This Privacy Policy governs the use of the CYBEX software application BabyCam– Baby Sleep Monitor and SensorSafe (“Application”) for mobile devices.

BabyCam is a video and audio baby monitor application for your phone or tablet (two devices are necessary: a parental and a child unit). It is a tool to hear noise around your baby, to stream live audio and video, and to comfort your child remotely. BabyCam works with diverse communication channels (eg. 3G, LTE, WiFi) and uses secure communication, using end-to-end encryption.

SensorSafe is an application that connects your mobile device to the sensor technology located in the chest clips of your child’s seat. User can activate the application and connect to SensorSafe receiver (connected to OBD port of the vehicle or otherwise) when his/her mobile phone is within range of the vehicle and remains connected while the user is inside. User is notified, if one or more of chest clips have come undone, when a child is buckled in his or her seat for over two hours, and if a child remains fastened in his or her seat and therefore gets left alone after the driver has left the vehicle.

In USA: the application registers whether the car is in motion or has stopped for an extended period of time, and sends alerts if a child is still in a car seat.

In EU: the application registers when the user moves away from the SensorSafe receiver (eg. vehicle (OBD port)) and the Bluetooth connection breaks and sends alerts if a child is still in a car seat.


The Application is not targeted to minors and, hence, we do not intentionally collect, store or process personal information of minors.

If young people under the age of 16 wish to use our services and provide their personal data to us, this is only allowed if a consent by the parent/ legal guardian is given. This may be reached if the contact details of the parent/ legal guardian, including the statement on the consent, are sent to us. These data as well as the data of the minor will then be processed in accordance with stipulations of this Policy.

Access permission to camera and microphone

In order to use the features of the BabyCam (to hear noise around your baby, to stream live audio and video, and to comfort your child remotely) the Application needs an access to the camera and microphone of user’s device.

When installing the SensorSafe, we will give you an option to choose your model of the child car seat by scanning the bar code on the car seat box, in that way allowing the Application to select your car seat model automatically. Besides, users are able to customize their profile by using a camera directly in the Application to take a new photo. For these purposes, the Application needs access to the camera of user’s device.

In installation process or in using particular features of the Application, we will ask for your permission to access your device’s camera or microphone. The collected data will be used only for purposes mentioned above.

If you do not want us to access your camera or microphone for the purposes set forth above, you can revoke your permission in the settings of your mobile device. Please be informed, by revoking your permission to access your device’s camera or microphone, the functionality of the Application will be restricted or disabled.

We use a tool Crashlytics, owned by a business division of Google Inc., (herein referred to as “Crashlytics”) that provides us with information about the functioning of publicly released and beta versions of our mobile applications.

We use a messaging tool Firebase owned by Google Inc. that allows us to send you instant notification messages. These messages are essential part of our services and functioning of the Application (SensorSafe). We will notify you in cases eg. when one or more chest clips of your child’s seat have come undone, when a child is buckled in his or her seat for over two hours, and if a child remains fastened in his or her seat after the driver has left a vehicle. Firebase Messaging Service uses Instance IDs (it is unique ID to a particular app and device, that give Firebase services a way to refer to specific app instances) to determine which devices to deliver messages to. Firebase services encrypt data in transit using HTTPS and logically isolate customer data.
