Privacy Policy for Idrive Products and Services (Effective date: May 25, 2018)

This Privacy Policy ("Policy") describes what information Idrive, Inc. and Road Safety, SRL, its service providers, and affiliates (collectively, "Idrive", "we," "our" or "us") collects and how Idrive uses this information. When we talk about the "Services" in this Policy, we are referring to the use of the Idrive device (both the device hardware and the software which supports and interacts with the device), Idrive's applications or other Idrive products and services. Road Safety, SRL, an Romanian registered company will provide the Services to Idrive's Customers in the European Union, and Idrive, Inc., a US company, will provide Idrive's customers with the Services in all other countries.  Details of these Idrive companies are set out at the end of this Policy.


1. What Information Does Idrive Collect and Receive?

Idrive may, on behalf of its customers, collect and analyze information (including personal information) about users (such as drivers and passengers) of the Services and other individuals (such as members of the public whose images may be captured by the Services). This content and information is referred to in this Policy as "Customer Data" and is controlled by Idrive's customers. To the extent that Idrive captures, stores and analyses Customer Data, Idrive does so on behalf of its customers.

If you are using the Services by invitation of a Idrive customer, whether that customer is your employer, another organization, or an individual, Idrive collects, stores, and analyses your data on behalf of its customer in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy, though that customer will otherwise determine its own additional policies regarding the treatment of Customer Data which may apply to your use of the Services. Idrive may implement some of these policies on its customers' behalf.  Please check with the customer about the policies it has in place.


2. Idrive Device and Customer Data

The Idrive device is an intelligent camera and sensor system that allows the collection of internal and external event data from vehicles to improve driver safety and fleet operations. Idrive devices use camera and sensor technology to scan a driver's environment and collect information. The device's cameras are both inward and outward facing. In addition to capturing video clips and images of drivers and passengers, the Idrive device also collects the following types of information:

  • GPS location
  • Network or internet protocol addresses
  • Operating system ID
  • Mobile network details
  • Idrive device identifier or registration details
  • Idrive device settings
  • Date, time and type of web requests

The Idrive device and Services may also collect information about a vehicle's environment and experience while on the road, including information about:

  • Geographic location and relative proximity of a vehicle to other vehicles
  • Hazards, such as pedestrians (whose faces may be blurred), bicycles, weather, and other vehicles
  • Collision, near-miss, hard braking, acceleration or cornering events
  • Traffic patterns, speeds, and flow
  • Lane and road departure
  • License plate numbers (which may be blurred) and other information such as color or make of surrounding vehicles
  • Not obeying the rules of the road e.g. running a red light

The Idrive device and Services may also collect other personal information about drivers (and passengers where indicated) such as:

  • Name
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Home/work address
  • Driver's license / ID information
  • Date of birth
  • Vehicle identification number ("VIN")
  • License plate
  • Emergency contact information
  • Face of driver
  • Driver's posture and other physical characteristics when driving
  • Who was in a collision including passengers
  • Live camera feed / photo images including passengers
  • Audio recordings including passengers


The Idrive device also uses face scanning and facial recognition software on the data captured by the Idrive device to create a profile of a driver for Idrive's customers. For example, this software may create a profile based on a driver's facial features, such as the distance between the eyes, nose and ears, for a particular driver, that it uses to connect a driver in one particular photo or video to another photo or video for customer's benefit.  The device's software may also analyze facial features, driver behavior, posture and movements in order to ensure safety and to prevent accidents. This is done for safety reasons to protect the vital interests of drivers and passengers.   For example, the device may process the following information about a driver's behavior:

  • Driver behavior and actions or inaction
  • Risks
  • Number of passengers in the vehicle
  • Drowsiness
  • Inattention (i.e., Drowsy Driving, Texting)
  • Braking
  • Speed, acceleration, and mileage
  • Driving time
  • Idrive device tampering
  • Vehicle security (i.e., video when parked)
  • Not obeying the rules of the road, (i.e., Cell phone use, traffic infractions or signs, safe distance warning)


Some of this information may be sensitive personal information which is needed by the Customer to protect the vital interests of drivers, passengers and members of the public. Some images and information about members of the public may also be captured by the device. To the extent requested by a customer, we may create account "Profiles" for drivers. These Profiles allow Idrive to display a driver's Profile name and photo, and link that Profile with information collected by that driver's Idrive device. In order to create these profiles on behalf of customers, Idrive may process information such as names, username, password, photographs, location, and contact information of drives. In addition, drivers and passengers may transmit information to Idrive on behalf of customers, by recording a short voice note using the Idrive device. Idrive processes the voice note on behalf of its customer to understand additional details of an incident or passenger interaction and may use the information to offer technical or emergency support to drivers on behalf of its Idrive customers. The device may also, on customer's behalf, collect other information about a driver's environment and experience on the road including a vehicle's speed, acceleration, braking, collision events, mileage, relative proximity to other vehicles, road conditions/hazards, traffic patterns/density and the details of surrounding vehicles.
