What Information AutoAp Collects and Why

  • Account Registration and Profile Information: For the best user experience, you may be asked to provide certain personally identifiable information including but not limited to your name, email address, and zip code, as well as your vehicle information (i.e., VIN, pictures, year, make, model, and style), when you create an account and register to use the Solutions and Company Services. Account information is password-protected, so please keep your password safe.
  • Log File Information: When you access the Solution or Company Services, we may retain log entries relating to these requests which may include IP address, browser type, browser language, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your account. Web logs and other records are stored indefinitely but will only be used to create a better service for users.
  • Cookies and Anonymous Identifiers: We use various technologies to collect and store information when you use the Solution or Company Services, and this may include sending cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device. Cookies uniquely identify your browser and/or device ID so that AutoAp may gather and store information regarding user preferences and improve the user experience. We also use cookies and anonymous identifiers when you interact with services that we offer to our partners. No personally identifiable information is stored in cookies.

2. Information Sharing and Disclosure

  • Service Providers: AutoAp may disclose information to contractors, service providers, and third parties we use to support our business.
  • Law: AutoAp may release information, registration information, or location information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws or to respond to a court order, subpoena or search warrant.
  • Terms of Use: AutoAp reserves the right to enforce or apply our TOU and other agreements.
  • Protection: AutoAp reserves the right to disclose information, registration information or other information in order to take precautions against liability, protect users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, to collect fees due by users, or to protect the security and integrity of the Solutions or Company Services.
  • Business Transfers: AutoAp may disclose your personally identifiable information to a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of AutoAp's assets, whether as a going concern or as a part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by AutoAp about our users is among the assets transferred.
  • Non-Private or Non-Personal Information: AutoAp may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated, or otherwise obfuscated non-personal information, without your permission.

3. Information Security and Third Party Privacy Practices

We take appropriate and industry-standard security measures to protect against unauthorized access to your data. These include internal reviews of our systems, industry-standard SSL encryption, and appropriate physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to physical systems where we store data.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you a password for access to certain parts of the Solutions, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we make good faith efforts to store the data in a third-party's secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee complete security of your personal information. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Solutions or via other means. We are not responsible for, nor have any control over, the privacy policies of any third parties, and encourage all users to read the privacy policies of each and every website or third party sites visited.

4. International Users

By using the Solutions and/or Company Services and providing us with data, you acknowledge and agree that due to the international dimension of the Solutions and Company Services, we may use the data collected in the course of our relationship for the purposes identified in this policy or in our other communications with you, including the transmission of information outside your resident jurisdiction. In addition, please understand that such data may be stored on servers located inside and outside the United States. By providing us with your data, you consent to the transfer of such data.
