Use of personal data

The following is an overview of our purposes for using your personal data. Please remember that additional information may be provided to you in a separate notice from time to time.

All processing (i.e. use) of your personal data is justified by a “lawful basis” for processing. In the majority of cases, processing will be justified on the basis that:

  • you have consented to the processing (e.g. where you sign up to email updates);
  • the processing is necessary for us to comply with a relevant legal obligation; or
  • the processing is in our legitimate commercial interests, subject to your interests and fundamental rights (e.g. our use of analytics technologies as described below).

We use the personal data we collect to:

  • improve our website and services generally;
  • customize our website to users’ needs;
  • correspond with users to resolve their queries or complaints;
  • provide you with any services you request; and
  • send you marketing communications (i.e. our email updates), where it is lawful for us to do so.

Disclosure of personal data

RMS is part of the Cox Automotive global group of companies, and from time to time it will be necessary to pass your information between our overseas offices and our affiliated businesses. We may also appoint third party service providers (who will operate under our instructions) to assist us in providing information or services to you or to manage and improve the website, and these third parties may need access to your personal data.

In relation to both internal transfers and the use of service providers, if personal data is transferred outside the EEA we will take steps to ensure that the information receives the same level of protection as if it remained within the EEA, including by entering into data transfer agreements, using the EU Commission approved Standard Contractual Clauses, or by relying on certification schemes such as the EU – US Privacy Shield. You have a right to details of the mechanism under which your data is transferred outside of the EEA.

We may share your personal data with third parties if we, or substantially all of our or the relevant affiliated company’s assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by us about our users may be one of the transferred assets.

We will also respond to requests for information where required by to do so by law, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, request from a regulator or any other legal process served on us.
