Privacy Policy

Automotional is committed to protecting your privacy. Please read the Automotional Online Privacy Statement below.

Collection of Your Personal Information
In order to access some Automotional services, you will be asked to log in. By signing in on one Automotional site or service, you may be automatically signed into other Automotional sites and services.

At some Automotional sites, we ask you to provide personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. We may also collect demographic information, such as your postcode, age, gender, preferences, interests and favourites. If you choose to make a purchase or sign up for a paid subscription service, we will ask for additional information, such as your credit card number and billing address, that is used to create a Automotional billing account.

We may collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with Automotional sites and services. We also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring Web site addresses.

When you receive newsletters or promotional e-mail from Automotional, we may use web beacons (described below), customised links or similar technologies to determine whether the e-mail has been opened and which links you click in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications or other information.

In order to offer you a more consistent and personalised experience in your interactions with Automotional, information collected through one Automotional service may be combined with information obtained through other Automotional services. We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained from other companies. For example, we may use services from other companies that enable us to derive a general geographic area based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your geographic area.

Use of Your Personal Information
Automotional collects and uses your personal information to operate and improve its sites and deliver the services or carry out the transactions you have requested. These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the sites or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and technologies; and displaying content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences.

We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, reminders, information on technical service issues, and security announcements. Some Automotional services, such as the Automotional Trainer and Automotional Informer, may send periodic member letters that are considered part of the service. We may also occasionally send you product surveys or promotional mailings to inform you of other products or services available from Automotional.

Personal information collected on Automotional sites and services may be stored and processed in the United Kingdom or any other country in which Automotional or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using a Automotional site or service, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

Sharing of Your Personal Information
Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your personal information outside of Automotional and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your consent. Some Automotional sites allow you to choose to share your personal information with select Automotional partners so that they can contact you about their products, services or offers.

Some Automotional services may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company. If you register for or use such services, both Automotional and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the co-branded services.

We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.

We may access and/or disclose your personal information if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on Automotional; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Automotional (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Automotional services or members of the public.

Communication Preferences
You can stop the delivery of future promotional e-mail from Automotional sites and services by following the specific instructions in the e-mail you receive.

These communication choices do not apply to mandatory service communications that are considered part of certain Automotional services, which you may receive periodically unless you cancel the service.

Security of Your Personal Information
Automotional is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number or password) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always choose to log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.

We encourage you to talk with your children about communicating with strangers and disclosing personal information online.

Use of Web Beacons
Automotional Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons - sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that may be used to assist in delivering cookies on our sites and allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. We may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

Automotional may also employ Web beacons from third parties in order to help us compile aggregated statistics and determine the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns. We prohibit Web beacons on our sites from being used by third parties to collect or access your personal information.

Finally, we may work with other companies that advertise on Automotional sites to place Web beacons on their sites in order to allow us to develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement on a Automotional site results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser's site.

Use of Third Party Ad Networks
The majority of the online banner advertisements you see on Automotional Web pages are displayed by Automotional. However, we allow other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to display advertisements on Automotional Web pages. Some of these ad networks may place a persistent cookie on your computer in order to recognise your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad networks may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. Automotional does not have access to the cookies that may be placed by the third-party ad servers or ad networks.

Controlling "Spam" or Unsolicited E-mail
Automotional will not sell, lease or rent its e-mail subscriber lists to third parties. While Automotional continues to actively review and implement new technology, such as expanded filtering features, there is no currently available technology that will totally prevent the sending and receiving of unsolicited e-mail. Using anti-spam tools and being cautious about the sharing of your e-mail address while online will help reduce the amount of unsolicited e-mail you receive.

Enforcement of This Privacy Statement
If you have questions regarding this statement, you should first contact us by using the contact details supplied on Automotional.com.

Changes to This Privacy Statement
We will occasionally update this privacy statement to reflect changes in our services and customer feedback. When we post changes to this Statement, we will revise the "last updated" date at the top of this statement. If there are material changes to this statement or in how Automotional will use your personal information, we will notify you by prominently posting a notice of such changes prior to implementing the change. We encourage you to periodically review this statement to be informed of how Automotional is protecting your information.
