INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT FROM YOU
We may collect and process the following data about you:
– Information that you provide by filling in forms on our website www.autodata-group.com (“our site”). This includes information provided at the time of registering to use our site, purchasing products, subscribing to any services, or requesting further services. We may also ask you for information when you report a problem with our site. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
– Details of transactions you carry out through our site and of the fulfilment of your orders.
– Details of your visits to our site including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, whether this is required for our own billing purposes or otherwise and the resources that you access.
Traffic data is anonymised and cannot be connected with other personalised information you may have provided.
We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for internal purposes (including but not limited to) system administration. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
For the same reason, we may obtain information about your general internet usage by using a cookie file which is stored on your browser or the hard drive of your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. They help us to improve our site and to deliver a better and more personalised service. Some of the cookies we use are essential for the site to operate.
WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk.
USES MADE OF THE INFORMATION
Personal data collected by us may be used by us for editorial and feedback purposes, for marketing and promotional purposes, for statistical analysis of users’ behaviour, for product development, for content improvement or to customise the content and layout of the site.
We believe our use of customer information satisfies the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) and other pertinent data protection regulation, as a company with a legitimate interest in direct marketing. You have the right to withdraw consent to data processing at any time and can do so by notifying us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aggregate data on home server domain names, operating system, and type of Web browser may be used for internal purposes.
Individually identifying information, such as names, postal and e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and other personal information which visitors voluntarily provide to us may be added to our databases and used for future calls and mailings regarding site updates, new products and services, upcoming events, and status of orders placed online.
We also use information held about you to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us; to allow you to participate in interactive features of our services, when you choose to do so; and to notify you about changes to our service.
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
We do not sell, rent, share or intentionally make publicly available any individually identifying or aggregate information. The only exception to this is where you are requesting information about Autodata products for purchase or support. In some circumstances, these requests may be passed to a relevant Official Distributor of Autodata so they can respond to your enquiry.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We endeavour to inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can also exercise your right to prevent such processing at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.
You can let us know which email communications you would like to receive from us at any time. This does not affect essential product communications such as payment notifications and login emails.
Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
