Data collection and processing with our products and services

Data collection while using Motion-S Trip Recorder App

All the information collected through the Motion-S Trip Recorder App is fully anonymized. Users are requested, upon downloading the app, to enter a PIN code that links their data collection campaign to a respective Fleet. All data collected is, hence, aggregated under the respective Client’s Fleet ID, which allows providing the data augmentation and profiling insights for the particular project. In order to provide these insights not only at the fleet level but also at the driver/user level, an anonymized device_id is generated upon installation of the App by the user.

During the collection of the trips, the Motion-S Trip Recorder works in the background and activates the GPS sensor when vehicular movement is detected using low-energy sensors. Throughout the trip, the App collects vehicle geolocation (latitude, longitude), speed, and heading, with a frequency of one location update per second. No other data field is collected during the trip. No data is collected when the user is not driving. In particular, the information about activities recognized by the physical activities sensors is not reported to the Motion-S platform.

Data sending through API

Once the trip is finalized, the mobile app sends the full list of locations of the trip via the API using predefined credentials for the customer, including an organization_id, a trip_id, device_id, and anonymized username. No identification information of the user (IMEI, email, etc.) is reported to our platform. All the exchanges between the app and the Motion-S platform are secured via HTTPS.

Linking of the Motion-S anonymized user_id to the real user’s identity

Each user of the mobile app has the possibility to obtain his anonymized username in the Motion-S platform by going to the Settings screen of the app. The final user is, therefore, the only one able to deanonymize his/her data and profiles shown in the Analytics Dashboard. If the Client wishes to build a list of usernames and identities of the mobile app users, it simply has to request to the different mobile app users their username obtained via the Setting screen in the app, ensuring compliance with local data privacy regulations.

Data storage

Both raw data collected from the mobile app and augmented and profiled data obtained after processing in the cloud are stored and backed up in the Motion-S platform. All the data is stored in the European Union territory. The data is kept in the Motion-S platform for the duration of the project with the customer. Upon client request, raw collected data can be deleted once the project ends. Anonymized augmented and profiled data is kept by Motion-S for the purpose of enhancing the performance of its platform and services related to it.

Changes

We may update this policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to our practices or for other operational, legal, or regulatory reasons.
