Our websites may contain hyperlinks to websites owned and operated by third parties. These third-party websites have their own privacy policies, including cookies, and we urge you to review them. They will govern the use of personal information, which you submit or which is collected by cookies whilst visiting these websites. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of such third party websites and your use of such websites is at your own risk.
When you sign up to participate in or receive a service from Scooter Lab, such as newsletters, competitions, ordering products, readers’ offers, live chats, message boards, surveys or online registration we may ask for personal information about you. This can consist of information such as your name, e-mail address, postal address, mobile number or date of birth. Different services or webpages may ask for different personal information.
By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable Scooter Lab and its service providers to provide you with the services you select.
We may also use your IP address for some of our website services (see section 3: How will Scooter Lab use the information they collect about me? and section 12: Cookies Policy below).
Scooter Lab will use your personal information for a number of purposes including the following:
Scooter Lab will never sell on your details to any third party organization.
Generally, we will only use your information within Scooter Lab in order to provide the service/product you have requested.
We will keep your information confidential except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies) or as described in section 7: Offensive or inappropriate content on Scooter Lab websites below.
Scooter Lab will require all third party data processors to whom your information is disclosed to comply strictly with its instructions and Scooter Lab will require that they do not use your personal information for their own business purposes.
Where we share your information with third-party companies which are situated outside the EEA we will ensure they treat your information with the same protection we do.
Scooter Lab may contact you:
Scooter Lab won’t contact you for marketing purposes, or promote new services to you unless you agree to be contacted for these purposes.
If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on a Scooter Lab website, or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour, Scooter Lab may use your personal information to stop such behaviour.
Where Scooter Lab reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of the law (e.g. because content you have posted may be defamatory), Scooter Lab may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties such as your employer, school e-mail/Internet provider or law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian’s permission before you provide personal information to Scooter Lab. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant service, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with Scooter Lab or Scooter Lab corporate retention schedule. If you wish to cancel your registration with any of Scooter Lab websites, you may do so by following the “unsubscribe” instructions on the relevant website. If you change your profile to opt-out of receiving communications, your record may stay on the system so we can ensure that we do not contact you in the future.
Where you contribute to a Scooter Lab service or website, Scooter Lab will generally only keep your content for as long as is reasonably required for the purpose(s) for which it was submitted.
Under the Data Protection Act you have the right to request a copy of the personal information Scooter Lab holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We charge £10 for information requests and will require you to prove your identity with two pieces of approved photographic identification.) We will use reasonable efforts to supply, correct or delete personal information about you on our files.
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a “device”) browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device’s hard drive. Each website or third party service provider used by the website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website or third-party service provider to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites or other third-party service providers.
Cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor the websites to your interests. Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the Scooter Lab features. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
Information supplied by cookies can help us to analyse your profile when you visit and help us to provide you with a better user experience. For example: if on a previous visit to Scooter Lab.uk you searched for the latest Lambretta clutch, then the next time you visited our cookie could enable us to recognise your machine and offer you the latest six-plate clutch without you having to re-enter your details.
Scooter Lab also uses a number of independent measurement, advertising and research companies. They gather information regarding the visitors to Scooter Lab sites on our behalf using cookies, log file data and code which is embedded on our website. Scooter Lab uses this type of information to help improve the services it provides to its users. Scooter Lab strictly requires that third parties do not use any of this type of information for their own business or other purposes (see section 4: Will Scooter Lab share my personal information with anyone else? above).
