How to protect your data

We have the appropriate technical and administrative security measures to ensure that our users' data is protected from unauthorized or accidental access, use, alteration, or loss. Taken measures are regularly checked and continually adapted to the current state of the technology.

How do we share your information

CARWIZ may submit your personal information to third parties in the following cases: 

  • for the purpose of fulfilling the legal obligations, e. for the delivery to courts or other competent authorities, during or in the conduct of civil, criminal, misdemeanor or other proceedings
  • for the protection of the rights, safety or property of CARWIZ;
  • for the purpose of concluding and / or executing contracts or processing transactions with intermediaries, agencies through which you have contacted CARWIZ

CARWIZ will in any case, when sharing your personal information with third parties, prohibit the use of your personal data for a different purpose than the contracted one, and will bind third parties on keeping confidentiality of your personal information.

How long do we keep your data

Personal data will be kept in a form that allows identification only for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which personal data is processed. Or how certain regulations of our country require the processing manager to keep personal data confidential. Personal data may be stored for a longer period under certain prescribed conditions, such as for statistical purposes, for purposes of archiving in the public interest.

In the case when your data is handled on the basis of your privation, if you revoke the privilege we will stop processing your data and will no longer use it, but that may result in the inability to use some of the additional benefits associated with it. 

Please note that your data will not be deleted at the specified time intervals if a forced payment of unpaid due claims has been initiated or if another procedure is initiated, then personal data will be deleted after the final settlement of the same procedure or statutory limitation of statutory claims which regulate compulsory and legal relations.
