An approach to building data around 4 pillars

We keep your data secured

When you use Getaround, you trust us with your data. Our teams work around the clock to protect it from fraud, abuse, and unauthorized access.
We’ve also implemented strict rules to make sure minimal number of employees have access to the basic information they need to do their job. And we’ve committed not to sell your data - to anyone.

We use data to build trust and safety

When you come to Getaround, you expect to connect with trustworthy drivers and find safe cars. We have learnt to instantly identify numerous signals that help us flag and investigate suspicious activity before it happens.
We also automatically check identity documents and driving licences for Getaround Connect rentals to keep our community safe from fraud.

We use data to improve your experience

At Getaround we are always working to make sure our service fits your needs. We use data as a source of feedback to improve our website and app or to develop new features and tools.
We store some information to save you re-entering it every time you use Getaround. And we use your geolocation to find the closest Getaround cars to you and help you find them.

We provide you the necessary tools to control your data

Through the settings of your Getaround account or on your device, you can modify your personal information or personalize your cookie preferences at any time.
We’ve also set up a dedicated email address in case you want to ask us questions on our personal data protection policy or if you want to access to, modify or delete your personal data.

Our answers to your questions

Getaround uses the same definition as GDPR to qualify what is personal data and what isn’t. As a result, we define ‘personal data’ as any information relating to an identified or identifiable person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, whether by reference to a name, an identification number, a phone number, an address or an online identifier…
Getaround collects information to help make your experience not only possible, but also great, whether that’s connecting owners and drivers, helping you get the car you need, improving safety, or keeping you in touch with us. This includes information you provide to us, like your account information, and information we collect when you use our services, like your location to display the Getaround cars that are around you.
We check identity documents and driving licences of Getaround Connect rentals for insurance purposes but also to keep the Getaround community safe from fraud.

We also have a team dedicated to data security and privacy working around the clock to prevent theft, fraud, or abuse of your information.
