7. Disclosing your personal information collected through this Site or otherwise

By providing personal information to us, you acknowledge and agree that we may share your personal information with a third party where:

  • That third party is your insurance company. For example, we are likely to share your personal information with your insurance company for the purposes of resolving your claim under your insurance policy and/or to allow us to collect payment from your insurance company for the services we provided to you; we may share your information with your insurance company for the purposes of preventing fraud and/or to develop our service provision generally to your insurance company to further benefit you and other policyholders;
  • We are directly or indirectly using a third party service provider (which may, for example, include another member of the Belron® group of companies and/or service providers appointed by it) to provide services to us that involve data processing. For example, we appoint payment processing providers to assist us in our billing processes; we also use third party providers where we require assistance to recover payment of our invoices;

  • We have appointed a third party subcontractor to assist us in providing our services to you; for example, we use third parties to provide our services on the outlying islands of the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man; and, at times of peak demand we may direct your call to a third party call centre in order to assist us with booking and managing an appointment for you;
  • We are under a legal, regulatory or professional obligation to disclose your personal information, (for example, in order to fulfil our regulatory obligations to the Financial Conduct Authority or any successor to it) or in order to enforce or apply our Terms of Website Use or Terms of Business; or to protect our rights, property, or the safety of our company, its business and employees or others; and/or

  • To provide anonymous statistical information about users of the Site and related usage information to reputable third parties. Except as described above, we will not share your personal information with third parties.

8. Where we store your personal information

In order to provide our services and the Site, any personal information that we collect from you may be transferred to and stored by a third party at a destination inside or outside the European Economic Area, including in a country where the law provides less protection for personal information. If we engage a third party to process personal information on our behalf, then regardless of their location we contractually require them to apply appropriate safeguards for personal information. By continuing to use our services or the Site and by providing any personal information, you are consenting to such transfers, storing or processing of your personal information.

9. Telephone calls to and from Autoglass®

We usually record all incoming and outgoing telephone calls with our customers that are made to or from (as the case may be) our call centre, customer accounts team, customer services team and/or compliance team.

Incoming calls to our branches may be recorded in some cases. Currently, outgoing calls from our branches are not recorded.

Calls received or made by staff at any third party call centre appointed by us will also usually be recorded.

Unforeseen information system errors may prevent our ability to record calls or retrieve recordings in some instances.

Where we consider it reasonable and appropriate, we may allow a third party to listen to our recorded calls. In particular, we may make the calls we record available to a policyholder’s insurer or a governmental authority, such as the Financial Conduct Authority or the Police. Recorded calls may also be used as evidence in any dispute that arises concerning payment for the service we provide. We will always make appropriate arrangements to safeguard the personal information within any recorded call to ensure that no inappropriate use is made of that information.

10. Emails, text and other electronic messaging

We may contact you by e-mail, text or other communication methods (either physical or electronic) in connection with your booking, including sending you an appointment reminder using e-mail or text/SMS.

Unless you have asked that we should not do so, we may contact you about our services and products using e-mail, text or other forms of physical or electronic media.
