Last updated: 23 August 2019

 

INTRODUCTION

At Dryvar Foods, we are committed to protecting our customers' personal information. In the course of providing products and services, we need to collect and maintain certain personal information. This Privacy Policy answers some of your questions about what personal information we collect and why, what we do with it, and how we protect it. 

 

 

This policy specifically applies to:

 

  • Drivers: users who provide transportation individually or through partner transportation companies
  • Delivery Recipients: users who request deliveries of food or other items
  • Delivery Partners: users who provide delivery services

 

The practices described in this policy are subject to applicable laws in the places in which we operate. This means that we only engage in the practices described in this policy in a particular country or region if permitted under the laws of those places. Please contact us if you have questions on our practices in your country or region.

 

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Dryvar Foods collects:         

  • Information that you provide to Dryvar Foods, such as when you create your Dryvar Foods account.
  • Information created when you use our services, such as location, usage and device information.
  • Information from other sources, such as Dryvar Foods partners and third parties that use Dryvar Foods APIs.

   

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS COLLECTED BY OR ON BEHALF OF DRYVAR FOODS:

Information you provide

This may include:

  • User profile: We collect information when you create or update your Dryvar Foods account. This may include your name, email, phone number, login name and password, address, payment or banking information (including related payment verification information), driver’s license or passport if required by law, birth date, photo and signature. This also includes vehicle or insurance information of drivers. This also includes the preferences and settings that you enable for your Dryvar Foods account.
  • Background check information: We may collect background check information if you sign up to use Dryvar Foods services as a driver or delivery partner. This may include information such as your driver history or criminal record (where permitted by law). This information may be collected by a vendor on Dryvar Foods behalf.
  • User content: We may collect information that you submit when you contact Dryvar Foods customer support, provide ratings or compliments for other users, or otherwise contact Dryvar Foods.

 

Information created when you use our services

This may include:

  • Location Information

Depending on the Dryvar Foods services that you use, and your app settings or device permissions, we may collect your precise or approximate location information as determined through data such as GPS, IP address and WiFi.

    • If you are a driver or delivery partner, Dryvar Foods collects location information when the Dryvar Foods app is running in the foreground (app open and on-screen) or background (app open but not on screen) of your device.
    • Delivery recipients may use the Dryvar Foods app without enabling Dryvar Foods to collect their location information. However, this may affect the functionality available on your Dryvar Foods app. For example, if you do not enable Dryvar Foods to collect your location information, you will have to manually enter your pickup address. In addition, location information will be collected from the driver during your trip and linked to your account, even if you have not enabled Dryvar Foods to collect your location information.
  • Transaction Information

We collect transaction details related to your use of our services, including the type of services you requested or provided, your order details, delivery information, date and time the service was provided, amount charged, distance travelled, and payment method. Additionally, if someone uses your promotion code, we may associate your name with that person.

  • Usage information

We collect information about how you interact with our services. This includes information such as access dates and times, app features or pages viewed, app crashes and other system activity, type of browser, and third-party sites or service you were using before interacting with our services. In some cases, we collect this information through cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies that create and maintain unique identifiers.

  • Device Information

We may collect information about the devices you use to access our services, including the hardware models, device IP address, operating systems and versions, software, file names and versions, preferred languages, unique device identifiers, advertising identifiers, serial numbers, device motion information, and mobile network information.

  • Communications data

We enable users to communicate with each other and Dryvar Foods through the Dryvar Foods apps, websites, and other services. For example, we enable drivers, and delivery partners and recipients, to call or text each other. To provide this service, Dryvar Foods receives some information regarding the calls or texts, including the date and time of the call/text, and the content of the communications. Dryvar Foods may also use this information for customer support services (including to resolve disputes between users), for safety and security purposes, to improve our products and services and for analytics.

 

 

Information from other sources

These may include:

  • User feedback, such as ratings or compliments.
  • Users providing your information in connection with referral programs.
  • Users requesting services for or on your behalf.
  • Users or others providing information in connection with claims or disputes.
  • Dryvar Foods business partners through which you create or access your Dryvar Foods account, such as payment providers, social media services, on-demand music services, or apps or websites who use Dryvar Food’s APIs or whose API Dryvar Foods uses.
  • Insurance providers (if you are a driver or delivery partner).
  • Financial services providers (if you are a driver or delivery partner).
  • Publicly available sources.
  • Marketing service providers.

Dryvar Foods may combine the information collected from these sources with other information in its possession.

  • Using user ratings to encourage improvement by affected users, and as grounds for deactivating users with ratings below a certain minimum as may be required in their region. Calculation and deactivation may be done through an automated decision making process.

Information Retention And Deletion

Dryvar Foods retains user profile and other information for as long as you maintain your Dryvar Foods account.

Dryvar Foods retains transaction, location, usage and other information for 5 years in connection with regulatory, tax, insurance or other requirements in the places in which it operates. Dryvar Foods thereafter deletes or anonymizes such information in accordance with applicable laws.

Users may request deletion of their accounts at any time. Following such request, Dryvar Foods deletes the information that it is not required to retain, and restricts access to or use of any information it is required to retain.

Dryvar Foods may also retain certain information if necessary for its legitimate business interests, such as fraud prevention and enhancing users' safety and security. For example, if Dryvar Foods shuts down a user's account because of unsafe behaviour or security incidents, Dryvar Foods may retain certain information about that account to prevent that user from opening a new Dryvar Foods account in the future.
