Privacy Policy

 

This PRIVACY AGREEMENT is made by and between you (“User”, “You” or “Your”) and rubiCorp Technologies Inc. LLC, a limited liability corporation of the State of Delaware (“rubiRides”, “We”, “Our,” or “Us”).

rubiRides is a membership-based service provider enabling members to arrange and schedule rides with a third-party driver specifically for children ages seven (7) and up, using Our mobile applications, websites, and other online products and services (“The Services”).

You are the parent or legal guardian of a minor child or minor children (“Rider”), who wishes to contract with rubiRides to provide transportation services for Rider according to the terms set forth below. 

We take your privacy seriously.

We respect your privacy and take measures to keep your data safe, to never sell your personal data and to be as transparent as possible.

This Privacy Agreement explains our practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information that rubiRides receives when User uses The Services. rubiRides collects information about User when User uses The Services and through other interactions and communications User has with Us. This Privacy Agreement applies to information collected and used by rubiRides on Our behalf. This Privacy Agreement does not apply to any third-party websites, services or applications, even if they are accessible through The Services. Any information that rubiRides collects is subject to this Privacy Agreement. 

rubiRides may modify and revise this Privacy Agreement from time to time. If rubiRides makes any material changes to this Privacy Agreement, rubiRides will notify User of those changes by posting them on Our mobile applications, websites, and other online products and services or by sending User an email or other notification, and Rubi will indicate when those changes will become effective. Also, please note that, unless rubiRides defines a term in this Privacy Agreement, all capitalized words used in this Privacy Agreement have the same meanings as in our User Agreement.

This Privacy Agreement applies to persons anywhere in the world who use The Services.

DATA COLLECTION RELATED TO CHILDREN

If You register a child as a Rider, We will request that You provide Us with certain information that can be used to identify such person, such as name, photo, age, phone number, and email address. In the event the Rider is a child under the age of 13, by providing such information about the child, You affirm that You are such child’s parent or legal guardian and have all requisite authority to provide Us with such information and to authorize Us to use such information. In order to provide You The Services, You also acknowledge that, as noted above, We will pass certain components of this information on to Our Drivers. You will have access to a rubiRides-provided phone number to allow communication between Users, Riders, and Drivers. However, the User’s actual phone number, and Rider’s actual phone number if applicable, will not be provided directly to the Driver. Additionally, the Driver will have access to User’s and Rider’s first name and last name, photo, and schedule. Driver may be able to communicate directly with Rider, including children under the age of 13, over the course of providing The Services, via voice call and/or text message (through a masked phone number), as well as through in-person communication. Other detailed data collection and its use by Us is appended below.

INFORMATION DIRECTLY PROVIDED BY USER

rubiRides collects information that User provides directly to Us over web, mobile app, email, phone call or text or in person through Drivers. This information can be collected during various interactions such as when User creates or modifies their account, requests on-demand services, contacts customer support, or otherwise communicates with Us directly or indirectly. This information may include: name, email, phone number, postal address, profile picture, payment method, service notes, and other information User chooses to provide about self, Rider, or User’s family, friends or social network (such as information about User’s connections, User’s kids’ school or activity centers/staff, neighbors and their families, etc.).

INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM USER’S USE OF OUR SERVICES

When User uses The Services, rubiRides  collects information about User in the ways listed below. This list is non-exclusive and rubiRides reserves the right to collect information through User’s use of The Services by means which may not be listed below. 

Location Information: When User uses The Services, rubiRides collects precise location data about the rides and services provided by Us. If User permits the rubiRides app to access location services through the permission system used by User’s mobile operating system (“Platform”), rubiRides may also collect the precise location of User’s device when the app is running in the foreground or background. rubiRides may also derive User’s approximate location from User’s IP address.

Contacts Information: If User permits the rubiRides app to access the address book on User’s device through the permission system used by User’s Platform, rubiRides may access and store names and contact information from User’s address book to facilitate social interactions through The Services and for other purposes described in this Privacy Agreement.

Transaction Information: rubiRides collects transaction details related to User’s use of The Services, including the type of service requested, date and time the service was provided, amount charged, distance traveled, and other related transaction details. Additionally, if someone uses User’s promo code, rubiRides may associate User’s name with that person.

Usage and Preference Information: rubiRides collects information about how User and site visitors interact with The Services, preferences expressed, and settings chosen. In some cases, rubiRides does this through the use of cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies that create and maintain unique identifiers. 

Device Information: rubiRides may collect information about User’s mobile device, including, for example, the hardware model, operating system and version, software and file names and versions, preferred language, unique device identifier, advertising identifiers, serial number, device motion information, and mobile network information.

Call and SMS Data: The Services facilitate communications between Users and Drivers. In connection with facilitating this service, rubiRides receives call data, including the date and time of the call or SMS message, the parties’ phone numbers, and the content of the SMS message.

Log Information: When User interacts with The Services, rubiRides collects server logs, which may include information like device IP address, access dates and times, app features or pages viewed, app crashes and other system activity, type of browser, and the third-party site or service User used before interacting with The Services.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PLATFORM PERMISSIONS

Most Platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without User’s consent. Platforms have varying permission systems for obtaining User’s consent. By means of example only, at the time of the drafting of this Privacy Agreement, the iOS Platform will alert User the first time the rubiRides app wants permission to access certain types of data and will let User consent or not consent to that request. Android devices will notify User of the permissions that the rubiRides app seeks before User’s first use the app, and User’s use of the app constitutes User’s consent. These methods of Platform notification may change from time to time, and this Privacy Agreement may or may not reflect Platform’s current notification methods. 

INFORMATION RUBIRIDES COLLECTS FROM OTHER SOURCES

rubiRides may also receive information from other sources and combine that with information rubiRides collects through The Services. For example:

If User chooses to link, create, or log in to User’s rubiRides account with a payment provider (e.g., Google Wallet) or social media service (e.g., Facebook), or if User engages with a separate app or website that uses our API (or whose API rubiRides uses), rubiRides may receive information about User or User’s connections from that site or app.

If User’s affiliation uses one of Our enterprise solutions, rubiRides may receive information about User from User’s affiliate (affiliate can be User’s employee, school, activity center, etc.).

When User requests a ride, Driver may provide Us with a User rating after providing services to User.

If User also interacts with The Services in another capacity, for instance by utilizing other apps rubiRides provides, rubiRides may combine or associate that information with information rubiRides has collected from User directly.

USE OF INFORMATION

rubiRides may use the information rubiRides collects about User in a variety of ways, which include but are not limited to:

Provide, maintain, and improve The Services, including, for example, match between User and Driver, create pool rides, facilitate payments, send receipts, provide products and services User requests (and send related information), develop new features, provide customer support to Users and Drivers, develop safety features, authenticate Users, and send product updates and administrative messages;

Perform internal operations, including, for example, to prevent fraud and abuse of The Services; to troubleshoot software bugs and operational problems; to conduct data analysis, testing, and research; and to monitor and analyze usage and activity trends;

Send or facilitate communications (i) between User and Driver, such as estimated times of arrival (ETAs), or (ii) between User and a contact of User at User’s direction in connection with User’s use of certain features, such as referrals, invites, split fare requests, or ETA sharing;

Send User communications rubiRides thinks will be of interest to User, including information about products, services, promotions, news, and events of rubiRides and other companies, where permissible and according to local applicable laws; and to process contest, sweepstake, or other promotion entries and fulfill any related awards;

Submit disclosures to governmental authorities as required by law; and

User’s use of such features enables the sharing of information with User’s friends or the public, depending on the settings User establishes with the social sharing service. Please refer to the privacy policies of those social sharing services for more information about how they handle the data User provides to or shares through them.

ANALYTICS AND ADVERTISING SERVICES PROVIDED BY OTHERS

rubiRides  may allow others to provide audience measurement and analytics services for Us, to serve advertisements on Our behalf across the Internet, and to track and report on the performance of those advertisements. These entities may use cookies, web beacons, SDKs, and other technologies to identify User’s device when User visits our site and uses The Services, as well as when User visits other online sites and services. 

“Cookies” are small text files that are placed on Your hard drive by a Web server when You access The Services. We may use both session Cookies and persistent Cookies to identify that You have logged into The Services and to tell us how and when You interact with The Services. We may also use Cookies to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on The Services and to customize and improve The Services. Unlike persistent Cookies, session Cookies are deleted when You log off from The Services and close Your browser. Although most browsers automatically accept Cookies, You can change Your browser options to stop automatically accepting Cookies or to prompt You before accepting Cookies. Please note, however, that if You do not accept Cookies, You may not be able to access all portions or features of The Services. Some third-party services providers that We engage (including third-party advertisers) may also place their own Cookies on Your hard drive. Note that this Privacy Agreement covers only Our use of Cookies and does not include use of Cookies by such third parties.

“Web Beacons” (also known as clear gifs) are tiny graphics with unique identifiers that may be included in The Services for several purposes, including to deliver or communicate with Cookies, to track and measure the performance of The Services, to monitor how many visitors access The Services, and to monitor the effectiveness of Our advertising. Unlike Cookies, which are stored on User’s hard drive, Web Beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages or emails.

USER’S CHOICES

ACCOUNT INFORMATION

User may correct User’s account information at any time by logging into User’s online or in-app account. If User wish to cancel User’s account, please email us at support@rubiRides.com. Please note that in some cases rubiRides may retain certain information about User as required by law, or for legitimate business purposes to the extent permitted by law. For instance, if User has a standing credit or debt on User’s account, or if Rubi believes User has committed fraud or violated our terms, rubiRides may seek to resolve the issue before deleting User’s information.

ACCESS RIGHTS

rubiRides will comply with individual’s requests regarding access, correction, and/or deletion of the personal data it stores in accordance with applicable law.

LOCATION INFORMATION

rubiRides requests permission for our app’s collection of precise location from User’s (or Rider’s) device per the permission system used by User’s (or Rider’s) mobile operating system. If User initially permits the collection of this information, User can later disable it by changing the location settings on the applicable mobile device. However, this will limit User’s ability to use certain features of The Services. Additionally, disabling Our app’s collection of precise location from a device will not limit Our ability to collect User’s trip location information from Driver's device nor Our ability to derive approximate location from User’s IP address.

CONTACT INFORMATION

rubiRides may also seek permission for Our app’s collection and syncing of contact information from User’s device per the permission system used by User’s mobile operating system. If User initially permits the collection of this information, iOS customers can later disable it by changing the contacts settings on User’s mobile device. The Android platform does not provide such a setting at the time of the writing of this Privacy Agreement.

PROMOTIONAL COMMUNICATIONS

User may opt out of receiving promotional messages from Us by following the instructions in those messages. If User opts out, rubiRides may still send User non-promotional communications, such as those about User’s account, about The Services User has requested, or Our ongoing business relations.

DRIVERS

rubiRides collects information about Drivers when You use The Services and through other interactions and communications You have with Us. 

COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

rubiRides may collect personal data from You during the course of Your application for, and use of, The Services, including location data, which information may be stored, processed, and/or accessed by rubiRides, as well as its service providers, for business purposes, including for marketing, lead generation, service development and improvement, analytics, industry and market research, and such other purposes consistent with rubiRidesi’s and its affiliates’ legitimate business needs. By submitting information to rubiRides during the application process and/or by using The Services, You consent to such collection and use of personal data.

DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES

LOCATION-BASED SERVICES CONSENT

You hereby expressly consent to rubiRides’s use of location-based services and expressly waive and release Rubi from any and all liability, claims, causes of action or damages arising from Your use of The Services, or in any way relating to the use of the precise location and other location-based services.
