How is your data stored and kept secure?

We do share your data with organisations such as Amazon who are based outside the EEA, however where we do so we will ensure that those organisations have appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to protect your data, such as (in the case of organisations based in the USA for instance), requiring that they are signed up to Privacy Shield or have signed up to EU model contract clauses.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. More information is available by contacting us.

You have the following rights. You can exercise these rights at any time by contacting us at hello@icarusparts.com. You have the right:

  • to ask for data portability if the processing is carried out by automated means and the legal basis for processing is consent or contract.

Should you have any issues, concerns or problems in relation to your data, or wish to notify us of data which is inaccurate, please let us know by contacting us using the contact details below.
