Yazz Privacy Policy

Last Updated: June 5, 2020

 

We recognize that your privacy is very important. This privacy policy covers the policies of Yazz (“Yazz”) on the collection, use, and disclosure of your information, including any personally identifiable information or other data collected that could directly or indirectly identify you (“Personal Data”) when you access the Yazz website (the “Site”), our mobile application (the “App”) or anytime you use our other products or services (the Site, the App and other YAZZ products and services, altogether, the “Services”).

Each time you use our Services, you consent to the collection, use and storage of the collected information as described in this Privacy Policy. Please read it carefully and contact us at customerservice@yazzapp.com  if you have any questions.

 

  1. What information do we collect?

Account Registration Information.  If wish to register for an account, we may collect your name, phone number, email address, photo and password. If you decide to sign up for our Services using your Facebook, Apple ID or other 3rd party account, we will also get basic information from your 3rd party account profile like your name, your 3rd party account user id and your email address.

Photos of User Items. As part of our Services, to allow Drivers to assess the Tasks, we may ask you to upload photos, or utilize our App features to take photos, of your items to be moved during your Task.

User Payment Information.  As part of our Services, our third party payment processing service provider, Stripe, may collect credit card information or other payment method information from you. We do not store these information on our servers.

Driver Information.  If you are interested in becoming a Driver, as part of the application process we may collect information such as your name, physical address, driver’s license information, vehicle information, car registration information, car insurance information, and in some jurisdictions we may collect additional business license or permitting information. We may receive from our third party partners information such as publicly available information about your driving record or criminal history.

Driver Background Check Information.  If you are interested in becoming a Driver, as part of the application process our third party background check service provider, such as Checkr, may collect information such as your name, date of birth and social security number or other information from you. We do not store your date of birth or social security number information on our servers.

Driver Tax and Payment Information.  As part of our Services, our third party payment processing service provider, Stripe, may collect credit card information, bank account information or other payment method information from you. We do not store the payment information on our servers.

 

Location Information.  In order for us to match you with nearby Drivers, determining drop off and pickup locations, we need to know your location. When you open the App on your mobile device, we receive your location.  Driver’s location information and distance travelled is necessary for calculating charges and insurance.  We may also collect the precise location of your device when the App is running in the foreground or background

Mobile Device Data. When you access our App through a mobile device, we receive information from your devices, including IP address, web browser type, mobile operating system version, phone carrier and manufacturer, application installations, device identifiers, push notification tokens, and, if you register with your Facebook account, your Facebook identifier. We collect mobile sensor data from Drivers’ devices (such as speed, direction, height, acceleration or deceleration) to improve location accuracy and analyze usage patterns.

Ratings. Users and Drivers may rate and review each other at the end of every Task. We receive information about ratings and reviews and, as we explain below, give Users information about Drivers’ ratings and reviews and vice versa.

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

Cookies. We collect information through the use of “cookies”, tracking pixels, and similar technologies to understand how you navigate through the Yazz Platform 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 Yazz 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 Yazz Platform.

Services and Customer Support. We may collect information such as your name, phone number and email address to the extent necessary for us to provide the Services that you have requested and/or to provide customer support.

Yazz will not be responsible in the event that you disclose private or confidential information in your posts, through our public services or during any other communication with other Users.

These might include retention periods (i) mandated by law, contract or similar obligations applicable to our business operations; (ii) for preserving, resolving, defending or enforcing our legal/contractual rights (for example, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, assist with investigations, enforce our Terms of Service); or (iii) needed to maintain adequate and accurate business and financial records.  If you have any questions about the security or retention of your Personal Data, you can contact us at customerservice@yazzapp.com.

We have implemented reasonable administrative, technical and physical security measures to protect your personal information against unauthorized access, destruction or alteration.

However, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can ever by 100% secure.
