Personal Data we Process
Postal Parking Charge
If you have received a Parking Charge Notice by post, we will have previously obtained your personal details, which will include images of your vehicle, its location and the vehicle registration number. We will also have obtained personal details of the registered keeper of the vehicle from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA).
The personal details received from the DVLA include:
- The name and address of the registered keeper.
- The make, model and colour of the vehicle.
- Confirmation of the vehicle registration number.
- Any other information that we gather, in pursuance of the unpaid fee, including information that is shared by you with us.
Your data will be held for sufficient time to enable the fee to be settled, by you or another person, and resolve any dispute. However, your data will not normally be held for longer than 6 years in such circumstances. In some circumstances your data may be held for longer than 6 years. Examples of when we may hold your data for longer are:
- When there is an ongoing dispute which requires us to hold the data for longer than normal.
- Where a court order has been made allowing us to pursue outstanding money after the expiration of 6 years.
If you decide to appeal a Parking Charge Notice and we decline your appeal, then we will provide your registration number and Parking Charge Notice reference, along with the time and date of the parking event to the Independent Appeals Service (IAS) and/or the International Parking Committee (IPC). This is to allow you to contest the charge with an independent adjudicator.
Sharing your Personal Data
Your personal data may be shared to recover monies owed from a parking charge with third parties such as a payment facilitator, an external software provider, debt recovery companies, solicitors, and court officers/bailiffs where necessary to ensure compliance with your obligations under the contract.
