Welcome to Capital Car Hire GDPR Policy Page
Capital Car Hire (owned and operated by Imperial Car Rental) created this GDPR section on our Website to go over what GDPR means for you and the steps we’ve taken to ensure the protection of your personal data.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on 25 May, 2018 and places new obligations on organizations based in the EEA or which hold or process personally identifiable information (PII) about EU residents.
What is considered personal data?
According to the GDPR directive, personal data is any information related to a person such as a name, a photo, an email address, bank details, and updates on social networking Websites, location details, or a computer IP address.
What does GDPR-compliant mean?
Capital Car Hire is working with an external auditor to ensure GDPR compliance. Part of the compliance includes obtaining a signed Data Protection Agreement from every Capital Car Hire customer before May 25, 2018.
Our Commitment to Data Security
Article 32 of the GDPR requires that controllers and processors have adequate levels of security in place for ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, availability – and more, of processing and other related activities.
Specifically, Article 32 requires Capital Car Hire to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, including the following as deemed appropriate:
- The pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data.
- The ability to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services.
- The ability to restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident.
- A process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organizational measures for ensuring the security of the processing.
Capital Car Hire commitment to confidentiality, integrity, and availability – known as the CIA triad of information security, consists of the following initiatives:
- Robust set of internal controls relating to the storing, processing and/or transmission of personal data for EU data subjects.
- Comprehensive information security and operational policies, procedures, and processes relating to all core InfoSec domains,
- Access Control
- Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware
- Data and Information Classification
- Data Backup and Recovery
- Database Policy
- Firewall Policy
- Internet Usage Policy
- Remote Access Policy
- Security Management
- Software Development Life Cycle
- Web Server Security Policy
- Workstation Security
- Annual security awareness training for all employees.
- Annual risk assessment initiatives for assessing relevant risks to the organization and taking necessary action for reducing risk exposure.
- Monitoring, as necessary, of all relevant third-party providers for which Capital Car Hire has a business relationship with in terms of storing, processing, and/or transmitting personal data for EU residents.
GDPR Data Protection Scope
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was enacted by the European Union to deepen and harmonize personal data protection regulations. Now in effect as of May 25, 2018, it is a comprehensive and clear set of guidelines that acknowledges that different “flavors” of personal data require different levels of protection.
GDPR applies to all business irrespective of the region or jurisdiction, no matter where they are based, who collect and process personal data on EU residents. Non-EU companies have to appoint a GDPR representative and will be liable for all fines and sanctions.
Some of the key requirements of the GDPR are:
- Consent: Organizations must get consent in the form of? Collect personal data, with the level of consent varying according to the type of personal data being collected.
- Data minimization: Responding to years of gratuitous collection of personal data by apps, with no clear purpose in mind, the GDPR stipulates that organizations can only collect personal data that is clearly related to a well-defined business objective. If an organization gathers personal data for one purpose but then decides it wants to use it for another purposes (such as consumer profiling), that could be considered non-compliance.
- Individual rights: Another key feature of the GDPR is the very clear rights that it gives data subjects (i.e., the individuals whose personal data is being collected) to understand why their data is being collected and how it is being processed. They have the right to object, to correct—and they have the right to be erased/forgotten. They also have the right to be notified (individually) if their personal data has been breached in a way that could endanger their freedoms and rights.
We as an organization have taken a number of steps to ensure we are fully compliant with our obligations, and have clear policies and processes to respond to customer and partner questions.
Capital Car Hire has comply with applicable? legislation, regulation, statute or order which may apply from time to time relating to the collection, storage and use of Personal Information including (without limitation) the Privacy Act 1988(Cth), the Data Protection Act 1998, the European Union General Data Protection Regulation May 25, 2018 the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, the Data Protection (Processing of Sensitive Personal Data) Order 2000 and comparable laws, as the case may be in the applicable jurisdiction, or any amendments and/or re-enactments thereof.
How we are compliant with the EU GDPR regulation
This is a notice to inform you of Capital Car Hire policy about all information that we record about you. It sets out the conditions under which we may process any information that we collect from you, or that you provide to us. It covers information that could identify you (“personal information”) and information that could not. In the context of the law and this notice, “process” means collect, store, transfer, use or otherwise act on information.

The operations of Capital Car Hire are in accordance with the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), effective May 25, 2018. Capital Car Hire has made the GDPR a priority, and we are and have always been fully aligned with the regulation's intended result.
Passed in 2016, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most significant legislative change in European data protection laws since the EU Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC), introduced in 1995. The GDPR, which becomes enforceable on May 25, 2018, seeks to strengthen the security and protection of personal data in the EU and serve as a single piece of legislation for all of the EU. It will replace the EU Data Protection Directive and all the local laws relating to it.
We support the GDPR and will ensure all Capital Car Hire services comply with the GDPR provisions effective from May 25, 2018. Not only is the GDPR an important step in protecting the fundamental right of privacy for European citizens, it also raises the bar for data protection, security and compliance in the industry so therefore Capital Car Hire is committed to abide by all Data protection regulation.

Late Pick-ups / Early Drop-offs
Your rental starts and finishes according to the pick-up and drop-off dates and times detailed on your invoice.

If you do not, there is no guarantee that the car will still be available – and you will not be entitled to any refund.
We generally do not allow the One-way Rental service, however, if you confirmed your interest in advance during your booking for this service then we will charge you a one way fee, payable to the Capital Car Hires or the car hire supplier

In no event shall we provide support to anyone who is seeking our support for more than domains supported by the respective membership. This restriction is in place to deter edge cases, like a hosting provider buying a single subscription, installing the software on all of his clients' sites and then overflowing our support services with its client's requests. If such behavior is detected, we regret to inform you that we will immediately terminate the user account without a refund.
Moreover, www.crete-car-rentals.eu reserves the right to terminate any account which is suspected in being implicated in unlawful or abusive activity, including –but not limited to– unsolicited mass distribution of our for-a-fee software.
