Member privacy

At Gomates we respect your privacy and only share information as needed to make your carpool trips successful.

Members of your carpool group can see:

  • your display name
  • your group role (Member, Assistant Coordinator, or Coordinator)
  • your trip participation as passenger or driver
  • your child’s name alongside yours when the child is a passenger

Leaders of your carpool group can also see your email.

You can opt in to show your email, phone number, and address to group members. This can be helpful for contacting each other and when your trip involves picking up or dropping off at home.
