Ithaca Carshare appreciates and values the trust our members place in us. We are committed to protecting our members' private, personal information.

Our sources of information about members

  • The information provided on applications, other forms, or via electronic applications (such as name, contact information, and Social Security number).
  • Member interactions/transactions with us and organizations performing services on our behalf (such as driving history, payment history, and usage information).
  • Employer, group organizations, or other affiliations (such as updated information pertaining to your relationship to those organizations).

Our use of your personal information

We treat personal information with respect for privacy. Except as disclosed in the Ithaca Carshare Member Agreement and as necessary to conduct ordinary business operations or comply with valid law enforcement requests, Ithaca Carshare will not disclose any member's personal information (such as but not limited to name, physical and e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, driver's license number, birth date, Social Security number, bank and credit card account numbers) without the prior permission of the member.

In the course of administering Ithaca Carshare memberships, we do disclose information to other organizations. The law permits us to disclose any or all information we have collected about members to companies that perform services on our behalf and to organizations with which we are affiliated. Before disclosing member information to these organizations, we require that they keep it confidential and use it only for the transactions we request.

Protecting your personal information from unauthorized access

In Ithaca Carshare’s operations, we limit access to member information to those workers who have a legitimate business reason for such access. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect personal information from being accessed by unauthorized persons.

Ithaca Carshare does not accept or transmit credit card data by email. 

Aggregate and anonymous membership information

Ithaca Carshare may, without seeking any member’s prior permission, share aggregate or anonymous membership information for the purpose of facilitating research intended to promote the public good.

Sharing with Ithaca Carshare’s partners and other “like-minded” organizations

Ithaca Carshare may share consenting members' contact information with its partners or other organizations with missions that we believe may be of interest to Ithaca Carshare members. If you would like to receive information from these organizations, please indicate this when applying for membership or updating your information with us. If you do not indicate you are willing for us to share your information, only your anonymous or aggregate information will be disclosed as described in the paragraph above.
