If you provide Cambrian Tyres with personal information other than through the website, you will be provided with any further explanation needed as to how it will be used.

We may for example, keep a record of your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, preferences and any other information you volunteer to provide to us. We may supplement the information that you provide to us with information that we receive or obtain from other sources.
