    Uber released its first transparency report detailing the information requested by not only United States law enforcement agencies, but also by regulators, Reuters reports.

    The ride-sharing company said in the report, released Tuesday, that between July and December 2015 it provided information on more than 12 million riders and drivers to various U.S. regulators and on 469 users to state and federal law agencies.

    The privately held company, valued at more than $60 billion, said the agencies requested information on trips, trip requests, pickup and drop-off areas, fares, vehicles, and drivers.

    Uber said it got 415 requests from law enforcement agencies, a majority of which came from state governments, and that it was able to provide data in nearly 85 percent of the cases.
