NEW COUNTRY MOTOR CAR GROUP

DEALER PRIVACY POLICY

EFFECTIVE DATE


This Privacy Policy is effective and was last updated on 06/14/19

New Country Motor Car Group, Inc., together with the applicable dealer within its network of affiliated dealerships (together, "New Country," "we" or "Dealer") has created this Privacy Policy to describe our commitment to your privacy.  This policy describes how we collect, protect, use and share information about you in connection with this website (the "Site").  This Privacy Policy applies only to information obtained through the Site and does not apply to any other Dealer website or service. Additional privacy laws and rules may apply to our collection of financial information from you when you provide us with information other than through this Site.  If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, you should not access or otherwise use this Site.  We also direct you to our Terms of Service, which governs your use of the Site.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

1. Personally Identifying Information.


We require the submission of certain personally identifiable information about you when you use the services available on our website. Our website uses a variety of contact forms and tracking phone numbers for visitors to request information, products, and services. We collect a visitor's contact information (like his or her email address or phone number) and in some cases, demographic information (like his or her zip code). In limited circumstances, such as when a visitor fills out an online credit application, we collect unique identifiers (like a social security number), and/or financial information (like age, income level, bank account or credit card numbers). We use this information to contact our prospective customers about their requests, and to send them additional information about our products and services.

Once you have voluntarily provided personally identifiable information to us, we may associate that information with browser software known as "cookies" to help identify you.  Cookies are pieces of information that may be placed on your computer or other device by a website for the purpose of facilitating and enhancing your communication and interaction with a particular website.  Personally identifiable information received from you (such as IP address, phone number, email address, zip code, etc.) may be contained in or linked to a cookie.

We may use cookies with personally identifiable information so that our website can uniquely recognize you, enhance your online visit with us, and provide you with the information you're most likely to need.  For instance, cookies allow our website to remind you of your past vehicle search interests and website activity and to suggest similar products and services. In some cases, cookies may improve your shopping experience and we use information gained through cookies to track your website activity and to deliver you content specific information

Any financial information we collect is used to check the qualifications of our prospective customers and bill for products and services ordered. If you apply for financing or wish to purchase or lease a car from us, we may collect personal information such as your name, address, driver's license number and state, social security number and other credit information. This information is stored in a secure database and is used solely to provide the service you requested. The collection, use and storage of your financial information for credit checks, for arranging credit and loans or for purchasing products and services may be subject to additional privacy policies and rules, and you may be notified and asked to consent to such policies at the time of any such collection, use or storage of your financial information as required by law.

Our online surveys may ask visitors for contact information (like an email address or phone number) which they may voluntarily provide. We also may run contests on our website in which we ask visitors for similar contact information in order to participate. We use contact information from our surveys and contests to send information about products and services to these participating visitors.

We will only collect your information when you voluntarily provide it to us.  You can always choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in certain features of the Site.

2. Non-Personally Identifying Information.

When you visit the Site, we may also collect from you certain information that does not identify you personally, such as your IP address, the pages you visited, your browser type, information regarding Site usage, and other data, which do not identify any individual personally.  When your computer or other device contacts our web servers (for example, when you visit the Site, view an HTML e-mail or download material from the Site), this web-based or browser information may be collected automatically.  We also may determine the applicable technology available to provide you with the most appropriate version of a web page, e-mail or similar service.

The Site may also use cookies to track anonymous data about your use of the Site.  We may use cookies to customize your visit to the Site and for other purposes to make your visit more convenient or to enable us to enhance our service.  For example, we may use cookies to track usage patterns on the Site or to analyze web activity.  In addition to cookies, we and our website services providers may also use "image tags" or other tracking technologies to collect certain usage information from all customers and visitors to our website.  An "image tag," also known as a clear GIF, pixel tag, or web beacon, works together with cookies and is a small image file that may be located in various areas of our website. We may use these technical methods to analyze traffic patterns on the Site, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of the Site and which pages they visit before or after accessing our Site.


Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you have the option to change your browser setting to decline them.  You may stop or restrict the placement of cookies on your computer or other device or remove them from your browser by adjusting your web browser preferences.  If you do so, you may still use the Site, but you may not have access to certain of the Site's features or be able to retrieve information about your previous visits to the Site. 


 



HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We use information you share with us to: (i) inform you about our products and services and changes affecting our products and services, which may include offers from us, our affiliated companies or manufacturers and marketing partners, (ii) deliver the products or services you request, (iii) improve and enhance the Site and (iv) better understand your preferences, and (v) aggregate your information with other analytics we obtain about you to deliver products and services of interest.
 
When you provide us your telephone and/or mobile telephone number, you will be required to expressly authorize us to contact you by that telephone number.  If the number you provide is for a mobile telephone, you expressly authorize us to send you text messages.  Please be advised that your wireless carrier may charge you for the receipt of such messages, and other charges may apply.  If you do not wish to receive such messages, you should not provide us with your mobile telephone number.  In addition, you may opt-out of receiving such messages by following the opt-out procedures below.  In addition, we may combine information about your visits or interactions with our Site, our other websites, and our online advertising with information you have directly provided us or will provide us during the provision of our services, such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, mobile telephone number and date of birth. 

From time to time, we may use and share information we collect about you with third parties to show general demographic and preference information among users of the Site.  In these circumstances, the shared information will neither contain nor be linked to any specific personally identifiable information.  If you choose, you can opt out of this information sharing and aggregation using the procedures described in "Opting Out with Third Parties."    

Only in the following circumstances will we disclose your information to any third party who is not affiliated with, a business partner of or a sponsor of Dealer without your express consent:  (i) in connection with the sale or merger of Dealer, (ii) as required by courts or administrative agencies including in response to a court order or subpoena, and (iii) to the extent required to permit us to investigate and pursue cases of suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, the Site rules or policies, or the rights of third parties or any other suspected conduct we deem improper.

OPTING OUT OF INFORMATION SHARING
If you wish for us to remove your information from our active records, please email us at ______@newcountry.com with the word "Unsubscribe" in the subject field and the name of the dealership.  Please be aware that we will process your request within a reasonable time after receipt.  You should also be aware that we are not responsible for removing your information from the lists of any third party who has previously been provided with your information in accordance with this policy, such as a business partner.  In addition, your ability to opt-out from receiving marketing and promotional material does not change our right to contact you regarding your use of the Site or changes to our Privacy Policy, Terms of Use statement or other policy or terms that affect you and your use of the Site.

OPTING OUT WITH THIRD PARTIES


You can elect to opt out of marketing efforts from many third party advertisers by going directly to their websites, by clicking on the Digital Advertising Alliance's blue triangular icon located at or near the bottom of the applicable website (including the bottom of this Site page) and/or by visiting www.aboutads.info/choices/.  These industry alliances make opting out of receiving Interest Based Advertising easier by providing a single location to opt out of ad- targeting from member companies.  Please note that you must repeat the opt-out process to reset your preferences if you clear your browser's cookies or use a different browser.  When you opt out of Internet Based Advertising, you will also be opted out of the information sharing and aggregation described above.  
Opting out does not mean that we or any third party advertisers will no longer collect information; however, so long as the opt out cookie is on your browser, it does mean that the third party advertisers from whom you have opted out will not display advertisements to you which are tailored to your apparent interests using information collected through cookies and other tracking tools facilitated by our website or the applicable third party advertiser.  
In addition, you can modify the security settings on your computer or other device and reset your browser to approve or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis, block cookies from certain sites, or even refuse all cookies.  Similarly, you can disable pixel tags by changing your browser settings to omit images and disable JavaScript, or use commercial software packages that can omit pixel tags and most advertisements.  However, if you "turn off," purge or disable cookies or pixel tags, you may not be able to use all of the features, functions or services available on the Site.

SECURITY
The security of your information is very important to us. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect, including limiting access to the personal information contained on our servers. Only those employees who need access to your information to perform their duties are authorized to have access to your personal information.  However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and us, or information stored on the Site or our servers, will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers, and your use of the Site is at your own risk.  We also recommend that you keep your information safe by, for example, memorizing your password or securing it in a safe place (separate from your account information), and logging out of your user account and closing your web browser once you leave the Site.

CALIFORNIA DO NOT TRACK DISCLOSURE

Do Not Track ("DNT") is a privacy setting in your web browsers that enables you to opt out of tracking by websites and online services.  When you activate DNT, the browser will send a message requesting that the website or online service not track you.  Currently, our Site does not recognize DNT signals.  Instead, information collection and sharing practices, as well as the choices we provide you, will continue to operate as described in this Privacy Policy, regardless of whether a DNT signal is received.  For more information about DNT, see http://donottrack.us/.

NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS / YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

California residents are entitled to request and obtain certain information from us regarding our disclosure, if any, of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in 2019 will receive information about 2018 information sharing activities).  As set forth here, we comply with this law by offering our visitors the ability to tell us not to share their personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes.  To make such a request, please follow the instructions in the section titled "Opting Out of Information Sharing."  

LINKS TO AND FROM OTHER WEBSITES


The Site may contain links to other websites not maintained by us, and other websites may reference or link to the Site.  These other websites may set their own cookies, collect data, solicit your information, and/or have their own privacy policies.  We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Site and to read the privacy policies and terms and conditions of each and every website you visit.  We are not responsible for the practices or the content of other such websites, expressly disclaim any statements or assertions made on such websites, including without limitation, any failure on the part of any linked websites to comply with any privacy policy posted on the website, and disclaim all liability associated with your use of, and the content on, other such sites.

CHILDREN


The Site is not intended for children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children who are under the age of 13.  If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information to us through the Site.

The Site is maintained in the United States of America.  If you are located in the European Union, Canada or elsewhere outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States.  By using the Site, participating in any of our services, and/or providing us with your information, you consent to this transfer.
