Most mobile device platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without the device owner’s permission. Different platforms have different methods for how that permission can be obtained. Please check the available settings on your device or check with your provider.

2. Marketing and Opting Out

In some countries we cannot provide you with any direct marketing communications unless we have obtained your express consent to do so in advance.

In all cases, Careem provides End Users and Captains the opportunity to opt-out of receiving direct marketing communications from us and our partners:

  • in any direct email marketing communication that you receive from us; and
  • for End Users, from the ‘Settings’ menu in the Careem application.

3. Data Subject Rights

If you would like Careem to correct personal data Careem holds about you, please read here. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information Careem holds about you corrected.

If you decide to deactivate your account, you may reach out to us here. Please note that if you are a Captain, additional steps may be required to give effect to this request.

Depending upon which country you are in at the time that we collect and use your Personal Data and the Service that you make use of you may have some or all of the following rights under applicable law:

  • To request access to your data, including your profile data and trip or order history (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). If the information you request reveals personal data about a third party, we will: (i) seek that individual's consent before responding to your request, (ii) consider if it is otherwise reasonable to provide it to you; or (iii) we will redact third parties' personal data before responding. If we are unable to provide you with access to your personal data because disclosure would infringe the rights and freedoms of third parties, we will notify you of this decision.
  • To request erasure of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask Careem to erase Personal Data where:
    • your Personal Data is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected;
    • the sole legal ground for processing was your consent and you have withdrawn it;
    • you have objected to processing of your Personal Data on the legal grounds relating to your particular situation, and Careem cannot prove that there are overriding legitimate interests for processing;
    • your Personal Data were processed unlawfully; or
    • your Personal Data must be erased in order to comply with legal requirements.

Before requesting to delete an account, you are required to complete/cancel and active or schedule orders or bookings, cancel any Careem Plus or Bike subscriptions and empty your Careem PAY wallet. If you are the end user of an enterprise/corporate account, we may be unable to process your deletion request if there are outstanding payments for that enterprise account.

After we receive your erasure request, you will be logged out of your Careem account. We will process your request within 90 days. If you log in your Careem Account during these 90 days, your deletion account will be cancelled and your account will remain unchanged.

Careem may be required to retain some data in line with legal or regulatory requirements, for purposes of safety, security, and fraud prevention, or because of an issue relating to your account such as an outstanding credit or an unresolved claim or dispute.

  • To object to us processing of your Personal Data where Careem is relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground.

  • To request us to restrict our processing of your Personal Data where:

    • you consider that our processing of your Personal Data is inaccurate;
    • you consider that the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of your Personal Data and you require the restriction of the processing instead;
    • we no longer need the Personal Data for the purposes of the processing but the Personal Data is required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim; or
    • where you require verification that processing on the legitimate interests of Careem override your interests.
  • To revoke your consent, where we have expressly asked for your consent as a legal basis to process your Personal Data. The revocation of your consent will not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on your prior consent.

Depending on your location or the version of the Careem application that you are using, you may exercise these rights through the Settings menu in the Careem app or by contacting us here.

We will contact you for additional information if we are unable to verify your identity, the scope of your request is unclear or does not provide sufficient information for us to conduct a search (for example, this will be the case if you request “all information about me”). Once we have all the information, we need to locate your personal data, we will begin processing your request.

Applicable law may allow or require us to refuse to act on your request, or we may have destroyed, erased, or made your personal data anonymous in accordance with our record retention obligations and practices. If we determine that your request does not have a legal basis, we reserve the right to not further process your request and we will inform you of this decision.

In addition, depending on your location, you may have the right to file a complaint relating to our handling of your Personal Data with the data protection authority in your country.

9. Security Precautions
