Where you choose to do this, we will receive certain profile data about you from your Facebook provider. The profile data we receive may vary depending on the permissions you set on your Facebook account, but will often include your name, email address, friends list, profile picture, as well as other data you choose to make public.

We cannot guarantee the safety and privacy of the data you provide to any third parties. Any data collected by third parties is not covered by this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of any third parties, including other websites, services, or apps that may be linked to or from our Site and App. You should review the policies of such third parties and contact them directly to respond to your questions.


We keep your data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless otherwise required by law.

We will only keep or retain your data in our database for as long as it is necessary to perform our services, or for as long as you have an active account with us – unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting, or other legal requirements).

No purpose in this Privacy Policy will require us to keep your data past the termination of the user’s account. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your data, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your data has been or legal purpose in backup archives), then we will securely store your data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.


We aim to protect your data through a system of organizational and technical security measures.

We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal data we process. We do not disclose your data unless described under this Privacy Policy. Your payment method data is not stored on our database but handled by our payment processors with adequate safeguards. However, you are aware that no form of security via the internet is 100% secure. Although we will do our best to protect your data, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not have access. You should also ensure you alone have access to your login credentials.


Your data is processed from our location in Australia but may be transferred to third-party service providers in different locations.

Ezi Ride provides the Site and App from our base of operation in Australia. If you transfer your data to us from other locations, we will protect your data in accordance with the GDPR law. Likewise, we hire the services of third-party services providers – such as our payment processors – who may process your data from other locations with privacy laws that may not be as strict as that of your location. However, when you transfer your data to us, we will protect it as described under this Privacy Policy. And we only use third parties who are their industry giants.


We do not knowingly collect data from or market to children under 18 years of age.

We do not knowingly solicit personal data from or market to children under 18 years of age. By using our Site or App, you represent that you are at least 18 or that you are the parent or guardian of such a minor and consent to such minor dependent’s use of our Site or App. If we learn that personal data from users less than 18 years of age has been collected, we will deactivate the account and take reasonable measures to promptly delete such data from our records. If you become aware of any data we have collected from children under age 18, please contact us at


You have the right to request to rectify your submitted personal data and request the deletion of certain data or your account to the extent permitted by applicable law. If you are using our Site and App from Australia, you have additional rights.

You have certain rights in relation to your use of our Site and App. You have the right to request to correct, rectify, or edit the personal data you have previously submitted to us. You also have the right to request the deletion of your data or your user account.

You may exercise these rights by going through your account profile area. Upon your request to terminate your account, we will deactivate or delete your account and data from our active databases. However, some data may be retained in our files to prevent fraud, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our Terms and Conditions and/or comply with legal requirements.

Here is the list of privacy rights every app user using Ezi Ride is subjected to pursue:

  • Right of access: You have the right to request a copy of the personal data we hold about you. You may request by sending us a message at
  • Right to object to processing, delete, remove, or stop using personal data: This right is also known as the “right to be forgotten.” This right is limited in that it is not absolute to request the deletion of certain personal data. For example, where applicable law requires us to keep records of transactions, we will have no option but to comply.
  • Right to limit processing: It may sometimes be possible to restrict the processing of your data so that it can solely be used for specific purposes (e.g., to exercise legal rights or for legal claims). In such circumstances, we will not use your data in other ways while processing is restricted. You can ask us to restrict the use of your data if: (i) it is inaccurate; (ii) it has been unlawfully used, but you do not want us to delete it; (iii) it is not relevant anymore, but you want us to keep it for use in legal claims; and (iv) you have already asked us to stop using it, but you are waiting for us to tell you if we are allowed to keep using it.
  • Right to object to profiling: The GDPR confers to you the right to object to the processing of certain data about you. This effectively allows you to ask us to stop processing certain personal data. For example, you may object to our use of your email address for marketing and push notifications via the App. You may opt out of marketing via newsletters by using the instructions for unsubscribing in any email sent to you by Ezi Ride and switching off push notifications via your device settings.
  • Right to portability: The right to data portability allows you to obtain and reuse the data you have with us for your own purposes across different services/apps. It allows you to move, copy, or transfer your data easily from our database to another website or app safely and securely, without affecting its usability.
  • Right to reporting: You have the right to report us to any privacy authority in your location if you believe we are unlawfully processing your data. You can find their contact details here:

If we are relying on your consent to process your data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Please note, however, that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before its withdrawal.


Yes, we will update this Privacy Policy as necessary to stay compliant with relevant laws.

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. The updated version will be indicated by a “Last Updated” date, and the updated version will be effective as soon as it is accessible. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy, we may notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes or by directly sending you a notification (via your account-associated email address or our Site or App interface).
