At West4Autos Ltd we take great care with personal information provided to us online, taking steps to keep it secure and ensure it is used only for legitimate purposes.

It also explains your rights as an individual over how your personal data is used. Personal data is defined as information concerning any living person that is not already in the public domain.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is legislation for a new form of data protection which replaces The Data Protection Act (DPA) and Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR).

These rights cover the safeguarding of personal data, protection against the unlawful processing of personal data and the unrestricted movement of personal data both in and out of the EU.
