Privacy and myki
myki smart cards will be used for travel on metropolitan trains, trams and buses as well as on selected regional trains and buses. Most myki cardholders will have the choice of purchasing and using an unregistered myki.
Personal information will be collected if you choose to do any of the following things:
Registering a myki
Registration will require at least minimum contact details, for some concession cardholders it is mandatory to register and personalise their card (with name, or name and photo), dependent on the category of concession entitlement. Registered cardholders can choose to personalise their myki with their name if this is requested at the time of purchase.
Personal information provided by or about the account holder or cardholder or generated by using the Card is collected by PTV to issue and administer the Card and relevant entitlements. The account holder or cardholder will generally be able to access his/her personal information. PTV requires personal information to provide the Card and related services, such as registration.
Setting auto top up
If you choose to register for auto top up (a direct debit facility from your credit card or bank account). The TTA will need to hold relevant details required for payment processing.
Topping up by credit or debit card
If you choose to add value to your unregistered myki by using a credit or debit card, your credit card details are provided to PTV's bank and not retained by PTV.
Ordering an unregistered myki via the myki website or myki call centre
If you order an unregistered myki via the website or call centre, your contact details will be required temporarily to issue the myki. These details will be deleted about 30 days after the myki is mailed to you.
Making a query or complaint
PTV may require personal information (contact details) in order to respond to queries or complaints.
Use and disclosure
Use of the myki will generate a record, which will include the location, time and date of the transaction. If a cardholder has provided personal details, PTV will have the ability to link these with cardholder's transactions. However, PTV or its agents will not normally need to do so in connection with the operation of the payment system.
PTV and its agents will take all reasonable measures to secure personal information.
