II. Munich Re Service GmbH – Information about data protection

Munich Re Service GmbH (we, our, us)  is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This information (together with our end user licence agreement and any other documents referred to in it) sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it. By downloading the RE_drive app (App) via either Apple’s Appstore or the Google Play Store, you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this Information.

Who is responsible for processing your data?

Your personal data i.e. any information which identifies you, or which can be identified as relating to you personally, will be collected and used by

Munich Re Service GmbH
Königinstrasse 107
80802 München, Germany

Tel.: +49 (89) 38 91- 22 55
Fax: +49 (89) 39 91 7 22 55
Email: contact@munichre.com

If you have any questions about this information, you may contact us by post to “Global Consulting” at the above address, or by e-mail to RE_drive@munichre.com.

What data and sources do we use?

Information you give us:

When you download, activate and use the App (or contact us in respect of the App), we may collect any or all of the following information about you:

  • Personal details (name, email, country, company)

Data we collect automatically:

When you install and run the App, we may collect any or all of the following technical data:

  • Device Identifiers (the internet protocol address used to connect your device to the internet, your log-in information, browser type and version, regional settings, operating system and platform);
  • data about your use of the App (e.g. frequency, duration) ;
  • specific location information and direction (we use GPS technology to determine your current location);
  • data about your driving behaviour (current speed, duration of journey, acceleration, braking and cornering);
  • data on mobile phone usage while driving (i.e. information about when you make and receive phone calls and send and receive text messages on your device). We do not have access to the content of phone calls, text messages or any other app on this phone.

Please note that the App only starts recording information when you are travelling at a minimum speed and will stop recording when your journey ends. Further, please note the following:

  • We do not record you 24/7
  • Location access is only used to guarantee the core functionality of the RE_drive app by generating driver and journey scores
  • Location access is thus, directly related to providing and improving the core features of the app
  • Location data is not used for any type of advertising purposes

Further, note that the App collects data for all kinds of journeys independent of the mode of transportation. Meaning the App also collects data whilst you are not driving with a car but using a different mode of transportation such as train, bike, plane, boat or whilst walking. As said, the App starts recording all journeys automatically if and only if a minimum speed is detected and stops once the journey ends. The App discerns your movement and tags your journey with its anticipated mode of transportation, e.g. driver, train, bike, etc. You can change the mode of transportation within the RE_drive app within 72 hour after the trip was conducted if the anticipated mode of transportation was not correctly tagged.

All of your journey data will be collected and retained by the App, whether you are a driver or passenger. Passenger journeys, however, can be excluded from your diving scores by tagging your journey.

The data that is automatically collected will be send to our technology supplier’s server and we will use the information to provide you feedback on your driving style. This information will be used to build up a profile of how, where, and when your car is driven and the level of your mobile phone distraction during those journey times. This information will be combined to form a driving score based on your driving behaviour.

What cookies are and how we use them:

Cookies are small data files which we place on your device. We use cookies to distinguish you from other users of the App. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you use the App and also helps us to improve the App.

For what purposes, and on what legal basis, will your data be processed?

Legal basis on which we collect and process your personal data:

We process your personal data in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and all other applicable national laws.

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1)(a) of the GDPR).

The purpose of processing your personal data:

We will use the journey data form the RE_drive app for assessing your individual driving behaviour and to provide you with driving scores that are reflective of your driving behaviour.

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1)(a) of the GDPR). This enables us to improve functionalities of the App and assist you with any related queries.

The data we collect will be stored and kept for as long as your App remains active. If the app was not active and / or did not collect data for six (6) months, we count you as an inactive user and your data will be deleted without undue delay. We continually review the personal data we hold on a monthly basis and delete or anonymize all personal data that are no longer required. After we deleted or anonymized your personal data, it is not possible for us to link your journeys with your personal data.
