Parquery and GDPR: Everything you need to know

 

As developer or project manager you’ve probably had some experience with the GDPR, the European Union’s new data protection law, particularly if you’ve been involved with new technical solutions for cameras.

We know the GDPR can seem complex, and sometimes difficult to interpret for the specific technology you’re looking to onboard. We also know your legal team will probably want proof that any new solution you introduce is already GDPR-compliant.

We’re here to help.

Parquery will help answer your GDPR questions and streamline your internal legal processes for smart parking solutions. We’re dedicated to 100% transparency on GDPR issues, and we will put your mind at ease.

Review the information below, or contact us to learn more about our role in data processing data, what we do to guarantee GDPR compliance, and what we will expect of you when you work with us.

For now, let’s make sure we share the proper terms. When we talk about “personal data,” we mean all information that refers directly or indirectly to a natural living person. Examples of personal data include images of faces or car license plate numbers.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Parquery's Engineering department processes the data received from the customer.

No. There is no automated processing of data used to evaluate, analyse or predict aspects relating to work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements (profiling).

No. Parquery neither collect nor process personal data.

Images from the cameras belong to the customer. The customer conveys images by internet connection to carry out an analysis either locally or on the cloud. Vehicles in the image cannot be identified. Additionally, no personal data is visible in the images (Privacy-by-design).

Parquery uses images from cameras only to detect the presence of vehicles. Parquery does not identify these vehicles.

In most cases, vehicles in the image cannot be distinguished. In the rare cases when number plates are visible in the image, Parquery does not store images, unless specifically asked by customers. In this case, images can also be blurred so that data remains anonymized. In all cases, Parquery helps customers to make sure that no personal data is analyzed in the images. There is no privacy violation.

Privacy-by-design is implemented.

  • Generally, images do not contain private data recognizable on the image.
  • In the rare case when number plates can be seen, then Parquery can blur this data in images. Parquery helps customers to guarantee that no private data is analyzed from images.
  • Parquery does not store images, unless specifically requested by customers.
  • All images can be analyzed directly on the customer's site. They are automatically deleted after processing, and no image is sent to Parquery. The process is absolutely GDPR compliant.

No. No private data is provided to third-parties.

Some parking managers inform customers on the reason for the presence of cameras.

Parking managers display reason for Parquery cameras
The board reads: "Parking duration: max. 1 hour. The parking duration is monitored with cameras".

Parquery is the data controller. They determine the purposes for which and the means by which data is processed.

Parquery is fully GDPR compliant.

  • Generally, images do not contain private data.
  • In the rare case when number plates can be seen, then Parquery can blur this data in images. Parquery supports customers to make sure that the process is entirely GDPR-compliant.
  • Parquery does not store images, unless specifically requested by customers.
  • All images can be analyzed directly on the customer's site. Images are then automatically deleted after processing, and no image is sent to Parquery.

There is no privacy violation.

Parquery on-premise

 

Sometimes company policies do not provide authorization to run provider software on cloud servers. In this case, Parquery can install its software on the customer’s premises: images from cameras are sent to this local server, where they are processed and then deleted, and the data results are sent on to your facility manager(s). No image will ever leave your premises, and you do not risk any privacy violations.

 

Don’t worry: we anonymize.

 

There are two main data issues when dealing with smart parking: individual people recognition (i.e. face images) and car license plate identification.

We anonymize both.

We’ve developed an encryption algorithm that automatically detects and blurs plate numbers and people’s faces, anonymizing their information.

 

Parquery anonymizes all private data on images.
When required, Parquery applies a blurring component on any private data images before analyzing images. Images are therefore anonymized before being processed.

We don't store images

 

We don’t store images. We detect objects in images as soon as we receive them, then delete the images and send the data results to the client via API or a Dashboard.

 

In the event a client requests image accessibility for a given time period – for example six hours, in order to have proof that individual customers have parked longer than the agreed-upon period – we can store the images for facility managers and display them via the Dashboard.

As a parking manager, what do you need to do to be GDPR-compliant?
