Privacy Policy

 

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, AutoMall Online collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. AutoMall Online’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how AutoMall Online’s visitors use its website. From time to time, AutoMall Online may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

AutoMall Online also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users submitting content to AutoMall Online. AutoMall Online only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that user IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the staff of AutoMall Online.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to AutoMall Online websites choose to interact with AutoMall Online in ways that require AutoMall Online to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that AutoMall Online gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to provide a username and email address. In any case, AutoMall Online collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with AutoMall Online. AutoMall Online does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

AutoMall Online may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, AutoMall Online may monitor the most popular accounts on AutoMall Online.com. AutoMall Online may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, AutoMall Online does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

AutoMall Online discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on AutoMall Online’s behalf or to provide services available at AutoMall Online s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using AutoMall Online s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. AutoMall Online will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, AutoMall Online discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when AutoMall Online believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of AutoMall Online third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of AutoMall Online and have supplied your email address, AutoMall Online may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with AutoMall Online and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. AutoMall Online takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
