Privacy

USER PRIVACY STATEMENT

Effective Date: 1 May 2016

Takeme Limited (Takeme Limited is referred as “Takeme” or “we”) collects information about you when you use our mobile applications (apps), websites, and other online products and services (collectively, the “Services”) and through other interactions and communications you have with us. Whether you reside in or out of New Zealand the Services are provided by Takeme, and this Privacy Statement applies to information collected and used by Takeme.

SCOPE AND APPLICATION

This Privacy Statement (“Statement”) applies to all persons who use our Services to request transportation, delivery, or other on-demand services (“Users”). This Statement also applies to information we collect from or about License Holders, drivers, partner transportation companies, or any other persons who use the Takeme platform under license (collectively “Drivers”). If you interact with the Services as both a User and a Driver, the respective privacy statements apply to your different interactions.

COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US

We collect information you provide directly to us, such as when you create or modify your account, request on-demand services, contact customer support, provide feedback and/or ratings or otherwise communicate with us. This information may include: name, email, phone number, postal address, profile picture, payment method, items requested (for delivery services), delivery notes, and other information you choose to provide.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT THROUGH YOUR USE OF OUR SERVICES

When you use our Services, we collect information about you in the following general categories:

  • Location Information: When you use the Services for transportation or delivery, we collect precise location data about the trip from the Takeme app used by the Driver. If you permit the Takeme app to access location services through the permission system used by your mobile operating system (“platform”), we may also collect the precise location of your device when the app is running in the foreground or background. We may also derive your approximate location from your IP address.
  • Contacts Information: If you permit the Takeme app to access the address book on your device through the permission system used by your mobile platform, we may access and store names and contact information from your address book to facilitate social interactions through our Services and for other purposes described in this Statement or at the time of consent or collection.
  • Transaction Information: We collect transaction details related to your use of our Services, including the type of service requested, date and time the service was provided, amount charged, distance travelled, and other related transaction details. Additionally, if someone uses your promo code, we may associate your name with that person.
  • Usage and Preference Information: We collect information about how you and site visitors interact with our Services, preferences expressed, and settings chosen. In some cases we do this through the use of cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies that create and maintain unique identifiers.
  • Device Information: We may collect information about your 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: Our Services facilitate communications between Users and Drivers. In connection with facilitating this service, we receive 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 you interact with the Services, we collect 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 you were using before interacting with our Services.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PLATFORM PERMISSIONS

Most mobile platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without your consent. And these platforms have different permission systems for obtaining your consent. The iOS platform will alert you the first time the Takeme app wants permission to access certain types of data and will let you consent (or not consent) to that request. Android devices will notify you of the permissions that the Takeme app seeks before you first use the app, and your use of the app constitutes your consent. Sometimes these permissions require more explanation than the platforms themselves provide, and the permissions we request will change over time, so we’ve created these pages to serve as authoritative and up-to-date resources for our users.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM OTHER SOURCES

We may also receive information from other sources and combine that with the information we collect through our Services and you agree to allow us to have access to this information. For example:

  • If you choose to link, create, or log in to your Takeme account with a payment provider (e.g., Google Wallet) or social media service (e.g., Facebook), or if you engage with a separate app or website that uses our Application Program Interface (API) (or whose API we use), we may receive information about you or your connections from that site or app.
  • If your employer uses one of our enterprise solutions, such as Takeme for Business, we may receive information about you from your employer.
  • When you request on demand services, our Drivers may provide us with a Takeme rating after providing services to you.
  • If you also interact with our Services in another capacity, for instance as a Driver or user of other apps we provide, we may combine or associate that information with information we have collected from you in your capacity as a User or rider.

USE OF INFORMATION

We may use the information we collect about you to:

  • Provide, maintain, and improve our Services, including, for example, to facilitate payments, send receipts, provide products and services you request (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 our Services; to troubleshoot software bugs and operational problems; to conduct data analysis, testing, and research; and to monitor and analyse usage and activity trends;
  • Send or facilitate communications
    • (i) between you and a Driver, such as estimated times of arrival (ETAs), or
    • (ii) between you and a contact of yours at your direction in connection with your use of certain features, such as referrals, invites, split fare requests, or ETA sharing;
  • Send you communications we think will be of interest to you, including information about products, services, promotions, news, and events of Takeme and other companies, where permissible and according to local applicable laws; and to process contest, sweepstake, or other promotion entries and fulfil any related awards;
  • Personalize and improve the Services, including to provide or recommend features, content, social connections, referrals, and advertisements.

We may transfer the information described in this Statement to, and process and store it in, New Zealand and other countries, some of which may have less protective data protection laws than the region in which you reside. Where this is the case, we will take appropriate measures to protect your personal information in accordance with this Statement.

We keep the personal information we store safe by storing it in encrypted files and only allowing specified staff to access it.

SHARING OF INFORMATION

We may share the information we collect about you as described in this Statement or as described at the time of collection or sharing, including as follows:

THROUGH OUR SERVICES

We may share your information:

  • With Drivers to enable them to provide the Services you request. For example, we share your name, photo (if you provide one), average User rating given by Drivers, and pickup and/or drop-off locations with Drivers;
  • With third parties to provide you a service you requested through a partnership or promotional offering made by a third party or us;
  • With the general public if you submit content in a public forum, such as blog comments, social media posts, our website, or other features of our Services that are viewable by the general public;
  • With third parties with whom you choose to let us share information, for example other apps or websites that integrate with our API or Services, or those with an API or Service with which we integrate; and
  • With your employer (or similar entity) and any necessary third parties engaged by us or your employer (e.g., an expense management service provider), if you participate in any of our enterprise solutions such as Takeme for Business.

OTHER IMPORTANT SHARING

  • With law enforcement officials, government authorities, or other third parties if we believe your actions are inconsistent with our User agreements, Terms of Service, or policies, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Takeme or others;
  • In connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, consolidation or restructuring, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by or into another company;
  • If we otherwise notify you and you consent to the sharing; and
  • In an aggregated and/or anonymized form which cannot reasonably be used to identify you.

SOCIAL SHARING FEATURES

The Services may integrate with social sharing features and other related tools which let you share actions you take on our Services with other apps, sites, or media, and vice versa. Your use of such features enables the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish 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 you provide to or share through them.

ANALYTICS AND ADVERTISING SERVICES PROVIDED BY OTHERS

These entities may use cookies, web beacons, SDKs, and other technologies to identify your device when you visit our site and use our Services, as well as when you visit other online sites and services.

 YOUR CHOICES

ACCOUNT INFORMATION

You may correct your account information at any time by logging into your online or in-app account by emailing [email protected]. If you wish to cancel your account, please email us at [email protected]. Please note that in some cases we may retain certain information about you as required by law, or for legitimate business purposes to the extent permitted by law. For instance, if you have a standing credit or debt on your account, or if we believe you have committed fraud or violated our Terms, we may seek to resolve the issue before deleting your information.

We keep user’s information for six years, at which point we securely destroy it by erasing all digital data.

ACCESS RIGHTS

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

Users can contact us to view or correct information we hold about them by emailing [email protected].

LOCATION INFORMATION

We request permission for our app’s collection of precise location from your device per the permission system used by your mobile operating system. If you initially permit the collection of this information, you can later disable it by changing the location settings on your mobile device.
