This may include their name, email, phone number, login name and password, address, profile picture, payment or banking information (including related payment verification information), government identification documents, including driver’s license numbers and images, birthdate, signature, and photo. This also includes vehicle or insurance information of drivers and delivery partners, and user settings.

      Background check and identity verification: We collect background check and identity verification information for drivers. 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 authorised vendor on Lumi Ride’s behalf.

Lumi Ride may also collect this data when the Lumi Ride app is running in the background of the user’s mobile device. Riders, may use the Lumi Ride apps without enabling Lumi Ride to collect location data from their mobile devices. However, this may affect some functionality available in the Lumi Ride app. For example, a user who has not enabled location data collection will have to manually enter their address. In addition, the location data collected from a driver during a trip will be linked to the rider’s account, even if they have not enabled location data to be collected from their device, including for purposes of receipt generation, customer support, fraud detection, insurance, and litigation.

      Transaction information: We collect transaction information related to the use of our services, including the type of services requested or provided, 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.

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 Lumi Ride through Lumi Ride’s mobile app and websites. For example, we enable drivers and riders, to call, text, or send other files to each other (generally without disclosing their telephone numbers to each other). To provide this service, Lumi Ride receives some data regarding the calls, texts, or other communications, including the date and time of the communications and the content of the communications.

        Deactivating users who are identified as having engaged in fraud or activities that may otherwise harm Lumi Ride, its users, and others. In some cases, such as when a user is determined to be abusing Lumi Ride’s referral program, such behaviour may result in automatic deactivation.

        Using driver location information, and communications between riders and drivers, to identify cancellation fees earned or induced through fraud.

    • 8. With consent

      Lumi Ride 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

    Lumi Ride retains user profile, transaction, and other personal data for as long as a user maintains their Lumi Ride account.

    Lumi Ride may retain certain user data after receiving an account deletion request if necessary, such as to comply with legal requirements.

    Lumi Ride retains user profile, transaction, and other information for as long as a user maintains their Lumi Ride account. For drivers, Lumi Ride also retains vehicle and background check information (to the extent permitted by law) for as long as they maintain their Lumi Ride account.

    Riders may request deletion of their account at any time through the Settings > Privacy menus in the Lumi Ride app. Following such requests, Lumi Ride deletes the data that it is not required to retain for purposes of regulatory, tax, insurance, litigation, or other legal requirements. For example, Lumi Ride retains location, device, and usage data for these purposes for a minimum of 7 years; while it retains such data, it may also use it for purposes of safety, security, fraud prevention and detection, and research and development. In certain circumstances, Lumi Ride may be unable to delete a user’s account, such as if there is an outstanding credit on the account or an unresolved claim or dispute. Upon resolution of the issue preventing deletion, Lumi Ride will delete the account as described above.

    Lumi Ride may also retain certain information if necessary, for purposes of safety, security, and fraud prevention. For example, if Lumi Ride deactivates a user’s account because of unsafe behaviour or security incidents, Lumi Ride may retain certain information about that account to prevent that user from opening a new Lumi Ride account in the future.

    (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 Lumi Ride’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

      Driver location data, which we use to track trips and assist with navigation

      Usage data, which is necessary to maintain, optimise, and enhance Lumi Ride’s services, including to determine incentives, connect riders and drivers.

      Transaction information

      Information relating to customer support

    • B. For purposes of the legitimate interests of Lumi Ride 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 Lumi Ride’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 Lumi Ride’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 Lumi Ride’s legal obligations

      For example, Lumi Ride is subject to laws and regulations that require it to collect and retain data about our users’ trips, and to provide copies of such data to the government or other authorities. We collect and use personal data to comply with such laws.

      Lumi Ride may also share data with law enforcement regarding criminal acts or threats to public safety, or requests by third parties pursuant to legal processes.

    • D. With consent

      Lumi Ride 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.

4. Choice and transparency

Lumi Ride enables users to access and control the data that Lumi Ride collects, including through:

  • In-app settings
  • Device permissions
  • In-app ratings pages
  • Marketing opt-outs

Lumi Ride also enables users to request access to or copies of their data, changes or updates to their accounts, deletion of their accounts, or that Lumi Ride restrict its processing of user personal data.

  • A. Privacy settings

    Settings menus in the Lumi Ride app for riders give them the ability to set or update their location-sharing preferences and their preferences for receiving mobile notifications from Lumi Ride. Information about these settings are managed through the Lumi Ride app.

5. Updates to this notice

We may occasionally update this notice. Use of our services after an update constitutes consent to the updated notice to the extent permitted by law.

We may occasionally update this notice. If we make significant changes, we will notify users in advance of the changes through the Lumi Ride apps or through other means, such as email. We encourage users to periodically review this notice for the latest information on our privacy practices.
