PickNdell Privacy Policy

Last Updated: August 1, 2020

 

At PickNdell our mission is to improve people’s lives with the world’s best pickup and delivery services, providing a platform to help you deliver goods from point A to point B. To do that, we need to collect, use, and share some of your personal information. This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand how PickNdell does that and how to exercise the choices and rights you have in your information.

 

The Scope of This Policy

This policy applies to all PickNdell users, including Businesses, Owners and Couriers (including Courier applicants), and to all PickNdell platforms and services, including our apps, websites, features, and other services (collectively, the “PickNdell Platform”). Please remember that your use of the PickNdell Platform is also subject to our Terms of Service.

 

The Information We Collect

When you use the PickNdell Platform, we collect the information you provide, usage information, and information about your device. We also collect information about you from other sources like third party services, and optional programs in which you participate, which we may combine with other information we have about you. Here are the types of information we collect about you:

 

A. Information You Provide to Us

Account Registration. When you create an account with PickNdell, we collect the information you provide us, such as your name, email address, phone number, birth date, and payment information. You may choose to share additional info with us for your Sender profile, like your photo or saved addresses (e.g., home or work), and set up other preferences (such as your preferred pronouns).

 

Courier Information. If you apply to be a Courier, we will collect the information you provide in your application, including your name, email address, phone number, birth date, profile photo, physical address, government identification number (such as social security number), driver’s license information and vehicle information. We collect the payment information you provide us, including your bank routing numbers, and tax information. Depending on where you need to deliver, we may also ask for additional business license or permit information. We may need additional information from you at some point after you become a Courier, including information to confirm your identity (like a photo).

 

Ratings and Feedback. When you rate and provide feedback about Senders or Couriers, we collect all of the information you provide in your feedback.

 

Communications. When you contact us or we contact you, we collect any information that you provide, including the contents of the messages or attachments you send us.

 

B. Information We Collect When You Use the PickNdell Platform

Location Information. Great senders start with an easy and accurate pickup. The PickNdell Platform collects location information (including GPS and WiFi data) differently depending on your PickNdell app settings and device permissions as well as whether you are using the platform as a Sender or Courier:

 

  • Senders: We collect your device’s precise location when you open and use the PickNdell app, including while the app is running in the background from the time you request a ride until it ends.
  • Couriers: We collect your device’s precise location when you open and use the app, including while the app is running in the background when it is in Available mode. 

 

Usage Information. We collect information about your use of the PickNdell Platform, including ride information like the date, time, destination, distance, route, payment, and whether you used a promotional or referral code. We also collect information about your interactions with the PickNdell Platform like our apps and websites, including the pages and content you view and the dates and times of your use.

 

Device Information. We collect information about the devices you use to access the PickNdell Platform, including device model, IP address, type of browser, version of operating system, identity of carrier and manufacturer, radio type (such as 4G), preferences and settings (such as preferred language), application installations, device identifiers, advertising identifiers, and push notification tokens. If you are a Courier, we also collect mobile sensor data from your device (such as speed, direction, height, acceleration, deceleration, and other technical data).

 

Communications Between Senders and Couriers. When a Courier accepts an order, both phone numbers are available to the parties in case there is a need to communicate with each other throughout the process of delivery.

 

Address Book Contacts. You may set your device permissions to grant PickNdell access to your contact lists and direct PickNdell to access your contact list, for example to help you refer friends to PickNdell. If you do this, we will access and store the names and contact information of the people in your address book.

 

Cookies, Analytics, and Third Party Technologies. We collect information through the use of “cookies”, tracking pixels, data analytics tools like Google Analytics, SDKs, and other third party technologies to understand how you navigate through the PickNdell Platform and interact with PickNdell advertisements, to make your PickNdell experience safer, to learn what content is popular, to improve your site experience, to serve you better ads on other sites, and to save your preferences.
