We may ask you to provide us the following data:


First and last name, postal address and postcode, telephone number, email address, vehicle and registration plate.


We use this data to: order parts needed for jobs, access public vehicle information for jobs such as MOT expiry dates, keep a record of past jobs on your vehicle, contact you regarding jobs, and for financial records.

3. Why do we share your Personal Data with the above?


We share your data in order to obtain car parts from suppliers to carry out jobs on your vehicle.  We may transfer personal data to a country outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) if necessary e.g. if a third party we utilise could have servers located outside of the EEA. If this is the case, we will either obtain your consent or otherwise ensure that the transfer is legal and your data is secure by following the EU’s guidelines.


4. How do we keep your personal data secure?


We keep your data secure by following internal policies of best practice and training for staff, password encryption and locked filing systems on-site.

5. Changes to our privacy policy and control


We may change this privacy policy from time to time. When we do, we will let you know by changing the date on this policy, notifying customers of only significant changes.
