Introduction.

At Zendrive, the protection of your personal information is important to us. This Privacy Policy explains how Zendrive Inc., its subsidiary Zendrive India Private Limited., and affiliated entities (together, “Zendrive”, “Company”, “we” or “us”) collect, use, share, and process the personal information of users of the services offered or made available by Company including those at or described in www.zendrive.com and those offered or made available through corresponding sites on social media outlets or through corresponding applications on mobile devices (collectively, the “Service” or “Services”). By using or accessing the Site or other Services or by submitting information to Company, you consent to terms of this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy applies to both (a) individuals and entities that sign up or contract directly with Company for any of the Services (referred to herein as “Client”, “you”, “your” and “users”) and (b) individuals and entities whose information and data is provided to or collected by Company directly or indirectly through its Services, including any such individuals and entities who are customers or users of Client’s own products or services (“Client Services”), for example, drivers who work for or are customers of a social transportation network, an insurance company, or another business (any of such parties referred to herein as a “Client Customer” or “Client Customers”).

Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to our information-gathering, use, and dissemination practices in connection with our Services. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any of our information practices conducted separately by the Company outside of the Services. Furthermore, this Privacy Policy does not apply to Client Services and therefore Client Customers are encouraged to read the Clients’ own privacy statements with respect to any use of such Client Services.

This Privacy Policy is written in the English language. We do not guarantee the accuracy of any translated versions of this Privacy Policy. To the extent any translated versions of this Privacy Policy conflict with the English language version, the English language version of this Privacy Policy shall control.

What Information Do We Collect?

We receive or collect your personal information to carry out the obligations arising from providing and improving the Service and for the other uses expressly described in this Privacy Policy below. This section describes the types and categories of personal information we may collect, and the next section of this Privacy Policy below describes how we may use that information.

Information You Provide To Us Directly.

When you sign up or contract for the Service or create an account with the Service, we may receive or collect one or more of the following items: name, address, email address, telephone number, account identifiers, account password, payment information, credit card information and other billing data. For example, you may provide personal information directly to us in connection with signing up, registering or interacting with Zendrive through the use of the Service, when you set up an account for Services, when you subscribe to email alerts, updates or newsletters, or when you respond to a survey, fill out a form, or complete or update any user or Client profile through the Service.

Client Customer Data.

Client Customer Data consists of personal and non-personal information collected from Client Customers as a result of using Client Services that is then received or collected by Company in connection with the Services (“Client Customer Data”).

You agree not to provide or arrange for us to access— through the use and implementation of our Services or otherwise— any Client Customer Data that we are not permitted to use in accordance with this Privacy Policy, other applicable agreements, or any applicable law.

As a result of your use of the Service, we may collect the following Client Customer Data: an individual’s gender, city or state of residence, age, characteristics, driving behavior, driving locations and driving activities as well as data regarding particular trips one has taken, types of vehicles used and similar information. We collect, receive, and store non-identifying data when you directly provide it to us through the Services, or when a Client Customer provides it through the use of Client Services that employ or are connected to the Services. Client may choose to share additional Client Customer Data with us, such as name, email address and other information, which will then identify the user associated with the Client Customer Data.

Information We Automatically Collect.

We may receive, collect, generate and store certain types of information whenever you use the Service, as well as when Client Customers use the Client Services or otherwise interact with us. For example, one of our applications or Services may collect data regarding driving activities or behavior and our Services may then analyze such data and generate derivative data or aggregated data as well as reports and other output.

As another example, we may automatically record your activity when using the Service such as the time and date of your activities, your IP address, browser type, Internet Service Provider, page views, domains, operating system, and similar information.

Also, we may automatically send and receive information to and from a computer, mobile phone or other devices in connection with the use of the Services. Like many websites and online services, we may also use “cookies” (see the below section titled “Our Use of Cookies” for more information), log files, web beacon technologies, and other automated tools to obtain certain types of information when a web browser, mobile application or other applications accesses the Services. This information helps us provide the Service and design and improve the Service to better help our users.

User Content.

User Content is information, data, text, files, software, graphics, music, audio, photographs, video, messages, communications or other materials (other than personal information or Client Customer Data), that you or Client Customers upload, submit, post, transmit, share or otherwise provide on, through the Service.

Information provided by our users is an important part of our business. Company will share and disclose information submitted, collected, received or generated from or about you or from or about Client Customers only as compatible with the purposes described in this Privacy Policy and as permitted by law. You are responsible for ensuring the legal basis for processing and obtaining any required consent from your Client Customers and providing such notice to your Client Customers as part of your use of the Service. Information is shared with or disclosed to others as follows:

  • Aggregated Data and Anonymous Data: Company may publish and otherwise disclose on an aggregated basis, information (including derivative information and analyses) relating to usage and users of the Services. Company may also publish and disclose information that does not contain personal information or is de-identified and not connected to the name of an individual or entity nor connected to similar information that would allow one to be specifically identified or contacted;
  • Disclosures In Connection with Permitted Uses. Company may disclose your and Client Customer Data (other than personal information) to third parties in connection with the purposes described in the previous section such as, for example, to commercialize non-identifying information relating to usage and users of the Services or to implement advertising, marketing or promotional activities or transactions. Company may also share information from and about Client Customers with you. Company may also disclose the name of entities who have signed up for Services or otherwise contracted with Company in the Company’s own marketing, advertising, and promotional materials;
  • Company Affiliates: We may share your and your Client Customer Data with our subsidiaries and other affiliates, but only if those entities are either subject to this Privacy Policy or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Policy;
  • Public Forum: Any User Content or other user information, content or materials submitted, posted, shared, transmitted or otherwise provided to public portions of the Service may be shared with the public without restriction. Company also reserves the right to publish or make publicly available any information that is already publicly available prior to the time first provided to or collected by Company or information that becomes publicly available without any action or omission on the part of Company;
  • Contractors, Collaborators and Agents: We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions or services for Company or otherwise act on our behalf.

These third parties may have access to the personal information and other information needed to perform their functions on our behalf. We use reasonable efforts to require these companies to (1) provide adequate protections for personal information that are no less protective than those set out in this Privacy Policy and (2) use personal information only for the purposes for which the third party has been engaged by us. We are not liable for the acts or omissions of these third parties, except as provided by applicable law;
  • Business Transfers and Collaborations: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell the Company or its business or assets or sell or buy online sites, services, subsidiaries, or other businesses; or we might collaborate or partner with other companies in strategic transactions, business arrangements or licenses. In such transactions, customer and user information and information regarding usage of the Services (including without limitation Client data, User Content and Client Customer Data) generally would be one of the transferred business assets or otherwise one of the components of, or involved in, the transaction; we may therefore share this information in connection with such transactions or arrangements;
  • Compliance with Law and Protection of Company and Others: We reserve the right to disclose personal information and any other information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, judicial proceeding, court order, subpoena or other legal process; detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, emergency situations or technical issues; enforce or apply our TOU, Terms of Service and other agreements, rights and remedies; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Company, our employees and contractors, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction purposes.

The Services may include or interoperate with applications, services, features or functionalities provided by third parties. In connection with such third party applications, services, features or functionalities, you may send (or such third parties may get access to) certain information about or related to you or your activities therewith. The use, storage, and disclosure of such information by these third parties is subject to their own privacy policies.

Security and Protection of Your Information.

Zendrive prioritizes safeguarding your information and protecting the security of your personal information and your Client Customer Data. We use appropriate, industry-appropriate security measures and technology to protect against unauthorized access to, or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of, user information covered by this Privacy Policy (excluding any such data that may be disclosed or publicly shared in accordance with this Privacy Policy). In this regard, we employ administrative, physical and technical measures designed to protect personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure and to safeguard such information against loss, theft, alteration, and destruction. No method of security is 100% secure.

We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of unencrypted electronically stored personal information (as defined in applicable statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on or through the Services in an expedient manner and without unreasonable delay, insofar as these are consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement, (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system, and (iii) applicable law.
