Privacy Policy

Collection of Information 

The purchase of a motor vehicle requires considerable accumulation of nonpublic personal information. For example, if we sell you a vehicle - extending you credit at your request - we will receive information from you in order to determine your creditworthiness. We may also obtain information from a credit-reporting agency. We may also obtain information from third parties such as employers, references and insurance companies. 

Some of the information we obtain from you may be required by state or federal agencies, such as the Department of Motor Vehicles or the Internal Revenue Service. This information may be required even if you were to pay cash for your vehicle. Examples of such information include a driver's license number or a social security number. 

In connection with CarSense ESP, we may receive and store certain information related to your ESP Profile and your shopping and service history.  We may use such CarSense ESP profile information for purposes of sending you reminders, alerts and tips, unless you request not to be contacted.    

Some information collected is non-identifying.  For example, although our site servers collect information about a user’s internet protocol address, our server is not able to automatically associate that information with a particular user.  We may collect non-identifying information associated with that address, such as the time and date of a visit, the originating domain name, the browser type, and the particular pages or products viewed on the site.
