AA Japan (PVT) LTD. is committed to protect your privacy and takes its responsibilities to secure customer information seriously. This policy informs how we use customer information and how we protect your privacy.
Use of Customer Information
We require certain information to allow us to process your vehicle. Al Ain Japan Pvt Ltd (also known as AA Japan), from here on referred to as AA Japan, collects the details provided by you, together with the information we learn about you from your use of our service and your visits to our web site and other sites accessible from them. We also collect information about the transactions you undertake including details of payments.
We may collect additional information in connection with your participation in any promotions or competitions offered by us and information you provide when giving us feedback.
We will use your information to provide and personalize our service to you. We will also use your contact details to communicate with you. We may contact you by email, telephone (including SMS), third party messaging app, fax or post. Confirmation emails you may receive from us (which may include details of car bookings or other services booked through our websites) may include marketing material which we may feel will be of interest to you.
If you have subscribed to AA Japan newsletter or stock updates, AA Japan will send you emails related to company news, stock update and any other information that AA Japan deems may be of interest to you. You can opt-out of receiving e-mail updates at any time by going to your account page.
Your data may be used in part or as a whole for the following purposes: accounting, billing and audit, administrative and legal purposes, statistical and marketing analysis, systems testing, maintenance and development, customer surveys, customer relations and to help us in any future dealings with you, for example by identifying your requirements and preferences.
Once you have registered into AA Japan (PVT) LTD, you will be provided with access to a "My Profile" page that allows you to customize our commercial communications to your preferences.
We also like to hear your feedback to help us improve our service. We may contact you by post, e-mail, telephone, fax or chat, using third party apps, to seek your opinion.
We may also use and analyze the information that we collect so that we can administer, support, improve and develop our business. The information that you provide to us will be held in our systems which are in our premises or those of an appointed third party.
We may also allow access to your information by other third parties who act for us for the purposes set out in this policy or for other purposes. It is possible that your data may be processed outside of Japan.
We use tracking software to monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the site to better meet the needs of visitors to aajapancars.com. This software does not enable us to capture any personally identifying information.
Customer Data Security and Confidentiality
When you book a vehicle or enter personally identifying information, your details are transmitted across the internet securely using high-grade encryption (128 bit).
Furthermore, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information you have given us, to prevent unauthorized access. Our security procedures mean that we may request proof of identity before we are able to disclose sensitive information to you.
In the circumstances set out in this policy where AA Japan passes your information to a third party, we will ensure that the security measures that such party has in place in relation to the processing of your data are at least as stringent as those employed by AA Japan.
This does not apply where we are required by law to pass your information to a third party. We will retain your information for a reasonable period or as long as the law requires.
