This website www.masai4x4.com is owned by Masai / Omega Automotive Ltd. , referred to hereafter for purposes of this policy as “the Company”, “we”, “us”, “our” or “Masai”.
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) lay down certain rules in relation to the way personal data is collected, stored and disposed of.
We are committed to upholding the Data Protection Principles in the interests of protecting personal data from being collected or processed inappropriately and this document explains how we use any personal data we collect about you, or others whose information is provided to us, as well as your rights in relation to this data.
As a manufacturer and supplier, we process personal data in the capacity of a ‘data processor’- this being any person, other than an employee of the data controller, who processes personal data on behalf of the data controller. This is most likely to be the case when obtaining and processing personal data for the sale transaction or sales enquiry.
We are also considered to be a ‘data controller’ for some data, this being the person who either jointly or alone determines the purposes for which personal data can be processed. This is most likely to occur when obtaining, storing and processing data regarding the administration of customer accounts or marketing activity.

We collect information from you through telephone conversations, online messaging services, emails we send that you read and click, the pages you visit on our website after clicking emails or completing online forms and of course face-to-face.
Data you provide with consent is held until you withdraw that consent. Data about how you engage with us, such as reading emails and browsing web pages is held for up to 6 years from the last time you engage with us.
