Information collected by our contractors: We use contractors to provide us with services. When contractors are collecting personal information on behalf of Sidewalk, we put in place additional measures to limit the personal information provided by the contractor to Sidewalk Labs. For example, we may hire a survey company to carry out surveys on our behalf, and will instruct the contractor to only provide us with aggregate, non-identifying information. In any case, we remain responsible for the personal information collected on our behalf.
