Volvo XC90: Terms of use and data sharing - Media playerVolvo XC90: Terms of use and data sharing

The first time certain services and apps are started, a pop-up window with the heading Terms and conditions and Data sharing may open.

The aim is to inform the user about Volvo's terms of use and data sharing policy. By accepting data sharing, the user accepts that certain information will be sent from the vehicle. This is required for certain services and apps to work with full functionality.

The data sharing function for connected services and apps is disabled by default1. For certain connected services and apps in the vehicle to work, data sharing must be activated. Data sharing can be set from the center display's settings menu or when the services or apps are started in the center display.

Privacy and data sharing

The software update that became available in November 2017 introduced privacy and data sharing settings for connected services and downloaded apps. These settings can be found under Privacy and data in the settings menu in the vehicle's center display.

There, you can choose which connected services will be allowed to share data. Data sharing for downloaded apps can also be disabled there. Note that services and apps cannot be used as intended if data sharing is disabled.

After a factory reset or e.g. a workshop visit or a software update, your data sharing preferences may be reset to default settings. You will then need to reactivate data sharing for connected services and downloaded apps.

NOTE

Settings for privacy and data sharing are unique for each driver profile.
