Privacy Policy

(May 2024)

This statement discloses our practices for gathering and processing of information we collect when you visit this website or use any services, devices or mobile applications Owl Labs may make available. We have created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy and the protection of your information.

A. General

1. Personal Information

We use the term “Personal Information” to mean both “Personal Data” as defined by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the UK General Data Protection Regulation (“UK GDPR”) and “Personally Identifiable Information” as that term is understood in the United States. In order for you to access certain portions of our website or services, we may require you to provide us with information that personally identifies you, such as your name, mailing address, email address and home and/or business telephone numbers or that is automatically collected from your device and browser (together “Personal Information”). If you communicate with us by email or otherwise complete online forms or the like, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information. You may choose not to provide us with any Personal Information. In such an event, you can still access and use much of the website. You, however, will not be able to access or use those portions of the website as well as services that require your Personal Information.

2. Data Integrity and Security

Owl Labs uses security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and/or alteration of data located on our systems. We implement appropriate measures and processes, such as using encryption when transmitting certain sensitive information, to help us to keep your information secure and to maintain its quality. We regularly review our security and related policies to adapt the technology as new threats evolve and monitor our systems to help ensure a high level of availability. If you have any questions about the security at Owl Labs, you can send an email to

3. Sharing and Usage

We will never sell or rent Personal Information with anyone without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law. However, we can share your Personal Information with third parties in order to:

  • meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request;

  • enforce applicable terms of service, including investigation of potential violations;

  • detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues;

  • protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Owl Labs, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.

If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or asset sale, we may be required to share your Personal Information but will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any Personal Information.

Otherwise, information submitted to or collected by us is only available to our employees managing this information for purposes of providing you with the services you requested, e.g., by contacting you and sending you emails based on your request for information. In addition, Personal Information will be shared with contracted service providers in order to provide you with our website, services or products (e.g., hosting providers to provide you with our website) or if required for any data processing where you gave consent (e.g., sending of newsletters) or that can be based on other legal bases (e.g., prevention of misuse of our services). Such service providers will process Personal Information on our behalf.

These employees and contracted service providers have been trained to handle such data properly and in accordance with our security protocols and strict standards of confidentiality. Although we cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration or destruction of data, we take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.

4. Transfer

Owl Labs may receive information from all over the world. Owlllabs will transfer the data to the US, Canada or process in the UK and Europe.. Consequently, your Personal Information may be used, stored and processed outside of the country where you entered that information. If we transfer your Personal Information to processors of Owl Labs or other third parties in countries outside the EU/EEA without adequate decision of the EU Commission, we will do so only on the basis of Standard Contractual Clauses or other adequate safeguards according to applicable law. You can request a copy of such contracts by contacting us.

5. Disclaimer

No data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be entirely secure. As a result, while we always use all reasonable efforts to protect the Personal Information you provide to us, we cannot guarantee the security of your information and the submission of data is thus at your own risk. Please be aware that in certain circumstances, it is possible that Personal Information may be subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or orders.

6. Children's Privacy

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act or other applicable laws on the protection of minors restricts the collection and use of Personal Information pertaining to children under a certain age (age 13 under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act; age 16 under UK GDPR and EU GDPR, unless EU member state laws provide for a different age). We do not allow such children to register as users and will not knowingly collect or solicit Personal Information from anyone under such age. No one under such age should provide any Personal Information on or through this site or otherwise. In the event we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child under the minimum age, we will terminate the account and delete the information. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under minimum age, please contact us at

7. Consent and Notification of Changes

By using the website or any Owl Labs’ services, you agree with the collection, use and storage of your information by us in the manner described in this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time. If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on our website so our users are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

C. Data processed when using our products and services

1. Data processed for using Owl products, the Owl app as well as "The Nest"

Owl Labs provides technologies for smart conferencing that is powered by AI. In its products, Owl uses technologies such as 360° cameras, microphones and speakers to allow users to connect via external video conferencing software such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom. For this purpose, Owl products offer special features such as motion and voice-activated focus on speakers, panoramic views of everyone in the room as well the option to capture notes on whiteboards in real-time and share it with colleagues.

Owl products are designed in a way that they can be used without in-depth technical knowledge. For this purpose, Owl offers smartphone/tablet/desktop computer applications for the initial setup, configuration and control of the Owl products. In addition, Owl offers an online management console, called "The Nest", that allows more advanced settings such as MHQ Zoom Integration, the option to add team members and to grant administrator rights to users as well as the possibility to display connected devices' online status, serial numbers, software versions, location and information about whether they are currently used in conference calls. "The Nest" also allows to check if any devices need firmware updates as well as how Owl products are used over time (in how many meetings and with how many participants in average).

To provide our users with such functionalities, the Owl devices process Personal Information, including:

  • content data such as images captured by the cameras and audio captured by the microphones;

  • user data such as names and email addresses of registered users;

  • data collected from Owl products such as IP addresses, serial numbers, firmware versions and the connection status of Owl products;

  • data collected from end user terminal devices on which the Owl apps are installed and used such as IP addresses, device identifiers, software versions of the Owl apps.

While camera and audio data are processed directly in-device, some Personal Information are sent to and processed by Owl Labs servers, in particular to provide users with remote management functionalities, e.g., through "The Nest".

2. Additional analytics data processed with your consent

With your consent, you may also allow Owl products to collect device usage data (information about the devices used such as model names, software versions, serial numbers, information about how often the devices were used) as well as meeting analytics (how many persons in average did participate in meetings) that will be used by Owl Labs to improve its products. Please note that no audio or camera image data will be used for such purposes.
