Yellow 333 AD ("Yellow", "We", "Us") is a personal data controller. As such, we exercise extreme care and responsibility in respect of the personal data you provide to us for the purposes of the conduct of our business, namely provision of taxicab services. We have made this Privacy Policy to inform our customers ("You", "Your/s") about all types of personal data we collect and the way we process and store the data, in compliance with the applicable national and European legislation in the area of personal data protection.

What Data We Collect and for What Purposes (Purposes of Processing)?

 

Book a Cab by Phone

 

When you book a cab by phone on 02/91119 or 1219, for the purposes of the services provided by us, we ask you to give us your phone number, so that we can call you, and the pick-up address for the cab. In addition to this, for the purposes of our work and book-keeping, as well as to provide you with a comfortable trip every time, we also store the route and the end destination of your trip, along with other information: how you paid for your ride, whether pets rode in the cab, and any information provided by the user of the service.

 

For your convenience, when you next call us, and again for the purposes of our book-keeping, we keep your phone number and the recent addresses from where you have booked a cab in our system.

 

In addition, when booking a cab by phone, the call is recorded to improve the service. Orders records are kept for a maximum of 3 months and then automatically deleted. It is possible, in case of dispute, some records to be kept until such disoute it is finally resolved.

 

Please kindly bear in mind that in case you do not want these data stored and used by us when you next use our services, for us it is technically impossible to delete the data automatically. For this to be done, you need to request data deletion at e-mail office@yellow333.com. Please kindly remember that the deletion will lead to loss of information about your orders. The data may not be deleted either, if by virtue of a special statutory act or legal requirement of a government institution we are required to store the data, and if our legitimate interest allows us to store some of your data.

 

Book a Cab via a Mobile App

 

You can also book a cab via our mobile app Yellow Taxi. For your registration in our mobile app (an application in Google Play and App store), you provide us with your name and surname (you may also use nicknames), e-mail address, phone number and pick-up address for the cab. In addition to this, for the purposes of our work and book-keeping, we also store the route and the end destination of your trip.

 

Please kindly bear in mind that in case you do not want these data stored and used by us when you next use our services, for us it is technically impossible to delete the data automatically. For this to be done, you need to request data deletion at e-mail office@yellow333.com. The data may not be deleted either, if by virtue of a special statutory act or legal requirement of a government institution we are required to store the data, and if our legitimate interest allows us to store some of your data. However, please kindly bear in mind that if you delete the data you have given us in the mobile app (your account), you will not be able to use the service again and will need to register anew when you next access the mobile app.

 

In addition, we kindly draw your attention also to the fact that with the installation of our app on your mobile phone and/or another device, you get the personal data of our drivers who are driving you and/or have driven you in our previous orders so that you can find your cab. These data are stored on your app for a certain time for your convenience and also in the case of lost items, complaints about the service, driver rating, and/or any other information you wish to share with us. However, it is entirely your responsibility not to use the personal data of our drivers for other purposes save those listed here.

 

Book a Cab on Viber

 

You can also book a Yellow Taxi cab using our Viber bot. For the purposes of registration to use the Viber bot, you provide us with your name(s) (you may also use a nickname), phone number and pick-up address for the cab. In addition to this, for the purposes of our work and book-keeping, we also store the route and the end destination of your trip. Viber encrypts your messages and they cannot be traced to you to make possible for third persons to identify you.

 

Automatically with the registration on our Viber bot you obtain access to our public chat where you may keep up-to-date with the latest news about us and our services. The updates are not sent to your personal account and do not bother your daily business in any way; you may check them up only when you go to our public chat as a follower.

 

Please kindly bear in mind that in case you do not want these data stored and used by us when you next use our services, for us it is technically impossible to delete the data automatically. For this to be done, you need to request data deletion at e-mail office@yellow333.com. The data may not be deleted either, if by virtue of a special statutory act or legal requirement of a government institution we are required to store the data and if our legitimate interest allows us to store some of your data. However, please kindly bear in mind that if you delete the data you have given us in Viber, you will not be able to use the service again and will need to register anew when you next decide to use Viber.

 

In addition, we kindly draw your attention to the fact that with using our Viber bot on your mobile phone and/or another device, you get the personal data of our drivers who are driving you, who have driven you in our previous orders, and/or who have started a trip to carry our your order but which was cancelled for some reason. Our drivers' personal data that reach you are (at the most) name and surname, phone number, photo and a Viber account of the driver, so that you can find your cab. These data are stored on your app for your convenience and also in the case of lost items, complaints about the service, driver rating, and/or any other information you wish to share with us. We cannot erase these data as they are stored on your personal Viber account. Due to this it is entirely your responsibility not to use the personal data of our drivers for other purposes save those listed here.

 

Book a Cab on Our On-line Platform

 

On our website https://www.yellow333.com/porachka/online, you can book a cab on-line and also use our new web-based platform https://book.autocab.net/30410.

 

To do so, you can register for the purposes of booking a cab. For your registration, you provide us with your name and surname (you may also use nicknames), e-mail address and phone number. This is how you get a profile to our web order system.

 

In order to book a cab, we also require an address where you expect a car to be shipped. Furthermore, for the purposes of our activity and accountability, we record the route and the end point you have travelled. You can also fill in other information such as number of passengers, luggage, payment method.

 

When ordering a taxi from/to Sofia Airport, we require additional information such as flight number, number of passengers, luggage and more.

 

Please kindly bear in mind that in case you do not want your data, as our registered user, to be stored and used by us when you next use our services via the web based platform, for us it is technically impossible to delete the data automatically for our system. For this to be done, you need to request data deletion at e-mail office@yellow333.com. The data may not be deleted either, if by virtue of a special statutory act or legal requirement of a government institution we are required to store the data and if our legitimate interest allows us to store some of your data. However, please kindly bear in mind that if you delete the data you have given us in the web platform, you will be able to book a cab only without registration, (unless you sign up again), which will greatly reduce the convenience of a quick booking for you.

 

Cab Vouchers/Yellow Subscribers

 

If you are a customer by subscription, this means that you and/or employees of your organization use our cab services with payment vouchers issued by Yellow.

 

When you use a paper voucher, it is filled in with the following information: date when the cab service was carried out, start time, destination, and name and signature of the person who used the service (usually a subscriber's employee). The vouchers with these data are handed over to Yellow by our drivers at the end of each calendar month. Yellow processes them within one month (30 days) at the most, and returns the vouchers to the respective subscription customer. Our drivers and Yellow exercise extreme care and responsibility in respect of the personal data contained in the vouchers, namely, name and signature of the person who used the service. The data are stored according to the proper technical and organizational measures.

 

When electronic vouchers are used, Yellow again provides proper technical and organizational measures to protect the personal data contained in the vouchers (the data are the same as with the paper voucher, but without a signature). All orders received via an electronic voucher are processed via our Autocab system as described below.

 

In addition to the above, our customers often avail themselves of our airport transfer service from and to Sofia Airport. In this connection Yellow received data about third persons visitors or employees of our customers. The information is re-sent to our drivers who prepare name sheets (on paper or on a tablet) containing the name and surname of the person that needs to be picked up so that he/she can be identified. We need and process the following data: name and surname of the person, phone number, flight number, airport terminal, destination, and manner of payment.

 

Personal data by customer's assessment (rating)

 

As detailed in our Terms and Conditions for Use of the Tax Shipment Service of YELOW 333 AD (the "Yellow's Terms&Conditions"), section "Customer Assessment (Rating)", you are subject to an evaluation by Yellow with respect to your correct attitude towards us, our drivers and operators.

Usually, the way we evaluate our customers is manually done, and the information and feedback we get from our drivers is recorded to your phone number (for example, an unpaid account, a customer who has not shop up when an order is made, etc.). So we decide whether to perform services to you or not and at what time of the day to perform orders from you. We also manually enter customer's ratings for customers to be encouraged by us - such as award for large number of orders, trips made, and more.

 

Part of our customer assessment is done in addition to manual with an automated data processing intervention - an algorithm in our ordering system calculates the percentage of those cases in which you ordered a tax but did not use it. This is an automatic setting, but not entirely, because it is governed by us. We have a choice to decide which order communication channel (mobile app, Viber, online) what percentage of unfulfilled orders to count that to determine whether we to perform services to you or not and whether we serve you in peak hours or not. Customers are grouped into our system in a number of categories (for example, "Perfect Customer", "Customer to Be Restricted", "Customer Receiving Services Completely", "Limited Customer", etc.). Customer status may change from one state to another automatically depending on the orders it uses. However, we regularly check our system, the correctness of the algorithms used, and we retain the ability to manually change the customer's status if we believe it will be serviced despite accumulated negatives. In these cases, we also use your phone number for the purpose of assessing your status.

 

In connection with the above, we note that even if you do not use our services for a longer period of time and/or request that your personal data be completely deleted by us (name, address, direction, route or other information, as described above), it is in our legitimate interest to keep at least your phone number, with your status as our customer, for a certain period of time. In this way, we will be able to recognize our incorrect customers and protect ourselves from misuse of our services (as well as with a view to protecting all our legitimate rights and interests in a possible dispute). The personal data stored is in a minimum volume and is not used for anything other than the purposes described herein. Such data does not significantly harm your legal rights and interests, nor do represent a risk for you.

 

Autocab/Other Necessary Information

 

For the purposes of our services, we use the international system Autocab, www.autocab.com. If a cab booking is confirmed by you (by one of the possible ways to order), the data provided by you are stored safely in the Autocab system for on-line booking, which too adheres to all requirements for personal data protection according to the applicable European legislation. The data stored in Autocab are kept on servers within Europe. Autocab fully adheres to all our instructions about your data and their storage.

 

We sometimes may use and analyse aggregate information (aggregate data referring to a group or category services or customers from which the individual identities or characteristics have been removed), collected by means of the provision of analytic data, so that we can administer, maintain, improve and develop our services.

 

In addition to the above, in connection with certain special requirements you may have to us, occasionally we may store details such as about people with health issues or disabilities, number and age of children and/or pets. Such information is processed in compliance with all necessary technical and organizational measures for its protection, as well as in line with the requirements of the applicable legislation. 

 

If you wish to use a payment terminal to make your payment, provided that your cab has one, the data for your credit/debit card too can be stored so that we may provide the service you have requested. This operation is performed using a card reader managed by Pay Pal, www.paypal.com, in compliance with the applicable laws on protection of personal data.

 

In connection with your use of the options to book a cab via the mobile app, Viber, and the on-line platform, we kindly ask you to bear in mind that these platforms may collect information about you on their own grounds, so that you may want to check the privacy policy of each platform (for example, Viber, Google Play) to check how they use your information and see how you can refuse or delete such information.

 

When you book a cab, you data is used in a responsible manner also by our operators, solely and only for the purpose of the provision of our service. Our operators, as well as our drivers, have undergone personal data protection training and we carefully monitor the compliance with our data protection rules on their part. Our processing of all your personal data is based on our internal data protection policies which comply with the currently applicable national and European legislation in this respect.
