Taffi Campers Privacy Policy

 

At Taffi Campers we are committed to safeguarding the information you provide us with. In support  of the changes to the European General Data Protection Regulation, known as GDPR, we have updated our privacy policy. Currently the personal details you supplied to Taffi Campers are held for a maximum of 6 months. This is in case of parking or speeding offences. In the event of a parking or speeding offence we will need to send you details to the authorities in order to process the fine and penalties. 

 

If you would like access to your information we will send everything to you within a month of contact. Please contact us at info@tafficampers.co.uk. If you would like us to delete your information, we will do so, providing it does not prevent us from passing potential penalties and offences on to you and the authorities. 

 

We will inform you if our security is ever breached and if your data may be subject to third party viewing. 

 

Please see below for a more detailed privacy policy containing all particulars. 

 

 

What is the purpose of this document? 

Taffi Campers (“we”, “us”, “our”) is committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal information. 

This privacy notice describes how we collect and use personal information about you during and after your working relationship with us, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). 

It applies to all employees, board members, workers, contractors and suppliers. 

We generally do not collect or process personal data belonging to children. If we do, we will only do so where we have a lawful base for collection and processing. 

We are a "data controller". This means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal information about you. We are required under data protection legislation to notify you of the information contained in this privacy notice. 

This notice applies to current and former employees, workers and contractors. This notice does not form part of any contract of employment or other contract to provide services. We may update this notice at any time but if we do so, we will provide you with an updated copy of this notice as soon as reasonably practical. 

It is important that you read and retain this notice, together with any other privacy notice we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal information about you, so that you are aware of how and why we are using such information and what your rights are under the data protection legislation. 

Data protection principles 

We will comply with data protection law. This says that the personal information we hold about you must be: 

    •    Used lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way. 

    •    Collected only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any
way that is incompatible with those purposes. 

    •    Relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes. 

    •    Accurate and kept up to date. 

    •    Kept only as long as necessary for the purposes we have told you about. 

    •    Kept securely.

The kind of information we hold about you 

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). 

There are certain types of more sensitive personal data, which require a higher level of protection, such as information about a person's health or sexual orientation. Information about criminal convictions also warrants this higher level of protection. 

We may collect, store, and use the following categories of personal information about you if you are a customer:

    •    Personal contact details such as name, title, addresses, telephone numbers, personal email addresses, and fax number (if applicable). 

    •    Date of birth. 

    •    Bank account details for repayment of deposit

    •    Rental Agreement and damage report with your signature

    •    Proofs of address 

    •    Driving licence summary of points/offenses/dates. 

    •    Copy of passport

    •    Copy of driving licence.


How is your personal information collected?
We collect personal information about our hirers in order to guarantee their insurance validity on our vehicles.

How we may use information about you 

We will only use your personal information when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we may use your personal information in the following circumstances: 

  1. Inform the insurers you will be hiring the van
  2. Check that the documents you have provided comply with their regulations. 
  3. Passing on the insurance company in the event of a claim.
  4. The breakdown company in the event of a breakdown. 
  5. The accountant in the event of audits. 
  6. The local authorities or police in the event of parking or speeding offenses.

    If you fail to provide personal information
    If you fail to provide certain information when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have entered into with you (such as the rental of our vehicles).
    Change of purpose
    We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
    Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
    How we use particularly sensitive personal information
    "Special categories" of particularly sensitive personal information require higher levels of protection. We need to have further justification for collecting, storing and using this type of personal information. We have in place an appropriate policy document and safeguards which we are required by law to maintain when processing such data. We may process special categories of personal information in the following circumstances: Passing on your information to the insurance company/breakdown services/ accountant/ police and local authorities.

    

Less commonly, we may process this type of information where it is needed in relation to legal claims or where it is needed to protect your interests (or someone else's interests) and you are not capable of giving your consent, or where you have already made the information public. 

Our obligations as a service

We may only use your particularly sensitive personal information in the following ways:

Information about criminal convictions
We may only use information relating to criminal convictions where the law allows us to do so. This will usually be where such processing is necessary to carry out our obligations.
Less commonly, we may use information relating to criminal convictions where it is necessary in relation to legal claims, where it is necessary to protect your interests (or someone else's interests) and you are not capable of giving your consent, or where you have already made the information public.
We may also process such information about members or former members in the course of legitimate business activities with the appropriate safeguards. 

Data sharing 

We may have to share your data with third parties, including insurance companies, breakdown services, accountants and authorities. 

We require third parties to respect the security of your data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We may transfer your personal information outside the EU.
If we do, you can expect a similar degree of protection in respect of your personal information.
Why might you share my personal information with third parties? 

We may share your personal information with third parties where required by law, where it is necessary to administer the working relationship with you or where we have another legitimate interest in doing so. 

Which third-party service providers process my personal information? 

"Third parties" includes third-party service providers (insurance companies, local authorities and the police) and other entities within our group. The following activities are carried out by third-party service providers: insurance services, IT services, and financial service auditors. 

How secure is my information with third-party service providers and other entities in our group? 

All our third-party service providers and other entities in the group are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in line with our policies.

Transferring information outside the EU 

We generally do not transfer your personal data to third parties outside the EEA. However, if/when we ever do transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented: 

    •    We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission. For further details, see European Commission: Adequacy of the protection of personal data in non-EU countries.

    •    Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe. For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries.

    •    Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US. For further details, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.
Data security
We have put in place measures to protect the security of your information. Details of these measures are available upon request or the HRIS System accessible for employees.
Third parties will only process your personal information on our instructions and where they have agreed to treat the information confidentially and to keep it secure.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so. 

Data retention 

How long will you use my information for? 

We may only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. This will be no longer than 6 months.  Generally, we will retain data for the period that it is necessary in order for us to complete a contract with you, or necessary to provide a service or other product/information to you. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. 

Rights of access, correction, erasure, and restriction 

Your duty to inform us of changes 

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate.

Your rights in connection with personal information 

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to: 

    •    Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

    •    Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.

    •    Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).

    •    Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.

    •    Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it. 

    •    Request the transfer of your personal information to another party. If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact us in writing.
No fee usually required
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
What we may need from you
We need proof of your identity and address which we will pass on to our insurers in order to ensure you are insured on the vehicle.
Right to withdraw consent
In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact info@tafficampers.co.uk. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.
