PERSONAL DATA WE PROCESS

We may ask you to provide us with certain Protected Information. We may collect this information through various means and in various places through the Services, including account registration forms, contact us forms, or when you otherwise interact with us. When you sign up to use the Services, you create a user profile. We shall ask you to provide only such Protected Information which is for lawful purpose connected with our Services and necessary to be collected by us for such purpose.

PURPOSE OF THE PROCESS

We collect and process personal data for the purpose of connecting passengers with drivers to help them move around cities more efficiently. We display geolocation data and the phone number of passengers to drivers to enable efficient pick-up. Geolocation data is collected only when the Roteec app is activated. The collection of geolocation data stops after closing the Roteec app. In some countries drivers cannot see passengers’ phone numbers; the driver sees an altogether different number which temporarily diverts to the rider’s phone number enabling the driver and rider to communicate.

    • We may use geolocation data to resolve quality issues related to transportation services.
    • We use contact details to notify passengers of updates to the Roteec app.
    • We collect data of the routes taken by drivers and passengers to analyse the geographic coverage in order to provide recommendations to the drivers about most efficient routes.
    • Your name, phone number and e-mail will be used to communicate with you.
    • We obtain payment details to process passengers’ payment on behalf of drivers for transportation services.
    • Customer support data is collected on a case-by-case basis and stored for the purpose of resolving disputes and service quality issues.
