DriveArchive Privacy Policy

Quick Registration Search

DriveArchive is meant to be just a bit of fun. The vehicle records it contains have all been entered by contributors to the site, and the validity of the data has certainly not been verified.

DriveArchive cannot be held responsible for the accuracy of the data contained herein.

DriveArchive does not edit or censor the content of individual entries in the archive. It would be nice to think that the data is accurate, but there is no guarantee it is.

The DriveArchive website uses very few cookies, for trivial reasons to help make your experience better. I do have Google Analytics fitted to the pages in common with a huge number of sites these days.

DriveArchive will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.

DriveArchive is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of any third party.

If you have any questions about this privacy policy or DriveArchive's treatment of your personal information, please Contact me.
