This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read it carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.
Please be aware that it is your responsibility to alert all passengers and people you authorise to use your Vehicle or the InControl Services about the privacy practices described in this policy (including the ways in which we may collect and use data from the Vehicle and/or relating to Users of the Vehicle).
INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT FROM YOU
We may collect and process the following data about you and/or your Vehicle:
• Submitted Information: information that you provide by filling in online forms during the setup of your InControl Services account or which the authorised Land Rover retailer (from whom you purchased or leased the Vehicle) provides on your behalf when setting up your InControl Services account. This includes your name, address, telephone number (including mobile number), e-mail address, language preference, password and PINs for your InControl Services account and your preferred authorised Land Rover retailer.
• Additional Information:
• if you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence; and
• details of transactions you carry out through the My Land Rover InControl website.
• Device Information (including location): We may collect information about the Device or any computer you may use to download a copy of the InControl Remote Smartphone App onto your Device, including the operating system and version, the InControl Remote Smartphone App installation unique identifier, the Device’s locale settings and country code. The InControl Remote Smartphone App may also collect information about the location of your device and tokens and username for identification, but this information will not be transmitted to us. You can restrict the access to, or collection of, your Device’s location by disabling the location features of your Device or by not using the features of the device that require location information. We may associate Device Information with Submitted Information and will treat the combined information as personal data in accordance with this policy for as long as it is combined.
• Vehicle Identification Information: information about the vehicle that you have registered to the InControl Services (“Vehicle”) including the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), the make, model, model year, features, registration number, date of purchase or lease, and the authorised Land Rover retailer from whom you purchased or leased the Vehicle. We may associate Vehicle Identification Information with Submitted Information and will treat the combined information as personal data in accordance with this policy for as long as it is combined.
• Location Information: information about the last parked location of the Vehicle. We will also collect and process other information about the Vehicle at any point in time as part of the “journey tracking” function (“Journeys”) of the InControl Services. The information that we will collect and process as part of this function is set out in “Journey Information” below. The last parked location of the Vehicle will always be tracked and cannot be switched off. You are able to switch off Journeys at any time via the My Land Rover InControl website and the InControl Remote Smartphone App. If, however, the “SOS Emergency Call”, the “Optimised Land Rover Assistance” or the “InControl Secure” function is activated, real-time location data relating to the Vehicle will be sent to the relevant service provider and/or emergency services (as appropriate) even if you have switched off Journeys. Please note that the “InControl Secure” and the “SOS Emergency Call” functions will be activated automatically upon the occurrence of a relevant trigger event such as your vehicle being towed away with the ignition off or the deployment of your vehicle’s airbags respectively. For full details of the relevant trigger events please refer to the Vehicle handbook. Even if you have not activated your InControl Services account, the vehicle may automatically initiate a call to contact emergency services via the “SOS Emergency Call” function or you may be able to manually initiate a voice call for emergency services via the “SOS Emergency Call” function. The occurrence of such call may transmit information, including vehicle location, time, and a vehicle identifier to us and/or our emergency service providers. We may associate Location Information with Submitted Information and will treat the combined information as personal data in accordance with this policy for as long as it is combined. By accepting the terms of this policy you consent to the use of the Location Information in this manner. You have the right to withdraw your consent to us associating location data relating to the Vehicle with Submitted Information at any time by contacting an authorised Land Rover Retailer but please note that this may mean that you will no longer be able to receive the “SOS Emergency Call”, the “Optimised Land Rover Assistance” or the “InControl Secure” services.
• Journey Information: information about your journey sent from your Vehicle including the journey distance, real-time location, the duration of the journey, the average speed and data about the efficiency of the journey. As referred to above, you can turn off Journeys via the My Land Rover InControl website and the InControl Remote Smartphone App. This will prevent any of the above information from being sent from the Vehicle (except for the last parked location). As stated above, if, however, the “SOS Emergency Call”, the “Optimised Land Rover Assistance” or the “InControl Secure” function is activated, location data of the Vehicle will be sent to the relevant service provider and/or the emergency services (as appropriate) even if you have switched off Journeys. We may associate Journey Information with Submitted Information and will treat the combined information as personal data in accordance with this policy for as long as it is combined.
• Vehicle Operation Information: this includes information relating to the Vehicle being involved in an accident such as the fact that the airbags have been deployed or the sensors have been activated. We will also collect and process other information about the operation of the Vehicle including, but not limited to, the fuel amount, the distance to empty status, the odometer value, the distance to service status, the coolant level, the washer fluid level, the brake fluid status, the brake pad wear, the tyre pressure, tyre pressure sensor failure, engine malfunction, the oil level, the door and window status, the cab open, boot open, bonnet open status, the battery voltage and whether the alarm is armed or sounding.
