We operate under the General Data Protection Regulations which took effect in law on 25th May 2018 along with a new Data Protection Act (collectively referred to below as the DPA).
What we do
We provide effective management and enforcement of privately-owned car parks and by doing so, entry into one of our managed sites, may result in your personal data being obtained, retained and processed depending on whether a breach of contract has occurred. Our wardens will obtain manual images of vehicles including vehicle registration number and, if you breach the terms of parking, we will use this data to pursue the driver or keeper for outstanding parking charges. Any personal data included in the images that is not relating to the breach, i.e. people or unrelated vehicle registration numbers, will be blacked out. Our presence is also intended to detect and deter criminal activity.

‘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 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 we will obtain include:
- The name and address of the registered keeper;
- The make, model and colour of the vehicle;
- Confirmation of the registration number;
- Any other information that we gather, in pursuance of the unpaid Parking Charge, 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 for the payment of a parking tariff or charge with third parties (such as a payment facilitator), an external software provider, debt recovery companies, solicitors and high court officers/bailiffs where necessary to ensure compliance with your obligations under the contract.
