1. Privacy Policy

1.1 Introduction

Motion respects your privacy and shares your concern about the security of information you may submit to Motion’s websites and the related mobile applications and services (collectively, the “Services”). Our privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) explains the information we collect, how we use and share it, how to manage your privacy settings and your rights in connection with the Services.

Motion is headquartered in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and our Services are provided to you by ByCycling International B.V. If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), ByCycling International B.V. is the controller of your personal data for the purposes of EEA data protection law. ByCycling International B.V was founded in 2017.

If you live in any other country, except those in the European Region, your Services are provided by ByCycling International B.V. (“ByCycling International"), which is also your data controller responsible for your information when you use our Services.


1.2 About Motion Products and Services

Motion is a business-to-business (“B2B”) digital solution which is integrated to an open activity tracker app, that allows our clients, private or public organizations, to easily launch Mobility Programs to their end-users. Our clients may reward their end-users with financial rewards by issuing e-gift cards or virtual debit cards to their users without independently integrating with issuing banks, payroll processors, and cardholder screening and authorization providers.


2. Collection of Information

Motion collects the following information with your consent or on behalf of our Clients through a user’s use of our Services. Sometimes, we receive information directly from you, such as name and email address, when you submit a contact form on our website or when users sign up for an account with us or one of Motion’s Clients. In other cases, we receive information from our Clients, who collect the information from users, for regulatory and compliance purposes.


2.1 Information You Provide to Us

Motion collects certain information that website visitors and mobile users provide directly to us. For example, if you contact us to learn more about our Services using our website forms, or when you sign up with an account with us; we may collect the following information:

  • Contact information – Name, email address, phone number;

  • Employment information – Company name, role, and location; and

  • Any other personal information you choose to include in your message.

In order to enable Motion to comply with anti-terrorism, financial services and other applicable laws and regulations, we may require a KYC (‘Know Your Customer’) identification process, which may require us to process the following information from users in order to issue e-gift cards or virtual debit cards information:

  • Account information – Name, date of birth, address, email address, phone number;

  • Identity verification information – Social security/tax identification number, driver license details, passport/visa details, national identity cards; and

  • Home address or address verification information – Bank statements, and/or utility bills.

Users provide this information during the KYC registration process when issuing a virtual card for one of our Client’s Mobility Programs . We collect and use this information to comply with our legal obligations.


2.2 Information We Collect Automatically

When you use Motion’s Services, we automatically collect the following information:

  • Usage analytics – Motion collects information to improve and optimize our Services, such as browser type, and usage details, such as time, frequency, and use pattern. Sometimes, we analyze information on specific end users such as the time spent on the platform.

  • Device information – We also collect device information, like IP address, device type, operating system, manufacturer, model, and model number, push notification tokens, and unique device identifiers.

  • Transaction information – Motion collects transaction information when you make purchases using our Programs’ cards. The information that we collect includes, but is not limited to, the merchant name, the purchase amount, and date of purchase. This information is necessary for business purposes such as providing our services, resolving customer issues, maintaining the security of our Services, and conducting internal research to understand how customers interact with our Services. The information is also necessary to fulfill our financial compliance requirements.


2.3 Information We Receive from Third Parties

Motion also collects information about you from other sources, including:

  • Our Clients – Motion receives user information when users apply for financial services, such as e-gift cards or virtual debit cards provided by our Clients. This helps our Clients provide their financial services in a more efficient manner, for example to issue cards to users without independently integrating with issuing banks, processors, card printing facilities, and cardholder screening and authorization providers. This information is necessary for us to fulfill KYC compliance requirements.

  • Other third-party partners – We receive information from third-party partners to help us enhance our Services with useful information.


2.4 Location and Personal Information

When you first launch our app, you will be asked to consent to the application's collection of this location information. We require this location information to use our Services, so if you do not consent to this collection, our Services will not function as intended. If have the “automatic tracking” mode enabled, we track your device’s location when you move further than 100 meters, even if you are not directly interacting with the app. If you initially consent to us the collection of location information, you can subsequently stop the collection of this information at any time by changing the preferences on your mobile device. If you do so, our mobile applications, or certain features thereof, will no longer function. You can also choose to enable “manual tracking” mode within the settings of the Motion app, so you can track the activities manually at any moment. You may also stop our collection of location information by following the standard uninstall process to remove all of our mobile applications from your device.

Motion uses the motion sensors and location services in your phone to track most of your activities, and to provide you with stats about these activities. For example, we analyze location points and motion data to determine when you are riding your bike. We track your movement patterns when you start moving further than 100 meters. We analyze these patterns to generate statistics about activities and present them to you via the Services.

We do not share or sale your personal or location data with third parties ever. However, if you participate in one of our programs, the program creator such as your employer or city, may request you to provide information such as, but not limited to: your name, email or home and work address, which is visible to them and is used to verify your eligibility to the program. If you participate in one of our programs, we may share with the program creator information of your participation to the program such as, but not limited to: total and average distance of your activities, total time spent or number of days you are active with the app, total value of rewards redeem, and other statistics, in order for them to provide you with rewards, based on your proven activities. 

We also may use anonymized, aggregated data to improve Motion as a whole. It helps us optimize our activity detection and measure the overall performance of the App. We may also use aggregated stats, which cannot be tied to individual users, to help you compare yourself to others.


2.5 Third-Party Accounts

Motion allows you to sign up and log in to the Services using accounts you create with third-party products and services, such as Facebook, Google, or Apple (collectively, “Third-Party Accounts”). If you access the Services with Third-Party Accounts we will collect information that you have agreed to make available such as your name, email address, profile information and preferences. This information is collected by the Third-Party Account provider and is provided to Motion under their privacy policies. You can generally control the information that we receive from these sources using the privacy controls in your Third-Party Account.


2.6 Technical Information and Log Files

We collect information from your browser, computer, or mobile device, which provide us with technical information when you access or use the Services. This technical information includes device and network information, cookies, log files and analytics information.

The Services use log files. The information stored in those files includes IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer, protect and secure the Services, track member movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses may be linked to session IDs, user IDs and device identifiers.


2.7 Cookies

Through our website we collect certain information through the use of “cookies,” which are small text files that are saved by your browser when you access our Services. We use session cookies to monitor and improve our Services. Although most browsers automatically accept cookies, you can change your browser options to stop automatically accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting cookies. Please note, however, that if you don’t accept cookies, you may not be able to access all portions or features of the Services. Some third-party services providers that we engage may also place their own cookies on your browser. Note that this Privacy Policy covers only our use of cookies and does not include use of cookies by such third parties.


2.8 Other Information

We may collect information from you through third parties, such as when we collect your feedback through surveys.

7.5 Right to know about the personal information we collect and share

The CCPA gives you the right to request that we disclose the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you, which we do after we receive and validate your request.

Motion does not sell your personal information. However, we may disclose certain personal information for a business purpose. When you make a request to download your personal information, we will include a list of the categories of personal information that we may have disclosed about you, as well as the categories of third parties to whom your personal information may have been disclosed.

  • where necessary to comply with a legal obligation, a court order, or to exercise and defend legal claims;

  • to protect your vital interests, or those of others, such as in the case of emergencies; and

9. Links to Other Sites

Our Services may contain links to other websites and services. Any information that you provide on or to a third-party website or service is provided directly to the owner of the website or service and is subject to that party's privacy policy. Our Privacy Policy does not apply to such websites or services and we are not responsible for the content, privacy or security practices and policies of those websites or services. To protect your information we recommend that you carefully review the privacy policies of other websites and services that you access.


10. International Transfer

The Services are operated from inside the European Union. If you are located outside of the European Union states and choose to use the Services or provide information to us, you acknowledge and understand that your information will be transferred, processed and stored in the European Union, as it is necessary to provide the Services and perform the Terms of Service.

Many of our external third parties are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA. Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.

If you are a parent or guardian of a child, you may review and request deletion of the child’s personal information by contacting hello@himotion.co.


12. Privacy Policy Information
