Effective Date: August 9, 2019
The Information We Collect and/or Receive
Certain features and functionalities of the App are based on your location. In order to provide these features and functionalities while you are using a mobile device, we may, with your consent, automatically collect geolocational information from your mobile device or wireless carrier and/or certain third-party service providers. Such information is collectively called the “Geolocational Information.” Collection of Geolocational Information occurs only when the App is running on your mobile device. The App, like many mobile applications, uses software development kits (“SDKs”), including those from third-parties, to track analytics (e.g., analyzing App usage and user event data) in order to optimize and personalize the App experience. Geolocation services are either provided by the operating system’s location services or an SDK, to enable certain features, such as finding scooters for charging or drop off locations closest to your device or for additional analytics information.
You may decline to allow us to collect such Geolocational Information through the applicable settings on your mobile device, however, if you do so, you may not be able to access certain features or functionalities of the App.
In addition to the Contact Information, Billing Information and Geolocational Information, we may collect additional information (collectively, “Other Information”). Such Other Information may include:
From Your Activity. In order to provide you certain features and functionalities of the Services and the App, and in an ongoing effort to improve our Services and our App, we automatically collect certain information when you use the Services and the App. Such information may include, without limitation:
IP addresses, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, date and time, amount of time spent on the App, what sections of the App you visit, etc.;
information about a mobile device, including universally unique ID (“UUID”), platform type and version (e.g., iOS or Android), carrier and country location, hardware and processor information, and network type; and activity and usage information occurring via the Services.
From Cookies. We, and/or third-party service providers, collect information using “cookie” technology. Cookies are small packets of data that a website stores on your computer’s or mobile device’s hard drive so that your device will “remember” information about your visit to our App. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to help us collect information and to enhance your experience using the App. If you do not want us to place a cookie on your hard drive, you may be able to turn that feature off on your computer or mobile device. Please consult your Internet browser’s documentation for information on how to do this and how to delete persistent cookies. However, if you decide not to accept cookies from us, the App may not function properly.
