Information We Collect and How We Collect It
We collect personal and other information about you. Personal information is data that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked (directly or indirectly) with you. Other information does not and cannot reveal an individual’s identity such as information that has been de-identified or aggregated. The information we collect varies based on what products and services you have with us.
We collect information about you in several ways and from several sources. We collect geolocation information and related driving behavior information about you through either (i) a mobile application you have installed that includes Arity’s driver behavior tracking technology or (ii) through a device installed in your vehicle. When we reference “mobile apps” below, we are referring both to a mobile app we provide and a mobile app that includes our driving behavior tracking technology. We collect personal information about you from other parties including our corporate affiliates, our business clients (businesses that use Arity’s technology with which you engage to receive a product or service), data brokers and service providers. We may collect personal information directly from you, such as personal information collected during an interview or survey.
The following are the categories of personal information that we have collected and shared for at least the past 12 months, and examples of the information that may be considered personal information under California law that fall into those categories:
- Personal identifiers: Includes name, alias, postal address, unique personal identifier, online identifier- such as mobile advertising identifiers (Mobile Ad ID), internet protocol (IP) address, and email address.
- Internet or other electronic network activity information: Includes browsing history, search history, information regarding your interaction with our website, mobile apps, and advertisements we facilitate, links you use, referral pages or web pages you visit while visiting our websites, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), and cookies. It also includes mobile app and device usage information (e.g., frequency of use, application marketplace from where you downloaded the mobile app, operating system and time zone) and driving behavior (e.g., phone handling, miles, speed, and if a mobile app detects a collision, information about the collision). See Arity’s Privacy Statement for additional details about the information automatically collected from your devices.
- Geolocation data: Includes geolocation coordinates, including latitude, longitude, and altitude, your direction of travel, and the time the information was recorded.
- Inferences: Inferences drawn from personal information collected to create a profile reflecting preferences, characteristics, psychological trends, predispositions, driving habits and behavior, attitudes, abilities and aptitudes.
Arity often acts as a service provider to its business clients and collects certain additional personal information in connection with performing services on behalf of those business clients. The use of this information is subject to the privacy practices of those business clients and not this privacy statement.
