delivery and billing information, payment information and other information that you provide in connection with the use or purchase of a product or service;
information about preferences and interests based on the use of our app or websites;

from third parties in the form of business partners, such as payment service providers, and companies that the Company engages for marketing purposes.
Escoot does not require personal information to be entered in order to conduct a search on our application. We may collect personal information when our on-demand Services are used, or when the User registers with a Mobility Provider or for our newsletter.
In order to allow a User to access the Mobility Services of a third-party Provider through Escoot, we may ask the User for certain data which is sent to the Provider, who will process it as independent data controllers. The personal data may include, but not limited to: name, address, age, nationality, select information on an identity document or driving licence, payment information, password, PIN, etc. This data is processed confidentially and stored securely, and is only transmitted to the Provider of a Mobility Services if the User asks Escoot to access those Mobility Services through Escoot. The communication of that data to the Provider is necessary to enable the User’s request, and without it, Escoot is not able to provide the Service requested.
Escoot is a separate entity from the Mobility Providers and their services and Escoot should not be confused with them as clarified in our User Agreement for the website www.escoot.bike, www.escoot.io and the Escoot App. Escoot is not a representative of the Providers and does not act on their behalf in the collection of the User’s personal data. As such, the personal data collected independently by Escoot to allow the User to access the Mobility Services, including the login credentials relative to accounts with the Providers of the aforementioned Services, will be processed by Cogo ApS exclusively in the interests of the User and in order to carry out their requests.
