We will only use your data to improve your understanding and experience of Bentleys. Your privacy is taken very seriously, and we will ensure that all of your personal information is treated in accordance with the applicable data protection laws in the UK. Your personal information will be kept secure and any data that you supply to us will be collected and used to enable us to fulfil your order.

We seek your explicit permission to use cookies on the site and the choice of signing up to our mailing list is made entirely at your discretion. You can also opt out of our marketing messages at any time you like, and we will delete your data if you no longer want us to keep it.
At Bentleys, we take protecting the privacy and security of our customers and site visitors very seriously. If you have any questions about how we protect your privacy, please contact us at

You don’t have to give us any of this personal information but if you don’t, you may not be able to buy from the site, and you are unlikely to receive our optimal overall customer experience.

We may occasionally anonymise and aggregate personal information for purposes including research, data analysis and improving our site. We may also share this information with third parties who are helping us develop new products and services.


We do not, and will not, sell any of your personal data to any third party – including your name, address, telephone number, email address or credit card information. We believe this is absolutely essential in order to earn your trust as our customer. However, as an essential part of being able to provide our services to you, we share your data with the following companies as set out in this statement:
• Companies that do things to get your purchases to you, such as our makers, payment service providers, packers and delivery companies

• Professional service providers, such as our website host Shopify, who help us run our business

• Credit reference agencies, law enforcement and fraud prevention agencies, so we can help tackle fraud 

• We may provide third parties with aggregated but anonymised information and analytics about our customers and, before we do so, we will make sure that it does not identify you.

    We share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information, as described above. For example, we use Shopify to power our online store – you can read more about how Shopify uses your Personal Information here:

    We also use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site – you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here:

    We use Mailchimp to stay in touch with our customers through “The Despatch” newsletter. You can find out more about Mailchimp’s Privacy Policy here:

    We use Stripe for payment, analytics, and other business services. Stripe collects identifying information about the devices that connect to its services. Stripe uses this information to operate and improve the services it provides to us, including for fraud detection. You can learn more about Stripe and read its privacy policy at

    We also work with Convelio to handle certain product orders. You can find out more about how Convelio uses your personal information here:

    We may update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect how we are processing your data, for example changes to our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. If we make significant changes we will make it clear on the Bentleys website, or by another means of contact such as email, so that you are able to review the changes before you continue to use Bentleys.

    If you have said we can, we’ll send you marketing messages by email to keep you aware of new products and events.

    You can stop receiving marketing messages from us at any time.

    You can do this:
    • Through your account settings

    • By clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in any email

    • By contacting us at

    Once you do this, we will update your profile to ensure that you don’t receive further marketing messages.

    Stopping marketing messages will not stop service communications (such as order updates).

    We very occasionally engage in online advertising.

    Like many companies, we target banners and ads to you when you are on other websites and apps. We may do this using a variety of digital marketing networks, and we use a range of advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers, as well as specific services offered by some sites and social networks, such as Facebook’s Custom Audience service.

    The banners and ads you see will be based on information we hold about you, or your previous use of Bentleys (for example, your search history, and the content you read on our site) or on Bentleys banners or ads you have previously clicked on.

    We’ll hold on to your information for as long as you have an account with us, or as long as is needed to be able to provide the services to you, or (in the case of any contact you may have with our customer support) for as long as is necessary to provide support-related reporting and trend analysis only.

    If reasonably necessary or required to meet legal or regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our terms and conditions, we may also keep hold of some of your information as required, even after you have closed your account or it is no longer needed to provide the services to you.

    You have a lot of rights relating to your personal information:
    • The right to be informed about how your personal information is 
being used
    • The right to access the personal information we hold about you

    • The right to request the correction of inaccurate personal information we hold about you

    • The right to request that we delete your data, or stop processing it or collecting it, in some circumstances

    • The right to stop direct marketing messages, and to withdraw consent for other consent-based processing at any time

    • The right to request that we transfer or port elements of your data either to you or another service provider

    • The right to complain to your data protection regulator – in the UK, the Information Commissioner’s Office

    If you want to exercise your rights, please contact us at

    Additionally, if you are a European resident we note that we are processing your information in order to fulfil contracts we might have with you (for example, if you make an order through our website). Additionally, please note that your information will be transferred outside of Europe, including to Canada and the United States.

    Remarketing Cookies
    You may notice that sometimes, after visiting a site, you see increased numbers of adverts from the site you visited. This is because advertisers, including ourselves, occasionally pay for these adverts. The technology to do this is made possible by cookies and as such we may place a so-called “remarketing cookie” during your visit. We use these adverts to offer special offers, etc., to encourage you to come back to our site. Don’t worry, we are unable to proactively reach out to you as the whole process is entirely anonymised.
