We have a great respect for privacy and has built extensive protection features into our street level imagery technology, in addition to giving careful consideration to the scope of our data collection.
Our technology, developed in partnership with Microsoft, includes industry-leading automated software and advanced algorithms used to detect and blur faces and license plates to protect individual privacy; images are published only after blurring
Our focus is on key commercial areas, public roads and areas with high Search or Point-of-Interest (POI) concentration
The images captured are the same types that tourists or city residents would take while exploring by bus, car or on foot
In accordance with each country's requirements, NAVTEQ has also allowed the appropriate government officials and non-government privacy advocates in each country to assess these plans so they feel the privacy of their citizens is being safeguarded
