III. Data collections and uses
A. The data we collect
MexRide collects:
  • Data provided by users to MexRide, such as during account creation
  • Data created during use of our services, such as location, app usage, and device data
  • Data from other sources, such as MexRide partners and third parties that use MexRide APIs
The following data is collected by or on behalf of MexRide:
1- Data provided by users. This includes:
  • User profile: We collect data when users create or update their MexRide accounts. This may include their name, email, phone number, login name and password, address, profile picture, payment or banking information (including related payment verification information), driver’s license and other government identification documents (which may indicate document numbers as well as birth date, gender, and photo). This also includes vehicle or insurance information of drivers and delivery persons, emergency contact information, user settings, and evidence of health or fitness to provide services using MexRide apps. 
    This also includes gender and/or occupation (when required for certain MexRide services or programs, such as MexRide Cash or Women Rider Preferred).
    We may use the photos submitted by users to verify their identities, such as through facial recognition technologies. For more information, please see the section titled “How we use personal data.”
  • Background check and identity verification: We collect background check and identity verification information for drivers and delivery persons. This may include information such as driver history or criminal record (where permitted by law), and right to work. This information may be collected by an authorized vendor on MexRide’s behalf. 
  • Demographic data: We may collect demographic data about users, including through user surveys. In some countries, we may also receive demographic data about users from third parties.
  • User content: We collect the information users submit when they contact MexRide customer support, provide ratings or compliments for other users or restaurant partners, or otherwise contact MexRide. This may include feedback, photographs or other recordings collected by users.
2- Data created during use of our services. This includes: 
  • Location data (driver and delivery person): MexRide collects this data when the MexRide app is running in the foreground (app open and on-screen) or background (app open but not on-screen) of their mobile device.
  • Location data (riders and delivery recipients). We collect precise or approximate location data from riders’ and delivery recipients’ mobile devices if they enable us to do so. MexRide collects this data from the time a ride or delivery is requested until it is finished, and any time the app is running in the foreground of their mobile device. We use this data to enhance your use of our apps, including to improve pick-up locations, enable safety features, and prevent and detect fraud. 
    MexRide collects driver location data, and links location data collected during a trip with their rider’s account, even if the rider has not enabled us to collect location data from their device. This enables us to offer services to the rider like receipt generation and customer support. 
  • Transaction information: We collect transaction information related to the use of our services, including the type of services requested or provided, order details, delivery information, date and time the service was provided, amount charged, distance travelled, and payment method. Additionally, if someone uses your promotion code, we may associate your name with that person.
  • Usage data: We collect data about how users interact with our services. This includes data such as access dates and times, app features or pages viewed, app crashes and other system activity, type of browser, and third-party sites or services used before interacting with our services. In some cases, we collect this data through cookies, pixels, tags, and similar tracking technologies that create and maintain unique identifiers. 
  • Device data: We may collect data about the devices used to access our services, including the hardware models, device IP address, operating systems and versions, software, preferred languages, unique device identifiers, advertising identifiers, serial numbers, device motion data, and mobile network data.
  • Communications data: We enable users to communicate with each other and MexRide through MexRide’s mobile apps and websites. For example, we enable drivers and riders, and restaurants or delivery persons and delivery recipients, to call, text, or send other files to each other (generally without disclosing their telephone numbers to each other). To provide this service, MexRide receives some data regarding the calls, texts, or other communications, including the date and time of the communications and the content of the communications. MexRide may also use this data for customer support services (including to resolve disputes between users), for safety and security purposes, to improve our products and services, and for analytics.
  • Rental devices data: We collect data generated by rental devices, such as bicycles, scooters, or other light electric vehicles or devices, when they’re in use. This includes the date and time of use, and the location, route, and distance travelled. To the extent permitted by law, the location data collected from the rental device during the trip will be linked to the renter’s account, even if they have not enabled MexRide to collect location data from their mobile device.
  • Audio recordings: In certain jurisdictions, and where permitted by law, users can record the audio of their trips through an in-app feature. Recordings are encrypted and stored on users’ devices, and are only shared with MexRide if submitted to customer support by the users in connection with safety incidents.
3- Data from other sources. This includes:
  • User feedback, such as ratings, feedback, or compliments.
  • Users participating in our referral programs. For example, when a user refers another person, we receive the referred person’s personal data from that user.

  • Users or others providing information in connection with claims or disputes.
  • MexRide business partners through which users create or access their MexRide account, such as payment providers, social media services, or apps or websites that use MexRide’s APIs or whose APIs MexRide uses. 
  • MexRide business partners in connection with the MexRide Visa Card to the extent disclosed in the terms and conditions for the card.
  • Vendors who help us verify users’ identity, background information, and eligibility to work, for regulatory, safety, and security purposes. 
  • Insurance, vehicle, or financial services providers for drivers and/or delivery persons.
  • Partner transportation companies (for drivers or delivery persons who use our services through an account associated with such a company).
  • Publicly available sources.

B. How we use personal data
MexRide collects and uses data to enable reliable and convenient transportation, delivery, and other products and services. We also use the data we collect:
  • To enhance the safety and security of our users and services
  • For customer support 
  • For research and development 
  • To enable communications between users 
  • To send marketing and non-marketing communications to users
  • In connection with legal proceedings
MexRide does not sell or share user personal data with third parties for their direct marketing, except with users’ consent.
MexRide uses the data it collects for purposes including: 
1- Providing services and features. MexRide uses the data we collect to provide, personalize, maintain, and improve our products and services.

This includes using the data to:
  • Create and update users’ accounts.
  • Verify drivers’ and delivery persons’ identity, background history, and eligibility to work.
  • Enable transportation, deliveries, and other services.
  • Offer, process, or facilitate payments for our services.
  • Offer, obtain, provide, or facilitate insurance, vehicle, invoicing, or financing solutions in connection with our services.
  • Track and share the progress of rides or deliveries. 
  • Enable features that allow users to share information with other people, such as when riders submit a compliment about a driver, when delivery recipients provide feedback for a restaurant or delivery person, refer a friend to MexRide, split fares, or share ETA and location with their contacts.
  • Enable features to personalize users’ MexRide accounts, such as creating bookmarks for favourite places, and to enable quick access to previous destinations. 
  • Enable Accessibility features that make it easier for users with disabilities to use our services, such as those that enable deaf or hard-of-hearing drivers to alert their riders of their disabilities, allow only text messages from riders, and enable receipt of flashing trip request notifications instead of sound notifications on their mobile device.
  • Perform internal operations necessary to provide our services, including to troubleshoot software bugs and operational problems; to conduct data analysis, testing, and research; and to monitor and analyze usage and activity trends.
2- Safety and security. We use personal data to help maintain the safety, security, and integrity of our services and users. This includes:
  • Screening riders, drivers, and delivery persons before enabling their use of our services and at subsequent intervals, including through reviews of background checks, where permitted by law, to help prevent use of our services by unsafe drivers and/or riders.
  • Using data from drivers’ or delivery persons’ devices to help identify unsafe driving behavior such as speeding or harsh braking and acceleration, and to inform them of safer driving practices. We also use data from delivery persons’ devices to verify the type of vehicles they used to provide deliveries.
  • In certain regions, using information derived from driver’s license photos, and other photos submitted to MexRide, for safety and security purposes. This includes MexRide’s Real-Time ID Check feature, which prompts drivers and delivery persons to share a selfie before going online to help ensure that the driver or delivery persons using the app matches the MexRide account we have on file. This also includes comparing photographs that we have on file against photographs (i) of other users to prevent identity-borrowing, and (ii) from public databases to verify user identity.
  • Using device, location, profile, usage, and other data to prevent, detect, and combat fraud or unsafe activities. 
  • Using user ratings and feedback to encourage compliance with our Community Guidelines and as grounds for deactivating drivers and delivery persons with low ratings or who otherwise violated such guidelines in certain countries.
3- Customer support. MexRide uses the information we collect (including recordings of customer support calls with notice to and the consent of the user) to provide customer support, including to: 
  • Direct questions to the appropriate customer support person 
  • Investigate and address user concerns
  • Monitor and improve our customer support responses and processes
4- Research and development. We may use the data we collect for testing, research, analysis, product development, and machine learning to improve the user experience. This helps us to improve and enhance the safety and security of our services, improve our ability to prevent the use of our services for illegal or improper purposes, develop new features and products, and facilitate insurance and finance solutions in connection with our services.
5- Enabling communications between users. For example, a driver may message or call a rider to confirm a pickup location, a rider may contact a driver to retrieve a lost item, or a restaurant or delivery persons may call a delivery recipient with information about their order.
6- Marketing. MexRide may use the data we collect to market our services to our users. This includes sending users communications about MexRide services, features, promotions, sweepstakes, studies, surveys, news, updates, and events. 
We may also send communications to our users about products and services offered by MexRide partners. For example, if a user has placed an MexRide Eats order, we may provide recommendations, promotions, or ads about similar food offered by other MexRide partners. Although we may send users communications about MexRide partners’ products and services, we do not sell users’ personal data to, or share it with, such partners or others for purposes of their own direct marketing or advertising, except with users’ consent.
We may use the data we collect to personalize the marketing communications (including advertisements) that we send, including based on user location, past use of MexRide’s services, and user preferences and settings.
We may also send users communications regarding elections, ballots, referenda, and other political and notice processes that relate to our services. For example, MexRide has notified some users by email of ballot measures or pending legislation relating to the availability of MexRide’s services in those users’ areas.
7- Non-marketing communications. MexRide may use the data we collect to generate and provide users with receipts; inform them of changes to our terms, services, or policies; or send other communications that aren’t for the purpose of marketing the services or products of MexRide or its partners. 
8- Legal proceedings and requirements. We may use the personal data we collect to investigate or address claims or disputes relating to use of MexRide’s services, or as otherwise allowed by applicable law, or as requested by regulators, government entities, and official inquiries.
9- Automated decision-making
We use personal data to make automated decisions relating to use of our services. This includes:
  • Enabling dynamic pricing, in which the price of a ride, or the delivery fee for MexRide Eats orders, is determined based on constantly varying factors such as the estimated time and distance, the predicted route, estimated traffic, and the number of riders and drivers using MexRide at a given moment.
  • Matching available drivers and delivery persons to users requesting services. Users can be matched based on availability, proximity, and other factors. 
  • Determining driver and delivery person ratings, and deactivating drivers, riders, and delivery persons with low ratings. 
  • Deactivating users who are identified as having engaged in fraud or activities that may otherwise harm MexRide, its users, and others. In some cases, such as when a user is determined to be abusing MexRide’s referral program, such behavior may result in automatic deactivation.
  • Using driver location information, and communications between riders and drivers, to identify cancellation fees earned or induced through fraud. For example, if we determine by using such information that a driver is delaying a rider pickup in order to induce a cancellation, we will not charge the rider a cancellation fee and will adjust the amounts paid to the driver to omit such a fee. To object to such adjustment, please contact MexRide customer support.
Click the links in this section for more information about these processes. To object to a deactivation resulting from these processes, please contact MexRide customer support.

Some of MexRide’s products, services, and features require that we share data with other users or at a user’s request. We may also share data with our affiliates, subsidiaries, and partners, for legal reasons or in connection with claims or disputes.
MexRide may share the data we collect:
1- With other users

  • For those who participate in MexRide’s referral program, we share certain personal data of referred users, such as trip count, with the user who referred them, to the extent relevant to determining the referral bonus.
2- At the user’s request
This includes sharing data with:
  • Other people at the user’s request. For example, we share a user’s ETA and location with a friend when requested by that user, or a user’s trip information when they split a fare with a friend.
  • MexRide business partners. For example, if a user requests a service through a partnership or promotional offering made by a third party, MexRide may share certain data with those third parties. This may include, for example, other services, platforms, apps, or websites that integrate with our APIs; vehicle suppliers or services; those with an API or service with which we integrate; or restaurant partners or other MexRide business partners and their users in connection with promotions, contests, or specialized services.
3- With the general public 
Questions or comments from users submitted through public forums such as MexRide blogs and MexRide social media pages may be viewable by the public, including any personal data included in the questions or comments submitted by a user. 
4- With the MexRide account owner
If a user requests transportation or places an order using an account owned by another party, we may share their order or trip information, including real-time location data, with the owner of that account. This occurs, for example, when:
  • A rider uses their employer’s MexRide for Business profile, such as when they take trips arranged through MexRide
  • A driver or delivery person uses an account owned by or associated with an MexRide partner transportation company or restaurant
  • A rider takes a trip arranged by a friend or under a Family Profile
  • A delivery person acts as a substitute
5- With MexRide subsidiaries and affiliates
We share data with our subsidiaries and affiliates to help us provide our services or conduct data processing on our behalf. For example, MexRide processes and stores data in the United States on behalf of its international subsidiaries and affiliates.

MexRide provides data to vendors, consultants, marketing partners, research firms, and other service providers or business partners. These include:
  • Payment processors and facilitators

MexRide may share users’ personal data if we believe it’s required by applicable law, regulation, operating license or agreement, legal process or governmental request, or where the disclosure is otherwise appropriate due to safety or similar concerns. 
This includes sharing personal data with law enforcement officials, public health officials, other government authorities, airports (if required by the airport authorities as a condition of operating on airport property), or other third parties as necessary to enforce our Terms of Service, user agreements, or other policies; to protect MexRide’s rights or property or the rights, safety, or property of others; or in the event of a claim or dispute relating to the use of our services. If you use another person’s credit card, we may be required by law to share your personal data, including trip or order information, with the owner of that credit card.
This also includes sharing personal data with 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.
8- With consent
MexRide may share a user’s personal data other than as described in this notice if we notify the user and they consent to the sharing.
E. Data retention and deletion
MexRide retains user data for as long as necessary for the purposes described above.
Users may request deletion of their accounts at any time. MexRide may retain user data after a deletion request due to legal or regulatory requirements or for the reasons stated in this policy.
MexRide retains user data for as long as necessary for the purposes described above. This means that we retain different categories of data for different periods of time depending on the category of user to whom the data relates, the type of data, and the purposes for which we collected the data. 
Users may request deletion of their account at any time through the Settings > Privacy menus in the MexRide app, or through MexRide’s website.
Following an account deletion request, MexRide deletes the user’s account and data, unless they must be retained due to legal or regulatory requirements, for purposes of safety, security, and fraud prevention, or because of an issue relating to the user’s account such as an outstanding credit or an unresolved claim or dispute. Because we are subject to legal and regulatory requirements relating to drivers and delivery persons, this generally means that we retain their account and data for a minimum of 7 years after a deletion request. For riders and delivery recipients, their data is generally deleted within 90 days of a deletion request, except where retention is necessary for the above reasons.
F. Grounds for processing
We only collect and use personal data where we have lawful grounds to do so. These include processing user personal data to provide requested services and features, for purposes of MexRide’s legitimate interests or those of other parties, to fulfill our legal obligations, or based on consent.
We collect and use personal data only where we have one or more lawful grounds for doing so. Such grounds may vary depending on where our users are located, but generally include processing personal data: 
A- To provide requested services and features
In order to provide our services, we must collect and use certain personal data. This includes: 
  • User profile data, which we use to establish and maintain user accounts; verify user identity; communicate with users about their trips, orders, and accounts; and enable users to make payments or receive earnings 
  • Background trip information, which is used to verify an applicant’s eligibility to be a driver or delivery person
  • Driver and delivery person location data, which we use to track trips and assist with navigation
  • Usage data, which is necessary to maintain, optimize, and enhance MexRide’s services, including to determine incentives, connect riders and drivers, and calculate costs of trips and driver earnings
  • Transaction information
  • Information relating to customer support 
B- For purposes of the legitimate interests of MexRide or other parties
This includes using personal data to maintain and enhance our users’ safety and security. For example, we use personal data to prevent use of our services by users who have engaged in inappropriate or dangerous behavior, such as by retaining data of banned users to prevent their use of MexRide’s apps. We also use usage data to prevent matching of riders and drivers for whom there is higher risk of conflict (for instance, because they have been the subject of prior complaints from other users). 
This also includes purposes such as combating fraud; improving our services, direct marketing, research, and development; and enforcing MexRide’s Terms of Service.

In addition, it includes using personal data to the extent necessary for the interests of other people or the general public, such as in connection with legal or insurance claims, and to protect the rights and safety of others.

C- To fulfill MexRide’s legal obligations 
For example, MexRide is subject to laws and regulations in many cities and countries that require it to collect and retain data about our users’ trips and deliveries, and to provide copies of such data to the government or other authorities. We collect and use personal data to comply with such laws. 
MexRide may also share data with law enforcement regarding criminal acts or threats to public safety, or requests by third parties pursuant to legal processes. MexRide may also share information with public health authorities where required or permitted by law. For more information about such sharing, please see MexRide’s Guidelines for Law Enforcement Authorities - United StatesGuidelines for Law Enforcement Authorities - Outside the US, and Guidelines for Third Party Data Requests and Service of Legal Documents.
D- With consent 
MexRide may collect and use personal data based on the user’s consent. For example, we may collect personal data through voluntary surveys. Responses to such surveys are collected on the basis of consent and will be deleted once no longer necessary for the purposes collected. 

A user who has provided consent to a collection or use of their personal data can revoke it at any time. However, the user will not be able to use any service or feature that requires collection or use of that personal data.
IV. Choice and transparency
MexRide enables users to access and control the data that MexRide collects, including through: 
  • In-app settings
  • Device permissions
  • In-app ratings pages
  • Marketing opt-outs 
MexRide also enables users to request access to or copies of their data, changes or updates to their accounts, deletion of their accounts, or that MexRide restrict its processing of user personal data. 
A- Privacy settings
Settings menus in the MexRide app for riders give them the ability to set or update their location-sharing preferences and their preferences for receiving mobile notifications from MexRide. Information about these settings, how to set or change these settings, and the effect of turning off these settings is described below. 
  • Location data
MexRide uses riders’ device location services to make it easier to get a ride whenever they need one. Location data helps improve our services, including pickups, navigation, and customer support. 
Riders may enable or disallow MexRide to collect location data from their mobile devices through the Settings > Privacy menus in the MexRide app. Riders and delivery recipients can enable or disallow such collections through the settings on their mobile device. 
  • Share Live Location (riders)
Riders who have enabled MexRide to collect location data from their mobile device may also enable MexRide to share their location with their driver from the time the ride is requested to the start of the trip. This can help improve pickups for both drivers and riders, particularly in crowded areas.
Riders may enable or disable this feature through the Settings > Privacy menus in the MexRide app.
  • Emergency Data Sharing (riders) 
Riders who have enabled MexRide to collect location data from their mobile device may also enable the Emergency Data Sharing feature that shares data with emergency police, fire, and ambulance services. Such data includes approximate location at the time the emergency call was placed; the car’s make, model, color, and license plate information; the rider’s name and phone number; pickup and dropoff locations; and the driver’s name.

Riders may enable or disable this feature through the Settings > Privacy menus or the Safety Center in the MexRide app.
  • Notifications: account and trip updates
MexRide provides users with trip status notifications and updates related to activity on their account. These notifications are a necessary part of using the MexRide app and cannot be disabled. However, users may choose the method by which they receive these notifications through the Settings > Privacy menus in the MexRide app.
  • Notifications: discounts and news
Users may enable MexRide to send push notifications about discounts and news from MexRide. Push notifications may be enabled or disabled through the Settings > Privacy menus in the MexRide app.
  • Communications from restaurant partners 
Delivery recipients who have opted in to communications from restaurant partners may stop sharing their data with each restaurant partner in their MexRide Eats account settings. 
B- Device permissions
Most mobile device platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without the device owner’s permission, and these platforms have different methods for how that permission can be obtained. iOS devices notify users the first time the MexRide app requests permission to access certain types of data and gives users the option to grant or refuse permission. Android devices notify users of the permissions that the MexRide app seeks before their first use of the app, and use of the app constitutes a grant of such permission.
C- Ratings look-up
After every trip, drivers and riders are able to rate each other on a scale from 1 to 5. An average of those ratings is associated with a user’s account and is displayed to other users for whom they provide or receive services. For example, rider ratings are available to drivers from whom they request transportation, and driver ratings are available to their riders. 
This 2-way system holds everyone accountable for their behavior. Accountability helps create a respectful, safe environment for drivers and riders. 
Riders can see their average rating in the main menu of the MexRide app. 
Drivers can see their average rating after tapping their profile photo in the MexRide Driver app.
Delivery persons are also rated by delivery recipients and restaurant partners. Click here for more information.
D- Marketing opt-outs
Users may opt out of receiving promotional emails from MexRide. Users may also opt out of receiving emails and other messages from MexRide by following the unsubscribe instructions in those messages. We may still send users who have opted out non-promotional communications, such as receipts for rides or information about their account.
