How do we collect information from you?

We ask you for information about you, your location and your vehicle when you use our platform, email or call us.

How and why your personal information will be used?

Under data protection law, we can only use your personal data if we have a proper reason, e.g.:
  • where you have given consent;
  • to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations;
  • for the performance of a contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract; or
  • for our legitimate interests or those of a third party

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests. We will carry out an assessment when relying on legitimate interests, to balance our interests against your own.

We will use information collected when you use the website for price enquiry and/or make a booking on our platform:

  • to present you with garages and services relevant to you;
  • to ensure that the service you have asked for is correctly delivered and managed;
  • to maintain your account on YallaFixMyCar;
  • to ask you to review the service you received. You are under no obligation to respond to this invitation;
  • where we share your vehicle registration number and postcode with a participating garage, to allow them to offer you products or other promotions, if they have a previous relationship with you. We require your consent for this purpose.


We may use your personal data to send you updates (by email, text message, telephone or post):-
  • about our products and services that we think may be of interest to you including exclusive offers, promotions or new services; and
  • YallaFixMyCar is not directly involved (whether as agent or principal) in any transactions between a User and a Garage.
  • to provide you with reminders when your car’s next service or test is due

We have a legitimate interest in using your personal data for marketing purposes. This means we do not usually need your consent to send you marketing information. However, where consent is needed, we will ask for this separately and clearly.

You have the right to opt out of receiving marketing communications at any time by:

  • contacting us at
  • using the ‘unsubscribe’ link in emails or ‘STOP’ number in texts

Personal data may be held at our offices and those of our service providers such as our data storage service providers and email marketing provider.

Our service providers may be based outside the UAE.

Who Do We Share Your Data With?

When you make a booking or make an enquiry including but not restricted to the entry of a registration number, we share this data and where required to make a booking any personal information you have provided with a garage. The garage receiving either the registration number or personal data is responsible for handling your information in accordance with the law. We remind all garages subscribing to our platform of their responsibilities to you. By submitting your registration number and any personal data to us, you consent to such transfers taking place.
