Applus+ Car Testing Service Limited ("NCTS" or "we") and its associated companies respect and protect your right to privacy in relation to your interactions with this website (the “Site”). Any information which is provided by you to NCTS via this Site or otherwise will be treated in accordance with the terms of the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003 (the “Acts”) and/or such amending or replacement legislation as may be adopted in Ireland from time to time.
You should be aware that each time you visit our Site, two general levels of information about your visit can be retained:
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. We use Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") technology. If your browser supports SSL then any personal data that you send will be protected during transmission by encryption. Credit and debit card details are stored in an encrypted form for additional security.
We use information held about you in the following ways:
If you wish to book a NCT test online, we will require you to provide us with your vehicle registration number, the date of first registration of your vehicle and your credit card/debit card details. We will use your vehicle registration number and the date of first registration of your vehicle to cross refer to the database of vehicles and owners which we receive from the Vehicle Registration Unit of the Department of Transport, and as a result will correlate the information which you give us to your name, address and other information.
We use your personal information to identify you as a customer, to process your booking and to deliver relevant information to you in connection with the NCT test.
You also acknowledge and agree that in certain circumstances we may be obliged to disclose personal information relating to you to third parties, for example, in order to conform to any requirements of law or to comply with any legal process, as well as to protect and defend the rights of property of NCTS, and/or our customers.
You should also be aware that where you link to another website from this Site, that NCTS has no control over that other website. Accordingly, NCTS cannot guarantee that the controller of that website will respect your privacy in the same manner as NCTS.
You have the right to request a copy of the information which we hold about you (for which we may charge you a small fee) and to have inaccuracies in the information corrected. However, as the information is received from the Vehicle Registration Unit of the Department of Transport, you will need to contact this unit in Shannon, co Clare to ensure that it holds correct and up to date information.
