Last updated: 21st June 2023.
What information do we collect and process?
St Leonards Motors Ltd is operating by way of processing data for marketing purposes by consent. Once consent has been obtained, St Leonards Motors Limited will collect Personal Data and will store this information about you now and in the future for marketing purposes, market research, tracking of sales data, and in order to contact you. We will not give any personal information to any Company or third person(s), unless reasonable to do so. We may also use your information to contact you, with regards to, events, offers, surveys and reminders relating to the information obtained from yourself.
The personal data we hold may include the following:
• Your full name and contact information (address, town, postcode, email and phone number)
• Your purchase details (including time, date and cost)
• Your vehicle information (make, model, registration number)
• Your proof of identity (valid driving licence and / or passport)
• Your image on security CCTV around our site
• Your calls and correspondence with us
• Your feedback
Please note that you are under no obligation to provide us with your personal data, but not providing certain data could prevent us from assisting you.
How and when do we obtain marketing consent?
Your consent is not valid forever: it is context specific and will be kept under review. Every marketing communication with you will clearly indicate how you can withdraw your consent, making it simple for you to manage your preferences. The ‘opt out’ will be as easy to access as the ‘opt in’. Consent will be recorded separately for all channels of contact, not just email.
Fulfilment of your initial request (e.g., a test-drive request) can be actioned without obtaining marketing consent.
Lawful Basis for Processing
St Leonards Motors Limited will use one of two lawful bases to process your data.
Consent: In circumstances where you were freely given the opportunity to select specific marketing preferences, allowing us to contact you in the future.
Contract: If you have entered or are in the process of entering into a contract with the SLM Group, we may process your data to facilitate any agreements within the contract.
Why do we need your personal data?
We process personal data about you for a number of purposes, including:
• To process, arrange and provide you with the services we offer as a company,
• To follow up with you shortly after an interaction with you at our dealerships/Bodyshops,
• For internal record keeping (to be able to respond to customer enquiry and invoicing),
• To make an appointment with you,
• To update or remind you of progress or completion date,
• To provide our services to you as requested or agreed,
• To help us improve the services we offer.
This list in not exhaustive and may be updated from time to time. We do not ‘trade’ in your personal data and will not sell or rent your details.
Who will your personal data be shared with?
We may share your basic personal data, such as name and vehicle details with the relevant companies we use, to provide you with the services we can offer. All of these companies are in agreement with us and uphold the same regulations and standards.
Your personal information may also be made available with third parties providing relevant services under contract to us. These companies may use information about you to perform their functions on our behalf in accordance with the services we have requested and contract terms imposed.
We may also disclose specific information upon lawful request by government authorities, law enforcement and regulatory authorities where required or permitted by law.
In the event that we sell our business, we may share your details with the buyer to enable them to fulfil the service we have agreed with you.
Your personal information will not be transferred to, stored or otherwise processed outside the UK.
What rights do you have to amend personal data?

• The right to be informed,
• The right of access,

If you are unsatisfied with the result of any issues raised, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) at https://ico.org.uk/
