Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has banned car rental firms operating in the emirate from retaining sensitive data belonging to its customers, under revised conditions issued by the licensing agency.
Under new stipulations outlined issuing permits for car rental business in Dubai, the RTA said companies are not allowed to retain passport or identity card details belonging to its customers.
“No private documents relating to the renter shall be retained such as the passport or identity card,” said Nasir Al-Haj, Director of Commercial Transport Activities, RTA’s Licensing Agency.
“The new conditions aim to improve the business practices of this sector, curb offences and risks, and define the roles and responsibilities of parties associated with this sector.” More info
