We collect contact information and location. When you order maintenance or repair work for your car through the App, it is necessary that our Service members be able to contact you and travel to the location you select for the work to be performed.

We collect information about your car. When you order work through the App you will be asked to provide certain information about the car you want serviced such as its make, model and year.

CHNGr payment system. The Service available through the App includes a payment system that allows you to pay with a credit or debit card (the “Payment System”). The Payment System uses a third party payment processor, to handle all credit and debit card transactions. If you make use of the Payment System, when you input your credit or debit card number to pay for service on your car the number is encrypted and is only routed (in encrypted form). CHNGr never sees or obtains your credit or debit card number.
