We collect information about you so that we can:
• identify you and manage any accounts you hold with us;
• process your order;

We may also offer enhanced services including MOT and service reminders, warranty updates and safety recalls where we believe this would be helpful or of interest.
Where your vehicle manufacturer maintains an electronic service record of your vehicle we may share details of any work with your manufacturer so that an accurate record can be kept.


We would like to send you information by post, email, telephone, text message (SMS) or automated call about our products and services, events, competitions and special offers which we feel may be of relevant interest to you.
We will ask whether you would like us and other businesses within our group to send you marketing messages when you first engage with us either in person, over the telephone or online. You have the right to withdraw or revise your marketing permissions at any time. See 'What rights do you have?’ below for further information.

Credit checking

We may do a credit check on you:
• make credit decisions about you and the people with whom you are financially associated;
• trace debtors, and
• prevent and detect fraud and money laundering.
If you provide false or inaccurate information to us and we suspect fraud, we will record this.
If you want to see your credit file, please contact the credit reference agency which we use i.e. Experian or the agency used by the relevant Finance House.
