Privacy Protection Experience for Intelligent Connected Vehicles

 

Getting Started

When you choose BYD, we will provide you with clear information about the types of data we collect and how we use it. When you purchase a BYD New Energy Vehicle and start it, a reminder of our Privacy Policy will appear on the welcome page of the screen. This reminder will give you detailed information about our data collection and how we use it.

 

Management of the Software

BYD manages all third-party software that processes your data. For example, when you are navigating with maps or using other third-party software, we will request that the software provides you with a Privacy Policy and allows you to choose how the software processes your data.

 

Data Minimization

When using a voice-activated smart service while driving, the vehicle systems prioritize collecting only the necessary data to perform specific functions. For instance, the voice assistant remains inactive until activated either by pressing a physical button or speaking a specific keyword. This approach ensures minimal data collection and enhances user control.

 

Safe Driving

Our panoramic camera offers precise information about the road conditions surrounding your vehicle, such as turning, merging, and coming to a stop while driving. This improves driving safety by providing you with a better understanding of your surroundings. Cameras inside and outside your vehicle process data locally at the vehicle end. In addition, the vehicle's panoramic camera does not store captured data and only collects real-time information on road conditions when you use it.

 

Parking Security

When you park your car, use the mobile app to check if your windows are closed. If they're not, click "close windows" and enter your password in the app. This will command the vehicle to close the windows and keep it secure.
