Purpose of this Privacy and Security Notice
If you are an authorised user of our Platform
This Privacy and Security Notice aims to provide other legal entities with the Bosch group and Bosch group business customers or potential business customers (“Clients”), and their authorised users (“you”), with information about how we collect and process personal information in connection with the provision of our Platform Services to Clients (in the case of our potential business customers being the access to a demonstration version of our Platform for demonstration purposes).If you are a member of the public
Clients may share their own real world driving footage with us so that we may process this data and prepare and produce scenes and simulation environments on their behalf. This footage may contain information relating to members of the public. We explain how we process this footage in our general privacy notice
, which considers our broader use of real-world driving footage in greater detail.
In order to provide you with access to our Platform, we need to collect minimal amounts of personal information about you. Aside from our collection of Platform Analytics (see below), we will only process the personal information you provide, strictly on behalf of Clients (your employer) and in accordance with their instructions. This means, for the most part and for the purposes of applicable data protection laws, our role will be limited to that of a data processor. Your organisation, the Client, will be the party responsible for making decisions about how your personal information is processed (the data controller).
Platform Analytics and User Feedback
We collect data about your use of our Platform and use platform analytics to understand how our Services are used so that we may improve them. From time to time we may also ask you to give feedback on our Platform and our Services on a voluntary basis. To the extent possible all of this information will be aggregated and anonymised to ensure you cannot be identified by such information. We will be the party responsible for making decisions about how your personal information is processed (the data controller) in respect of this information.
