Why do we record telephone calls?

When you speak to someone at CHP on the telephone we record the conversation. We do this for both incoming and outgoing calls. We record calls for training and monitoring purposes to help us do our job well and to provide excellent customer service. This may include: verifying information that you have given to us, reviewing calls to respond to complaints and protecting our staff from verbal abuse.

Whenever you telephone us we will tell you that we are recording the call. Call recordings are kept for 12 months and then securely destroyed. We consider that it is in our legitimate interest to do this, however you do have the right to object to us recording your calls with us. If you wish to object please tell one of our Service Centre Advisors or ask to speak to the Data Protection Officer.

Who can you contact for more advice?

We don’t want to be intrusive and don’t want to ask you irrelevant or unnecessary questions. The information you give us will be kept securely to minimise the risk of it being accessed by someone who shouldn’t have it.

We have a Data Protection Officer who makes sure that we respect your rights and follow the law. If you have any questions please contact our Data Protection Officer:
