What is Personal Information and why do we collect it?
Personal Information is information or an opinion that identifies an individual. Examples of Personal Information we collect include: names, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers.
Our tracking service also obtains and stores real time and historical device location information and depending on the tracking device being used in your vehicle(s), vehicle identification information may also be obtained and stored on our system (e.g. an OBD2 device may read your vehicle VIN number).
Stored Tracking History
We store up to 12 months of tracking history for each tracked asset on a secure Australian based server. We take reasonable measures to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of the stored data, including but not limited to encryption, access control, and backup procedures. The company shall also comply with applicable laws and regulations regarding data protection and privacy. However, the company shall not be liable for any loss or corruption of data resulting from events beyond its reasonable control, such as natural disasters, power outages, or cyber attacks.
