Information New-Car-Discount may collect about Users

This policy applies to all information New-Car-Discount receives from you, for example when submitting an enquiry about our products on the website, using our live chat or using any other method of contact through the website. During the course of your use of this website, New-Car-Discount may collect two types of information:

1. Website Usage Information – This website uses Google Analytics to automatically gather certain statistical information such as the number and frequency of visitors, referring websites, and IP addresses. This information helps us to measure how individuals use the website and our services, so that we can continually improve them.

2. Personal Information – New-Car-Discount requires personal information from you, such as name, e-mail address, telephone numbers, postcode in order to submit an enquiry or use live chat . Some of this information is voluntary; the compulsory fields are identified whenever you are asked to supply information. On occasions, New-Car-Discount may also collect additional information from you on a voluntary basis. This information is collected through our enquiry forms on our product pages and also through our use of Olark (live chat and messaging) integration.

We obtain personal information and web site usage information to enable us to optimally respond to enquiries and provide our goods and services.

When New-Car-Discount collects information directly from individuals, we obtain the personal information that is needed to provide our goods or services, respond to enquiries, to provide customer service and to fulfil any legal or regulatory requirements. When we obtain information about individuals from third parties, we use reputable sources, including public repositories. New-Car-Discount employs appropriate measures to assure the quality of information which we collect.

This personal information may be used in a number of ways:

Information that Users provide by filling in forms on the Site. This includes information provided at the time of registering to use any part of the Site, subscribing to any service, posting material or requesting further services. New-Car-Discount may also ask users for information if (for example) users report a problem with the Site.

If users contact New-Car-Discount, New-Car-Discount may keep a record of that correspondence.

Details of any transactions users carry out through the Site and of the fulfilment of any orders.

Details of users' visits to the Site including, but not limited to, the referrer page, the pages of the Site accessed, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, along with the time of these events.

Recordings and location data of any phone calls users make to New-Car-Discount, for regulatory purposes, in order to monitor our quality of service, or to establish facts.

Identifying potential new customers and subscribers.

Detecting and preventing fraudulent activity.

Detecting and preventing money laundering activity.

As part of the account opening process for new customers, to verify your identity.

We may also use the information for making a credit check on you and may share it with third parties to protect ourselves against fraud. We may carry out a search with a Credit Reference Agency who will keep a record of our enquiry against your name. We may use a credit scoring or other automated decision making system when assessing your application. Details of which credit reference agency we have used are available on request. We may ask credit reference agencies to provide a credit scoring computation. Credit scoring uses a number of factors to work out risks involved in any application. A score is given to each factor and a total score obtained. Where automatic credit scoring computations are used, acceptance or rejection of your application will not depend only on the results of the credit scoring process. If your application is declined by all of our available lenders, your personal data and information may be passed to a 3rd party lender for consideration for alternative financial products. This 3rd party may carry out additional credit reference searches against you.

Providing you with the service that you have requested.

We may from time to time contact you to conduct market research for regulatory purposes, in order to monitor the quality of the products and services we provide.

We may also contact you via post, e-mail or telephone in relation to the administration of your account or to provide a service you have requested or carry out quality control research.

We may access and disclose personal information about you if you breach this privacy policy, and / or fail to comply with applicable laws, court orders and lawful government requests, to operate our systems properly or to protect ourselves and/ or our other users.

We take all reasonable precautions to ensure that outside parties or affiliated companies are aware of our privacy policy and that they will treat the personally identifiable information in a similar manner. We cannot, however, be responsible for how such outside parties or affiliated companies use your personal information.
