2. The information we collect about you and the way we use it
You may be asked to give us personal details when purchasing, registering or subscribing to an APCOA service or product, taking part in customer research and surveys, service or product trials, entering competitions or providing feedback on various issues relating to APCOA.
If you are giving us your personal details in the course of purchasing, registering or subscribing for a service, then we will of course use it in order to provide you with that service. We will use your information to communicate with you and to personalise our service. If you give us your personal details we will inform you of any other uses we may make of that information at the time we collect it from you and (except in respect of APCOA administering the product or service that you have purchased from us) you will be given the opportunity to refuse to let us use your information in that way.
Unless you tell us otherwise, we may contact you by post, email, or telephone (including mobile SMS) about the product or service that you have bought from APCOA.
With your agreement, we may also use your information to send you offers and news about our airport services or products or those of other carefully selected companies which we think may be of interest to you.
Your confirmation emails (which may include details of bookings, airport services, product registration or subscription made through our Websites) may also (with your permission) include marketing material which we think may be of interest to you. We do our best to tailor this information so that it will be useful to you, but if at any time you no longer wish to receive it, you can opt out by following the instructions that we will give you with each communication.
Your data may be used for the following purposes: accounting, billing and audit, credit or other payment card verification and screening, immigration and customs control, safety and security, administrative and legal purposes, statistical and marketing analysis with a view to improving our products and services, the Websites and the user experience, systems testing, maintenance and development, customer research and surveys, customer relations and to help us in future dealings with you. If we use your information for the purposes of statistical or marketing analysis, your information will be made anonymous so you cannot be personally identified from it.
We may disclose your personal information to others where we are required or permitted to do so by law, or if you send us any material that is unlawful, offensive, abusive, threatening, defamatory, obscene, discriminatory or infringes the rights of anyone else, in order to prevent you from continuing to do so.
If you are under 16 you must obtain consent from a parent or guardian before providing us with any personal information.
