Information provided by you is not shared with any third party for marketing purposes. We aim to take all reasonable security measures to protect your personal data and these measures are subject to regular review. The legal basis for holding your personal data is the performance of a contract which is created every time that work is carried out on your vehicle. We will hold the information for as long as necessary but if you have not used our services for a period of 2 years it will be classed as ‘outdated’ data and be deleted to protect your personal information.

We always aim to make sure that your personal data is accurate and up-to-date and will review this as part of our monitoring process.
Data Protection legislation gives you many rights and these include: the right to make a subject access request. This means that you have control of your personal data and can request that we advise you clearly as to what information we hold about you, how we use that information, and whether it has been shared with anyone else. Your rights include asking us to amend any data which is inaccurate, adding information to data which is incomplete, and asking us to remove any data about you unless we can show legal justification to retain it.

The law relating to the protection of your personal data can be a little confusing and is changing all the time. If you don’t understand the purpose of this privacy notice, or why the protection of your personal data has become an even more important issue recently, then just ask for clarification from one of our Management Team.

Hoddens Ltd was established in 2005, and Phil and Tim have over 20 years of experience in the industry working within a major Ford dealer; now we can provide a specialist service on Ford vehicles without the cost implications.
In addition, our technicians undertake work on all makes and models to an exceptional standard.
Some of our customers are unaware that going to an independent dealer for parts and labour does not invalidate your warranty. As a Ford specialist we use manufacturers' tools and IDS diagnostic equipment.
The only difference between using ourselves and the dealer is the price you pay.
