1. Data collection
Arval Active Link’s telematics device allows for the collection of data concerning the use of the vehicle. The device contains GPS technology that registers the GPS position of the vehicle in order to calculate mileage. GPS positions are however only part of the device’s firmware and cannot be accessed by Arval, except in case of theft and after explicit consent of the driver. The device also contains a number of sensors that register data concerning the vehicle’s usage. The device transmits such data to Arval and/or Artel SA (Arval’s subsidiary). Transmission can happen instantaneously or with a time-lag or on special request.

Arval will not disclose the collected data to third parties except to public authorities when such disclosure is justified in a legitimate interest that overrides the interest of the driver, such as theft.
