In the course of its operations, Seeing Machines Limited and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (Seeing Machines or we) collects and uses a range of data from different sources, including end users of its products and services. We have two policies describing how we will collect, use, disclose and protect this data to comply with relevant laws dealing with privacy and data protection:
We also have separate internal policies and procedures covering how we deal with the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Data of Seeing Machines’ staff.
This Policy applies to all the operations of Seeing Machines, globally. It does not cover affiliates which are not wholly-owned. This Policy covers the collection of data from Seeing Machines’ staff in their capacity as users or testers of our Products or Services, but does not cover other Personal Data provided in their capacity as employees (such as financial or health information).
Our products and services are not directed to children under the age of 16 and we ask that they not give us their Personal Data.
In this Policy, the term Personal Data means: Information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable, whether the information or opinion is true or not, and whether the information or opinion is recorded in a material form or not.
Personal Data could include someone’s name, home and business mailing addresses, telephone number, e-mail address, payment card, direct debit or other billing information, social media account identification, shareholder identification numbers, driver’s license number, tax identification number, government-issued identification number, audio or video recordings, or date of birth.
As relevant to this Policy, we may collect Personal Data in a number of ways, including:
|Through the use of our Products||
Seeing Machines builds image-processing technology that tracks the movement of a person’s eye, face, head and facial expressions. We incorporate this technology into products and services for a range of industries (Products), including our GuardianTM driver fatigue, distraction and accident prevention product.
Our Products capture and generate data about driver and operator performance (including fatigue and distraction events and driving performance) and transmit this data to our operations centre. This data may include Personal Data.
|Through providing services to our customers||We may also collect Personal Data from our customers (for instance, a company operating a transport fleet may give us Personal Data about the drivers of their vehicles). We may also do this as part of providing services to our customers.|
We control access to Personal Data, including taking steps to restrict access to individuals within Seeing Machines who need such information to perform their jobs and are bound by confidentiality obligations.
We collect, hold, use and disclose Personal Data for a range of reasons, including, as relevant to this Policy:
Personal Data we collect may be disclosed to third parties when necessary to perform the activities as listed above or other services on our or on your behalf, including the following:
We do not share your Personal Data with unaffiliated third parties for their marketing purposes.
Data collected from or about you may be used in an aggregate and anonymised form, i.e. in a form that doesn’t reasonably allow anyone to identify you. Along with using this data in aggregate form ourselves, we may share this anonymised data with business partners or otherwise use, disclose or commercially exploit it.
Seeing Machines primarily processes Personal Data in Australia and the United States, however the Seeing Machines group operates globally, and your Personal Data may be collected in any country where we have Products deployed (or where you give us the data from) and may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or in which we engage service providers.
We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical, and administrative measures to protect Personal Data from misuse, interference or unauthorised access or disclosure.
We use multiple layers of security to protect Personal Data from unauthorized access and disclosure. Our solutions are deployed within data centers that address Physical, Operational and System Security via an information system security management system defined by the ISO 27001 framework. Our solutions utilize Transport Layer Security (TLS) for client to server communication, selective encryption of sensitive data stored to disk, and other proprietary security frameworks within the presentation tier that are designed to prevent unauthorized data access.
Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. By providing us with any Personal Data you expressly and unconditionally release and hold harmless Seeing Machines Limited and its subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, employees and agents from any and all liability for any injuries, loss or damage of any kind arising from or in connection with the use and/or misuse of your collected Personal Data. In addition, while we take efforts to ensure the proper and appropriate use of data provided by us to third party companies, promotional partners or vendors, we are not liable for any injuries, loss or damage of any kind arising from or in connection with the use and/or misuse of your collected Personal Data by us or the above-mentioned third parties.
This section operates to the fullest extent allowed by law. If this section is wholly or partly unenforceable under applicable laws, the offending section will be severed from this Policy and the remaining sections not affected.
If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the “How to Contact us” section below.
We will take such steps (if any) as are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure that the Personal Data that we collect is accurate, up-to-date and complete; and that Personal Data that we use or disclose is, having regard to the purpose of the use or disclosure, accurate, up-to-date, complete and relevant.
If you ask us for access to your Personal Data that we hold, we will respond to your request within a reasonable time. We will give you access if it is reasonable and practicable to do so, unless one of the exceptions in the Australian Privacy Act applies (or similar laws in the country where you are located or where the data is held).
