Keeping Your Data Secure
Protecting your data starts with our Automile hardware devices (“Hardware”). When data is transmitted from the Hardware to our cloud service we use best-in-class 256-bit wireless encryption. All data collected by our Hardware is securely hosted on our servers, but is owned by you. You can access this data through our web interface, smartphone apps and developer API. If at any point you decide to stop using Automile, simply contact us and we will permanently delete your data from our servers.
What Data Does Automile Collect and for What Use, and What is the Legal Basis for it?
Automile collects data about you and your vehicle to provide our Service through our Hardware and using our Apps. This includes vehicle data gathered with our Hardware, personal information you provide as a user of our web interface or mobile applications, or when you send us an e-mail or submit a job application, information gathered while visiting our Sites, and personal information required for the processing of payments.
We will handle your personal information in order to comply with the contractual obligations we have under our agreement with you. We may also rely on our legitimate interest to handle your personal information (such as for administrative purposes, service improvement or to maintain a high level of security) or we will handle it as required by law.
Once connected to your vehicle, our device collects information about your vehicle, which is securely transmitted to our cloud service. Information collected by the Automile Box includes fuel consumption, GPS location, vehicle diagnostic information, and triple axis motion detection. This information enables us to provide you with insights, as well as accurate and fully tax-compliant mileage logs.
We collect personal information on our web interface and mobile applications, when you visit our Sites or request our help, apply for a job or communicate with us via social media, like user names, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, and mailing addresses. We will only collect personal identification information from you if you voluntarily submit such information to us. We will use this information to provide you with information, products and or Service that you request from us, to assess your eligibility for initial employment, or to carry out our obligations arising from any agreements entered into between us. This processing is necessary also to serve our legitimate interest. You may at any time decline to supply personal information, except that it may prevent you from engaging in certain features of our Service.
Automile takes comprehensive measures to ensure our platform, our customers, and their user data are safe from all cyber security threats. All communication through our web interface uses SSL/TLS for server authentication and data encryption. Even so, we cannot guarantee that a data breach will never occur. Any personally identifying information you elect to share on our web interface or in our mobile applications as a user will be at your own discretion.

How Long do We Keep the Data?
We maintain information about you for as long as we provide services to you, and as long it is required for us to perform any related business activities. After your information is no longer necessary for our business purposes, we will destroy the information unless we have agreed with you that we should keep the information, or a court or administrative order is made to preserve the information, or if it is otherwise stipulated by law.
Who Can See the Data Automile Collects?
Automile personnel access user data in order to provide Services and customer support to our users. We have developed internal processes to govern the way our personnel accesses user data. Internal access to this data is supervised to ensure user privacy.
From time to time we may work with third parties in the operation of our business or to administer services on our behalf, such as processing payments or sending out newsletters. In these instances, we may share some user information required to perform said operation or service. Such third parties may be situated in a country outside of EU/EES. Of course, we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal information is at all times treated securely and in accordance with applicable data privacy laws.
Automile may also disclose your personal information to the extent that it is required to do so by law, in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings, and in order to establish, exercise or defend its legal rights. In the event of legal demands for user data, we will attempt to notify said user unless prohibited by law or court order.
