Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) is the data controller for any personal information you provide when using the CarShareGM website or registering for the scheme. We process your personal information for the purposes of administering CarShareGM and promoting sustainable journeys in Greater Manchester.

TfGM process your personal data because it is necessary for a task carried out in the public interest by us as a public authority under s10A of the Transport Act 1968.

If you provide your consent to us when registering, we may send you promotional news and offers (including relevant newsletters) via email. You can withdraw your consent at any time by visiting the My Account page on the CarShareGM website.

Upon confirmation of registration your personal information will be shared with your workplace administrator and your first name and intended travel information will be made visible to potential travel matches (members). Once matched, contact details will be shared between travelling companions in order to make travel arrangements. Your personal information will not be shared with any other third parties, unless you opt to have your details shared with other organisations for the purpose of ‘matching’ potential car users.

Your personal information will be held for the duration of your CarShareGM membership and deleted upon closure of your account. Accounts which have remained inactive for two years will be closed automatically.

Information on exercising your rights under data protection law as well as more information about how we process your personal data can be found in our Privacy Policy on the TfGM website at
