LUGO Privacy Policy


This first version of our privacy policy takes effect on 5 October 2018. In this privacy policy, we have described what information we collect from you, on what basis we collect it, how we use it, and rights you have to control how we use it. This policy applies to anyone who uses our website, ("Site") and our app ("LUGO App"). We will refer to the Site and LUGO App as "the App". "We", Manja Technologies Pte Ltd, A Company of ManjaLink Pte Ltd ("Company"), a company registered in Singapore, is an organisation processing personal data as defined under the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 of Singapore ("PDPA") and is a controller and processor as defined under the EU General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"). Pursuant to the PDPA and GDPR, we are mindful and committed to the protection of your personal data and your privacy in the course of using the App.


There are three categories of information we collect:

1. Information you provide
2. Information created when you use our App; and
3. information from other sources.

1. Information You Provide

When you use the App, you might provide us with (a) personal data; (b) places and preferences; and (c) direct communications.

a. Personal Data

    In order for us to operate the App for your utility and enjoyment in an efficient and effective manner, we may need to collect the relevant personal data from you either manually or through the App.

b. Places And Preferences

    You may choose to provide us with information on your places and preferences, such as home and work address, saved places, stops and bus routes, news and subject matter preferences, and other travel preferences. We process this information in order to provide you with personalised city-centric services. We also store and analyse this data in aggregate to improve the App (for example, by ranking certain journey results more highly than others), and to create and evaluate routes for the user.

c. Direct Communications

    Communications you might send to us include responses to in-App survey questions, reporting a problem, or submitting queries, concerns or comments regarding the App. These messages to us will also contain details such as the type of phone you're using, your service provider, and if you have enabled the location permissions in your device, the latitude and longitude of your location when you contact us. We process this information in order to fix problems in the App, to reply to your communications, and to send notification to users for communication purposes.

2. Information Created When You Use The App

The following are the types of information created when you use the App. We associate this information with an installation ID number that is randomly generated each time you install the App. We use this installation ID to identify the user and pseudonymise the data we collect from you. We do not access any permanent device ID numbers.

a. Location Information

    Users of the App: We aggregate and analyse journey start and end points. Assuming you have enabled your device to provide location information and you have not entered your start point manually, we collect and use your start location information as determined through data such as GPS, mobile phone towers, and WiFi. If you have not enabled your device to provide location information, you will have to manually enter your start and end points, which is then the location information we collect and use. We collect your location information throughout your journey. We use this data to provide on-trip support, such as alerting you when to get off a bus and if there is any public transport disruption. We also store and analyse this data in aggregate, as we do with the other types of location data described in this "Location Information" section, to improve the journey results we show to all users and to create and evaluate routes for our transportation services. We also use the information collected in this section to provide more relevant information to you such as local happenings (news), or local suggestions (food suggestions, events and deals) from unusual sightings to interesting things to do near the location provided by you.

b. Device Information

    We collect information about the devices you use to access and use our App, including the type of computer or device you use, the installation ID of the App on your device, the hardware models, operating systems and versions, software, file names and versions, the preferred languages, time zone settings, and device motion information. This information is necessary for us to diagnose bugs and improve the App.

c. Log and Usage Information

    Each time you interact with our App, we collect information about how and when you use it, such as the time and date when you opened the App, the searches you make, the features and journey results you click on, pages visited, app crashes and other system activity. We log user usage screen and click data for analytic purpose and store using Google Firebase and Yahoo Flurry Analytics. We use this information to improve our App in multiple ways. For example, we report crashes that happen in the App to Google Firebase Crashlytic to fix bugs and prevent future crashes, and by knowing what gets tapped or scrolled most often, we can replace unpopular features with other, more helpful features.

3. Information from Other Sources

We partner with ManjaLink ( ) to provide user features such as Manjalink Wallet for the users to keep track of the balance of their card and to reload it. The App collects the following types of information from ManjaLink:

a. User feedback on the App

    We receive feedback from users in the form of ratings, compliments or incidents. We use this feedback to improve the Users’ experience and to help ensure that the App is safe and reliable.

b. Payment information

    In order to pay for your ride or to reload your ManjaLink card through the App, you will need to provide payment information to our third-party service provider such as your credit or debit card details. Ipay88 will be the payment gateway used by ManjaLink.

c. Personal information

    In order for Ipay88 to process the payment and to communicate any issues in relation to payment or to confirm that payment has been successfully made by you, we will provide your e-mail address and phone number to Ipay88.


In summary, we use the information we collect to:

  • Provide and improve our App;
  • Build a profile of your preferences so we can personalise the App and provide you with relevant transport and city information;
  • Recommend alternative and/or similar options that match your stated preferences and previous use of the App;

  • Identify issues with the operation of the App, and provide crash reports in order to find resolution for performance issues;
  • Improve the design, functionality and/or content of the pages of the App and customise them for you;
  • Carry out research on users;

We work hard to improve the App and add functionality, which we think will make it efficient, more fun and more useful for our users. New functionality may involve similar or incidental uses of your data to those set out above. We regularly review the way we use data, and will update our privacy policy to reflect these improvements to the App.


We may share the information collected amongst the companies within our group of entities comprising of the subsidiaries, associate companies (“the Group”) and Group’s agents, third party providers, contractors, developers, advertisers, partners, event companies, sponsors or any other parties duly authorized by the Company and Group who may communicate with you for any reasons whatsoever. In doing so, we will comply with all applicable laws, regulations and industry standards.

To the extent we share information with other companies, we do so to enhance your experience with the App, and we pseudonymise and minimize the data we send to them.​

  • Search Partners: Our search partner is Google in order for the App to send you to the places you want to go. They receive the text you have searched for, and in order to return results most relevant to you, they receive your current location if you have enabled location permission in your device.
  • Analytics Partner: We use Yahoo Flurry and Google Firebase to understand what you've tapped or clicked on the App, and we make features improvements based on this information. They receive information showing only that a person has tapped or used certain features in the App.
  • Crash/Error Reporting Vendors: We use Google Firebase Crashlytics to report on crashes you experience with the App.
  • Messaging Apps: If you choose to use certain sharing features in our App, then you may be sharing your information with those companies, depending on factors such as that company's encryption policies. For example, if you use the "Share Directions" feature in the App, a link with your start and end points will be sent via messaging app. If the messaging app company you choose uses end-to-end encryption, your location link cannot be used or intercepted by that messaging app company.

If you do not wish to have the information collected by us shared with any other third parties (including the Group), kindly inform us by sending your request to the email address specified below.
