Sunride Privacy Policy


At sunride, we want to connect people through transportation and bring communities together. In this privacy policy, we tell you what information we receive from sunride riders and drivers, and how we use it to connect riders with drivers and continue to improve our services. Below, we explain how you can share with other riders and drivers in the sunride community as part of our mission to bring people together.

Information We Collect

A. Information You Provide to Us

Registration Information. When you sign up for a sunride account, you give us your name, email address, and phone number. If you decide to sign up for sunride using your Facebook account, we will also get basic information from your Facebook profile like your name, gender, profile photo, and Facebook friends.

User Profile Information. When you join the sunride community, you can create a sunride Profile to share fun facts about yourself, and discover mutual friends and interests. Filling out a profile is optional, and you can share as little or as much as you want. Your name (and for Drivers, Profile photos) is always part of your Profile.

Payment Method. When you add a credit card or payment method to your sunride account, a third party that handles payments for us will receive your card information. To keep your financial data secure, we do not store full credit card information on our servers.

Communications. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you. For example, when you contact our Customer Support Team, we will receive your name, email address, phone number, the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other information you choose to provide.

Driver Application Information. If you decide to join our sunride driver community, in addition to the basic registration information we ask you for your date of birth, physical address, Social Security number, driver’s license information, vehicle information, car insurance information, and in some jurisdictions we may collect additional business license or permitting information. We share this information with our partners who help us by running background checks on Drivers to help protect the sunride community.

Payment Information. To make sure Drivers get paid, we keep information about Drivers’ bank routing numbers, tax information, and any other payment information provided by Drivers.

B. Information We Collect When You Use the sunride Platform

Location Information. sunride is all about connecting Drivers and Riders. To do this, we need to know where you are. When you opensunride on your mobile device, we receive your location. We may also collect the precise location of your device when the app is running in the foreground or background. If you label certain locations, such as “home” and “work,” we receive that information, too.

Your location information is necessary for things like matching Riders with nearby Drivers, determining drop off and pick up locations, and suggesting destinations based on previous trips. Also, if the need ever arises, our Trust & Safety team may use and share location information to help protect the safety of sunride Users or a member of the public. In addition to the reasons described above, Drivers’ location information and distance travelled is necessary for calculating charges and insurance for sunride rides. If you give us permission through your device settings or sunride app, we may collect your location while the app is off to identify promotions or service updates in your area.

Device Information. sunride receives information from Users’ devices, including IP address, web browser type, mobile operating system version, phone carrier and manufacturer, application installations, device identifiers, mobile advertising 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.

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

Call and Text Information. We work with a third party partner to facilitate phone calls and text messages between Riders and Drivers who have been connected for a ride. We receive information about these communications including the date and time of the call or SMS message, the parties’ phone numbers, and the content of any SMS messages. For security purposes, we may also monitor and/or record the contents of phone calls made on the sunride Platform, such as those between Riders and Drivers. You will be given notice that your call may be recorded, and by proceeding you agree to allow sunride to monitor and/or record your call.

User Feedback. At sunride, we want to make sure Users are always enjoying great rides. Riders and Drivers may rate and review each other at the end of every ride. We receive information about ratings and reviews and, as we explain below, give Riders information about Drivers’ ratings and reviews and vice versa.

Address Book Contacts.If you permit sunride to access the address book on your device through the permission system used by your mobile platform, we may access and store names and contact information from your address book to facilitate invitations and social interactions that you initiate through our Platform and for other purposes described in this privacy policy or at the time of consent or collection.

Your Choices

Email Subscriptions. You can always unsubscribe from our commercial or promotional emails but we will still send you transactional and relational emails about your account use of the sunride Platform

Push Notifications. You can opt out of receiving push notifications through your device settings. Please note that opting out of receiving push notifications may impact your use of the Sunride Platform (such as receiving a notification that your ride has arrived).

Profile Information. While your name will always be shared with Drivers and fellow Sunride Line Riders, you can delete any additional information that you added to your Profile at any time if you don’t want Drivers and sunride Riders to see it. Riders will always be able to see Drivers’ names, rating, profile photos, and vehicle information.

Location Information. While you can prevent your device from sharing location information at any time through your Device’s operating system settings, Rider and Driver location is core to the sunride Platform and without it we can’t provide our services to you.

Facebook Friends. You can control whether to enable or disable the Facebook mutual friends feature through your profile settings.

Other

Data Security. We are committed to protecting the data of the sunride community. Even though we take reasonable precautions to protect your data, no security measures can be 100% secure, and we cannot guarantee the security of your data.

If we make any material changes, we will let you know through the sunride Platform, by email, or other communication.
