This privacy policy (this “Policy”) describes the policies and procedures regarding our collection, use, and sharing of this information. 


By providing information to us or by using our products or services, including this Site or a mobile app, you agree to our collection, use and sharing of your information as described in this Policy.

Personal information” means personally identifiable information, such as your name, email address, and telephone number. Aggregated data, de-identified data, and other information that is related to you but is studied as a group or does not otherwise identify you specifically (such as information collected through cookies, pixel tags and other technologies) is not considered to be personal information.

When you sign up for an account with FF or make a reservation, we may also collect personal information from you directly. We may also collect your personal information from offline sources, such as when you provide your information to an FF representative over the phone or in person.

We and our third-party vendors use both first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) as well as third-party cookies (such as the Google Advertising cookie). Cookies allow us to collect information such as websites you visited before browsing our Site, pages you viewed on our Site, the number of times you accessed our Site, the amount of time you spent on our Site, and other web traffic data. We also use cookies to conduct analytics on our Site and for marketing purposes, as described further below. If you do not wish to have your information collected by using cookies, you can disable cookies (or specific cookies) by adjusting your browser settings. Note that if you remove or reject our cookies, it may affect how our Site works for you. Many browsers are set to accept cookies until you change your settings.
  • Information Collected Using Other Tracking Tools: In addition to or in conjunction with cookies, we may use other tracking tools to improve your experience on our Site. For example, pixel tags (also known as clear GIFs, web bugs, or web beacons) are used to track the online movements of users of our Site. Pixel tags and similar tools may also be used in our emails to track whether an email has been read or forwarded to someone else.

Data Security

We are committed to maintaining the security of the personal information you provide us. However, while we are focused on the security of your personal information, you must remember that the Internet is a global communications vehicle open to threats, viruses, and intrusions from others. For this reason, we cannot promise that we will be able to protect your personal information at all times and in all circumstances, and we cannot completely guarantee the security and privacy of transmissions via the Internet. You agree that you will not hold FF liable for any damages resulting from any loss of privacy or security occurring in connection with any such communications. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the “Contact Information” section below.


Choices About Your Information; Updating Your Information

As indicated throughout this Policy, you have options to control how your information is used, including:

  • Opting-Out of Communications: Our newsletters, promotional emails, and promotional text messages include instructions for opting out of receiving further communications. You may also opt out of marketing communications by contacting us via the “Contact Information” section below. Please note that even if you opt out of receiving marketing communications, we may still communicate with you regarding non-marketing-related matters, such as our business dealings with you, notifications and information relating to your account, and other transactional messages.
  • Updating Your Personal Information or Cancelling an Account With FF: If you have signed up for an account with FF, you may review and update the personal information associated with your account by signing in to your My Account dashboard. You may also cancel your account at any time by contacting us at product@faradayfuture.com. We may ask you to verify your identity and to provide other details before we cancel your account or delete any information. Your right to delete information is subject to our record retention policy, including any retention requirements under applicable laws.

Tracking; Third Party Analytics Providers

Our Site may use tracking and third-party analytics providers:

  • Do Not Track Disclosure: When you visit our Site, we may collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services, including through use of third-party analytics service providers. Certain web browsers may provide an option by which you may ask your browser to inform websites you visit that you do not wish your activities to be tracked by cookies or other persistent identifiers, commonly called “Do Not Track Signals.” Our Site currently does not change its tracking practices in response to the Do Not Track Signals from your browser.
  • Third Party Analytics Providers; Google Analytics; Google Analytics Advertising Features:  We work with third party analytics service providers, including but not limited to Google Analytics and AB Tasty, to help us better understand how you use our Site. For example, we use Google Analytics to learn more about the types of users that visit our Site and to help improve our Site. Google Analytics provides us with certain data regarding the demographics of the users that visit our Site. To provide this service, Google Analytics may collect certain information about you from your computer, including but not limited to: information regarding your visit (such as the pages you visit and the length of your visit), information about your device (such as your IP address), how you got to our Site, information regarding where you saw our online advertisements and which advertisements you clicked on, and other information about you. We also use Google Analytics Advertising Features for marketing purposes, including Remarketing with Google Analytics, which allow us to display promotional advertisements regarding FF to you on other sites you visit across the Internet. You can learn more about Google Analytics and how it collects and processes data (including how to control the information sent to Google) by visiting: www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. You can opt-out of Google Analytics by using the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/, or by disabling cookies on your browser. You can opt-out of your data being used by Google Analytics Advertising Features via Google’s Ads Settings page, available at http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/, Ad Settings for mobile apps, or any other available means (e.g., the NAI’s consumer opt-out, available at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices). Because these opt-out pages are specific to the individual browser, and because these pages are not operated by FF, we are unable to perform the opt-outs on your behalf. You can also opt-out of AB Tasty’s collection of information by disabling cookies on your browser or by adding the setting #abtastyoptout=1 at the end of the URL of the website you are visiting (e.g., https://www.ff.com/#abtastyoptout=1 ). This option will not delete pre-existing cookies, but it will prevent updates by AB Tasty and therefore no new data will be collected by AB Tasty. 

California Residents: Your California Privacy Rights

If you are a California resident, you may have the right to request and receive certain information about our disclosure of your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes, and your choices with respect to such disclosures. Because it is our policy not to share your personal information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes unless you are first given the opportunity to opt out from such sharing, we are exempt from having to meet this requirement. If you still wish to learn more about our compliance with this requirement, please contact us.

The data protection and privacy laws of such other countries, including the U.S., may not afford you the same level of protection as those in your own country. Do not provide your personal information to us if you do not want this information to be transferred outside of your country, or if the laws in your country restrict these types of transfers. Your provision of personal information to us will be handled in accordance with this Policy. By doing business or interacting with FF, by using our Site, or by otherwise providing personal information to us, you agree to the terms of this Policy and are consenting to the transfer, storage, and processing of your personal information to and within facilities located in the U.S. and other facility locations selected by FF.
