International transfer of Personal Data
The processing of Personal Data by Parkpnp, or the disclosure of Personal Data to third parties as set out above, may include overseas transfers outside the EEA to countries whose data protection laws are not as comprehensive as those within the EEA. In accordance with Data Protection Law, we shall only transfer personal data to recipients offering an adequate level of data protection.

Lawful basis for processing Personal Data
We rely on the following legal bases under GDPR in processing Personal Data:
- consent (when engaging with Clients and/or End Users in registering for the Services);
- performance of a contract with you (specifically to administer End Users and/or Clients’ parking requirements);
- compliance with legal obligations (e.g. lawful law enforcement requests);
- legitimate interests (e.g. in the event of a complaint or legal action being taken against Parkpnp).
For the first two uses in the above section, we rely on the legal basis that the processing of the personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract, specifically to administer End Users and/or Clients’ parking requirements. If the required personal data is not provided, we cannot finalise the parking facility, nor can we provide customer service. For uses 3 to 7 above, we rely on Article 6(1)(f) of GDPR, which provides that we can process personal data where processing “is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights or freedoms of you which require protection of personal data.
If necessary and where applicable, we also rely on compliance with legal obligations (such as lawful law enforcement requests).
Note that we may process your personal data in reliance on different lawful grounds depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your Personal Data at that time. Please contact us if you need details about the specific legal ground we are relying on to process your Personal Data in a particular instance.
We will also obtain your consent where required under applicable law prior to processing your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes. You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by contacting us.
Change of purpose
We will only use your Personal Data 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 you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.
If we need to use your Personal Data 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 Data for purposes other than which we collected it where this is required by law.
Failure to provide Personal Data
Where we need to collect personal data in order to provide the Services to you or to the Client, and you do not provide or agree to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to provide the Services and/or perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you. In this case, we may have to cancel a service you have with us.
Security and storage of your Personal Data
Parkpnp takes all necessary steps to ensure the protection and privacy of Personal Data in accordance with the requirements of Data Protection Law. Parkpnp regularly reviews and implements new security and encryption technologies and has put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information collected.
While all necessary steps are taken to ensure the safety of your information, unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed total security. While we do strive to protect all information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you give to Parkpnp or obtain from our online services and products. Therefore, the transmission of data as part of the Services is at your own risk. However, once your information does come into our possession – we take all reasonable actions to protect your information from unauthorised access, loss or misuse. We also strive to protect that information from modification or disclosure. If we find that a security breach has occurred, we have procedures to minimise the effects and we may liaise with you (Client and End User) and the Office of the Data Protection Commission, as appropriate in accordance with the requirements of Data Protection Law.
How long do we keep your Personal Data?
The period for which we retain Personal Data varies according to the use of that information. In some cases, there are legal requirements to keep Personal Data for a minimum period of time. Unless specific legal requirements dictate otherwise, we will retain Personal Data no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the Personal Data were collected and processed (as described above). The following are the terms of our data retention policies and procedures:
Your Personal Data will be retained for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. Parkpnp will retain your Personal Data for as long as we continue to provide our Services to you. Following termination of the provision of the Services, your Personal Data shall be retained for as long as is necessary and permissible in accordance with statutory limitation periods.

Parkpnp’s website: How we use aggregate data & collect and share information
How we use aggregate data
Parkpnp collects non-personal information as aggregate data such as how website users utilise our website. For example, we monitor the number of visits to our site, we track the number of visits to certain pages on our site, and the domain names of our users’ internet service provider.
This aggregate data allows us to examine trends and gather insights that would not be readable if the elements of data were viewed in isolation. It is a means that allows us to understand the workings of our website and services, and in turn, this allows us to improve and enhance our services. We may also use this data with our partners to improve our educational and employment services.
This information does not constitute Personal Data for the purposes of Data Protection Law.
IP (Internet Provider) Address
Your IP address is supplied to Parkpnp through our web servers. This aids us in diagnosing problems or support issues with our servers.

We use tracking software to monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the websites. This software does not enable us to capture any Personal Data.
When acting as data controller, Parkpnp seeks to ensure that the information we hold is accurate, correct and up to date. If the information we hold about you is inaccurate or out of date, or if you would like your details removed from our website, please contact [email protected] This will allow us take reasonable steps to address or discuss alternative options with you.
Your Data Protection Rights
Subject to certain limited exceptions, you have the right to the following from Parkpnp:
Request information about whether we hold Personal Data about you, and, if so, what that Personal Data is and why we are holding/using it.
Request access to your Personal Data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the Personal Data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of the Personal Data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate Personal Data we hold about you corrected.
Request erasure of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove Personal Data 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 Data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
Object to processing of your Personal Data 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 Data for direct marketing purposes.
Object to automated decision-making including profiling, that is not to be subject of any automated decision-making by us using your Personal Data or profiling of you.
Request the restriction of processing of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of Personal Data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
Request transfer of your Personal Data in an electronic and structured form to you or to another party (commonly known as a right to “data portability”). This enables you to take your data from us in an electronically useable format and to be able to transfer your data to another party in an electronically useable format.
Withdraw consent. In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your Personal Data for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. In circumstances where we act as data controller over the personal data and we receive 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.
If you want to exercise any of these rights, then please contact our Privacy Officer at [email protected]
Note that in circumstances where Services are provided under ParkOffice, the above requests should be directed to our Client, as data controller.
Where we act as data controller, you will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data (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.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
