What Information Does AutoUncle Collect?

We collect information to provide better services to all our users – from buyers looking for the perfect deal to sellers looking for an effective sale. Here are three types of information we gather:

Information you give us: we receive and store information you provide in relation to AutoUncle Services. Examples of information is your email, user account, cars you are interested in, cars you own, messages to buyers and sellers that you send and so on. You can choose not to provide certain information but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our AutoUncle Services. In connection with the submission of your data it will always be stated whether the submission is voluntary or necessary for completing the desired action.

Automatic Information: we automatically receive and store certain types of information when you use AutoUncle Services, such as information about your use, including your interaction with content and services available through AutoUncle Services. Like many websites, we use cookies and other unique identifiers to deliver and improve services. We collect information such as IP-address, referrer URL of your request and unique identifiers like your browser’s User-Agent, your device’s location and crash reports.

Information that is publicly available online: we index and store relevant information that is publicly available on the Internet. Examples of information are data about cars for sale on other websites and the seller’s contact data (if available). We carefully anonymise or delete personal information of this type when the original form is no longer required.

How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Information?

We keep your personal information to enable your continued use of AutoUncle Services, for as long as it is required in order to fulfil the relevant purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

Our business changes constantly and our Privacy Policy will change also. You should check our website frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
