Individuals entering a premise protected by Forecourt Eye can clearly view signage stating that Forecourt Eye is in operation. The signage discourages customers from drawing fuel unless they have the means to pay for it immediately and explains the Forecourt Eye terms and conditions of failing to do so. When an SOI leaves the forecourt after withdrawing fuel or goods without making payment and fails to advise the forecourt owner, their vehicle registration will be sent to the DVLA and keeper details are requested. We will also process CCTV still images of the vehicle, registration plate, the occupants and any other personal details to allow for the fuel and other outstanding fees to be pursued. We may also upload some or all of this data to crime prevention/detection/ recording/alert systems utilised for the prevention and detection of crime.
The lawful basis for the processing is performance of a contract to which the person is party. The legitimate interests for the processing: It is in the Legitimate Interests of Forecourt Eye to process personal data provided to us by users for the purpose of assisting those users to prevent/detect/record crime and/or recover the costs associated with a failure to pay for goods or services rendered to their customers or service users.. It is necessary and reasonable to process the personal data in the ways we describe in order to achieve that legitimate purpose. This could not be reasonably and effectively achieved in a less intrusive way. We balance the rights of our service users, to achieve their legitimate purpose, with those of the data subjects whose data we process. We will not process that data in ways which they would not reasonably expect us to use it and are transparent in doing so.


Individuals entering a premise protected by Forecourt Eye can clearly view signage stating that Forecourt Eye is in operation. The signage discourages customers from drawing fuel unless they have the means to pay for it immediately and explains the Forecourt Eye terms and conditions of failing to do so. When an individual is unable to pay for their fuel but does inform the forecourt operator, the individual is requested to comply with the Forecourt Eye data capture procedure while on-site at the point of disclosure, this includes; image of the individual (subject to agreement) and the vehicle, vehicle details, the receipt and a form of Identification. Personal details are kept allowing for the unpaid fuel to be pursued. Should the outstanding amount not be paid after the given timescales, the data will be passed to a debt collection agency and ultimately to solicitors should there be a requirement for legal action. We may also upload some or all of this data to crime prevention/detection/recording/alert systems utilised for the prevention and detection of crime, and for the prevention of repeated incidents of no means of payment.
