SOCIAL MEDIA INTERACTION
You also can engage with our content on or through third-party social networking sites, such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (or third-party social media plug-ins and applications). When you engage with our content on or through third-party social networking sites, plug-ins and applications, you may allow us to have access to certain information from your social media profile (e.g., name, e-mail address, photo, gender, birthday, location, your list of friends, people you follow and/or who follow you, the posts or the ‘likes’ you make) to deliver the content or as part of the operation of the application. We may also obtain non-personally identifiable information (e.g., content viewed and information about advertisements within the content you have been shown or may have clicked on) from your interaction with our content.
WHAT TYPES OF INFORMATION DOES AMERICAN CAR COLLECTOR COLLECT?
In order to give you the best experience on our websites, American Car Collector may collect information about you, but only if you voluntarily provide it to us. Typically, we may ask you to submit personal and/or demographic information if you decide to:
- Email a question to us
The types of personal information collected in conjunction with the activities listed above will vary depending on the activity. The requested information may include: (i) your name, (ii) mailing address, (iii) telephone number, (iv) email address.
HOW DOES AMERICAN CAR COLLECTOR USE THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS?
Generally, information that we collect for a particular purpose is used for that purpose only. For example, if you email us a question using our online sales inquiry form, your personal information will only be used to provide a response to your inquiry. In some instances, however, you may also be given the option to have your information used for an activity or service different from the activity or service that you are requesting (e.g., have your email address added to our newsletter mailing list). If you choose to receive these additional services, we will use your information to provide them to you. If you choose to opt-in to receive e-mails from one of our partner companies, we encourage you to visit such partner’s website and read their policy before agreeing to provide your information to them.
From time to time, we are approached by third party companies and organizations that provide products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. To extend these products or services to you, we may use your personal information to send out notices on their behalf. We strive to limit the notices and communications to those that we think you would appreciate receiving.
In addition, personal and/or demographic information collected through one of the activities set forth above may be used for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the online services we provide you and better meet your needs.
No matter what method we use to collect information and no matter how we use that information, we will only collect the information deemed reasonably necessary to fulfill your online requests and our legitimate business objectives.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I REFUSE TO PROVIDE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION TO AMERICAN CAR COLLECTOR?
If you choose not to submit personal information when requested, you may not be able to use services offered on our websites. However, to simply browse and view certain content on our websites, you do not need to give us any personal information.
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet. Although we do not generally collect IP addresses, we may collect and use your IP address when we feel it is necessary to protect our service, websites, customers, or others.
The only other information that may be passively collected by American Car Collector is in the form of logs – files that record website activity, including how many “hits” a particular web page is getting (a.k.a. “navigational data”). These entries are generated anonymously and enable American Car Collector to gather statistics about users’ browsing habits, assess overall website activity, track interest in advertised sales, and maintain website security. We also use the log file entries for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the online services we provide you. Log files are used internally only and may be combined with data collected via cookies to help us aggregate behavior patterns of registered users.
WHO IS COLLECTING MY PERSONAL INFORMATION AND IS IT SHARED WITH ANYONE?
Generally, the information that you disclose on a American Car Collector website is collected by American Car Collector or by a vendor on American Car Collector’s behalf and is used in accordance with the practices set forth above. Vendors (or agents) are entities that provide support for the internal operations of our websites and who only use the information we share with them for the purpose of carrying out the service you’ve requested.
We may disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are required to do so by law, including but not limited to disclosure to law enforcement or other government officials in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose you or us to legal liability.
In addition, in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other similar event, information may be transferred to its successor or assign, if permitted by and done in accordance with applicable law.

WHAT SAFEGUARDS DOES AMERICAN CAR COLLECTOR USE TO PROTECT MY PERSONAL INFORMATION?
American Car Collector maintains appropriate safeguards that ensure the security, integrity, and privacy of the personal information we collect and store about you. These safeguards include, among other things, limiting access to such data to those employees performing a legitimate business function; technical security measures, such as encryption or passwords, to prevent unauthorized access; and the storage of data on secure servers or computers inaccessible by modem.
We also have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control (i.e., maintain data quality). Before we allow web users to access their personal information, for example, we verify their identity by requesting that they submit information such as their username and password. We also take reasonable steps to ensure that third parties to whom we transfer personal information provide sufficient protection of such data.
