  1. Information We Collect About You and How We Collect It

We collect several types of information from and about users of the Services, including:

  • Your personal information, such as name, e-mail address, telephone number, geographic location, social media information, background information, or any other information collected through the Services by which you may be personally identified; and
  • Information about your Internet connection, the devices and equipment you use to access our Services, and related usage details.

We collect this information:

  • Directly from you when you provide it to us, including via the Services, kiosks, phone, email, or chat.
  • Automatically as you use and navigate through the Services. Information collected automatically may include usage details, your time of visit, pages visited, time spent on each page, IP addresses, location, type of operating system used, and other information collected through cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies.

Information You Give to Us. The information we collect on or through our Services may include:

  • Information that you provide on our website, kiosks and other Services. This includes information provided when you sign up for an account, like your name, e-mail address, telephone number, and physical address.
  • Photos and videos of you captured by drive.ai’s in-vehicle cameras and external cameras to record what is happening inside and outside of the vehicle, which may include the recording of you and your actions.
  • Records and copies of your correspondence (including email addresses) if you contact us, such as when you report a problem with our Services.
  • Your responses to questions that we might ask you to complete.
  • Your search queries on the Services.

Information We Collect About You. As with many other services, as you navigate through and interact with our Services, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns, including:

  • Details of your use of the Services, including logs, language, date and time of access, frequency, and other communication data and the Services resources that you access or use.
  • Geolocation data including your specific location and associated location, pickup, dropoff, and traffic data, using GPS, WiFi, and other such technology.
  • Information about your devices, computers and Internet connections that you use to access the Services, including your IP address, operating system, host domain, and browser type.
  • Details of referring websites (URL). We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking).

Cookies and other Tracking Technologies. As with many other services, our Services may use “cookies” or other technologies to help us deliver content specific to your interests, to process your reservations or requests, and/or to analyze your use patterns. We may collect the following types of information about your use: the domain from which you access the Internet; IP address; operating system and information about the device or browser used when using the Services; date and time of your visit; content you accessed; and referring website (such as google.com or bing.com) and website referral source (email notice or social media site) that connected you to the Services. Our Services use two types of cookies: single-session (temporary) and multi-session (persistent). Temporary cookies last only as long as your web browser is open, and are used for technical purposes such as enabling better navigation through our Services. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears. Persistent cookies are stored on your computer for longer periods and are used for purposes including tracking the number of unique visitors to the Services and information such as the number of views a page gets, how much time a user spends on a page, and other pertinent web statistics. Cookies, by themselves, will not be used by drive.ai to disclose your individual identity. This information identifies your browser, but not you, to our servers when you use the Services. We may also collect data by using “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means, including those from third-party service providers like Google Analytics and other cloud-based tools, (collectively, “pixel tags”) that allow us to know when you use or visit our Service. Through pixel tags, we obtain non-personal information or aggregate information that can be used to enhance your online experience and understand traffic patterns. You can learn more about Google Analytics and your options for opting out of interest-based Google ads at https://adssettings.google.com.

Information We Receive From Other Sources. This section addresses information we receive about you if you use any of the other websites or other services. We sometimes work with third parties and who provide information about you. We obtain information from such third parties with whom we work to provide you with Services (including, for example, sub-contractors, analytics providers, and search information providers).

In addition, we may use third-party providers to serve or track interactions on other websites. You may link to or access our Services using other third-party websites. Use of such third-party websites is subject to the terms of service and privacy policies of those third parties. drive.ai does not control the use of this technology or the resulting information and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.

  1. Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information

We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with control over your information:

  • Accessing and Managing Your Personal Data. You may access and modify your personal data through the Services. To delete, download or restrict use of your personal information, or for any additional assistance or inquiry regarding such information, please contact privacy@drive.ai. To help protect your privacy and maintain security, we may take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to the personal information. To the extent permitted by applicable law, a charge may apply before drive.ai provides you with a copy of any personal information that it maintains about you.
  • Controlling Your Settings. You can manage some data collection settings through the menu on the Services. You can limit your browser or mobile device from providing certain information by adjusting the settings in the browser, operating system, or device. Please consult the documentation for the applicable browser, operating system, or device for the controls available to you. You can also stop receiving promotional emails from us by following the unsubscribe instructions in such emails. Note that unsubscribe is not available for certain emails, such as those concerning your relationship or an active transaction with drive.ai and those necessary to provide the Services.
  • Tracking Technologies and Advertising. You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of our Services may then be inaccessible or may not function properly. You can learn more about targeted ads and your choices to prevent third parties from delivering targeted ads to your browser or device by visiting http://optout.networkadvertising.org/ and http://optout.aboutads.info/. You should be aware that even if you opt out of targeted ads, you may still see ads within the Services, although the ads may not be tailored to your interests. 
  • Do Not Track. We do not currently respond to “do not track” signals as we do not track our users across third-party websites. In some cases, you may be able to disable tracking mechanisms, but doing so may disable certain features of the Services. To disable tracking, please consult the documentation for your browser, operating system or device. For some devices, it may not be possible to disable tracking mechanisms.
  1. Data Security

We have implemented technological and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure, including by password protecting applicable systems and transmitting data over secure channels. drive.ai also complies with applicable data protection laws, including applicable data breach notification laws, to protect your information. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or guarantee that information within the Services will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. Communications sent to or from the Services may not be secure. You should use caution whenever submitting information online and take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of the Services, you are responsible for keeping the password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Services.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Services; any transmission is at your own risk.

Personal information collected by drive.ai may be stored and processed in your region, in the United States, and in any other country where we or our service providers operate facilities. We will retain your data as long as necessary for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy and for a commercially reasonable time thereafter for backup, archival, fraud prevention or detection or audit purposes, or as otherwise required by law.
