3.1 Vendors, Service Providers, and Other Partners

Nauto may provide your personal information to vendors, service providers, and other partners who support Nauto’s business by providing technical infrastructure services, analyzing how our services are used, measuring the effectiveness of our services, providing customer service, facilitating payments, or conducting academic research and surveys.  These partners must adhere to strict confidentiality obligations in a way that is consistent with this Policy and the agreements we enter into with them.

We may share, license, or sell anonymized, non-personal data publicly and with third parties.  For example, Nauto may publish information about common driving mistakes or trends in traffic patterns.  We take steps to keep this non-personal information from being associated with you and we require our partners to do the same.

Any Nauto data that you choose to share with a third party is governed by that third party’s privacy policy while in that party’s possession.  Any data that Nauto receives from third-party products and services will be processed and stored by Nauto and will be treated in accordance with this Policy.  This information may be processed in the same ways as any other data that is a part of your Nauto account or Nauto logs.

The information we collect may be processed and stored on Nauto servers located in the United States or in other countries.  Your information may be subject to legal requirements, including disclosure requirements, in those jurisdictions.

In addition to technological security measures, Nauto places access controls on its employees, contractors, and agents.  We restrict access to any personal information to those Nauto employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to transmit, store, or process it, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations that are consistent with this Policy, and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.

Nauto cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.  In the event that any information in our possession or under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and, where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised and take other steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.

4.2 Data Retention and Deletion

We will retain the information that you provide only as long as needed to provide you services.  We may retain your personal information after you have closed your account if retention is reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes between Nauto users, prevent fraud or abuse, or enforce this Policy and our User Agreement.  You can request to delete your personal information from Nauto’s servers via an email request to  Because of the way we maintain certain Services, after your information is deleted, backup copies may linger for some time before they are deleted, and we may retain certain data for a longer period of time if we are required to do so for legal reasons.
