The services provided by thePulse.com are related to the development of a community-type site about the use of smart home technology. Our intent is to foster a community that allows for sharing and working with others, in order to drive the community, as well as each of us individually, forward more quickly. By working with others, and advancing the best ideas forward more quickly, the challenges that we face in this early-adopter industry, may become less difficult.

This information may include an email address and password, identifying attributes from external logins, such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, and others. It may also include demographic information, intended to assist us in better understanding who we are serving, and to also provide a more welcoming and personal experience while your visiting our site. Other pieces of data, such as a birth date, may be used to provide special offers.
We also collect information through technical and analytical monitors. Services such as Google Analytics provide us with information on who is visiting our site, which pages they are viewing, which regions our viewers are from, and what devices are being used to view pages on the site. Also, the website services that are used to provide you with the services we offer, will produce log files to provide visibility to how the site is running and when we need to fix bugs that may be occurring while visitors are using the site.
We occaisionally use the services of third-party vendors, to deliver surveys, to track feature requests, etc. These third-parties may implement their own cookies for similar purposes.
As the site continues to develop, more details about the services that offered will be found on this page. One of these services that you can expect to find more details on, are the forums. Although the forums will be available to anyone anonymously, only members will be authorized to post in the forums.
