at impoundedcarinsurance.co.uk we pride ourselves on our commitment to preserve the privacy of our visitors. Here is how we do it.
An act called the 'Data Protection Act' was passed in 1998. This lays down the obligations of companies in the United Kingdom to protect and respect data that they hold about people. We ensure at all times that we are fully compliant with this act. A recent addition is the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 which we also comply with.
However, cookies can also be used to store personal information. In this case your express permission is required under UK and EU law.
Our website does in fact have very little information about any of our visitors. As is common in the industry we have access to log files which give us information such as the number of visitors that our site receives, the time they spend on each page, the type of devices they are using to access our webpage, Internet protocol (IP) addresses that they have been assigned by their service providers, and several other minor items of information. None of these can be used to either identify the visitor, or the specific device that this person is using.
This information is stored on our web servers, which are protected by industry standard security systems.
We do not share, sell or transfer in any way, any information that we receive about our visitors with any other business.
We will only disclose the limited information we have about our visitors to any other person if we are specifically required to do so under UK law.
We can only contact you if you first of all contact us directly, either by telephone, post, e-mail or contact form. If you do get in touch with us we will keep a record of our communication, solely for the purpose of answering your queries. If you ask us to delete your contact details we will be delighted to do so as soon as possible.
Under the Data Protection Act you have a legal entitlement to request a copy of any data that any company holds about you on a computer. If any of this data is incorrect you have a right to insist on any errors being rectified. The company which holds the data is entitled to make a reasonable charge for providing you with this information. If you wish to know what data we hold about you please get in touch by using our contacts page, and we will provide you with it as soon as we can.
If you wish us to do so, we will delete any information that we hold about you on our computer systems. We will of course ask for proof that you are the person whose data is being treated in this way.
