Government Transparency Report
Uber is dedicated to protecting the privacy of our users and supporting the growth of cities. Our Government Transparency Report demonstrates our commitment to advancing these goals when it comes to responding to requests for user information.
In this report, Uber is sharing an overview of information that we provided to government regulators, airports, law enforcement agencies, and public health officials in the US and Canada between January 1 and December 31, 2020.
Our data sharing commitments
Protect user privacy
Being good data stewards means more than just protecting the data we collect. For all requests, we work closely with the local authority to understand the legal basis for their request and determine which data is most useful and necessary, taking care to minimize the amount of information that could potentially identify an individual.
Support community development and safety
When cities thrive, Uber thrives. We’ve worked with cities around the world to identify and use data to support important policy initiatives, including those that enable a diversity of mobility options, improve public safety, and reduce emissions.
Be transparent about government requests for our users’ data
We want to stimulate a public discussion about why and when companies are required to disclose data to government agencies. That’s why we include requests from multiple types of agencies in this report. We also support regulations that hold private and public entities legally accountable to users for the personal data they collect.
Types of requests Uber receives
US Safety Report
Uber’s US Safety Report, the first comprehensive publication of its kind to be issued by a company, shares details on Uber’s safety progress, its processes, and data related to the reports of the most serious safety incidents occurring on our platform. It represents the latest in a series of actions Uber has taken to continually improve the safety of our platform for all who use it.
At Uber, we believe that sustainability is integral to the success of our business. Our environmental, social, and governance (ESG) report outlines the many ways in which Uber builds value and, through its core business and social impact activities, helps to make the world a better place. Most importantly, it demonstrates how we’re turning our commitments into action.
People and Culture Report
Our People and Culture Report features diversity data about our employees. But it’s also about long-term systemic changes that lead to better representation and an improved sense of belonging. It is a reflection of our commitment to move forward with racial and social equity at the center of all we do.
