Privacy Policy

RacingXS - Privacy Notice

This notice describes our privacy policy. RacingXS knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate you putting your trust in us to do so carefully and sensibly. By visiting the RacingXS website, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

What personal information about customers does RacingXS gather?

The information we learn from customers helps us personalise and continually improve your shopping experience at RacingXS. Here are the types of information we gather.

Information you give us

We receive and store any information you enter on our Website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customising future shopping for you, improving our store, and communicating with you.

Automatic information

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Websites, we may use "cookies", and we obtain certain types of information when your browser accesses RacingXS. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see examples of the information we receive. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalised experience at RacingXS if we cannot recognise you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.

E-mail communications

To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from RacingXS, if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust the settings in your account details.

Information from other sources

We aim to continually improve our service (for example, providing better product recommendations or special offers that we think will interest you), so we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. We also sometimes receive updated delivery and address information from other sources so that we can correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily.

What about cookies?

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognise your browser and to provide features such as automatic login and permanent shopping carts for storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits. The "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of RacingXS's coolest features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Does RacingXS share the information it receives?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to other Companies. We do have a number of partnerships with other motorsport companies and sell product lines jointly with these businesses. You can tell when another business is involved in your transactions, and we share customer information related to those transactions with that business.

What is Social Bookmarking?

We all have favourite websites that we bookmark specifically as favourites to visit time and time again, but these are stored on a specific PC or laptop meaning that when we use another machine, perhaps at work or at a friend's house, we can't access them. Social Networking sites like Facebook and Digg (sometimes called bookmarking or sharing websites) let you "tag" favourite websites or pages within websites so you can access them from any computer you are using. You can also share them with friends and other people with similar interests, thus spreading the word about a great site or product you have found! Social Networking sites are all free to use, so it's just up to you to decide which site suits you best and then register with them. So, if you find something that you like on RacingXS and want to come back to it at a later date, or share it with someone, then simply click the tag and add it to your list!

Agents

We occasionally use other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analysing data and marketing information, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Promotional offers

Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of RacingXS customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address. If you do not want to receive such offers, please adjust your account newsletter preference as that is how we will send out our promotions.

Business transfers

As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. In the event that RacingXS, or substantially all its assets, are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

Protection of RacingXS and others

We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our Terms & Conditions and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of RacingXS, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

With your consent

Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

How secure is your information?

RacingXS protects your privacy and information by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. Credit Card Numbers are removed from our server immediately after the transaction has been made. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

What information can I access?

RacingXS gives you access to the following information about you for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. This list may change as our website evolves.

What choices do I have?

As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of such RacingXS features as automatic login, and permanent shopping carts. You can add or update certain information once logged-in. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your account to reflect this in the newsletter menu.

Children

RacingXS does not sell products for purchase by children. If you are under 18, you may use RacingXS only with involvement of a parent or guardian.

Conditions of use, notices, and revisions

If you choose to visit RacingXS, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Conditions of Use, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the United Kingdom. If you have any concern about privacy at RacingXS, please send us a thorough description to cs@racingxs.co.uk, and we will try to resolve it. Our business changes constantly, so this Notice and our Terms & Conditions will change also, and use of information that we gather now is subject to the Privacy Notice in effect at the time of use. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our Website frequently to see recent changes.

Information you give us

You provide information when you search, buy, post, participate in a contest or questionnaire, or communicate with customer service. For example, you provide information when you search for a product; make an order, provide information, communicate with us by e-mail or otherwise; complete a questionnaire or a contest entry form, provide and rate reviews. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name, address, and phone number; people to whom purchases have been shipped, including address and phone number; other people; content of reviews and e-mails to us; and financial information.

Examples of the information we collect and analyze include the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; purchase history; the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through, and from our Website, including date and time; cookie number; and products you viewed or searched for.
