Words and phrases used in this policy have the same meanings defined in our InControl Terms and Conditions as set out on the My Land Rover InControl website unless otherwise indicated. “InControl Package” as used herein shall mean, as applicable based on your Vehicle’s model and subscription(s), the InControl Services, the My Land Rover InControl website, the InControl Remote Smartphone App, and your Vehicle’s Wi-Fi Hotspot functionality (including the Trial Plan).
Please note that, as described in more detail below in the discussions of information we may collect, certain services and connectivity between your Vehicle and us may continue even if you decline to accept InControl Services.
INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT ABOUT YOU
We may collect and process the following data about you and/or your Vehicle (“Covered Information”):
- Submitted Information: information that you or the authorized Land Rover retailer from which you purchased or leased your Vehicle provide during the setup of your InControl Package account(s). This information includes, but is not limited to, your name, address, telephone number (including mobile number), e-mail address, language preference, password and PINs for your InControl Services account, and your preferred authorized Land Rover retailer.
- Transaction and Communication Records:
- if you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence; and
- details of any transactions, if applicable, you carry out through the My Land Rover InControl website, Live Features and/or the InControl Remote Smartphone App.
- Device Information (including location): We may collect information about the mobile device, tablet (or similar) or any computer you may use (each a “Device”) to download a copy of the InControl Remote Smartphone App onto your Device, including the operating system and version, the InControl Remote Smartphone App installation unique identifier, and the Device’s locale settings and country code. The InControl Remote Smartphone App may also collect information about the location of your device and tokens and username for identification. You can restrict the access to, or collection of, your Device’s location by disabling the location features of your Device or by not using the features of the device that require location information.
- Vehicle Identification Information: information about the vehicle on which you have a current and valid subscription for the InControl Services (“Vehicle”) including the Vehicle Identification Number (“VIN”), make, model, model year, Vehicle features, registration number, date of purchase or lease, and the authorized Land Rover retailer from which you purchased or leased the Vehicle.
- Vehicle Location Information: information about the last parked location of the Vehicle, which will always be collected for availability through the Remote Smartphone App and the My Land Rover InControl website unless you cancel your InControl Services by the method(s) described in the InControl Terms and Conditions. We will also collect and process information about the location of the Vehicle at any point in time as part of the “Journey Tracking” function (“Journeys”) of the InControl Services (when Journeys is activated). The information that we will collect and process as part of Journeys is set out in “Journey Information” below. You are able to switch off Journeys via the My Land Rover InControl website or the InControl Remote Smartphone App. If, however, the “SOS Emergency Call”, the “Optimized Land Rover Assistance”, or “Stolen Vehicle Locator” function is activated, real-time location data relating to the Vehicle will be sent to the relevant service providers and/or emergency services (as appropriate) even if you have not activated Journeys or switched off Journeys. Please note that the “SOS Emergency Call” functions will be activated automatically upon the occurrence of a relevant trigger event such as the deployment of your vehicle’s airbags respectively. Please also note that even if you decline acceptance of InControl Services, certain limited connectivity between your Vehicle and us and/or our emergency service providers will continue, which may be triggered in the event of an emergency. Specifically, if vehicle sensors detect that an accident may have occurred, including through a trigger such as deployment of the Vehicle’s airbags, the Vehicle may automatically initiate a call to contact emergency services via activation of the “SOS Emergency Call” function or you may be able to manually initiate a Voice call for emergency services. The occurrence of such call may transmit information, including Vehicle location, time, and a vehicle identifier to us and/or our emergency service providers. For full details of the relevant trigger events please refer to the Vehicle handbook.
- Information about How You Drive Your Vehicle - “Journey Information”: information about your journey is sent from your Vehicle, including the journey date and distance, the duration of the journey (start date/time and end date/time), the average speed, the distance, the route travelled and data about the Vehicle’s fuel efficiency. You can turn off Journeys via the My Land Rover InControl website or the InControl Remote Smartphone App. This will prevent any of the above information from being sent from the Vehicle (except for the last parked location).
- Vehicle Operation Information: this includes information relating to the Vehicle’s involvement in an accident, such as the deployment of airbags or activation of Vehicle sensors. We may also collect information about the operation of the Vehicle including, but not limited to, the fuel level, the estimated distance to empty, the odometer value, the distance to recommended service status, the coolant level, the washer fluid level, the brake fluid status, the brake pad wear, tire pressure, tire pressure sensor failure, engine malfunction, oil level, door and window status, trunk open, hood open status, battery voltage, and whether the alarm is armed or sounding.

We may also collect information about you from public or commercial sources, which shall not be considered Covered Information hereunder.
We may combine any of the above described Covered Information together with any information collected from public and/or commercial sources, and will treat the combined information as Covered Information in accordance with this policy for as long as it is combined.
