The new Regulation aims to standardise data protection laws and processing across the EU, giving people greater rights to access and control their personal information. No special category data will be collected or stored, such as racial or ethnic origin, political, philosophical, or religious beliefs, trade union membership or genetic or biometric data. Health data will only be collected or stored in relation to insurance business as required.

We currently collect and process the following information: Personal identifiers, contacts and characteristics (for example, name, address and contact details), financial information, other information relevant to providing effective services to you.
3.3 Data retention We will store your personal data on record and process it in accordance with this privacy statement until you either withdraw consent, because there is no legitimate reason for Guernsey Cars to continue keeping your details on record, or local laws direct us otherwise.
