  • mobile network information;
     
  • standard web information, such as your browser type and the pages you access on our Websites;

As it is in our legitimate interests to process your data to provide effective services and useful content to you, we collect this information in order to:

  • personalise our Websites and Apps to ensure content from our Websites and Apps is presented in the most effective manner for you and your device;
     
  • monitor and analyse trends, usage and activity in connection with our Websites, Apps and services and to improve our services;

We receive information from other sources, such as from our group companies, from fraud prevention tools in the case of fraud or suspected fraud, from analytics companies in the case of in car Wi-Fi data usage and in the case of telematics data (including crash/impact detection, GPS location data, vehicle usage/driving style data and odometer readings), from third party data validation tools such as Experian and from publicly accessible data such as Companies House, the Land Registry, the Electoral Register and information you post online.

 

Profiling

  • Fraud prevention: We use a combination of risk screening tools and manual intervention to ensure that customer profiles are not fraudulent. To do this, we match the personal data provided by customers against data fields such as name, email address, mobile phone number, and we use this to accept or decline bookings.
     
  • Marketing: We manually carry out customer segmentation for marketing purposes based on journey history. We use this to make our advertisements more relevant for market segments, such as promoting relevant journey types.

Security of your personal data

 

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via internet or email is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted through the Websites, Apps, over email or via our contact centres; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to safeguard your personal data against loss, theft and unauthorised use, access or modification.

We will, from time to time, host links to and from the websites of our affiliates or third parties. If you follow a link to any of these websites, these websites will have their own privacy policies and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any information to those websites.

How long do we store your personal data?

To determine the retention period of your personal data, we consider several criteria to make sure that we do not keep your personal data for long than is necessary or appropriate. These criteria include:

  • the purpose for which we hold your personal data;
     
  • our legal and regulatory obligations in relation to that personal data, any financial reporting requirements made by regulatory and other local licensing authorities;
     
  • whether our relationship with you is ongoing, for example, you have an active account with one or more of our brands, you continue to receive marketing communications, or you regularly browse or purchase off our Websites/Apps);
     
  • whether you are no longer actively participating or engaging with our brands, for example, you do not open our emails, visit our Websites, or share user generated content;
     
  • any specific requests from you in relation to the deletion of your personal data;
     
  • our legitimate business interests in relation to managing our own rights, for example the defence of any claims.

We will retain your information as follows:

  • your customer profile and account information (including your technical usage data), for 7 years after your last use our services;
     
  • if you contact us via email, we will keep your data for 5 years;
