To process your bookings we must share your geo-location information with the driver that is providing services to you.

We request that drivers use this information for the purposes of the provision of the Transportation Services only, and not store this information beyond the duration of the individual taxi service provided. By placing a booking, you hereby authorize us to share all booking-related information with any driver designated by you to provide you taxi services.

We do not control the privacy policies or actions of third parties, including the drivers. Any complaints or inquiries regarding use of your information by a driver, or marketing communications from a driver, should be addressed directly to the driver in question. Drivers within the ZapaTaxi network may also have their own websites.

ZapaTaxi is not responsible for how these drivers may collect your personal information through their own websites. Please contact the appropriate driver regarding its website's privacy policy (if applicable) and how it will access or use your personal information.
