Our Data Protection Officer can be contacted by emailing dpo@responsibleparkingmanagement.co.uk.

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.

Appeals

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.
