Unless otherwise agreed with you, we will only collect the minimum personal data required to deliver the service, which includes car registration and contact details.

We consider the processing of the data you provide to be lawful in accordance with Article 6(1)(f), as it is our legitimate interest to be able to demonstrate your proof of payment.

The information will be used to enforce our parking service; our official authority under the Traffic Management Act 2004 (GDPR Article 6(1)(e)).

We will not use your personal information in a way that may cause you unwarranted nuisance.
