WHO WE ARE

Our Data Protection Officer can be contacted by emailing dpo@hx-pcn.com or by calling 03330 066 316.

We operate under the General Data Protection Regulations which legally came into effect on 25th May 2018 along with a new Data Protection Act (collectively referred to below as the DPA).

Whilst we are a corporate member of the British Parking Association, we are accredited by the Accredited Trade Association (ATA), the International Parking Company (IPC). They are a DVLA approved Accredited Operator Scheme (AOS) and focus on continually improving the standards within the private parking industry. They carry out thorough office audits, and also remotely audit each site and sign before an operator is able to issue PCNs on behalf of a landowner.

WHAT WE DO

We monitor the entry and exit of our privately managed ANPR or CCTV car park sites. At times, we may also utilise wardens on our ANPR sites to effectively manage these privately-owned car parks. Images of people and vehicles, including vehicle registration numbers, will be obtained to confirm the length of stay and enforce non-compliance of the terms and conditions of entry on to our privately-owned sites.

We may at times, also utilise wardens on our ANPR sites to effectively manage these privately-owned car parks. Our wardens will obtain manual images to gather evidence of any vehicles parked outside of the terms and conditions, these photos will include the vehicle registration number and may include people. 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.

  2. We are entitled to:

THE THREE CATEGORIES OF “PERSONAL DATA”

1) If parked within the terms and conditions of the car park for the full duration of your stay

As a compliant user of our privately managed car parking site, the personal data we obtain is your registration number. We may capture images of the vehicle, occupants or bystanders. A full list of your Rights under GDPR are summarised above. Where your data is obtained it will be retained for 3 months only. We then erase your registration and any other images from our records.

2) Unpaid Parking Charge

Where there is a Parking Charge which is payable we may request personal details of the registered keeper of the vehicle from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency “DVLA” and other third parties (for example the registered keeper or hire companies where applicable) who may possess information which could assist in resolving any dispute.

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.

3) 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.

Sensitive personal data may also be received. This is only done through the consent of the keeper/driver if you feel this will aid in the processing of your appeal. If you would not like us to retain this data, a Right to Erasure request can be made to the data team

From time to time we may amend the way in which we process personal data. This may lead to changes in how we collect and/or use your personal information. We may amend the terms of this Privacy Policy at any time.
