Apart from Bevan Triumph, there are some other companies who will or may have access to your personal data:

  • Where we need to deliver products and services bought by you.  For example, we may need to disclose your personal data to banks and financial institutions to validate your payment details and obtain payment.  If you wish to apply for finance, we will need to send your personal data to Black Horse or Moto Novo Finance.   If we need to use a third party delivery service, we will need to pass on your name, address and contact details.

  • If we are sold to a third party.  In such a case, depending on what part of the company is acquired by the third party, your personal data may be transferred to that entity or third party.

We endeavour to ensure that all third party recipients are within the European Economic Area (EEA).  However, there may be times where it is necessary to send personal data to a recipient outside the EEA.  In such circumstances, we will use adequate measures approved by the European Commission to ensure your privacy rights are met.

In what other circumstances might we disclose your personal data?

We will always aim to treat your personal data as private and confidential.  However, there will be times where we need to employ agents and subcontractors to process your personal data on our behalf.  They will be under the same duty of confidentiality and the way in which they process your personal data will be done under our instruction.

There are some exceptional circumstances where we are allowed to or may be obliged to disclose your personal data by law:

  • Where disclosure is made at your request or with your consent to do so
  • Where we are under a duty to the public to disclose
  • Where disclosure is required in order to protect our interests
  • Where we are legally compelled to do so, for example by court order.

If you make a complaint about the service we have provided to you when applying for finance, we may be obliged to forward details about that complaint, including your personal data, to the Financial Ombudsman Service.  They are obliged to adhere to the same data protection legislation and to keep your personal data strictly confidential.  If you have any concerns about the way that they process your personal data, you should read their own privacy policy and contact them directly to discuss. 

We will never sell your personal data to any third parties.

When do we process personal data for our legitimate interests?

There are some limited circumstances where we process your personal data for our legitimate business interests.  When we process your personal data in this way, we will always balance our commercial interests against your own interests to ensure that the processing is fair.  We carry out the following processes relying on legitimate interests:

Your Marketing Preferences

We would like to keep you informed of news, products, services and events via email, telephone, SMS and social media.

If you decide you no longer wish for us to contact you for this purpose or would like to update your marketing contact preferences (i.e. the method by which we contact you) or confirm which products or services you still wish to hear about, please let us know by emailing info@bevanmc.co.uk or writing to us at Bevan Triumph, Hadfield Road, Cardiff, CF11 8AQ.

Like many other companies, we sometimes engage in online advertising and will target Bevan Triumph banners and ads to you.  We do this using specific services such as Facebook's Custom Audience service.

Where you have consented, Triumph may also contact you unless you have already opted out of this.  If you would like to opt-out of hearing from Triumph, you will need to contact them directly.

What are your Data Subject Rights?
