Penske privacy notice for rental customers and drivers
Information we collect
When you rent or lease a vehicle from Penske, we collect, use, and share information about you in the following ways:
We collect personal information including your name, address, driver's license number, and payment information when you pick up a truck. We use this information to complete the truck rental process, perform watch list checks, provide reimbursements, process rental payments, and send rental-related communications and surveys. We share this information with service providers for these purposes.
If you request support through our 24/7 roadside assistance service, we collect your name, phone number, and device geolocation, such as the geolocation of your smartphone. We share this information with local roadside service providers only.
If you are using the Driver App, we collect personal information including your name and driver's license information from your employer to create an account in the Driver Management Portal. We also collect your driving history and geolocation when you are logged in and your status is set to "Driving". We use this information to log driver history and hours. We do not share this information with third parties. You may turn off location tracking by setting your status to "Not Driving", by logging out, or by exiting the app. Please note, if you close the Driver App or turn off location tracking, it may impact your ability to track your driving hours.
If you are involved in an incident with or while driving a Penske truck, we may collect additional personal information from you including contact, medical, financial, and insurance information if you choose to use a Penske insurance provider, or as necessary to process, settle, or litigate claims related to incidents involving Penske vehicles. We use this information for insurance processing and claim management purposes only. We share this information with our service providers and insurance partners.
Penske does not sell your personal information to third parties.
Information collected from third parties
We receive additional contact information about you from service providers, and use this information to process accidents or other traffic incidents involving Penske vehicles.
The security of customer information is very important to us, and we take a number of steps to safeguard it. We maintain physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect your personal information. We also use encryption to secure certain personal information where deemed necessary.
Furthermore, once the information has been received by us, we use security procedures and policies commensurate with industry standards to safeguard against loss, theft, unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification and/or disclosure.
Administrative, legal process, and business transfers
In addition to the sharing described above, Penske may disclose information about you if Penske believes that disclosure is necessary (a) to satisfy any law, regulation, or governmental request; (b) to respond to a subpoena; or (c) to protect the safety, rights or property of Penske or Penske rental or leasing customers.
We may also transfer your personal information in connection with any sale or transfer of our business and assets. In such event, Penske will use reasonable efforts to ensure that your personal information remains protected.
