Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy – JoGlob

At JoGlob, we want to connect people through transportation and bring communities together. In this privacy policy, we tell you what information we receive from JoGlob passenger and Independent drivers, and how we use it to connect Passengers with drivers and continue to improve our services. Below, we explain how you can share with other Passengers and drivers in the JoGlob community as part of our mission to bring people together.

Scope of this Privacy Policy

JoGlob (“JoGlob,” “we,” “our,” and/or “us”) values the privacy of individuals who use our application, websites, and related services (collectively, the “JoGlob Program”). This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) explains how we collect, use, and share information from JoGlob Program Users (“Program Users”), comprised of both JoGlob Passengers (“Passengers”) and JoGlob drivers (including Driver applicants) (“Drivers”). Beyond the Privacy Policy, your use of JoGlob is also subject to our Terms of Service (

Information We Collect

A. Information You Provide to Us

Registration Information. When you sign up for a JoGlob account, you give us your name, email address, and phone number. If you decide to sign up for JoGlob using your Facebook account, we will also get basic information from your Facebook profile like your name, gender, profile photo, and Facebook friends.

Program User Profile Information. When you join the JoGlob community, you can create a JoGlob Profile to share fun facts about yourself, and discover mutual friends and interests. Filling out a profile is optional, and you can share as little or as much as you want. Your name (and for Drivers, Profile photos) is always part of your Profile. Read more below about how you can control who sees your Profile. You can also add a Business Profile to your account, which requires a designated business email address and payment method.

Payment Method. When you add a credit card or payment method to your JoGlob account, a third party that handles payments for us will receive your card information. To keep your financial data secure, we do not store full credit card information on our servers.

Communications. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you. For example, when you contact our Customer Support Team, we will receive your name, email address, phone number, the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other information you choose to provide.
Independent Driver Application Information. If you decide to join our JoGlob driver community, in addition to the basic registration information we ask you for your date of birth, physical address, Social Security number, driver’s license information, vehicle information, car insurance information, and in some jurisdictions we may collect additional business license or permitting information. We share this information with our partners who help us by running background checks on Drivers to help protect the JoGlob community.

Payment Information. To make sure Independent Drivers get paid, we keep information about Drivers’ bank routing numbers, tax information, and any other payment information provided by Drivers.

B. Information We Collect When You Use the JoGlob Program

Location Information. JoGlob is all about connecting Independent Drivers and Passengers. To do this, we need to know where you are. When you open JoGlob on your mobile device, we receive your location. We may also collect the precise location of your device when the app is running in the foreground or background. If you label certain locations, such as “home” and “work,” we receive that information, too.
Your location information is necessary for things like matching Passengers with nearby Independent Drivers, determining drop off and pick up locations, and suggesting destinations based on previous trips. Also, if the need ever arises, our Trust & Safety team may use and share location information to help protect the safety of JoGlob Program Users or a member of the public. In addition to the reasons described above, Independent Drivers’ location information and distance travelled is necessary for calculating charges and insurance for JoGlob Trips. If you give us permission through your device settings or JoGlob app, we may collect your location while the app is off to identify promotions or service updates in your area.

Device Information. JoGlob receives information from Program Users’ devices, including IP address, web browser type, mobile operating system version, phone carrier and manufacturer, application installations, device identifiers, mobile advertising identifiers, push notification tokens, and, if you register with your Facebook account, your Facebook identifier. We collect mobile sensor data from Independent Drivers’ devices (such as speed, direction, height, acceleration or deceleration) to improve location accuracy and analyze usage patterns.

Usage Information. To help us understand how you use the JoGlob Program and to help us improve it, we automatically receive information about your interactions with the JoGlob Program, like the pages or other content you view, your actions within the JoGlob app, and the dates and times of your visits.

Call and Text Information. We work with a third-party partner to facilitate phone calls and text messages between Passengers and Independent Drivers who have been connected for a Trip. We receive information about these communications including the date and time of the call or SMS message, the parties’ phone numbers, and the content of any SMS messages. For security purposes, we may also monitor and/or record the contents of phone calls made on the JoGlob Program, such as those between Passengers and Independent Drivers. You will be given notice that your call may be recorded, and by proceeding you agree to allow JoGlob to monitor and/or record your call.

Program User Feedback. At JoGlob, we want to make sure Program Users are always enjoying great Trips. Passengers and Independent Drivers may rate and review each other at the end of every Trip. We receive information about ratings and reviews and, as we explain below, give Passengers information about Independent Drivers’ ratings and reviews and vice versa.

Address Book Contacts. If you permit JoGlob to access the address book on your device through the permission system used by your mobile Program, we may access and store names and contact information from your address book to facilitate invitations and social interactions that you initiate through our Program and for other purposes described in this privacy policy or at the time of consent or collection.

Information from Cookies and Similar Technologies. We collect information through the use of “cookies”, tracking pixels, and similar technologies to understand how you navigate through the JoGlob Program and interact with JoGlob advertisements, to learn what content is popular, and to save your preferences. Cookies are small text files that web servers place on your device; they are designed to store basic information and to help websites and apps recognize your browser. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be accessed every time you use the JoGlob Program. You should consult your web browser(s) to modify your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete or choose not to accept cookies from us, you may be missing out on certain features of the JoGlob Program.

C. Information We Collect from Third Parties

Third Party Services. If you choose to register for JoGlob or otherwise link your JoGlob account with a third party’s service (such as Facebook), we may receive the same type of information we collect from you (described above) directly from those services.

Third Party Partners. We may receive additional information about you, such as demographic data, payment information, or fraud detection information, from third party partners and combine it with other information that we have about you.

Enterprise Programs. If your company, university, or organization participates in one of our enterprise programs such as JoGlob for Work, we may receive information about you, such as your email address, from your participating organization. We also may give your participating organization the opportunity to request a Trip on your behalf, in which case they may provide us with your name, phone number, and the pickup and drop off location for your Trip.

Background Information on Drivers.
JoGlob works with third party partners to perform driving record and criminal background checks on Drivers, and we receive information from them such as publicly available information about a Driver’s driving record or criminal history.

How We Use the Information We Collect

We use the information we collect from all Program Users to:

  • Connect Passengers with Drivers
  • Provide, improve, expand, and promote the JoGlob Program
  • Analyze how the JoGlob community uses the JoGlob Program
  • Communicate with you, either directly or through one of our partners, including for marketing and promotional purposes
  • Personalize the JoGlob experience for you and your friends and contacts
  • Send you text messages and push notifications
  • Facilitate transactions and payments
  • Provide you with customer support
  • Find and prevent fraud and
  • Respond to trust and safety issues that may arise, including auto incidents, disputes between Passengers and Drivers, and requests from government authorities.

Additionally, we use the information we collect from Independent Drivers for the following purposes related to driving on the JoGlob Program:

  • Sending emails and text messages to Drivers who have started the driver application process regarding the status of their application
  • Determining an Independent Driver’s eligibility to drive for JoGlob
  • Notifying Drivers about Trip demand, pricing and service updates and
  • Calculating and providing JoGlob’s auto insurance policy and analyzing usage patterns for safety and insurance purposes.

How We Use the Information We Collect

A. Sharing Between Program Users

Sharing between Passengers and Independent Drivers. Passengers and Independent Drivers that have been matched for a Trip are able to see basic information about each other, such as names, photo, ratings, and any information they have added to their Profiles. Passengers and Independent Drivers who connect their JoGlob accounts to Facebook will also be able to see their mutual Facebook friends during the Trip. Independent Drivers see the pick-up location that the Trip has provided. Passengers see an Independent Driver’s vehicle information and real-time location as the Independent Driver approaches the pick-up location. Passengers’ ratings of Independent Driver are shared with Independent Driver on a weekly basis. We de-identify the ratings and feedback, but we can’t rule out that a driver may be able to identify the Trip that provided the rating or feedback.
Although we help Passengers and Independent Driver communicate with one another to arrange a pickup, we do not share your actual phone number or other contact information with other Program Users. If you report a lost or found item to us, we will seek to connect you with the relevant Trip or Independent Driver, including sharing actual contact information with your permission.

Sharing between JoGlob Line Passengers. If you use JoGlob Line, Passengers who have been matched with you will be able to see your name, photo and any information you have added to your Profile. If you connect your JoGlob account to Facebook (such as by signing up through Facebook), we may show your mutual friends with other Passengers who are also connected via Facebook. During the JoGlob Line matching process we may show photos of possible matches to you and other Passengers.

B. Sharing Between JoGlob and Third Parties

API and Integration Partners. If you connect to the JoGlob Program through an integration with a third-party service, we may share information about your use of the JoGlob Program with that third party. We may share your information with our third-party partners in order to receive additional information about you. We may also share your information with third party partners to create offers that may be of interest to you.

Third Party Services. The JoGlob Program may allow you to connect with other websites, products, or services that we don’t have control over (for example, we may give you the ability to order a food delivery from a restaurant from within the JoGlob app). If you use these services, we will provide the third party with information about you to allow them to provide the service to you (for example, we would give the restaurant your name, phone number and address to drop off the food). We can’t speak to the privacy practices of these third parties, and we encourage you to read their privacy policies before deciding whether to use their services.

Service Providers. We work with third party service providers to perform services on our behalf, and we may share your information with such service providers to help us provide the JoGlob Program, including all of the things described in Section 3 above.

Enterprise Partners.
If you participate in an enterprise program and charge a Trip to your organization’s billing method or credits, we will provide your organization’s account holder with information about your use of the JoGlob Program, including Trip details such as date, time, charge, and pick up and drop off locations. If you create a Business Profile, at the end of each Trip you will have the option to designate the Trip as a business Trip. If you do so, and your organization has a corporate account with JoGlob, we may share information about your use of JoGlob Program with your organization including Trip details such as date, time, charge, and region of the trip. If you change organizations, it is your responsibility to update your Business Profile with the new information. (Please remember to check and set your designation settings accordingly.) If you integrate your account with an expense Program (like Concur) we will share the Trip details to your expense account.

International Partners. We’ve partnered with several Trip-sharing services around the globe, so Passengers can continue to find Trips when they open the JoGlob app abroad, and Independent Driver can provide services to international travelers in the U.S. When we match a Trip with the partner, we share the same information that is shared between matched Passengers and Independent Driver on the JoGlob Program. In some cases, we are unable to mask your phone number if you call an international driver, so please keep that in mind before using this feature.

Other Sharing. We may share your information with third parties in the following cases:

  • While negotiating or in relation to a change of corporate control such as a restructuring, merger or sale of our assets
  • If a government authority requests information and we think disclosure is required or appropriate in order to comply with laws, regulations, or a legal process
  • With law enforcement officials, government authorities, or third parties if we think doing so is necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of the JoGlob community, JoGlob, or the public (you can read more about this in our Law Enforcement Request policy)
  • To comply with a legal requirement or process, including but not limited to, civil and criminal subpoenas, court orders or other compulsory disclosures.
  • If you signed up for a promotion with another Program User’s referral or promotion code, with your referrer to let them know about your redemption of or qualification for the promotion
  • With our insurance partners to help determine and provide relevant coverage in the event of an incident
  • To provide information about the use of the JoGlob Program to potential business partners in aggregated or de-identified form that can’t reasonably be used to identify you and
  • Whenever you consent to the sharing
