This may include your name, phone number, email, address, payment or banking information (including related payment verification information), login name and password, government identification numbers, birth date, photo and signature. This may also include the preferences and settings that you enable for you to access one or more accounts with the Company. This information may be collected by a vendor on Company’s behalf, including its dispatch technology provider (which may include Mobile Knowledge Systems, Inc.), who are required to comply with the rules of GDPR in the collection, handling and use of your information.
1.2. Driver insurance & background information: We may collect vehicle or insurance information of drivers, as well as background check information if you sign up to use Company services as a driver. This may include information such as your driver history (where permitted by law). This information may be collected by a vendor on the Company’s behalf.

1.4. User profiles and accounts: When you sign up to use the Services, you may be required to create a user profile. The current data fields which you are required to complete in order to access the Services include, minimally, your e-mail, password, name, mobile phone number, post code, and credit card number, expiration date, security code, or other digital payment accounts. If you choose to upload a photo when registering for our Services, the photo may be viewable by us and by the drivers who are picking you up so that they are able to verify your identity. You may remove or update the photo at any time by logging into your account.
2. Information Created When You Access And Use Our Services. This may include:
2.1. Usage information: We may collect information concerning your access and use of the Services ("Usage Information"), such as the browser that you are using, the URL that referred you to our Services, traffic data, logs and other communication data, the time of day, areas within our Services that you visit, and the resources that you access and use on or through the Services. In some cases, we collect this information through cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies that create and maintain unique identifiers.
2.2. Tracking information: Depending on the Services you use, tracking information may be collected as you navigate through our Services, including, but not limited to, your precise or approximate location information as determined through data such as GPS, IP address or WiFi. If you are traveling in a vehicle requested via our Services, location information will be collected from the driver during your trip, even if you have not enabled your own mobile device or Mobile Applicable to collect your location information. If you are traveling in a vehicle requested via our Services, the driver's mobile phone or other in-vehicle equipment may send your GPS coordinates, during the ride, to our servers. We may also have features that allow you to share this information with other people (such as your family, friends or colleagues) if you choose.
2.3. Device information: We may collect information about the devices you use to access the Services, including the hardware models, operating systems and versions, software, file names and versions, preferred languages, advertising identifiers, serial numbers, device motion information, mobile network information, device IP address or other unique identifier ("Device Identifier").
2.4. Transaction information: We collect transaction details related to your use of the Services, including the type of services you requested or provided, your order details, date and time the service was provided, amount charged, distance traveled, and payment method. Additionally, if someone uses a promotion code we provide or may provide to you in future, we may associate your name with that promotion.
2.5. Communications data: Certain Services enable users to communicate with each other and/or the Company. To provide this service, Company may receives some information regarding the calls or texts, (including the date, time and content of the call or text). Company may also use this information for customer support services (including to resolve disputes between users, payment disputes, or chargebacks), for safety and security purposes, to improve our products and services, and for analytics. This information may be collected by a vendor on CMT’s behalf.
4. Information You Provide About A Third Party. If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our Services or an employment or service position, we may ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him/her to visit the Services. We store this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program, and do not use this information for any other marketing purpose unless we obtain consent from that person or we explicitly say otherwise. Please be aware that when you use any send-to-a-friend functionality through our Services, your e-mail address and name may be included in the communication sent to your friend.
6. Information Permissible for Collection Through Specific Technologies. Several technologies are or may be used for automatic information collection, including:
6.2. Web Beacons. The web beacons are tiny graphic images or other web programming code with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. Web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags, single-pixel gifs or 1x1 GIFs) may be included in our web and mobile pages and messages. In contrast to cookies, which are stored in a user's Device hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on Web pages. The purpose of web beacons or similar technologies is to help us better manage content on our Services by informing us what content is effective, and by helping us to count users of the Services, monitor how users navigate the Services, count how many e-mails that we send were actually opened, count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed, and for other related app statistics (for example, verifying system and server integrity and recording the popularity of certain app content). We do not tie the information gathered by web beacons to your Personal Information.
6.3. Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code the purpose of which is to collect information about your interactions with the Services, such as the links you click on. This programming code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our web server or a third party service provider, and is deactivated or deleted when you are no longer connected with the Services.

If there is a Third Party for which drivers work (that are providing the transportation service), such as for example a taxi fleet, this Third Party is or may also able to access your Personal Information, including your geolocation data. We collect transportation information for various purposes - including to determine the charge or estimated charge for the transportation or other service you requested via our Services, to provide you with support, to send you promotions and offers, to enhance our Services, and for our internal business purposes. We use your Internet Protocol (IP) address to help diagnose problems with our computer server, and to administer our web site(s). Your IP address is used to help identify you, but contains no personal information about you.

(b) maintain and enhance our users’ safety and security (for example, by monitoring chargeback events) and prevent use of our services by users who have engaged in inappropriate or dangerous behavior (for example, by retaining information of banned users to prevent their use of CMT’s apps);
(c) provide customer support;
(d) inform law enforcement officials regarding criminal acts or threats to public safety;
(e) optimize or enhance existing products and/or services, or develop new products and/or services.

(f) enforce CMT’s terms and conditions.
(g) CMT’s collection and use of personal information to the extent necessary for its legitimate interests also includes collecting and using information for: (i) research and analytical purposes (for example, to analyze usage trends to improve the user experience and enhance the safety and security of our services), and (ii) direct marketing purposes. This includes, for example, analyzing data to identify trends and tailor marketing messages to user needs.
23.4. The processing is necessary for the legitimate interests of other persons or parties. CMT collects and uses personal information to the extent necessary for the interests of other persons or the general public. This includes sharing information in connection with legal or insurance claims, to protect the rights and safety of others. CMT may also process personal information when necessary in regards to a substantial public interest, on the basis of applicable laws.
23.5. The processing is necessary to fulfill CMT’s legal obligations. CMT is subject to legal requirements in the jurisdictions in which it operates that require us to collect, process, disclose and retain your personal data. For example, CMT is subject to laws and regulations in many cities and countries that require it to collect and retain information about your trips, to retain such information for extended periods of time, and to provide copies of such information to governmental or other authorities. CMT uses your information to comply with such laws to the extent they apply to your use of the CMT apps. CMT may also share information with law enforcement, or requests by third parties pursuant to legal processes. For more information about such sharing, please see CMT’s Guidelines for Law Enforcement Authorities in the United States, Guidelines for Law Enforcement Authorities Outside the United States, and Guidelines for Third Party Data Requests.
23.6. Consent. CMT may collect and use your information on the basis of your consent. You may revoke your consent at any time. If you revoke your consent, you will not be able to use any service or feature that requires collection or use of the information we collected or used on the basis of consent.

SECTION 10 - CHILDREN
28. The Company cares about the safety of children. Because our Services are not directed toward minors, no one under 18 is allowed to register for use of the Services. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone under the age of 18. If we discover that we have collected Personal Information from a person under 18, we will delete that information immediately.

SECTION 11 - SECURITY OF DATA
29. The credit card information you provide in your personal profile at sign-up is not stored by CMT UK, but is stored and used by our third party credit card processors in order for them to process payment that you owe Third Parties for transportation services received by you. The Personal Information and Usage Information we collect is securely stored within our databases, and we use standard, industry-wide, commercially reasonable security practices such as encryption, firewalls and SSL (Secure Socket Layers) for protecting your information - such as any portions of your credit card number which we retain (we do not ourselves retain your entire credit card information) and geolocation information. However, as effective as encryption technology is, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet or wireless communication, and any information you transmit to the Company you do at your own risk. We require that you not disclose your password to anyone.

Provide an explanation regarding the information CMT has collected about you and how it uses that information.

Please note that if you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional messages, such as receipts for your rides or information about your account.

We may occasionally update this policy. If we make significant changes, we will notify you of the changes through the CMT apps or through others means, such as email. To the extent permitted under applicable law, by using our services after such notice, you consent to our updates to this policy. We encourage you to periodically review this policy for the latest information on our privacy practices. We will also make prior versions of our privacy policies available for review.
