Your Privacy Matters to Garmin
What data does Garmin collect?
We ask for personal data — such as your name, email address, location, and other information — so you can sign in to your account, receive personalized support, receive important safety information about your devices, and get the most out of our products.
When You Make a Garmin Account
Garmin stores information such as your name, email address, and password so you can sign in, and it helps us verify your account if you call customer support.
When You Buy Products or Subscriptions
When you buy products or subscriptions from Garmin, we ask for information such as your name, address, and phone number so we can get your order processed and shipped to you.
We have third parties verify your address and process your payment information, but Garmin does not store your payment card details. We only use this information to help us fulfill your orders.
When You Sync Products
When you sync your device, we collect data such as your IP address, sync time and date and battery level to help identify and resolve errors or syncing issues and to provide better customer support.
When You Contact Garmin
We know you want to stay off the grid, but we may collect things such as your contact and device information during support calls to ensure that you get the help you need.
When You Use Location Features
Sometimes we need to collect your device’s location. That makes it a lot easier to tell you about things such as weather in your area, nearby traffic and even movie prices near you.
When You Use Auto Navigation
With your consent, Garmin collects information that includes location, direction and speed to help with features such as parking and traffic.
Why does Garmin ask for your personal data?
From providing product support to offering clear directions to your destination, any information we ask you for is used to improve your experience with Garmin.

Does Garmin sell your personal data?
No! We don’t sell your personal data to anyone. And we only share your personal data with others in specific situations.
