Carry Carpool Privacy Policy

Effective Date: January 1st, 2017

Carry Carpool, LLC., an Oklahoma Limited Liability Corporation d/b/a Carry (“Carry,” “our,” “us,” or “we“) respects your privacy and we are committed to protecting it through our compliance with this Privacy Policy. We created this Privacy Policy to let you know what information we collect and how we use it, as well as our practices regarding such information.

This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect through the following:

  • The website https://carrycarpool.com/ (the “Website”);
  • Our mobile service (the “Service”);
  • Our mobile application(s) we offer in connection with the Service (the “App”); and
  • Any email, text and other electronic communications between you and Carry.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to:

  • Information we collect offline, on any other apps or websites, including websites you may access through the App, or by any other means (such as through other websites or services we may offer); and
  • Information provided to or collected by our affiliates or any other third parties, which may have their own privacy policies, that may be accessed through the Website, Service, and App.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, you should not access the Website or use the Service or the App. By using the Service, the Website, the App or by submitting electronic communications to us, you agree to this privacy policy and consent to the practices prescribed in this Privacy Policy.  This Privacy Policy may change from time to time as described below in Changes to our Privacy Policy.  Your continued use of the Website, Service, and/or the App after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check this policy periodically for updates.

What information does Carry collect?

  • Personal Information. When we refer to “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we mean any information by which you may be personally identified or contacted, whether online or offline. When you use the Service or fill out any forms located on the Website or the App, we may collect certain Personal Information from you, such as your first and last name, address/location, email address, phone number, gender, credit card or other payment information. Additionally, if you ride as a driver (offer a ride), we will collect the following Personal Information from you as part of the application process: your first and last name, phone number, phone service carrier, social security number, bank account information, driving record and insurance policy. We may also collect additional information from you, as described as part of the application process. As a customer user or a driver, it is always your choice whether or not to provide Personal Information. If you choose not to provide requested Personal Information, you may not be able to participate in certain activities or use certain features of the Website, Service or the App.
  • Contacts Information: If you permit the App 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 social interactions through our Services and for other purposes described in this Privacy Policy or at the time of consent or collection.
  • Technical Information. We may also collect and use technical data and related information, such as information about your device, system and application software, peripherals and other data related to your interactions with the Website, Service, and App (“Technical Information”). We automatically collect Technical Information through the use of cookies and other data collection technologies. The information we collect from these technologies may include your web settings and preferences, website analytics information, device type, phone operating system and push ID. Carry does not consider this information to be Personal Information. Additionally, while we will not use this Technical Information in a way that associates the information with you, we may use and aggregate this information. Carry owns all Technical Information and may use it for any lawful purpose.
  • Location Information. We also collect information about your geographic location from you or your device, including your country, region, city, zip code, street address, time zone, latitude, longitude, and horizontal position representation information (“Location Information”).  Note, however, that opting out of the App’s collection of location information by selecting this option in your account or through your device’s settings will cause its location-based features to be disabled and that certain parts or features of the App and the Services may be unavailable.
  • Transaction Information: We collect transaction details related to your use of our Services, including the type of service requested, date and time the service was provided, amount charged, distance traveled, and other related transaction details. Additionally, if someone uses your promo or invitational code, we may associate your name with that person.
  • Social Information. We may also collect information about you from various third party services (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others) through their applicable APIs or otherwise (“Social Information”).
  • Tracking and Do Not Track Signals. We may use the Website, the App and the Service to collect information about your activities over time and across third-party websites, applications or other online services (“Tracking Information”). Your web browser, application platform or device may allow you to opt-out of our collection of Tracking Information by selecting a “do not track” (or similar) setting. However, we do not currently have processes to address those settings or other “do not track” requests, and consequently, cannot guarantee that we will honor such requests. If you do not want us to collect this information, do not use the Website, the App or the Service.
  • Order Information and Other Information you Voluntarily Disclose. Certain features of the Service and the App are designed to display information that you choose to provide to other users (such as messages between you and the driver offering the ride). Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose information by ordering products or otherwise providing such information through the Service or the App (including, for example, if you provide building or security codes to a driver), that information can be seen by those users or third parties to whom you send that information. We require drivers to maintain the confidentiality of such information and agree not to use it except as necessary to perform pick-up or drop off at requested location. However, we are not responsible for the security or privacy of any information you choose to submit in connection with these features.

Please keep in mind that if you disclose Personal Information in a public manner whether through collaborative postings, message boards or other public online forums, this information may be collected and used by others.  We do not monitor or collect information you disclose inside online public forums, nor do we accept any liability associated with your voluntary disclosure of same.  Please also keep in mind that the Website, Services, and/or the App may contain links to other websites or apps.  You are responsible for reviewing the privacy statements and policies of those other websites you choose to link to or from the Website, Services, and/or the App, so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and store your information.  We are not responsible for the privacy statements, policies or content of other websites or apps, including websites you link to or from the Website, Services, and/or the App.  Websites containing co-branding (referencing our name and a third party’s name) contain content delivered by the third party and not us.
