We will use this information to provide the products or services requested, maintain guarantee and service records and, if you agree, to tell you about other products and services we think may be of interest to you.

How we will Use Your Information

If you are taking out finance with your vehicle purchase the information you provide for the finance proposal will be disclosed to lenders for the purposes of considering your credit application. Lenders may use this information to carry out searches with credit reference agencies. A record of those searches will be kept and may be used by other lenders in accessing applications from you and members of your household for credit in the future. Lenders will cross check this information with other lenders to help prevent fraud. In order to prevent and detect fraud we may at any time share information about you with other organisations and public bodies, check and/or file your details with fraud prevention agencies and databases and, if you give us false or inaccurate information and we suspect fraud, we will record this. We and other organisations may also search agencies and databases to check your identity to prevent money laundering, unless you furnish us with other satisfactory proof of identity.

Data collected about you by Glyn Hopkin Ltd or any subsidiary of Glyn Hopkin Ltd will be used to;

  • Fulfil any service or order you may request

Your personal information may be shared with other subsidiaries of Glyn Hopkin Ltd, the vehicle manufacturer and selected third parties (such as providers of automotive products and value added services such as insurance), some of these selected third parties may be based outside the EEA in countries that do not have the same standards of protection for personal information as the UK. We will, however, always use every reasonable effort to ensure sufficient protections are in place to safeguard your personal information.

We, and third parties with whom we have shared your information, may contact you with information about products and services that we, or the third parties, think may be of interest to you. We and the third parties will only contact you with such marketing if you provide your consent and select at least one preferred contact method, such as mail, telephone, SMS or email.
