  1. DEFINITIONS

“Data” means the information Toyota Ireland collect from your Mobile Device as set out in Clause 4;

“Merchant” means any nominated supplier in the Republic of Ireland whereby the points obtained using the App can be redeemed by the user for rewards;

“Mobile Device” means the smartphone mobile device onto which the App is downloaded and installed;

“Toyota Ireland” means Toyota Ireland Unlimited Company, Company No. 37417, with a registered office at Lexus House, Killeen Road, Dublin 12;

“We/Us/Our” means Toyota Ireland; and

“You/Your/User” – the user of the App who has downloaded the App onto his/her Mobile Device.

 

  1. USE OF THE APP

It is an offence to hold a mobile phone in your hand or support it with another part of your body when you are driving. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD THE MOBILE DEVICE BE HANDLED WHEN DRIVING.

The App aims to change the behaviour of people who physically interact with their Mobile Device while driving by incentivising them not to do so.

Users of the App earn points for every kilometre driven that they do not physically interact with their Mobile Device.

The App collects data about the start and end point of the journey, the route and orientation of the Mobile Device and interactions with the Mobile Device as more particularly set out in Clause 4. Any data collected is collected solely for the purposes of improving the User experience, usability and performance of the App and the redemption of rewards, and not for any other reason including marketing purposes. None of the data collected will be shared by Toyota Ireland with any third parties.

The App rewards the user with points based on an algorithm which is the property of Toyota Ireland.

The rewards offered, points awarded and points required to redeem rewards are subject to change at any time.

The number of points earned and rewards available to be redeemed are listed within the Rewards area of the App.

The App begins tracking user activity for the journey when the user clicks on the start button within Journey Tracker on the App prior to driving.

The Mobile Device will vibrate (provided this is a function available and enabled on the Mobile Device) to signal tracking for that journey has commenced. The App uses GPS location tracking to assess the start and end point of the journey, how many kilometres the Mobile Device is covering whilst in motion, and uses the gyroscope function of the Mobile Device to assess whether the Mobile Device has been lifted up or interacted with whilst the tracking function is active.

The user is instructed to place the Mobile Device face down in a safe and secure position in the vehicle. If the Mobile Device is not placed face down in a safe and secure position, points for the journey may not be earned.

The App will begin to calculate the number of points earned for that journey when the user clicks on the finish button, at the end of the journey. By pressing the finish button the user is declaring that the journey is completed.

The number of points achieved for a successful journey will be saved in the user’s account within the App under Journey History. This will include data such as the start point and end point of journey which are approximations. This feature is to help users identify and differentiate between each journey and the number of points awarded for each journey.

 

If during the driving period, the user lifts up, touches, swipes and/or physically interacts with the Mobile Device or screen of the Mobile Device in any way, no points will be rewarded for the journey. The user may however connect and use their Mobile Device through Bluetooth while using the App but should connect to any such device prior to starting their journey.

All points and rewards claimed must be redeemed within 12 months of completion of the particular journey to which such points and rewards were obtained. The User’s journey data is kept on the Toyota Ireland database for a maximum period of 13 months, which includes a grace period of 1 month, to allow sufficient time for the redemption of rewards following the expiration of the 12 month redemption period. After this period, the journey data will be permanently deleted. Before the expiration of the redemption period, User data can also be deleted on request by the User by contacting Toyota Ireland by email at faceitdown@toyota.ie.

The App should not be used as a navigation app, GPS or direction indicator.

Users should use common sense when driving and not change their driving patterns with the intent of affecting the data collected by the App. Not only will this result in bad data, it may also result in damage to you, your vehicle and/or your Mobile Device. Toyota Ireland accepts no responsibility for any damage to you, your vehicle or your Mobile Device while using this App.

Tampering with the data collection methodology will result in cancellation of your account and all points earned will be voided.

Toyota Ireland cannot accept any responsibility for points not awarded through the App.

The maximum number of points that can be rewarded in a 12 month period for an individual cannot exceed 20,000 points or as specified by Toyota Ireland who reserve the right to amend the terms at any point in time. Please refer to the terms or FAQ area within the App to verify the number of points that can be redeemed in a 12 month period.

You are solely responsible for ensuring that your App username and password login details and Facebook credentials (if applicable) are kept confidential and safe. Toyota Ireland will not be responsible for misuse of your username and/or password. You may not use the content or services made available in the App in ways that might violate our intellectual property rights, a third party’s intellectual property rights, harm our systems, or abuse other App users. Any trade marks shown in the App are the property of their respective owners.

  1. INFORMATION COLLECTION AND PROCESSING

We draw your attention to this section so that you understand how Toyota Ireland use the information collected by the App. By downloading and activating the App on your Mobile Device, you are consenting to the collection, storage and use of data collected from your Mobile Device.

A User’s journey data is kept on the Toyota Ireland database for a period of 13 months, which includes a 1 month grace period, to allow sufficient time for the redemption of rewards following the expiration of the 12 month redemption period. After the expiration of this period, the User’s journey data will be permanently deleted. Before this redemption period has expired, data can also be deleted by request from the User by contacting Toyota Ireland by email at faceitdown@toyota.ie.

Any data collected is collected solely for the purposes of improving the User experience, usability and performance of the App and the redemption of rewards, and not for marketing purposes. None of the data collected will be shared by Toyota Ireland with any third parties.

If you wish to prevent collection of any data through the App, please ensure that you uninstall the App from the relevant Mobile Device as data collected when the App is switched on will be attributed to you. Toyota Ireland accepts no responsibility resulting from failure to do so.

Following registration and activation of the App, Toyota Ireland may collect and store all or some of the following User data for the following purposes:

  • User’s Name – to be used for the User’s profile and for addressing operational email communications to the User regarding the App;
  • User’s Email Address – to be used within the User’s profile and to send operational email communications to the User regarding the App only. The User’s email address will not be used to send any marketing communications or shared with any third parties. For further information please refer to section 5 (Communications);
  • County – to determine downloads by county;
  • Password – for the User to access the App;
  • Facebook ID (if using Facebook login) – for the User to access the App if he/she signed up through Facebook;
  • Journey Data – Once the User clicks on the Start button, the App begins tracking using GPS until the User clicks on the Finish button. When the User clicks on the Finish button to signal that the journey has finished, the App stops tracking through GPS. The App makes note of the start and end points of a journey. The App uses these 2 points to form a text address for a description of the start and end point (can be approximate) which will be displayed in the journey history. This feature is to help users identify and differentiate between each journey and the number of points awarded for each journey. As set out above, the User’s journey history will be deleted one month after the expiry of the period for redeeming rewards (13 months after a particular journey).
    Data that is sent from the App to store in servers can include; distance, end point of journey (can be approximate), number of points per journey, start point of journey (can be approximate), journey start date and time, journey end date and time along with user id.  Any data collected is collected solely for improving the App user experience, usability and performance and redemption of rewards only related to the App and not for any other reason including marketing purposes. None of the data collected will be shared by Toyota Ireland with any third parties.
    Data regarding each successful journey in which points were awarded is saved in the user account section of the App and is accessible to the user under Journey History. This will include data such as: date of journey, end point of journey (can be approximate), start point of journey (can be approximate) and number of points per journey.
    The data regarding journey data is kept on the Toyota Ireland database for a maximum period of 13 months, which includes a grace period of 1 month, to allow sufficient time for the redemption of rewards within the 12 month redemption period. After this period, the journey data will be permanently deleted. Before this period, data can also be deleted on request from the User only by contacting Toyota Ireland by email at faceitdown@toyota.ie.

Toyota Ireland will maintain the confidentiality and security of your personal information in accordance with the Data Protection Acts 1998 and 2003 or any amendment, re-enactment or extension of such Acts unless otherwise required to by law/an Garda Siochana (in accordance with section 8 of the Data Protection Acts).

Data collected when the App is initiated on your Mobile Device will be attributed to you.
