Privacy Policy

MyWorldTaxi is an online service that provides recommendations for taxi services in cities around the world. Our website, mobile properties, and related applications (collectively, our “Website”) are a part of MyWorldTaxi. More details about MyWorldTaxi can be found under “Contact” section.

We understand that providing information online involves a great deal of trust on your part. We take this trust very seriously, and make it a high priority to ensure the security and confidentiality of the personal information you provide to us when you visit our Website or use our services. Before submitting your personal information to us, please read this Policy carefully to learn about our privacy practices. By visiting MyWorldTaxi’s website, www.myworldtaxi.com, or using a MyWorldTaxi application ("Application" or "App") on a mobile phone, tablet, or similar device ("Device") or in connection with other sites or services, you are accepting the practices described herein.

What information we collect from you

We receive and store any information you enter on our Website or give us in any other way. This includes information that can identify you ("personal information"), including your first and last name, telephone number, postal and email addresses, user name and password. You can choose not to provide information to us, but in general some information about you is required in order for you to receive relevant information and offers from MyWorldTaxi. In addition, some information is also required in order for you to ask us a question or initiate other transactions on our site.

We may collect personal information when individuals register to use the MyWorldTaxi website and services, post a link to the website or submit questions, comments or bug reports. We may also, at times, collect our users' IP addresses and information regarding our users' use of our website and services. We may use such IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our servers, track movement within our website and, if necessary, deny service in accordance with our Terms of use.

We may also collect information related to the referring URL, access times, its source and browser type. Unless required by law, we will not share our users' personal information, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and use information, except with their consent or in aggregate or anonymous form, with third parties. Registered members are able to post their reviews, upload images, e-mail our content to themselves and others.

Cookies and Other Web Technologies

Cookies are small data text files and can be stored on your computer’s hard drive or your Device (if your Web browser permits). MyWorldTaxi uses cookies for the following general purposes:

(i) To help us recognize your browser as a previous visitor and save and remember any preferences that may have been set while your browser was visiting our site. For example, if you register on our site, we may use cookies to remember your registration information, so you do not need to log into our site each time you visit. We also may record your password in a cookie, if you checked the box entitled "Save this password for automatic sign-in." Please note that member IDs, passwords, and any other account-related data included in such cookies are encrypted for security purposes. (ii) To help us customize the content, experience, and advertisements provided to you on our websites and Apps and on other websites across the Internet. For example, when you access a web page, a cookie is automatically set by us, our service providers, or our partners to recognize your browser as you navigate on the Internet and to present you with information and advertising based on your apparent interests. (iii) To help measure and research the effectiveness of features and offers, advertisements, and email communications (by determining which emails you open and act upon).

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers should tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable most types of cookies. Please note that if you refuse to accept cookies, you may not be able to access many of the tools offered on our website.

Our websites may also use Web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or Web bugs), which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are placed in the code of a Web page. We use Web beacons to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our sites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, and to improve site performance. We also may allow our service providers to use Web beacons to help us understand which emails have been opened by recipients and to track the visitor traffic and actions on our site. This helps us measure the effectiveness of our content and other offerings.

Display of Advertising/Your Choices

Data collected to serve you with relevant advertising

MyWorldTaxi and its affiliated websites are committed to providing you with relevant content and information across our sites. To do this, we may collect information about your travel-related searches and other site activities, such as where you are searching for taxi information, and use this information to serve you with ads on our sites or elsewhere online that match your apparent interests. So, for example, if you search for a taxi in Brazil on MyWorldTaxi, you may see an ad for a taxi in Brazil on MyWorldTaxi or on another website you visit.

We do not share your personal information (such as email addresses) with unaffiliated third parties so they can serve you with advertisements.

Data collected by business partners and ad networks to serve you with relevant advertising

Many of the advertisements you see on the MyWorldTaxi family of sites are served by MyWorldTaxi or its service providers. However, we also allow third parties to collect information about your online activities through cookies and other technologies. These third parties include (1) business partners, who collect information when you view or interact with one of their advertisements on our sites, and (2) advertising networks, which collect information about your interests when you view or interact with one of the advertisements they place on many different websites on the Internet. The information gathered by these third parties is used to make predictions about your characteristics, interests or preferences and to display advertisements on our sites and across the Internet tailored to your apparent interests.

Please note that we do not have access to or control over cookies or other technologies these third parties may use to collect information about your interests, and the information practices of these third parties are not covered by this Privacy Policy. Some of these companies are members of the Network Advertising Initiative, which offers a single location to opt out of ad targeting from member companies.

Response to Do Not Track signals

Your web browser may transmit a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signal to MyWorldTaxi and other websites. Because of differences in web browsers’ default settings and the manner in which browsers incorporate DNT signals, it is sometimes unclear to site operators whether site visitors have selected the DNT setting themselves, or whether they are aware that they have a choice in determining the setting. MyWorldTaxi does not currently respond to DNT signals. Once the Internet industry has settled on standards related to this issue and MyWorldTaxi recognizes such standards, we may re-evaluate this approach.

How we use your information

MyWorldTaxi uses the information we collect about you for the following general purposes:

(i) for registration and to manage your account, including to allow your access to and use of our site; (ii) to communicate with you in general, including to provide information about MyWorldTaxi and invitations from the MyWorldTaxi community; to enable us to publish your reviews, forum posts, and other content to the MyWorldTaxi community; to facilitate your booking of travel reservations; (iii) to respond to your questions and comments; (iv) to measure interest in and improve our products, services, and Website; (v) to notify you about special offers and products or services available from us or our partners that may be of interest to you; to otherwise customize your experience with MyWorldTaxi, including customizing the ads shown to you; (vi) to solicit information from you, including through surveys; (vii) to resolve disputes or troubleshoot problems; to prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities; (viii) to enforce our Terms of Use; and as otherwise described to you at the point of collection.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

External links

If any part of the MyWorldTaxi Website links you to other websites, those external websites do not operate under this Privacy Policy. We recommend that you examine the privacy statements posted on those websites to understand their procedures for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

MyWorldTaxi may change or modify this Privacy Policy in the future. We will note the date that revisions were last made to this Privacy Policy at the top of this page, and any revisions will take effect upon posting.
