Users may request deletion of their accounts at any time. dubci may retain user data after a deletion request due to legal or regulatory requirements or for the reasons stated in this policy.
dubci retains user data for as long as necessary for the purposes described above. This means that we retain different categories of data for different periods of time depending on the category of user to whom the data relates, the type of data, and the purposes for which we collected the data.
Users may request deletion of their account at any time through the Settings > Privacy menus in the dubci app, or through dubci’s website (riders and delivery recipients here; dubci leaders and delivery persons here).
Following an account deletion request, dubci deletes the user’s account and data, unless they must be retained due to legal or regulatory requirements, for purposes of safety, security, and fraud prevention, or because of an issue relating to the user’s account such as an outstanding credit or an unresolved claim or dispute. Because we are subject to legal and regulatory requirements relating to dubci leaders and delivery persons, this generally means that we retain their account and data for a minimum of 7 years after a deletion request. For riders and delivery recipients, their data is generally deleted within 90 days of a deletion request, except where retention is necessary for the above reasons.
F. Grounds for processing
We only collect and use personal data where we have lawful grounds to do so. These include processing user personal data to provide requested services and features, for purposes of dubci’s legitimate interests or those of other parties, to fulfill our legal obligations, or based on consent.
We collect and use personal data only where we have one or more lawful grounds for doing so. Such grounds may vary depending on where our users are located, but generally include processing personal data:

In order to provide our services, we must collect and use certain personal data. This includes:
B- For purposes of the legitimate interests of dubci or other parties
This includes using personal data to maintain and enhance our users’ safety and security. For example, we use personal data to prevent use of our services by users who have engaged in inappropriate or dangerous behavior, such as by retaining data of banned users to prevent their use of dubci’s apps. We also use usage data to prevent matching of riders and dubci leaders for whom there is higher risk of conflict (for instance, because they have been the subject of prior complaints from other users).
This also includes purposes such as combating fraud; improving our services, direct marketing, research, and development; and enforcing dubci’s Terms of Service.
In addition, it includes using personal data to the extent necessary for the interests of other people or the general public, such as in connection with legal or insurance claims, and to protect the rights and safety of others.
C- To fulfill dubci’s legal obligations
For example, dubci is subject to laws and regulations in many cities and countries that require it to collect and retain data about our users’ trips and deliveries, and to provide copies of such data to the government or other authorities. We collect and use personal data to comply with such laws.
dubci may also share data with law enforcement regarding criminal acts or threats to public safety, or requests by third parties pursuant to legal processes. dubci may also share information with public health authorities where required or permitted by law. For more information about such sharing, please Contact Us.
D- With consent
dubci may collect and use personal data based on the user’s consent. For example, we may collect personal data through voluntary surveys. Responses to such surveys are collected on the basis of consent and will be deleted once no longer necessary for the purposes collected.
A user who has provided consent to a collection or use of their personal data can revoke it at any time. However, the user will not be able to use any service or feature that requires collection or use of that personal data.
IV. Choice and transparency
dubci enables users to access and control the data that dubci collects, including through:
dubci also enables users to request access to or copies of their data, changes or updates to their accounts, deletion of their accounts, or that dubci restrict its processing of user personal data.
A- Privacy settings
Settings menus in the dubci app for riders give them the ability to set or update their location-sharing preferences and their preferences for receiving mobile notifications from dubci. Information about these settings, how to set or change these settings, and the effect of turning off these settings is described below.
dubci uses riders’ device location services to make it easier to get a ride whenever they need one. Location data helps improve our services, including pickups, navigation, and customer support.
Riders may enable or disallow dubci to collect location data from their mobile devices through the Settings > Privacy menus in the dubci app. Riders and delivery recipients can enable or disallow such collections through the settings on their mobile device.
Riders who have enabled dubci to collect location data from their mobile device may also enable dubci to share their location with their driver from the time the ride is requested to the start of the trip. This can help improve pickups for both dubci leaders and riders, particularly in crowded areas.
Riders may enable or disable this feature through the Settings > Privacy menus in the dubci app.
Riders who have enabled dubci to collect location data from their mobile device may also enable the Emergency Data Sharing feature that shares data with emergency police, fire, and ambulance services. Such data includes approximate location at the time the emergency call was placed; the car’s make, model, color, and license plate information; the rider’s name and phone number; pickup and dropoff locations; and the driver’s name.
Riders may enable or disable this feature through the Settings > Privacy menus or the Safety Center in the dubci app.
dubci provides users with trip status notifications and updates related to activity on their account. These notifications are a necessary part of using the dubci app and cannot be disabled. However, users may choose the method by which they receive these notifications through the Settings > Privacy menus in the dubci app.
Users may enable dubci to send push notifications about discounts and news from dubci. Push notifications may be enabled or disabled through the Settings > Privacy menus in the dubci app.
Delivery recipients who have opted in to communications from certified partners may stop sharing their data with each certified partner in their dubci deal account settings.
B- Device permissions
Most mobile device platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without the device owner’s permission, and these platforms have different methods for how that permission can be obtained. iOS devices notify users the first time the dubci app requests permission to access certain types of data and gives users the option to grant or refuse permission. Android devices notify users of the permissions that the dubci app seeks before their first use of the app, and use of the app constitutes a grant of such permission.
C- Ratings look-up
After every trip, dubci leaders and riders are able to rate each other on a scale from 1 to 7. An average of those ratings is associated with a user’s account and is displayed to other users for whom they provide or receive services. For example, rider ratings are available to dubci leaders from whom they request transportation, and driver ratings are available to their riders.
This 2-way system holds everyone accountable for their behavior. Accountability helps create a respectful, safe environment for dubci leaders and riders.
Riders can see their average rating in the main menu of the dubci app.
dubci leaders can see their average rating after tapping their profile photo in the dubci Driver app.
Delivery persons are also rated by delivery recipients and certified partners. Click here for more information.
D- Marketing opt-outs
Users may opt out of receiving promotional emails from dubci here. Users may also opt out of receiving emails and other messages from dubci by following the unsubscribe instructions in those messages. We may still send users who have opted out non-promotional communications, such as receipts for rides or information about their account.
E- User data requests
dubci provides users with a variety of ways to learn about, control, and submit questions and comments about dubci’s handling of their data. To make a request, please go here.
