5. Collection of general data and information
The website of Select Car Leasing collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, Select Car Leasing does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, Select Car Leasing analyses anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
6. Registration on our website
The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with the indication of personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller.
By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. Insofar, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.
The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary indication of personal data, is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.
The data controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addition, the data controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. A Data Protection Officer particularly designated in this data protection declaration, as well as the entirety of the controller’s employees are available to the data subject in this respect as contact persons.
7. Submission of an enquiry form or an order form
The website of Select Car Leasing contains information that enables an enquiry on a vehicle to be submitted to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via an enquiry form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. This may include electronic mail (using the email(s) provided by the data subject), direct mail, telephone (using the relevant telephone number(s) provided), SMS/MMS or other digital messages, instant messaging or other communication methods. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject.

If you submit an enquiry or order form, all the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This may include electronic mail (using the email(s) provided by the data subject), direct mail, telephone (using the relevant telephone number(s) provided), SMS/MMS or other digital messages, instant messaging or other communication methods. Please note that as part of the process to order a vehicle we are required to request personal data for the purpose of a credit proposal.
If you do not intend to proceed with an order of a car then all personal data from the submission of an enquiry form by a data subject will be retained for a reasonable time, after which we will delete the data subject’s details. Within this timeframe we will contact the data subject for all reasons relating to the enquiry of a car, including a short survey detailing reasons for not proceeding with an order.
As we are a broker and not a lender we will ask for your express consent to submit your data to a third party being the lender. The lender being one of our partner funders (the finance company who you will enter into agreement with should you proceed with an order). Further information regarding this process and our funders can be requested directly from the Data Protection Officer. Vehicles are ordered through one of the UK Automotive dealer networks. Therefore, to progress with the order of a vehicle we must share relevant information with a dealer. Personal information shared with a dealer will include sensitive data such as your address and contact details to progress the order.
8. Subscription to our newsletters
On the website of Select Car Leasing, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.
Select Car Leasing informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The enterprise's newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter.
During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.
The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances.
There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.
If you any questions regarding opt in/out to our newsletter, please email email@example.com?subject=Subscriptiontonewsletters
9. Newsletter tracking
The newsletter of Select Car Leasing contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Select Car Leasing may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.
Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analysed by the controller to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. Select Car Leasing automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
10. Contact possibility via the website

Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.
You can find more information about cookies at http://www.allaboutcookies.org and http://www.youronlinechoices.eu. For a video about cookies visit http://www.google.com/intl/en-GB/policies/technologies/cookies/.
Cookies we use are detailed below:
a. Cookies from Google Analytics:
We use Google Analytics log cookies (such as _utma, _utmv, _utmc, _utmz, and _utmb) to identify user’s activities such as which pages are being visited and how long for. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and user’s behaviours to improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system. You can find more details about Google analytics cookies here.
Overall, cookies help provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the website visitor. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the device used by the website visitor will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the website visitor, the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the website visitor, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.
These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
b. Targeting or banner advertising cookies including remarketing with Google Double click and YouTube channel
This type of advertising is designed to provide you with a selection of products based on what you have viewed on our website and deliver adverts to you when you visit other selected websites. The adverts may highlight alternative vehicle options from other categories suitable to your browsing history.
Please be assured that the data contained in the cookie used in these adverts is completely anonymous and does not contain any of your personal details.
c. Social Media:
Select Car Leasing uses the You Tube Channel for the purposes of marketing and remarketing of the enterprise to different audience groups using video advertising. These audiences include, but are not limited to, the general population of the UK, specific targeted audiences (e.g. such as those interested in cars, luxury cars and other motor vehicles), audiences who have visited other websites, previous Select Car Leasing website visitors and also ‘Lookalike’ audiences. By using You Tube, the user is subject to the data and privacy policies of this organisation, not Select Car Leasing.
d. Google Adwords
If a website visitor reaches our website via a Google ad, a conversion cookie is filed on the device of the website visitor through Google. A conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and is not used to identify the website visitor. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to check whether certain sub-pages, e.g. the shopping cart from an online shop system, were called up on our website. Through the conversion cookie, both Google and the controller can understand whether a person who reached an AdWords ad on our website generated sales, that is, executed or cancelled a sale of goods.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used in order to determine the total number of users who have been served through AdWords ads to ascertain the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads in the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the website visitor.
e. Display Ad Cookies
The website visitor may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the website visitor deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
