1. Information Collection: The Personally Identifiable Information We Collect
In the course of using this Site or in connection with your purchase and/or operation of an Arcimoto Fun Utility Vehicle (“Vehicle”), you may provide us with personally identifiable information. We collect information from you when you register on our site, place an order, subscribe to our newsletter or fill out a form. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you, and information on your use of and activities at our Site that may be connected with you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information that we collect may include, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, credit card or other billing information, email address and home and business postal addresses. Personal Information may also include information you supply to us concerning your preferences and interests expressed in the course of use of our Site. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.
In addition to Personal Information, following your purchase of a Vehicle, we may also collect certain non-public information about the Vehicle or relating to the use of the Vehicle, such as the Vehicle’s location, speed, direction of travel, service data, odometer reading, mechanical condition, operation and your use of Vehicle features (“Telematics Data”). The Telematics Data is transmitted to Arcimoto, which uses the data to deploy necessary software updates to the Vehicle and to improve functionality. By purchasing the Vehicle, you consent to the collection, retention and use of the Telematics Data by Arcimoto for any lawful purpose. We also may collect, and you may provide to us, data related to the Vehicle that is not associated with you in an identifiable way, such as functionality use, statistics, performance data or quality metrics. You agree that we may record or monitor your Vehicle’s location.
We use the Personal Information and Telematics Data we collect from you or occupants of the Vehicle to, among other things, manage your account, improve occupant and vehicle safety, and other products and services, perform analysis and research purposes, and enhance your overall ownership experience. We will not sell or rent your information to others without your authorization.
You agree we may release your information, including location data, when we are required to do so to comply with the law, in legal proceedings, to respond to subpoenas or court orders, in cooperation with law enforcement agencies, and to enforce the terms of this Agreement and any agreement related to the lease or financing of your Vehicle
