2.8 Contacting dealers

To contact the dealer you may use a separate contact area on our website, which allows you to exchange electron-ic messages with the dealers or chat with them. When you contact dealers via this contact area, you may choose to exchange your name and contact information (such as e-mail addresses and telephone number). As this ex-change of information happens on our website, we will also collect this information, as well as you name, con-tact information and the messages you exchange with the dealers. However, you should note that any personal data which you provide to a dealer will be subject to that dealer’s privacy policy and we accept no responsibility for how that dealer manages your personal data.

If you are a consumer, you can contact the dealers listed on our website. If you are contacting a dealer for the first time, we will verify the information (e.g. we may check if the telephone number is complete and if you have provided a valid email address). If the information you provide is clearly not plausible or incorrect, we will either delete it immediately or attempt to correct it (e.g. by looking up a missing part of your address in a reference database of UK addresses). We will also screen your contact details against our existing customer database to ensure we do not have duplicates in the database. For duplication detection and/or address completion, we currently use the services of a company named Lolagrove.  If you have any concerns about the accuracy of an address, or if you wish to exercise your other data protection rights, please refer to section 7 below (Your rights as data subject).

Some dealers also use our service to provide you with a telephone number that you can call, connecting you to the dealer. If you call a dealer using the numbers listed on our site, we will record the call contents, the time and duration of the call, and the number you are calling from.

Why do we collect this information? We collect this information to facilitate direct communication between you (as the consumer) and the dealers listed on our website.

How do we use this information? We use this information to forward it to the dealers so they can directly respond to your enquiries.

Legal Basis: Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR (necessary for the performance of the contract for the function that enables you to contact the dealers) and Art 6(1)(f) (our legitimate interest).

2.9 Information about New Deals

We will e-mail you information on new deals, which dealers make available on our website, if you sign up and consent to receive such e-mails.

When you register to receive information about new deals, we save your name and your contact information as well as the search criteria or requirements for the deals you want to be informed about.

Why do we collect this information? We collect this information to be able to communicate with you about the dealers’ offers and promotions and to send you information when new deals are published that match your search criteria.

How do we use this information? We will use this information to contact you by email. We may also use information we collect about you when you browse the Yesauto website to display relevant advertisements to you online.

Legal Basis: Article 6(1)(a) GDPR (consent).

2.10 Promotional activities such as contests and reward programmes

We may occasionally organise contests, reward programmes or other promotional activities. To do so, we will need to use and (if necessary) collect information such as your name, e-mail address, physical mailing address, social media account information, date of birth, and details you provide as part of identity and/or address verifi-cation processes. Some promotional activities will require additional information collection in order to perform the activity. For example, if you leave feedback or reviews or upload photos or videos in order to claim a reward, we collect your submission. If you watch a video, we will record the fact that you watch the video (or a part of it). If you buy something via Yesauto, or follow an affiliate link, we record the fact that this took place, the time and date, or other relevant information (if any).

You are responsible for respecting the rights of any other individuals or organisations featuring in any materials you submit.

Why do we collect this information? Administering a promotional activity will typically involve registering your participation in that activity, checking you meet basic eligibility criteria (such as age limits, or that you are a local resident), monitoring for fraud, abuse or other non-compliance with the rules of the promotional activity, and then processing information necessary to perform the activity (for example, assessing the reviews you leave in order to claim a reward, or details of promotional materials you view). Feedback/review submissions will generally enhance and enrich products and services, or could be used as part of future marketing campaigns. In some cases, rewards will be conditional on doing several things in succession (e.g. leaving a certain number of reviews), in which case we keep a record of these actions and/or an equivalent metric (e.g. a points tally), Sub-sequently providing you with a physical reward might require us (for example) to send you something by mail.

Occasionally, promotional activities might reward sign-ups to promotional e-mails or similar marketing (in which case, see ‘Information about New Deals’ above).

How do we use this information? If we need to check your eligibility for an activity, we can do so by com-paring the information we hold or collrct against the eligibility rules for the activity. If we monitor for fraud or non-compliance with the activity’s rules, we will look for indicators of abuse such as IP addresses that do not match the user’s self-declared place of residence, or for multiple sign-ups from a given location, device or e-mail address. Tools such as ReCAPTCHA (discussed below) can also help with this. Sending you rewards will usually involve use of your electronic or physical mailing addresses. If you provide feedback, including positive testimonials, we can use these for internal development, or on our sites or apps, or in future promotional materi-als or similar.

Legal Basis: Unless otherwise stated, the legal basis will be Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR (necessary for the performance of the contract terms relevant to the promotional activity, which could be activity-specific terms and/or our gen-eral terms and conditions) and Art 6(1)(f) (our legitimate interest). If, as part of a promotional activity, you consent to unsolicited marketing by e-mail or similar, the legal basis for that will be as described above, under ‘Information about New Deals’.

Withdrawing consent

Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent. If you withdraw your con-sent to receiving information about new deals by e-mail, we will add your e-mail address to a list to ensure we do not send you further e-mails about new deals. However, your withdrawal of consent will not affect the pro-cessing of your personal data prior to the day you withdrew your consent.

3. Automated decision making

We do not carry out any automated decision making.

4. Disclosure of personal information

In addition to the specific instances mentioned above, we may share your personal information with third parties in the following circumstances:

  • if necessary, where it is necessary to investigate any unlawful or abusive use of the Yesauto Services or for law enforcement purposes, personal information will be disclosed to law enforcement authorities and, where appropriate, to injured third parties. However, this only happens if there are concrete indications of unlawful or abusive conduct. A transfer can also take place if this serves the enforcement of terms of use or other agreements. We are also required by law to provide information to certain public bodies upon request. These are law enforcement authorities, authorities that prosecute administrative offences subject to fines and the tax authorities;
  • where we rely on contractors and third-party service providers to either provide services that you or our other customers have requested, including:
    • as part of the Yesauto Services, we use Google Maps (provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). To use the functions of Google Maps, your IP address is transferred to Google. However, to give you the opportunity to decide for yourself about the processing of your data, we have implemented a “two-click-solution” meaning that you must consent to the transfer of your IP address to Google. Once you have provided your consent, Google receives a notification that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website, together with your IP address. This occurs regardless of whether you have a Google user account. However, if you are logged in to your Google account, the information will be directly associated with your Google account. If you do not want your profile to be associated with Google, you must log out before activating the Google Maps button on our site. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or the design of its website to meet your needs. Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Google, as well as setting options, can be found in the provider's privacy policy;
    • as part of the Yesauto Services, we use social plugins from Facebook (provided by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA), Twitter (provided by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA), Pinterest (provided by Pinterest Inc., 651 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA), Instagram (provided by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA) and Whatsapp (provided by WhatsApp Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA). Through this integration, you can share your experience of the Yesauto Services with third parties. By default, we embed disabled buttons that do not connect to the servers of any of the social and professional networking sites named above. Only when you activate them and agree to communicate with these networking sites, the buttons will become active and connect to the services. The purpose, scope of data collection and further processing and use of the data by the networks as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of personal data can be found in the data protection information of the respective providers; and
    • as part of the Yesauto Services, we integrate videos with YouTube (provided by Tube LLC, headquartered in 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA). We have integrated YouTube videos with a "two-click solution" meaning that data is not transmitted to YouTube until a video has started to play. If you simply use the Yesauto Services with an embedded YouTube video, no data will be disclosed to YouTube. However, if you hover your mouse over the embedded video, you will first see a message advising you that, when you click on the link, certain personal information (including your IP address) will be transmitted to YouTube. You may then decide whether you want to click on the video or not. If you are logged into YouTube, YouTube may assign this information to your personal account. You can prevent this association by logging out of your YouTube user account and other YouTube LLC and Google Inc. user accounts and deleting company cookies before using our site. Further information on data processing and data protection by YouTube (Google) can be found in the provider's privacy policy;
  • where we rely on contractors and third-party service providers to either provide services or perform functions on our behalf and provide services to us; and
  • where we need to share your information with our other group companies for internal reasons, primarily for business and operational purposes. As we continue to develop our business, the structure of our company may change by changing its legal form or by establishing, acquiring or selling subsidiaries, companies or parts of companies. In such transactions, customer information is shared as part of the business intended to be transferred. In addition, if any bankruptcy or reorganisation proceedings are brought by or against us, all personal information will be considered an asset of ours and as such it is possible it will be sold or transferred to third parties.

Whenever personal information is passed on to third parties to the extent described above, we ensure that this is done in accordance with data protection laws and that such third parties comply with similar and equally stringent undertakings of privacy and confidentiality.

5. Transfer of personal information

We may transfer your personal information outside of the UK and EEA (including to the third parties detailed above). Where we transfer your data outside of the UK and EEA, we will to the extent required by law ensure that a suitable safeguard is in place in order to protect your data. This typically means we will ensure that recipi-ents of the data are bound by additional contract terms based on approved Standard Contractual Clauses.

Please contact us if you would like a copy of the safeguards which are in place for transfers of your personal information outside of the UK and EEA.

6. Retention of personal information

Your personal information will generally be retained until it is no longer required by us in order to provide the Yesauto Services to you (for example, if you have cancelled your Yesauto account).

We will delete your personal information when all storage periods have expired.

7. Your rights as data subject

You have the right to be informed about the identity of these third-party recipients.

7.4 Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal information in certain circumstances. If you have restricted the processing of your personal information, we will still store your information, but will only process that information with your consent or in certain other limited circumstances.

If you make a request to exercise your right to restriction of processing, we are obliged to notify all third-party recipients to whom we have disclosed your personal information of such request, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

  • for compliance with a legal obligation or performance of a task carried out in the public interest; or
  • for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If you make a request to exercise your right to erasure, we are obliged to notify all third-party recipients to whom we have disclosed your personal information of such request, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

7.7 Right to data portability

You have the right to obtain and reuse your personal information for your own purposes across different services. For example, if you decide to switch to a new provider, this enables you to move, copy or transfer your information easily between our IT systems and theirs safely and securely, without affecting its usability.

Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

7.8 Right to object to processing

You have the right to object to certain types of processing of your personal information. If you send us an objection, we will no longer process your personal information, except for where:

Section B

1. Analysis and tracking technologies

We may monitor your behaviour in order to get to know how you use the Yesauto Services.

When using the website, we usually use cookies or pixel tags to monitor your behaviour.

Cookies are small text files that contain a characteristic string of characters (cookie ID) and that are stored on your device (e.g. smartphone or computer) via an Internet browser if you do not prevent this through technical settings. Cookies enable the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish your individual browser from other Internet browsers. A certain Internet browser can therefore be recognised and identified via the unique cookie ID. This makes it possible to simplify the use of our website for you, for example because you only have to enter certain data once rather than every time you visit the website. If possible, we use cookies that can be deleted when you close your browser (so-called “session cookies”). However, we may also use cookies that are stored on your computer for a longer period (so-called “persistent cookies”). In addition to the option of configuring your browser so that it does not accept cookies, you can delete cookies that have already been set at any time via your Internet browser or other programmes. Please note, however, that not using cookies may mean that not all functions of our website or services are fully usable.

Pixel tags (web beacons) are small, usually invisible graphics that are integrated into websites and other services in order to carry out statistical evaluations, usually for marketing purposes.

When using the mobile application, such services may also be used but are technically based on a programming interface. You can opt-out of interest-based ads by changing the settings on your device.

Unless otherwise state below, the legal basis for all services mentioned in Section B: Art. 6 (1)(a GDPR (consent).

2. Types of Cookies

Cookie and cookie typePurposeDuration of storage of data
Self developed cookie, auto_cookie, persistent cookieWe use a self-developed cookie which collects the following information: your location (such as postcode, city ID, IP address); the used language; the URL of the referring website (when accessing our services through a browser), MAC, device ID and WiFi-information, operating system, your User-ID as well as information on the use of the Yesauto Service.
We use this tool in order to self-analyse the users' behaviour and improve our services. We also use this cookie to remember your log-in data (user name and password.
2 years
Facebook Pixel, persistent cookieWe use the Facebook Pixel and the feature "Custom Audience" provided by Facebook Ireland Limited, Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland and operated by acebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA ("Facebook").
The Facebook Pixel is used to display interest-based advertising to our users. For this purpose, we have implemented the Facebook pixel. This pixel is used to connect to the Facebook servers when you visit our services. In doing so, information about your activities on the Internet (such as clicking behaviour), the device you use, the purchases made and how you use this page (e.g. elements clicked on), as well as your IP address, browser type/version and operating system, the pages you previously visited, the host name of the accessing device and the time of the request are transmitted to Facebook. Thedata is transmitted even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged in to Facebook. However, if you do have a Facebook account, Facebook associates this information with your Facebook account. The Facebook pixel enables us to measure, evaluate and optimize the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. We only receive anonymous reports from Facebook. For more information about Facebook's collection and use of this information and your rights and choices about protecting your privacy, please see Facebook's Privacy Notice.
We use the "Facebook pixel" with the advanced matching feature to create a "custom audience". This means that we create a target audience using the data obtained from the Facebook pixel. Facebook gathers information about your activities on the Internet (please see above). By using the advanced matching feature, the e-mail addresses, names and addresses of our users are recorded and transmitted to Facebook as a checksum (hash value). Facebook compares the hash values with the hash values of the Facebook's user data already in stock. The comparison tells Facebook which of our users is also a Facebook user. We find out whether there is a match and can target our advertising measures. These tracking procedures enable the identification of the user via numerous websites.
As a Facebook member, you can change your advertising preferences and how Facebook uses your information, within your profile. Click here to access these settings. You must be logged in to Facebook to do this.
For more information about the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your privacy settings, please refer to Facebook's privacy policy, which you can view following this link
2 years
Google Analytics, persistent cookieWe use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our services. The statistics obtained will enable us to improve our services and make them more interesting for you as a user.
Google generally collects your IP address, an approximate location, technical information (such as browser type, settings in the browser, information on the used device) and any information on how the website is used. We also use the feature “User-ID” which enables us to track users when they user our services, giving us a more detailed look on how users interact with our services. For this feature we generate a user-ID that enables the tracking of the user’s behaviour across different devices.
The information generated will usually be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Since IP anonymisation has been activated on this website, the IP address is shortened before transmission within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
We also use the cookies set via Google Analytics to create custom remarketing audiences for our products. With this function we may target users that have already visited our website and present them with relevant advertisement. We define an audience criteria (e. g. website visit) and specify which action we want to take (ads on certain products). You can find further information on this tool via this link.
Finally, we also use Google Adsense which evaluates the visitor’s behaviour in order to play out user specific advertising. Google Adsense collects identifying data of the device you are using, including the IP address, browser type, settings of your browser, date and time of the visit, users’ behaviour when visiting our website such as visited sub-pages, duration of stay and used functionalities of the website.
You can generally prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie on the website and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing a browser plug-in here.
26 months
Google reCAPTCHA, persistent cookieWe use Google NoCAPTCHA reCAPTCHA, a function that serves primarily to distinguish whether an entry is made by a natural person or whether it is abused by machine and automated processing (e.g. by so-called bots). Google NoCAPTCHA reCAPTCHA collects your IP address, browser type, browser settings, time zone, date and time of your visit, information about the installation of browser plug-ins, as well as information about whether you activate the checkbox next to the text: "I am not a robot".
