  3. PERSONAL INFORMATION WHICH WE COLLECT

     

    1. We collect certain information (which may include Personal Information) about you. The Personal Information which we collect may be provided by you directly (for example, when you register as a User or Transportation Provider, or you otherwise provide Personal Information to us) or by third parties, or be collected automatically when you use the Application. We may collect information in various forms and for various purposes (including purposes permitted under Applicable Law).  

       

      Information obtained from you or from your mobile device directly

      • When you register and create an Account with us using the Application, you have to provide to us certain Personal Information, including your name, physical address, e-mail address, your phone number, and an Account ID and/or password that you will use to access the Application after registration. If you are using the Application as a Transportation Provider, you have to provide to us with additional Personal Information as part of the Transportation Provider onboarding process. This would include details of your Vehicle; licences, approvals, and other authorisations for you to operate the Vehicle and to provide the Transportation Services; your insurance policy; and your bank account for the purposes of receiving User Fees.

      • When you use the Application, you have to provide to us such relevant information as may reasonably be required by us in order for the Application to work. For example,
        • If you are using the Application as a User, you will need to provide us with information as to the type of Transportation Service you seek, and details as to the pick-up and/or delivery.

        • If you are using the Application as a Transportation Provider, in order for the Application to work, you will need to provide us with information as to the Transportation Services you are able to accept orders for at the time, and details as to your current location, and after an order for a Transportation Service placed by a User is accepted by you as the Transportation Provider, you may need to provide us with other data that we need to manage the Application and ecosystem, and to monitor overall usage of the Application.   

        • When a payment is made through the electronic money facility within the Application, if you are the payer, you will provide to us information relating to the payment, such as the type of payment card used, the name of the issuer of that payment card, the name of the Account holder for that payment card, the number of that payment card, and the amount of money paid.

       

      Information collected whenever you use the Application or visit our Website

      • Whenever you use the Application or visit our Website, we may collect certain technical data concerning your usage such as, internet protocol (IP) address, information as webpages previously or subsequently viewed, duration of every visit/session, the internet device identity (ID) or media access control address, and also information regarding the manufacturer, model and operating system of the device that you use to access the Application or our Website.

      • Whenever you use the Application or visit our Website, certain information may also be collected on an automated basis using cookies. Cookies are small application files stored on your computer or mobile device. We use cookies to track user activity to enhance user interface and experience. Most mobile devices and internet browsers support the use of cookies; but you may adjust the settings on your mobile device or internet browser to reject several types of certain cookies or certain specific cookies. Your mobile device and/or browser would also enable to you to delete at any time whatever cookies have previously been stored.  However, doing so may affect the functionalities available on the Application or our Website.

      • Whenever you use the Application through your mobile device, we will track and collect your geo-location information in real-time. In some cases, you will be prompted or required to activate the Global Positioning System (GPS) on your mobile device to enable us to give you a better experience in using the Application (for example, to give you information as to how close a Transportation Provider is to you).

      • If You use the Application as a Transportation Provider, we collect your geo-location information when the Application is running in the foreground (i.e., the Application is open and on-screen) and in the background (i.e., the Application is open but not on screen), so long as you are signed into the Application.

      • If You use the Application as a User, we collect your geo-location information when the Application is running in the foreground. We endeavour to cease collection of your geo-location information when the Application is in the background, but such information may still be collected unintentionally. You can always choose to disable the geo-location tracking information on your mobile device temporarily. However, this may affect the functionalities available on the Application.

       

      Information collected from third parties

      • We may also collect Your Personal Information from third parties (including our agents, vendors, suppliers, contractors, partners and any others who provide services to us, perform functions on our behalf, or whom we collaborate with). In such cases, we will only collect Your Personal Information for or in connection with the purposes for which such third parties are engaged or the purposes of our collaboration with such third parties (as the case may be), provided that we have taken reasonable steps to ensure that such third parties would undertake to us to obtain Your consent for the disclosure of Your Personal Information to us in line with this Privacy Policy and Applicable Law.

       

      Information about third parties you provide to us

      • You may provide us with Personal Information relating to other third party individuals (such as Personal Information relating to your spouse, family members or friends).

Where such devices are installed and used in any Vehicles, we do not collect any Personal Information from any in-vehicle recordings by such devices, and any collection of Personal Information from such in-vehicle recordings is not being done on our behalf. The collection of Personal Information from such in-vehicle recordings is solely at the discretion of the Transportation Provider. We have no control over such collection of Personal Information by the Transportation Provider and any subsequent use or disclosure by the Transportation Provider of the Personal Information so collected.
