Likewise, you may also create an account by directly providing all the information asked for such a purpose, without using a third party authentication service.
      2. Your Mobile Media: We may also collect information from your mobile devices for a better user experience, such as device location, SMS and call related information, contacts list and photo gallery by allowing you to upload any picture from your phone. These features are optional and subject to you providing us with consent.
      3. User Content: All content added, uploaded, submitted, distributed, transmitted, or posted to or using the Services by you (“User Content”), whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, will be stored and accessible through the Services (though you acknowledge we have no obligation to store and make such User Content accessible for any period of time). User Content will be accessible to the users you decide to share such content with.
      4.

We also collect the contents of messages or attachments that you may send to us, as well as other information you choose to provide, and that may be associated with your communications.
      5. Payment Information: When you choose to subscribe for Services, we may enable payment via the Services and will collect information relating to the subscription and payment information allowing you to pay us.

If your invitee would like us to delete his or her data, they can do so by opting-out using the functionality in the app provided for such purpose or by contacting us at: .

        Some of the personal information that we collect directly from you may be mandatory and some may be optional. We will let you know which of these applies at the time we collect the relevant personal information.

        While you do not have to provide us with some of the information that we may request, this might mean that our products and services may not perform as well as they should, or that we may not be able to provide some parts of the Services to you.

    3. Information Collected Automatically
      1. Automatic Data Collection: We keep track of certain information about you when you visit and interact with any of our Services. This information may include your Internet protocol (IP) address, user settings, MAC address, cookie identifiers, mobile carrier, details about your browser, operating system or device, location information (including inferred location based off of your IP address), Internet service provider, pages that you visit before, during and after using the Services, information about the links you click, information about how you interact with the Services, including the frequency and duration of your activities, and other information about how you use the Services. Information we collect may be associated with accounts and other devices.
      2. Cookies, Pixel Tags/Web Beacons, and Analytics Information: We, as well as third parties that provide content or other functionality on the Services, may use cookies, pixel tags, local storage, and other technologies (“Technologies”) to automatically collect information through the Services. Technologies are essentially small data files placed on your devices that allow us and our partners to record certain pieces of information whenever you visit or interact with our Service.

        “Cookies” are small text files placed in device browsers to store their preferences. Most browsers allow you to block and delete cookies. However, if you do that, the Service may not work properly.

        A “Pixel Tag” or a “Web Beacon” is a piece of code embedded in the Services that collects information about engagement on the Services. The use of a pixel tag allows us to record, for example, that a user has visited a particular web page or clicked on a particular link. We may also include web beacons in e-mails to understand whether messages have been opened, acted on, or forwarded.

        If you follow a link on our Service to another website, the owner of that website will have its own cookies. We suggest you review that website’s cookie policy before you visit that website.

      3. Analytics: We may also use third-party service providers to collect and process analytics and other information on our Services. These third-party service providers may use cookies, pixel tags, web beacons or other storage technology to collect and store analytics and other information. They have their own privacy policies addressing how they use the analytics and other information and we do not have access to, nor control over, third parties’ use of cookies or other tracking technologies.
    4. Third Party Sources
      1. Authentication Services: We collect personal information from third parties where you have authorised this. This includes accessing certain personal information from third party authentication services (e.g. Google, Microsoft, LinkedIn or Apple) if you login to your account with us using these services or otherwise provide us access to information from these sources. If you do not login using such third party authentication services and grant such access, we will not be able to provide our Service(s). The third party provider that we use will be displayed and you can visit its privacy policy for further details on how it deals with personal information.
  3. How Do We Use the Information We Collect?
    1. Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one or more of the following ways:
      • To enable you to access and use our Service(s).
        • We collect your identity information such as Name, phone number, email address, and more. We also leverage an authentication service (AWS Cognito) to maintain password-controlled access to the service.
      • To verify your identity.
        • Same as above.
      • To personalize your experience. Your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs, for example, by remembering whether you are an administrator or a user of the Services, the capacity in which you use the Services, any service issues encountered in the past, your messages or communications with us, and your past deliveries or trips.
        • We designate users as Viewers and Admins for our portal. The mobile app only provides basic user rights so that a Viewer can log in to the application and then activate BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) connections manually or automatically as well as read sensor information for deliveries and receive notifications.
      • To communicate with you by responding to your requests, comments and questions. If you contact us, we may use your information to respond.
        • If there are app issues you may reach out directly to Carnot Fleet using the email or functionality provided for that purpose, for software concerns, comments, questions, or requests. Your concerns, comments, questions or requests would be collected as well.
      • To process your payments and otherwise servicing your orders.
        • We may use manual invoicing and/or vendors to process payments for our subscriptions.
      • To send emails and other communications. We may send you service, technical and other administrative emails, messages, and other types of communications. We may also contact you to inform you about changes in our Services, our offerings, and important notices. In addition, we sometimes send emails about new product features, promotional communications or other news about Carnot Fleet. These are marketing messages so you can control whether you receive them.
        To send you push notifications through our mobile app. You may opt out from receiving these types of communications by changing the settings on your mobile device. However, we strongly recommend against this since this may ruin user experience and functionality (specifically in the notifications realm and could even cause damage to payloads due to driver negligence. Opt out at severe risk only)
      • To develop and provide search, learning, insights and additional features. Carnot Fleet tries to make the Services as useful as possible for specific users. For example, we may improve search functionality by using your information to help determine and rank the relevance of content, provide insights based on historical use and predictive models to customize your experience, or create new features. We continually strive to improve our platform offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you.
      • To measure interest and engagement in our Service(s), including analyzing your usage of the Service(s). We may use personal information and other data about you to create de-identified and/or aggregated information. De-identified and/or aggregated information is not personal information, and we may use and disclose such information in a number of ways, including research, internal analysis, analytics, and any other legally permissible purposes.
      • For any other purpose authorized by you or applicable law.
  4. How Long Do We Keep Your Information?
    1. We keep your personal information we receive for as long as you use our Services or as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected, including to provide our Service(s), resolve disputes, establish legal defenses, conduct audits, pursue legitimate business purposes, enforce our agreements, and comply with applicable laws.

    1. We protect the information you provide from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure. These steps take into account the sensitivity of the information we collect, process and store, and the current state of technology. Given the nature of communications and information processing technology, Carnot Fleet cannot guarantee that information during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others.
