3. Types and Sources of Information Collected:
Video Recordings: Our vehicle cameras record video of vehicle surroundings. These recordings may include images of you, your vehicle and its license plate, or other information that could be associated with you.
We carry out test drives with autonomous vehicles in order to test the systems we have developed under real conditions and to identify potential for improvement. This in turn serves the further development of the techniques used and thus the avoidance of accidents. In order to be able to evaluate the test drives carried out and the measured values determined afterwards for research and development purposes, our test vehicles are equipped with a video system, among other things. In addition to the driver's cab and the instruments located there, the installed cameras are also used to record the vehicle's surroundings. In the course of this, road users, license plates or other personal information may be recorded. The collection of this data during the test drives is essential to training vehicle systems to identify and react to road situations. This helps us address safety and performance considerations.
Promptly after receiving the video recordings, we alter the recordings via an automated process so that faces of individuals and license plates are not recognizable. We then delete the original recordings. The altered recordings are stored for up to 10 years, and we cannot reasonably identify individuals or vehicles from the recordings.
5. Disclosures of Video Information:
- We disclose video recordings to our affiliates for purposes of designing, testing, and improving vehicle systems.
- External recipients: We disclose the video recordings for our business purposes to the following types of parties.
a) External service providers that we use to provide services. We share video recordings with data storage providers and third parties that help us process and analyze the video recordings. These providers are permitted to use the information only for purposes specified by us.
b) Government agencies: We may share video recordings with regulatory bodies, law enforcement, or other government agencies where necessary to comply with law, court order, or legal request, or where we believe in good faith that such sharing is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, safety, or interests of us or others.
We do not sell or disclose video recordings to third parties for their own use.
