As the ACL is supposed to change services and as this version was translated into english, the only reliable version is the original one in french language. This section of Automobile Club Luxembourg’s (ACL) general terms and conditions aims to inform you of the rights and freedoms that you can exercise with respect to our use of your personal data and describes the measures that we have adopted to protect your data. The ACL is responsible for the processing of personal data in connection with the management of its customers and members. This processing is carried out in accordance with current regulations. 1. PURPOSES OF THE PROCESSING AND TYPES OF DATA COLLECTED When you request a service or complete your member application, you will need to provide us with a certain amount of personal data such as your surname, first name, address, contact details and vehicle details.

Your data may be transmitted to third companies which will carry out the services that you have previously requested. If a refound is made by the ACL, certain documents (proof of expenses, medical certificates, accommodation costs, travel costs, etc.) may also be requested and transmitted to our insurance companies so that the ACL can in turn be reimbursed. The ACL may, in particular, collect some of your personal data for external communication purposes in order to fulfil your information requests and to learn how to better understand your expectations. Your personal data will be not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with the purposes described above or on the collection forms.

These statistics are based on all of the services that the ACL may have supplied to you. However, your personal data are anonymised in these statistics in order to guarantee your anonymity. 2. DATA RECIPIENTS Your personal data may be communicated exclusively to certain departments of the controller or of its processors. As the controller, the ACL has taken the necessary measures to guarantee the conformity of personal data processing by these third companies. 3.

GENERAL TERMS & CONDITIONS AND SERVICE OVERVIEW: PAGE 3

PREFACE

Dear Member,

Welcome to the Automobile Club.

This brochure will explain in detail all of the services to which you are entitled as an ACL member. These services cover incidents that occur after you become a member. Please note that you will become a member as soon as the ACL receives your membership fees. We remind you that the ACL issues two different membership cards, namely “Luxembourg”, and “Europe”, each with specific services. For each card, there is also a “YoungACL” option for young people from 16 to 25 years which offers specific services in addition to the standard package (see p. 9 - 10).

Your membership is strictly individual and personal and may therefore not be transferred to close friends or relatives. To avoid any misunderstandings, please note that the ACL cannot refund costs under other conditions than those described in this brochure. Furthermore, the services described in this brochure do not apply to vehicles for which the cause of breakdown is a clear lack of maintenance. Repeated interventions for identical reasons shall therefore not be covered by the free service. Please note that a complaint concerning one of our services must be introduced at the latest a month after the supply of the service.

The ACL must be notified of any request for assistance prior to execution, except in the event of major accidents or incidents on the motorway.
 

Validity of the membership card and waiting period / qualifying period

Your membership card is valid from January 1st to December 31st of the year for which the membership fee was paid.

The described services can only be guaranteed for events that occur after expiry of the waiting period. The duration of the waiting period begins with the receipt of the members contribution payment. For a first membership or renewed membership after a break, the duration of the waiting period is 2 weeks for breakdowns in Luxembourg. For all breakdowns occurring outside of Luxembourg, the duration of the waiting period is 24 hours. In the event of an accident in Luxembourg or in Europe, the waiting period will expire.

“LUXEMBOURG” MEMBERSHIP CARD

 

Tourist services

Itineraries, route maps, hotel and campsite guides, trips and short stays organised by the ACL, motorway passes, excise stamps, safety accessories, tourist information, road conditions etc.
 

“Show your Card !” and “ACL Advantages”

These programes give ACL members price reductions and other holiday benefits with a whole range of offers such as accommodation, restaurants, theme parks, museums etc. There are also club discounts in the ACL shop on road maps, tourist guides and many accessories.
 

Breakdown assistance / towing service - Recovery service

The ACL road service is available every day, 24 hours a day. In the event of a breakdown in Luxembourg, the ACL sends out a breakdown service to repair the vehicle. If a repair is not possible, the ACL will organise a tow of the vehicle from the scene of the breakdown to the member’s home or to a garage chosen by the member, either in Luxembourg or a neighbouring region.

Two call-outs a year are free of charge. The third will be invoiced at 50 % of the tariff in force.

By breakdown shall be meant any incident causing vehicles to remain immobile due to mechanical or electrical faults (car, motorcycle, camper, caravan, trailer, bicycle) that does not exceed the maximum authorised mass of 3.5 t a length of 6 m or a height of 3 m.

A transport of an unregistered and / or uninsured vehicle carried out by the ACL is chargeable and is at the expense of the member.

GENERAL TERMS & CONDITIONS AND SERVICE OVERVIEW: PAGE 4

The following are not included in free services: the supply of materials or spare parts and work carried out in a repairs workshop. The ACL reserves the right to refuse services to persons that have misused them.

Cars to be towed must be located in a place with road access. For recovery operations (for example in a ravine or field) the ACL will appoint a specialised firm, and the member will pay the firm for the service. Upon receipt of the paid invoice, the ACL will reimburse these costs, up to €150 per year.

ACL Bike Assistance

The holder of a membership card valid for Luxemburg can also benefit of all services of the ACL Bike Assistance. Only exception is the legal protection which is limited at €250 for a consultation with experts or/and lawyer costs after an accident when riding with a bike in Luxemburg an within a radius of 50 km from Luxemburg.
 

Diagnostic Center

This technical centre aims to reduce car maintenance costs. It also assists in resolving disputes with garages. In return for a small contribution to the cost, it carries out a technical control and so provides members with an objective report on the condition of their car or the car they are planning to buy.
 

Replacement vehicle

If after an ACL-organized towing in Luxembourg the member’s vehicle is immobilized due to a repair, the ACL will provide the member with a replacement vehicle free of charge. The free deployment time is a maximum of 5 working days (working day = every weekday from Monday to Saturday). Deployment starts not later than 24 hours after assistance. If an incident occurs on Sunday or a public holiday, the free deployment time will be extended by the number of days. This service can be taken twice a year. A deployment of replacement car needs a caution to be reserved. An eventual excess of free deployment for the replacement car is at the expense of the member.
 

Repatriation

Following an accident or serious breakdown in Luxembourg, the ACL will organise transport to bring the member and other occupants of the vehicle home and will pay the costs of such transport, e.g. in a taxi.
 

Technical and legal advice

Once a year, the ACL will pay, at a rate of €250 per consultation, for advice from an automobile expert and / or lawyer (as the member chooses) in the event of a dispute relating to a traffic accident (except for accidents occurring on the way to work), or to the purchase, sale or repair of a car.
 

Damage caused by game animals

If the car driven by the member is damaged in a collision with a game animals on the public highway in Luxembourg, the ACL will reimburse, once a year, up to €500, any costs of repair that are not covered by an insurance policy. The damage must be declared by sending a police statement to the ACL attesting to the place, day and time of the collision, together with a detailed paid invoice from the garage that carried out the repair.
 

AutoTouring

All members shall receive free of charge the club magazine published by the ACL − AutoTouring − which contains regular bulletins on items of current interest such as road building, road safety, the Highway Code, tyre tests, tourism, club activities etc.
 

Car and accessory tests

The ACL gives its members access to a large collection of tests concerning cars, child seats, summer and winter tyres, GPS systems, luggage holders, helmets etc. This documentation can be supplied to members, usually in the form of free photocopies. It allows members to make better choices and thus to save money.

Repatriation of vehicles covers vehicles that have broken down or been damaged abroad and for it’s repairs on location would require a wait of more than 4 days. In busy periods, vehicles may not be repatriated immediately. In that case, the ACL will make available a replacement car to the cardholder until the vehicle is repatriated, in accordance with the conditions of the ‘Replacement car in
Luxembourg’ service described on page 8.

The holder of a membership valid for Europe can also benefit of all services of the ACL Bike Assistance.

Repatriation of cars, motorcycles, campers, caravans and trailers

Repatriation is offered to “Europe” cardholders in case their vehicle (car, motorcycle) has, following an accident or serious breakdown abroad, suffered damage of such a serious nature that repairs at the location of the incident would require at least 4 working days. The same service applies to vehicles that are stolen and subsequently recovered abroad.

Once a year, the ACL covers the costs up to a maximum of €2500 for the repatriation of the vehicle, if such costs are not covered by an insurance policy. Repatriation is organised by the ACL and carried out as soon as possible. In the meantime, the car is to be stored in a garage.

However, the service is offered to camper vans with a maximum authorised mass, length and height not exceeding 5 t, 10 m and 3 m respectively.

The ACL will organise repatriation and refund the cardholder, once a year, for travel costs by ambulance or commercial airline from the place of hospitalisation to Luxembourg. The ACL will extend this service to the occupants of the car or motorcycle that can prove that they are members of the cardholder’s household.

In order to be reimbursed, the original paid invoice for the transport costs or the plane ticket must be sent to the ACL, together with the certificate from the foreign medical authority that ordered the repatriation and, where applicable, a certificate attesting to those living in the household established by the local authority.
 

Repatriation by a replacement driver

“Repatriation with a replacement driver” is offered to holders of the “Europe” card if, following an illness or accident, they are no longer able to bring their car back from a foreign country. In this situation, and if there is no other driver among the passengers, the ACL may be asked to provide a replacement driver.

The ACL will send a replacement driver as quickly as possible to bring the car, its occupants and luggage back to Luxembourg.

The ACL will pay travel costs for a replacement driver once a year. Costs relating to use of the car (e.g. fuel, motorway tolls) and those concerning passengers are to be paid by the cardholder.

A medical certificate must be sent to the ACL attesting to the cardholder’s incapacity to drive and, if applicable, authorising the cardholder to return home with the replacement driver.
 

Repatriation by air ambulance

“Repatriation by air ambulance” is offered to “Europe” cardholders if, following an accident or serious illness that has occurred while travelling abroad in a car, motorcycle, camper or other means of transport, the foreign medical authority considers it necessary (*) to transport the cardholder by air ambulance to Luxembourg or to a hospital in a neighbouring country.

The cardholder shall then request that the ACL repatriate them, and the ACL will guarantee and make payment of all costs, once a year, up to €12,500 per intervention.

The ACL will extend this service to those who travelled together with the cardholder and who can prove that they are members of the cardholder’s household. The ACL reserves the right to have the urgent nature of the transport verified by a doctor of its own choice (*).

(*) Generally the injured or sick person is brought home by ambulance or airliner (see page 7).
 

Repatriation of mortal remains

This repatriation concerns holders of the “Europe” card that pass away in a foreign country when travelling in a car, motorcycle, camper or other means of transport and whose mortal remains are to be returned to Luxembourg for burial.

Upon receiving supporting documents, the ACL will extend this service to passengers of the car, motorcycle, camper or other means of transport that die in the circumstances described in the first paragraph, and who were members of the cardholder’s household.

The ACL will pay up to €2,500, once a year, for each body repatriated, the costs of that repatriation as well as certain incidental costs relating thereto, such as the services of an undertaker.

The request to benefit from this service must be declared to the ACL by sending originals of the bills in question, a certificate indicating the cause of death and, if applicable, a certificate attesting to those living in the household issued by the local authority.
 

Visiting a person in hospital

This service is offered if, following an accident or illness that has occurred while travelling abroad in a car, motorcycle, camper or other means of transport, the “Europe” cardholder is admitted to hospital there.

If the cardholder (see p. 7) cannot be repatriated immediately, the ACL will pay, once a year, an overall amount of up to €375 for travel costs (return trip), travel in the country and hotel costs (accommodation + breakfast) for one person who visits the cardholder in hospital to comfort them there.

GENERAL TERMS & CONDITIONS AND SERVICE OVERVIEW: PAGE 8

This service is offered under the same conditions if a member of the cardholder’s household is admitted to hospital abroad. It is also offered under the same conditions if formalities are to be completed abroad following the death of the cardholder or a member of the cardholder’s household.

In order to be reimbursed, the ACL must receive originals of supporting documents and a certificate indicating the reasons why a request to benefit from this service has been submitted and, if applicable, a certificate attesting to those living in the household issued by the local authority.

Early return in an emergency

“Early return in an emergency” is offered to holders of the “Europe” card when a serious event (illness, accident or death of a spouse, member of the cardholder’s household or a first-degree relative of the cardholder, their spouse or member of the cardholder’s household, serious damage to the home, burglary) has occurred in Luxembourg, making the cardholder’s presence there necessary while he / she is travelling abroad in a car, motorcycle or other means of transport.

The ACL will reimburse, once a year, travel costs of up to €250 for this unscheduled and temporary return to Luxembourg. When they later return to the place where they are staying abroad, the person will also be reimbursed for that trip, up to an amount of €250.

The service will not be granted if the cardholder returns early and definitively to Luxembourg with their own car or motorcycle. If, however, the trip abroad took place by other means of transport such as train, plane or coach, the ACL will reimburse the cost of the early and definitive return up to an amount of €250.

The ACL offers this service to other members of the cardholder’s household. In order to be reimbursed, the ACL must receive either originals of travel tickets, or other proof of travel costs and a certificate indicating the reasons why a request to benefit from this service has been submitted and, if applicable, a certificate attesting to those living in the household issued by the local authority.
 

Breakdown recovery / towing of cars, motorcycles, campers, caravans and trailers

This service is offered to holders of the “Europe” card if their vehicle (car, motorcycle, camper, caravan or trailer) is immobilised following a breakdown or accident that has occurred abroad.

The ACL will reimburse the cardholder, once a year, for recovery costs of up to €250 whether on-site or costs of towing from the place of immobilisation to the nearest garage.

The callout should be declared by sending the ACL the original of the detailed paid invoice issued by the garage.
 

Replacement car in Luxembourg

A replacement car is offered, once a year, to holders of the “Europe” card if, following an accident or serious breakdown, their vehicle (car, motorcycle) needs to be repatriated in order to be repaired. Whilst waiting for the car to be repatriated, the cardholder may be given a replacement car with unlimited mileage to be used in Luxembourg. Repatriation should be requested as soon as the cardholder returns to Luxembourg.

For the first 10 days between the cardholder’s return to Luxembourg and the repatriation of their vehicle, the ACL will make a replacement car available to the cardholder free of charge. If the cardholder prefers another car, the ACL will reimburse a maximum of €30 per day.

For the 5 subsequent days the cardholder will make a contribution of 50 % of the rental charges. If the cardholder rents a car of their choice, the ACL will reimburse a maximum of €15 per day.

This service is offered under the same conditions if the cardholder is deprived of their vehicle because it has been stolen abroad.

The car is covered by the following insurance policies: “civil liability”, “new driver” and “casco”. The latter includes an excess of €650. If they wish so, cardholders may remove this excess for a fixed charge of €14.50 per day of rental.
 

Vehicles to be scrapped

The scrapping service is offered to holders of the “Europe” card if their vehicle (car, motorcycle, camper, caravan or trailer) is completely written off in a traffic accident or fire when travelling abroad and has to be scrapped there.

The ACL will pay, once a year, up to €750 for the various costs arising from the scrapping of the vehicle.

The ACL will proceed in the same way if the vehicle has suffered a breakdown that is so serious that repatriation would not be justified by the residual value of the vehicle.

GENERAL TERMS & CONDITIONS AND SERVICE OVERVIEW: PAGE 9
 

Dispatch of spare parts

Dispatch of spare parts is a service offered to holders of the “Europe” card if, following an accident or breakdown abroad, it is not possible to obtain the spare parts which are required in order to repair their vehicle (car, motorcycle, camper, caravan, trailer, bicycle) there.

If such spare parts are available in Luxembourg, the ACL will purchase them there and dispatch them at its own cost to the cardholder by the most appropriate method.

In order to avoid errors, it is preferable that the dispatch of parts be requested by fax (+352 450 493). In an emergency, telephone the ACL (+352 26 000). The ACL will inform the cardholder of the package number and estimated date and time of arrival of the parts. Customs duty and costs arising thereof are to be paid by the cardholder. The purchase price of the parts is to be paid back to the ACL by the cardholder.

The ACL application allows members to contact our support centre quickly and considerably shortens the support process. If a problem arises, just click once to contact the support centre. The application automatically transmits the location data. These data are extremely important, as they make it easier for the emergency services to locate the bike. This allows for fast, targeted assistance.

Legal protection

„ ACL Bike Assistance “ cardholders are entitled to legal protection in Luxembourg and the Greater Region following a road accident with a bike. Legal protection includes defending the holder in a civil or criminal court. ACL covers the lawyer’s and / or expert’s fees as well as general legal costs up to €2,000. With the exception of holders of the only Luxembourg membership card for whom the conditions for legal protection linked to a cycle accident are different (see ACL general conditions, page 4)

However, legal protection is not offered if the defendant is charged with alcohol abuse.

This covers accidents occurring after the date of issue of the membership card. In the event of legal action, the damage suffered must have a value exceeding €200.
