Dear Mr M Meaney

 

Thank you for your email to the Oyster Card Helpdesk. I'm sorry for the
delay in replying to you.

 

Transport for London (TfL) only holds the last eight weeks of journey data
pertaining to individual customers’ accounts.  We only hold eight weeks of
journey data because we feel that this was sufficient for our needs and
does not infringe on customers’ rights of privacy.

 

At the end of the eight week period, the travel information recorded
against an individual Oyster card is permanently disassociated from it and
can no longer be linked to either the card or the customer concerned.

 

At no stage is customer information passed to any authorities or
corporations.

 

Please contact us if you need any further help.

 

Kind regards

 

Phil Wilkie

Oyster Customer Services

The response says:
"At no stage is customer information passed to any authorities or corporations."

That's contradicted by the following:

Does TfL receive requests from the police for disclosure of information about the use of individual Oyster cards?

Yes. All police requests for Oyster card information are co-ordinated by a specialist request handling team within TfL, which assesses the validity of each request.

Disclosing the above link and information would've been helpful.
