2. The reason for the processing

Instant messages sent through the Mobi app are processed for the purposes of providing service and customer support (including resolving disputes between drivers and riders), ensuring the security of our products and services, and conducting research.

• We get you to your destination: We provide ride-hailing drivers with the passenger's geolocation and phone number to facilitate efficient pick-up and drop-off, and to make the journey and route transparent. This information is only collected when the Mobi app is active. The collection of geolocation data ceases when the Mobi app is closed.

• We ensure that your trip goes smoothly:We use geolocation data to ensure that you reach your destination and to resolve service quality issues.• We ensure the application is optimal: We use contact information to inform passengers and riders of updates to the Mobi app so that you can continue to use our services. In addition, we collect limited information from the device you use to connect to our internet, mobile, and telephone services in order to safeguard your account via authentication and verification checks. • We ensure that your ride is the quickest, most affordable, and most convenient possible: We collect data on the routes our passengers and riders take in order to assess geographic coverage. This enables us to improve recommendations to drivers regarding the most efficient routes and to ensure that our rental vehicles, such as our scooters, are located in the most convenient locations for customers.

• We collect your payment: We collect payment information to process ride-hailing passenger payments on behalf of drivers. In addition, we process payments for our own rental vehicles, including our cars and scooters.

• We maintain and promote standards: We collect data about journey statuses, time, and passenger ratings from driver feedback in order to encourage user safety, promote compliance with our terms and conditions, and guarantee that everyone receives a quality and enjoyable service. Customer support information and correspondence is compiled for the purposes of gathering feedback, resolving disputes, and addressing service quality issues.

3. Legal Basis
If we have a valid reason, we are permitted to use personal data in the manners described above. We always ensure we have a valid reason before using your data for any purpose.

•Personal information is typically processed in order to provide you with the contracted Mobi app services. This means that in order to provide you with the service we promised and to comply with our terms and conditions, we will process your personal information. In most other instances, we process your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests. Unless overridden by other interests, legitimate interests include our commercial interests in providing innovative, personalised, safe, and profitable service to our passengers and partners. In addition to investigating and detecting fraudulent payments and other malicious activities, maintaining the security of our network and systems, and responding to suspected or actual criminal acts, our legitimate interests include the following.We may occasionally rely on alternative legal bases when:

• it is necessary to comply with a legal obligation, such as for processing data when the law requires it, including, for example, if there is a valid legal request to disclose personal information to a third party such as a Court or regulatory authority;

• to protect your vital interests, or those of others, such as in the event of an emergency or imminent threat to life; or

• you have given us explicit consent.If you choose not to provide us with personal information, it may prevent us from fulfilling the terms of our agreement with you or from complying with the law. It may also indicate that we are unable to manage your account. For instance, we collect and process the personal data you submit when installing and using the Mobi app; if you refuse to share your geolocation data via the App, we cannot direct a driver to your location for a pick-up, nor can we show you one of our own vehicles nearby that is available for rental. In other situations, we will be unable to fulfil our obligations to you, such as if you refuse to undergo an identity verification check to ensure the integrity of your account, your account may be suspended or blocked to prevent fraud.

4. Recipients

We only collaborate with dependable partners and authorities. Only when there is a valid reason do we share. We restrict sharing to only what is necessary. We do not sell your personally identifiable information.

• The passenger's personal information is only disclosed to the ride-hailing drivers when the passenger requests a ride through the Mobi app; in this case, the driver will see the passenger's name, phone number (in some countries, the number is masked), and geolocation data. • Following the completion of a ride-hailing service, the passenger's name and phone number (in some countries, the number is obscured) will be visible to the driver for 24-48 hours. This is necessary for drivers to resolve any issues with the passenger, such as returning a valuable item that may have been left in the vehicle.

• Passenger feedback regarding the quality of the ride-hailing service is kept confidential. Your rating is only visible to you and Mobi. • Depending on the passenger's location, personal information may be disclosed to Mobi group companies and partners (local subsidiaries, representatives, affiliates, agents etc). The same stringent conditions outlined in this privacy notice will apply to the processing of personal information by Mobi group companies and partners.

• In certain instances, we are required by law to share information with external parties. For instance, in response to a court order or in cooperation with a data protection supervisory authority during the handling of complaints or investigations. We may also respond to requests from law enforcement agencies if we have a good-faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction or furthers a task in the public interest, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. In all circumstances, we will ensure that we have a legal basis for sharing the information and document our decision.

5. Protection and access

Only authorized employees of Mobishare Solutions companies and partners have access to personal data for the purpose of resolving issues related to the use of the services (including disputes regarding transportation services).

• Data regarding journey history and usage of transportation services will be stored for three years before being anonymized.Please note that uninstalling the Mobi app from your device does not delete your personal information.

Please click the "Unsubscribe" link in the footer of one of our emails if you no longer wish to receive direct marketing messages.

9. Automated determination
For the purposes of issuing warnings and suspending ride-hailing services, we utilize automated decision-making. Using automated decision-making is less prone to error, more productive, and safer than employing people. When determining the need for a warning or suspension, information about your use of transportation services (data about journey status including cancellations and no-shows and data about your behavior as assessed by drivers) is considered.

The suspension of ride hailing will remain in effect for six months, after which access to the service will be restored.

Account deletion can only be done by contacting customer care. To do so, send an email to customercare@mobishare.org from the email you used to create the Mobi account. You will be requested for certain verification information, after which your account will be deregistered. Should you wish to re-open your account, you may do so within a three month grace period, after which it will be impossible to retrieve your registration information because it will have been permanently deleted. You will then need to re-register with Mobi to use our services. Account deletion is done within two business days. This will enable us settle any pending settlement like unpaid trip or bills that user might be having with us.
