That is a small snippet of an 88 page document.

What is important is Balance Motorsport must have a valid lawful basis in order to process personal data.

Our valid lawful basis is that we are engaged in the sale of goods (and occasionally services) which require us to take customer name and address details. This is essential to facilitate a sale of goods and services. We do not sell the data to any other company, nor allow any other company to use the data. However the data is passed to third parties to enable the contract fulfillment. For example if you buy Bilstein Suspension then Thyssenkrupp GMBH will also process your data to send the order out on our behalf.

The legal basis that apply are:

 

 

(b) Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract you have with the individual, or because they have asked you to take specific steps before entering into a contract.

 


We need your name & address and phone number to ensure we can verify the payment card is legimate and to facilitate the contract of sale of goods (or services). If you do not wish for your data to be stored you may ask us to remove your data. 

Please note we never store card details or other financial information at any stage. In addition we do not ask for information that is unnecessary such as date of birth or mothers maiden name. Only a name, address and phone number is stored.
