  2. What is personal information?
    1. In this Privacy Policy, "personal information" has the meaning set out in the Privacy Act. Essentially, personal information is information or an opinion about an individual who is reasonably identifiable.
  3. What types of personal information do we collect?
    1. The types of personal information we collect from you depend on the circumstances in which the information is collected.

    3. We may also collect information of your device and/or location as/when you may be using our service.

We use the GPS Unit to track the vehicle (and collect data such as fuel level, location, speeds and impact data) until it is returned to carbar. We use third parties in connection with the tracking and monitoring of data from GPS Units. More information on this is set out in our Subscription Terms and Conditions.
