A female customer calls Taxify to get a ride. The Taxify driver takes her to the place she has requested. Soon after, the woman gets invited out for a drink.

This is what some Taxify drivers do, according to the posts published by customers on Facebook. Slovakia's Office for Personal Data Protection (ÚOOÚ) will most likely check the possible abuse of phone numbers for personal use. If it turns out Taxify drivers have violated the law, the company could be fined millions of euros.
