Web Site Navigational Information

Cookies, Web Beacons and IP Addresses

GCL uses commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and Web beacons, to collect information as you navigate the GCL Websites (“Web Site Navigational Information”). As described more fully below, we and our partners use these cookies or similar technologies to analyse trends, administer Websites and Services, track users’ movements around our Websites and Services, serve targeted advertisements and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. This section describes the types of Web Site Navigational Information used on the Company’s Websites and Services, and how this information may be used.


GCL uses cookies to make interactions with the GCL Websites easy and meaningful. When you visit one of the GCL Websites, GCL servers send a cookie to your computer or device. Standing alone, cookies do not personally identify you; they merely recognise your Web browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to GCL, either by responding to a promotional offer, opening an account, or filling out a Web form (such as a “Contact Me” or a “Free Trial” Web form) or have previously identified yourself to GCL, you remain anonymous to the Company.

GCL uses cookies that are session-based and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during one session. They disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer or device after you close your browser or turn off your computer. You can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level, but if you choose to disable cookies, it may limit your use of certain features or functions on our Websites or Services.

The following sets out how GCL uses different categories of cookies and your options for managing cookies’ settings:

Required cookies enable you to navigate the GCL Websites and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the Websites and using GCL Services.

Because required cookies are essential to operating the GCL Websites and the Services, there is no option to opt out of these cookies.

Functionality cookies

Functionality cookies allow the GCL Websites and Services to remember information you have entered or choices you make (such as your username, language, or your region) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies also enable you to optimise your use of GCL Websites and Services after logging in. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise.

To manage the use of functionality cookies on this Website, or to opt out of their use, click "Cookie Preferences" in the footer of this page. Note that opting out may impact the functionality you receive when using GCL's Websites and Services.

Log Files, IP Addresses, URLs and Other Data

As is true of most Websites, we gather certain information automatically to analyse trends in the aggregate and administer our Websites and Services. This information may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), device and application identification numbers, your location, your browser type, your Internet service provider and/or mobile carrier, the pages and files you viewed, your searches, your operating system and system configuration information, and date/time stamps associated with your usage. Due to Internet communications standards, when you visit or use the Company’s Web sites and Services, we automatically receive the URL of the website from which you came and the website to which you go when you leave our Website. This information is used to analyse overall trends, to help us improve our Websites and Services, to track and aggregate non-personal information, and to provide the Websites and Services. For example, GCL uses IP addresses to monitor the regions from which Customers and Visitors navigate the GCL Websites. GCL also collects IP addresses from Customers when they log into the Services as part of the Company’s “Identity Confirmation” and “IP Range Restrictions” security features.

Social Media Features and Single Sign-on

The GCL Websites may use social media features, such as the Facebook “like” "join" button (“Social Media Features”). These features may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on the GCL Web site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. You may be given the option by such Social Media Features to post information about your activities on the GCL Website to a profile page of yours that is provided by a third party social media network in order to share with others within your network. Social Media Features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on the GCL web site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing the relevant Social Media Features. GCL also allows you to log in to certain of our Websites and Services using sign-in services such as Facebook Connect. These services will authenticate your identity and provide you with the option to share certain personal information with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign-up form.

Do Not Track

Currently, various browsers — including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari — offer a “do not track” or “DNT” option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to Websites’ visited by the user about the user's browser DNT preference setting. Northern Vehicles Limited does not currently commit to responding to browsers' DNT signals with respect to the Company's Websites, in part, because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies or regulators, including no consistent standard of interpreting user intent. Northern Vehicles Limited takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.

Public forums, refer a contact, and customer testimonials

Northern Vehicles Limited may provide bulletin boards, blogs, or chat rooms on the Company’s Websites. Any personal information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages. Northern Vehicles Limited is not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums.

Customers and Visitors may elect to use the Company’s referral program to inform contacts about the Company’s Websites and Services. When using the referral program, the Company requests the contact’s name and email address. Northern Vehicles Limited will automatically send the contact a one–time email inviting him or her to visit the Company’s Websites. Northern Vehicles Limited does not store this information.

Northern Vehicles Limited posts a list of Customers and testimonials on the Company’s Websites that contain information such as Customer names and titles. Northern Vehicles Limited obtains the consent of each Customer prior to posting any information on such a list or posting testimonials.

Sharing of information collected
Service Providers

Northern Vehicles Limited may share Data about Northern Vehicles Limited Visitors, Customers and Customers with the Company’s contracted service providers so that these service providers can provide services on our behalf. These service providers are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide the requested services to us. Without limiting the foregoing, Northern Vehicles Limited may also share Data about Northern Vehicles Limited Visitors, Customers and Customers with the Company’s service providers to ensure the quality of information provided, and with third-party social networking and media Websites, such as Facebook, for marketing and advertising on those Websites. Unless described in this Privacy Statement, Northern Vehicles Limited does not share, sell, rent, or trade any information with third parties for their promotional purposes.

GCL Affiliates

The Company may share Data about GCL Customers with other companies in order to work with them, including affiliates of the GCL group.

Third Parties

Section 4 of this Privacy Statement, Web Site Navigational Information, specifically addresses the information we or third parties collect through cookies and web beacons, and how you can control cookies through your Web browsers. We may also disclose your personal information to any third party with your prior consent.


GCL uses a third-party service provider to manage credit card processing. This service provider is not permitted to store, retain, or use Billing Information except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on GCL's behalf.

Compelled Disclosure

GCL reserves the right to use or disclose information provided if required by law or if the Company reasonably believes that use or disclosure is necessary to protect GCL's rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.

International transfer of information collected
