The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The GDPR gives EU citizens control of their digital data by empowering you with the the right to know when personal data is being collected, what data is being collected, access to that data, and to purge it on request. Essentially, when you complete a form on a website, you become a data subject and you have rights. The GDPR is a data privacy regulation that modernises and normalises data privacy laws across Europe.
At Cars4Community, we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our visitors to our web site. In particular, we want you to know that we do not share your data with any other companies for marketing purposes. This GDPR Policy describes when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it and the new rights you now have.
Data Subject Rights

- You have the the right to be informed
- the right of access
- the right to rectification
- the right to erasure
- the right to restrict processing
- the right to data portability
- the right to object
- the right not to be subject to automated decision-making including profiling
The data we hold
As part of our newsletter subscription process for our newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer.
Access to your information
Right to Access. As a data subject you can request and obtain confirmation that data is or is not being collected on you. You can establish what data is being collected, how, where, and for what purpose. We will provide you with a report showing what data we hold in an electronic format free of charge upon request. If you would like a report, then please enter your email address here:
Right to Be Forgotten. If you would like to withdraw previous consent and have collected data purged. Then please enter your email address to identify you. We will then confirm your right to be forgotten.
Breach Notification. If a breach/unauthorised access of personal data takes place that is likely to “result in a risk for the rights and freedoms of individuals”, notification will be made within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach.
