This policy applies to all individuals of whom we process personal data (data subjects), such as clients, Website visitors and Application users.
We can obtain such personal data because you have given it to us. Registering on the Website or Application and filling out the fields that request some personal data make said data immediately available to Poppy.

We may, however, sometimes ask you questions asking about your character (e.g. “would you describe yourself as eco-conscious?”) via a survey. Surveys remain anonymous and are answered on a voluntary basis; this means you may refrain from answering any such questions.
When you decide to use any of our vehicles (cars, scooters, or kick scooters), you are voluntarily providing us with certain individually identifiable information regarding their usage. We collect and process this information, which may include but is not limited to the type of vehicle you used, the duration of your booking, and the distance you drove a vehicle.
When you decide to use our vehicles (more specifically when using our cars and scooters), Poppy will collect some judicial data (e.g. “has your driver license already been revoked in the past?”) for insurance purposes as it is required by the law.
