Why does Claytons MOT need to collect and store personal data?
In order for us to provide you with our services we need to collect personal data to enable us to meet our contractual requirements to you and for our legitimate interests as a business. In any event, we are committed to ensuring that the information we collect and use is appropriate for this purpose, and does not constitute an invasion of your privacy.
In terms of being contacted for marketing purposes Claytons MOT would contact you for additional consent.

Will Claytons MOT share my personal data with anyone else?
We may pass your personal data on to third-party service providers contracted to Claytons MOT in the course of dealing with you. Any third parties that we may share your data with are obliged to keep your details securely, and to use them only to enable the fulfillment of our contract to you (e.g. to provide recovery services of a broken down vehicle) or for our legitimate business interests (e.g. IT Support services or Cyber Security). If we wish to pass your sensitive personal data onto a third party we will only do so once we have obtained your consent, unless we are legally required to do otherwise.

Claytons MOT will process (collect, store and use) the information you provide in a manner compatible with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We will endeavor to keep your information accurate and up to date, and not keep it for longer than is necessary. Claytons MOT is required to retain information in accordance with the law, such as information needed for income tax and audit purposes. How long certain kinds of personal data should be kept may also be governed by specific business-sector requirements and agreed practices. Personal data may be held in addition to these periods depending on individual business needs.

Under what circumstances will Claytons MOT contact me?
Our aim is not to be intrusive, and we undertake not to ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions. Moreover, the information you provide will be subject to rigorous measures and procedures to minimise the risk of unauthorised access or disclosure.
