Privacy policy

Your right to privacy

The Driver Handbook is committed to protecting your privacy and security. We will only use the information we collect about you with your consent to process an order and to tell you about our services. We will never wilfully disclose personal information about you to any third party other than to process your order without first receiving your permission, or unless we are under a legal obligation to do so.

Why we need to collect information from you

When you order from The Driver Handbook we need to know your name, email address, driving licence number and telephone number. This allows us to process and fulfil your order.

We may also use the information we collect about you to notify you from time to time about important new features and changes to The Driver Handbook or special offers we think you’ll find of interest. If you have asked not to be, we will not contact you to notify you of these services for any other reason, unless it is connected with your purchase.

What we do with your data

We’ll only use your information where we have your consent or where we have another lawful reason for using it. These reasons include where we:

  • need to pursue our legitimate interests
  • need to process the information to enter into or carry out an agreement we have with you

The reasons we use your information include to:

  • deliver our products and services
  • manage our relationship with you, including telling you about products and services we think may be relevant to you (unless you ask us not to)
  • understand how you use The Driver Handbook app
  • implement product and service improvement
  • protect our legal rights and comply with legal obligations

We will not sell or rent your data to third parties, including site sponsors or advertisers. We may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns and related site information to our third-party partners, but these statistics will not contain any information about you from which you could be identified.

We will not share your data with third parties for marketing purposes. We will share your data if we are required to do so by law – for example, by court order, or to prevent fraud or other crime.

Your consent

By placing an order with The Driver Handbook you consent to the collection and use of the information you provide solely for the purposes of processing and fulfilling your order.

How we protect your data and keep it secure

We are committed to doing all that we can to keep your data secure. We have set up systems and processes to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure of your data.

Your rights

You have the right to request:

  • information about how your personal data is processed
  • a copy of that personal data
  • that anything inaccurate in your personal data is corrected immediately

In summary

We’re committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect on the site only for the purposes for which you have consented. We won’t pass on your personal information to others without your permission. You can always enquire about or check the information that you have given us by contacting us.
