Public Data Collection
We collect publicly available data to support our Artificial Intelligence (AI) projects. AI technologies require access to large volumes of high-quality data to learn how to perceive, classify, and navigate among people, objects, and scenes. Our public data collection is critical for safe, reliable, and accurate development. Images or video collected are exclusively used for the purposes of these AI projects, and are not used or connected to user profiles for our other products and services.
We collect the following publicly available data:
  • Publicly licensed or non-copyrighted images of people, faces, or objects so that we can train our AI models to reliably and accurately classify the content of these images;
  • Public images and audio-video in clearly disclosed locations so that we can train our AI models to reliably and accurately classify people, faces, and public incidents such as accidents or car alarms.
We sometimes share publicly available data with business partners that are also developing AI technology. If we share public data, we require that our partners strictly abide by this Privacy Policy including its restrictions on how such data is used, shared, and stored.
We retain public data for as long as it continues to support our AI projects. If you are a member of the public and wish to exercise any of your privacy rights, please contact us directly at
