Information supplied by you - Fiesta register

Our register of Ford Fiestas records the information that you submit in a database, this may include names or nicknames, photographs, vehicle license information, and information relating to that vehicle such as make, model, specification and year as well as the IP address of the user submitting the form.

All text based vehicle license details are partially obfuscated (starred out) in both the vehicle registration number lists, and the filenames of any images, however they are publically visible in the photos that you submit unless you edit or manually hide them in the photo supplied. We warn users of this on the register form page. Please also note where you car is pictured before submitting any photographs as it may lead to its location being identifiable.

How we use that information

The information entered is used to populate our fiesta register, this is a public list of all submitted vehicles which is used across the website in various ways including:

  1. A search form which allows users to enter a registration number, which then returns all information held about that vehicle which may include images with visible license plates.
  2. Model specific pages which include a list of related vehicle license numbers and other information which may include images with visible license plates.
  3. A homepage carousel which shows the latest vehicle submissions which may include an image with a visible license plate.
  4. A paint code guide which contains links to all vehicles submitted that match that colour name, which may include an image with a visible license plate

From time to time we may use third party services such as public online vehicle check services to cross reference vehicle information, this is purely to verify that a vehicle is listed correctly and to help fill in missing information such as year or colour
