Frequently asked questions about DiDb membership

1. What is the process of DiDb card checking?

Your DiDb card will be checked prior to loading at our client’s site. Please put your card on the card reader and type your 4-digit PIN code. By this method, you give your permission for the operator to get access to your profile – included your personal data – where your DiDb status can be checked.

2. How can my DiDb status change in the DiDb system?

The DiDb status is the most important indicator of your membership. There are 3 possible DiDb statuses in the system that can become transparent during your card checking process:

  • approved » green indicates that in the moment of the DiDb card check there hasn’t been any complaints about your performance so far. Practically it means that you successfully accomplished all the transport assignments for the users of DiDb. The loading is allowed.
  • suspended » yellow warns to the fact that an issue has been reported by one of the users and the investigation is still going on. You can get the permission to load only at client’s own liability.
  • banned » the red sign means that the driver’s DiDb card has been deleted as a consequence of one of the next reasons: proven involvement in an incident reported by a user, lost or stolen card. In this status, the driver doesn’t get any transport assignment in the DiDb system anymore.

Based on privacy stiplulations, in case of banned status, the driver’s profile can not be opened by the operator, only a system message will be generated during the card checking process (non-certified by DiDb). No any information is provided about the reasons of exclusion.

3. What are the important rules about the appropriate usage of the card?

DiDb card shall be used in a proper way, i.e. protecting it from light, heat, mechanical injury, and other external impacts. SECTRAN assumes no liability for damages resulting from improper use. Driver is obliged to report loss, theft or damage of the DiDb card within 72 hours. A fee is charged for the issue of a new card.

4. What are the important rules about my DiDb membership?

The condition of maintaining DiDb membership is to validate it every two years, which may be done at any of the registration offices. Membership validation includes data update, taking of a new photograph and submission of a new clean criminal record certificate (not older than 3 months). In case of failing to meet obligatory requirement of membership validation your status shall become invalid on the day following the deadline.

The exact deadline for membership validation can be determined out of the last 6 digits of the your DiDb card number. Those six digits define the date of entry into the system (year/month, yyyymm), and membership validation shall be implemented compared to that in every 2 years (no later than the last day of a given month). Membership validation may be implemented at the earliest on the 90th day prior to date of expiry.

Membership validation implemented within deadline is free of charge, but a fee is charged for renewal of an invalid membership. When renewing the membership, you will not receive a new card.

Based on the guidelines of “Description of Data Control in the DiDb system” guidebook, the deadline of the storage and control of the personal data is 2+2 years. This means that in case you dismiss to validate your membership, and you don’t fulfil this obligation in the next two years, your DiDb status automatically becomes passive and your data stored in the system as well as your DiDb card will be deleted.
