In order to use our services, we need access to certain functions of your device (so-called “permissions”).

Automatically Collected Information

TREKK also collects information through automated and technical means as you browse our Sites, use our Apps, or otherwise use the Services:

  • Device and Online Usage. We collect information about your computer, browser, mobile or other device that you use to access the Services. We may use cookies, pixels, log files and other similar technologies to collect such information, including IP address, MAC address, IMEI number, Bank verification number, IMSI number, Sim, device identifiers and other unique identifiers, browser type, browser language, operating system name, and version, device name and model, referring and exit pages, dates and times you access our Services, the length of time that you are logged into or using our Services, the links you click or features you use, software crash reports and session identification number.

Analytics: We compile and analyse information derived from the use of our Services, such as aggregate usage patterns, user preferences, peak demand times, common routes and other information.

Data collection by our vehicles

Our scooters contain Internet of Things devices “IoT ” or telematics units that send data (including the scooter's location and diagnostic data, e.g. battery status) at regular short intervals. This permits us to determine where our scooters are and at what speed they are moving. The IoT devices send data in real-time regardless of whether a scooter is currently rented or not.

We process data in connection with the rental in particular for the following purposes:

  • to determine whether a scooter is located in the respective TREKK business zone of operation or whether the end of the rental should take place outside the area of operation, as this is contrary to our General Terms and Conditions. In this case, our Scooters may trigger an alarm function ("geofencing").

  • in case of an unusually long period of use (especially if the scooter is not moved), we may terminate the rental.

  • requests to our customer service (e.g. a booking cannot be completed, Scooter cannot be located, assistance in case of accident).

  • as proof in the event of an accident or damage.

  • for billing purposes. We note in your booking history the start and end points of your trips as well as parking locations, if applicable.

  • to improve our services by analyzing the aggregated statistics of locations where users make bookings and end trips, as well as frequent routes, we can optimize the distribution of our scooters.

Information We Collect from Third-Party Sources

In some cases, we may collect user information from third parties.

  • Third Party Platforms and social media sites. When you interact with us or post content about us on third-party social media platforms – like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, LinkedIn, medium, YouTube or Pinterest – we may collect certain information about that interaction; the information that we may collect is based on your settings on and the policies of these social media platforms. We may also allow you to post certain information from these platforms to your TREKK Scooters profile, and permit you to log in to the Services using your third-party social media account, in which case you will be asked to consent to our access and collection of certain information from your social media profile, subject to the policies of that platform. A relevant example is Facebook.

  • Other Third-Party Sources. We also may collect information about you that we may receive from business partners, marketers, analysts and other sources to, enable us to verify and update the information contained in our records and better customize the Services for you. We may also collect information from credit reporting agencies and your bank or banks to determine your creditworthiness, credit score and credit usage, in compliance with and to the extent permitted by applicable laws.

  • Referrals. We may from time to time conduct a referral service so that you may introduce people you know to our Services, in accordance with applicable local laws. If you choose to use our referral service to tell someone about our Services, we will provide you with a template message and referral code to send to your friend. We will not collect the referral’s information unless he/she signs up to use the Services with the referral code.

Payment processing

To process the payment, we use external service providers to whom we transmit the data required for payment processing (first and last name, email address, telephone number, start and end time of the trip, payment ID, payment method, any further data about the means of payment, invoice number, language, zone/region).

Cookies are small files placed on your computer’s hard drive that enable the website to identify your computer as you view different pages. Cookies allow websites and applications to store your preferences in order to present contents, options or functions that are specific to you. Like most interactive websites, our website uses cookies to enable the tracking of your activity for the duration of a session. Our website uses only encrypted session cookies which are erased either after a predefined timeout period or once the user logs out of the platform and closes the browser. Session cookies do not collect information from the user’s computer. They will typically store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.


We will always hold your information securely. To prevent unauthorized access to your information, TREKK has implemented strong controls and security safeguards at the technical and operational levels. This site uses Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) to ensure secure transmission of your personal data. You should see the padlock symbol in your URL address bar once you are successfully logged into the platform. The URL address will also start with https:// depicting a secure webpage. SSL applies encryption between two points such as your PC and the connecting server. Any data transmitted during the session will be encrypted before transmission and decrypted at the receiving end. This is to ensure that data cannot be read during transmission.

Legal disclosure:

We will disclose any information we collect, use or receive if required or permitted by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process, and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.
