    Are you the registered keeper of the car? If so, yes, you can ignore everything.

    If its a company car or a lease car then let us know.

    Yes you can ignore them - Several past threads about these non-ethical numpties in here if you want to look.

    Don't waste your time contacting them unless you really want to take the POPLA route as that only prolongs the attempts to scam you.

    I see these 'ethical' crooks still offer clamping on their website.

    Oh, how kind!
    'Parking tickets' issued by Private Parking Companies are not 'parking tickets' at all. They are unenforceable invoices as stated by MSE head Martin Lewis recently on TV.
    My family and friends now know what's going on in private car parks and motorway services areas.

    Spread the word!

    It's not robbery if you don't pay.

    Of course not, you aren't going to reply so they can't connect the car to an employee anyway! Stop taking the scam so seriously and just ignore the usual letters.

    And BTW, clamping is illegal, where have you been?! Their website still shows it as an option but that's complete hogwash as it's a criminal offence:

    For Gawd's sake wise up and read some other threads on the forum here:

    PCN in a private car park in England/Wales? DON'T PAY IT BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT

    USE THE 'FORUM JUMP' ON RIGHT, GO TO THE PARKING TICKETS FORUM. READ THE 'NEWBIES' THREAD.
    Do NOT read old advice to ignore, unless in Scotland/NI.

    appeal , and also appeal afterwards to POLPA.
    This will cost ETHICAL 27.00

    Not sure I would if I was an employee. We had a similar query on here last month and felt that another family member (girlfriend I think it was) should appeal (different address and surname) if anyone was going to, in order to completely remove the issue from being connected to the employee. But that was only because the OP of that thread really wanted to appeal because it was a daft fake PCN that needed to be exposed to POPLA & cancelled.

    It's just as good for this OP to ignore but if he really wants an appeal done, under these circs I wouldn't suggest he appeals in his own name.

    Hmmm - sorry for tyhe late addition.

    There is a sign as you enter the grounds that users agree to a contractual agreement that staff obey the restrictions etc put in place by the parking company.
    what are peoples thoughts on this?

    I would make a official complaint to the University that "you believe" you are getting harassed by this parking company, that you believe it could be stalking related.
    Ask them what steps they intend to take to resolve the matter.

    I still think ignoring is best, or appealing but with a different family surname and address. As I said before. Easiest for climber1 to ignore it all really.

    Means nothing. There's always a sign or six in these car parks - usually very badly worded or with tiny writing. All the PPC will do is send the usual junk mail as per the 5th from top thread 'PPC letter chains'. It's just a mail scam so see it out like we all do.

    Does it also mention that under English Contract Law the remedy for breaching a contract is actual financial losses suffered only? Which is zero in this case?

    Seeing as you have a permit , they ( or more correctly the land owner) have lost zero.

    I would like to see them try and argue this one in court ( which almost certainly won't happen).

    That said the pieces of paper might be useful at this time of year. You can stick them on windscreen at night to aid with the de-icing in the morning.
