We only collect information we need and have strict controls to keep it safe. We collect personal information to provide our website, apps, products and services to you.

We collect personal information such as name, address, email address, telephone number, IP address. Information will be held in digital and / or paper files.

We collect the personal information you give us when you use our websites and apps, or when you get in touch by phone or email.

The personal information we collect will be used by us and third parties who process information on our behalf.

By law, we must have a legal justification to process your personal information for the purposes described in this privacy notice. 

We’ll process personal information for our legitimate interests, when we have a business reason to do so. This includes but is not limited to:

  • if we provide a service to you and need to fulfil a contract agreement e.g. a car lease;
  • developing, improving, and personalising our products and services;
  • enhancing our service and relationship (e.g. market research, business analysis, providing relevant service information);
  • developing and improving our administration, security systems and applications;
  • sharing it with third parties in the event of organisational change (e.g. if we bought or merged with another organisation);
  • sharing personal information with other LV= companies and the Allianz Group.

If we need consent to process your personal information, we’ll ask you first. You can withdraw this consent any time.

In the event that we process personal information outside the UK, the processing in those locations is protected by UK and European data standards.

If the information you provide to us is transferred to countries outside the UK and the European Economic Area (EEA) by us or our suppliers, steps will be taken to make sure appropriate security measures are in place with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected.

We work with selected partners to show you relevant online adverts on third-party websites and social media platforms. We also use personal information to identify the right audiences for our advertisements. The partners we work with don’t use your information for their own reasons, and we make sure they delete it once we’ve identified audiences.

We’ll send you marketing information by email, post, phone and/or SMS about information, products, services and discounts related to electric vehicles if you’ve given us permission. The marketing information we send includes information about products, services, discounts and business updates.

If you don’t want to receive marketing, you can tell us any time by emailing us at

If you opt out of marketing, we’ll still send you important service information. We prepare campaign lists in advance so you may not stop receiving marketing communications immediately after opting out.

If you choose to get marketing information from us, we may use profiling and automated decision making to make our marketing more relevant, e.g. personalising the channels, marketing messages and the information you’re sent. 

Where we make an automated decision that has a legal or substantially similar effect, you may request a team member to review that decision. We will consider your comments and assess whether the decision was made correctly.

If you participate in any of our competitions, prize draws and similar promotions, we will use your personal information to administer these activities. These activities have additional terms and conditions which will contain more information about how we use and share your personal information.

If you send us your personal information to enter a competition, prize draw or similar promotion, we will process your entry details to allow for winners to be contacted after the closing date. Please refer to the specific terms and conditions of the competition, prize draw or promotion that you are entering for further details. 

If you enter via social media channels, your personal information is subject to the retention and deletion process of that channel, so please refer to them directly for information on how your data will be processed.

We may share personal information with market research agencies who will conduct market research and business analysis on our behalf.

When you contact us, personal information that you give us will be recorded and stored on our systems. 

Calls and web chats will be recorded. This helps us improve our service, train our staff and respond to complaints.

All communications will be in English. You can get documents from us in braille, large print or audio format by contacting us.
