Privacy Policy

AutoRVWorld privacy policy

AutoRVWorld respects the privacy of visitors to our website. Please read this Privacy Statement carefully so that you understand what information we collect through our website and what we do with that information. If you have questions about this Privacy Statement, please contact us here.


The Information We Collect


The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information supplied by visitors to the site when they list a car for sale, perform a search, submit a credit application, enter a promotional contest, or initiate a transaction, and (2) tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our website and review our email newsletters and other email messages. Third-party providers featured on or linked to by our website, such as vendors of products and services offered through our site by third parties, may be gathering information, as well, through processes we don't control.


Searches and Listings


To make use of certain features on our site, visitors need to provide limited information about themselves and their interests so that we can tailor the information we provide to their needs. For example, to help you find the car you want close to home, we need to know what kind of car you're looking for and your zip code. We ask you to provide this information when you perform a search. We use this information to help you find the car you're looking for. If you find a listing that interests you and elect to send the seller an email through our website, we'll share with the seller the contact information you supply through our online form. If you call a dealer to inquire about a car listed on our site, we may provide the dealer with the number from which the call originated. When you list a car for sale, we ask for information on the car and on how you can be contacted by potential buyers. We also ask for your credit card number and the expiration date on your card. We use this information to create your listing and to process your payment.


Other Promotions


From time to time, we may offer promotions on our website. If you enter a promotional contest, we'll ask you to provide information about yourself (such as your name, address, and email address). Among other things, we'll need this information to contact you if you win. We may share this information with any co-sponsor of the contest, which we'll identify in the contest rules. If you don't want us to collect the information requested in the contest registration form or to provide it to co-sponsors, please do not enter the contests.


Credit Applications


We offer an online credit application as a service to dealers registered with our site. If you submit a credit application, we'll ask you to provide information about yourself (such as your name, address, and email address). Among other things, dealers will use this information to contact you or to submit a credit application for you. This information will be provided to the dealer that you submit the application to, and potentially to their preferred lender(s). If you don't want us to collect the information requested in the credit application, please do not fill out the online form, but contact a dealer directly with your information.


Email Addresses


If you provide us your email address, we'll send you from time to time, offers we think may be of interest to you. Though we hope you'll find these informative and useful, if you don't, you can always unsubscribe by following the simple instructions included in each email. And you can opt out of receiving the such emails at all by indicating, when you list a car for sale or inquire about a car listed on our website, that you'd prefer not to receive these offers.


Cookies


To help us tailor our website to the needs and interests of our visitors, we keep track of the pages visited by our users by placing a cookie, a small entry in text file, on your hard drive. The cookie contains an ID number that allows us to track the pages you've visited. We aggregate this data with data on the pages visited by other users to track overall visitor traffic patterns. We use this information to improve our site by making it more responsive to the needs of our users. We also use cookies to make sure you don't see the same ad repeatedly during a single visit to our site. Cookies don't reveal personal information; the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. Cookies can't read unrelated data off your hard drive. Our advertisers and those who provide products and/or services through our site may also assign their own cookies, a process we don't control. We don't have access to these cookies or to any information they contain. The help function on most web browsers contains information on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting a cookie or to disable cookies entirely. However, if you don't accept cookies, you won't be able to take advantage of various features on our site that are available to other visitors.


Use And Disclosure Of Information


When we present information to our advertisers -- to help them understand our audience and confirm the value of advertising on our website -- it is usually in the form of aggregated statistics on traffic to various pages within our site. When you list your car for sale on AUTORVWORLD.COM, AUTOTRUCKWORLD.CA, and CANADIANRVWORLD.CA, we may provide your contact information to our sales department, which may use this information to contact you about listing your vehicle for sale in AUTO & TRUCK WORLD and CANADIAN RV WORLD magazine. Any credit card or other sensitive information you may provide to us is secured during transmission over the Internet using industry-standard secure socket layer (SSL) encryption and is stored on our secure servers. We use your credit card information only to bill you for the products and services you order from us. We don't share your credit card information with anyone, except as may be necessary to process your transactions.


Links And Features Offered In Conjunction With Other Providers


To make our website more valuable to our visitors, we feature some products and services that come from other providers. Our finance, insurance, warranty, and inspection services, for example, are made available through cooperative arrangements with companies that specialize in providing such services. We share with these third parties such information as is necessary for them to provide the products or services. Of course, our site includes links to other websites, and provides access to products and services offered by third parties, whose privacy policies we don't control. When you access another website or purchase products or services or conduct other transactions through our website, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you're visiting or the provider of such products or services. When you provide information in the course of obtaining products or services through our site, use of any information you provide may be governed by the privacy policy of the provider of those products or services. The provider's privacy policy may differ from ours. If you can't find the privacy policy of any of our provider partners via a link either from their site's homepage or from the pages on which the products or services are offered, you should contact the provider directly for more information.


Other Disclosures


We may occasionally release information about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law, to enforce our Visitor Agreement, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our site, our customers, the public or AutoRVWorld. As our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event AutoRVWorld, or substantially all of its assets is acquired by another company, information on our visitors would be among the transferred assets. We also may allow others to search some of our databases (our listings database, for example) and to analyze the data they find there or aggregate it with other data, either for their business purposes, or ours. Though some of the information in our databases may be personally identifying (such as the contact information included in a vehicle listing), we'll only allow searches of the portions of our database that contain information that is otherwise publicly available on our website.


Security


Information we gather on our website is stored within AutoRVWorld - controlled databases (or databases hosted on our behalf) on servers maintained in protected environments. Any credit card or other sensitive information you provide us is secured for transmission over the Internet using industry-standard secure sockets layer (SSL) encryption. However, no physical or electronic security system is impenetrable. We (AutoRVWorld/Web Techtonics, LLC) cannot guarantee the security of our servers or databases, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. And, of course, any information you include in a vehicle listing is available to anyone with Internet access.


Changes To This Privacy Policy


The Web is an evolving medium. If we need to change our privacy policy at some point in the future, we'll post the changes to this Privacy Policy before they take effect. By visiting www.autotruckworld.ca, you agree that your visit, and any dispute over privacy, is governed by this Privacy Policy and our Visitor Agreement.
