  • Payment information, such as your credit card details.
  • Personal Information in communications and other content you submit or share, such as photographs and video clips.
  • Information about activities and purchases related to your vehicle such as service performed, battery replacement, or other data points relevant to the maintenance of the vehicle.

Information We Collect Automatically:  We also may receive and store certain information, which may be Personal Information, about you as well as your computer, mobile device, and your vehicle’s OBD II port automatically. Automatically collected information may include:

Personal Information does not include anonymized aggregate or statistical information from which such identification cannot be reconstituted.  We may de-identify Personal Information, including information about your driving habits that we have collected from you through the Site, the App, the OBD-II port, or our other Services and combine it with de-identified information about other users, information from third parties, and/or publicly available information.

USE OF INFORMATION

We use the information we collect and receive including Personal Information, for the following general purposes:

  • To provide you with access to our Services;
  • To help us improve the content and functionality of our Services;

  • To conduct research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behaviors;
  • To respond to your questions and assist with any problems with our Services; and
  • For any other purpose disclosed to you at the time we collect the information, or otherwise with your consent.

SHARING OF INFORMATION

We consider your Personal Information and your other information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your information with certain third-parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Service Providers: Voyo may share your information, including some Personal Information, with entities that provide services to us, including companies that provide web analytics, data processing, advertising, e-mail distribution, payment processing, order fulfillment, and other services. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information they need to perform their specific function.

Groups You Create or Join: At your request, we may share profile information and information about your geolocation and driving habits with members of groups you create or join. You decide whether this information is shared and with whom.  If you have joined a group, the group creator may add new members and may change whether you share location information with other members after you have joined the group.  It is your responsibility to monitor these activities.  The group administrator controls the sharing.  If you do not want such sharing to occur, you should communicate with the group administrator.

Community Forum: If you submit feedback or ideas through the community forum on the site and/or app, any information that you submit, including Personal Information, will be included in your post and will be public.  Your name will be included in any posts that you make to the Community Forum.

Other Parties When Required by Law or as Necessary to Protect Our Services: There may be instances when we disclose your information to other parties in order to:  (i) protect and defend legal rights of Voyo, its affiliates, and users of our Services; (ii) protect the safety and security of users of our Services; (iii) prevent fraud (or other risk management purposes); or (iv) comply with or respond to law or legal process or a request for cooperation by a government entity.

Other Parties in Connection with Certain Business Transfers:  If we make a sale, donation, or transfer of assets, or are otherwise involved in a corporate merger, transfer, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, we may transfer your information to one or more third parties as part of that transaction.

Other Parties:  In addition to the sharing described in this Privacy Policy, we may share information about you with other third parties, including for the purpose of allowing those third parties to provide you with information about their products and services, evaluate the data, or develop services or products.  Types of information collected and shared may include information relevant to vehicle service and repair in order to provide improved diagnostic data and offering of related promotional services. Other circumstances in which your information, including Personal Information, may be shared include for use by third-party apps and programs that use information provided by Voyo.

YOUR CHOICES

After your initial registration and activation of the Device, you may change settings within the App to limit the types of Personal Information shared.  If you choose not to provide any Personal Information, you may not be able to use certain Services. You may select not to send any Personal Information to the Voyomotive Cloud within Settings; however, the Voyo will still send information to the Company needed to verify account information, information about your vehicle needed for Voyo to operate on your model of vehicle and to provide necessary updates to system software used by Voyo hardware and the Voyo app.  You may also disable our ability to use cookies by using the cookie controls in your web browser. However, if you do disable cookies, we will not be able to provide you with some features of our Services.

Phone-Based Location Data:  You may choose to turn off phone location data collection either within the App or within your phone’s Location Services settings.  This may disable any features that use this data, such as location sharing.

Car Location Data:  You can disable the collection of car location data by unplugging the Voyo device from the car.  Expectedly, this disables all car-related capabilities within the service but can be resumed when you choose to reconnect the device.

Your Voyo Account Information:  Where applicable, you may amend your preferences by updating your account information or settings within your Voyo authenticated account. You may unsubscribe from marketing-oriented emails by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in emails you receive from Voyo.
