This Privacy Policy only applies to the collection, use and sharing of Information obtained from the Connected Vehicle, the Products and Services, and information you provide related to such Products and Services, and does not apply to data collection in other contexts, such as: any other websites, applications, or other products or services that we may provide; any third-party websites or applications that we do not own, operate, or control; or features available through your Connected Vehicle’s infotainment system.

If the terms of this Privacy Policy are at any time unacceptable to you, do not provide us with any of your personal information through the Products and Services.

Prior to any transfer of personal information, we ensure to have agreements in place with third-party service providers to ensure they only use personal information as necessary and for the agreed upon purpose, to protect the personal information with security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information, and not to disclose it except as may be permitted by us, as required by law, or as stated in this Privacy Policy.

How Do We Protect Your Information?

We take data and information security seriously. We continuously strive to protect the Information against loss and unauthorized access or use by maintaining and continually updating our formal security program, which employs physical, organizational, and technical security practices to protect the Information, such as:

  • All data transmissions are encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
  • The Information is accessible only by a restricted number of individuals with special access rights to our systems.
  • We take numerous security measures to ensure the safeguarding of the Information, including:
  1. Firewall Protection: The office is secured by advanced hardware firewall and intrusion detection.
  2. Access Control Lists (ACLs): The office router enforces stringent ACLs to regulate incoming and outgoing traffic, enhancing network security.
  3. Virtual Private Network (VPN) Access: Employees must use a VPN (certificate-based and not Pre-Shared-Key) to securely access the office network and internal resources when working remotely.
  4. Secure Shell (SSH) Security: SSH access is strictly controlled using certificate-based authentication, with password logins completely disabled to prevent unauthorized access.
  5. Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): Company-wide MFA policies (using hardware security keys, Google Authenticator, or phone) are enforced, and employees are required to use their company domain emails (provided by Google).
  6. Cloud Platform Providers: We leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform as our cloud platform providers, both renowned for their industry-leading security practices.
  7. AWS Services: We employ standard AWS services to implement Internet of Things (IoT), Application Programming Interface (API) backend, file storage, and databases, ensuring robust security and compliance.
  8. Database Security: Databases are backed up daily, with encryption applied at rest and in transit (HTTPS) to safeguard data integrity and confidentiality.
  9. File Storage Security: File storage is secured using server-side encryption with Amazon S3 managed keys (SSE-S3) to protect against unauthorized access.
  10. Key and Certificate Management: Private keys and certificates are never exposed to users, and their exchange is secured using HTTPS, Advanced Encryption Standard  (AES) encryption and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) key exchange mechanisms.
  11. API Endpoint Protection: API endpoints are fortified with JSON Web Token (JWT) based authorizers (using AWS Cognito authentication/authorization service) or user API keys and are protected by AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF).
  12. Role-Based Access Control (RBAC): Implemented RBAC to ensure internal services and users only have minimum access to the resources necessary for their roles.

We store the Information for as long as reasonably necessary (i) for us to provide you with the Products and Services; (ii) for us to support all other uses we make of the Information as detailed in this Privacy Policy; and (iii) as required by law or legal process, or as may be needed in the event of anticipated or pending litigation. We have personal information retention processes designed to retain personal information for no longer than necessary for the purposes stated in this Privacy Policy or to otherwise meet legal requirements. We will dispose of information that is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected.
