Our Security Precautions
This website does have a security certificate which means that your information (for example, passwords or credit card numbers) is private when it is sent to this site. We currently do NOT take credit or debit card numbers through the site.
Cookies are tiny text files in your browser that can be sent from an organisations website and saved onto your computer when you visit a website for the first time. These text files typically contain two pieces of information: a unique user ID and the site name. Each time you visit a website that holds cookies, your computer checks its system to see if it has cookies from that website already saved, therefore recognising if you have visited the website before.
The viewing of the website and browsing of the website automatically requires you to accept our Cookies policy. When you enter into a transaction with the company you automatically accept the trading terms and conditions as enclosed. You have the option within your browser to disable cookies, which you can do by following the specific browser instructions.
Requesting A Copy Of Your Personal Data
You have a right to ask Ultimate Valet for a copy of all the personal data that we hold about you, even if you do not wish to change it.
You can request this information by contacting us via email or telephone, where you will be asked to fill in our Data Request Form and return it to us. You will also be asked to provide us with a copy of your preferred proof of identification (birth certificate/driving license) before we can release the sensitive information to you.
Right To Erasure
In accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulations 2018, you have the right to request that Ultimate Valet erases all personal data that we hold on you with immediate effect. In some cases, Ultimate Valet may have to retain certain vital information if we can prove that your data is needed to carry out other vital business processes, for example, filing tax returns (where we will need to retain sales invoices).
Links To Other Websites
Ultimate Valet has a duty to report any breach of personal data from our database or our Third Party databases to all relevant people and the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) if it is apparent that personal data has been stolen or misused, within 72 hours of the incident.
