Friendly Captcha 
Description and scope of the data processing: 
On our website we use „Friendly Captcha“, a service provided by Friendly Captcha GmbH, Am Anger 3-5, 82237 Woerthsee. 
The use of Friendly Captcha is supposed to make it more difficult for bots to use our website, in particular to fill out our online forms. For this purpose, we use a so-called widget which, when our website is visited, causes a “puzzle task” to be sent to the user’s device. The user’s device solves the puzzle task and sends the solution back to our web server. The following log data is processed: 

  • http request header data, origin and referrer URL, 
  • Date and time of the request, 
  • hash value (one-way encryption) of the IP address, 
  • Number of requests from the hashed IP address, 
  • answer to the puzzle task solved by the device.Additional information is available here. 
     

The puzzle task is always sent from the nearest server, i.e. if you visit our website from outside the EU, the Data is usually also exchanged with a server outside the EU; conversely, data processing takes place on EU servers if you visit our website from the EU. In the former case, appropriate safeguards have been put in place to ensure an adequate level of data protection (conclusion of EU standard contractual clauses, EU-US Data Privacy Framework certification). 
Further information you can find  here .

Purposes of the data processing:
The use of Friendly Captcha makes it more difficult for bots to use our website, especially to fill out our website forms. As a result, the protection of our website against abusive automated spying, SPAM and malicious attacks is increased. The use of Friendly Captcha is therefore necessary to improve the security of our website.

Legal basis:
We use Friendly Captcha on the basis of Art. 6 sec. 1 f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in making abuse, malicious attacks and SPAM more difficult.

Term of storage and control options:
The widget we use does not set any cookies on your device. Your IP address is only stored in hashed form. Your Data will be deleted after 30 days at the latest.

Matomo
Description and scope of the data processing:
On our website we use the cookieless tracking of the free web analysis software “Matomo“. For this purpose, a hash value is obtained from the following user information: operating system, browser, browser plugins, shortened IP address and browser language. This hash value is temporarily stored as a so-called config_id in our Matomo database and compared with the config_ids of the visitors of the last 30 minutes.

On this basis, we receive aggregated reports of the usage behavior of the website users in the Matomo dashboard, in particular: user numbers (restricted statement, as users are recognized as new website visitors after 30 minutes); (sub)websites visited; user activities on the website (e.g. newsletter subscription, download); length of time users spend on the website; keywords entered to find the website; user behaviour on the website; devices used when visiting our website, including device settings (screen resolution, operating system, browser used).

Legal basis: 
We use Matomo on the basis of legitimate interests (Art. 6 Sec. 1 f GDPR). Our legitimate interest lies in the aforementioned purposes. 

Term of storage and control options: 
The config_id is valid for a maximum of 24 hours, whereby the config_ids are only compared for a 30-minute time window.

If we receive Data in the context of a report, we process the information provided to us. As a rule, this will be name, company affiliation, conduct of a person and, if applicable, contact details. 

The reports are recorded, processed and managed in the CMS (see below under section IV. “Which Data is processed in the CMS?”). 

Purposes of the data processing: 
The provision of internal reporting channels serves to uncover misconduct. Employees are given the opportunity to report violations through channels they are familiar with. 

Legal basis: 
The data processing described above is based on Sec. 11, 13 of the German Whistleblower Protection Act (= Hinweisgeberschutzgesetz) or, insofar as a report is not covered by the scope of the Act, the data processing is based on legitimate interests (Art. 6 Sec. 1 f GDPR), namely the detection and prevention of misconduct. 

Term of storage and control options:
We only store the Data in the CMS as long as we need it for the purposes described above (see section IV. “Which Data is processed in the CMS?” below).

IV. Which Data is processed in the CMS?

Description and scope of the data processing: 
In the CMS, we record, process and manage all reports that are received by or forwarded to our Compliance Organisation. The reports usually contain the following Data: 

Reporter: 
If the report is not anonymous, a compliance file contains the name and contact details of the reporter. 

Persons about whom reports are received, including witnesses: 
The compliance files contain all information relevant to the handling of the case that we have received in the context of a report and have investigated in the course of the investigation. This information will usually include the name, company affiliation, conduct of a person and, if applicable, contact details. 

All incoming reports are recorded in the CMS, the further proceeding is specified depending on the individual case and the processing steps and results are documented. Thus, it is possible that cases are immediately closed by telephone or written communication or that further information is requested from the reporter. If necessary, other persons are involved who have a certain proximity to the case or who have the necessary knowledge and expertise for the case. This consultation of the persons is recorded and filed in the CMS. 

If necessary, a hearing of the persons named in the report (witnesses, persons reported) will be conducted. This will be documented in the CMS. 

Purposes of the data processing: 
The recording of reports, as well as their handling and management, serves to uncover misconduct. The use of the CMS provides efficient processing and management of the reports and central storage of the information for any administrative / criminal or miscellaneous litigation proceedings. 

Legal basis: 
The data processing described above is carried out on the basis of Sec. 11, 13 of the German Whistleblower Protection Act (= Hinweisgeberschutzgesetz) or, insofar as a report is not covered by the scope of the Act, on the basis of legitimate interests (Art. 6 Sec. 1 f GDPR), namely the detection and prevention of misconduct as well as common processing and administration of all incoming reports. 

Term of storage and control options: 
Data related to the investigation will only be kept as long as necessary for the purposes of the investigation or for the defence against third-party claims or for the enforcement of claims of IAV. After an investigation is completed, the Data used will be retained for the following periods: 

  • If a report is clearly unjustified or if it is certain after an investigation that no violation of the rules has occurred, the report and the relevant compliance file will be deleted within two months.
  • If, after an investigation, it is certain that a violation of the rules has occurred, or if this cannot be proven due to a lack of evidence, the compliance file will be deleted five years after the end of the investigation.

V. Who receives your Data and to which countries is your Data transferred? 

Departments within IAV Group 
Within IAV, access to Data shall only be provided to those departments / persons who require this for the purposes described. 

Authorizations are granted according to the need-to-know principle. 

With regard to the involvement / hearing of other persons, the IAV internal principles of confidentiality and need-to-know apply: All persons involved in the conduct of an investigation must treat all information obtained in the course of the investigation as confidential. This applies in particular to information that could directly or indirectly lead to conclusions about the identity of the reporter or the persons concerned. The group of those who are informed about the conduct of the investigation must be kept as small as possible. For example, the respective line managers of persons concerned are only informed about the conduct of the investigation if this appears suitable, necessary and appropriate to achieve the purpose of the investigation. 

In the case of reports that concern one of our affiiates, the employees responsible for compliance at the respective affiliate are generally involved in the processing of the report. In this process, Data is transferred to the country in which the affiliate is located (EU countries: Poland, France, Sweden; non-EU countries: USA, China, Brazil, South Korea, Japan). With regard to the joint use of the whistleblower system, we have concluded data protection agreements within the IAV Group using the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses. In this way, we can contractually ensure that a comparable level of data protection exists within the IAV Group. 

Service providers that support us 
We use software from service providers for our operations. Within the scope of their system maintenance, access to the Data is technically possible. 

These service providers are contractually obliged to maintain confidentiality and fulfill the requirements under data protection law. Service providers that are processors have signed a contract, which guarantees that Data will be processed strictly according to our instructions. 

Investigating authorities 
In addition, we may transfer your Data to investigating/ competent authorities in compliance with data protection law, in particular if we are legally obliged to do so in order to prosecute criminal offences (e.g. in the case of requests for information, seizures) or if this is necessary to defend against accusations or to avert danger / prevent crimes. 

VI. What rights do you have and how can you exercise these? 

A. Withdrawal of consent 
You can withdraw any consent you have granted to the processing of your Data at any time and with effect for the future. Please note that the withdrawal will have no impact on the legality of the previous data processing and that it does not extend to such data processing for which statutory authorisation exists and which can therefore be performed without your consent. 

B. Other rights of data subjects 
According to Art. 15 to 21 and 77 GDPR and if the conditions are met, you are furthermore entitled to the following rights. 

Access
You can at any time demand provision of information on the Data of yours that we process and demand a copy of the Data stored on you, Art. 15 GDPR. Please note that further copies of the Data stored on you may be subject to a charge. 

Correction: 
You can demand the correction of incorrect Data as well as the completion of incomplete Data according to Art. 16 GDPR. 

Erasure: 
You can demand the erasure of your Data. Please note that the erasure does not include Data required for the execution and processing of contracts and to assert, exercise and defend against legal claims as well as Data for which statutory, supervisory or contractual retention obligations exist, Art. 17 GDPR. 

Restriction of processing
You can under certain circumstances demand the restriction of the processing, e.g. if you believe that your Data is incorrect, if the processing is illegal or you have raised a complaint about the data processing. This will mean that without your consent your Data may only be processed in a very restricted way, e.g. to assert, exercise or defend against legal claims or to protect the rights of other natural or legal entities, Art. 18 GDPR. 

Objection to the data processing : You have the option to object to the data processing for direct advertising purposes at any time. In addition, you can object at any time to data processing performed on the basis of a legitimate interest if there is particular reason for doing so, Article 21 GDPR.

C. Contact details
You can exercise your rights through the contact details mentioned above 
under I.

D. Right to appeal to the competent data protection supervisory authority
If you, for example, consider that the processing of your Data is illegal or that your rights described above are not granted to you to the required extent, you have the right to file a complaint to the competent data protection supervisory authority.

C. Apply
Description and scope of the data processing: To apply for a job at IAV, all you need to do is fill in the mandatory fields marked with an asterisk in the application form (first and last name, salutation, email address, phone number, address, earliest entry date, country of residence and password), upload your CV and accept the terms of use. We will then assign you a candidate ID. We also record how you found out about the job you are applying for (including the name of the recommending IAV employee, if applicable).

You can add the optional information to your candidate profile later. This includes:

  • your qualifications (highest level of education, university, place of study),
  • language skills (language and level),
  • information about mobility (willingness to travel, relocate, driver’s license),
  • and your preferred place of work.

You can access your candidate profile at any time by clicking on the “Apply” button on our website: “You are already registered as a user? Please log in here”. Or, you can click on “Job Alert” at the very bottom of our website, which will take you to the login page.

Purposes of the data processing: 
On the one hand, we collect the first and last name and the e-mail address in order to be able to assign the created user account or candidate profile to a particular person. On the other hand, we process the first and last name and the e-mail address for handling the application and for completing the application process. The same applies to the further information. We record the country in which you live in order to be able to present our applicant portal to you in a suitable language. With the help of the candidate ID, we can assign you internally and record when you last logged in in order to be able to delete your account or candidate profile after a longer period of inactivity (see section “Term of storage and control options” below).

Legal Basis: 
The data processing takes place in order to enable you to use our applicant portal and thus to participate in our application process (Sec. 26 Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz “BDSG”) in conjunction with Art. 6 sec. 1 b GDPR). Optional information supplements the documents required for your application. We take these into account as part of the application process (Sec. 26 (1) BDSG in connection with Art. 6 sec. 1 f) GDPR).

Term of storage and control options: 
We store your data as long as your user account / candidate profile exists in our applicant portal. You have the option to change or delete individual details and documents in your candidate profile or to delete your account / candidate profile as a whole at any time. In this case we will delete your Data. If you do not use your user account for a period of 18 months, it will be automatically deleted. We will inform you by e-mail about the imminent deletion.

If no employment relationship is established, we will store your application documents for a maximum of six (6) months from the date of notification of rejection, after which your Data will be anonymised and your application documents deleted, so that no more conclusions can be drawn about your person. The anonymised data remains in the system for analyses purposes, in particular to be able to track how many candidates were interested in a vacancy or how many candidates took part in an interview.

If you withdraw your application, your application is initially given the status “inactive” in the applicant portal until after six months at the latest, your Data will be automatically made anonymous and your application documents will be deleted.

Your application documents will be deleted from the applicant portal at the same time as your user account / candidate profile is deleted (see previous section D. under “Term of Storage and control options”).

D. Application process (interview scheduling, survey on the application process, subsequent data processing, specifics of applications at IAV-S and C4D)

Description and scope of the data processing:
a) Recording the application process and interview scheduling:
We record the positions for which you apply and the course of the application process, in particular whether and when you have been invited for an interview, the feedback/ general impression on your application and interview from the HR staff and internal participants in the recruitment process. We also store the correspondence we have had with you.

We plan our interviews directly in our applicant portal. To do this, we select an interview date in the system (your respective interview partners are filed). The interview partners participating in your interview will receive an email, to which your CV will usually be attached. The interview partners will only use your CV to prepare for the interview and will delete it from their e-mail inbox after the interview.

b) Survey on experiences in the application process
We are always trying to improve our application process. We would therefore be grateful if you would take part in a survey about your experience in the application process once you have completed it.

After completing the application process, you will receive a final email – at best with an offer of employment. At the end of this final email, you will be informed that we may contact you in the near future to ask you to take part in a survey and that you have the opportunity to object to being contacted again. If you wish to take part in the survey, i.e. if you do not object, we will send you an email with a link to the survey as soon as possible, usually within the next two weeks. The evaluation of the survey is anonymous – we cannot draw any conclusions about the participants. The collection of demographic, i.e. “additional information” (gender; age category; highest level of education; area of current employment; professional experience) is used exclusively to get a detailed evaluation overview according to these criteria, so that we can determine whether our application process is equally well suited to all groups of applicants. A group-specific presentation is only made if the number of participants in a group is large enough that re-identification is not possible.

c) Export control
If a hiring is made, your Data will be checked against official embargo and sanctions lists in the context of export control (see also below in section III. “Who receives your Data?” under C.).

d) Internal candidate profile
If a hiring is made, an internal candidate profile is created with the following data: First and last name, e-mail address, telephone number. You can complete this profile and use it to participate in the internal job market (see also the privacy policy for internal applicants).

e) Particularities of applications to vacancies of IAV-S and C4D:
If you apply for a job vacancy at IAV-S or C4D, we, as the operator of the application portal, will process your application documents. We then release your application documents via the applicant portal for the company in whose area of responsibility the position is located. Within IAV GmbH and the company where you have applied for a position, only those persons have access to your Data who are internally involved in filling the position (persons responsible for the vacancy).

Purposes of the data processing: 
We use your Data for the purpose of processing your application and to carry out the application procedure. We undertake checks against official embargo and sanctions lists in order to comply with legal requirements. In addition, we would like to find out about the experiences of our applicants during the application process so that we can continuously improve our application process.

Legal basis: 
The data processing is carried out for the purpose of carrying out the application process (Sec. 26 BDSG in connection with Art. 6 sec. 1 b) GDPR). Optional information supplements the documents required for your application. We take these into account as part of the application process (Sec. 26 (1) BDSG in connection with Art. 6 sec. 1 f) GDPR). The embargo and sanctions list checks are carried out to fulfil legal obligations (Art. 6 sec. 1 c GDPR, Sec. 26 (1) sentence 1 BDSG in connection with EU requirements as well as the German Foreign Trade and Payments Act). Participation in our survey on experiences in the application process is voluntary. If you have decided to participate, we will conduct the survey and its evaluation on the basis of legitimate interests, namely the assessment and improvement of our application process (Art. 6 sec. 1 f GDPR).

Term of storage and control options: 
If no employment relationship is established, we will store your application documents for a maximum of six (6) months from the date of notification of rejection, after which your Data will be anonymised and your application documents deleted, so that no more conclusions can be drawn about your person. The anonymised data remains in the system for evaluation purposes, in particular to be able to track how many candidates were interested in a vacancy or how many candidates took part in an interview). If you withdraw your application, your application is initially given the status “inactive” in the applicant portal until after six months at the latest, your Data will be automatically made anonymous and your application documents will be deleted. The surveys on experiences in the application process are carried out close to the end of the application process, which ends with the sending of a final e-mail. After the survey has been completed and evaluated, the personal data processed as part of it is deleted after 8 weeks at the latest. The aggregated evaluations, which do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about the survey participants, are stored by us as long as they are useful for the evaluation of our application process.

If you are hired, your data will be transferred to our HR management systems and used there for the purpose of executing the employment relationship.

E. Share the visibility of your candidate profile (talent pool of IAV GmbH and IAV-S)

Description and scope of the data processing: 
In the application form or later in the settings of your candidate profile you can set for whom your candidate profile should be visible. You can set that

  • only those employees can view your candidate profile who are responsible for appointing someone to the vacancy for which you are applying or have applied (Hiring Manager).
  • our Recruiting Team and Hiring Manager responsible for appointing someone to a vacancy similar to the one for which you are applying or have applied can view your candidate profile.

If you choose to share your candidate profile with our Recruiting Team and other Hiring Managers, you are agreeing to be included in the talent pool of IAV GmbH and IAV-S as well. As a result, our Recruiting Team and selected Hiring Managers are allowed to consider your current candidate profile as part of the application process for open positions at IAV GmbH and IAV-S that match your candidate profile, regardless of any active application by you. Within the talent pool, our Recruiting Team can view suitable candidate profiles based on selected filter criteria (e.g. job level and job field). In addition, your candidate profile can be recommended to those Hiring Managers responsible for vacancies similar to the one you have applied for. There is then the possibility that you will be informed by our Recruiting Team or the Hiring Managers via email about the vacancy(ies) that match your candidate profile, or about upcoming events during which IAV employees are available for conversation. You can then decide to apply to the recommended job(s) or not.

The respective checkbox reads:

“Set your own profile visible for the Recruiting-Team (talent pool of IAV GmbH Ingenieurgesellschaft Auto und Verkehr and IAV Fahrzeugsicherheit GmbH und Co. KG) and other employees responsible for vacancies.“

Ticking the checkbox is voluntary and has no effect on your chances in the application process. You can decide not to tick the checkbox without having to fear any disadvantages. You can change your setting in your candidate profile settings at any time and thus withdraw your consent to the visibility of your candidate profile to our Recruiting Team and to those Hiring Managers responsible for vacancies similar to the one for which you are applying or have applied (including participation in the talent pool) at any time with effect for the future. Please note that the change of setting (your withdrawal) does not affect the legality of the previous view of your candidate profile by our Recruiting Team or selected Hiring Managers. This means that if your candidate profile has already been checked before the change in setting, you may be contacted by us to find out if you are interested in a current vacancy. The candidate profiles available in the talent pool are updated every 24 hours. (The deletion of your application and your internal candidate profile occurs according to the information in the section II. C. “Apply” under “Term of storage and control options”. Setting the visibility of your candidate profile, including participation in the talent pool or consent herein does not change this).

If you would like to be added to the talent pool without applying for a specific vacancy, you can click on “Job Alert” at the very bottom of our website. Clicking on “Create an account to apply for our career opportunities” will take you to our account registration form. If you fill out this form, confirm the corresponding checkbox and click on “Create account”, you will be added to the talent pool even without an active application.

To be able to prove that you have given your consent, we store the time at which you confirmed the checkbox or at which you gave your consent in the settings of your candidate profile, and your IP address.

Purposes of the data processing: 
When the visibility of your candidate profile is shared with our Recruiting Team and other Hiring Managers we can send you e-mails recommending vacancies that match your candidate profile. We can also recommend events where you can talk to our employees and possibly find a suitable position with us through this approach. We store proof of your consent to this on the basis of applicable legal and judicial verification requirements.

Legal basis: 
The legal basis for the data processing is your consent, Sec. 26 BDSG in connection with Art. 6 sec. 1 a) GDPR. The processing for the purpose of proving the consent given is based on Art. 6 Sec. 1 c), Art. 7 GDPR with regard to the sending of emails in conjunction with Para. 7 (2) No. 2 Gesetz gegen den unlauteren Wettbewerb (= German law against unfair competition).

Term of storage and control options: 
You can withdraw your consent at any time with future effect by restricting the visibility of your candidate profile again in your candidate profile settings. If you withdraw your consent, our employees will only have limited access to your candidate profile, namely: only those Hiring Managers who are responsible for filling a position for which you are applying or have applied. The candidate profiles available in the talent pool are updated every 24 hours.

We store proof of the consent given for three years after the end of the year in which we last processed data on the basis of the consent.

F. Request for further information
Description and scope of the data processing: 
When applying or later in your candidate profile settings, you can click that you want to receive notifications of new job postings. You hereby consent to us sending you information on job vacancies at IAV to the e-mail address you provided. You can also click to indicate that you wish to keep informed about career opportunities and events at IAV. In this case, you consent to us sending you information on general career opportunities at IAV and on career events (e.g. trade fairs, career days) by e-mail.

To be able to prove that you have given your consent, we store the time at which you confirmed the checkbox or at which you gave your consent in the settings of your candidate profile, and your IP address.

Purposes of the data processing: 
We process your Data to send you the requested information and to fulfil the applicable legal and judicial verification requirements.

Legal basis: 
The legal basis for the data processing is your consent, Sec. 26 BDSG in connection with Art. 6 sec. 1 a) GDPR; the fulfilment of applicable legal and judicial verification requirements according to Art. 6 Sec. 1 c), Art. 7 GDPR in conjunction with Para. 7 (2) No. 2 Gesetz gegen den unlauteren Wettbewerb (= German law against unfair competition).

Term of storage and control options: 
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by unchecking the box “Keep informed about career opportunities and events” or “Receive notifications of new job postings” in the “Search options and privacy” section of your candidate profile or by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the e-mails. If you withdraw your consent, we will no longer send you the information.

We store proof of the consent given for three years after the end of the year in which we last processed data on the basis of the consent.

G. Use of our applicant portal by persons under the age of 18
Description and scope of the data processing: 
If you are under 18 years of age, you need the consent of your legal representatives to use the application portal and thus to participate in our application processes. You can find a form of the necessary declaration of consent here. In addition to your name, the first and last names of your legal representatives must be stated in the declaration of consent. Please upload the declaration of consent signed by your legal representatives when applying. We cannot consider your application without the consent form. If, when checking your application documents, we discover that no declaration of consent from your legal representatives has been uploaded, we will inform you of this by e-mail. If you then do not provide us with the signed declaration of consent from your legal representatives, your Data will be deleted.

Purposes of the data processing: 
We store the consent form of your legal representatives as proof of the existing consent form.

Legal basis: 
The data processing is carried out in order to fulfil the legal requirements of the protection of minors (Sec. 6 1 c GDPR in connection with the protection of minors regulations).

Term of storage and control options: 
We store the declaration of consent of your legal representatives for the duration of your training period / employment at IAV. You have the option to change or delete individual details and documents in the candidate profile or to delete the user account / candidate profile altogether at any time. If you delete your legal representatives’ declaration of consent, you will not be able to participate in our application processes. If you do not use your candidate profile for a period of 18 months, your user account will be deleted automatically. We will notify you of the impending deletion by e-mail.

If you are hired, your Data will be transferred to the HR management systems and will be used for the purposes of implementing the employment relationship.

For information on the deletion of applications to individual vacancies, please see section II. C. above.

H. Use of the Applicant Portal by Personnel Service Providers (“Agencies”)
If you have commissioned a personnel service provider (“agency“) with the placement of jobs, our applicant portal can be used by the agency to initiate an application process between you and us. Our applicant portal contains special vacancies for which the agencies can propose applicants. For this purpose, the agency commissioned by you creates a so-called “rump profile” of you in which, in addition to your name and e-mail address, your CV in particular is entered by the agency. You start into our application process with this “rump profile” and will then be asked by email to create a complete candidate profile in our applicant portal (for the individual data processing in connection with a candidate profile and applications, as well as the purpose, legal basis and term of storage and control options, see section C. above; the information there applies to your ” rump profile ” as well).

Camera test drives

Performance of camera test drives

We, IAV, are one of the world’s leading engineering service providers for the automotive industry. Our core competencies include solutions suitable for series production in all areas of electronics, powertrain and vehicle development. Since 1995 we have been researching various technologies around automated driving. In this context, the recording of the vehicle environment during test drives is also indispensable for us.

When carrying out these camera test drives, it is unavoidable that you as a person and/or your personal data, such as the license plates of your vehicle, are visible on the recordings, possibly in the background. The identification of your person is not the subject of our data processing. According to the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), however, we are obliged to inform you how we handle these recordings.

The protection of your personal data (“Data”) is very important to us. This Privacy Policy is designed to give you an overview of which Data we collect and process when you visit our websites and contact us and what rights you have in relation to the processing of your Data.

I. Who we are and how you can contact us?

We,

IAV GmbH Ingenieurgesellschaft Auto und Verkehr („IAV“)
Carnotstraße 1
10587 Berlin
are responsible for protecting your Data.
If you have any questions regarding the processing of data, regarding your rights or this Privacy Policy, please do not hesitate to contact our Group Data Protection Officer. He can be reached
By post at:
IAV GmbH Ingenieurgesellschaft Auto und Verkehr
Datenschutzbeauftragter
Carnotstraße 1
10587 Berlin

As well as by email at: Datenschutzbeauftragter@iav.de.

II. Which Data is processed during camera test drives?

When we do camera test drives, we use cam

era (sensors) on and in the vehicle to create recordings. The recordings are made both on internal test sites and in public traffic areas (usually on public roads). You as a person and/or your Data, e.g. vehicle license plate or nameplate on the front door of a building or inscriptions on building facades may be recorded.

III. For which purposes do we process the Data?

The Data is processed for research and development purposes mainly in the field of automated driving:

Automated driving is a hopeful aspect to meet the increasing mobility needs of our society. However, an automated vehicle must be able to cope with a number of complex situations, including determining and maintaining vehicle spacing and recognizing lanes and obstacles. Camera test drives help us to develop systems that meet these requirements.

The recordings we produce are used to improve the analysis of the environment in which automated vehicles will move in the future and to test existing tools and tools that are currently in the development process. For this purpose, it is necessary to record the road conditions and the other participants in road traffic. In order to exclude risks in the future, elaborately programmed control systems must therefore be developed. The recordings thus make a decisive contribution to further improving safety in the field of automated driving.

Video recordings are used to develop, for example, systems for detecting the surroundings of automated vehicles. In addition to cameras, this also includes laser and ultrasonic sensors for distance measurement and for processing further information from the vehicle’s surroundings.

In addition, camera test drives are useful for analyzing typical situations in road traffic and then simulating them with the help of artificial intelligence. In this way, automated vehicles learn to better assess their environment.

Finally, camera movements can be used to test existing vehicle features. For example, it is now possible to distinguish objects from persons or to detect the direction of pedestrians and thus react to certain traffic situations.

IV. On which legal basis do we process the Data?

We process the Data on the basis of legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Sec. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the execution of the research and development projects described under III.
