What Personal Information Do We Collect?
Armored AutoGroup collects personal information from visitors to this Site such as names, postal addresses, e-mail addresses, user ID, password and, if you make an online purchase, credit card information.
Personal information is collected only for specific purposes and with the knowledge of the person providing the personal information. To access the Site you are not required to register or submit any personal information.
The content of this Site is not directed to children and Armored AutoGroup does not knowingly collect personal information from persons under eighteen years of age.
Why Do We Collect This Personal Information?
Purposes for which Armored AutoGroup may collect personal information online include, but are not limited to:
Sweepstakes and Contest Entries. From time to time, Armored AutoGroup offers sweepstakes, contests and other promotions (each, a "Promotion") that require online registration. Persons wishing to participate in those Promotions are asked to provide some personal information. Some of the information requested for this purpose is optional, but other requested information, such as the individual's name and e-mail address, is mandatory because it will be needed to identify and notify winners. Also, some Promotions may require selection of a user ID and password by the individual. You should carefully review the rules, if any, of each Promotion in which you participate through the Site, as they may contain additional important information about Armored AutoGroup's use of your personal information. To the extent that the terms and conditions of such rules concerning the treatment of your personal information conflict with this Policy, the terms and conditions of such rules shall control.
Coupon and Rebate Requests. Visitors to the Site may be offered the opportunity to apply for rebates or request discount coupons associated with Armored AutoGroup products. Those visitors may be asked to provide certain personal information such as names, postal addresses and e-mail addresses in connection with those offers.
"Contact Us" and "Write to Us" Features. Armored AutoGroup encourages visitors to the Site to contact us with questions and requests. Armored AutoGroup also offers e-mail news updates for visitors who expressly request that service. Personal information of persons using these features may be collected in order to facilitate our responses to those inquiries.
Product Registration. Purchasers of certain Armored AutoGroup products may want to register their purchases online so that they can take advantage of warranties, product updates and other benefits. Purchasers are asked to submit certain personal information such as names, postal addresses and e-mail addresses as part of the product registration process.
Loyalty Program Registration. Armored AutoGroup offers various "loyalty" programs that provide benefits to purchasers of Armored AutoGroup products. The loyalty program online registration process requests personal information concerning the individual who signs up. Participants in loyalty programs also may need to provide personal information in order to redeem program benefits.
Requests for Consumer Brochures and Videos. Armored AutoGroup may offer product information, including brochures and videos, through the Site. Persons ordering those materials are asked to provide their name and postal address.
What Other Information Do We Collect?
We collect non-personally identifiable information, which does not personally identify you, in the following ways:
Consumer Surveys. Armored AutoGroup sometimes conducts online consumer surveys or asks for information from persons completing online forms. This information, such as household size, past purchases and household income, is provided voluntarily and is never required for participation in a sweepstakes, contest or loyalty program, to register a product or to obtain product information. When such information is not combined with any personal information, such information is considered to be non-personally identifiable information, as it does not personally identify you or any other user.
Aggregated Information. Additionally, we may aggregate personal information in a manner such that the information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site, for example, by using personal information to calculate the percentage of our users who have a particular telephone area code. Such aggregate information is considered non-personally identifiable information for purposes of this Policy.
"Clickstream" Data. The Site automatically collects certain data concerning its interactions with visitors that facilitate Site operation, management and planning. Such data may include the IP address of your computer, the date and time of an online request, the type of browser and operating system used by your computer, the time required to download information you requested, and error codes generated while your browser is in contact with the Site.
Tracking cookies allow a certain level of personalization of your experience using any of the Armored Auto web sites and social media pages, for instance letting you know if any Facebook friends have “liked” any Armored AutoGroup products on our Facebook pages. If you wish to disable any Tracking Cookies, you can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so click the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.)
However, if you configure your browser to reject all cookies as described in the paragraph above, that action will also disable any such third-party cookies.
How Do We Use the Personal Information We Collect?
Personal information provided by consumers and visitors to our Site is used to fulfill requests and transactions submitted through the Site. For example, if you choose to purchase a product or service through the Site, we may use your personal information to process your transaction and fulfill your order. If you contact us through the Site, we will use your personal information to respond to your queries and requests. If you register a product through the Site, we will use your personal information to fulfill your registration, and if you sign up for a loyalty program, we will use your personal information to administer the program.
From time to time, in our sole discretion, we may use your personal information to send to you important information regarding the Site, or changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information may be important to your use of the Site, you may not opt-out of receiving such communications.
If you choose to opt-in, we may use your personal information to send you marketing-related e-mails from us or from the particular brands to which you opted- in. If you change your mind, and would prefer not to receive such marketing-related e-mails, please review the "Opt-In Policy" section below.
We may also use your personal information for our internal business purposes, such as for data analysis, for audits, to improve our website, to analyze usage patterns and to improve our services.
When Do We Disclose the Personal Information We Collect?
We may provide your personal information to our third party service providers to fulfill requests and transactions submitted through the Site. For example, Armored AutoGroup may use third party service providers to conduct consumer surveys, and Armored AutoGroup sometimes shares information submitted in connection with sweepstakes, contests, loyalty programs and other programs with vendors that Armored AutoGroup has retained to administer those and other programs. Armored AutoGroup may also share certain information with third party organizations for the purpose of processing your credit card transactions. Armored AutoGroup seeks to restrict third parties' use of such data to the purposes for which it has been provided and to ensure the third parties do not disclose that information to unauthorized parties.
Armored AutoGroup may from time to time share your personal information with our affiliates, or with our business and promotional partners that offer products or services that we believe will be of interest to you. If would prefer that we not share your personal information with our affiliates or with our business and promotional partners for their marketing purposes, please review the "Opt-In Policy" section below.
Although Armored AutoGroup seeks to require companies with which it does business, and to which personal information is provided, to protect such personal information, Armored AutoGroup cannot be responsible for third parties' violations of this Policy or of any other rights of visitors or consumers that use this Site.
Armored AutoGroup may transfer personal information and other information, collected online from visitors and consumers, to a purchaser or successor entity in connection with the sale of Armored AutoGroup, a subsidiary or affiliate or line of business associated with Armored AutoGroup, or substantially all of the assets of Armored AutoGroup or one of its subsidiaries, affiliates or lines of business.
How Do We Use the Non-Personally Identifiable Information We Collect?
Because non-personally identifiable information does not personally identify you, we may use such information for any purpose. In addition, we reserve the right to share such non-personally identifiable information, which does not personally identify you, with third parties, for any purpose. For example, we may share non-personally identifiable information collected in connection with consumer surveys and other activities, with consumer research and marketing firms.
In some instances, we may combine non-personally identifiable information with personal information (such as embedding e-mail addresses in cookies or where specific programs associated with this Site require a user ID and password, and you have the option of requesting that we save your user ID and password so that you will not have to reenter that information the next time you access the Site — this function is accomplished by placement of a cookie). If we do combine any non-personally identifiable information with personal information, the combined information will be treated by us as personal information hereunder as long as it is so combined.
