Personal data are the data relating to a person identified or identifiable. If you contact us on behalf of someone else, make sure you have that person’s authorisation to use his/her personal data.
We collect personal data from you, for example when you create an evpass user name (“Green Motion ID” or “EVPASS ID”), buy a product, download a software update, or take part in an online survey. We can also receive personal data about you from suppliers who provide you with services on our behalf, as well as our partners or associated companies.
When you create an evpass user name (“Green Motion ID” or “EVPASS ID”), buy a product, download a software update, use our services or take part in an online survey, we collect personal data that can include your name, your contact details, your username, your preferences for being contacted, your payment card details, information relating to your vehicle, to the way you use our Website, our mobile application or our charging stations (including the location of the service, the charging time, the duration of the charging or information of a technical nature), or information to do with the way you interact with us.
We can also collect accurately the location of your computer, mobile application or evpass device, particularly when using GPS, Bluetooth and your IP address, as well as the locations of the Wi-Fi stations and relay masts. Unless we have your consent these location data are always treated anonymously.
We use your personal data for the following reasons:
When you create an account, use our stations or buy one of our products, we use your personal data to offer you these services, as well as billing and the support we can be induced to provide you with, where appropriate. The use of your personal data, including your date of birth, may help verify your identity, identify users and decide on the appropriate services. For example, we can use the date of birth to determine the age of the holder of an evpass user name.
Payments by credit or debit card are managed by Saferpay (SIX Payment Services AG, Hardturmstrasse 201, 8021 Zürich) and governed by that company’s terms and conditions (https://www.six-payment-services.com/en/services/legal/privacy-statement.html). We have no access to credit or debit card details.
From time to time, your personal data may be used to send you important notifications, such as communications about your purchases and changes to our terms and conditions and commitments. If you use our mobile application we can also send you notifications to these ends on the application. These communications are not for commercial purposes and you will continue to receive them even if you ask not to be sent commercial communications from evpass.
We will also use your personal data if we contact you after you have sent us a request, filled in an online form via our Website or contacted us on social media. Your opinion is important to us, and we could also send you an e-mail or an SMS sometimes to ask your opinion.
