Please note, if you interact with an Internet-connected device (“Operator”) using our Services, that property will have its own privacy notice and practices.

We are a global company and may store or transfer your personal information outside both inside and outside of the United States. Certain countries where data is processed may have data protection laws that differ from those in your country. Data transfers outside of the European Economic Area are subject to appropriate guarantees, especially contractual, technical and organizational guarantees, that comply with applicable regulations relating to the protection of personal information. We will not transfer personal information outside of the European Economic Area unless the recipient is subject to suitable safeguards to ensure that the personal information is processed in accordance with applicable law.
Service Providers. We may share personal information with companies that provide services on our behalf, such as website hosting; email services; marketing; advertising; payment processing; data analytics; cloud storage services; employment management; and other services that assist in providing or selling our products and services.

How We Protect Your Personal Information
We implement security measures to protect your personal information against unauthorized access, use, or disclosure which includes physical, administrative, and electronic safeguards. For example, Drover AI is a member of the U.S. Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology, which regularly provides updated standards and best practices around IoT device and cybersecurity and encryption. All data sent to our secure servers is sent over a TLS connection using MGTT or HTTPS protocols, so it is secure by default in transit.
Please be aware that, despite our efforts, no security system is impenetrable. In the event of a security breach, we will promptly notify you and the proper authorities if required by law.

Your rights under the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA)
The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, California Civil Code Sections 1798.100 et seq. (“CCPA”) affords certain rights to you if you are a California resident. This CCPA Notice supplements the information contained in this Privacy Notice and applies to residents of the State of California.
California consumers have the following rights:
- access—twice in a 12-month period—the categories and/or specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you, the categories of sources from which the personal information is collected, the business purpose for collecting the personal information, and the categories of third parties with whom we share personal information, for the 12-month period prior to the request, free of charge; and
- delete personal information under certain circumstances.
Drover AI does not discriminate against users or customers on the basis of their exercising any of their rights afforded by the CCPA, which is further in accordance with California residents’ rights under that statute.
To request access to your personal information or request that we delete your personal information, you may contact us through any of the following methods:
- Via email at [email protected] (include “California Privacy Request” in the subject line)
To protect your personal information, we will verify your identity using the data points you have previously provided to us. Please have this information available so that we can verify your request.
Upon your request, we will delete the personal information we have collected about you, except for situations where specific information is necessary for us to: provide you with a good or service that you requested; perform a contract we entered into with you; maintain the functionality or security of our systems; or comply with or exercise rights provided by the law. The law also permits us to retain specific information for our exclusively internal use, but only in ways that are compatible with the context in which you provided the information to us or that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with us. If we cannot grant your deletion request, we will specify the basis for denial.
You may also authorize an agent to submit a request on your behalf, so long as you provide the authorized agent written permission signed by you to make a request on your behalf, and your authorized agent additionally is able to verify their identity with us.

We may also disclose personal information if we have a good faith belief that there is an emergency involving the danger of death or severe physical injury, and our disclosure of limited information is necessary to prevent that harm.
We may also disclose personal information if we determine in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our rights and pursue available remedies, enforce our terms and conditions, investigate fraud, or protect our operations or users.
