5 Security measures to protect Account Data
5.1 We will implement technical and organisation security measures that are consistent with industry good practice from time to time in order to protect your Account Data from unauthorised access, alteration or destruction. This will include ensuring that your access to the AX Track Portal is by means which are generally regarded as secure for financial transactions. At present these security measures include ensuring access to the AX Track Portal is through a Secure Socket Layer (SSL).
5.2 While we currently use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect your information off-line. All access to Account Data is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer services representative who needs access to answer a specific query from you) are granted access to your Account Data. The servers on which we store your personal information are kept in a secure environment.
5.3 You can tell whether the AX Track Portal is secure as ‘https’ will replace the ‘http’ at the front of the AX Track Portal web address in your browser address window, also a small locked padlock will usually appear in the bottom bar of your browser window or in the address bar of your browser.
5.4 All our security measures assume that You will keep Your Account log on details (your username and Account Password which You use to access the AX Track Portal and AX Track Service) safe and secure. If another person has access to your Account Data, they will be able to log in to the AX Track Portal as You and access all Your Account data. If You believe Your Account Data has become known to another person, contact Us immediately at [email protected] You can also change Your Account Data using the AX Track Portal (including your Account Password) and you should do this immediately if you believe your Account Password has been compromised, to ensure that Your Account Data remains secure.
5.5 "Phishing" is the practice of tricking someone into giving confidential information. Examples include falsely claiming to be a legitimate company when sending an email to a user, in an attempt to get the user to send private information that will be used for identity theft and fraud.
5.6 AX Track will never ask you to send Us any of your personal details by email. If we require such details, for security reasons we will ask you to contact Us by telephone. Should you receive an email claiming to be from AX Track requesting this kind of information please do not respond but contact Us immediately at [email protected] instead.
6 Amendment, Deletion and Records of Account Data
6.1 If You think Your Account Data is incorrect, or if you need to make changes to Your Account Data (such as Your address or contact details), we will endeavour to provide a way to correct, update or remove Your Account Data. This can easily be done through the edit functions on the AX Track Portal.
6.2 If You wish to delete any or all of your Account Data, contact Us at [email protected]
6.3 If you no longer have your Vehicle please log on to Your Account and notify us. Do not pass any part of your Account Data to the purchaser as part of the sale of the Vehicle. If you disclose your details to the purchaser, the purchaser will be able to access your Account Data (which may include details of journeys etc.).
6.4 Where You delete your Account Data we may retain backups of the data for a reasonable period afterwards, and may use this data for business continuity, compliance with legal requirements relating to tax, record keeping and audit, and may hand over the data to law enforcement agencies where required to do so.
7 Aggregated Data
7.1 An anonymised set of Data captured by the AX Track Unit fitted to your Vehicle may be used for purposes other than the provision of the AX Track Service (such as traffic analysis). Should this occur all personal data will be removed so that aggregated data can be used rather than data relating to a particular individual.
