How Personally Information is Used and Disclosed by RideMalibu:

Usage

We strive to ensure that we give you a stress-free rental experience and are dedicated to building a rewarding and lasting relationship with every customer. In order to provide the level of service we believe you expect from us, we may use your P.I. for the following purposes:

To provide the services and offerings that you request, and to communicate with you regarding such services and offerings;

To do all things necessary to administer those services;

To research, develop, manage, protect and improve our website and services.

We will NOT share any of your information with our “affiliates or business partners” services, nor any other information and materials. If you use our website, information may be used to evaluate what portions of our website are visited more often than others, determine where visitors came from, where they go, and how long they stay on a particular page, or on our website in general.

Disclosing

We may disclose your P.I. to affiliated and non-affiliated organizations including, for example:

To entities that provide services on our behalf;

To your credit card issuer;

To credit reporting and fraud checking agencies;

To debt collection agencies, if you fail to pay monies owed to us;

To government or private organizations responsible for the processing or handling of traffic or parking related violations;

To driver licensing authorities, directly or through intermediary organizations, when needed to verify compliance with RideMalibu’s rider criteria for qualified riders and/or to verify license information;

To government, regulatory and law enforcement agencies where the disclosure is required or authorized by law, and otherwise as we believe is necessary or appropriate to satisfy any law, regulation or other governmental request, to operate our website properly, or to protect or defend our rights or the rights or well-being of our employees, users or others or if you are involved (or are suspected by governmental authorities or our security functions to be involved) in any illegal activity, even without a subpoena, warrant or court order.

If you use our website, certain P.I. may be collected in the course of your use of our website. As with many websites, we may use both session based and persistent “cookies” and/or other technology (e.g., web bugs, e-mail bugs, clear GIFs, web beacons, tracker GIFs and “clickstream” data logs) in our site and other web sites, or in our electronic communications with you, to enhance the functionality of our website and services and to make your transactions and other activities more convenient and efficient. These technologies may vary, but in many cases may involve a small file stored locally on the computer used to access our website (commonly referred to as a ”cookie”), and may be used to store and collect information relating to your viewing and use of our website and our correspondences with you. We use cookies to track web site trends and patterns. This helps us understand our users needs better and improve areas of our Site. We store information we collect through cookies to create a profile of our users. A profile is stored information we keep on individual users that details their travel preferences, rental history and behavioral activity, and to minimize the need for you to re-enter information on our Site. Consequently, collected information is tied to a user’s P.I. to provide offers and improve our services and content within our Site.

Most cookies expire after a defined period of time, or you can delete your cookie file at any time. Most web browser software is initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your web browser software to refuse cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some parts of our website will not function properly or may be considerably slower if you refuse cookies. For example, without cookies, you will not be able to set personalized preferences, and/or may have difficulty completing transactions.

We may collect your computer’s IP (Internet Protocol) address and domain name address, the identity of your Internet service or access provider, the type of web browsing software you use, your computer’s operating system, the URL of the web page from which you came to visit our website and the language you selected for your web browsing software (collectively referred to herein as “clickstream data”). We use these technologies, for example, to identify our users, to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer and promote our and our ‘affiliates and business partners’ web sites and services.

Third parties (including, but not limited to, software vendors, advertisers, ad servers, content providers and services providers) may also use similar technologies by or through our Site or third party web sites. In connection therewith, such entities may collect information about you and your usage activity on this and other web sites. We have no responsibility with respect to what information such third parties track or collect, or for any tracking, data collection or other activities of such third parties. Please check their terms of use and privacy policies for such information.

We may use third-party service providers to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet and sometimes on this site. They may collect anonymous information about your visits to our Web site, and your interaction with our products and services. They may also use information about your visits to this and other Web sites to target advertisements for goods and services. This anonymous information is collected through the use of a pixel tag, or similar technology which is industry standard technology used by most major web sites.

Analytics

Analytics is the process of tracking Internet Protocol addresses to determine page views, search engine optimization (the process of improving rankings in search engine results) and responses to key AdWords selected by us. Like many companies, we offer tools for user tracking on our website. As part of this process, a piece of Javascript is rendered on every page of our website and when an end user such as yourself loads that page on their browser, you will automatically send a request to the provider of the snippet(s), which could allow said provider to identify your Internet Protocol address. We currently use Google as such providers, however, in the future may use additional providers. If you want to opt out of Google Analytics, please follow the procedures described at: http://www.google.com/intl/en_us/analytics/privacyoverview.html

Links to Other Web Sites

Our website may contain links or references to other web sites outside of our control, and the privacy policies of these sites may differ from our own. Please be aware that we have no control over such web sites and our privacy policy does not apply to such web sites. We advise you to check the privacy policies of such sites before disclosing any P.I. via such sites.

How We Protect the Security of Personally Information

The security of your P.I. is very important concern to us. We exercise extreme care in implementing generally accepted standards of technology security in order to protect information collected via our website from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption for some of your more sensitive P.I.

Unfortunately, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet, and no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee that any information stored on our servers, or transmitted to or from a user, will be free from unauthorized access. For example, and in particular, unencrypted e-mail is not a “secure” means of communicating with us, since e-mail may be intercepted by a third party in the course of its delivery. By using our Site and corresponding with us, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.

We will never request that you send us any sensitive personal information, such as your credit card number, password, membership number or pin number, in an e-mail or into a web site that is not located at the RideMalibu.com domain name. If you receive an e-mail or other correspondence requesting that you provide any such information via e-mail or to a website that is not on such domain name, please do not provide such information, and report such request to us on our Contact Us page.

In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your P.I. in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail.

You can opt-out of our use and disclosure of your P.I. for marketing purposes and customer satisfaction surveys, and/or withdraw your prior consent for same, by the methods provided below. If you do so, your consent will be withdrawn; however, it is possible that you may receive correspondences scheduled prior to our receipt and processing of your opt-out request.

To Opt Out of Email Campaigns: You may reply to a promotional or marketing e-mail that you have received from us by following the opt out procedures described in the promotional or marketing email. (If you use more than one e-mail address, then send your opt-out e-mail from each of your e-mail addresses.)

At our discretion, we may also provide additional methods for you to opt-out of having your P.I. used or disclosed for promotional and marketing purposes, such as by clicking on a checkbox located on the page of our site on which your P.I. is collected, or otherwise made available when you make reservations.

If you wish to contact us to: (1) inquire about our privacy practices; (2) provide feedback and comments regarding our privacy practices; or (3) access or correct your P.I. we have, Contact Us.

Applicable Law and Jurisdiction

This Privacy Policy shall be governed by the laws of the United State and the State of California, without regard to conflict of law principals. By providing any P.I. to us, you fully understand and unambiguously consent to the transfer of such P.I. to, and the collection and processing of such P.I. in, the United States and other countries or territories. You agree that any cause of action that may arise under this Privacy Policy shall be commenced and be heard in the appropriate court in the State of California, County of Los Angeles. You agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located within Los Angeles County in the State of California.
