inappropriate or dangerous behavior, such as by retaining information of banned users to prevent their
use of IQ LIFESTYLE's apps. We also use usage information to prevent matching of riders and partners
for whom there is higher risk of conflict (e.g., because they have been the subject of prior complaints

circumstances when users attempt to defraud IQ LIFESTYLE or other users.

pick-up / drop locations, recommending (new) features, improving navigation, and enhancing pricing
and matching riders and partners or delivery recipients and partners.
For research and analytical purposes. This includes, for example, analyzing usage trends to improve
the user experience and enhance the safety and security of our services.

tailor marketing messages to user needs.
To enforce IQ LIFESTYLE's Terms of Service.
d. The processing is necessary for the legitimate interests of other persons or parties
IQ LIFESTYLE collects and uses personal information to the extent necessary for the interests of
other persons or the general public. This includes sharing information in connection with legal or
insurance claims, to protect the rights and safety of others.

interest, based on applicable laws.
