What information we collect and why we collect it.
How we use that information.
The choices we offer related to your information.
Information we collect
We collect information in the following ways:
Information you give us. For example, many of our Services require you to sign up for a Via Account. When you do, we’ll ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or credit card. We may collect information about the Services that you use and how you use them. This information includes:
We may collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number). Via may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your Via Account.
When you use our Services or view content provided by Via, we may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This may include:
details of how you used our service.
Internet protocol address.
device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your Via Account.
When you use a location-enabled Via service, we may collect and process information about your actual location, like GPS signals sent by a mobile device. We may also use various technologies to determine location, such as sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.
Unique application numbers
Certain Services include a unique application number such as, a Via or your Customer Internal ID issued by your transit agency. This number and information about your installation (for example, the operating system type and application version number) may be sent to Via when you install or uninstall that service or when that service periodically contacts our servers, such as for automatic updates.
We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
Cookies and anonymous identifiers
VIA MAY ALSO COLLECT ANY OTHER INFORMATION THAT THE SERVICES COLLECTS THAT IS DEFINED AS PERSONAL OR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION UNDER AN APPLICABLE LAW
How we use information we collect.
We do not sell your personal information to anyone.
We use the information we collect from our Services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Via and our users. We may also use this information to offer you tailored content.
We may use the name you provide to Via across all the Services we offer that require a Via Account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your Via Account so that you are represented consistently across all our Services.
When you contact Via, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our Services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our Services. For example, by saving your location preferences, we’ll be able to have our Services appear for the locations you prefer.
Via processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live. Via complies with applicable territory law respecting use and storage of your personal information.
Information we share
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Via unless one of the following circumstances applies:
With your consent
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Via when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
For external processing
For legal reasons
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Via if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Via, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.
We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our Services.
Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever you use our Services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our Services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our Services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
Access, correction, or deletion requests can be made by contacting Via Customer Support

For example, they can recognize you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (e.g., by remembering your user preferences).
What cookies do we use?
Below we list the different categories of cookies we may use on the Services.
Functionality Cookies. Functionality cookies allow us to remember the choices you make while browsing the Services and to provide enhanced, personalized content and features. For example, functionality cookies allow us to customize a certain webpage, remember if we have asked you to participate in a promotion, and remember other services you request, like watching a video or commenting on a blog.

To improve your user experience, Local Shared Objects (“Flash cookies”) are used to provide functions such as remembering your settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on your device, but they are managed through an interface different from the one provided by your web browser. This means it is not possible to manage Flash cookies at the browser level in the same way you would manage cookies. Instead, you can access your Flash management tools from Adobe’s website directly. The Adobe website provides comprehensive information on how to delete or disable Flash cookies – visit http://www.adobe.com/security/flashplayer for further information. Please be aware that if you disable or reject Flash cookies for the Services, you may not be able to access certain features such as video content or services that require you to sign in.
