Why We Collect Personal Information
Easy Car Buy collects and uses your personal information to give you superior customer service and to provide you with convenient access to our products and services, some of which are only available to Easy Car Buy customers.
In addition, we use your personal information to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, special offers, and other information we think you’d like to hear about. From time to time, we may also use your personal information to contact you to participate in a market research survey, so that we can gauge customer satisfaction and develop better products and services.
How We Collect Personal Information
We collect information about you in several ways. For example, we might ask for your contact information when you correspond with us, register at a tradeshow, or register online for a contest. We collect and store the information you provide in a secure database.
To save you time and make our web services even easier to use, some areas of the Easy Car Buy website allow you to create a user ID, using your personal information. When you first wish to access areas of the website that are restricted to Easy Car Buy customers only, you will be asked to fill out a brief profile, including your name, phone number, and email address among other pieces of information, and then choose a username and password for security. The system saves your information and allows you future access to all areas of the Easy Car Buy website, once you input your username and password.
When We Disclose Personal Information
Easy Car Buy will never sell your personal information to any other company or list reseller. Easy Car Buy may email you special offers and announcements we believe you might be interested in. However, if you do not want to receive promotional information from Easy Car Buy, or wish to update your personal information, please email email@example.com to update your personal contact preferences.
At times, we may be required by law or legal process to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we believe that disclosure is necessary for the public interest.
How We Protect Your Personal Information
Easy Car Buy safeguards the security of your data with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
Easy Car Buy’s password protected sections of the website use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where business information is located. This protects the confidentiality of your business information while it is transmitted over the Internet.
Access To Your Personal Information
You always have access to the information we have about you. If you would like to review or update any personal information that Easy Car Buy may have about you, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Collecting Other Personal Information
When you browse Easy Car Buy’s website, you are able to do so anonymously. Generally, we don’t collect personal information when you browse the public areas of our website.
However, in certain instances, the Easy Car Buy website will use “cookie” technology. If you wish to obtain access to restricted areas of our website, when you enter your username and password, a cookie identifies you and allows you to travel unrestricted through the website. Rejection of cookie will result in limited access to the website.
In some of our emails to you, we use a “click-through URL.” When you click one of these URLs, you pass through our web server before arriving at the website that is your destination. We track click-throughs to help us determine your interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications.
Our Company Wide Commitment To Privacy
To make sure your personal information remains confidential, we communicate these privacy guidelines to every Easy Car Buy employee.
Easy Car Buy does not knowingly solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 21, or send them requests for personal information.
Easy Car Buy’s website may, at times, contain links to other sites. Easy Car Buy does not share your personal information with those websites, and is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.
If we are going to use your personal information differently from that stated at the time of collection, we will try to contact you via email using the most recent information we have. If you have not given us permission to communicate with you, you will not be contacted, nor will we use your personal information in a new manner.
Easy Car Buy respects the rights users give us when opting to receive email communications and enforces internal policies to preserve those rights. It is our objective to retain the long-term ability to continue to communicate with our users. If you do not want Easy Car Buy or a Easy Car Buy representative to contact you, you may “opt out” of this preference at any time, whether you’re online or by contacting Easy Car Buy directly.
