This Privacy Policy explains what personal data we collect, how we use your personal data, reasons we may need to disclose your personal data to others and how we store your personal data securely.

For clarity, in the context of this document Road Tech is a data controller.

Data Protection law

Data protection law is changing and this document is being updated to reflect these changes.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was passed in the European Parliament in 2016 and will come into effect on May 25th 2018.

Who are we?

Road Tech is a provider of software services, based at Shenley Hall, Shenley, Rectory Lane, Hertfordshire, WD7 9AN.

Road Tech have a registered office at c/o Hillier Hopkins, Radius House, 51 Clarendon Road, WATFORD, WD17 1HP, Company Registration Number 2017435. Registered in England and Wales. ICO Registration Number Z9023540 since 15/04/2005.

For the purposes of the GDPR we are a small company with less than 250 employees.

We do not fall within the groups listed in Article 37.1 of the GDPR and therefore will not be appointing a DPO at this time.

Rationale: Road Tech Computer Systems Ltd is not a public authority so 37.1a does not match. Our core activity is selling software solutions to the transport industry. Population of EU as of January 2017 was 512 million.

Customers, and transport organizations who have expressed an interest amount to approximately 25,000. Ignoring the fact that we trade on a business to business basis, and assuming that all had provided details of a natural person this would amount to less than 0.005% of the EU population. Therefore does not meet the “large scale” item in 37.1b, or 37.1c.

We do not engage in the regular or systematic monitoring of customers article 37.1b, or in their criminal activity; 37.1c.

The transport operations that are our customers, use us as a data processor to process event data on their drivers. In aggregate as of January 2017 this amounts in total to data on 110,000 drivers. Presuming no duplicates this represents 0.023% of European population. This may grow significantly and therefore will need to be reviewed.
