STARCABZ Privacy Policy provides the latest information about the data we collect and how we use it.

Data Collections And Uses
This policy applies to users of STARCABZ’s services anywhere in the world, including users of STARCABZ’s apps, websites, features, or other services.

This policy describes how STARCABZ and its affiliates collect and use personal information to provide our services. This policy applies to all users of our apps, websites, features, or other services anywhere in the world, unless covered by a separate privacy policy. This policy specifically applies to:

Riders: users who request or receive transportation

Drivers: users who provide transportation individually or through partner transportation companies

Admin Users: users who are supervisors of our corporate clients, who manage their day-to-day operation via STARCABZ App

This policy also applies to those who provide information to STARCABZ in connection with an application to use our services, or whose information STARCABZ otherwise receives in connection with its services (such as contact information of individuals associated with Clients of Fleet Management Solution or Employee Transport Automation Solution). All those subject to this policy are referred to as “users” for purposes of this policy.

The practices described in this policy are subject to applicable laws in the places in which we operate. This means that we only engage in the practices described in this policy in a particular country or region if permitted under the laws of those places. Please contact us if you have questions on our practices in your country or region.

STARCABZ collects:

– Information that you provide to STARCABZ , such as when you create your STARCABZ account.
– Information created when you use our services, such as location, usage, and device information.
– Information from other sources, such as from your employer or service provider when filling in your details to provide you transport services.

The following information is collected by or on behalf of STARCABZ:
User profile: We collect information when you create or update your STARCABZ account. This may include your name, email, phone number, login name and password, address, payment or banking information (including related payment verification information), government identification numbers such as Social Security number, driver’s license or passport if required by law, birth date, photo and signature. This also includes vehicle or insurance information of drivers. This also includes the preferences and settings that you enable for your STARCABZ account.

Background check information: We may collect background check information if you sign up to use STARCABZ’s services as a driver or service provider. This may include information such as your driver history or criminal record (where permitted by law). This information may be collected by a vendor on STARCABZ’s behalf.

Demographic data: We may collect demographic information about you, including through user surveys. In some countries, we may also receive demographic information about you from third parties.


User content: We may collect information that you submit when you contact STARCABZ customer support, provide ratings or compliments for other users, or otherwise contact STARCABZ.

Information created when you use our services
Location Information

Depending on the STARCABZ services that you use, and your app settings or device permissions, we may collect your precise or approximate location information as determined through data such as GPS, IP address, and WiFi.

If you are a driver or Supervisor (Admin User), STARCABZ collects location information when the STARCABZ app is running in the foreground (app open and on-screen) or background (app open but not on screen) of your device.

If you are a rider and have provided permission for the processing of location data, STARCABZ collects location information when the STARCABZ app is running in the foreground. In certain regions, STARCABZ also collects this information when the STARCABZ app is running in the background of your device if this collection is enabled through your app settings or device permissions.

Riders may use the STARCABZ app without enabling STARCABZ to collect their location information. However, this may affect the functionality available on your STARCABZ app. For example, if you do not enable STARCABZ to collect your location information, you will have to manually enter your pickup address. In addition, location information will be collected from the driver during your trip and linked to your account, even if you have not enabled STARCABZ to collect your location information.

Transaction Information

We collect transaction details related to your use of our services, including the type of services you requested or provided, your order details, delivery information, date and time the service was provided, amount charged, distance traveled, and payment method. Additionally, if someone uses your promotion code, we may associate your name with that person.

Device Information

We may collect information about the devices you use to access our services, including the hardware models, device IP address, operating systems and versions, software, file names and versions, preferred languages, unique device identifiers, advertising identifiers, serial numbers, device motion information, and mobile network information.

Communications data

We enable users to communicate with each other and STARCABZ through the STARCABZ apps, websites, and other services. For example, we enable drivers and riders, and Admin Users and recipients, to call or text each other (in some countries, without disclosing their telephone numbers to each other). To provide this service, STARCABZ receives some information regarding the calls or texts, including the date and time of the call/text, and the content of the communications. STARCABZ may also use this information for customer support services (including to resolve disputes between users), for safety and security purposes, to improve our products and services and for analytics.

User Settings And Transparency

STARCABZ provides means for you to see and control the information that STARCABZ collects, including through:

in-app privacy settings
device permissions
in-app ratings pages
marketing opt-outs

User Settings

The Settings menu in the STARCABZ app gives users the ability to set or update their location and contacts sharing preferences, and their preferences for receiving mobile notifications from STARCABZ. Information on these settings, how to set or change these settings, and the effect of turning off these settings are described below.

Location Information

STARCABZ uses rider’s device location services to make it easier to get a safe, reliable ride whenever you need one. Location data helps improve our services, including pickups, navigation, and customer support.

You may enable/disable or adjust STARCABZ’s collection of rider location information at any time through the App settings of your devices.

Share Live Location (Riders)

If enabled for you in your country, then you will see an option to disable it. If you have enabled the device location services on your mobile device, you may also enable STARCABZ to share your location with your driver from the time you request a ride to the start of your trip. This makes it easier for your driver to pick you up.

You may enable/disable location sharing with your driver at any time through the Privacy Settings menu in the STARCABZ app. You may use the STARCABZ app if you have not enabled location sharing, but it may be more difficult for your driver to locate you.

Notifications: Account and Trip Updates

STARCABZ provides users with trip status notifications and updates related to your account. These notifications are a necessary part of using the STARCABZ app and cannot be disabled. However, you may choose the method by which you receive these notifications through the Settings menu in the STARCABZ app.

Notifications: Discounts and News

You may enable STARCABZ to send you push notifications about discounts and news from STARCABZ. You may enable/disable these notifications at any time through the Settings menu in the STARCABZ app.

Most mobile platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without your consent. And these platforms have different permission systems for obtaining your consent. The iOS platform will alert you the first time the STARCABZ app wants permission to access certain types of data and will let you consent (or not consent) to that request. Android devices will notify you of the permissions that the STARCABZ app seeks before you first use the app, and your use of the app constitutes your consent.

In-app Ratings Pages

After every trip, riders and drivers are given the opportunity to rate each other and give feedback about their trip. When you rate your driver, the rating that you give your driver is anonymized and combined with ratings from other riders of your driver.

Marketing Opt-Outs
