2. Information which we may share with third parties

We share information on your parking events to those parking providers in whose areas and facilities you park. This information may be used for parking management, planning, and enforcement purposes.

Payment processing including credit card and debit card details are securely stored by our payment processing providers (currently Realex Payments, Elavon US, and Elavon Ireland) and are used for processing payments to GoParkit.

We only disclose Your Information as follows:

  • to parking providers in whose areas and facilities you park. This information may be used for parking management, planning, and enforcement purposes
  • to any suppliers and subcontractors (including payment providers) in order to fulfil the service;
  • if we (or a part of our business) are acquired by a third party, Your Information may be one of the transferred assets;
  • to any relevant public authority or law enforcement agency, including for example where we suspect you have committed a criminal offence or we suspect fraud where required by law, regulation or legal proceedings;
  • in order to enforce or apply Terms and Conditions, Customer Agreement, or any other agreement to which you and we are a party, as applicable;
  • unless you have told us that you do not want to receive marketing communications, to third parties engaged by us to provide you with marketing communications about our products and services. This may also include social media platforms where we provide limited information about our users (e.g. their email address) to the social media platform so they can provide to us an anonymous demographic profile of our users with profiles on that platform to inform our targeted marketing activities on that platform; and
  • to third parties from whom you have chosen to receive marketing information.

You should take care when using any GoParkit social networking features since the information you choose to make available can be seen by other users in the selected group. We do not monitor the use of such features in the normal course of business although we reserve the right to do so at our discretion.

Your Information may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination within the United States of America or the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA or the US who work for Us or for one of Our suppliers. We will ensure any data export is undertaken in accordance with relevant data protection laws and take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that Your Information is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

3. How do we protect Your Information?

All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers. We gather and transfer payments information using secure webpages and secure transmission using SSL Secure Sockets Layer.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of the Service, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect Your Information, we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to the Service; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received Your Information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

GoParkit is registered with the Trustwave TrustKeeper® PCI Manager program. Our payment processors are PCI DSS1 certified.

5. Cookies and other data storage devices

We do use certain cookies as part of our GoParkit services. The cookies used are session cookies for the purpose of enabling you to use the service (for example to enable you to complete a registration or access information). You can choose to disable cookies (through your browser settings) although you should be aware that this may prevent you from being able to use all parts of GoParkit. The E-Privacy Directive asks businesses to make their online customers aware of cookie usage, so that customers may opt out if they prefer. For more information on cookies and how to disable them see www.allaboutcookies.com.

We may amend this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect changes to the Service, including additional products or services offered by us. We will give you reasonable notice of any changes to the privacy policy. This privacy policy was last updated in September 2014.

6. Applicable law
