We may, from time to time, supplement the information we collect about you through our website or mobile application or services with outside records from third parties.

We may collect and use technical data and related information, including but not limited to, technical information about your device, system and application software, and peripherals, that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support and other services to you (if any) related to such mobile applications.

USE OF INFORMATION COLLECTED

We use your information to closely monitor which features of the services are used most, to allow you to view your trip history, rate trips, and to determine which features we need to focus on improving, including usage patterns and geographic locations to determine where we should offer or focus services, features and/or resources.
- We use the information collected from our mobile application so that we are able to serve you the correct app version depending on your device type, for troubleshooting and in some cases, marketing purposes.
- We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our services are temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email.
- We provide some of your information (such as your name, pick up address, contact number) to the driver or other passengers who give lift so that the driver may contact and find you.
- We use that geo-location information for various purposes, including for you to be able to view the drivers/give lift users in your area that are close to your location, for you to set your pick up location, for the drivers/give lift users to identify the pick-up location, to send you promotions and offers.
- We may use the information collected from you for targeted advertising. This involves using information collected on an individual’s web or mobile browsing behaviour such as the pages they have visited or the searches they have made. This information is then used to select which advertisements should be displayed to a particular individual on websites other than our web site(s).
