  4. Processing of Special Categories of Personal Data and Criminal Conduct Data

    Some types of personal data are considered to be sensitive and are accorded greater protection under data protection legislation. These include:
    • "Special Categories of Personal Data" which include personal data that reveals racial or ethnic origin, political opinion, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data in order to uniquely identify a person or data concerning health, sex life and sexual orientation. Data concerning health covers Personal Data relating to the physical or mental health of an individual which reveals information about the individual's health status; and

    • "Criminal Conduct Data" which is Personal Data relating to criminal convictions or offences or related security measures.

    As a general rule, we do not process Special Categories of Personal Data or Criminal Conduct Data. However, in order to perform our obligations as the registered owner of the vehicle and provide our services effectively, we might be required to process sensitive information about drivers in the following limited circumstances:

    • Health/medical information: We may process health information in the course of providing services in response to an accident or Vehicle damage/loss. This is due to the fact that we may receive accident reports in our capacity as the registered owner of the vehicle and these reports sometimes contain a small amount of health/medical information. We are not in control of the content of these reports, which will in some cases also be used for insurance purposes.

      This health information may be shared with law enforcement agencies, insurers or impacted parties, in the event of an accident or a potential legal claim.

       

    • Criminal Conduct Data: As the vehicle is considered to be a source of increased danger and causing a traffic accident may lead to criminal charges to a driver or the vehicle might be involved criminal activities, we may receive requests and information relating to criminal offences and possible offences of drivers from law enforcement agencies or courts, which may arise in correspondence that is incidental to our role as the registered owner of the vehicle.

      Personal data may be shared for this purpose with law enforcement agencies or courts to advise that a Vehicle leased to you may be involved.

    We do not process above mentioned information by any other means or for any other purpose.

  5. How long do we keep your personal information?

    Personal data is kept by ALD Automotive SIA, in an active base, for the time necessary to achieve the objective pursued at the time of their collection.

    The retention period is therefore initially set by ALD Automotive SIA according to the operational needs necessary for the execution of each individual rental contract and taking into consideration any recommendations of the local Data protection authority.

    However, certain longer retention periods may result from legislative and regulatory texts. Some laws also require that documents/information containing personal data be retained for a specific period of time for evidentiary purposes or in anticipation of possible litigation until the action in question is time-barred. For example, a general limitation period for bringing civil claims is ten years.  ALD is therefore obliged to keep certain personal data beyond the execution of the lease contracts, even though it no longer has any use for them, in the form of so-called intermediate archives.

    In case of litigation, we may keep your personal information until the end of such legal action, including any potential periods for appeal. We will then either delete or archive it according to the law in force.

    At the end of these periods, the personal data is:

    => deleted; or
    => archived; or
    => anonymized.

  6. Who ALD Automotive SIA may share your personal data with.

    ALD understand that you do not want us to provide your personal information directly to third parties for their own marketing purposes without your consent. However, ALD occasionally need to use partners or processors to provide you with the requested services and a better experience, for the purposes described above. We therefore limit our sharing of your personal information on a need-to-know basis as follows:
    • with internal business departments such as sales, customer care/quality department, marketing, IT services, support and maintenance. Inside the ALD Automotive Group, we may share your personal data with other ALD Automotive entities, who may only use your personal information in compliance with this Policy.  

    • with our service providers, such as data hosting service providers, call centers, data administrators, vehicle manufacturer/dealer, maintenance and breakdown service providers, vehicle recovery tracing agents, vehicle delivery and collection agents, third parties who provide maintenance and servicing of any vehicles you hire as part of the service located in Estonia or within the European Economic Area and instructed to only use your personal information in accordance with our instructions.

    • with unaffiliated partners, such as banks, our insurers and professional advisers etc.

    • where needed to affect the sale or transfer of business assets, in connection with a bankruptcy proceeding, to enforce our rights, protect our property, or protect the rights, property or safety of others, or as needed support external auditing, compliance and corporate governance functions. 

    • when required to do so by law, such as in response to a subpoena, including to police, law enforcement agencies and courts in the countries where we operate.

    • with a person to whom we assign our rights under your Agreement.

  7. Export of personal data outside of the EEA

    In general, all of the ALD databases are located inside the European Union. However, ALD may transfer your personal data from the Europe to countries within or outside the European Economic Area. The countries outside of the EEA may not provide the same level of protection as is available in the EEA. If we transfer your personal data outside the EEA, we will ensure that adequate levels of protection are in place in relation to the processing of your personal data.

    However, certain countries outside the EEA have been approved by the European Commission as providing essentially equivalent protections to EEA data protection laws and therefore no additional safeguards are required to export personal data to these jurisdictions. These countries are listed online at:
