We use Third party cookies and other technologies for marketing purposes and to gather website analytics. This includes:
- Remarketing and emails: we use third party cookies – such as Google Analytics and the Facebook Pixel – to keep track of the products and services you’re interested in and remarket them to you when you leave our site (as a result, you may see ads from Pit Stop when you visit other websites).
You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting how you visit our site. For more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics please visit this page.
You can also ask your browser to delete or block third party cookies: simply search online for “cookies” + the name of your internet browser (for example, “Google Chrome”) for step-by-step instructions.
We use a number of mechanisms to protect the security and integrity of your personal information such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol on our website and password protected environments for our website administration.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed as completely secure. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.
Once any personal information comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Changing your personal information
You have the right to ask for a copy of any personal information we hold about you, and to ask for it to be corrected if you think it is wrong. If you’d like to ask for a copy of your information, or to have it corrected, please contact:
