Excellent Website for engine parts!

I rang Mariner today looking for parts numbers etc for my engine.

They put me onto this website.. so far I can't fault it so thought I'd post it on here, maybe its already commonly used by folks on here?

I don't like it, why should we have to register and agree to terms and conditions that state they will share data, just in order to browse the catalogue?
This is of particular concern:-

"You also consent to our transferring your information to countries such as Korea and the USA which do not provide the same level of data protection as the UK if necessary for the above purposes."

Maybe I'm paranoid but seeing as there is no opt out feature I wonít be using this site.

You can always use false details and register an email address like "jimn.junk@gmail.com" to use for sites you don't like...

I've used this company before, they are based in dorset i think. Very good customer service and quick at posting the items out too. I'm sure i was recommended to the website by someone else on here but cant think who it was, old age and all that!
