Collecting your personal information
STP is a trusted market leader and manufacturer of performance automative car care products , sold in countries around the world including Australia & New Zealand under the well known STP brand. We are committed to producing quality products which exceed our customer’s expectations.
Depending on your involvement with STP, we may collect personal information about you such as your name, your contact details, and other information about your circumstances and preferences. Where we do not have your personal information, we are not able to contact you or deal with your requests.
We collect this information when we ask you for it and you provide it, such as when you contact us with a query about our products, order our products, enter a promotion or competition or participate at our websites, social media or at motorsport events supported by STP.
We may also collect your personal information from third parties to enable us to contact you and tell you about our products and services. Where you prefer that we do not collect your personal information, we may not be able to process your order, deal with your requests or contact you.
Like many companies, we use technology and tools that tell us when a computer or device has visited or accessed our content. Those tools include services from search engines and other companies that help us to tailor our products and services to better suit our customers and potential customers. Search engines provide facilities to allow you to indicate your preferences in relation to the use of those tools in connection with computers and other devices controlled or used by you.
