Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it is treated securely.

All information transmitted from forms on the car parking website is secured in transit using not less than 128bit keys. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear on one end of the address bar next to the url (web address).

Non-sensitive details (your email address, etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its secure on our systems.
