How we use your data

When you create a contactless and Oyster account and add your contactless or Oyster card, TfL, its subsidiaries and service providers use your personal data for:

  • Customer service and administration
  • Provision of travel related information
  • Seeing how customers use our products

If you use your contactless or Oyster card on National Rail services, you're also authorising TfL to share your personal data with relevant Train Operating Companies (TOCs).

In certain circumstances, TfL and relevant TOCs may also share your personal data with the police and other law enforcement agencies for the prevention and detection of crime.
