At DriveShare, we are committed to respecting your privacy. This page explains how we treat your information.
We do not ever sell your personal information to anybody. We will only disclose your information to fulfill our responsibilities to you, to show you things that might interest you, or to personalize your experience with us. You can make choices about how your information is collected and used.
This Privacy Notice applies to any DriveShare transaction. We can only speak for ourselves, so this Privacy Notice does not apply to anybody else. This includes other products or websites that may be linked in our website.

The love of cars is international and so are we. We provide specific protections for any personal data received from Europe. DriveShare relies on Standard Contractual Clauses or derogations under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) for any personal data transfers to the United States. DriveShare participates in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework (“Privacy Shield”), and has self-certified with the Department of Commerce that we follow the Privacy Shield Principles. If you have a privacy or data use concern that we have not satisfactorily addressed, please contact our U.S.-based third-party dispute resolution provider (free of charge) at https://feedback-form.truste.com/watchdog/request.
DriveShare and people who represent DriveShare collect personal information in several situations during business. Personal information means any information that identifies an individual, household, or device. Personal information does not include “aggregate” information, which is de-identified data we collect about the use of the DriveShare marketplace or about a group or category of products, services or users. It is completely up to you what information you voluntarily provide to us. Depending on the situation, personal information we collect can include:
DriveShare generally uses personal information for the following reasons:
We reserve the right to review and store the communications you make through the site, including your postings on site pages and your communications to other members using the marketplace’s messaging capabilities. We may use those communications for internal purposes, including to better understand how members use the marketplace, as well as for security purposes. That being said, we are not obligated or required to review any communications and make no commitment to do so or to take any specific action with respect to those communications.
Any information you post in your profile or in any other public area of this website will be available to other users.
To be clear, we do not sell your information to anybody. However, we may have to disclose or share some information for the reasons listed above. We may, for example, disclose your information to:
If the ownership of DriveShare ever changes, we will transfer your information to the new owner and the same protection will apply unless a law says otherwise
We will not share motor vehicle/driving records or claims history reports with other DriveShare companies or third parties unless it is necessary to fulfill your request.
If you want to update or see any information that we have about you, just let us know. If you want to correct information we got from another party (such as a credit reporting agency), we can provide you with that party’s contact information. We may not be able to share information involved in an ongoing investigation.
We use Google and Adobe Analytics to help us with collecting various pieces of demographic information. Specifically, we have use geographic and general website movement pattern features. You can opt-out of these features that we use by applying Adobe’s or Google's currently available opt-outs.
You can block the use of these cookies by adjusting your browser’s or mobile device’s settings. If you reject a cookie, you may still use our website but will not have access to these enhancements.
Our website gives you a chance to leave reviews. Just remember that anything you post could become public.
Our website contains links to other sites. Please be aware, and when you leave our site, read the privacy statements of other websites. This Privacy Notice only applies to our website.
Surveys & Contests
Sometimes we have a survey or contest. These are 100% voluntary. Any information collected from a survey or contest will only be used to make our website or products better and to contact any winners.
If your car, or a car you rent through the marketplace, includes an in-car device, DriveShare will log and retain information recorded by the in-car device. This information includes location, mileage and other aspects of your use of the car during a rental period. If the in-car device is operated by a third party service, e.g. ZenDrive, that service may record information about your use of the car.
We do our best to protect your personal information. We use firewalls, encryption and Transport Layer Security (TLS). We use current technology and tools to keep your information safe. But nothing is perfect so please be careful and use strong passwords.
DriveShare will endeavor to choose service providers that are well established and who have agreed to protect the confidentiality of any personal information the service provider receives.
DriveShare does not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 13 years old without parental consent. If we do accidentally receive this information, we will delete it. If you think we have improperly received a child’s information, please contact us.
You have several rights concerning your personal information. Specifically, you have the right:
We will not discriminate against any person exercising any of these rights. These rights may be limited by law. For example, we may not be able to delete your information so we can defend ourselves in a lawsuit. Some information, such as insurance information, may be exempt from these obligations. We will need to verify your identity before fulfilling these requests.
Please submit your request using DriveShare's Privacy Request Form. You can open the form by clicking the button below, or you can call us to make your request over the phone.
If we receive a “do not track” signal from your internet browser we don’t currently change anything because professionals and lawmakers have not agreed on what can and should be done.
This Privacy Notice isn’t all original. We must modify it from time to time with aftermarket parts to keep up with the times. We will make big changes easy to find. If an update changes your rights, we will let you know directly. We keep old versions of this Notice archived.
