A note about our legal grounds for processing information about you under EU data protection laws, which is that our use of your information is based on the grounds that:
(1) The use is necessary in order to fulfill our commitments or other agreements with you or is necessary to administer your enquiry, example, in order to provide you with pricing information regarding a vehicle; or
(2) The use is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or
(3) The use is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or those of another person; or
(4) We have a legitimate interest in using your information–for example, to provide and update our Services, to improve our Services so that we can offer you an even better experience, to safeguard our Services, to communicate with you, to measure, gauge, and improve the effectiveness of our advertising, and better understand user retention and attrition, to monitor and prevent any problems with our Services, and to personalize your experience; or
(5) You have given us your consent–for example before we place certain cookies on your device and access and analyze them later on.
We generally discard information about you when we no longer need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it–which are described in the section above on 'How and Why We Use Information' and we are not legally required to continue to keep it.
For example, we keep the web server logs that record information about a visitor to one of Village Cars Essex Ltd’s websites, such as the visitor’s IP address, browser type, and operating system, for approximately 360 days. We retain the logs for this period of time in order to, among other things, analyze traffic to Village Cars Essex Ltd’s websites and investigate issues if something goes wrong on one of our websites.
