We install and maintain street furniture, provide outdoor and transit advertising services, and operate public bicycle hire schemes.

This may include your name, billing and delivery address, credit card details, email address, contact phone numbers, age, the operating system of your computer, your elected user name and password, driver's licence number, date of birth and mother's maiden name.
Generally, all Personal Information is collected directly from you, or with your consent, and our policy is to collect only Personal Information that we need for a particular purpose. The circumstances in which we may collect Personal Information from you include when you:

We may also collect Personal Information from publicly available sources or where we are legally obliged to do so.
We do not need to collect Sensitive Information about you in order to provide you with services. If we do collect sensitive information, we will only do so with your consent.
Personal Information collected about you is only used in order to:

We may use such information for our own internal business purposes or to improve our products and services. We may also disclose such de-identified information to third parties including consultants, suppliers, partners, customers or potential customers. If you do not wish for us to collect or use de-identified data from you in this way, please contact our Privacy Officer whose contact details are set out below.

We take reasonable steps to ensure the security of Personal Information held by us from such risks as loss or unauthorised access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure.

We collect Personal Information online. We use multi-layered encryption methods to transmit your credit card information so that it will not be intercepted or tampered with during transmission. However, you should be aware that the Internet is not a secure environment, and transmission of Personal Information over the Internet is at your own risk.
Information will only be held for as long as the relevant laws allow us to hold it. Following the expiry of any such period, it will either be destroyed or returned to you, as appropriate.
We take reasonable steps to make sure that the Personal Information we collect, use and disclose is accurate, complete and up-to-date. You may request access to the information we hold about you. If you would like to access your Personal Information, please contact our Privacy Officer (details below), who will explain how we will handle your access request, and whether there will be any associated charge.
We will assume (unless you tell us otherwise) that your request for access relates to our current records about you. These current records include Personal Information about you which is included in our databases and in paper files, and which may be used by us on a day to day basis. We may, but are not obliged to, archive any out of date Personal Information.
If you believe that Personal Information about you is not accurate, complete or up to date, please provide our Privacy Officer with your request for correction (contact details are set out below). We will consider any requests for correction in a timely way.
