The British drivers whose legal victory against Uber Technologies Inc. upended the U.K.’s gig economy are now trying to get access to the data the ride-sharing app stores on them.

Former Uber drivers James Farrar and Yaseen Aslam, who founded the App Drivers & Couriers Union, got mixed results in an Amsterdam District Court ruling on Thursday. The court will require the ride-hailing giant to provide drivers with anonymous ratings information from riders, and additional information on two drivers whose accounts were deactivated. But the court wouldn’t give them information about how prices are calculated, notes that Uber staff add to their profiles, or require the company to pay compensation.
