How we use personal data

• To enhance the safety and security of our users and services
• For customer support
• For research and development
• To enable communications between users
• To send marketing and non-marketing communications to users
• In connection with legal proceedings
Golag does not sell or share user personal data with third parties for their direct marketing, except with users’ consent.

Golag uses the data it collects for purposes including:

1- Providing services and features. Golag uses the data we collect to provide, personalize, maintain, and improve our products and services.

This includes using the data to:
• Create and update users’ accounts.

• Enable transportation, deliveries, and other services.
• Offer, process, or facilitate payments for our services.
• Offer, obtain, provide, or facilitate insurance, vehicle, invoicing, or financing solutions in connection with our services.
• Track and share the progress of rides or deliveries.
• Enable features that allow users to share information with other people, such as when riders submit a compliment about a driver, when delivery recipients provide feedback for a restaurant or delivery person, refer a friend to Golag, split fares, or share ETA and location with their contacts.
• Enable features to personalize users’ Golag accounts, such as creating bookmarks for favorite places, and to enable quick access to previous destinations. We may, for example, present an Golag Eats user with personalized restaurant or food recommendations based on their prior orders. Please see the section of this notice titled “Choice and transparency” to learn how to object to this use of personal data.
• Enable Accessibility features that make it easier for users with disabilities to use our services, such as those that enable deaf or hard-of-hearing drivers to alert their riders of their disabilities, allow only text messages from riders, and enable receipt of flashing trip request notifications instead of sound notifications on their mobile device.
• Perform internal operations necessary to provide our services, including to troubleshoot software bugs and operational problems; to conduct data analysis, testing, and research; and to monitor and analyze usage and activity trends.

2- Safety and security. We use personal data to help maintain the safety, security, and integrity of our services and users. This includes:
• Screening riders, drivers, and delivery persons before enabling their use of our services and at subsequent intervals, including through reviews of background checks, where permitted by law, to help prevent use of our services by unsafe drivers and/or riders.
• Using data from drivers’ or delivery persons’ devices to help identify unsafe driving behavior such as speeding or harsh braking and acceleration, and to inform them of safer driving practices. We also use data from delivery persons’ devices to verify the type of vehicles they used to provide deliveries.
• Using device, location, profile, usage, and other data to prevent, detect, and combat fraud or unsafe activities.
• Using user ratings and feedback to encourage compliance with our Community Guidelines and as grounds for deactivating drivers and delivery persons with low ratings or who otherwise violated such guidelines in certain countries.

• Direct questions to the appropriate customer support person
• Investigate and address user concerns

This helps us to improve and enhance the safety and security of our services, improve our ability to prevent the use of our services for illegal or improper purposes, develop new features and products, and facilitate insurance and finance solutions in connection with our services.

5- Enabling communications between users. For example, a driver may message or call a rider to confirm a pickup location, a rider may contact a driver to retrieve a lost item, or a restaurant or delivery persons may call a delivery recipient with information about their order.

6- Marketing. Golag may use the data we collect to market our services to our users. This includes sending users communications about Golag services, features, promotions, sweepstakes, studies, surveys, news, updates, and events.7- Non-marketing communications. Golag may use the data we collect to generate and provide users with receipts; inform them of changes to our terms, services, or policies; or send other communications that aren’t for the purpose of marketing the services or products of Golag or its partners.
7.- Legal proceedings and requirements. We may use the personal data we collect to investigate or address claims or disputes relating to use of Golag’s services, or as otherwise allowed by applicable law, or as requested by regulators, government entities, and official inquiries.

• Deactivating users who are identified as having engaged in fraud or activities that may otherwise harm Golag, its users, and others. In some cases, such as when a user is determined to be abusing Golag’s referral program, such behavior may result in automatic deactivation.
• Using driver location information, and communications between riders and drivers, to identify cancellation fees earned or induced through fraud. For example, if we determine by using such information that a driver is delaying a rider pickup in order to induce a cancellation, we will not charge the rider a cancellation fee and will adjust the amounts paid to the driver to omit such a fee. To object to such adjustment, please contact Golag customer support.
