The data compiled and processed as set out above is considered your “personal data”.

When the personal data has been anonymized, we are not processing any data that can be connected to you, but only aggregated statistical information from Polestar cars in certain regions. We process such information in order to gain insights into how the Video App and the Polestar Services are used and improve your experience of the Video App., i.e. for research and development purposes. We use Google tools to better understand user behavior and improve the usability and reliability of the Video App.

The legal basis for this personal data processing is your consent, which you have provided before the data is collected in relation to the placement of cookies. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time by uninstall or re-install the Video App.

The personal data we process is compiled directly from you. The processing does not include any automatic decision making, such as profiling, of you.
