What does Classic Car Safe do with your personal information?

Your personal information.

Classic Car Safe will combine the different types of data held to create a membership profile for each customer. This helps us to provide you with a personalised service, most accurately suited to your needs.

As well as using this information to customise our service to you, we may also make recommendations to you about products and services we think may be of interest. Selected advertising may also be made available to you for the same reason.
