also, this in 4.5.4
" Push Notifications should not be used for promotions or direct marketing purposes unless customers have explicitly opted in to receive them via consent language displayed in your app’s UI..."
I think this is the first time I've left a negative review for bad behavior.
It started with Uber Eats spamming me with coupons through at least 5 SMS a day that I the app wouldn't let me use. When contacting support, they shrugged me off.
Then,months later, I was out for errands and with no mobile data. I called my girlfriend and asked her to call an Uber for me. After waiting for an hour of drivers literally not even moving, or canceling while still 3 blocks away, I gave up and called a cab. When I got home she was in a fight with support, because apparently the passanger wasn't wearing a mask and that could get her suspended. Needless to say, that was complete bull because I was never even 500m of any Uber driver.
I don't know what this law is, but as petty as it sounds, I hope doesn't pass and this company dies.
It is also a little strange that the app is nagging me to go home. I'm out and enjoying myself and the app is telling me to go home? As if I will look down and see that it will now take me 43 minutes to go home instead of the usual 45 and that would be the final straw that will cause me to end my night.
You either have a village idiot making decisions (which I doubt) or some smuck is under huge pressure from managers to do anything for growth so will sacrifice a good experience.
They are desperate, Uber will not survive if Prop 22 fails.
But complying with the law is antithetical to Uber's culture, so it's not surprising that the thought of obeying the law never crossed their minds.
