The Scope

Scoot Cab (“Scoot Cab “we,” “our,” and/or “us”) values our users’ privacy who use our website, app, and related services. This Privacy Policy explains how Scoot Cab collects, uses, and shares the information of the users.

Information Collection

Upon signing up for the Scoot Cab app, you are asked to provide your name, email address, and phone number. If signing up with Facebook, access to basic details about your Facebook profile including your name, profile photo, gender, and Facebook friends can be asked.

Once you create your Scoot Cab profile, you can share further info to find mutual friends and interests. If you are a business account, you need to provide your business name, logo, and official address for your Scoot Cab business account profile.

The details about your payment mode are also required; however, a third party managing the payments for Scoot Cab, gets your card information only. To maintain your financial data security, Scoot Cab does not save full payment mode information on our web servers.

Since Scoot Cab is a ride-sharing and car-pooling app, we need to know where you are. When you open Scoot Cab on your mobile device, we get your location. We can also collect the exact location of your mobile device when you are using the app foreground or background.
