We collect information about you and/or your vehicle when you engage with our website, enquire about our products or services, or with our finance partners. We only collect information which is necessary, relevant and adequate for the purpose you are providing it for.
We will give you the option to receive marketing communications from us. We will never send you unsolicited ‘junk’ email or communications, or share your data with anyone else who might.
We do not sell your information to third parties, but we do work closely with selected partners who help us to provide you with the information, products and services that you request from us. For example, manufacturers and web hosting partners who provide documentation relating your vehicle.
Sales and Hire:
When you purchase or hire a vehicle from us, we collect the personal information you give us including (but not limited to) your name, address and email address.

When you submit an enquiry via one of our contact forms (including sales & hire enquiries, finance enquiries & applications, and part exchange valuation forms), your data is transmitted to us via email. We then use the information submitted to contact you regarding your enquiry and store it within our email systems, for up to a year, before it is automatically disposed of.

Visitor contact forms and emails sent to the Firm may be checked through at least one automated spam detection service.
