In light of the GDPR compliance, UGABUS Inc, as a global force in the Online Travel space would like to reveal to your our updated terms of use policy and mandate.
Our aim is not just to comply with privacy law. It’s to earn your trust.

This policy explains what information we collect when you use UGABUS’ sites, services, mobile applications, products, and content (“Services”). It also has information about how we store, use, transfer, and delete that information.

Information We Collect & How We Use It
UGABUS doesn’t make money from ads. So we don’t collect data in order to advertise to you. The tracking we do at UGABUS is to make our product work as well as possible.

In order to give you the best possible experience using UGABUS, we collect information from your interactions with our network. Some of this information, you actively tell us (such as your email address, which we use to track your account or communicate with you). Other information, we collect based on actions you take while using UGABUS and our sister products, such as what pages you access and your interactions with our product features (like bus booked, Routes taken and site navigation). This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet Protocol address, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information.

We use this information to:
• Provide, test, improve, promote and personalize Ugabus Services
• Fight spam and other forms of abuse
• Generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use Medium Services.

When you create your UGABUS account, and authenticate with a third-party service (like Twitter, Facebook or Google) we may collect, store, and periodically update information associated with that third-party account, such as your lists of friends or followers. We will never publish through your third-party account without your permission.

Information Disclosure
UGABUS won’t transfer information about you to third parties for the purpose of providing or facilitating third-party advertising to you. We won’t sell information about you. That is not our business model.

We may share your account information with third parties in some circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; (2) to a service provider or partner who meets our data protection standards; (3) with academic or non-profit researchers, with aggregation, anonymization, or pseudonomization; (4) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process; (5) when we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to someone.

If we are going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others. We will object to requests for information about users of our services that we believe are improper.

Data Storage
Ugabus uses third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as Godaddy, for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology we need to run Ugabus. We maintain two types of logs: server logs and event logs. By using Ugabus Services, you authorize Ugabus to transfer, store, and use your information in the United Kingdom and any other country where we operate.

Tracking & Cookies
We use browser cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you return to our Services. We use them in various ways, for example to log you in, remember your preferences (such as default language), evaluate email effectiveness, allow our paywall and meter to function, and personalize content and other information.
Ugabus doesn’t track you across the Internet. We track only your interactions within the Ugabus network (which encompasses Ugabus.com and custom domains hosted by Ugabus).

Some third-party services that we use to provide the Ugabus Service, such as Google Analytics, may place their own cookies in your browser. This Privacy Policy covers use of cookies by Ugabus only and not the use of cookies by third parties.

Ugabus complies with the “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) standard recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium. For logged-out users browsing with DNT enabled, Ugabus’ analytics will not receive data about you, but we will do some first-party tracking in order to customize content and provide data to third-party service providers that enable Ugabus Services to work. When you use Ugabus while logged-in to your account, we cannot comply with DNT.
Data Security
We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee security. You use the Service at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account.

Business Transfers
If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, reorganization or sale of assets such that your information would be transferred or become subject to a different privacy policy, we’ll notify you in advance so you can opt out of any such new policy by deleting your account before transfer.

Email from Ugabus
Sometimes we’ll send you emails about your account, service changes or new policies. You can’t opt out of this type of “transactional” email (unless you delete your account). But, you can opt out of non-administrative emails such as activity notifications, newsletters and news through your account’s “Settings” page

When your interact with an email sent from Ugabus (such as opening an email or clicking on a particular link in an email), we may receive information about that interaction. We won’t email you to ask for your password or other account information. If you receive such an email, please send it to us so we can investigate.

Payment Processors
Ugabus provides Services in conjunction with several payment processors, including: Stripe, MTN & Airtel mobile money services, paypal, CoinPayment, Paypal, Google Play, and Apple Pay, through which users may pay while purchasing and/or using the Ugabus services like ticket bookings and memberships. Those companies acting as payment processors may collect and store personal data related to your billing information and history in order to provide their services, and may collect and store personal data and business data to prevent fraud and other abuse.

Changes to this Policy
Ugabus may periodically update this Policy. We’ll notify you about significant changes to it. The most current version of the policy will always be here and we will archive former versions of the policy on our website.
