To correct some additional misinformation presented about the I -77 managed lanes project, the North Carolina Department of Transportation would like to clarify the following:
Section 8.7.2 of NCDOT’s contract with Cintra details Patron Confidential
Information. The language in this section is designed to protect customers’
private information and to list information that is protected by law, NOT
information that must be collected.
Any customer information will be collected, stored and kept secure by the
North Carolina Turnpike Authority (Under NCDOT), NOT Cintra.
Drivers who choose to use the managed lanes and choose to set up a NC Quick
Pass account will do so using the same application currently used by NC Quick
Pass customers. We are also providing a copy of the NC Quick Pass application
(The same application currently used by customers applying for accounts to use
the Triangle Expressway) which asks customers to provide the following
· E-mail addresses
· Telephone numbers
· Credit/ Debit card information
· License Plate numbers
· NO SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS, MEDICAL INFORMATION, BIRTH DATES OR ANY OTHER PERSONAL INFORMATION WILL BE COLLECTED BY THE NORTH CAROLINA TURNPIKE AUTHORITY, NCDOT, OR CINTRA
Again, all customer account information is protected by law, and the North
Carolina Turnpike Authority is compliant with Patron Confidential
Information Data Security Standards (credit card security) per the requirements of the Office of State Controller.
The last line of section 8.7.2 in the contract lists ALL Patron Confidential
Information that is protected by law. Again, this is NOT a list of the
information that will be collected. The only personal information that will be
collected for customers who choose to use the managed lanes are those items requested in the application.
