    • Why don't you actually READ the sellers advert before talking tosh. The seller's advert offers an optional  12 months breakdown warranty cover,  warranties generally do not cover anything related to wear and tear and especially everything on an old banger will be excluded.  OP should have studied the terms of any such warranty before purchasing it, if he did purchase it.     Also, the sellers advert at NO point states the car has NO faults. READ the sellers advert before jumping to huge conclusions.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Are you aware when visiting a car dealership and providing your name, you are discussed in sales meetings by name?

 

Are you aware when you give your data to a car dealership that they can discuss you in other towns with other dealers in their network?

 

Do you know that a record is kept and a file on you on every call and email you send in to the dealer? Are you aware this is kept and logged in a file on you?

 

I support that dealers should allow you to OPT out from this and also make you aware when calling, emailing or making enquiries that you are informed on how your data, information and comments are used.

 

What do you think?

Yep but when you do not buy a car from them but keep getting phone calls from the dealer and mail shots from the manufacturer.

I think we are missing the point here :)

 

I have yet to purchase a vehicle, I am simply deciding if the vehicle is right for me.

 

Marketing is not using data you have gathered for purposes that you are not aware of. Marketing however might be what gets me there in the first place.

 

Following up a sales lead is fine. Taking data and using it for business and research purposes is unfair unless you are aware of it.

How is it fraud?

Data sharing can involve fraud but doesn't have to.

Fraud could involve data sharing but doesn't have to.

 

It may be a breach of the data protection act, but it is quite some leap to allege fraud, and you haven't explained how you've made that leap.

 

Also : Why have you re-opened a year old thread?

From past actions it seems being-DUN is jumping in on threads just for the sake of clocking up posts!

Why would Being Dun - want to bump a post - and why is that an issue if the content is of value to a reader? I'm glad it has been raised again actually because this type of data use should be made clear.

 

Whilst using data for lead or funnel processing the notion of being discussed and treated as a lead is really quite low.

 

John Lewis might collect your data but they dont all have a staff meeting and say "Ok so Mrs Johnson, why has she not bought more curtains this year? Dave? You were handling Mrs Johnson"

 

Asda? "Ok so Mr Bantock has spent £8236 with us in groceries this year... hm this is quite low" "Yes well when he came to the till, he said he wasn't keen on the price of Marmite" "Hm, yes good feedback, when he comes in again, can we all be sure to bear this in mind when talking to him, frankly unless he spends £8450 this year, he might be a lost leader, ok next Ruth Johnson.. hm, shes not spent much on nappies this month"

I am also agree with connif. Because if they did not collect our data, how can they inform about the services and all?. So it is the thing to think about.
