Website VisitorsLike most website operators, Auto Excellence 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. Auto Excellence purpose in collecting non–personally identifying information is to better understand how Auto Excellence visitors use its website. From time to time, Auto Excellence may release non–personally–identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Auto Excellence also collects potentially personally–identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Auto Excellence does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally–identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying InformationCertain visitors to Auto Excellence website choose to interact with Auto Excellence in ways that require Auto Excellence to gather personally–identifying information. The amount and type of information that Auto Excellence gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a newsletter to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Auto Excellence by requesting vehicle service bookings, for example are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Auto Excellence collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor interaction with Auto Excellence. Auto Excellence does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below. And 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 StatisticsAuto Excellence may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Auto Excellence may monitor the most popular blogs on the site or use a third–party online analitics service to help identify trends. Auto Excellence may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Auto Excellence does not disclose personally–identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying InformationAuto Excellence discloses potentially personally–identifying and personally–identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Auto Excellence’s behalf or to provide services available at Auto Excellence’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Auto Excellence’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Auto Excellence will not rent or sell potentially personally–identifying and personally–identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Auto Excellence discloses potentially personally–identifying and personally–identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Auto Excellence believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Auto Excellence, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Auto Excellence website and have supplied your email address, Auto Excellence 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 at Auto Excellence and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs 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. Auto Excellence takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally–identifying and personally–identifying information.
