Purposes: To confirm user’s contact information for the subsequent calls and SMS communication. To authorize user and identify his/her rights and opportunities while using the service (e.g., discounts, available personal accounts).
Note: The entered phone number does not necessarily has to be of the device you are using the application on. The full functionality of the application can be enjoyed even when it is used on devices without SIM card, as long as the user logs in with a phone number he/she knows or can get an SMS with a confirmation code on. User’s phone number is not given to any third parties, except the times when successful order execution is impossible without direct communication between driver and user.
Supposed physical location of the device.
Purposes: Improvement of the address autocomplete through suggestion of the addresses around device’s physical location.

At any moment, user can stop sharing device’s physical location data with the service by customizing the appropriate parameter in the application or in the device’s settings. Information about the supposed physical location of the device is not retained.
