By sending your details, you enable WIZ RACING and its service providers to give you the services you select.

2 Information on visitors

We only get an overview of information on our visitors and do use cookies. The information which we collect on visitors to our site includes the time and date of visit, IP address, operating system, browser, screen resolution and colour depth.

3 What is a cookie?

When you enter a site your computer will automatically be issued with a cookie. Cookies are text files that identify your computer to our server. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used. Many sites do this when a user visits their site to track traffic flows.

Cookies themselves only record those areas of the site that have been visited by the computer in question, and for how long. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to tell them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time.

4 Submitting personal information

When you supply any personal information to WIZ RACING (eg for competitions, quotes or for personalised services) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it. Any information you give to WIZ RACING will only be used by our company. It will never be supplied to anyone outside WIZ RACING without first obtaining your consent, unless we are obliged by law to disclose it. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested. We will make sure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

5 Access to your personal information

You have the right to ask for a copy of the personal information WIZ RACING holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We charge £10 for information requests.) Please address requests to the Data Protection Officer.


6 Social Plugins & Your Privacy -What are social plugins?

Social plugins are buttons, boxes and stories (such as the Like button) that other websites can use to present Facebook content to you and create more social and personal experiences for you. When you use social plugins (ex: when you click the like button on your favorite websites), it's visible to the people you share with on Facebook. Social plugins rely on standard web technologies used by lots of websites. When you use social plugins, Facebook takes great care to make sure that your privacy is protected. If you’re logged into Facebook and visit a website with the Like button or another social plugin, your browser sends us information about your visit. Keep in mind that Facebook isn't retrieving this info. Since the Like button is a little piece of Facebook embedded on another website, the browser is sending info about the request to load Facebook content on that page. Facebook record some of this info for a limited amount of time to help show you a personalized experience on that site and to improve our products. For example, when you go to a website with a Like button, we need to know who you are in order to show you what your Facebook friends have liked on that site. The data we receive includes your user ID, the website you're visiting, the date and time and other browser-related info. If you’re logged out or don’t have a Facebook account and visit a website with the Like button or another social plugin, your browser sends Facebook a more limited set of info. For example, because you’re not logged into Facebook, you’ll have fewer cookies than someone who's logged in. Like other sites on the Internet, Facebook receive info about the web page you're visiting, the date and time and other browser-related info. Facebook record this info for a limited amount of time to help us improve products.
