Vortex IOT Limited (“Vortex”) respects your privacy rights and is committed to protecting personal data.
1. What this Privacy Notice covers
This Privacy Notice aims to give you information about the personal data we may collect and process in relation to:
- The services we provide to our clients.
- This website (https://vortexiot.com)
2. How we capture data
Vortex takes steps to ensure that the collection of personal data is minimised and personal data is not stored nor processed as part of the services it provides to its clients.
The VTX City product provides continuous mapping of transport and urban infrastructure. By nature of its purpose, the unit contains a HD camera pointed directly at the road surface and kerbside, and not towards buildings.
To achieve this purpose the HD camera may incidentally capture images of pedestrians or vehicles. This footage is fully redacted before it is transferred and stored on to our secure network.
If you have any individual privacy concerns please contact the Data Protection Officer, details of how to do this are in Section 4.

5. Protecting your information
Data security is of great importance to us and to protect your data we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial controls to safeguard and secure data collected through our website or otherwise.
You should note that when using the website and our related services, your information may travel through third party infrastructures that are not under our control. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies.
We use high level encryption software on our IT networks to prevent access to your personal information. Unfortunately, the internet is never a completely secure environment. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that hackers or unauthorised personnel will not gain access to your personal information despite our best efforts.
We have put in place confidentiality clauses or confidentiality agreements (including data protection obligations) with our third-party service providers and require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law.
Notwithstanding the security measures that we take, it is important to remember that the transmission of data via the internet may not be completely secure and that you are advised to take suitable precautions when transmitting personal data to us via the internet.
