This privacy statement explains how Castrol intends to process your personal information through the Castrol Oil Essentials Program website.
WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY
You were emailed a link to register as a Castrol Oil Essentials Program user by a BP/Castrol staff member (a “Market Administrator”) or an authorized distributor of Castrol (a “Distributor Administrator”) who wishes to invite you to register for their Castrol Oil Essentials Program user group. Please note that Castrol did not supply your contact information to the Distributor Administrator.
If you wish to register for the Castrol Oil Essentials Program website and accept to be bound by our Terms and Conditions, you will be asked to provide the minimum personal information necessary for us to create your account (i.e., your name and email address). This processing is necessary for the performance of the contract we have with you, which is governed by our Terms & Conditions.
Castrol may also use your contact details to contact you with information on additional products and/or services and/or offers/promotions that Castrol reasonably thinks may be of interest to you; however, we will only send you marketing communications in line with your previously expressed preferences. If you no longer wish to receive such communications, please follow the opt-out instructions contained in each marketing communication.
