Data protection policy for Audi connect

 

Legal notes according to the Telemedia Act for Audi connect.

Audi Canada collects, processes, transmits and uses certain types of personal data as provided for by law, insofar as this is necessary to provide informational and operational services for your vehicle on the data server ("Audi connect services" or "services") and to enable the user to use the service. Further information on the type, scope and purpose of this data processing is given in the following note on data protection for the services specified below. We therefore request that you read the following information carefully.

For the purposes of this data protection policy, personal data are considered to be information on your personal or material circumstances. This means information which could be used to help identify a person or which could be linked to a specific person. Audi Canada only collects, uses, processes or forwards personal data if this is permitted by law, in accordance with this policy, Audi Canada’s Privacy Policy or if the user has otherwise consented to the data collection, use, processing and/or transmission. You may access Audi Canada’s policy at https://www.audi.ca/ca/web/en.html#layer=/ca/web/en/tools/navigation/layer/legal/privacy.html

Please note that the services given here may not all be available in your vehicle or country.

You can deactivate the collection of certain personal data via the privacy settings. The deactivation means that services using these data cannot be provided and therefore cannot be used. Please note that the emergency call service cannot be deactivated using this function and still sends the data necessary to provide the services. In addition, the Audi connect key can, for safety and security reasons, only be deactivated via the privacy settings if no keys are assigned. This means that it will still be possible to use the Audi connect key if keys are assigned.

https://legal.here.com/privacy/policy/.

Automatic Map Update:

With this service, the navigation database can be updated online directly in the vehicle. To do this, the vehicle analyses which regions within a country (e.g. Ontario) are relevant for the vehicle and transmits this information to Audi's IT systems. If the customer agrees, the Automatic Map Update is then delivered and downloaded in the vehicle via Audi's IT systems. All this information is deleted in our IT systems when delivery takes place. We may use a service provider (HERE Europe B.V., Kenedyplein 222, 5611 ZT Eindhoven, Netherlands) to provide the service. The service provider does not receive any vehicle or personal data.

Traffic light information:

If you choose to activate Traffic Light Information service, we collect anonymized GPS data as the vehicle approaches a connected traffic light. In addition, we collect some services related data, such as the crossing timestamp of an intersection to verify and optimize the quality of this service.

We may also use or share your information in an anonymized or aggregate manner for purposes including research, analysis, modelling, safety, product or service improvement, infrastructure change or improvement (such as highway safety improvements, traffic light management, etc.) and aggregated information services such as traffic reporting.

Online roadside assistance:

The following data are used by the online roadside assistance service: the vehicle identification number (with which your vehicle can be clearly identified and attributed to a specific vehicle keeper), the time stamp for data collection, vehicle condition and diagnostic data, in particular mileage, oil level, clean diesel data (number of engine starts and distance remaining), distance remaining and time until next service interval, currently active warning lamps/messages in the instrument cluster, the number of a fault event (including time stamp and mileage for fault entry), fuel tank level, history of warning lamps/messages, charge level of battery, information on whether the driver activated the online roadside assistance with the call button or if he/she performed an online roadside assistance call offered by the system, HMI language setting, location data and direction, seat belt status, severity of crash, location of collision, remaining range and SIM card data.

To provide the online roadside assistance service, we process/use the data mentioned previously. This means that at the time you make an online roadside assistance call and confirm the transmission of the data from the vehicle to the Audi back end, the data and your call are sent to a call centre commissioned by us to deal with roadside assistance calls. However, only the minimum amount of information necessary to process roadside assistance calls properly is sent. The call centre agent receives information from the data sent so that he/she can help as quickly as possible. If necessary for roadside assistance, these data may be given orally to third parties such as towing companies. For documentation purposes, the call centre only stores the conversation history, mileage and vehicle identification number after the call has been completed and the issue dealt with; all other data are promptly deleted.

The service is activated automatically as standard and cannot be deactivated. However, we have ensured that your vehicle cannot be tracked in normal usage because of this service. This means that no electronic tracking can occur. The roadside assistance call can be cancelled again at any time.

Emergency call:

The following data are used by the emergency call service: the vehicle identification number (with which your vehicle can be clearly identified and attributed to a specific vehicle keeper), administration (information on whether the emergency call was made manually or automatically, whether the location information is reliable, the vehicle type and whether the call is an emergency or a test call), vehicle energy storage method (e.g. petrol, diesel, gas etc.), time of the emergency event, number of passengers in vehicle, language setting, severity of crash (measurement points: front, left, right and rear and if the vehicle has overturned), seating positions of passengers, door status. The vehicle positions before and after the emergency event are also stored in the vehicle. The last vehicle position before the most recent time that the vehicle was switched off is always stored in the vehicle, even if no emergency call event is stored. This means that at least the last known location can be transmitted to the call centre if an accident occurs but no current location can be calculated and transferred to the call centre.

The emergency call service is an emergency call that is either made automatically when internal vehicle sensors are activated or manually (by pressing a button) by one or more vehicle occupants. When an emergency call is triggered, the vehicle sends the data specified previously to our call centre, Robert Bosch GmbH, Robert-Bosch-Platz 1, 70839 Gerlingen-Schillerhöhe. The call centre establishes an audio connection between the vehicle occupants and the nearest emergency control centre (police, control room, traffic police) and transmits the data needed for the emergency response onwards as appropriate.

The data for processing of the emergency call are not sent to Audi but directly to the Robert Bosch GmbH call centre. In the vehicle, the individual emergency calls are logged in a ring buffer (limited to data documenting that an emergency call has occurred - not the content of the emergency call) and regularly overwritten. The call centre records the emergency call (voice call) and stores the recording (to allow for possible questions/callbacks in the vehicle) for a short period.

The service is activated automatically as standard and cannot be deactivated. We have ensured that your vehicle cannot be tracked in normal usage because of this service. This means that no electronic tracking can occur.

Audi service request:

This Audi connect service is a personalized service. This means that a separate and individual myAudi account must be registered and opened to use the service. You can configure the service in your myAudi account and transmit certain data and content required for the functions of your Audi connect services to your vehicle and also allow certain vehicle data to be transmitted from the vehicle to us (as described below).

To provide the Audi service request service, we process/use the data specified above so that the vehicle can proactively initiate the process of arranging an appointment for the vehicle to be serviced as soon as this is due. After the user has agreed, the vehicle transmits the vehicle condition and diagnostic data as well as the user's contact details (as entered by the user in his/her myAudi account) to the Service Partner specified in his/her myAudi account. The Service Partner then contacts the user by telephone or e-mail to plan the appointment. The data transferred serve to assist with planning. This means that the Service Partner can estimate the scope of the maintenance/repair job, order replacement parts in good time, plan for a replacement vehicle etc.

After the user has given his/her consent and the data have been transferred, the data relevant for the Audi service request service are stored for 3 months in the Audi back end so that an appointment can be arranged in this time.

Optimization of offers:

In addition and where necessary, we collect various technical function data from the assist systems, convenience systems, controls and/or control units together with ambient data (e.g. outside temperature, brightness) and information on length of the trip, vehicle speed, vehicle condition data (e.g. tank level or charge level, mileage), time of data collection and system usage data. We do this as part of campaigns running for a limited period to optimize our vehicle function offers and to adjust the systems to customer expectations. Positional data and other data are not transferred for these purposes. This relates to technical data on the condition of the vehicle which are transferred using a time-limited "session ID" generated randomly by the vehicle or another pseudonym, depending on the type of campaign. The campaigns are each checked in advance and require a minimum number of participating vehicles. We analyze the data without linking them to a specific driver or user. When doing so, the only data collected for an analysis are those required for the relevant evaluation. The vehicle does not permanently send data. We do not use these data to create profiles or to make evaluations on the basis of individual vehicles. You have the option to temporarily deactivate the transmission of certain types of data from your vehicle in the privacy settings at any time. However, this may limit the function of the connect services. If you wish to permanently (rather than temporarily) disable data transmission from your vehicle for the purposes of offer optimization given above, please contact our customer support.

2. Usage profiles

Insofar as this is permitted by law, we create usage profiles for the purposes of market research or to develop our Audi connect services so they correspond to customer needs. These usage profiles include, in particular, the technical data on the vehicle's condition transmitted to the Audi back end as part of Audi connect. The profiles are either created without reference to a specific person or by using pseudonyms. You can opt out of the use of pseudonyms at any time by contacting auditalk@audi.ca

3. Forwarding to service providers / no distribution to third parties

Insofar as is necessary to provide the Audi connect services, we forward the personal data collected and processed as part of Audi connect to the servers of these service providers. If personal data from users in the European Union are affected and transmitted to countries outside the EU/EEA (e.g. USA), we have taken appropriate measures to ensure an adequate level of data protection according to 95/46/EC and/or the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679.

We will not otherwise forward your personal data to third parties unless you have agreed to this or unless we are authorised or obliged to do so because of legal requirements or due to an order by authorities or courts. This can apply in particular when providing information for the purposes of criminal proceedings, danger prevention, or to enforce intellectual property rights.

4. Data security

Data security in the vehicle is a high priority for us. However, if information is transmitted via the Internet as part of Audi connect, the security of these data cannot be guaranteed. Among other things, we use up-to-date technical and organisational measures and currently implement recognised and tested mechanisms and standards from embedded security. We extend the security measures when we develop new functions so that the current data protection policy is fulfilled and so that we can guarantee (through up-to-date technical and organisational measures) the corresponding data security in the vehicle.
