Your Privacy Online
Your privacy on the Internet is important to us, and because we gather certain types of information about our users, we want you to understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather, how we use it, and how to correct or change it. If you have any question please contact us.
What Information Do We Gather?
MotorDex gathers two types of information about users:
1) Personal data, provided through voluntary registration.
2) Aggregated data, which tracks users as a whole.
Personal data may be requested when you sign up for MotorDex's member services or
register for contests, sweepstakes or other promotional programs offered on our service.
We ask for this in order to provide you with the best Web experience possible. This
information might include member name, password, age, gender, zip code and/or country
information. Except as described below, it is not disclosed to parties other than Auto
Protection and its parent companies in any way that personally identifies you without your
Aggregated data, which tracks MotorDex user activity as a whole rather than on an
individual basis, is gathered through several methods. This tracking data follows Auto
Protection's traffic in general, and is not used to identify you personally.
Aggregated tracking information helps us to determine which areas of our site users like
and don't like based on traffic to those areas. MotorDex does not track what you
read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a
better service for you. We may disclose such aggregated information to third parties such
as our advertisers and partners.
How MotorDex Uses Information!
MotorDex uses any personal information that's voluntarily given by you in order to
enhance your experience, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the
site or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users. Auto
Protection also uses information that you voluntarily provide in order to send electronic
newsletters, warranty quotes via email or by telephone, or mailers.
MotorDex will disclose information that personally identifies you to
parties other than MotorDex in the following situations:
1) When the purpose and manner of disclosure is clearly defined in advance.
2) When the user requests information. For example, requesting auto warranty and insurance quotes.
3) When we believe in good faith that disclosure is legally required or to protect our rights.
Contests and Promotional Events
MotorDex may occasionally offers contests and promotional events in which we request
certain personal information on a voluntary basis. These contests and promotional events
are conducted in full accordance with United States federal and state laws. The full rules
and all information about such contests are clearly posted during the event, including
how information gathered will be used.
