to the Service. The service does not maintain a history of perimeter entries and departures. Only the last notification sent.
The number of geofences is determined by the service offered by the Android and iOS operating system. Notice that Android may provide generic information about the APP in which the user is informed that the APP is accessing precise phone’s positioning (NETWORK and GPS). As stated before, our APPs do not access nor capture nor store GPS locations, just notify the Service when user crosses a given perimeter.
- Cookies and related technology
“Persistent Cookies” are small data files that are stored by the web browser on the personal computer or mobile device used to access the “Website”. “Personal Information”, such as such as a password, shall never be stored. The user can configure their web browser with different options related to cookies. If you choose not to use all cookies, you will not be able to access all the pages of the “Website”. “Secure Session Cookies” are cookies that are only stored in temporary memory rather than on the hard drive, and are deleted when the web browser is closed. To offer secure access to the “Service”, a unique session identifier is created; this session identifier expires when the user exits the “Service” or when a period of inactivity is exceeded. We may use different technology and monitor navigation to capture anonymous information about access to the “Service”. This is to help us to continuously improve the “Service” we offer and the user experience. Cookies or other technology may be used by third parties to help us manage our marketing efforts more efficiently (for example, e-mail servers, analytical tools, etc.). We select these service providers and coordinate with them to ensure that only anonymous information related to “Personal Information” or “Installation Information” shall be shared with us.
- Monitoring of the law
Bandalux may be required by the authorities to share your “Personal Information” and/or “Installation Information” in the event the provider is obliged by law to access said information. In general, the provider shall also access your “Personal Information” or “Installation Information” if considered necessary: (1) to comply with the law or a legal process in which the provider or the “Website” or the “Service” is included; (2) to defend and protect the rights or properties of the provider; or (3) to protect the personal safety of users of the “Service” and/or the “Website”. Given that it is potentially possible to use the “Service” negligently, the provider reserves the right to offer the relevant authorities any information related to such abuse, including any illegal activity carried out through its user account.
