We may also use your personal information, biometric data and geo-location information to investigate and resolve incidents in connection with the Services.
  • Improving the Services. We use your personal information and geo-location information to perform research, testing, and analysis; develop new products, features, partnerships, and services; prevent, find, and resolve software or hardware issues; and monitor and improve our operations and processes, including security practices, algorithms, and other modeling.
  • Account Formation. We will use your personal information to complete the formation of your User account on the BaseBites platform

If you submit any information relating to other people in connection with the Services, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit us to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

When and How We Share Your Information With Third Parties.

We do not sell your personal information, biometric data or geo-location information. To deliver our Services, we may share your personal information, biometric data or geo-location information with other Users, third parties, and service providers in the following ways:

User Content. Your member profile and information that you post or share, such as photos, reviews, comments, suggestions, questions about a Gig, information about you or your experience, posts or comments on BaseBites’ blogs or community forums (collectively “User Content”), may be seen and shared with other Users of our Services or the public. You should therefore think carefully before deciding what information you share.

Information Shared Between Users. If you are a Sender or a Recipient, we provide some of your personal information, such as your first name, photo, and details about the pick-up and drop-off location of your Gig, to the Driver who offers on and/or performs your Gig, so that the Driver may contact you, facilitate pick-up and delivery, and so that you can track the progress and delivery of your Gig. If you are a Driver, while you are performing a Gig, we may share your geo-location information with both the Sender and the Recipient of the Gig so that the Sender and the Recipient can track the progress and delivery of the Gig. If you are a Sender or Recipient, we may also share your geo-location information with the Driver performing your Gig so that the Driver may determine the route to reach the pick-up and drop-off addresses and otherwise facilitate pick-up and drop-off of your Gig.

Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf. BaseBites uses third party vendors to assist in providing the Services to Users. We may provide these vendors with access to the following categories of personal information (as we have done for the past 12 months):

personal identifiers, such as your name, address, email address, date of birth, government identification number (such as social security number), drivers license information and scans of your driver’s license and/or other government ID photo, vehicle information, and auto insurance information

biometric information or identifiers such as a selfie, scan of your driver’s license and/or other government ID or photo, scan of your face, facial patterns, fingerprints, and voice or typing cadence (“biometric data”)

geo-location information

financial information such as bank routing numbers, tax information, and any other payment information you provide us

transaction information, such as Gig information, user statistics and feedback, and user transaction history

Internet or other electronic network activity information, such as IP address, type of browser, version of operating system, carrier and/or manufacturer, device identifiers, and mobile advertising identifiers

We may disclose your personal information, biometric data and geo-location information for the following business purposes: verify your identity, design and/or operate the Services, track our Services’ analytics, process payments, assist in anti-fraud and security measures, help us provide customer support to our Users and to enable BaseBites to provide many administrative services, including sending our Users special offers and targeted advertisements, hosting our account formation forms, performing technical and maintenance services, database management, web analytics, and other administrative services.

BaseBites and our vendors will retain any of your biometric data collected for only as long as is needed for the services you provide, or for three years after the date of your last interaction with us, whichever is earlier. At the completion of the retention period we destroy your biometric data by deleting all such data from our servers.

Google Analytics. BaseBites uses Google Analytics Display Advertising, including Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Cookie and/or Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to target and serve ads based on your past visits to our website, to gather information about the success of ad impressions and our Users’ interactions with ad impressions, measure and research the effectiveness of BaseBites’ features, offerings, advertisements, and email communications (by determining which emails you open and act upon) and other uses of ad services related to visits to our site or use of the mobile app. In conjunction with these features, your web browser automatically sends certain information to Google when you visit our site or use the app. To see how Google uses your information go to How Google uses data.

Users can opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising using Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.

Co-Branded Services. At times, some of our Services may be provided to you in association with third parties including certain customers, charities and sponsors (“Co-Branded Services”) and your use of these Co-Branded Services may require you or us to disclose certain of your information to the third party, for instance to confirm your package has been delivered. Any Co-Branded Services offered to you will specifically identify the third party. Any information that you disclose directly to a third party will be subject to that party’s posted privacy policy.

Sweepstakes, Contests and Promotions. From time to time BaseBites and/ or its parent company, direct and indirect subsidiaries of such parent company, and/or its affiliates may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions and special offers (each a “Promotion”). You agree that we may share certain of your information with our parent company, the direct and indirect subsidiaries of such parent company, and its affiliates in order to make any such Promotion available to you. Each Promotion will identify the third party and may contain specific rules and requirements, and request certain of your information, which will be disclosed to you at the time of sign-up. If you choose to take advantage of a Promotion, the information you provide may be disclosed to additional third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, any information that you disclose directly to a third party in connection with a Promotion will be subject to that third party’s posted privacy policy.

Legal Reasons. We may access, use, preserve, transfer and disclose your personal information, your biometric data, and your geo-location information to government, law enforcement officials and/or private parties as we reasonably determine to be necessary and appropriate to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, subpoenas, governmental requests or legal process; to protect the safety, rights, property or security of BaseBites, our Services or any third party, including you; to protect the safety of the public; to detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; and/or to prevent or stop activity we reasonably consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, an illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity.

Investors and Affiliates. We may share all of your information and data with current, future and prospective individual investors or with our parent, subsidiaries and affiliates for internal reasons, including, during the course of any due diligence process.

Business Transfers and Financings. We may disclose and transfer all of your information and data to a prospective or subsequent owner, co-owner or operator of the Services or applicable database or in connection with a financing, corporate merger, consolidation, restructuring, the sale of substantially all of our assets or other corporate change.
