How we collect your personal information
Wilson Parking Australia 1992 Pty Ltd (‘Wilson’, ‘we’, ‘us’) collects personal information about individuals as part of the course of our business.
Wilson may collect personal information when:
- You (or an organisation you are associated with) opens an account
- Enters into an agreement with us to provide or receive a product or service
- Deals with us over the telephone, sends us a letter or an email
- Visits our website, our mobile apps or when you visit us in person.
The type of information we collect may include (but not exclusive of) your name, mailing address, telephone numbers, your vehicle details, cheque, bank and credit card payment details and email address.
It is our usual practice to collect personal information directly from you.
There may be occasions when we source personal information about you from a third party (for example, a credit reporting agency or marketing company).
Wilson may also automatically collect non personal information through the standard operation of its information systems infrastructure.
Wilson may also obtain personal information from the appropriate transport department in your state as a consequence of orders made by an applicable court in your State. This information is limited to the name and address of the registered owner of a vehicle to which a Parking Breach Notice has been issued, but not paid. The registered owner may then supply Wilson with the name and address of the driver of such a vehicle.
