When you browse community or other websites, you may need to register a TP-Link ID to get all features.

We have implemented measures, including encryption and TLS technology, designed to secure your personal data from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. In addition, we restrict the number of staff in charge with access to your personal data to the minimum level and frequently conduct training and education so that they comply with the confidentiality obligations with respect to your personal data.

While we strive to always protect the privacy of your account and personal data in our records, we cannot always guarantee it will be completely secure. The security of your personal data may be compromised by unauthorized entry, unauthorized use, hardware failure, software failure, and other factors at any time.


Your information will be transferred or transmitted to, or stored and processed in, the United States in accordance with the purposes stated within this Privacy Policy. Typically, the primary storage region is the region that is closest to the customer’s region, often with backups to data centers in another region. The storage location(s) are chosen in order to operate efficiently, to improve performance, and to create redundancies in order to protect the data in the event of an outage or other problem.

Please note that our Services are intended for and directed towards users who reside in the United States. The United States may have different privacy standards that differ from those where you reside. Please note that data processed in another country may be subject to different laws and may be accessible to government, judicial, law enforcement, and regulatory agencies in that country.

The data controller that is primarily responsible for your personal data may depend on how you use the Services and where you are. For example, if you register a TP-Link account and reside in the U.S., both TPUSA and its partner (including an affiliate) may control your personal data.. 


We retain personal data for different periods of time depending on the purposes for which we collect and use it, as described in this Privacy Policy. We will delete or de-identify personal data when it is no longer needed to fulfill these purposes unless a longer retention period is required to comply with applicable laws. There may be technical or other operational reasons where we are unable to fully delete or de-identify your personal data. Where this is the case, we will take reasonable measures to prevent further processing your personal data.


The Services may include links to third-party websites whose privacy practices may differ from ours. Your usage of any such websites is governed by the privacy policies of those websites and not this Privacy Policy. You should carefully review the privacy policy of any website you visit.
