Biometric Data Retention and Destruction Policy
By combining dash cam footage and advanced machine learning, Samsara’s optional Camera ID feature can learn to assign drivers automatically if a customer obtains any legally required consent from its drivers and activates the feature. Our customers control the installation of Samsara dash cams in their vehicles and control which drivers use dash cam-equipped vehicles. Camera ID relies on images of drivers and facial recognition technology. The facial recognition technology leveraged by Camera ID may collect or store biometric data. Information used by Camera ID is never disclosed other than for the limited purposes described in our Terms of Service and at all times in compliance with applicable law. Camera ID information is used only to assign drivers to vehicles, trips, and safety events in the Samsara dashboard for a specific organization. For more information about Camera ID and suggested safeguards, see Camera ID Driver Consent.
Driver Specific Data
Camera ID information associated with a particular driver will be retained until 184 days after the customer either deactivates the driver from its Samsara account or disables Camera ID, at which point the Camera ID information, including any biometric data, will be permanently deleted.
Customer Level Data
In addition to the driver-specific retention and deletion described above, Camera ID information associated with a particular customer will be retained until 184 days after the customer disables the Camera ID feature, at which point the Camera ID information, including any biometric data, will be permanently deleted.
Our customers control their employees’ data. Our customers’ employees should direct any request to delete Camera ID information outside of the parameters specified above to their employer to communicate with Samsara.
