We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting the personal data we hold about you. This policy explains what data we collect about you, how we collect it, the measures we take to keep your data secure and the uses we make of it. We also explain the options you have in relation to your personal data.
When you request services from us or access our websites, you consent to our collection, retention and use of your personal data in the manner described in this policy and accept the risks outlined in the Security section.
This policy covers the personal data we collect about you for our vehicle and equipment rental business. It does not address data that does not personally identify you, such as aggregated anonymous data. We are free to use non-personal data as we wish. We do not knowingly obtain personal data from individuals under age 18 years.
14. Who We Are
We are JP Just Properties international Pty Ltd Trading as GreenShareCar and its subsidiaries, an Australian company based in Melbourne, and may also operate under the GreenShareCar brand in other parts of the world, which together with our subsidiary companies, provides vehicle rental services in Australia and or worldwide. All references in this policy to "we", "us" and "our" are to us and our subsidiaries. Our businesses generally operate under a "GreenShareCar" "when you need to drive" mark, including our affiliated companies under the Roscon Group of Companies, "the affiliated companies".
We operate a large network of licensees in provision of our services worldwide and are affiliated to many other companies through ownership. As our licensees and affiliates are independent companies, they are not owned or controlled by us and are not covered by this policy, although they may have their own privacy policies to govern the personal data they collect.
These companies are owned by The Roscon Group of Companies or affiliated by agreement or other arrangement, and are covered by this policy. The expressions "we", "us" and "our" apply to them.
We have a network of independent companies licensed to operate vehicle rental businesses using the "GreenShareCar" "when you need to drive" name and business system. These companies may describe themselves as "GreenShareCar" "when you need to drive" "System Licensees" or "GreenShareCar" "when you need to drive" "Franchisees" to indicate that they are not our subsidiaries.
These companies either control us (through ownership) or are controlled by the companies that control us. They cover a range of businesses but are generally not involved in provision of our services to you.
We may change this policy from time to time. If we do so, the amended policy will take effect when we post it on our website. We will amend the "last updated" notice on the first page of this policy whenever we make a change.
If any change makes the policy less protective of your personal data, it will not apply to data we collected about you before the change was made. The only exception to this is where we have told you about the changes and given you the opportunity to tell us not to apply them to your personal data.
19. Legal Issues
We do business in many countries and aim to comply with the privacy laws applicable to the personal data we collect and use in the particular country in which we operate.

25. Our Website
We use certain technologies on our websites to collect data about your visit, as follows:
A "cookie" is a set of data sent to your computer by our web server that enables the server to recognize your computer.
Cookies help us improve the quality of your visits to our websites by making the reservation process faster and smoother. The information they provide helps us develop content and features that we think will be of interest to you.
• Track your use of our websites during a single visit, remember the data you provide and the choices you make as you progress from page to page ("session cookies"); and
• Recognize you at your next visit ("persistent cookies").
27. More about Cookies
1. If you restrict our use of session cookies you will not be able to use our websites or certain features of our e-mail messages. You should be aware that session cookies are generally deleted or made unavailable to us as soon as you close your browser.
2. If you restrict our use of persistent cookies you may still enjoy the full workings of our websites and e-mail messages but will need to re-enter some data when starting a new website session. Although persistent cookies will neither automatically be erased nor made unavailable to us upon closing your browser, they will typically "expire" after a number of years.
If you are still unsure about cookies, please note that the data that makes up one of our cookies will typically have no meaning to anyone other than us. Also, a cookie is unable to retrieve other data from your computer's hard drive or pass on computer viruses.
28. Pixel Tags
In addition, we may use "pixel tags" or similar technologies that enable us to track your actions as a user of our websites or recipient of our e-mail messages.
Pixel tags are used to collect anonymous data to help us determine popular destinations, average rental prices, quote and conversion rates, click-through and other information to improve our service. We also use them to identify which online advertisement or email has brought a customer to our website.
29. Other Company Websites
We try to ensure that the personal data we retain about you is stored securely and is as accurate, current and complete as necessary for the purposes we use it for.
We generally retain personal data about our customers for as long as we believe appropriate for the purposes for which it was collected or as otherwise required by applicable law.
Our principal databases for storing the personal data we collect are located in Melbourne - Australia, Toronto - Canada.
As you may be aware, there is no completely secure method of transmitting or storing data. Although their physical characteristics are different, postal mail, telephone calls, text messages, faxes and transmissions over the Internet all present possibilities of loss, misrouting, interception and misuse of the data that is transmitted.
We aim to maintain appropriate physical, procedural and electronic safeguards to protect your personal data, including:
1. Restricting access to personal data to our employees on a "need to know" basis;
2. Enforcing policies and procedures for our employees in their handling of personal data; and
3. Using technologies designed to safeguard data during its transmission, including SSL encryption for the data you provide on our websites.
If you have reason to believe that any account with us is no longer secure, you must immediately contact us by following the instructions at the end of this policy.
33. More about SSL Encryption
"SSL" stands for Secure Sockets Layer encryption. We use this protection for the data you submit to us on our websites. SSL encryption seeks to ensure that you are actually sending your data to GreenShareCar and that no-one else can read or tamper with it during transmission.
When you are asked to provide your personal data to us on our website, you will see that our "http" website address changes to read "https". The additional "s" denotes that the site is secure for that data transfer. You may also see a closed padlock symbol on your screen, again denoting a secure site.
34. Security of Communications
We try to strike a balance between the security of your data and your convenience. As a result, we may sometimes use a method of communication that is less secure than a less convenient alternative.
For example, we will send you e-mail or text message in unencrypted form (i.e. instantly readable) because many of our customers are unable to access encrypted (i.e. coded) e-mail. This means that our email, if misrouted or intercepted, could be read more easily than encrypted e-mail. For this reason, please do not include confidential information, such as your credit card number, in any e-mail you send to us.
You may access and review your personal data and correct factual errors as follows:
1. If you are a member of GreenShareCar, such as Gold Members, Platinum Member, Life Member or Corporate Member or similar, you may update your member profile in our website at www.greensharecar.com.au
2. If you are not a member of GreenShareCar or your interest is broader than your membership data, or you wish us to delete certain particulars of your personal data, please contact us by following the instructions at the end of this policy.
To protect your privacy and the security of your personal data, we will take steps to verify your identity before granting you access or making corrections to the data we store about you.
