What We Collect

Preamble. To identify yourself as the owner of your vehicle timelines, and to assist us with providing support, you agree to provide us with your personal information; and allow that information to be sent to and stored on our servers. We collect the following types of personal information:   

Information we collect automatically. For support purposes, when accessing MyRide901 via a mobile device operating system (e.g. Android, is, etc.), we automatically collect the information sent to us by your mobile device. This information includes, but is not limited to:

  • type and version of the operating system installed on the mobile device; and
  • date and time of app use and other statistics as we deem necessary.

In addition, the app uses third party services that may collect information used to identify you (for example: Google Play Services, Google Analytics for Firebase, Firebase Crashlytics). When accessing MyRide901 via web browser, the IP address of the computer or the mobile device is stored by us. In addition, we store the following:

  • Browser type/version;
  • Operating system used;
  • Referrer URL (previously visited page);

  • Time of server request; and
  • Used IP address (possibly in anonymous form).

When you are calling app services via mobile devices, please note that location data is regularly transmitted to us. You can turn off the location-based services on your device. 

Information you provide to us. We collect and store any information you enter on our website or that you provide to us when you use our Services. This information includes, but is not limited to:

  • information that you provide to us when you register for an account or for the Services that you use;
  • additional information that you may provide to us through social media sites or third party services;
  • information and content you upload to our applications;

You have the option to share timelines and/or service events details for vehicle profiles you have created in the applications such as: the name given to the service event; notes about the service event; date, mileage and service provider contact information associated with the service event; parts and service for the service event; and chat messages in the service event. These service event details are accessible and can be seen and modified, where you have allowed them to be modified, by all registered and unregistered users of the applications with whom you have shared them, either as service events on the timeline or directly from a specific service event. Furthermore, files uploaded to the app and added to vehicle service events are visible and can be deleted, where you have allowed the service events to be modified, by all registered and unregistered users of the app with whom you have shared these service events. For purposes of analysis of customer satisfaction, we occasionally conduct customer surveys via e-mail or telephone. This is usually done anonymously. Your replies to the customer survey are not stored with your personal data but anonymously for statistical evaluation. We handle your data in accordance with the provisions of data protection law and meet their safety precautions. In the context of contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), personal data are collected. Data collected in the case of a contact form can be seen from the respective contact form. These data are stored and used solely for the purpose of answering your request or for establishing contact and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your request if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question is finally clarified and provided that no statutory storage requirements are in conflict. 

Information from other sources. We may receive or collect additional information about you from third parties and add this to our account information. This information includes, but is not limited to: demographic data, navigation data, additional contact data and additional data about you from other sources, such as public authorities, to the extent permitted by law. 

How We Use It

Transfer of your personal information to third parties. We may disclose your personal information to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable legislation and regulations. We will not disclose your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. We may share your personal information with:

  • MyRide901 personnel and authorized consultants and/or contractors may have access to user information if necessary in the normal course of MyRide901’s business
  • We may share your personal information:
    • to comply with legal obligations or a court order; or
    • if this is necessary for the prevention, detection or prosecution of criminal offenses, such as fraud, deceit or prosecution, or
    • if it is necessary to maintain our policies or to protect the rights and freedoms of others.
  • companies that we intend to merge with in the context of a re-organisation or that acquire us.
  • MyRide901 may share user information as well as information from tools such as cookies, log files, device identifiers, and location data, with third-parties that help MyRide901 provide services to you (“Service Providers”). Our Service Providers will be given access to your information as is reasonably necessary for MyRide901 to provide our services. MyRide901 requires Service Providers to protect your data in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy and to limit the use of such information to the performance of services for MyRide901. MyRide901 may also remove parts of data that can identify you and share anonymized data with Service Providers, including combining your information with other information in a way that it is no longer associated with you.
  • Your personal information is stored on servers provided by a third-party cloud-based service provider that protects and stores your data in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.
  • Except as noted above, we will contact you when your personal information is shared with third parties or used for a purpose incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected, and you will be able to opt out to prevent the sharing of this information.

Information you share with others. Our application allows users to share timelines, service events, accident reports and related information with other registered users and non-registered users, thereby making this shared information accessible to other registered users and non-registered users. We recommend that you consider how you share your personal and vehicle information with others. You are solely responsible for the personal and vehicle information you share through our application and therefore we cannot guarantee the privacy or security of the information shared by you with other users and non-registered users. 

Suggested precautions. If you share your timeline and/or service events/accident reports with non-registered users (i.e. users who will access the application via a web browser), and these users are or will be accessing the application from a shared computer or a computer in an internet café, we strongly recommend that you advise these users to log off after each session. Further, if you do not want the shared computer to remember the timeline and/or service events/accident reports that have been accessed, the non-registered user will need to remove cookies and/or the history of his website visits. 

Where we store your data. We may transfer data to other members of our corporate family as described in this Privacy Policy who may process and keep your personal information on servers in the European Union, United States and our data centers in other parts of the world.

Cookies

When you use our Services, we and our service providers may place cookies (data files on your phone or mobile device’s drive) or web beacons (electronic images that are placed in a web page’s code) or similar technologies. We use cookies to help us identify non-registered users, who access the application via a web browser, to provide them with a better experience on our website and to ensure trust and safety on our website.
