Telenav understands and respects your concerns about the use of your personally identifiable information, collected from you as a user of Navigation and/or OnStar Connected Navigation ("Personal Information"). Personal Information includes name, home address, telephone numbers including mobile telephone numbers, email addresses, and VIN numbers. Personal Information does not include anonymous or aggregate information, which after processing cannot be associated with a specific person or entity. We believe that you should know what information about you we collect, as well as how that information is used, maintained, and, in some cases, shared. The following sets forth our privacy practices and policies, applicable to Navigation and OnStar Connected Navigation users.
The types of personal and other information we may collect about you are primarily from two sources: (1) information you provide; and (2) information automatically collected. How we use and maintain that information is described below.
We receive and store Personal Information about you when you authorize our business partners to share that information with us for use with Navigation and/or OnStar Connected Navigation or login to Navigation or OnStar Connected Navigation using your information, and when you otherwise transmit such information to us via OnStar Connected Navigation, or contact us by phone or email regarding our products and services. For instance, to maintain and/or verify your account we may receive certain account information from other of your accounts, with your consent, including your name, email address, vehicle information and whether your OnStar Connected Navigation subscription is active. We may also assign you a separate and unique Telenav ID number, which may be stored and used to manage your account and provide you with customer support, and to perform research and analysis about your use of our products and services.
Through GM, Navigation and/or OnStar Connected Navigation, you have the option of providing us with your home and work addresses, which we store in our database, to enable you to quickly navigate to those destinations and readily access other features of Navigation and/or OnStar Connected Navigation. Through Navigation or OnStar Connected Navigation you can also create a list of "favorite" addresses and points of interest. Within Navigation and/or OnStar Connected Navigation you also have the option to use the Navigation and/or OnStar Connected Navigation settings menu to customize your experience, for example by selecting your navigation preferences, setting up traffic reports, and selecting your preferred gas grade for searches. For OnStar Connected Navigation subscribers, we store these addresses and setting preferences in our cloud database so that you can access them from Navigation and/or OnStar Connected Navigation. For Navigation users, this information is stored locally on the navigation system in your vehicle.
We may also use the information that we collect about you to manage your account and provide you with customer support, perform research and analysis about your use of our products and services, to inform you from time to time within Navigation and/or OnStar Connected Navigation about products or services that we think may interest you, unless you inform us that you opt out from receiving such communications. We may share certain information we collect about you and your usage activity that does not include Personal Information with GM on a basis for the purpose of performing research and analysis about users of its products and services.
GM may use your email address or phone number to contact you with regard to Navigation or your OnStar Connected Navigation subscription, such as to communicate that it is about to expire or to respond to any inquiry or feedback you submit with GM Customer Service Representatives, by email or from within Navigation and/or OnStar Connected Navigation.
If you provide feedback regarding a routing or map issue, we may share your comments and anonymized location data with our third party map provider.
When you request additional information about Navigation or OnStar Connected Navigation, the information collected through these requests may include your name, phone number, and email address. We will use this information to provide you with details about these services, and in accordance with requirements under applicable law, we may use this information to promote our services to you in the future, unless you inform us that you opt out from receiving such communications.
If you use or link to public forums such as social networking services, blogs on Telenav or non-Telenav websites, internet bulletin boards, or chat rooms, be aware that any Personal Information you submit can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, including to send you unsolicited messages. Telenav cannot prevent the distribution and use of such information by other parties.
We automatically receive certain types of information, some of which may be associated with Personal Information, when you use either Navigation or OnStar Connected Navigation or both services.
Each time you access Navigation, we record your location, search and route information, including your point of origin or current location, the address of your destination, the starting time of your trip, and the route you are instructed to follow. When you are in an active Navigation session, we periodically record your current location, data from your vehicle’s sensors, and GPS heading and speed from the GPS hardware associated with your vehicle in order to provide you with your route. Navigation will save and display your most recent destinations to allow you to easily navigate to these destinations again.
When you choose to use your current location for specifying the locale for a business finder search, or obtaining a map, we use your location information for the requested purpose, and then discard it. We anonymously record any search activities and results for comparative analysis.
For OnStar Connected Navigation users with an active subscription who have opted-in to use connectivity, this location and route information will be stored in our secure cloud database, where we may keep such information for up to five years to improve our services and to provide other features that may enhance our service capabilities, functions, and your user experience. For OnStar Connected Navigation users, other address data, including home and work addresses, favorite places, and recent destinations will also be stored with your account information in our secure cloud database until your account is deleted.
For OnStar Connected Navigation users who have enabled the Predictive Navigation functionality, we will regularly receive and record location data from your vehicle’s GPS hardware, whenever you are operating your vehicle. This data will be stored in our secured cloud database and we will use such information to customize and improve your navigation and search experience and our services, for example to provide preferred brand point of interest search results, personalized routing, and commute alerts.
You can update your Predictive Navigation options (including disabling Predictive Navigation) at any time by accessing the Navigation Settings menu.
We may receive and store limited vehicle data from the vehicle systems, for example, ambient temperature, seat sensors on/off, and ignition on/off, which may be used to optimize the safety functionality of Navigation. For Navigation-only users, this data will be stored indefinitely in your Navigation system’s local memory. For OnStar Connected Navigation users with an active subscription, this data will be stored in our secure cloud database for up to five years from the date of collection.
When you use either Navigation or OnStar Connected Navigation or both services together, we log certain information relating to your use of each of Navigation and OnStar Connected Navigation and the Navigation performance. For example, we may collect data about what actions you take within a session, such as the type of search you performed or what kind of route you selected.
When you use the voice command or entry features on our services, we receive the text transcription from your audible utterance (what you said) and that text data may be stored for up to five years.
We may disclose Personal Information about you to third parties who complete transactions or perform services on our behalf. Your use of the Navigation and/or OnStar Connected Navigation may constitute consent to such disclosure.
We, our affiliates and service providers will comply with any applicable subpoenas, court orders or other legal processes for information about you in our possession, and we may use and disclose Personal Information to establish or exercise yours, ours, or others' legal rights, or to defend against legal claims. We also may be required to disclose Personal Information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
Information about you in our possession may be disclosed as part of a prospective or completed merger, acquisition, sale of company assets, or transition of service to another provider, as well as in the unlikely event of insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which your Personal Information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company. Telenav does not guarantee that any entity receiving such information in connection with one of these transactions will comply with all terms of this policy.
Telenav has implemented various physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in an effort to protect the confidentiality and security of Personal Information in our custody and under our control. For instance, Telenav limits access to Telenav systems that store such information to authorized personnel.
While Telenav maintains a multitude of security measures to prevent unauthorized access to or disclosure of your Personal Information, no security measures are absolute or wholly guaranteed. Telenav will make reasonable attempts to notify you if it determines there were unauthorized acts by third parties that violate the law or this policy, or other security breaches, or where otherwise required by law.
Telenav will maintain your Personal Information for as long as a business need exists, or as required by applicable laws, regulations, or government orders. When we dispose of Personal Information, we use commercially reasonable procedures to erase, anonymize or render it unreadable.
Telenav will not knowingly request or collect Personal Information from any person under 13 years of age without prior verifiable parental or legal guardian consent. If, however, you authorize a child to use our services or products by providing them access to a vehicle or device with access to Navigation, OnStar Connected Navigation or other Telenav services or products, any Personal Information associated with such use will be treated as your information in accordance with this policy. Telenav encourages parents to be involved in the online activities (including wireless Internet browsing) of their children to ensure that no information is collected from a child without parental or Guardian consent.
