Legitimate interests

The law permits us to handle your personal information where necessary in our legitimate interests provided that this isn’t outweighed by your interests. Many of the purposes we handle your personal information, described above, fall into this category as they are essential activities which enable us to run our business efficiently and effectively for example, enabling us to use third party service providers and to monitor, review and improve the services we provide to you and your experience when you visit our website.

We also rely on the legitimate interests basis for processing to contact you to remind you about important safety and quality issues relating to your vehicle including to remind you about service and MOT due dates. This is important to help ensure that you comply with legal requirements and also maintain the quality of your vehicle. If you would prefer that we didn’t remind you of these dates, you can let us know anytime by contacting our Data Protection Officer on the details below.

We also rely on this processing ground to help us ensure that we communicate with you about products and services, that you are most likely to be interested in, and in the way that you are most likely to want to communicate with us. We may, if necessary, also use your information to defend our legal rights, to obtain legal advice, to monitor our premises and to manage any complaint that you might have. We ensure that your rights and interests are protected when we do this.

Consent

We are permitted to use your personal data when you give us your consent for us to do so. We will only use your personal data to contact you for direct marketing purposes if you give us your consent to do so.

We will gather your consent by communicating the following statement to you in person or over the phone as part of our interaction with you. You will have the option to respond with a Yes or No answer to each;

Where we need personal data to perform our contract, if you do not provide it, we will not be able to provide the services to you.

Required by law

We will, if required by law, disclose your personal information for example in response to a Court Order.

These might include: -

Sending personal information only to countries that European Authorities have indicated have adequate data protection laws in place e.g. Canada or Switzerland;

Putting in place contracts with the recipient containing terms which the European Authorities have approved as providing adequate protection; organisations which are members of a scheme which has been approved by European Authorities as achieving adequate protection e.g. Privacy Shield.

HOW LONG WE WILL KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR

We may also keep it to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve complaints and to enforce our rights.As a result, the length of time that we keep your information for will vary depending on the purposes for which we have it. In any event, we will review what information we need on an ongoing basis and will only retain it for the minimum amount of time that we need it.

Your rights

You have a right to access and receive a copy of all personal information we hold about you. You can exercise this right by contacting us at dataprotection.officer@donnellygroup.co.uk.

Please be aware that these latter rights only apply in limited circumstances and therefore even if you do wish to exercise them, we may not always be required to comply.

Where processing is based on consent, you can withdraw your consent at anytime. By way of example, you have the right to request that we don't send marketing material to you. You can also correct or amend your personal information.

To do this you can contact us at our Head Office on 028 8772 2887 or by visiting the Data Preferences Centre on our website. You can also opt out of receiving marketing material at any time by ticking the unsubscribe option in any communication we send you.
