If payment is made by debit or credit card it will be necessary for CPS to disclose the customer’s relevant personal details to the relevant card issuer who will process the customer’s data in order to process the payment. A customer’s data will not be disclosed to third parties other than the financial institution for the chosen payment method.

4.6

No vehicle will be released until full payment has been received. This will not limit CPS rights to recover payments due after release.
