Paid-subscription passes by the toll stations are electronically recorded for safety reasons, billing purposes, the protection of the Company’s legal interests and as proof of their making in case of doubt.
All personal data you provide by completing the Subscriber Application Form is necessary for the conclusion and execution of the contract providing the possibility of a paid-subscription-pass by the motorways managed by NEA ODOS through subscription programs. Failure to fill in or incorrectly fill in one or more of the fields of the Application Form makes it impossible to conclude a contract.

Users who register as non-subscribers are registered as ‘Registered Users’, while subscribers who register and log in are registered as ‘Identified Users’.
The Application provides the Identified Users with the possibilities of: a) access to the information of the client account, b) feedback of their transceiver, c) access to other informative functions.
The MyOdos app (playstore link) will request access to the background location, in order for the users of the application to be informed of any events related to the route, such as weather events, traffic accidents or work events on the road, for the safest use of the highway.
Third-party recipients of personal data
NEA ODOS sends personal data to third parties to whom it has assigned the processing of personal data on its behalf.

The Subscriber may exercise his/her rights to the respective Provider with whom he has entered an agreement; the latter may, if deemed necessary, forward it to the competent Toll Management Authority.
