Management of Road Usage Charge (RUC) accounts requires the collection and/or generation as well as the use and limited disclosure of certain information concerning the RUC users for the purposes of setting up accounts, monitoring usage, invoicing, collection, troubleshooting RUC user service issues, and investigating user complaints, among other purposes. Some of this information constitutes “Personally Identifiable Information” as that term is used in ORS 319.883 to 319.945 (“PII”) or “Personal Information” as that term is used in the Oregon Consumer Identity Theft Protection Act ORS 646A.602(11) (“PI”), including Social Security numbers. PII and Personal Information are both types of confidential information that are subject to additional protection under Oregon law. This Data Retention and Privacy Policy explains how OReGO Account Manager protects such information from unauthorized use or disclosure, and how and when records containing such information are destroyed.


The information we collect, and the purposes for which we use it, include the following:

  1. Road Usage Charge (RUC) user’s name, company, residential address, mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address—used for identifying and communicating with the RUC user concerning his/her account.
  2. License plate number, vehicle identification number, weight of the vehicle, odometer reading—used to identify the RUC user’s vehicle with his or her RUC account, and, verify his eligibility to the program.
  3. RUC user’s travel pattern data—used to determine the amounts chargeable to the RUC user under the RUC Program, and, when aggregated with other users’ travel pattern data, to analyze usage of the system as a whole.
  4. RUC user’s messages sent to OReGO Account Manager – used to respond to RUC user inquiries and questions.



“Personally Identifiable Information” (“PII”) is any information that identifies or describes a person. Oregon Revised Statutes Sec. 319.915 protects RUC users’ PII by limiting the ways in which it can be used and the people to whom it can be disclosed. RUC users’ PII that is used for reporting metered use or for administrative services related to the collection of the per-mile road usage charge is confidential information that is generally protected from public disclosure under the Oregon Public Records and Meetings law. Such information must be kept separate from non-exempt information and may not be disclosed except as specifically authorized by law.

PII may be disclosed to the following persons, but only to the extent necessary to their respective functions:

  1. The registered owner or lessee of the enrolled vehicle;
  2. A financial institution, for the purpose of collecting per-mile road usage charges owed;
  3. Employees of the department of transportation;
  4. A certified service provider under contract to the department of transportation;
  5. A contractor for a certified service provider, but only to the extent the contractor provides services directly related to the certified service providers agreement with the department;
  6. An entity expressly approved to receive the information by the registered owner or lessee of the subject vehicle; or
  7. A police officer pursuant to a valid court order based on probable cause and issued at the request of a federal, state or local law enforcement agency in an authorized criminal investigation involving a person to whom the requested information pertains.



“Personal Information” is defined by the Oregon Consumer Identity Theft Protection Act (Oregon Revised Statutes Sec. 646A.600 and following), as the combination of an individual’s first name or first initial with his or her last name, plus any of the data listed below, unless such data have been encrypted (without the encryption code being acquired by an intruder along with the data):

  1. Social Security number;
  2. Driver license number or state identification card number issued by the Department of Transportation;
  3. Passport number or other United States issued identification number; or
  4. Financial account number, credit or debit card number, in combination with any required security code, access code or password that would permit access to a consumer’s financial account.

We are required to report to our customers immediately if we discover or are notified that any of their Personal Information held in our computer network has been breached. Such notice may be delayed, however, if a federal, state or local law enforcement agency requests a delay because it has determined that reporting the breach immediately would impede a criminal investigation. RUC users may instruct us to “freeze” their Personal Information, that is, to refrain from providing any of their Personal Information to credit reporting agencies.


We are required under Oregon Revised Statutes Sec. 319.915 to destroy records of the location and daily metered use of a subject vehicle within thirty (30) calendar days after (1) the completion of the payment processing for the most recent reporting period for the subject vehicle, or (2) the final completion, if later, of any dispute resolution concerning the subject vehicle’s participation in the RUC Program or the RUC payment compliance with respect to the subject vehicle for any particular reporting period, unless one of the exceptions in ORS 319.915(4)(b) applies. We and/or the Department of Transportation may, however, retain such information for certain specific purposes as long as all Personally Identifiable Information is removed. The purposes for which such information may be retained are (a) traffic management and research and (b) the creation of “VIN summary reports,” that is, monthly reports that include a summary of all vehicle identification numbers of subject vehicles and associated total metered use during the month. VIN summary reports may not include location information.


To maintain the efficiency of our operating networks, it is OReGO Account Manager’s policy to purge from our computer systems any electronic records that are not required to be preserved for legal or commercial purposes. Electronic records will not be destroyed if we have reason to believe that they may be relevant to a potential dispute.
