Marketing messages

 

If you have said we can, we’ll send you marketing messages to keep you aware of what we’re up to and to help you see and find our products and services. 

 

You can control the marketing communications you receive from us through the Contact Preferences section of your IntroCar account. You also have the following options: 

·       Emails:  You can also click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link in any marketing email you receive, and this will take you to the Contact Preferences section of your account so you can unsubscribe from that method of communication. 

·       Any method of Marketing:  You can contact our team and ask to be unsubscribed from communications.

 

If you tell us you don’t want to receive marketing messages it might take a few days for all our systems to be updated, so we would ask for your patience as you might get messages from us while we process your request. 

 

Please note that opting out of marketing messages will not stop service communications, such as order updates, or where you have asked for a specific ‘back in stock’ notification.
