See “Choice and transparency” below for information on how riders and order recipients can enable precise location data collection.
Riders and order recipients may use the Bodaboda apps without enabling collection of location data from their mobile devices. However, this may affect certain features in the Bodaboda apps. For example, a rider who has not enabled precise location data will have to manually enter their pickup address.
In addition, precise location data collected from a driver’s device during a trip is linked to the rider’s account, even if the rider has not enabled precise location data to be collected from their device. This data is used for purposes such as customer support, fraud detection, insurance, litigation and receipt generation.Transaction information: We collect transaction information related to the use of our services, including the type of services requested or provided; trip or order details (such as date and time, requested pick-up and drop off addresses, distance traveled and items ordered); and payment transaction information (such as a restaurant’s or merchant’s name and location, amount charged, and payment method).

Safety, fraud protection and security. We use data to help maintain the safety, security, and integrity of our services and users. This includes:verifying users’ accounts, identity or compliance with safety requirements.
For example, we review driver and delivery person background checks (including criminal history where required or permitted by law) to verify their identities and eligibility to provide transportation or deliveries.
In the United States, we may also perform rider and order recipient identity verification using names, date of birth, emails, telephone numbers, payment information, and third party wallets, to help deter use of our services by fraudulent accounts.
We also require verification of user identity and/or age to use payment methods such as cash, receive deliveries of alcohol or cannabis, or use products like Bodaboda Carshare and Bodaboda Rent. We process user profile pictures, government-issued identification photos and numbers, or other user-submitted photographs to perform this verification, including in some regions through use of facial recognition technology. We also use such technology to prevent fraudulent use of identification photos, or to prevent users from creating multiple accounts.
We also use facial recognition technology to prevent fraudulent use of Bodaboda accounts by those other than the account owner. This is done through Bodaboda’s Real-Time ID Check feature, which regularly asks drivers and delivery persons to take selfies before they can go online, which Bodaboda then compares with their profile picture and driver’s license photo. (In the UK, we also use location and device data associated with such selfies for this purpose). We also use this feature to verify change of bank account information, and to facilitate regaining account access.
We also use selfies to verify that users are wearing helmets or other safety gear through the use of object verification technology.
We also use data from delivery persons’ devices to verify the type of vehicles they used to provide deliveries.
Please see here for more information regarding account and identity verification.using customer service information (including reports of safety incidents), device data (e.g., to detect speeding or harsh braking / acceleration), transaction, and usage data to identify potentially unsafe drivers and driving.
