1. Introduction

This Privacy Policy applies to the Fumis WiRCU application (“the Application”), which together with the Fumis WiRCU device forms the WiRCU product (“the Product”).

In this Privacy Policy “we” or “us” means Fumis.

In order for us to provide you with a fully functional Product, we need to process certain personal information held electronically or otherwise. We will always treat this information in an appropriate manner and in accordance with the relevant data protection laws. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to explain how we collect your personal information, what we do with it, how we look after it and how long we keep it for.

2. We need to hold certain information about you so that we can support the use of the Product

We only collect and store information directly associated with the operation or functionalities of the Product or its connected devices.


What personal information?Why do we need it?
Contact information (e.g. your full name, home or business address, phone number, e-mail address)     • So that a unique ‘ticket’ can be formed based on the submitted data in order to help our customers receive comprehensive support and the best possible user experience, as explained in the following bullets below,
    • So that we know who our customers are when we provide them with our technical support in regard to operation of the Product or any device connected to the Product,
    • So we may present you with suggestions given by third parties in regard to operation of the Product, offers to provide services or products in this regard and to promote upgrades or customer services or otherwise support operation of the Product (eg. based on the historical overview of the operating of the heating appliance, since the submission of the data based on which the user’s ticket was created).
MAC address of the Fumis WiRCU device     • So that you can connect the Application with your Fumis WiRCU device through the cloud,
    • So that we can identify the Product in order to provide you with support,
    • So that you can access information on previous settings of your heating appliance, as well as receive better technical support.


The Product may use tracking technologies that monitor activities of the Product and log them into your device or externally. Such data may indicate your preferences and/or activities in regard to operation of the Product or its connected devices.

Legal bases for processing personal data under EU data protection laws

If you are based in a European country where the EU rules on personal data protection apply, we need to tell you the legal basis on which we process your data.

We rely on the following legal bases:

  • so that we can fulfil our contractual obligation in connection with the Product (for example, in order to provide you with technical support under the purchase agreement),
  • so that we can comply with laws and as necessary to resolve disputes and enforce our agreements,
  • legitimate interests – so that we can operate an efficient and effective business but not at the expense of your overriding privacy interest.

We do not solicit any personal information from children. If you are not of legal age (18 years or older), please note that you are not authorized to use the Product without parental of guardian supervision.

Automated decisions

We do not use your personal information in an automatic way.

3. We sometimes have to share your information

3.a) Sharing your information within our organization

Your personal data will be processed by us for the purposes explained above. In doing so, some of our people, including managers, sales department, technical support etc., will have access to your personal data as needed to carry out their duties. Other departments may also need to use your personal information to carry out their responsibilities.

3.b) Sharing your information with trusted third parties

Like any large business, we sometimes use third party service providers to enable us to carry out our business activities more effectively and to ensure consistency in the way we operate. In some cases, these third parties will have access to your personal data.

Where we use third parties to process your personal data on our behalf, we will always carry out checks to ensure that there are appropriate protections for the safeguarding your personal data. We will also monitor the performance of these third parties (and their approved subcontractors) to ensure that your personal data remains secure.

Any third-party service provider that we instruct will only process your personal data for the same purposes for which we may use your personal data (as outlined above), as is strictly necessary to perform its obligations to us, and in the ways instructed by us.

Our key service providers at the date of this notice are as follows:

  • ATech Elektronika d.o.o. (Slovenia) – appointed to provide technical support for the Fumis WiRCU device hardware and the Application software,
  • nChain d.o.o. (Slovenia) – appointed to provide technical support for the Application software,

3.c) Sharing information with the developer of the Application

Such data is processed solely for the purpose of statistics and research, automatically anonymised and entered in Atech’s databases in such way it can no longer be associated with you. By doing so, Atech will be able to analyse customer software usage for its own purposes and develop the design and layout of the Application in order to improve the content to better match the interest of our users, including you. The described data may be collected also before the user’s submission of the data based on which the ticket shall be created (see point 2 of this Privacy Policy).
