Sharing with cities and governments
In some instances, we’re required to share information about the trips taken on our service with cities, governments and local transportation authorities.
To meet these requirements, we collect geolocation and timestamp data from the vehicles on our platform.
This data provides cities with information on where each trip starts, stops, and the route taken on the trip. None of the trip data we provide to cities is collected from your personal mobile device or directly identifies you, but the trip data could be identifiable to you, with some effort. In such cases, we will inform you prior to the trip.
There are special circumstances, such as preventing fraud and responding to safety incidents, where Uber may collect background location for any rider in the “While Using” setting. A notice would appear in such a case.
We treat your location information in accordance with our User Privacy Notice.
