We are an ad agency serving the automotive industry by providing marketing services for our business clients, primarily regional automotive dealer associations (Associations) (collectively, our Services) to help Associations and their member dealers (Dealers) sell and service more cars.
OUR APPROACH TO PRIVACY PROTECTION
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE COLLECT IT
The personally identifiable information we collect may include your name, address, zip code, phone number, email address, and other identifying information, and may also include information about vehicles you own or lease (Personally Identifiable Information or PII). We collect PII in a number of different ways and from a number of different sources. We collect PII you provide us through our Sites or when using certain aspects of our Services. We may also collect PII you provide to our clients, automotive dealers, auto manufacturers, or our authorized vendors, as well as information we obtain from third party databases (collectively, our Partners).
We may also collect usage information about how our Sites and Services are accessed and used. This may include information such as your computer’s IP address, browser type, type of device used, pages on our Sites that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We use your PII to provide information you request from our clients about their vehicles or services, to respond to your inquiries, and to customize information and advertising that we believe may be of interest to you. We may
also use your PII to provide you with marketing materials, as well as other information we believe may be relevant to you. We also use remarketing services to advertise to you on third party websites, such as Google, Bing, Twitter and Facebook and their partners. To control or opt out of any of their ad services, or to review their privacy policies, please visit their sites.
Your PII may be shared with our affiliates and Partners, and may also be disclosed to third parties who work with us, our affiliates, or Partners. Our clients, dealers and auto manufacturers, for example, may use that information to contact you. We may also work with third parties that provide certain functions on our behalf, such as analyzing data or authenticating contact information.
We require our third party service providers to contractually commit to protecting your PII in accordance with both industry standards and applicable law. While we have implemented policies and procedures to protect PII, we cannot control, and are not responsible for, the manner in which our Partners or other third parties use that PII. Accordingly, you should review their privacy policies, as well.
We may also use your PII by combining it with non-personal information and aggregating it with information collected from others. We use this aggregated data in a number of ways, such as to improve the quality and value of our Services and to analyze and understand how our Services are used. In addition, we may provide aggregated data to our Partners so that they may understand how people use our Services or their own.
If you wish to stop receiving email communications from us, you may “unsubscribe” using the link at the bottom of the email you receive. If you wish to be placed on our postal mailing Do Not Contact list, email us at Contact Us and provide the name and address as listed on the mailing. Use the STOP function to stop text communications. To control ads appearing on your browser or mobile device you can adjust your settings or use third party ad blocking tools.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR DATA
We use safeguards that satisfy generally accepted industry standards to preserve the integrity and security of your PII. However, we cannot guarantee the security of information you provide us with certainty or warrant it will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by unauthorized persons. We will make all legally required
disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your PII, in the manner and within the time periods required by applicable law.
COMPLIANCE WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials, as well as private parties, to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties that we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process, including, but not limited to, subpoenas, to protect our property and rights or that of a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical or subject to legal action.
OUR POLICY TOWARDS CHILDREN
Our Sites and Services are not targeted to or intended for use by children. We are concerned about the privacy and safety of children when they use the internet. Accordingly, we will not knowingly request PII online from anyone under the age of 13 without prior, verifiable parental consent. Unfortunately, we cannot always determine the age of a visitor to our Sites or user of our Services.
In connection with a corporate merger, acquisition, divestiture, asset sale, joint venture, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or any other similar transaction or proceeding, we may sell, divest, transfer, assign, share or otherwise engage in a transaction that involves some or all of our assets, including your PII.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your privacy when using our Sites or Services, please contact us at Contact Us. In certain circumstances, you may have the right to access, update or to delete the information we have on you; if you are unable to do within your account settings, please contact us. We will make every effort to respond promptly and address your concerns.
