Mapillary United States Regional Privacy Notice

Last Updated: December 29, 2022

About this Notice

This United States Regional Privacy Notice (“Notice”) is for people living in the United States and supplements the Mapillary Privacy Policy. This Notice explains how we collect, use, and disclose your Personal Information. It also describes how to exercise your rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act, the Colorado Privacy Act, the Connecticut Act Concerning Personal Data Privacy and Online Monitoring, the Utah Consumer Privacy Act, and the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act. We call those laws collectively the “U.S. Privacy Laws.”

When we say “Personal Information” in this Notice, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked with you, directly or indirectly. Personal Information does not include information that cannot be reasonably linked to you. When data is deidentified (as defined under the U.S. Privacy Laws), we maintain it in deidentified form and do not attempt to reidentify the information.

How we collect, use, and disclose Personal Information

To provide the websites, mobile applications, and other online products and services we offer (collectively, “Services”), we process information about you, including Personal Information. The best way to learn about the types of information we collect and how we use them is to review the Mapillary Privacy Policy.

Subject to the limitations we describe in the Mapillary Privacy Policy, we may disclose your Personal Information for business purposes, with strict restrictions on how our partners can use and disclose the data we provide. We may also disclose it at your direction or in other ways that are in accordance with the U.S. Privacy Laws. We don’t “share” your Personal Information, as defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). We don’t sell any of your Personal Information, and we never will.
