The retaininghorizon of visual sensor data is nolonger than four hours. The vast majority (98-99.5%)of data is not retained.In case of legal requests (as such term is generallyunderstood under the laws of the EuropeanUnion) or in rare cases of Kiwibot’s valid businessreasons that cannot be solved by othermeans, medium-resolution unobfuscated images may beretrieved by authorized personnel andan audit trail will be kept.
