We collect personal information from you when you provide it to us directly and through your use of the website. This information may include:
We may also receive confirmation from one of our dealers if you buy a car from them, for our accounting purposes and to manage the dealer’s account with us.
Depending on how you use our Websites, your interactions with us, and the permissions you give us, the purposes for which we use your personal information include:
Generally, we rely on your consent to process the personal information collected via our Websites, so that we can provide you with the services we offer; for example, when you browse for radio codes via our Websites, and you ask us to send you offers about particular radio codes. You can withdraw your consent at any time (see ‘Storage and Deletion’ below), but if you do so we will need to delete your account and you will no longer be able to conduct any transactions via our Websites.
We may also process your personal information where it is in our legitimate interests to do so, in order to maintain our Websites and conduct our business. For example:
We love to communicate with our users and so, depending on your marketing preferences, we may use your personal information to send you marketing via email. Some of these messages may be tailored to you, based on your previous use of our Websites.
If you no longer want to receive marketing communications from us (or would like to opt back in!), you can change your preferences at any time by contacting [email protected] or by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link in any email.
You may also see adverts for our Websites on third party websites, including on social media. These ads may be tailored to you using cookies (which track your web activity, so enable us to serve ads to users who have visited our Websites). Where you see an ad on social media, this may because we have engaged the social network to show ads to our users, or others who match the demographic profile of our users. In some cases, this may involve sharing your email address with the social network. If you no longer want to see tailored ads you can change your cookie and privacy settings on your browser and these third party websites.
We share users’ personal information with third parties in the following circumstances:
We also disclose aggregate data, which does not identify any user personally, including to third parties working in media, consumer research and the car industry (for example, as analysis of popular cars in a given year).
Our Websites is hosted by Paragon Internet Group Ltd. which has servers based around UK, and we may use other international service providers. Consequently, your personal information will be processed in countries outside of Europe, including in countries where you have fewer legal rights in respect of your data than you do under local law. Where we transfer personal information outside the European Economic Area we will, as required by applicable law, ensure that your privacy rights are adequately protected by appropriate safeguards, including by using the EU Standard Contractual Clauses and the EU-US Privacy Shield. Please contact us if you would like more information about these safeguards.
If you would like to delete your account with OnlineRadioCodes, please contact us using the details below. Please note, however, that if you delete your account we may retain some of your details (for example if you have made a complaint about our Websites), for as long as is necessary to protect us from a legal claim. If you unsubscribe from our marketing communications, we will keep a record of your email address to ensure we do not send you marketing emails in future.
You have certain rights in respect of your personal information, including the right to access, correct, and request the erasure of your personal information.
You also have the right to object to your personal information being used for certain purposes, including to send you marketing. See ‘Marketing’ above, for more details of how to opt-out of marketing.
We will comply with any requests to exercise your rights in accordance with applicable law. Please be aware, however, that there are a number of limitations to these rights, and there may be circumstances where we are not able to comply with your request. To make any requests regarding your personal information, or if you have any questions or concerns regarding your personal information, please contact us using the details below. You are also entitled to contact the UK’s supervisory authority for data protection, the Information Commissioner’s Office, or your local supervisory authority.
Hopefully that has clarified things for you and as was previously mentioned if there is something that you aren't sure whether you need or not it's usually safer to leave cookies enabled in case it does interact with one of the features you use on our site.
