The information we learn from Customers helps us personalize and continually improve your limousine shopping experience at Ridehire. Here are the types of information we gather:
General Information You Give Us:
We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you will not be able to take advantage of many of our features, including receiving pricing on limo services or making a reservation/booking. In order to receive quotes from Ridehire's participating third-party AFFILIATE's, you must first create an account by providing your first and last name, email or phone number and creating a password. You may also provide such information if you participate in a contest or questionnaire, or communicate with customer service; provide information in your account or profile; communicate with us by phone, e-mail, or otherwise; provide employer information when opening a corporate account; provide and rate AFFILIATE reviews; or employ our personal notification services, such as trip reminders. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with booking or reservation information such as your name, address, and phone numbers; credit card information; and content of reviews and e-mails to us. We use the information that you provide for our general commercial purposes including to allow us and our AFFILIATE's to respond to your requests, customize future shopping for you and communicate with you.
If you choose to add your friend as a passenger for the reservation or Send Invitations on our site, we will ask you for your friend’s name and address. Ridehire stores this information for the sole purpose of completing the reservation and tracking the success of our reservation and invitation.
Your friend may contact us at [email protected] to request that we remove this information from our database.

AFFILIATE's: We share information with our third-party AFFILIATE's so that they may provide quote information, may communicate with Customers directly to provide service information (typically to answer Customer questions, describe the AFFILIATE's services or reservation request) and provide the limousine service itself. When you request a quote, a reservation or ask a question of an AFFILIATE, we share your "Customer Criteria" with the AFFILIATE in order for the AFFILIATE to provide you with the above information about their limousine service. Your "Customer Criteria" includes your name, your communication preference (email and/or phone call), any email or phone number you provided, your limousine ride type, vehicle preferences, dates/times and location of service and any special requests you submitted.
