OPT-7 Connect Mobile App with Navigation for iOS & Android

Your privacy in OPT-7 Connect App Navigation enabled by HERE

Opt-7’s privacy policy explains how we process your personal data when you use our products and services. In addition, the following information applies to your use of your Navigation system enabled by Opt-7 and its features (the “Service”). The Service is a connected always-on navigation experience and includes features designed for use by a driver as well as passengers in the vehicle.

The purpose of this document is to give background information on data processing for different features available in the Service. The features of the Service enable you for example to navigate from one place to another, find places and addresses on a map, interact with them and access relevant content. The Service may also enable your vehicle manufacturer to request data from the Service e.g., to synchronize information related to your drives to access from other screens and devices. Please note that the Service is defaulting to a connected, online, experience.

Your agreement with these terms implies your responsibility for ensuring that this information is passed on to other users of the vehicle, such as co-drivers or passengers, and ensure that these users also accept these terms.

What information do we collect?

We collect the following categories of information:

Location data and place information

Our Service makes use of information about your actual location (“Location Data”) and expressed interests in points of interest (“Places Data”). Location Data reveals where you currently are or where you have been. Location Data is based on available positioning methods, such as GPS. Places Data is general information pertaining to particular geographical locations (e.g. a city or a location of a restaurant) that you may have provided to us, for example your favorite places.

Unless otherwise stated, we use random identifiers in connection with your Location Data that do not identify you personally.

When you start to use the Service, the application acquires your current location using underlying positioning technologies in the vehicle.

The Service may send your Location Data to Opt-7 when you use location enabled features of the Service online, such as ask information about nearby content, services or offerings or share your location. As further defined below, Location Data may be collected when you use the navigation feature for service improvement purposes without identifying you personally. Places Data may be sent to Opt-7 for example when you synchronize your favorites.

Navigation functionality

The navigation features of the Service enable you to see the current position of your vehicle on the map, search for addresses and places and request for traffic-aware routing options. It also allows to store and provide access to the last destination searches and favorites.

The connected navigation experience includes both offline cache and online update options for the map content. During your drive, if your vehicle doesn’t already have the map content for the region of your drive available in the local memory, the map content will be dynamically requested and downloaded alongside your drive from Opt-7 servers, for the upcoming route ahead.

During your drive, you may also benefit from turn-by-turn, maneuver-based visual and voice guidance instructions, enabling you to follow the planned route. This guidance can be combined with notifications for low fuel or low charging level situations and with automatic retrieval of nearby fuel or charging stations around your then-current position and along your planned route.

If you also enable dynamic route guidance feature, your vehicle will request for alternative routes on regular intervals from the Opt-7 servers. Alternative routes are calculated considering the current traffic situation on these routes.

Synchronization functionality

With the synchronization experience, you may be able to synchronize your current vehicle position, stored favorites, planned destinations and routes as well as current ETA to your mobile device or other screens or devices.

Depending on your version, the synchronization feature may be either provided by your vehicle manufacturer or Opt-7.

Traffic improvement

Whenever you use the Service while having traffic features enabled, the Service sends, on regular intervals, your current location, speed, direction and timestamp to us to provide you and other users of the Service with better traffic service such as detect traffic jams, traffic patterns, changed road conditions and other such conditions as well as to identify new routes on the map. This information is analyzed to distinguish independent routes and traffic patterns and contains a changing identifier, which is persistent only for the duration of the route. This information is sent to us when you use the Service online. In case you are using the Service offline, we may collect this information locally and it may be sent to us on your next connection.

While learning your daily commutes, the Service can start recommending optimal times for travel based on foreseen traffic situation.

This information can be further assigned to an online account or profile.
