Processing of personal data from road accidents

Any person involved in a road traffic accident is informed that personal data concerning him or her is being processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

This processing is necessary for the performance of the general interest mission of the French Road Safety Observatory (ONISR), in that it contributes to the preparation, implementation and evaluation of road safety policy, and pursues statistical purposes relating to physical road traffic accidents.

Processing of personal data relating to traffic accident analysis reports for road safety statistics

The personal data concerned are specified in the BAAC file  and relate to the following categories: civil status, socio-professional category and postal address of the driver, traffic offences, health data, information on the driving licence and insurance of the vehicle involved as well as the factors and circumstances of the accident.

The categories of recipients of the personal data concerned are as follows, insofar as they need to know them: the organisations in charge of the ONISR information system, police forces, public agents carrying out road safety missions, technical and scientific organisations and authorised persons insofar as their mission is part of a process of improving knowledge in the field of road safety or consolidating accident statistics, as well as any person consulting OpenData, for which the personal data are reduced to the strict minimum (more information here on data available on the government OpenData website).

Due to the ONISR's general interest mission of producing statistics and analyses over long periods, the personal data concerned are kept in the ONISR database for an indefinite period.

Processing of personal data relating to road traffic accident reports for the consolidation of road safety statistics

The categories of personal data concerned are as follows: civil status, socio-professional category and postal address of the driver, registration number in the national register for the identification of natural persons, traffic offences, health data, information on driving licences and vehicles involved as well as the factors and circumstances of the accident.

The categories of recipients of the personal data concerned are public officials carrying out road safety tasks.

The personal data in this processing is kept for a maximum of 10 years from the date of its recording in the ONISR database.

 

The personal data concerned in both processing operations mentioned above originate from law enforcement information systems and are not derived from publicly available sources.

No automated decisions are taken on the basis of these processing operations.

Transfers of certain personal data are made to European institutions (CARE European road accident database) and, in an aggregated form, to international institutions specialised in the field of road safety, in accordance with European regulations and international commitments on the subject.
