Data Processor and Independent Controller in Common.

As the provider of, among other elements, a Taxi Dispatch solution, iCabbi processes and stores Personal Data in relation to living individuals, specifically Drivers and Passengers. To that extent, iCabbi acts a Data Processor and has obligations under the Data Protection legislation, which are reflected in this document.

In certain circumstances, iCabbi also will seek to act as a Data Controller, specifically for the purposes of developing and marketing fraud prevention products. iCabbi’s role in this context is as an Independent Controller in Common.

Due to the nature of the services provided by iCabbi there is a regular and active exchange of Personal Data between iCabbi Clients and its data subjects. In addition, iCabbi exchanges Personal Data with data processors on the data subjects’ behalf. This is consistent with iCabbi’s obligations under the terms of its contracts with its data processors. 

In accordance with EU Data Protection legislation, this data must be processed fairly and lawfully.  

iCabbi is committed to ensuring that all staff members have sufficient awareness of the legislation in order to be able to anticipate and identify a data protection issue, should one arise.

iCabbi processes the following categories of data:

  • Data created by our Customers, the transport providers, when they use iCabbi’s products.
  • Data that passengers provide to iCabbi when they make a booking with our Customers.
  • Data created when passengers use our services, such as location, usage and device data.
  • Data from other sources, such as iCabbi partners and third parties that use iCabbi APIs.

Data Retention and Deletion

iCabbi retains user profile and other data for as long as iCabbi users maintain their ICabbi account.

iCabbi retains transaction, location, usage and other data for 7 years in connection with regulatory, tax, insurance or other requirements in the places in which it operates. After that period has expired, iCabbi deletes or anonymises the relevant data in accordance with applicable laws.

iCabbi users may request deletion of their accounts and associated personal data at any time. When a user no longer wants to keep their account active, they are invited to email compliance@icabbi.com. When we receive such requests from a Passenger, we will contact the Taxi Company as they are the Data Controller. We will then delete the information that we don’t need to retain by law (and, for the information that we are required to retain, we will ensure the appropriate protection mechanisms remain).

Data Sharing and Disclosure

iCabbi does not sell or share users’ Personal Data to third parties for third party direct marketing purposes. We share data with our partners in line with best possible practice (including for legal reasons, in connection with claims or disputes, in response to safety concerns etc.)

iCabbi may also share user data other than as described in this policy if users are notified and consent to the sharing in advance.

In the course of its role as Data Processor, iCabbi engages third-party service providers, or third-party data processors, to process Personal Data on its behalf. In each case, a written contract is in place and / or arrangements documents with the sub-processor, outlining their obligations in relation to the Personal Data, the security measures that they must have in place to protect the data, the specific purpose or purposes for which they are engaged, and the understanding that they will only process the data in compliance with the EU Data Protection legislation.

We use multiple iCabbi service providers and business partners to provide our service. A full list of these can be found at: www.icabbi.com/subprocessor

These parties may include, for example:

  • Cloud storage providers
  • Payment processors
  • Marketing partners
  • Data analytics providers
  • Security partners
  • Professional service providers (e.g. privacy advisors, legal firms)
  • Fleet partners
  • Vehicle solution vendors or third party vehicle suppliers

We may also share our data with law enforcement bodies, government entities or other third parties as necessary to enforce our Terms of Service, user agreements, or other policies, to protect ICabbi’s rights or property or the rights, safety or property of others, or in the event of a claim or dispute relating to their use of our services.

This also includes sharing user data with others in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, consolidation or restructuring, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by or into another company.

General Data Protection Regulation (EU)

To the extent that iCabbi’s use of Personal Data qualifies as ‘business to customer’ processing, including the organisation’s communications to its staff members, the organisation is mindful of its obligations under the relevant EU legislation, namely the General Data Protection Regulation (2016) (“GDPR”).

  • Fair, Lawful and Transparent Processing
  • Purpose
  • Data Minimisation
  • Accuracy
  • Retention

International

Personal Data shall not be transferred to a country or territory outside the EEA unless that country or territory ensures an adequate level of protection for the rights and freedoms of data subjects in relation to the processing of Personal Data. Note that iCabbi’s subsidiary in the US manages and processes its’ Personal Data on a local server.
