Use of IP addresses

An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're browsing on the internet. Web servers, the big computers that 'serve up' internet pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. We collect IP addresses for the purpose of system administration, to create reports and to audit the use of our site. When you use our site, our servers or computers log your IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that you remain anonymous to us.

Security measures

Secure storage of your personally identifiable information is of utmost importance to us.

We use 256 bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption across our website (as do SEE Tickets). This system encrypts your personal information so that it cannot be read if intercepted by a malicious third party.

Within Classic Historic Racing Limited, only those employees who need access to your information in order to do their jobs are permitted access. Any employee who violates our privacy and/or security policies is subject to disciplinary action, including possible termination and civil and/or criminal prosecution.

We will NEVER ask you for password information in an unsolicited phone call or e-mail. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information.

Remember to sign out of our website and close your browser window when you have finished what you've been doing; this is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if your computer or mobile device could be accessible to others.

Third party sites

We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of any third party sites linked to our website. As a result, we advise you to read their privacy policies before submitting data to such sites. Please note that when purchasing tickets, you leave our website and your transaction will be processed by the SEE Tickets website.

Your rights

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to access any information that we hold relating to you.

On receipt of such a request we will endeavour to respond to you as soon as possible, but at least within one calendar month.  You must provide us with 2 forms of personal identity to ensure that we only disclose to you information which is relevant to you personally.  You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights).  However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive.  Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

You also have the right to control the processing we are doing and, in some circumstances, can ask us to erase your data.

You may unsubscribe from receiving targeted updates from us at any time or update your preferences. A link to enable you to do this is available with all our email communications. Alternatively, email us at newsletter@silverstoneclassic.com and we can make these updates on your behalf.

If you are unhappy about how we handle your data enquiries you may complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office at https://ico.org.uk/

Changes to our company

In the event we go through a business transition such as a merger or acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your personal data may be among the assets transferred.

Disclaimer

We strive to protect your identity and privacy, but we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you disclose online, and you do so at your own risk.

By using our website you are deemed to accept, understand and have followed the advice of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy or to the advice we give, please do not use our website.

We reserve the right to make changes to this policy from time to time as necessary. Your continued use of this and any other sites owned by us following the posting of any such changes to these terms implies acceptance of those changes.
