  1. Information Collection.

    We collect the following information (collectively, “Personal Information”):

    1. User-Provided Information:You may provide to Gettacar personal information when using our Services. This information may include:

      • Business and personal contact information,such as your first and last name, email and mailing addresses, phone number, professional title and company name.
      • Profile information,such as your username and password that you may set to establish an online account with us, and your interests and preferences.
      • Registration information,such as information that may be related to a service, an account or an event you register for.
      • Feedback or correspondence,such as information you provide when you contact us with questions, feedback, or otherwise correspond with us online.
      • Demographic Information,such as your city, state, country of residence, postal code, and age.
      • Financial information,such as your stated income, credit report and/or score, financial account numbers, payment card information, and proof of insurance.
      • Government-issued identification numbers,such as a Social Security Number, driver’s license number, and an image of the relevant identification card.
      • Transaction information,such as information about payments to and from you and other details of products or services you have purchased from us.
      • Precise geolocation information,such as when you authorize our mobile application to access your location.
      • Usage information,such as information about how you use the Services and interact with us, including information associated with any content you upload to the websites or otherwise submit to us, and information you provide when you use any interactive features of the Services.
      • Marketing information,such as your preferences for receiving communications about our activities, events, and publications, and details about how you engage with our communications
      • Other informationthat we may collect which is not specifically listed here, but which we will use in accordance with this Privacy Policy or as otherwise disclosed at the time of collection.

      The personal information that we collect will vary depending on the specific features of the Services that you use. For example, we may collect additional information from an individual who purchases and finances a vehicle through the Services, compared to an individual who only registers for an account with us and browses vehicles online. We may collect and store this personal information. If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address, and our responses. If you use your Facebook, Twitter, or other social networking site (“SNS”) account information to sign in to our Services, we will collect and store your SNS user ID. If you connect your Gettacar account with your SNS account (such as to enable posting from Gettacar), we ask for your permission to collect certain information from your SNS account (such as information from your SNS profile). You also provide us information in connection with your use of our Services, your communications, order history, and any other information shared from your use of our Services, and metadata about this use (such as time and location, if applicable) are collected and stored by us.

    2. Cookies and Other Information Collected by Automated Means:We, our service providers, and our business partners may automatically log information about you, your computer or mobile device, and activity occurring on or through the Services, including but not limited, your computer or mobile device operating system type and version number, manufacturer and model, device identifier (such as the Google Advertising ID or Apple ID for Advertising), browser type, screen resolution, IP address, the website you visited before browsing to our website, general location information such as city, state or geographic area; information about your use of and actions on the Services, such as pages or screens you viewed, how long you spent on a page or screen, navigation paths between pages or screens, information about your activity on a page or screen, access times, and length of access; and other personal information. Our service providers and business partners may collect this type of information over time and across third-party websites and mobile applications.

      On our webpages, this information is collected using cookies, browser web storage (also known as locally stored objects, or “LSOs”), web beacons, and similar technologies, and our emails may also contain web beacons.

      A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor‘s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. Browser web storage, or LSOs, are used for similar purposes as cookies. Browser web storage enables the storage of a larger amount of data than cookies. A “web beacon,” also known as a pixel tag or clear GIF, is typically used to demonstrate that a webpage was accessed or that certain content was viewed, typically to measure the success of our marketing campaigns or engagement with our emails and to compile statistics about usage of our websites.

      We may also use Flash LSOs on our website to collect and store information about your use of our website. Unlike cookies, Flash LSOs cannot be removed or rejected via your browser settings. If you do not want Flash LSOs stored on your computer or mobile device, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash LSO storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash LSOs by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions. Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash LSOs may reduce or impede the functionality of Flash applications that we may use in connection with our website.

      Web browsers may offer users of our websites or mobile apps the ability to disable receiving certain types of cookies; however, if cookies are disabled, some features or functionality of our websites may not function correctly. Please see the “Targeted online advertising” section for information about how to exercise choice regarding the use of browsing behavior for purposes of targeted advertising.

    3. Information from Other Sources:We may also obtain information, including personal information, from third parties and sources other than Gettacar, such as advertisers or other users who import your email address from their address book. We may also, at your direction, receive information from third party service that provide a mechanism to expose information you have provided to such third party through the use of an application program interface (API), such as Facebook Connect. If we combine or associate information from other sources with personal information that we collect through our Services, we will treat the combined information as personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

  2. Information Usage.

    We use your Personal Information to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features and services found on our Services. We may use your email address to send you Services related notices (including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail). You can control receipt of certain Services-related messages on your Settings page. We may also use your contact information to send you marketing email messages. If you do not want to receive such messages, you may opt out by following the instructions in the message. We use personal information to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our users, to improve the way our Services work and look, and to create new features and functionality.

    When you apply for a loan, we use the information you provide and which we obtain from your credit report to process the loan application.

    We also may work with advertising partners to display advertisements on the Service or elsewhere online. These advertisements are delivered by our advertising partners and may be targeted based on your use of the Services or your activity elsewhere online. To learn more about your choices in connection with advertisements, please see the section below titled “Targeted online advertising.”

    In addition, we may use your personal information and disclose it to law enforcement, government authorities, and private parties as we believe necessary or appropriate to: (a) comply with applicable laws, lawful requests, and legal process, such as to respond to subpoenas or requests from government authorities; (b) protect our, your or others’ rights, privacy, safety or property (including by making and defending legal claims); (c) enforce the terms and conditions that govern the Service; and (d) protect, investigate and deter against fraudulent, harmful, unauthorized, unethical or illegal activity.

    In some cases we may specifically ask for your consent to collect, use or share your personal information, such as when required by law.

    We may also create anonymous, aggregated or de-identified data from your personal information and other individuals whose personal information we collect. We make personal information into anonymous, aggregated or de-identified data by removing information that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We may use this anonymous, aggregated or de-identified data and share it with third parties for our lawful business purposes, including to analyze and improve the Service and promote our business.

    We may use “automatically collected” information and “cookies” information to: (a) personalize our Services, such as remembering your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit our Services; (b) monitor and analyze the effectiveness of our Services and third party marketing activities; (c) monitor aggregate site usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed; and (d) track your entries, submissions, and status in any promotions or other activities.

  3. Information Protection.

    We use commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your Personal Information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or guarantee that your Personal Information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of the safeguards that we use.

  4. Information Disclosure.

    Your privacy is very important to us. We do, however, disclose your Personal Information in a variety of circumstances at our discretion including, as follows:

    1. We may share your personal information with our corporate parent, subsidiaries, and affiliates, for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.
    2. We may share automatically collected and other aggregate non-personally-identifiable information with interested third parties to assist such parties in understanding the usage, viewing, and demographic patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on our Services.
    3. We work with third party companies and individuals that provide services on our behalf or help us operate the Services (such as customer support, website hosting and maintenance, analytics, email delivery, marketing, and database management services). These third parties may use your personal information only as directed or authorized by us and in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy, and are prohibited from using or disclosing your information for any other purpose.
    4. We may sometimes share your personal information with partners or enable partners to collect information directly via our Services. For example, when you authorize us to do so, we may request your credit report from a credit reporting agency and share your personal information to enable us to obtain vehicle financing offers or insurance quotes.
    5. We may disclose your personal information to professional advisors, such as lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers, where necessary in the course of the professional services that they render to us.
    6. We may also disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by Law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with Law, in response to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena or warrant, or to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement activity.
    7. We may disclose your personal information to law enforcement, government authorities, and private parties as we believe necessary or appropriate to: (a) comply with applicable laws, lawful requests, and legal process, such as to respond to subpoenas or requests from government authorities; (b) protect our, your or others’ rights, privacy, safety or property (including by making and defending legal claims); (c) enforce the terms and conditions that govern the Service; and (d) protect, investigate and deter against fraudulent, harmful, unauthorized, unethical or illegal activity.
    8. We reserve the right to transfer all Personal Information in our possession to a successor organization in the event of a merger, acquisition, or bankruptcy or other sale of all or a portion of our assets. Other than to the extent ordered by a bankruptcy or other court, the use and disclosure of all transferred Personal Information will be subject to this Privacy Policy, or to a new privacy policy if you are given notice of that new privacy policy and an opportunity to affirmatively opt-out of it. Personal Information submitted or collected after a transfer, however, may be subject to a new privacy policy adopted by our successor organization.
  5. Your Choices.

    1. Choosing not to share your personal information.You may, of course, decline to share certain personal information with us, in which case we may not be able to provide to certain Services to you.
    2. Correcting your information.You may update, correct, or delete certain personal information in your account profile by accessing your account preferences page. Please note that while your changes are reflected promptly in active user databases, we may retain all information you submit for a variety of purposes, including backups and archiving, prevention of fraud and abuse, and analytics.
    3. Opt-out of marketing.You may opt out of marketing-related emails by following the opt-out or unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of the email, or by contacting us at [email protected]. You may continue to receive service-related and other non-marketing emails. You may opt back in to receive marketing messages, for instance if you subsequently submit a credit application. If you receive marketing text messages from us, you may opt out of receiving further marketing text messages from us by replying STOP to our marketing message.
    4. Targeted online advertising.Some of the business partners that collect information about users’ activities on or through the Service may be members of organizations or programs that provide choices to individuals regarding the use of their browsing behavior or mobile application usage for purposes of targeted advertising.

      Users may opt out of receiving targeted advertising on websites through members of the Network Advertising Initiative by clicking here or the Digital Advertising Alliance by clicking here. Please note that we also may work with companies that offer their own opt-out mechanisms and may not participate in the opt-out mechanisms that we linked above.

      In addition, your mobile device settings may provide functionality to limit our, or our partners’, ability to engage in ad tracking or targeted advertising using the Google Advertising ID or Apple ID for Advertising associated with your mobile device.

      If you choose to opt-out of targeted advertisements, you will still see advertisements online but they may not be relevant to you. Even if you do choose to opt out, not all companies that serve online behavioral advertising are included in this list, so you may still receive some cookies and tailored advertisements from companies that are not listed.

    5. Do Not Track.Some Internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services that you visit. We currently do not respond to “Do Not Track” or similar signals. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
  6. Other Sites, Mobile Applications, and Services.

    Our Services may contain links to websites, mobile applications, and other online services operated by third parties. In addition, our content may be included on web pages or in mobile applications or online services that are not associated with us. We do not control and are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of third party sites, mobile applications, or online services to which we link. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of the other websites, mobile applications and online services you use.

  7. International Data Transfers.

    Gettacar is headquartered in the United States, and we may have service providers in other countries. Your personal information may be transferred to the United States or other locations outside of your state, province, or country where privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your state, province, or country.

  8. Notice to California Residents.

    We are required by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) to provide to California residents an explanation of how we collect, use and share their personal Information, and of the rights and choices we offer California residents regarding our handling of the personal information.

    This Notice to California Residents does not apply to information that is (a) subject to the federal Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act or the California Financial Information Privacy Act, such as the information we process in connection with financial products or services, such as vehicle financing; or (b) information that is disclosed to a consumer reporting agency to be reported in, or used to generate, a consumer report, where the use of that information is subject to the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, such as when we obtain a credit report in connection with a loan application.

    Personal Information We Collect, Use and Share.Here is a summary of how we currently collect, use and share personal information, and how we have collected, used and shared the information in the preceding 12 months.

    While we refer to the term “sell” or “sale” in the right column of this chart, as the CCPA requires, please note that CCPA defines “sale” very broadly to include most sharing of personal information where the recipient may use the information for its own purposes, even when we do not get paid for the information.

    Please note that we may also disclose all personal information (a) to comply with federal, state, or local laws; (b) to comply with a civil, criminal, or regulatory inquiry, investigation, subpoena, or summons by federal, state, or local authorities; (c) to cooperate with law enforcement agencies concerning conduct or activity that we believe may violate federal, state, or local law, (d) when we sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of our business or assets, including personal information, in connection with a business transaction (or potential business transaction), or (e) to professional advisors, such as lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers, where necessary in the course of the professional services that they render to us. These disclosures are not “sales” under the CCPA.

    Visit the Glossary for a list of data categories and elements.

    California Residents’ Privacy Rights
    The CCPA grants California residents the following rights:

    • Information.You can request information about how we have collected, used and shared and used your personal information during the past 12 months. We have made this this information available to California residents without having to request it by including it in this notice, in the above chart.
    • Access.You can request a copy of the personal information that we maintain about you.
    • Deletion.You can ask us to delete the personal information that we collected or maintain about you.
    • Opt-out of sale of your personal information.If we “sell” your personal information, you can direct us to stop selling your information. While we refer to the term “sell” or “sale” as the CCPA requires, please note that the CCPA defines “sale” very broadly to include most sharing of Personal Information where the recipient may use the information for its own purposes, even when the recipient does not pay us for the information.
    • Non-discrimination.California residents have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for the exercise of these privacy rights conferred by the CCPA.

    Please note that the CCPA limits these rights by, for example, prohibiting us from providing certain sensitive information in response to an access request and limiting the circumstances in which we must comply with a deletion request. If we deny your request, we will communicate our decision to you.

    How to Submit a Request
    To request access to or deletion of personal information:

    To opt out of the sale of your information visit California Residents - Do Not Sell My Info.

    Identity verification.We will need to confirm your identity and California residency to process your requests to exercise your information, access or deletion rights. We cannot process your request if you do not provide us with sufficient detail to allow us to understand and respond to it.

    Authorized agents.California residents can empower an “authorized agent” to submit requests on their behalf. We will require the authorized agent to have a written authorization confirming that authority.

  9. Changes to Our Privacy Policy.

    We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you by updating the date of this Privacy Policy and posting it on the Service. We may, and if required by law, will, also provide notification of changes in another way that we believe is reasonably likely to reach you, such as via e-mail (if you have an account where we have your contact information) or another manner through the Services. Any modifications to this Privacy Policy will be effective upon our posting the new terms and/or upon implementation of the new changes on the Service (or as otherwise indicated at the time of posting). In all cases, your continued use of the Service after the posting of any modified Privacy Policy indicates your acceptance of the terms of the modified Privacy Policy.

California Consumer Privacy Act Opt-Out Choices

Last updated: 11-28-2019

Like many companies online, we use services provided by Google, Facebook and others that help deliver interest-based ads to you. California law may classify our use of these services as a “sale” of Personal Information from which California residents have the right to opt-out.  This is because we let the companies that provide these services collect information from our users (e.g., device data and online activity data) to help serve interest-based ads online. Your choices for limiting collection and/or use of your Personal Information by these companies include:
