How we use your driving data
At Aura, we are committed to protecting your data. When you buy car insurance through us, we ask you to install a black box device in your car which collects data on your driving. This helps us calculate your insurance premiums.
What driving data we collect
Your device collects data on:
- The date and time you drive your car.
- The locations you drive your car to.
- The speed you drive.
- How you brake.
- How you accelerate.
- How you drive around corners.
- Distance travelled.
- The type and speed limit of roads the vehicle travels on.
- Device tampering.
We only collect this data to calculate your driving score and ensure your insurance premium reflects your driving style. In some cases, where we identify poor driving behaviour, we may cancel your policy. So, driving responsibly will not only help keep you safe on the roads, it can help keep insurance premium low.
How your driving data can help you
Your device also has crash detection which notifies us if you’re vehicle has had an impact, so that Aura, or one of our partners can contact you if you need further support.
It can also help locate your vehicle if it’s been stolen or you simply forget where you’ve left it.
Your device collects data about the vehicle and cannot distinguish who is driving it.
