We use your data to improve our understanding of TomTom users and those who are not yet TomTom users. We do this by first aggregating data from or about you, data from or about other TomTom users and data from third parties, and then analyzing this data to derive insights about behaviour and demographics. These insights are used to improve our products, our website, and our marketing efforts, including online advertising.
The data we use is the data that you have provided via our website and when signing up for a TomTom account. The data does not include any of the data collected and used by TomTom while you are using TomTom products or services, for example your location, navigation or workout data.
The data we use also includes IP-addresses, unique device identifiers, advertising identifiers, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth MAC addresses, cookies and other records of computer activity, as well as indications of your behaviour, interests and demographic. We also use similar data that we receive from others, including YouTube, Facebook, Google and Instagram.
