Terms & Conditions

The Mobile Media Specialist 'InCar Expert' web site is a resource for consumers seeking advice on the installation of aftermarket car electronics including car audio, car security, satellite navigation and other motoring aids. MMS does not endorse or oppose opinions that may be expressed by individual retailers or suppliers. All information provided on this website should be considered only a guide and not relied on in making a purchase decision - as vehicles vary considerably, we recommend that you discuss specific requirements directly with one of the specialist retailers listed in our Installer Database.

Your Privacy and Our use of Cookies

Personal Information

We collect personal information (such as your full name, postal address, e-mail address or phone number) only when you willingly and knowingly provide it, including when you register for our newsletter, contact us via our feedback form, or directly request information or help with decoding a locked radio. We use your personal information to send a newsletter or to act on and respond to your enquiries. We do not send any marketing or promotional messages.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information (information that does not seek to personally identify an individual) automatically when you visit our website. Google Analytics is installed on our site (see below for an explanation of the anonymous data Google collects and how we use it to help improve our website).

Mobile Media Specialist (MMS) will make no attempt to track or identify individual users, except where there is a reasonable suspicion that unauthorised access to systems is being attempted or where our copyright has been infringed. As a condition of use of this site, all users must give permission for MMS to use its server access logs to attempt to track users who are reasonably suspected of gaining, or attempting to gain, unauthorised access, or where a copyright infringement is reported. No access to our raw log files is given to any third party.

Explaining cookies and how we use them

Cookies are small text files stored on your computer when you visit websites. We use cookies to help identify your computer so we can tailor your user experience, track shopping basket contents and where you are in the order process, and collect general information on how our website is used, which we use to help us improve it.

There are two 'flavours' of Cookies - 'Session' cookies and 'Persistent' cookies. Session cookies are temporary and are deleted when you shut down your Web browser or turn off your computer. These are used to improve how you navigate through a website and, for example, to keep track of your shopping basket contents.
'Persistent' cookies remain on your computer until manually deleted or when they reach an expiry date. They hold information that is useful if you revisit the website, such as login details and customising your personal preferences.

You can disable cookies already stored on your computer, but this may stop our website and others from functioning properly. It may also cause saved login details, for example, to be deleted, so ensure you have a note of them before deleting all cookies.

Essential Cookies
The following is strictly necessary in the operation of our website. If you choose to allow them, cookies placed on your computer by our website will, where applicable:

- Allow you to login and post to our forum or messaging system, or place an order
- Remember what is in your shopping basket and where you are in the order process
- Recall your login details when you next visit (where applicable)

Non-essential Cookies
The following are not strictly necessary but are required to provide you with the best user experience and tell us, anonymously, which pages people find most interesting.

- Functional Cookies. Typically used for Live Chat support (if available) and for tracking the pages you visit. Page tracking data is collated by Google on behalf of millions of website owners, providing anonymous data on which pages you visited, how you got there, the page you exited the website from and so on. It allows us to see which pages are more or less popular and helps us to make our website even better.

- Targeting Cookies. These allow you, for example, to share pages with social networks such as Facebook (where applicable).

Data Sharing Policy
This website will not share any personal information with third parties.

Identifying Cookies on your Computer
You can often identify the individual Cookies stored on your computer by visiting the Privacy Tools section of your Web browser - below are three examples of popular web browsers.

You can opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites. Search on 'Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on' for the web browser plug-in.

Where we have embedded a video clip delivered from our YouTube channel, a cookie is set but this does not store personally-identifiable information as the clips are embedded using YouTube's privacy-enhanced mode. This mode restricts cookies set by YouTube. For more details search on 'YouTube's privacy-enhanced mode'.
