Website Analytics
Wix Analytics

- Wix collect anonymous infomation such as page views and how long any anonymous user such as yourself stays on our website. 

- This is collected automatically and stored safely by Wix on their data servers/services.

- We use this data to help us understand how our users are interacting with our website in order to improve it.

- No personal data is collected, and nothing could be linked back to you personally.

- The only possessors of that analytical data are ourselves 'Personal Car Shoppers' and Wix.

- This anonymous information will be kept until we close our account with Wix.

Google Analytics

We also use Google Analytics to learn more about our user’s activity. This does not collect specific information about you. It simply collects information such as page views, what browser you used, how long you stayed etc. None of this is tracked back to you as an individual user.

Whether information has to be provided by you, and if so why

We require you to provide your name, address, telephone number and email address to enable us to keep in contact with you. We will inform you at the point of collecting information from you, whether you are required to provide the information to us.


Cookies and other tracking technologies

One of the most common ways for websites to remember your preferences is to use cookies.

These are small pieces of data that live in your browser and mean that you don’t have to repeat yourself every time you go back to a website. For example, they help search engines to remember that you want your search results in English and help online shops to remember the items that you’ve put in your shopping cart. Advertisers can also use cookies to deliver ads that are more relevant to you.

All modern browsers have tools to help you delete or block cookies from being set. But it’s important to remember that many sites need cookies to work properly, so by deleting or blocking them, some parts of these websites might not function correctly.

The only cookies we use are the 'essential/functional' cookies that are absolutely necessary in order for our website to function correctly. We do not sell services or products directly on our website and thus do not use any cookies which commonly relate to these services. We do not collect any personal user information with these cookies and these are the minimum cookies required for you to view our website. We have not added or used any more cookies beyond the minimum necessary for our Wix created website to work. 

Please bare in mind, other third party websites you use may use cookies to track your movements to and from our website. This is entirely related to your usage and we have no control over that.

We use Wix Analytics to learn more about our user’s activity. This does not collect specific information about you. It simply collects information such as page views and how long you stayed etc. None of this is tracked back to you as an individual user. This information is used by us to see anonymous usage across our entire audience.

Keeping your personal information secure

We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.


How to complain

We hope that we can resolve any query or concern you raise about our use of your information.

The General Data Protection Regulation also gives you the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in a European Economic Area state or in the United Kingdom if you work, normally live or if any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred in the relevant state. The supervisory authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner who may be contacted at or telephone: 0303 123 1113.
