Uber has reached a deal with federal regulators who accused the ride-hail company of misrepresenting the way it protected its customer and driver data. It's the latest issue for a company that has been plagued by turmoil this year.

The settlement: The company has agreed to "implement a comprehensive privacy program that addresses privacy risks related to new and existing products and services and protects the privacy and confidentiality of personal information collected by the company." It will also submit to audits of its privacy program for two decades.
