Security of your personal information
You need to be aware that information which you provide may be transferred to countries which may not have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the European Community. In addition, any personal information that you submit to us for publication on this website may be published on the internet and may therefore be available, via the internet, worldwide. Therefore be aware that although we endeavour to take all reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information, the internet is an inherently insecure environment.
We store all the personal information you provide on our secure (password, encrypted and firewall protected) server. All electronic transactions you make to or receive from us are always encrypted using the latest SSL technology.
We neither forward client details to any third parties for marketing purposes nor do we do mass mail outs. We may use a third party tool such as Mailchimp to highlight vehicle information to businesses/clients on an occasional basis if they have agreed to receive this.
You just need to be aware that you are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will never ask you for your password (except when you log in to the website).
You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you. Provision of such information will be subject to the supply of appropriate evidence of your identity (for this purpose, we will accept a photocopy of your passport certified by a solicitor or bank plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address).
We may withhold such personal information to the extent permitted by law.
You may instruct us not to process your personal information for marketing purposes by e-mail at any time. In practice, you will usually either expressly agree in advance to our use of your personal information for marketing purposes, or we will provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of the use of your personal information for marketing purposes.
