1. General Background

What This Means: The Service is a mobile application that enables you, as a driver, to connect with prospective passengers and your Fleet Owner, and as such it requires the collection and sharing of your Personal Data.

The Service is designed to enable the interaction and communication between you and the dispatcher of your Fleet Owner for the purpose of facilitating rides to prospective passengers who wish to book a ride. Your use of the Service will result in sharing your location and other Personal Data with such passengers, your Fleet Owner (and its representatives such as dispatchers) and other third parties as set forth in this Privacy Notice. While we take steps to safeguard your information, we have no control over how other users and the public at large may use the information you share while using the Service. Collecting your information and sharing it with others is inherent in the Service. If your Fleet Owner has already created an account for you, and you would like to terminate it, please contact your Fleet Owner or the Company at mobility.support@here.com.

Please note that certain features of the Service may depend on the manner in which you access the Service. Different mobile device models and Service software versions may include different features.

2. Information We Collect and How We Use the Information

What This Means. We collect information about your use of the Service and your mobile device as well as Personal Data your Fleet Owner, and you provide while using and registering for the Service. We use that information as described in this Privacy Notice.

2.1 Legal Basis for Processing.

2.1.1. To provide the Service, We collect and process your Personal Data in order to provide you with the Service in accordance with our contract with you comprised of the Drive App Terms. For example, we collect your location information in order to track you while you drive so that your Fleet Owner will know where you are and will be able to assign rides to you. In order for us to provide you with the Service, we have to process your Registration Information, Device and Technical Information, Location Data and Travel Routes and Support Information (each as further described below).

(a) Registration Information

We collect your name and phone number directly from your Fleet Owner prior to your access and usage of the Service. In addition, your Fleet Owner provides us with your specific driver and vehicle fleet identification numbers. We may also collect your email and photo if your Fleet Owner chooses to provide it to us. This Personal Data is required to create and register your account with us so that you will be able to use the Service. If you wish to edit any information that is part of your account, please contact your Fleet Owner.

(b) Device and Technical Information

In addition to Personal Data that we receive from you or your Fleet Owner, once you download and install the Service, and before you sign up for the Service, we will collect your data, including certain device information that includes your device ID or any other unique identifier, advertiser ID (if applicable), publisher ID (if applicable), the device on which you installed the Service, device type and model, device manufacturer, operator, Service version, operating system and version, browser type and version, city, language, postal code, IP address, local time, battery level, push notification settings, screen resolution, memory, battery level, time zone, and if your GPS and push notifications is enabled/disabled in your Service.

(c) Location Data and Travel Routes

The purpose of the Service is to facilitate the provision of your transportation services to passengers and provide you with navigation services. To do so, we need to know where you are. The Service collects and uses information about your actual geographic location (“Location Data”). Location Data reveals where you currently are or where you have been. Location Data is based on available positioning methods, such as Assisted GPS. In many mobile device models, the user interface of the Service identifies the use of positioning with an arrow icon.

In addition, the Service will track your geolocation in order to allow your Fleet Owner and us to match you with prospective passengers in your vicinity and to allow us to derive information about traffic and road conditions based on your driving routes.

When you grant us permission to access your Location Data, we will use it for purposes of:

- enabling navigation and providing driving routes and times of travel from one destination to   another;

- receiving relevant rides from dispatchers (e.g., your Fleet Owner and/or its representatives); and

- letting passengers who booked a ride with you, know where you are in real-time.

Your current location will be presented to you on the map, enabling you to extract your current location to engage in navigation from or back to that location. We share your Location Data with your Fleet Owner (and/or its representatives) so that they will know where you are in real-time. 

When you enabled your Location Data, and the Service is active, we access and collect your Location Data. You can configure the Service (via your mobile device’s settings) to collect this information always or only while the Service is open and active. You have the ability to disable the location feature of the Service all together via your mobile device’s settings at all times. However, should you do so, the Service will not function or operate as intended.

The Service includes the following statuses:

(1) A “Free” status. You should use this option when you are on duty and are available to provide transportation services to passengers. When you enable the “Free” status, your Fleet Owner and we will be able to determine your current location; and 

(2) An “Off-Duty” status. You should use this option when you are off duty and are not available to provide transportation services to passengers. When you enable the “Off-Duty” status, your Fleet Owner and we will not be able to determine your current location. Once you update your status to any other status, your Fleet Owner and we will be able to determine your current location.

In addition, your Fleet Owner (and/or its representatives) will have your status as “On a Ride” status, when you accept a ride dispatched to you or start a street hailing ride. When you are on this status, your Fleet Owner and we will be able to determine your current location. 

If you fully disable the Service or disable the location features of the Service, then neither we nor your Fleet Owner will know your current location.

(d) Support Information

When you interact with us via support or feedback, we will also collect certain Personal Data generated by your use of the Service or Personal Data that you choose to share with us to better respond to your inquiries. Such information may include, rides you took, and your last known location. We may, in accordance with applicable law, record your communication with our support team or with other similar contact channels.

(e) Additional Information

Once you login to the Service, we may request, and you may provide additional information, for example, if you pick up a passenger that hailed you on the street, then you will be asked to provide us with certain information such as the destination of the ride. In addition, at the end of the ride, you will be asked to provide the final fee for the ride.

2.1.2. In our legitimate interests. In some circumstances, it may be necessary for us to process your Personal Data for the legitimate interests of our ongoing business operations or the operation of the Service.
