What Information We Collect

Information Collected About You

You may provide us with certain information in connection with a transaction or in your interactions with our website and/or our mobile application (or “app”). We collect the following types of personal information from you:

  • Your name, gender, contact information, date of birth, driver’s license information, number and expiration date, language preference, and emergency contact information;
  • Vehicle rental information, including the location of where the vehicle is rented, date of rental, type of rental and your preferences;
  • Your credit card details, online user account details, customer membership/corporate ID numbers, passport information, business name and contact information (if applicable) and school affiliation (if applicable);
  • Information you provide regarding your marketing preferences or in the course of participating in surveys or promotional offers;
  • Photographs you submit of you and your driver’s license including your invoice receipts, if applicable, through camera features that may be available on our mobile application and/or website; and
  • Information about relevant health conditions you have that assist us in providing you with adaptive driving devices.

Third parties provide us with additional information about you, including:

  • Background check companies who provide us with information about your driving/motor vehicle record and driver’s license status.
  • Identity verification companies who provide us with information about you in order for us to verify your identity.
  • Service Providers, such as customer support (customer service-related information and enquiries made by you), customer survey providers (your response to our customer service surveys) and marketing providers (information to assist us to better communicate our products and services or the products or services of our affiliates).

We will access location-based information of the vehicle from hardware retrofitted in the vehicle. We will use this information solely to enable you to locate an available vehicle or to provide you with other information that we think will be helpful in providing you with better services. We are only able to identify you using the location-based information allowing you to locate the vehicle if you log into our mobile application.

With your consent, our app will utilize your device’s camera but only during the application registration process when you are required to take a selfie photograph which we then match against the picture displayed on your driver’s license and also prior to a trip if you wish to report damage or other issue with the rental vehicle prior to trip initiation. If you have allowed us to utilize your location information or your device’s camera in the past and wish to revoke the permissions, please change the settings on your device.

Vehicle Data

Our vehicles may be equipped with technology that collects and transmits data. (“Vehicle Data Systems”).  This may include information collected from event data recorders, global positioning devices, telematics systems, or any other similar technology.  Some or all Vehicle Data Systems functionality will be active during rental periods.  Vehicle Data Systems will enable us to collect and use information such as where the vehicle is located before and after the trip but not during the trip. Once collected, this information may be combined with information you have provided us and used to generate information so that we can deliver better services.  Our use of information collected from the vehicle may include sharing information with our service providers as explained in this privacy policy.  Our use of the information may also include storage of this information after the expiration of the rental agreement. Your use of the Vehicle Data Systems made available to you is subject to the terms and conditions and privacy policy posted by the applicable Vehicle Data Systems provider and/or vehicle manufacturer, which may include system and service limitations, warranty exclusions, limitations of liability, wireless service provider terms, privacy practices, descriptions of use and sharing of information and user responsibilities.

We are not responsible for any data that is left in the vehicle as a result of your use. We cannot guarantee the privacy or confidentiality of such information and you must wipe it before you return the vehicle to us.

Telematics data may be shared as needed with law enforcement, emergency service providers, and others who assist in responding to an accident or incident, telematics service operators and/or those with whom we have a legal or contractual obligation to provide such data.
