2. Scope of this Privacy Policy

Cablr ("Cablr," "we," "our," and/or "us") values the privacy of individuals who use our application, websites, and related services (collectively, the "Cablr Platform "). This privacy policy (the "Privacy Policy") explains how we collect, use, and share information from Cablr users ("Users"), comprised of Cablr riders ("Riders"), transportation companies and their drivers who provide ground transportation services using the Cablr platform ("Independent Affiliate Operators"), companies who use the Cablr business partner portal to manage the transportation needs of their organization ("Business Partners"), individuals who sign up to become Cablr brokers ("Brokers") and Cablr drivers (including Driver applicants) ("Drivers"). Beyond the Privacy Policy, your use of Cablr is also subject to our Terms of Service (www.cablr.com/terms-services).

3. Information We Collect

A. Information You Provide to Us

Registration Information. When you sign up for a Cablr account, you give us your name, email address, and phone number.

Payment Method. When you add a credit card or payment method to your Cablr account, a third party that handles payments for us will receive your card information.. Cablr utilizes a third party, Stripe, to store and process payments. Stripe's privacy and terms can be viewed at https://stripe.com/privacy.

Communications. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you. For example, when you contact our Customer Support Team, we will receive your name, email address, phone number, the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other information you choose to provide.

If you decide to join our Cablr driver community, as a Driver, Business Partner, Independent Affiliate Operator or Broker, in addition to the basic registration information we ask you for your date of birth, physical address, Social Security number, driver's license information, vehicle information, car insurance information, and in some cases we may collect additional business license or permitting information. We share this information with a third-party partner Checkr.com who help us by running background checks on Drivers to help protect the Cablr community.

Payment Information. To make sure Drivers get paid, we keep information about Drivers' bank routing numbers, tax information, and any other payment information provided by Drivers.

B. Information We Collect When You Use the Cablr Platform

Location Information. Cablr is all about connecting Drivers and Riders. To do this, we need to know where you are. When you open Cablr on your mobile device, we receive your location. We may also collect the precise location of your device when the app is running in the foreground or background. If you label certain locations, such as "home" and "work," we receive that information, too.

Your location information is necessary for things like matching Riders with nearby Drivers, determining drop off and pick up locations, and suggesting destinations based on previous trips. In addition to the reasons described above, Drivers' location information and distance travelled is necessary for calculating charges and insurance for Cablr rides. If you give us permission through your device settings or Cablr app, we may collect your location while the app is off to identify promotions or service updates in your area.

Device Information. Cablr receives information from Users' devices, including IP address, web browser type, mobile operating system version, phone carrier and manufacturer, application installations, device identifiers, mobile advertising identifiers, and push notification tokens. We collect mobile sensor data from Drivers' devices (such as speed, direction, height, acceleration or deceleration) to improve location accuracy and analyze usage patterns.

Usage Information. To help us understand how you use the Cablr Platform and to help us improve it, we automatically receive information about your interactions with the Cablr Platform, like the pages or other content you view, your actions within the Cablr app, and the dates and times of your visits.

Call and Text Information. We work with a third-party partner plivo.com to facilitate phone calls and text messages between Riders and Drivers who have been connected for a ride. We receive information about these communications including the date and time of the call or SMS message, the parties' phone numbers, and the content of any SMS messages. For security purposes, we may also monitor and/or record the contents of phone calls made on the Cablr Platform, such as those between Riders and Drivers. You will be given notice that your call may be recorded, and by proceeding you agree to allow Cablr to monitor and/or record your call. plivo.com's privacy policy can be viewed at www.plivo.com/legal/privacy/ .

User Feedback. At Cablr, we want to make sure Users are always enjoying great rides. Riders and Drivers may rate and review each other at the end of every ride. We receive information about ratings and reviews and, as we explain below, give Riders information about Drivers' ratings and reviews and vice versa.

Address Book Contacts. If you permit Cablr 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 invitations and social interactions that you initiate through our Platform and for other purposes described in this privacy policy or at the time of consent or collection.

Information from Cookies and Similar Technologies. We collect information through the use of "cookies", tracking pixels, and similar technologies to understand how you navigate through the Cablr Platform and interact with Cablr advertisements, to learn what content is popular, and to save your preferences. Cookies are small text files that web servers place on your device; they are designed to store basic information and to help websites and apps recognize your browser. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be accessed every time you use the Cablr Platform. You should consult your web browser(s) to modify your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete or choose not to accept cookies from us, you may be missing out on certain features of the Cablr Platform.

Third Party Partners. We may receive additional information about you, such as demographic data, payment information, or fraud detection information, from third party partners and combine it with other information that we have about you.

Partner Programs. If your company, university, or organization participates in one of our Partner programs such as Cablr Auto Dealerships, we may receive information about you, such as your email address, from your participating organization. We also may give your participating organization the opportunity to request a ride on your behalf, in which case they may provide us with your name, phone number, and the pickup and drop off location for your ride.

Background Information on Drivers. Cablr works with third party partners to perform driving record and criminal background checks on Drivers, and we receive information from them such as publicly available information about a Driver's driving record or criminal history.

4. How We Use the Information We Collect

We use the information we collect from all Users to:

  • Connect Riders with Drivers;
  • Provide, improve, expand, and promote the Cablr Platform;
  • Analyze how the Cablr community uses the Cablr Platform;
  • Communicate with you, either directly or through one of our partners, including for marketing and promotional purposes;
  • Personalize the Cablr experience for you and your friends and contacts;
  • Send you text messages and push notifications;
  • Facilitate transactions and payments;

5. How We Share the Information We Collect

A. Sharing Between Users

Sharing between Riders and Drivers. Riders and Drivers that have been matched for a ride are able to see basic information about each other, such as names, photo, ratings, and any information they have added to their Profiles. Drivers see the pick-up location that the Rider has provided. Riders see a Driver's vehicle information and real-time location as the Driver approaches the pick-up location. Riders' ratings of Drivers are shared with Drivers on a weekly basis. We de-identify the ratings and feedback, but we can't rule out that a driver may be able to identify the Rider that provided the rating or feedback.

Sharing Information With Other Riders. Information is also shared when Riders split a fare among themselves or when using Cablr Touch. Cablr Touch is a system that provides the opportunity to monitor loved ones during their ride even when they are using their own separate Cablr account. Cablr may share your ETA, location and your trip information with a friend or family member at your request, when you use Cablr Touch.

We do not share your actual phone number or other contact information with other Users. If you report a lost or found item to us, we will seek to connect you with the relevant Rider or Driver, including sharing actual contact information with your permission.

B. Sharing Between Cablr and Third Parties

API and Integration Partners. If you connect to the Cablr Platform through an integration with a third party service, we may share information about your use of the Cablr Platform with that third party. We may share your information with our third party partners in order to receive additional information about you. We may also share your information with third party partners to create offers that may be of interest to you.

Third Party Services. The Cablr Platform may allow you to connect with other websites, products, or services that we don't have control over (for example, we may give you the ability to order a drink for your trip from a restaurant from within the Cablr app). If you use these services, we will provide the third party with information about you to allow them to provide the service to you (for example, we would give the restaurant your name, phone number and address to drop off the food). We can't speak to the privacy practices of these third parties, and we encourage you to read their privacy policies before deciding whether to use their services.

Service Providers. We work with third party service providers to perform services on our behalf, and we may share your information with such service providers to help us provide the Cablr Platform, including all of the things described in Section 3 above.

Partner or Broker Programs. If you participate in a partner or broker program and charge a ride to your organization's billing method or credits, we will provide your organization's account holder with information about your use of the Cablr Platform, including ride details such as date, time, charge, and pick up and drop off locations.

Other Sharing. We may share your information with third parties in the following cases:
