Allego and its contracted third parties collect and use personal data from its users. This personal data is limited to the types of data that must be processed in order for you to use Allego’s services.

This section of the Privacy Notice outlines the different categories of personal data we collect and use.
When charging your vehicle
Allego must process your personal information for the purpose of carrying out our contractual obligations with your service provider. As such, by using Allego’s charging stations, your personal data will be processed. The personal data processed by Allego to carry out a charging session is your contract identification number, which is on your charge card. Your charge card is issued by your service provider. Processing your charge card is necessary for carrying out the charging session of your vehicle and the billing process of your service provider. Your charge card is stored by Allego for as long as required to carry out the contract between Allego and your service provider and as long as necessary for Allego to comply with its legal and/or fiscal obligations. We also use information of the charging sessions other than the contract ID (for instance: time, duration, location of the charging session) to further improve the quality of our charging services.
Allego and your service provider have a shared responsibility and legal obligation to process personal data in accordance with the law. As such, Allego takes measures to ensure that details with regard to your charging sessions is not, in any way whatsoever, either directly or indirectly, disclosed to third parties (other than those contracted by Allego).
