CHG Rideshare Privacy Policy

Last updated February 12, 2021



This policy applies to all CHG Ride users, including Members and Drivers.

The Information We Collect:

Account Creation. When you create an account with CHG Ride, we collect the information you provide us, such as your name, email address, phone number, birth date, and payment information.

Driver Information. If you are a driver, we will collect the information, including your name, email address, phone number, birth date, profile photo, physical address, government identification number (such as social security number), driver’s license information, vehicle information, and car insurance information.

Ratings and Feedback. When you rate and provide feedback about Members or Drivers, we collect all the information you provide in your feedback. This feedback is not shared with any outside entities.

Communications. When you contact us or we contact you, we collect any information that you provide, including the contents of the messages or attachments you send us.

Location Permissions. We collect the data of your exact or approximate location, which is obtained through services such as GPS, IP address and Wi-Fi. If you are a Driver or Member, we collect your location data when the app is running in the foreground (open app and on screen) or in the background (app open, but not on screen) on your device. If you are a user and have authorized the processing of location data, we will collect it when the app runs in the foreground and when the app is running in the background if you gave your consent through the app settings or device permissions. Drivers or Members can use the app without being allowed to collect location data. However, this can affect how it works. For example, if you do not want to collect your location data, you will need to enter the address of the departure point manually. 

Usage Information. We collect information about your use of the CHG Ride Platform, including ride information like the date, time, destination, distance, and route.

Device Information. We collect information about the devices you use to access the CHG Ride Platform, including device model, IP address, type of browser, version of operating system, identity of carrier and manufacturer, radio type (such as 4G), preferences and settings (such as preferred language), application installations, device identifiers, advertising identifiers, and push notification tokens.

Communications Between Members and Drivers. We work with a third party to facilitate phone calls and text messages between Members and Drivers without sharing either party’s actual phone number with the other. But while we use a third party to provide the communication service, we collect information about these communications, including the participants’ phone numbers, the date and time, and the contents of SMS messages.
