Like most website operators, Computerized AutoPro 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. Computerized AutoPro’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Computerized AutoPro’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Computerized AutoPro may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Computerized AutoPro also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Computerized AutoPro 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 Information
Certain visitors to Computerized AutoPro’s websites choose to interact with Computerized AutoPro in ways that require Computerized AutoPro to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Computerized AutoPro gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a profile at ComputerizedAutoPro.com to provide an email address. Computerized AutoPro collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Computerized AutoPro. Computerized AutoPro 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.
Computerized AutoPro may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Computerized AutoPro may monitor the most popular profiles on the ComputerizedAutoPro.com site. Computerized AutoPro may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Computerized AutoPro does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Computerized AutoPro 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 Computerized AutoPro’s behalf or to provide services available at Computerized AutoPro’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 Computerized AutoPro’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Computerized AutoPro 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, Computerized AutoPro discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Computerized AutoPro believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Computerized AutoPro, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Computerized AutoPro website and have supplied your email address, Computerized AutoPro 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 Computerized AutoPro and our products. We primarily use our various product profiles 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. Computerized AutoPro takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
