Had a letter in the post the other week saying that I needed to apply for a new swipe card for the car park entry gate which opens and closes to allow residents in and out.

I picked mine up today and how it works is explained here...

I guess they will be able to tell when and what time people come and go from the car park to make sure cars are being used regularly.

Here's a photo of the new entry system...


and a photo of the tag which will allow me in...


Apparently entry can be gained by a Smartphone app but they've not mentioned this so I don't know if it would work in this application.

Now the property owner and their sub-contracted access system provider can gather lots of nice data about you. Hope their systems are secure, you don't want outsiders to work out the best time to rob your house. No activity for 2 weeks - bet they are on holiday. Usually goes away at Christmas, goes out most Thursdays etc etc. - let's target some holiday advertising to the smartphone. I read that ofo dockless bikes (that you unlock with a code via an app) made more money selling user data than hiring out bikes. There was a divorce case in New York where the plaintiff used toll bridge records to prove frequency of infidelity (respondent popped out to pop in as it were).

If its simply an unlock system, fine. If data is being kept, ask why.

Not sure if Jersey has the same laws as mainland UK but under GDPR the system should have a 'data controller', the property owner, and should tell you what purposes the data is used for and who has access to it, how long they keep it and so on. Plus you can do a subject access request to ask them for any records they have pertaining to you. (I know its the car movement they are recording but the fob is issued to you so its personal data) and if the data is over say 6 months old ask why they haven't destroyed it.

The system could simply be installed to stop outsiders using the park house to park. Leaving no spaces for people who live there and pay.
