Last Updated: January 1, 2019

This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) was developed as an extension of the commitment made by VeoRide, Inc., an Indiana corporation d/b/a VeoRide (“VeoRide”) to combine quality products and services with integrity in dealing with its customers (“You” or “Your”) accessing or using VeoRide’s websites and/or mobile applications. This Privacy Policy applies to the VeoRide Terms of Service, found at www.veoride.com/terms, and Your access and use of all Services. Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meanings stated in the VeoRide Terms of Service.

This Privacy Policy explains how VeoRide collects, uses, and safeguards the information You provide to VeoRide and assists You in making informed decisions when using the Services.

1. CHANNELS VEORIDE COLLECTS INFORMATION FROM.

VeoRide collects information from You via its mobile application, websites, issue-reporting submissions submitted by You to VeoRide, emails sent by You to VeoRide, Your social media accounts, any job applications submitted directly or indirectly by You, and any information provided by You in any phone or other communication with VeoRide.

2. WHAT INFORMATION VEORIDE COLLECTS. Via the above channels, VeoRide may collect the following information from You:

2.1. “Personal Information” such as Your name, e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, credit card information, billing and contact information, demographic information, and location information; and

2.2. “Non-Personal Information” of a nature that does not personally identify You, including Your manner of access and use of VeoRide’s Services.

3. WHEN AND HOW VEORIDE COLLECTIONS INFORMATION. You may provide VeoRide or its agents with information in several ways, including, for example, when You: register for an account, create a user profile, or provide payment information; manage Your account; use one of VeoRide’s Services; register for an event sponsored by VeoRide; authorize VeoRide to collect Your social media information; upload content via VeoRide’s Services; sign up to receive alerts or other information via email, text or instant message from VeoRide; ask for customer service, support or other assistance; participate in communities or other forums, or comment on blog entries; interact with VeoRide in any other way, including through one of its Services; or submit an application to work at VeoRide.

3.1. Location Information. With Your consent, VeoRide collects information about Your location from its Services. For example, while You are renting a Vehicle, VeoRide may collect information about the location of the Vehicle, the routes taken by the Vehicle, and the rental status of the Vehicle. VeoRide also collect information about Your location that You provide or enable VeoRide to collect through the Services. VeoRide also collects Your device’s source IP address, which may disclose the location of Your device at the time You access the Services. While You can always decide not to share information about Your location with VeoRide, You must agree to provide certain types of location information, including, for example, the location of any Vehicle while You are renting it, if You want to use certain aspects of the Services.

3.2. Personal Information from or Through Social Media Platforms. When You interact with any page or account on a social media platform, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, LinkedIn, YouTube, or Pinterest, VeoRide may collect the Personal Information that You make available on that page or account, including Your account ID or “handle” and that the social media platform permits VeoRide to collect, in compliance with their privacy policy. If You publish Your social media profile on the Services, VeoRide may collect Personal Information that You make available as part of that profile.

3.3. Personal Information from Other Sources. VeoRide may also collect Personal Information from other sources or from offline interactions to, among other things, verify and update information contained in VeoRide’s records and to better customize the Services for You. VeoRide may also collect Personal Information about You from credit reporting agencies to, for example, determine Your creditworthiness, credit score, and credit usage.

3.4. Personal Information from Surveys or Promotions. From time to time, VeoRide may provide You with the opportunity to participate in surveys or promotions, some of which might be sponsored or conducted by a third party. Participation in these surveys and promotions are completely voluntary. If You choose to participate, VeoRide will request certain Personal Information from You. If there is a third-party sponsor involved in the survey or promotion, please make sure to review the sponsor’s privacy notice.

3.5. Personal Information about Third Parties We Collect Using the Tell-A-Friend Feature. VeoRide may from time to time conduct a referral service to introduce people You know to the Services. If You choose to use such referral service to tell someone about the Services or any promotion thereof, VeoRide may ask You for Your contact’s name, phone number or email address. VeoRide will automatically send Your contact a one-time email or text message inviting him or her to access and/or use the Services. VeoRide will store this information for the purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of the referral program. Your contact may contact VeoRide to request that this information be removed from VeoRide’s database.

3.6. Personal Information We Collect Using Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies. Like many websites and mobile applications, VeoRide may use “cookies”, which are small text files that are stored on Your computer or equipment when You visit certain online pages that record Your preferences and actions. VeoRide may also use cookies to monitor traffic, improve the Services, and make it easier and/or relevant for Your use. Like many apps and websites, VeoRide may use cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to record Your preferences, track the use of the Services and Your interaction with advertisements, monitor traffic, improve the Services, and make it easier, and more relevant, for You. VeoRide may also use cookies to: find Your account information when You access the Services (a cookie is created when You register for an Account); determine the browser You are using so the Services work properly; assist with sending You e-mail newsletters; generate analytics regarding Your use of Services; and estimate VeoRide’s audience size by determining whether Your visit is Your first.

VeoRide may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies, but does not currently use flash cookies, web storage, web beacons or other technologies that track Your browsing history across multiple applications or websites.
VeoRide may also use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), on the Services. Google Analytics uses cookies or other tracking technologies to help analyze how users interact with and use the Services, compile reports on the related activities, and provide other services related to Your activity and usage. The technologies used by Google may collect information such as Your IP address, time of visit, whether You are a return visitor, and any referring website or application. The Services do not use Google Analytics to gather information that personally identifies You. The information generated by Google Analytics will be transmitted to and stored by Google and will be subject to Google’s privacy policies.

VeoRide may partner with third party advertising companies to better provide advertisements about its goods and services that may be of interest to You. These third-party advertisers may use cookies alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies to collect information about You when You use the websites or applications. They may collect information about Your online activities over time and across different websites, applications, or other online services. They may use this information to provide You with interest-based advertising or other targeted content. These online advertising partners do not have access to, or the ability to use and Personal Information from VeoRide without Your consent. They may, however, use persistent identifiers to anonymously track Your Internet usage across other websites and applications over which VeoRide has no control. Although VeoRide restricts their further use of any Personal Information they might receive from it, they may, with sufficient data from other sources, be able to personally identify You, without VeoRide knowing or having the ability to control.

Third-party ad serving companies and other unaffiliated advertisers also display advertisements on via the Services. As part of their service, they may place a separate cookie on Your computer or utilize other data collection and tracking technologies, to collect information such as Your IP address, browser type, the server Your computer is logged onto, the area code and zip code associated with Your server, and whether You responded to a particular advertisement. For a listing of the third party companies VeoRide may allow to place cookies to serve ads on the Services, click here. VeoRide does not control these third parties’ tracking technologies, how they may be used, or the information they may collect, and VeoRide is not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of those third parties. Please visit the sites of those businesses at the links above to review their privacy policies. VeoRide may add or change the list of third party ad servers from time to time and encourages You to regularly check this section for changes. You can learn more about online advertising at www.aboutads.info/consumers.

Many of the third-party advertisers that place tracking tools on or through the Services are members of programs that offer You additional choices regarding the collection and use of Your information. You can learn more about the options available to limit the collection and use of Your information by these third parties by visiting the applications for the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance, as well as the webpages for Facebook’s ad preferences tool and privacy policy. You can also learn about Your options to opt-out of mobile app tracking by certain advertising networks through Your device settings. For more information about how to change these settings for Apple, or Android, see:
Apple: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4228
Android: http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/

Please note that opting-out of advertising networks services does not mean that You will not receive advertising while using the Services or on other applications, nor will it prevent the receipt of interest-based advertising from third parties that do not participate in these programs. It will, however, exclude You from interest-based advertising conducted through participating networks, as provided by their policies and choice mechanisms. Your browser or device may include “Do Not Track” functionality. Because a “Do Not Track” compliance protocol has not yet been finalized, VeoRide’s information collection and disclosure practices, and the choices provided to You, will continue to operate as described in this Privacy Policy, whether or not a Do Not Track signal is received. If You delete Your cookies or if You set Your browser or device to decline these technologies, some functions of the Services may not function at all, or may not function as designed.

3.7. Consolidating Your Personal Information. VeoRide may use the information from one portion of one of the Services for other portions thereof, and may combine Personal Information gathered from multiple sources, including Personal Information collected off-line or receive from third-party sources to enhance, expand, and check the accuracy of Your customer records, into a single customer record or analysis or report. VeoRide follows this Privacy Policy with respect to all of Your Personal Information regardless of how it was collected.

3.8. Non-Personal Information Collected. VeoRide and third party vendors may collect information about Your computer hardware and software, such as browser information, access times, the date and time of visits, the website pages viewed, time spent at VeoRide’s website, websites that You visited just before and just after Your visit to VeoRide’s website, riding time on a Vehicle, length of Vehicle operation, speed while operating a Vehicle, and certain other information collected through cookies, pixel tags, mobile applications, and other technologies.
