  • Information created when you use our services, such as location, usage and device information.
  • Information from other sources, such as LEX partners and third parties that use LEX's API.

 

 

LEX collects the following categories of information:

Depending on the services that you use, and your app settings or device permissions, LEX may collect your precise or approximate location information as determined through data such as GPS, IP address and Wi-Fi.

  • If you are a GSA or delivery partner, Uber collects location information when the LEXLIVE app is running in the foreground (app open and on-screen) or background (app open but not on screen) of your device.
  • Delivery recipients may use the LEXSHIP app without enabling LEX to collect their location information. However, this may affect the functionality available on your LEXSHIP app. For example, if you do not enable LEX to collect your location information, you will have to manually enter your Pickup address. In addition, location information will be collected from the Service partner during pickup of shipment, even if you have not enabled LEXSHIP to collect your location information.
  • Transaction Information

We collect transaction details related to your use of our services, including the type of services you requested or provided, date and time the service was provided, amount charged, Consignee details, Products purchased and other related transaction details.
