How we use your information
This privacy notice tells you how we, Delay Repay Sniper Limited, will collect and use your personal data for population of your DRS ‘My Account’ and for onwards transmission of the delay repay claims for compensation which you have submitted to DRS for onwards transmission to the Train Operator at fault. In order to submit claims for compensation on the Users behalf DRS has to collect the Users name and contact details, and preferred method of compensation as although DRS submits the claim to the Train Operator, all communication from the Operator and ultimate compensation goes directly to the User, DRS does not receive copies or remain involved post submission of the claim.
After a free trial, Users of DRS can subscribe to a DIY or DRS service plan. There is no minimum subscription term, Users pay monthly for the service and can unsubscribe or lapse at any point. The DRS plan automates the submission of the compensation claims from the Users perspective once the User has identified the train they wish to claim for and selected the button to submit that claim to DRS for onwards submission to the Train Operator. The DIY service is an information only service whereby it is the Users responsibility to submit their compensation claims directly with the Operator for those instances where they were delayed.
