Car Parts Wreckers Shack’s Privacy Guarantee
Our Privacy Guarantee is really quite simple: We respect yours.
If you need more detail than that, please read on.
We believe clients like you deserve to be treated with the utmost respect. And that includes respecting your right to privacy. Here’s how we guarantee that.
Data Collection and Storage How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our site or request certain features, such as newsletters or when you make a purchase. You may provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other interactive areas of our site.
Like most Web sites, carpartswreckersshack.com, also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology to recognize you and hold information from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site.
As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and we may not be able to customise the site’s features according to your preferences.
Your Email Address Your email address may be automatically added to my internal database whenever you:
1. Place an order. 2. Request a information. 3. Subscribe to my newsletter or chapter 1 39 money puzzles. 4. Request additional information by email.
To “unsubscribe” or delete your email address from my list, simply send a blank email with “remove” in the subject line to: email@example.com You can also mail your request to me at: Car Parts Wreckers Shack, 51 Orchard Rd Brookvale NSW 2100 Australia.
Cookies Like most online merchants, my website uses “cookies” to enhance your online shopping experience. Cookies are just little packages of data that my server sends to your computer. They cannot tell me anything about you or your computer and no other website or server except mine can access the cookies my site sends. Cookies simply allow me to track the contents of your shopping cart and personalize my site content. Without them, you’d have to write down each item you wanted to buy and then type the information into a manual form to complete your order. What a hassle!
Thanks to cookies, ordering is quick and easy. You can browse all my product pages, just click on the items you want to add to your cart and my system will store them until you’re ready to check out. And, when you come back to shop the next time, you won’t have to re-enter your name and address info again – the cookies remember it for you, so that the checkout process is quick and convenient every time you shop. For your peace of mind though, I will ask you to re-enter your credit information every time you shop. I don’t permit my cookies to store this information. This also allows you to choose a different payment option, if you wish.
IP Address My server automatically receives and records information on my server logs from your browser including your IP Address and information about the page you have requested to view. This tells us which pages my clients are most interested in, and helps me tailor my site according to my customers’ wants and needs.
Like other Web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. We respect your privacy and do not share your information with anyone.
Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive). Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually.
Personally Identifiable Information collected by carpartswreckersshack.com may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes and contests, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
