For the purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the Act), we are data controller. We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This Privacy Policy should be read together with our Terms of Website Use and sets out how we will treat any personal information that you provide to us or that we collect from you.

Please read the following carefully to understand how we will treat your personal information.

By visiting www.autoglass.co.uk you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

  1. Information we may collect from you through the Site

Some sections of our Site invite you to complete online forms or otherwise provide us with your personal information to assist us in making a booking for you or to correspond with you.

  1. Internet Cookies

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site. For further information, please see our Cookie Use Policy.

  1. How we process your personal data collected otherwise than through this Site

As well as information collected from you through the Site, we may also obtain information in other ways, such as by phone, email or in paper form. We also work closely with third parties (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers, credit reference agencies) and may receive information about you from them. We may combine information received from third parties with information you give to us and information we collect about you.

  1. Our use of your personal information collected otherwise than through this Site

We may use personal information collected from you in the following ways:-

  1. Disclosing your personal information collected through this Site or otherwise

By providing personal information to us, you acknowledge and agree that we may share your personal information with a third party where:

  1. Where we store your personal information

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).  It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers.  Such staff maybe engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services.  By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.  We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping that password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

  1. Telephone calls to and from Autoglass®

Usually, we record all incoming and outgoing telephone calls with our customers that are made to or from (as the case may be) our call centre, customer accounts team, customer services team and/or compliance team.

Calls received or made by staff at any third party call centre appointed by us will also usually be recorded.

Unforeseen information system errors may prevent our ability to record calls or retrieve recordings in some instances.

Where we consider it reasonable and appropriate, we may allow a third party to listen to our recorded calls. In particular, we may make the calls we record available to a policyholder’s insurer or a governmental authority, such as the Financial Conduct Authority or the Police. Recorded calls may also be used as evidence in any dispute that arises concerning payment for the service we provide. We will always make appropriate arrangements to safeguard the personal information within any recorded call to ensure that no inappropriate use is made of that information.

  1. Emails, text and other electronic messaging

We may contact you by e-mail, text or other communication methods (either physical or electronic) in connection with your booking, including sending you an appointment reminder using e-mail or text/SMS or your attempt to contact us, whether by phone or online.

Unless you have asked that we should not do so, we may contact you about our services and products using e-mail, text or other forms of physical or electronic media.
