Purpose of the process

⦁ We collect and process personal data for the purpose of connecting passengers with drivers to help them move around cities more efficiently.
⦁ We display geolocation data and the phone number of passengers to drivers to enable efficient pick-up. Geolocation data is collected only when the YUGI app is activated. The collection of geolocation data stops after closing the YUGI app.
⦁ We may use geolocation data to resolve quality issues related to transportation services.
⦁ We use contact details to notify passengers of updates to the YUGI app.
⦁ We collect data of the routes taken by drivers and passengers to analyse the geographic coverage in order to provide recommendations to the drivers about most efficient routes.

Device permissions

⦁ Most mobile device platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without the device owner’s permission, and these platforms have different methods for how that permission can be obtained.
⦁ iOS devices notify users the first time the YUGI app requests permission to access certain types of data and gives users the option to grant or refuse permission.
⦁ Android devices notify users of the permissions that the YUGI app seeks before their first use of the app, and use of the app constitutes a grant of such permission.


⦁ After every trip, drivers and riders are able to rate each other on a scale from 1 to 5. An average of those ratings is associated with a user’s account and is displayed to other users for whom they provide or receive services. For example, rider ratings are available to drivers from whom they request transportation, and driver ratings are available to their riders.
⦁ This 2-way system holds everyone accountable for their behavior. Accountability helps create a respectful, safe environment for drivers and riders. Riders can see their average rating in the main menu of the YUGI app. Drivers can see their average rating after on the YUGI Driver app.
