Privacy Statement

SEAT, a trading division of Volkswagen Group United Kingdom Limited (“we”/”us”) are committed to protecting and respecting any personal information you share with us.

This statement describes what types of information we collect from you, how it is used by us, how we share data with others, how you can manage the information we hold and how you can contact us.

The information below describes processing relating to the information we obtain from you and other visitors and customers through a variety of different interactions, including when you visit our websites or social media pages, place an order to purchase a vehicle, or contact our customer services centre.

We may supplement this privacy statement with an additional statement or information that we will provide to you in relation to any additional activities we carry out using your personal information.

What are our roles and responsibilities?

For the purposes of data protection laws, Volkswagen Group United Kingdom Limited is a ‘controller’ of your personal information which means Volkswagen Group United Kingdom Limited decides why and how it is processed.  It also means we are responsible for that processing, which extends to those of our subcontractors who process your information based on our instructions. 

We work with other, more independent organisations in connection with some of the processing activities described in this statement, such as social media platforms, authorised dealers and our group companies.  Where that information is collected and sent to other organisations for processing that is in both our and their interests, or where we make decisions together in relation to the processing, we will be ‘joint controllers’ with the organisations involved. As joint controllers, we and the other organisations involved in making these decisions will be jointly responsible to you under data protection laws for this processing.  Please see the relevant privacy statement below relating to organisations with whom we are joint controllers:

·         Joint privacy statement with our authorised dealers relating to enquiries and expressions of interest we receive, including where your vehicle or your interactions indicate you would like to be contacted by those dealers

·         Joint privacy statement with Volkswagen Financial Services relating to its follow up activities to renew your finance contract

·         Joint privacy statements with social media companies relating to processing of your information for marketing and insight related activities (see ‘How do we share this information?’ below)

Where relevant, our Cookie Policy will also describe the processing of any information we receive through the use of cookies on our website for which we are a joint controller with another organisation.

In other circumstances, the organisation receiving your information will be separately responsible to you and use your personal information in the ways described in its privacy statement (and not ours).

You will always have the option not to receive marketing communications from us. We will never send you unsolicited ‘junk’ email or communications, or share your data with anyone else who might. We do not sell your information to third parties, but we do work closely with our authorised dealers and repairers, Volkswagen Financial Services and selected partners who help us to provide you with the information, products and services that you request from us, for example, the AA, who provides roadside assistance on our behalf or energy companies in connection with vehicle charging services.

The contents of this statement may change from time to time so you may wish to check this page occasionally to ensure you are still happy to share your information with us. Where possible, we will also contact you directly to notify you of any substantial changes.

This version of our Privacy Statement is live from 22 March 2024

Legitimate Interests

We may use and process your personal information as set out below where it is necessary for us to carry out activities for which it is in our legitimate interests as a business to do so.

Processing necessary for us to support customers with sales and other enquiries

1.   To respond to correspondence you send to us and fulfil the requests you make to us (for example: test drives, service requests, brochure requests or information about specific vehicles);

2.   To provide vehicle support and services (for example warranty services);

3.   To provide service, maintenance and warranty information and reminders including operating instructions and guides, unless you object;

Processing necessary for us to respond to understanding customers’ and drivers’ needs

4.   To analyse, evaluate and improve our products and services so that your visit and use of our website, applications, customer service centre and dealer network are more useful and enjoyable (we will generally use data amalgamated from many people so that it doesn’t identify you personally);

5.   To undertake market analysis and research (including contacting you with customer surveys) so that we can better understand you as a customer and provide tailored offers, products and services that we think you will be interested in.  We will only send such offers to you if you have provided your consent for us to do so;

6.   For product development purposes (for example to improve vehicle quality, performance and safety);

7.   We use automated methods to analyse, combine and evaluate information that you have provided to us (including by using information we receive from third party data providers and by receiving and sharing your personal information within our group of companies like Volkswagen Financial Services), see details about our relevant group companies under ‘How do we share this information?’ below.

We collect and analyse this information in this way so that we can deliver the most appropriate customer experience to you by tailoring and making relevant all our services and communications, including by making predictions about your current or future needs or interests (for example, when you might be ready to change your vehicle and the models you may be interested in);

You have the right to object to us sending you this information at any time;

9.   To contact you from time to time with marketing information (unless you object) if you have expressly indicated to us that you are acting on behalf of a corporate business or where we have obtained your corporate business contact details from our authorised dealer network or an online or public business directory. In relation to any such information we send by email or SMS, we will include an option allowing you to object to receiving future messages by unsubscribing;

11.  To use mathematical and statistical methods to create information and offers customised for you based on your information, including by making predictions about your behaviour and your and your vehicle’s needs.  This may include predicting your preferences, when your vehicle may need its next service, your likelihood of making another purchase, your loyalty to a vehicle brand or model as well as making suitable product recommendations tailored to you.

12.   To contact you with targeted advertising delivered online through social media, search engines, third party websites and applications and other platforms operated by other companies, such as Google, unless you object.  You may receive advertising based on information about you that we have provided to the platform, matched with information it already holds about you or allowed it to collect using cookies on our website or code in our applications (or a combination of the two).  You may also receive advertising because, at our request, the platform has identified you as falling within a group whose attributes we have selected or a group that has similar attributes to the individuals whose details it has received from us (or a combination of the two). We, or an agency acting on our behalf, may also ask platforms to display our advertisements to groups of people with certain interests or attributes and those platforms may use information that they have collected from you directly, independently of any request from us. In these cases, we may never receive that information or know that our advertisement has been seen by you specifically.  The information used to display an advertisement to you online may also be used to avoid displaying an advertisement (for example, to avoid showing you an advert for a product you have already purchased).  You may see our advertisements in your social media feed or when you use search engines, view videos or visit other websites.  To find out more, please refer to the information provided in the help pages of the platforms on which you receive advertising from us.  Please also see the section below for further information regarding our use of social media platforms specifically;

Legal Obligation

We may process your personal information to comply with our legal or regulatory requirements (for example to register your car with the DVLA, to assist, or respond to a request for information from, an authorised authority, regulatory body or court, or to respond to a court order).  These requirements include processing to remember your cookie consent preferences for optional cookies used by our website.  Please see our Cookie Policy for further information.

Vital Interest

Sometimes we will need to process your personal information to contact you if there is an urgent safety or product recall notice and we need to tell you about it.

How do we share information?

We do not sell your information to third parties, but we do work closely with our dealer network, Volkswagen Financial Services, our group companies and with third party suppliers who fulfil business activities for us (like roadside assistance, marketing, events, social media platforms and market research etc.)

Service providers

We do not sell your information to third parties.

We will also share your information with our dealer network in situations where we need to pass your information to them in order to manage any request, provide a service (including to fulfil and manage your orders) or handle any complaint you may have made to us. For example, where you have requested a test drive, we will need to share your personal information with your selected dealer so that they can contact you to arrange for the test drive to take place.

Sharing for legal reasons

We will also share your personal information if we have a duty to do so, e.g. to register your car with the DVLA, to assist an authorised authority, regulatory body or court, or to enforce or protect our legal rights or to establish, bring or defend legal claims.

Group companies

There are also circumstances where we share your information with our parent (or other companies within our Group) in order to understand you as a customer, fulfil orders, transactions, handle complaints or provide you with a service or information that you have requested. For example, we will share information with Volkswagen Financial Services UK Limited where you enquire about their services through us or where you make a complaint to us and later make the same or similar complaint to them. Volkswagen Financial Services UK Limited may use your information to provide you with information and carry out their obligations arising from contracts you enter into with them.

Social Media Platforms

We use a number of different social media platforms to communicate with you and to promote products and services. We process your personal information using these platforms in a variety of ways, as follows:


We use your personal information when you post content or otherwise interact with us on our official pages on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Snapchat, TikTok and other social media platforms. We also use the Page Insights service for Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn to view statistical information and reports regarding your interactions with the pages we administer on those platforms and their content.  Where those interactions are recorded and form part of the information we access through these Page Insights services, we and the relevant platform are joint controllers of the processing necessary to provide that service to us.


We use cookies and similar technologies in our websites and applications to collect and send information to Facebook and LinkedIn about actions you take on our website and applications.  In particular:

·         Meta (who operates the Facebook and Instagram platforms) uses this information to provide services to us and also for further processing for its own business purposes. We and Meta are joint data controllers of the processing involved in collecting and sending your personal information to Meta using cookies and similar technologies as each of us has a business interest in Meta receiving this information.  You can find out more about these technologies by visiting our Cookies Policy.  The services we receive from Meta that use this information are delivered to us through Meta Business Tools, which include Meta Pixel, Social Plugins, App Events SDK and Website Custom Audiences. These tools allow us to target advertising to you within Meta’s social media platforms by creating audiences based on your actions on our Website and allow Meta to improve and optimise the targeting and delivery of our advertising campaigns for us.

·         We use LinkedIn Insight Tag, a small piece of code that we embed in our websites that allows us to perform in-depth campaign reporting and unlock insights about users that may visit our websites via our LinkedIn campaigns (e.g. by allowing us to discover business demographics by layering LinkedIn data on data about our website visitors).  LinkedIn Insight Tag enables the collection of metadata such as IP addresses, timestamps, and events such as page views.  You can find out more about these technologies by visiting our Cookie Policy.

Our relationship with Meta and LinkedIn. 

As we are joint data controllers with these platforms for certain processing, we and each platform have:

·         entered into agreements in which we have agreed each of our data protection responsibilities for the processing of your personal information described above;

·         agreed that we are responsible for providing to you the information in this privacy notice about our relationship with each platform; and

·         agreed that each platform is responsible for responding to you when you exercise your rights under data protection law in relation to that platform’s processing of your personal information as a joint data controller.

Meta and LinkedIn also process, as our processor, contact information that we submit for the purposes of matching, online targeting, measurement, reporting and analytics purposes.  These services include the processing these platforms carry out when they display our advertisements to you in your news feed at our request after matching contact details for you that we have uploaded to the social media platforms they operate.  These advertisements may include forms through which we collect contact information you give to us.

Other organisations

We may share your personal information with commercial partners with whom we collaborate and also with organisations in the wider automotive community that we support. For example, we may share limited information with third party rewards schemes or with vehicle charging and capacity planning organisations to ensure that the infrastructure necessary to allow you to use your vehicle is in place.

Transfers outside Europe

Due to the international nature of our business, there may be some instances where your information is processed or stored outside of the UK. Those countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK and so may not protect the use of your personal information to the same standard. In those instances, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Privacy Statement. These steps include imposing contractual obligations on the recipient of your personal information using standard clauses issued by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (or other relevant body) and relying on decisions issued by the relevant UK Secretary of State (or other relevant person) declaring that a recipient or country is adequately protective of personal information to a degree that allows us to safely transfer your personal information to that recipient or country.  This includes any international frameworks that allow recipients to certify that they can receive your personal information safely and process it in a manner that is protected to an equivalent standard as that under UK laws.

Please contact us using the details at the end of this Privacy Statement for more information about the protections that we put in place and to obtain a copy of the relevant documents.

If you use our services whilst you are outside the UK, your information may be transferred outside the UK in order to receive those services.


We take steps to ensure that any third party partners who handle your information comply with data protection legislation and protect your information just as we do. We only disclose personal information that is necessary for them to provide the service that they are undertaking on our behalf. We will aim to anonymise your information including using aggregated datasets where ever possible.

How long do we keep your information for?

We will not hold your personal information in an identifiable format for any longer than is necessary. If you are a customer or otherwise have a relationship with us we will hold personal information about you for a longer period than if we have obtained your details in connection with a prospective relationship.

We do not retain personal information in an identifiable format for longer than is necessary.

Customer/driver relationships

If we have a relationship with you (e.g. you are a customer or the registered driver of a leased or other vehicle purchased from us or an authorised dealer), we hold your personal information for 6 years from the date our relationship ends. We hold your personal information after our relationship ends to establish, bring or defend legal claims and for marketing purposes. For clarity, if you have provided your consent, we will continue to send marketing to you during those 6 years unless you opt-out. Our relationship may end for a number of reasons including where the vehicle warranty or lease expires, or we have been made aware that you no longer own or drive that vehicle.

Prospective relationships

Where we have obtained your personal information following a request for information, test drive, brochure, quotation or any other information on any of our products or services, we hold your personal information for 1 year and 6 months from the date we collect that information, unless during that period we form a relationship with you e.g. you purchase or lease a vehicle or consent for us to send you marketing information.

Where you have consented to receive marketing, regardless of whether or not we have a prospective relationship with you based on an information request, we will retain information we need to market to you for 3 years and 6 months from the date consent was given (unless you are a customer/driver, for which a longer period applies – see further above). Each time you provide your consent, the time period will refresh.

We hold your personal information for the above periods to give us an opportunity to form a relationship with you.


The only exceptions to the periods mentioned above are where:

·         The law requires us to hold your personal information for a longer period, or delete it sooner;

·         Where you have raised a legal claim, complaint or concern regarding a product or service offered by us, in which case we will retain your information for a period of 6 years following the date of that complaint or query; or

·         You exercise your right to have the information erased (where it applies) and we do not need to hold it in connection with any of the reasons permitted or required under the law (see further ’How can you manage the information we hold about you?’ below); 

How can you manage the information we hold about you?

You have the right as an individual to access your personal information we hold about you and make corrections if necessary. You also have the right to withdraw any consent you have previously given us and ask us to erase information we hold about you. You can also object to us using your personal information (where we rely on our business interests to process and use your personal information).  

You have a number of rights in relation to your personal information under data protection law. In relation to most rights, we will ask you for information to confirm your identity and, where applicable, to help us search for your personal information. Except in rare cases, we will respond to you within 1 month after we have received any request (including any identification documents requested).

You have the right to:

1.     Ask for a copy of the information that we hold about you;

2.     Correct and update your information;

3.     Withdraw your consent (where we rely on it). Please see further ’How do we use this information?’ on this page;

4.     Object to our use of your information (for direct marketing, or where we rely on our legitimate interests to use your personal information) provided we do not have any continuing lawful reason to continue to use and process the information.  When we do rely on our legitimate interests to use your personal information for direct marketing, we will always comply with your right to object;

5.     Erase your information (or restrict the use of it), provided we do not have any continuing lawful reason to continue to use and process that information;

6.     Transfer your information in a structured data file (in a commonly used and machine readable format), where we rely on your consent to use and process your personal information or need to process it in connection with your contract.

You also have the right not to be subject to purely automated decisions (including profiling) where this has a significant effect on you. We do not envisage that any decisions will be taken about you in this way, however we will update this statement if this changes.
