Your privacy is important to us. At Auto Interests we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.

Like most website operators, AutoInterests collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. AutoInterests’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how AutoInterests’ visitors use its website. From time to time, AutoInterests may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
AutoInterests also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on its website. AutoInterests only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the website where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to AutoInterests’ websites choose to interact with AutoInterests in ways that require AutoInterests to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that AutoInterests gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our services to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with AutoInterests are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, AutoInterests collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with AutoInterests. AutoInterests does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain activities with AutoInterests.
AutoInterests may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. AutoInterests may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, AutoInterests does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
AutoInterests discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on AutoInterests’ behalf or to provide services available at AutoInterests’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using AutoInterests’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. AutoInterests will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, AutoInterests discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena or court order, or when AutoInterests believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of AutoInterests, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an AutoInterests website and have supplied your email address, AutoInterests may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with AutoInterests and our products. AutoInterests takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
