Our Commitment To Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
The Information We Collect
In order to facilitate the sale of vehicles and related services online, it is imperative that personal information is collected. Personal information on Auto Explosion falls into two distinct categories:
- personal information that visitors volunteer
- tracking information that does not identify you as an individual but that assists us in tracking the web site's activity and referrals
When filling out an ad or form on Auto Explosion, visitors must volunteer personal information. "Personal information" may include name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and certain vehicle information.
As a customer, you must understand that some of your information like city, state, in some cases your phone number, will be available to everyone when posting an ad on the Internet. You also need to remember that this personal information will continue to be accessible on our site until you cancel your ad. You may discontinue your ad by logging into your account and removing it.
If you no longer wish for Auto Explosion to keep any of your personal information, please submit a request to discontinue your free membership.
Under no circumstances Auto Explosion collects or store your credit/debit card information on its site.
The Way We Use Information
Personal information collected by Auto Explosion may be used for three main purposes:
- as contact information for anyone interested in purchasing a vehicle
- to help us provide fulfillment services in connection with goods and services ordered by you
- to offer more information about our service
Thus, as a customer of Auto Explosion, you will be contacted by potential buyers. We may contact you about your account or send you information directly related to the purpose for which you have registered. As a visitor to Auto Explosion, the contact information you volunteer may be used by us to offer you more information about our services.
We do not sell, rent or share your personal information with any third parties. Under certain circumstances, Auto Explosion may disclose personal information when required by law.
In order for Auto Explosion to better target our services to you, we use your browser "cookie". Cookies do not contain any personal data, they do not damage your computer software or hardware, and they do not allow us or anyone else to access your personal information. They simply tell us what site referred some user to us, or what link some user clicked without actually identifying that user. Cookies may contain such information as an IP address, DNS host name, number of visits. We may aggregate this information in order to analyze website traffic figures and technical issues. We may also share aggregate (not individual) site referral statistics with advertisers and other third parties, but again, this information will not include any personally identifiable information. If you do not wish to receive cookies on your hard drive, most web browsers have a help option that explains how to reject certain cookies or to disable them entirely. Note that some of Auto Explosion services will be unavailable if your browser cookies are disabled.
Amending Personal Information
As a customer, you may also make corrections or updates to the personal information that you provide us. Simply log into your account and click on "My Profile" link.
Our Commitment To Data Security
The security of the information you provide to Auto Explosion is important to us. Information that is collected by Auto Explosion and Auto Explosion website is stored on in-house controlled databases and servers. This includes any information provided by visitors, even those who do not order our service. We have implemented security policies, rules, and technical measures to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of sensitive information under our control. In particular, all credit card transactions are protected by the latest Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology. SSL is the Internet standard for secured transactions.
Our Commitment To Children's Privacy
We do not knowingly collect personal data from children. In the event that somebody under the age of 13 indicates that they have provided personally identifiable information to us, we will immediately remove that information from the website. Such information will not be sold, rented or shared with any third party for any purpose whatsoever.
Possible Future Uses of Information
