Names and addresses of our customers may also be provided to a mailing house to mail account statements to each customer, and to debt collection agencies to collect outstanding debts.
We may also use or disclose personal information for other purposes such as helping us to identify products and services that may interest you.
If we have obtained personal information from your state transport authority as mentioned above, we only use that information to contact you to determine whether to commence proceedings in relation to those particular Parking Breach Notice(s), and to commence proceedings if necessary. We are not permitted and do not use the information for any other purpose.
