Information you provide to us. Some examples of when you provide us information include when you: submit information on our Sites; participate in an event, sweepstakes, contest, other or promotion; purchase products, or services on our Site, and communicate with us. Some examples of the types of information you provide us include: contact and identification information; demographic information; financial information; information about your vehicles and products; and audio, electronic, or visual information.

Information collected automatically. Some examples of information we collect automatically include:

  • Device and usage information. We may collect technical data about the browsers and devices you use to access our Sites, emails, and advertisements, such as, device type, browser type and language, hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, IP address, device event information (e.g. hardware settings, date and time of your request, referral URL, crashes, and system activity). We may also collect information about how you interact with our Sites, emails, and advertisements, such as features used, content viewed, and the dates and times of your interactions. This information is collected automatically as you access the Sites, emails, and advertisements.
  • Cookies and similar technologies. Cookies and similar technologies are pieces of information stored directly on the device you are using.

Cookies allow us to collect information such as browser type, time spent on the Sites, pages visited, and language preferences. We and our service providers use the information for security purposes, to facilitate navigation, to display information more effectively, and to personalize your online experience and our marketing and advertising efforts. In addition, we use cookies to gather statistical information about usage of the Sites in order to improve their design and functionality, understand how they are used, and assist us with resolving questions about them.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer. If you would prefer not to accept cookies, most browsers will allow you to: (i) change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether or not to accept it; (ii) disable existing cookies; or (iii) set your browser to automatically reject any cookies. If you set your browser to reject cookies, parts of the Sites may not work for you.

Pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs, or other similar technologies. These may be used in connection with some of our Sites, emails, or advertisements, to, for example, track the actions of Site users, compile statistics about Site usage and response rates, determine whether you have opened and acted upon our emails, and assess the effectiveness of our marketing.

Analytics and advertising. We use third-party analytics services that use cookies and similar technologies to better understand how users engage with our Sites, including services provided by Google and Adobe. Please visit https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/ and https://www.adobe.com/privacy/marketing-cloud.html for more information about how Google and Adobe collect and use data when you use their partners’ websites or mobile applications.
Do Not Track requests. Some browsers may transmit “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signals to the websites you visit. Because there is not a common agreement about how to interpret DNT signals, we do not take action in response to them.
