How Bolt Travel Analyses Your Communications

We may review, scan, or analyse your communications on Bolt Travel’s website for fraud prevention, risk assessment, regulatory compliance, investigation, product development, research, and customer support purposes.

In some cases, we may also scan, review, or analyse messages to debug, improve and expand product offerings. We use automated methods where reasonably possible. However, occasionally we may need to manually review some communications, such as for fraud investigations and customer support, or to assess and improve the functionality of these automated tools. We will not review, scan, or analyse your communications to send third-party marketing messages to you and we will not sell reviews or analyses of these communications.

These activities are carried out based on Bolt Travel’s legitimate interest in ensuring compliance with applicable laws and our Terms and Conditions, preventing fraud, promoting safety and improving and ensuring the adequate performance of our services.
