Processing your data
We believe privacy is about freedom and being able to decide for yourself how your data is used and by whom. This is why we have established our Privacy Principles:
Webfleet Solutions is all about helping our customers get closer to their drivers. Everything that we do is driven by this single, simple principle — because when you are closer to your drivers, everyone can make smarter decisions. In order for us to help you, sometimes we'll need to know some things about you. While we collect and use your data, we fully understand that you value your privacy.
We believe privacy is about freedom and being able to decide for yourself how your data is used and by whom. This is why we have established our Privacy Principles:
We operate according to the privacy laws applicable in your country. Because we are based in Europe, European privacy laws also apply. These laws are considered to be the most extensive in the world. They offer a high level of protection to you by only allowing us to use your data when the strict conditions of these laws are met. Our company policy on privacy and processing of personal data reflects these laws and we apply this policy globally.

We collect data from you or about you when you use our sites, our products, and our services. Precisely what data we collect depends on what you use and how you use it. In general, there are three categories of data we collect and use:
We also receive data from others about you when you have interacted with them, for example, when you have visited their websites or used their mobile apps. This data can include IP addresses, unique device identifiers, advertising identifiers, WiFi and Bluetooth MAC addresses, cookies, and other records of computer activity, as well as indicators of your behavior, interests, and demographic.
Our website offers you various features and services. It allows you to learn about our products and services. In our support section you can obtain support for our products. In order to improve our website and present you with information we think is relevant to you, and to detect malicious or fraudulent use, we also collect, aggregate, and analyze information on how you use our website.
You can use our website without identifying yourself. However, some parts of the website require that you log in with your Webfleet Solutions account. For example, the WEBFLEET platform requires you to log in to perform activities such as tracking vehicles in your fleet or sending orders to your drivers.
We use your data to improve our understanding of Webfleet Solutions users and those who are not yet Webfleet Solutions users. We do this by first aggregating data from or about you, data from or about other Webfleet Solutions users, and data from third parties. We then analyzing this data to derive insights about behavior and demographics. These insights are used to improve our products, our website, and our marketing efforts, including online advertising.
The data we use is the data that you have provided via our website and when signing up for a Webfleet Solutions account. This data does not include any of the data collected and used by Webfleet Solutions while you are using Webfleet Solutions products or services, for example, your location, navigation, or workout data.
The data we use also includes IP addresses, advertising identifiers, cookies, and other records of computer activity, as well as indications of your behavior, interests, and demographic. We also use similar data that we receive from others, including YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google.
If your vehicle is configured to connect to Webfleet Solutions services, it will collect information for the purposes of the WEBFLEET service while the vehicle is in use, in association with other equipment installed in the vehicle.
The following information is continuously collected: vehicle location, g-force/acceleration data, and engine-related data such as fuel consumption, valve positions, engine speed, and mileometer value. What information is collected specifically depends on the equipment installed in the vehicle.
The owner of the contract decides the purposes for which this information is subsequently used, who will have access, and for how long the information is kept. Please refer to the owner of the contract for any additional information. Generally, this will be the owner or lessee of the vehicle.
Webfleet Solutions uses Google Analytics 360 software to collect information about how you use the Webfleet Solutions software, sites, and applications. The usage information that Webfleet Solutions collects does not contain location information or information that you have entered or uploaded. Webfleet Solutions has entered into a contract with Google that limits your information for use only by Webfleet Solutions and not by Google for any other purpose, such as advertising.
Your Webfleet Solutions equipment allows you to collect information from your car while you use it to receive reports and feedback on your trips and driving behavior. To provide you with reports and feedback, the information is sent using the Webfleet Solutions CURFER smartphone app to Webfleet Solutions using the Internet connection provided by your phone. The information is kept with your account as long as this account exists. If an Internet connection is not available, the information is securely stored on your equipment to be uploaded later.
Your information is stored in the European Union, governed by European data protection laws. Webfleet Solutions applies security methods based on industry standards to protect your information against unauthorized access while stored and while being transmitted.
We promise not to provide anyone else with access to the information that we collect or use it for any other purpose unless you provide us your permission or when we are explicitly and lawfully ordered to do so following due legal process.
If you share your vehicle with other drivers when the equipment is plugged in, you are responsible for informing these drivers about the fact that any driving and vehicle data is collected from the vehicle and that you have access to reports of this.
Your equipment and the Webfleet Solutions CURFER app will collect:
Your equipment does not collect any location information or information related to a vehicle accident, nor is any of this information shared with Webfleet Solutions.
The equipment sends additional information to your smartphone while the app is running, such as a detailed real-time flow of parameters read from your vehicle, including speed, engine rpm, engine temperature, engine load and fuel tank level, etc. in order to display this information in the app. This detailed information is not stored on the smartphone nor sent to Webfleet Solutions servers.
If you agree to allow the app to use location information, this is used to record the smartphone position when the vehicle is parked (engine off or the smartphone is moved out of reach of the equipment). Only the last position is stored, not a plot of your vehicle's movements, and the location is never shared with Webfleet Solutions.
When you first use the Webfleet Solutions CURFER app, you need to create your personal account including a user name, your email address, and a password. Webfleet Solutions advises you to keep your account details confidential and use a password you do not use elsewhere.
Your account is used to securely store the data collected by Webfleet Solutions CURFER on the Webfleet Solutions servers. We will use your email address to occasionally send information related to Webfleet Solutions CURFER or related products/services, or if there are updates you need to be aware of to ensure you can use your product in a safe, reliable way and without interruption, or if there is a legal requirement to contact you.
You can delete your CURFER account at any time using the smartphone app.
We will not share your CURFER account details with anyone else, unless explicitly and lawfully ordered to do so following due legal process.
The Smartphone app automatically uploads the data collected on the LINK 100 to Webfleet Solutions servers. Every time the vehicle’s engine is off and there is a mobile data connection, the app reads all stored data from your LINK 100 and sends it to the Webfleet Solutions servers. This happens in the background, even if you are not actively using the application. If you would like to prevent this from happening, you can disable mobile data usage for the app or use the ‘Logout’ function in the application.
Although the LINK 100 itself cannot collect your location nor is any location information shared with Webfleet Solutions, you should be aware that while you use your mobile phone to connect your LINK 100 to the Internet, your mobile phone may run operating system software or other apps, or use communication networks, that collect, transmit, or store personal and location information. Webfleet Solutions has no influence over this. For more details refer to the information and settings provided by your wireless carrier and the vendors of your system and apps.
To use the Apps, a Webfleet Solutions LINK device needs to be present and active in your vehicle. The Webfleet Solutions LINK device continuously collects data from the vehicle to create reports and feedback on your trips, driving behavior, and the vehicle's technical state. This vehicle data is combined with position information from the GPS sensor in the Webfleet Solutions LINK device and a timestamp, so all events and reporting can be matched with a location and time. To provide you with this feedback, the information is sent to Webfleet Solutions servers using the data connection provided in the Webfleet Solutions LINK device. The data is stored at Webfleet Solutions linked to an account under the control of the fleet manager. The fleet manager of your company (or employer) is the organization supporting your use of the vehicle or is the owner of the vehicle, and can typically be (part of) a fleet management company, a leasing or rental company, a car importer, dealer, or manufacturer.
The Apps continuously send data to and retrieve data from the Webfleet Solutions servers if you allow it to use the Internet connection of your smartphone. The Apps will report and visualize the collected data in a graphical user interface on your smartphone.
Your Webfleet Solutions LINK device and the Apps will collect the following information:
The fleet manager has decided the various purposes for which the data collected from your vehicle and the Apps will be used, who will have access to it, and for how long the information is kept. Please refer to the relevant information provided to you by your fleet manager.
If you share your vehicle equipped with a Webfleet Solutions LINK device with other drivers, you are responsible for informing these drivers that driving and vehicle data is collected from the vehicle and that you and the fleet manager have access to reports about said information.
The Webfleet Solutions LINK device sends additional information to your smartphone while the Apps are running, for example a detailed real-time flow of parameters read from your vehicle, including speed, engine rpm, engine temperature, engine load, tank fuel level etc., so this information can be displayed in the Apps. This detailed information is not stored on the smartphone.
You will receive user credentials for the Apps from the fleet manager. Webfleet Solutions advises you to do the following:
Your account is used to give you access to the data stored on the Webfleet Solutions servers. The information is kept with your account as long as this account exists or for as long as the fleet manager decides.
The Webfleet Solutions LINK device automatically uploads the collected data to Webfleet Solutions. This will happen frequently, typically every minute.
Specific location privacy control settings are available to you in the Apps to allow you to enable or disable various uses of location data. Please consult with your fleet manager for specific information on this.
You should be aware that while you use your smartphone it might run operating system software or other apps, or use communication networks, that collect, transmit, or store personal and location information.

For users of the application MyCar, the fleet manager is the organization supporting your use of the vehicle or owning the vehicle, typically a leasing company, a car importer, dealer, or manufacturer.

Webfleet Solutions applies security methods based on industry standards, including technologies such as pseudo-anonymization, hashing and encryption to protect your information against unauthorized access while stored and while being sent to and retrieved from the equipment.
