Information on the processing of personal data

We wish to provide you the best experience when you use our cars. Therefore, we offer you the ISMART app and equipped the cars with a well-invented system. In our cars there are two devices which communicate with and can be controlled by the ISMART app: the Audio Visual Navigation (“AVN”) and the Telematic Box (“TBOX”). All communication between the devices and the app runs via our Telematics Service Platform (“TSP Backend”). The AVN provides you infotainment applications, such as the navigation or the message centre. The TBOX is responsible for providing network access for the vehicle and upload data to the TSP Backend. For certain functions the AVN communicates directly with and transfers personal data to third parties (e.g. Amazon). For the provision of the functions outlined in this Data Privacy Information we process your personal data and want to inform you on the details of the processing. However, you can use our cars without using the online functionalities of the ISMART system that require the processing of personal data. When you use the AVN for the first time and when you download the app, we will ask you if you want to enable all functionalities of the ISMART system, including those that require the processing of personal data. You can turn on and off individual functionalities of the AVN, that require the processing of personal data.

Use of the ISMART account on the mobile phone and on the Audio Visual Navigation (AVN), including use of remote control functions of the car via ISMART

In connection with our electric cars we provide our app “ISMART” to view and remote control certain functions of the car and to send information, such as navigation destinations or Points of Interest (POIs), to the car. In order to use these functions, the car needs to be bound to the ISMART account. In this context, we process personal data for the following purposes:

  • Creation and provision of an ISMART account in order to remote control your vehicle and view the vehicle status remotely
  • Provision of the function to bind and unbind your vehicle to your account
  • Provision of the function to check and control the vehicle state
  • Provision of the Find My Car function
  • Provision of the Charging Management function
  • Provision of the Rescue Call function
  • Provision of the message centre
  • Provision of the Feedback function
  • Processing your feedback
  • Provision of the My Calendar function
  • Provision of energy consumption function
  • Provision of digital key function

Use of Voice Recognition

It is possible to navigate through our audio visual and navigation (AVN) system by using voice recognition. The voice recognition function enables you to operate certain functions on the AVN using only your voice. This function may be used for several different functions such as the navigation. Setting a new destination, zoom in or out of the map or cancelling the route are only some examples for voice commands. Voice recognition may also be used for switching to the next song in the music app. When using the voice recognition function, your voice commands are converted into machine-readable commands by our voice recognition provider.

Use of third-party apps on our Audio Visual and Navigation (AVN) System

The audio visual and navigation (AVN) system provides the possibility to use third-party apps, such as Amazon Music. With these apps you can use functions offered by third-party providers under their own responsibility. The relevant app is not activated by default but first needs to be activated by you in the relevant settings. Once the respective app is activated, the provider of the respective app may receive personal data from you. We do not have any knowledge about the personal data the provider actually obtains. We also do not have any knowledge about specific purposes of the processing of data collected by the provider of the relevant third-party app or about any further details of the data processing of the relevant provider. In particular, we also do not know whether the relevant provider only processes the data collected to provide the function of the relevant plug-in (e.g. to stream music) or, beyond this, for any other purposes (e.g. to create usage profiles or to personalise advertising).

If you are using our AVN via voice recognition please also view the chapter on voice recognition ( Section B.III).

Potential data transfers to third countries without an appropriate level of protection

It is possible that when you use a third-party app, personal data may be transferred to third countries for which there is no so-called adequacy decision of the European Commission and for which no suitable guarantees are provided. In this respect, there is a risk that there is no adequate level of protection for the personal data transferred. This means that your personal data processed by the third-party provider may not be subject to a level of protection comparable to the GDPR. In particular, this means that the principles for the processing of personal data set out in Art. 5 GDPR may not be complied with. In addition, you may not have enforceable rights and effective remedies with respect to the processing of personal data. By activating the respective third-party app, you accept these possible risks on your own responsibility.

This means that you have the right to obtain from us the erasure of your personal data and we are obliged to erase your personal data without undue delay when one of the reasons listed in Article 17 paragraph 1 of the General Data Protection Regulation applies. This can be the case, for example, if personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed (Article 17 paragraph 1 point (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation).

If we have made the personal data public and are obliged to erase it, we are also obliged, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, to take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that you have requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of those personal data (Article 17 paragraph 2 of the General Data Protection Regulation).
