In some circumstances your data may be retained for a period in excess of 6 years. Such circumstances may include:

Should you be parked fully in accordance with the advertised Terms and Conditions of Parking, the personal data we may obtain is your vehicle registration number.

Where your data is obtained, it may be retained for a period not exceeding 3 months.
