What Personal Information Do We Collect and How Is It Collected?

Depending on who you are and why you are using our Services, we collect different types of information.

“Personal data” – or “personal information” as also used throughout this Privacy Notice – means any information about an individual from which that person may be identified. For example, it may include your name, telephone number, email address, payment information, and your IP address, device ID and location information. It does not include data from which the identity of an individual has been definitively removed along with any identifiers connected to such individual.

When you visit or use our Services, we collect personal information directly from you when you provide it to us, as well as indirectly through automated technologies such as cookies.  

Information Collected Directly

What personal information we collect will depend on whether you are a Rider, a Transporter or a Warehouse and/or Field Team Member, as explained below.

Account Registration Information

To register to use our Services, we request certain personal information from you:        

Payment Information

If you wish to use our Vehicles, or work for us as a Transporter, we will also need to process your payment information in order to get you started, add credits to your account, keep track of your credits, and in the case of Transporters, pay you. Payment processing is performed by third-party service providers, as explained here.

Contact Information

If you contact us for more information via our Services, or are a Transporter or a Warehouse and/or Field Team Member, we will collect additional contact information:

Communication Information

When you contact us via email, submit contact forms on our Services or otherwise, we also collect and process any additional information, which may include personal information, that you voluntarily submit to us in those emails, contact forms or other communications.

As explained in the Terms of Use, we may contact you by telephone or text messages (including by an automatic telephone dialing system) for marketing purposes, in which case we will process any information derived therefrom as set forth in the Privacy Notice. You may opt out at any time by replying ‘STOP’ to cancel or by contacting Wheels directly at privacypolicy@wheels.co. Standard message and data rates will apply.

Screening and Application Information

If you apply to be a Transporter or a Warehouse and/or Field Team Member, we will collect additional information via our third-party service providers.

For Transporters, you will be directed to the secure landing pages hosted by our third-party service providers, such as Unbounce or Fountain, where we will collect the following information:

Once we have screened you and approved you to join our team, you will be directed to complete a ‘Repositioning Partner Agreement’, after which you will be prompted to provide payment information via our payment processor, Stripe.

For Warehouse and/or Field Team Members, you will be directed to our third-party service provider’s (e.g., Fountain’s) secure landing page, which will collect the following information:

Once you have completed the process, we will review your information. If you are asked to join the Wheels Warehouse or  Field Team, you will be directed to the company that will be your employer of record. Your employer of record may collect additional information from you, subject to such company’s privacy notice available. For instance, in the United States we work with Target CW. Please note that your employer of record will be a data controller of the information they collect from you.

Information Collected Indirectly

Device and Usage Information

When you download, use or interact with the Services, even if you do not have an account, we, or authorized third parties engaged by us, may automatically collect information about your use of the Services via your device, some of which information is personal information. Device and Usage Information that we collect consists of:

Location Information

We, or authorized third parties, collect your GPS latitude/longitude coordinates, which we can convert into city, metro code, zip code, state, country, and area code. This is necessary for us to locate our Vehicles, in order to make them available to Riders and let our Transporters and Warehouse and/or Field Team Members know where to find them, as well as to take certain actions remotely to ensure that our Vehicles are in compliance with applicable laws (such as parking regulations and speed limits).

Cookies and Similar Technologies

We, or authorized third parties, collect some information, including Device and Usage Information, by automated means using cookies, and server logs for analytic purposes. For more information on our use of cookies and the data that they collect, see our Cookie Notice.

Analytics Information

With the Device and Usage Information collected by our third-party analytics services, such as Google Analytics, we generate and process aggregated information, such as statistical or demographic data. Aggregated Information may be derived from personal data, but is not considered personal data under the law if it does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may track the total number of visitors to our Services or the number of visitors to each page of our Services, and we may aggregate usage data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific feature of the Services and analyze this data for trends and statistics.

However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Information with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data, which will be processed in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

Information from Third Parties

In some instances, we process personal information from third parties, which consists of data from our partners, such as transactional data from providers of payment services or information regarding job applicants. If you are applying to be a Transporter or a Warehouse and/or Field Team Member, or for other jobs, we receive information that is collected by our third-party service providers, such as Fountain, Unbounce and/or Target CW, in connection with your application process, which will be processed in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

Why We Collect Your Personal Information and How We Use It

Our mission is to provide safe, efficient and high-quality Services, and we, or our authorized third-party service providers who assist us in providing the Services, process your personal information for this purpose. Personal information is generally processed in order to:

For users located in the EEA, please visit this Section for more information on our legal bases for processing.

Managing Your Preferences

If personal data about you changes, or if you no longer desire to use our Services, you may delete your account or contact us at privacypolicy@wheels.co. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.

Disclosure of Your Personal Information

We disclose your personal information to the third parties indicated below:

Third-Party Service Providers

Wheels discloses users’ information to our third party agents, contractors, or service providers who are hired to perform services on our behalf. These providers may operate or support certain functions of the Services, and in some cases collect information directly, for example in the Payment Processing and Job Application Processing sections contained in this Privacy Notice. Below is an illustrative list of functions for which we may use third-party service providers:

Business Transfers

As we continue to grow, we may purchase websites, applications, subsidiaries, other businesses or business units. Alternatively, we may sell businesses or business units, merge with other entities and/or sell assets or stock, in some cases as part of a reorganization or liquidation in bankruptcy. As part of these transactions, we may transfer your personal information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganization in which Wheels participates, or to a purchaser or acquirer of all or a portion of Wheels’ assets, bankruptcy included.

Anonymized Information

We share aggregated, automatically-collected or otherwise non-personal information with third parties for various purposes, including (i) compliance with reporting obligations; (ii) for business or marketing purposes; (iii) to assist us and other parties in understanding our users’ interests, habits and usage patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions and/or functionality available through the Services. We do not share personal information about you in this case.

Legal Obligations and Security

In addition, Wheels will preserve or disclose your personal information in limited circumstances (other than as set forth in this Privacy Notice), including: (i) with your consent; (ii) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena, warrant or other judicial or administrative order (as further explained below); (iii) to protect the safety of any person; to protect the safety or security of our Services or to prevent spam, abuse, or other malicious activity of actors with respect to the Services; or (iv) to protect our rights or property or the rights or property of those who use the Services.

If we are required to disclose personal information by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena, warrant or other judicial or administrative order, our policy is to respond to requests that are properly issued by law enforcement within the United States or via mutual legal assistance mechanism (such as a treaty). Under such circumstances, we may at our discretion attempt to provide you with prior notice that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. However, government requests may include a court-granted non-disclosure order, which prohibits us from giving notice to the affected individual.

Note that if we receive information that provides us with a good faith belief that there is an exigent emergency involving the danger of death or serious physical injury to a person, we may provide information to law enforcement trying to prevent or mitigate the danger (if we have it), to be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Payment Processing

We do not directly collect your payment information and we do not store your payment information. We use Stripe, a third-party, PCI-compliant, payment processor, which collects payment information on our behalf in order to complete transactions. While our administrators are able to view and track actual transactions via the Stripe customer portal, with the exception of the last 4 digits of your credit card, credit card type, zip code and expiration date, we do not have access to or process your credit card information. Please review Stripe’s privacy policy to learn more about how it collects, processes and protects your personal information.

Job Application Processing

For individuals who are applying to be a Transporter or Warehouse and/or Field Team Member, we do not directly handle job applicant information and hiring, but store some information as described here in this Privacy Notice. We use third-party service providers who provide hiring automation software or landing pages and contact forms, in order to manage job applicants.

“Do Not Track”

Wheels responds to Do Not Track (“DNT”) browser signals. For more information on DNT settings generally, please visit https://allaboutdnt.com.

How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Information?

General Retention Periods

We use the following criteria to determine our retention periods: the amount, nature and sensitivity of your information, the reasons for which we collect and process your personal data, the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide you with access to our Services, and applicable legal requirements. We will retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). Additionally, we cannot delete information when it is needed for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims (also known as a “litigation hold”). In this case, the information must be retained as long as needed for exercising respective potential legal claims.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

If you have questions about, or need further information concerning, our data retention periods, please send an email at privacypolicy@wheels.co.

Time Frame of Deletion

If personal data can no longer be retained or is no longer necessary, it will be erased or anonymized without undue delay, generally within one month, unless exceptions apply.

Anonymization

In some instances, we may choose to anonymize your personal data instead of deleting it, for statistical use, for instance. When we choose to anonymize, we make sure that there is no way that the personal data can be linked back to you or any specific user.

Protecting Your Personal Data

No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however we take steps that are reasonably necessary to securely provide our Services. We have put in place reasonably appropriate security measures designed to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. We limit access to personal data only to those employees, agents, contractors and the third parties who have a business need-to-know.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. If required, we will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach. We also require those parties to whom we transfer your personal information to provide acceptable standards of security.

International Transfers

We are located in the United States, and the personal information that we collect is stored on servers located in the United States. This means that your personal information will be collected, processed and stored in the United States, which may have data protection laws that are different from (and sometimes less protective than) the laws of your country or region, such as the GDPR.

By sending us personal information, you agree and consent to the processing of your personal information in the United States, which may not offer an equivalent level of protection to that required in other countries (particularly the European Union), and to the processing of that information by us on servers located in the United States, as described in this Privacy Notice.

We have implemented safeguards designed to ensure that the personal information we process remains protected in accordance with this Privacy Notice, including when processed internationally or by our third-party service providers and partners. The safeguards we may take in our discretion include, for instance, entering into binding agreements in connection with any onward transfers of Personal Information. We may implement other mechanisms and take similar appropriate safeguards with our third-party service providers and partners. Further details can be provided upon request.

Changes to this Privacy Notice

Wheels may update this Privacy Notice (and the Cookie Notice) from time to time, at its sole discretion. If so, we will post an updated Privacy Notice within the Services along with a change notice. Changes, modifications, additions, or deletions will be effective immediately on their posting to the Services. If we make significant changes, we may also send registered users a notice that this Privacy Notice has been changed. We encourage you to review this Privacy Notice regularly for any changes. Your continued use of the Services and/or your continued provision of personal information to us after the posting of such notice will be subject to the terms of the then-current Privacy Notice. If you continue to use the Services you will be deemed to have accepted the change.

Notice to Nevada Consumers

We do not sell your personal information within the scope of, and according to the defined meaning of, a “sale” under NRS 603A.

Additional Information for Users in the European Economic Area

Categories of Recipients of Personal Data

The categories of recipients of personal data with whom we may share your personal data are listed in Disclosure of Your Personal Information above.

Purpose of the Processing and Legal Bases

Wheels uses your personal information for a number of different purposes, as explained here. Some are essential for us to provide the Services you use or to fulfill our legal obligations, some help us run the Services efficiently and effectively and some enable us to provide you with more relevant and personalized offers and information. In all cases we must have a reason and a legal ground for processing your personal information. Some of the most common legal grounds we rely on are briefly explained below.

Performance of a Contract

We may process your personal data for the purposes of a contract to which you are a party, in other words your ability to use the Services. For instance, if you want to find, unlock and ride a Vehicle, we need to process your Account Registration Information, Location Information and Payment Information in order to enable you to do so.

Legitimate Interests

We may process personal data where it is necessary for our legitimate business interests, but only to the extent that they are not outweighed by your own interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. We generally rely on legitimate interests to provide and maintain Services that work well and securely, comply with applicable laws, carry out fraud prevention, and generally improve the Services. When we rely on this legal basis, if required, we’ll carry out a legitimate interest assessment to ensure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under applicable data protection laws.

Consent

Wheels may rely on consent where it is required, such as with respect to certain Device and Usage Information collected via cookies and similar technologies (other than strictly necessary cookies), or when we’re asking you to confirm your marketing preferences. When we rely on consent, you’ll be asked to confirm that you give your permission to Wheels to process your personal information. Details of the processing, such as why Wheels would like to process your data, how it will be used and if your personal information will be shared, will be provided at the time of asking you for your consent.

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time if you no longer wish to have Wheels process your personal data.

Legal Obligation

Wheels will on occasion be under a legal obligation to obtain and disclose your personal data. Where possible, we will notify you when processing your data due to a legal obligation, however this may not always be possible. For instance, Wheels may need to provide your data in order to prevent criminal activity or help to detect criminal activity, in which case we may share information with law enforcement. This is done in a safe and secure manner. It’s essential that Wheels complies with its legal, regulatory and contractual requirements, so if you object to this processing, Wheels will not be able to provide its Services to you.

The following table illustrates in more detail how the above legal bases for processing may apply to our primary purposes for processing different types of personal data:

Your Rights and Choices Under GDPR

If the GDPR applies to you because you are in the EEA, you have certain rights in relation to your personal data:

These rights are subject to certain rules around when you can exercise them. If are located in the EEA and wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us (see How to Contact Us About Privacy).

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights) unless your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request under those circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity. This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

We will respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated as required by law.

In addition, if you no longer wish to receive our marketing/promotional information, we remind you that you may withdraw your consent to direct marketing at any time directly from the unsubscribe link included in each electronic marketing message we send to you. If you do so, we will promptly update our databases, and will take all reasonable steps to meet your request at the earliest possible opportunity, but we may continue to contact you to the extent necessary for the purposes of providing our Services.

Finally, you have the right to make a complaint at any time to the supervisory authority for data protection issues in your country of residence. We would, however, appreciate the chance to address your concerns before you approach the supervisory authority, so please contact us directly first.

If you are a user in the EEA, you may also contact our representative in the European Union:

Your Rights and Choices Under CCPA

The CCPA provides Consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information, provided that we are able to verify their identities as explained here. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights

You have the right to request that Wheels disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive your request and verify your identity (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will disclose to you:

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that Wheels delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive your request and verify your identity (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) for certain reasons as permitted and set forth in the CCPA. These reasons include (just to name a few):

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable Consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable Consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

An authorized agent is a natural person or a business entity registered with the Secretary of State that a Consumer has authorized to act on his or her behalf. When a Consumer uses an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete, Wheels may require that the Consumer provide the authorized agent written permission to do so and verify their own identity directly with Wheels, unless the Consumer has provided the authorized agent with a valid power of attorney. Wheels may deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by the Consumer to act on his or her behalf.

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable Consumer request to us by either:

You may only make a verifiable Consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable Consumer request must:

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

Making a verifiable Consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. However, we do consider requests made through your password protected account as a reasonable step toward verification when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account. Please note that the methods for verification are set forth in the CCPA, which also requires us to consider a number of factors, such as type, sensitivity and value of the personal information or risk of harm posed by unauthorized access or deletion, on a case-by-case basis.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable Consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable Consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of the verifiable Consumer’s request. If applicable, our response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable Consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you in a manner prohibited by the CCPA because you exercise your CCPA rights.   Please note that to use our Services, we do require the collection of your personal information, for example to sign up or in order to complete a paid transaction. While you may request to delete your personal information under CCPA, such deletions may affect Wheels’ ability to offer the Services.
