Information We Collect
A. Information You Provide to Us
Registration Information. When you sign up for a Saymemo account, you give us your name, email address, and phone number. If you decide to sign up for Saymemo using your Facebook account, we will also get basic information from your Facebook profile like your name, gender, profile photo, and Facebook friends.
User Profile Information. When you join the Saymemo community, you can create a Saymemo Profile to share fun facts about yourself, and discover mutual friends and interests. Filling out a profile is optional, and you can share as little or as much as you want. Your name (and for businesses, Profile photos) is always part of your Profile. Read more below about how you can control who sees your Profile. You can also add a Business Profile to your account, which requires a designated business email address and payment method.
Payment Method. When you add a credit card or payment method to your Saymemo account, a third party that handles payments for us will receive your card information. To keep your financial data secure, we do not store full credit card information on our servers.
Communications. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you. For example, when you contact our Customer Support Team, we will receive your name, email address, phone number, the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other information you choose to provide.
B. Information We Collect When You Use the Saymemo Platform
Location Information. Saymemo is all about connecting businesses and Users. To do this, we need to know where you are. When you open Saymemo on your mobile device, we receive your location. We may also collect the precise location of your device when the app is running in the foreground or background.
Your location information is necessary for things like matching users with nearby businesses, determining drop off and pick up locations, and suggesting destinations based on previous trips. Also, if the need ever arises, our Trust & Safety team may use and share location information to help protect the safety of Saymemo Users or a member of the public. In addition to the reasons described above, businesses’ location information and distance travelled is necessary for accurate location to match with users. If you give us permission through your device settings or Saymemo app, we may collect your location while the app is off to identify promotions or service updates in your area.
Device Information. Saymemo receives information from Users’ devices, including IP address, web browser type, mobile operating system version, phone carrier and manufacturer, application installations, device identifiers, mobile advertising identifiers, push notification tokens, and, if you register with your Facebook account, your Facebook identifier. We collect mobile sensor data from businesses’ devices (such as speed, direction, height, acceleration or deceleration) to improve location accuracy and analyze usage patterns.
Usage Information. To help us understand how you use the Saymemo Platform and to help us improve it, we automatically receive information about your interactions with the Saymemo Platform, like the pages or other content you view, your actions within the Saymemo app, and the dates and times of your visits.
Call and Text Information. We work with a third-party partner to facilitate phone calls and text messages between Users and businesses for a service if needed. We receive information about these communications including the date and time of the call or SMS message, the parties’ phone numbers, and the content of any SMS messages. For security purposes, we may also monitor and/or record the contents of phone calls made on the Saymemo Platform, such as those between users and businesses. You will be given notice that your call may be recorded, and by proceeding you agree to allow Saymemo to monitor and/or record your call.
User Feedback. Here at Saymemo, we want to make sure Users are always enjoying their services provided by businesses. Users may rate and review each business at the end of every service provided. We receive information about ratings and reviews and, as we explain below, give users information about businesses’ ratings.

We collect information through the use of “cookies”, tracking pixels, and similar technologies to understand how you navigate through the Saymemo Platform and interact with Saymemo advertisements, to learn what content is popular, and to save your preferences.

Sharing between Users and businesses. Users and businesses that have been matched for a service are able to see basic information about each other, such as names, photo, ratings, business name and any information they have added to their Profiles. businesses and Users who connect their Saymemo accounts to Facebook will also be able to see their mutual Facebook friends during the services. businesses see the pick-up location that the user has provided. users see a business’s vehicle information and real-time location as the business approaches the pick-up location. users’ ratings of businesses are shared with businesses on a weekly basis. We de-identify the ratings and feedback, but we can’t rule out that a business may be able to identify the user that provided the rating or feedback.
Although we help businesses and Users communicate with one another to arrange a service, we do allow you to share your actual phone number or other contact information with other Users.
