Before you use the ULEZ Checker skill
ULEZ Checker is intended to be used only for certain purposes. By submitting a request to the ULEZ Checker skill, you acknowledge that one or more of the following cases apply:
You are either the owner or registered keeper of the vehicle being checked; or
The vehicle registration number relates to a vehicle that is being, or is intended to be, marketed or offered for sale; or
You have a genuine and legitimate interest in determining whether or not the vehicle is ULEZ compliant; or
The vehicle registration number relates to a vehicle that you are involved in providing services to.
How We Collect Your Personal Information
The ULEZ Checker skill does not collect any personal information from you, except the car registration which you are checking is ULEZ compliant. Car registration plates cannot be used to identify you directly as an individual except by the UK Government’s Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency.
Our skill does not use Account Linking at the present time, although it is our intention to use this functionality in future releases and this policy covers that usage. In the case, when we do use Account Linking, your explicit consent will be sought and required. Our intention is to use any data that we collect from our skill users to:
Improve the functionality of our ULEZ Checker skill by making it more accurate. Our intention is to use the collected data together with our proprietary algorithms, AI and improved Natural Language Processing to provide enhanced and improved auto correction experience for our skill users.
In the case, where a car registration indicates that a car is not ULEZ compliant (that is the vehicle may be subject to charges when it enters an Ultra Low Emission Zone) to make suggestions on replacement vehicle makes and model(s) which would be ULEZ compliant.
