Personal information is information or an opinion, whether true or not, that identifies an individual, or information that can be used to identify an individual.
You can browse our online services anonymously.
When you start the Safe Driver Today Quiz, you will be asked for your fist name. If you give us your real name, we will collect that information. You can use an alias. At the end of the quiz, you will be invited to give us your email address if you’d like more information about driver safety. At that point we will collect your email address. Your email address and your name together are personal information.
Collecting personal information
At all times we aim to only collect the information we need to deliver the service we are providing. The main way we collect personal information about you is when you give it to us, for example:
- when you complete our Safe Driver Today Quiz
- when you use the contact us form on our website
- when you call us, or contact us via social media
- when you ask for access to information we hold about you
You agree that we may retain any of your personal information for a period of seven years for compliance purposes, although we are not obliged to do so.
Social Networking Services and links to other websites
We may provide links to other websites or use social networking services such as Facebook to communicate with the public about driver safety. Social media platforms have their own privacy policies. When you communicate with us using those services we may collect your personal information. We will only use it to help us to communicate with you and the public. The social media platform will also handle your personal information for its own purposes.
We only collect personal information directly from you. We do not collect information from other sources.
Collecting sensitive information
For privacy purposes, sensitive information can include information about health, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or criminal history. When you complete our Safe Driver Today Quiz, you will be asked for information about your age, and whether you use medication when driving. We do not ask for specific details, and you can complete the quiz without providing your real name. We will take steps to appropriately protect any sensitive information we do receive.
A person under the age of 18 years can complete our Safe Driver Today Quiz. They do not need to provide personal information. If a person under the age of 18 years requests further information about save driving, we will use the email address they provide to deliver that information. We do not actively collect information about people under the age of 18 years.
