A service provider might offer a service helping individuals apply for local authority car parking permits. It would help the individual:
- populate all the relevant fields in his or her Personal Data Store, including certificates from the relevant authorities verifying that this information is correct
- share this information with the local authority, without the individual having to travel to local authority offices, log in to the local authority web site, or fill in lots of complicated forms
- to complete the transaction more efficiently and safely for both sides.
