When we use the term, “Personal Data,” we mean information or data that directly or indirectly identifies, describes, relates to or is reasonably capable of being associated with or can reasonably link to a particular individual, consumer or household.


We offer a service through the App that aids in detecting vehicle crashes and contacting emergency services. We also enable App users to request roadside assistance via a tool called Blink.  When we use the term “Service(s)” we mean, collectively, the services and information that we provide through the App; and our marketing and business development activities, including any social media properties we create, and emails that we send (“Marketing Activities”); and not any third-party services.

We may collect your Personal Data through different means, when you:

We may collect the following types of Personal Data:

By submitting Personal Data, you grant CMT the right to transmit, monitor, retrieve, store and use your information in connection with the operation of the App.


Types of Information We Collect Through Technology:  When you use our App, the App may gather information as follows:

  • Usage Details. Using sensor data, the App may collect data about your types of motion(stationary, walking, running, driving, cycling), speed, acceleration, and direction. When you access and use the App, we may automatically collect certain details of your access to and use of the App, including location data.
  • Device Information. We may collect information about your mobile device and Internet connection, including the device’s unique device identifier, IP address, operating system, browser type, mobile network information, and the device’s telephone number.  An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. IP addresses allows mobile devices, tablets and servers to recognize and communicate with one another. We collect IP address information so that we can properly manage our system and gather information about how our App is being used. Your IP address may be associated with records containing Personal Data.
  • Stored Information and Files. The App also may access metadata and other information associated with other files stored on your device. This may include, for example, photographs, audio and video clips, personal contacts, and address book information.


Location Information. This App collects real-time information about the location of your device. We collect your location information through your device IP address, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS coordinates (e.g., latitude/longitude) available through your mobile device. We may also gather information about your location using other technologies and sensors which may provide us with information about nearby devices, WiFi access points and networks, and nearby cell towers. We collect and maintain location data to provide you the features and functionality of the Services.  If you want to opt-out of the collection of your location data, please adjust your settings in your mobile device to limit the app’s access to your location data. Please see YOUR PERSONAL DATA CHOICES  below. Note, however, that opting out of the App’s collection of location information will disable its location-based features, and as a result, you may not be able to use our Services.


Driving Event Data. We collect sensory, audio and motion data from your smartphone or mobile device, including information from the gyroscope, accelerometer, compass, and possibly Bluetooth, in order to calculate and detect crashes and other driving events. Your mobile device provider may also generate motion classifications which we may access such as whether the device has classified you as walking, running, cycling, etc. This information is referred to as “Motion and Fitness” data (descriptions may vary according to device and platform). If you want to opt-out of the collection of your sensory and motion, please adjust your settings in your mobile device to limit the app’s access to your sensory and motion data. Please see YOUR PERSONAL DATA CHOICES below.

Segment collects screen and click level data that allows us to understand what screens a user visited, how frequently they access the App, how long they spend in the App, and what actions they took in the App. For example, this data allows us to streamline the App and increase the prominence of popular features


If you do not want us to collect this information do not download the App or delete it from your device. Or, you may opt out at any time as provided below in YOUR PERSONAL DATA CHOICES.

We do not monitor or profile visitors to our App or collect, in any automated manner, any special categories of sensitive Personal Data about you.  No automated decision-making, including profiling, is used when processing your Personal Data. We may use your driving behavior to predictively or reactively tune our crash predictions for purposes of providing the Services.  



We may disclose aggregated information that does not identify any individual (and therefore, is not deemed to be Personal Data) without restriction.  We share Personal Data with the following categories of recipients:


Third-party Vendors:  Your Personal Data will only be shared with and processed by our affiliates and non-affiliated third-party service providers as permitted by law and for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. We may disclose Personal Data to certain non-affiliated specialized service providers, including professional advisors, consultants, technical service providers, emergency service providers,  possibly health care providers, and other third parties, who are bound by contractual obligations to keep Personal Data confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them. We may disclose your Personal Data to third-party service providers to provide us with services such as App hosting, including information technology and telephony services, and related infrastructure, customer service, e-mail delivery, auditing and other similar services. We do not share your information with insurance providers. We may also share driving event information with third-party partners for research and analysis purposes.   But we do not share personally identifiable“sensory and motion data” with third parties.

Corporate Affiliates:  We may share your information with our corporate affiliates that are subject to this policy.

Business Transfers:  When applicable, we may share your information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of an App, a merger, consolidation, asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.

With Your Consent or at Your Direction:  We may share information for any other purposes disclosed to you at the time we collect the information or pursuant to your consent or direction.

Other Legal Reasons:  In addition, we may use or disclose your Personal Data as we deem necessary or appropriate: (1) under applicable law; (2) to respond to requests from public and government authorities including public and government authorities; (3) to pursue available remedies or limit damages we may sustain; (5) to protect our operations or those of any of our affiliates; (6) to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of CMT, our affiliates, you and others; and (7) to enforce our terms and conditions.


CMT keeps Personal Data on file, but does not share, sell, license or transmit this information to third parties or external vendors unless required to do so by legal, judicial or governmental proceedings, or to provide the services requested.



We use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to maintain the privacy and security of your Personal Data within our organization.  All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using TLS technology.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our App, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.  We are not responsible for any outcome if you circumvent any privacy settings or security measures. You are responsible for choosing a password of appropriate strength, not sharing or reusing passwords used on other websites or apps and keeping your password confidential. CMT employees will never ask for your password.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet and mobile platforms is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted through our App. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk.

Please note that email is considered a non encrypted (and therefore non-secure) form of communication, and it can be accessed and viewed by others without your knowledge and permission. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use email to communicate information that you consider confidential.  If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below. We will let you know promptly if a breach occurs that may have compromised the privacy or security of your information.



We will retain your Personal Data for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy and in order to provide you the Service(s), and to improve our products and/or services. We will also retain your information to comply with our legal obligations, to conduct audits, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.  



If applicable, CMT may use a third-party payment processor to process any online payments made to us. In connection with the processing of such payments, we do not retain any personally identifiable information or any financial information such as credit card numbers. Rather, all such information will be submitted directly to the third-party payment processor.



You have choices in how your Personal Data is used and shared. You have the right to:

  • Update, access, and delete your account information;
  • Choose whether you wish to receive promotional and newsletter communications; and

You can choose whether or not to allow your device to collect information through tracking technologies. If you disable or refuse cookies or block the use of other tracking technologies, some parts of the App may then be inaccessible or NOT function properly.

• Location Information. You can choose whether or not to allow the App to collect and use real-time information about your device’s location. There are 3 ways you can disable location:

  • During App on-boarding, you can decline location services;
  • At any time, you can go into the Settings App and disable location services globally for all apps; or
  • You can go into the Settings app and disable location services just for the Openroad App. If you block the use of location information, core functionality of the App, including its ability to detect crashes and to identify your location for emergence services,  will not function properly.

If you do not want us to use your email address to promote our own or third parties’ products or services, you can opt-out by sending us an email at You can also always opt-out by logging into the App and adjusting your user preferences in your account profile by checking or un-checking the relevant boxes.

You can opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative (”NAI”) on the NAI’s website

Exercising Access, Data Portability and Deletion Rights:  To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by emailing us at


Verification of Your Identity:  Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.  You may make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. You must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.



We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within thirty (30) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
