Privacy

We at VehicleRegistration.com (the “Site”) respect your concerns about privacy. We value the trust you have placed in us. This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) describes the types of personal information we collect, how we may use that information, and with whom we may share it. Our Privacy Policy also describes the measures we take to protect the security of the information. In addition, we describe the choices you can make about how we use the information you provide us. We tell you how you can update your contact information, remove your name from our mailing list, or answer any questions you may have about our privacy practices. This Site is a privately-owned, for-profit website, and is not owned, operated or affiliated with the Government.


This Policy will inform you of the categories of personal information, including personally identifiable information, that we collect and categories of third parties with whom the information may be shared. The phrases "personal information" and "personally identifiable information" (PII) mean any information used or intended to be used to identify a particular individual, including name, address, telephone number, email address, financial account number, and government-issued identifier, and any other data that may tie back to a user’s personal data. This Policy is applicable only to this Site and not to any other websites that you may be able to access from this Site, each of which may collect data and use that data in a manner that materially differs from this Policy.


All activities in which you may engage on the Site are voluntary. If you do not agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy or our other terms of use on the Site, then you should immediately exit the Site and discontinue using the Site. If you do not agree with the terms of our Privacy Policy and the terms of use in our Visitor Agreement, please do not provide us with personal information, and exit the Site. The Visitor Agreement is expressly incorporated herein by reference and made a part of this Privacy Policy. A complete statement of Company’s terms of use can be found in the Visitor Agreement by clicking here.

This Site was created to provide access to information and resources for needs of drivers in the U.S., and is not applicable to drivers outside the United States.


Disclaimers

This Privacy Policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond Company’s control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation. This online Privacy Policy only applies to information collected through the Site. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any information we may collect from you in any place other than the Site.


Collecting Information About You

These actions, and this information, may be provided to advertisers or other partners as a method of targeting advertisements, both on and off the Site, or otherwise personalizing your experience on the site.

Cookies

Like many websites, we use computer "cookies," which are small amounts of data that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser. We collect the information in the cookie when you visit the Site. The cookies enable our systems to recognize you, provide features to you, track your visits, and/or analyze your use of the Site. You may be able to set your browser to reject cookies or to ask you whether to accept a particular cookie. There are also third-party utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. If, as a result of your settings, we cannot recognize you, we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at our Site.


We use third party advertising companies and networks to serve ads when you visit our Site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this Site and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. We also may place "beacons" on pages of the Site, which in conjunction with cookies utilized by third party advertising companies and networks, are used to target advertisements. These beacons, sometimes called "pixel tags," are small strings of code that are placed on website pages. The use of cookies by third party advertising companies and networks is subject to their own privacy policies. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies and networks, please visit Google Adsense and NAI Behavioral Opt-out.

That type of information (often referred to as traffic data) will remain anonymous and is not considered personal information unless you voluntarily tell us personally identifiable information and it is combined with the traffic data. Traffic data helps us analyze how the Site is used, device information, geographic information, and helps us improve your experience on the Site.

When you pay for any VehicleRegistration.com product using a credit card, we use your credit card information only to fulfill your order and for other internal purposes.


Website

Like many organizations, we use cookies and log files on our website. Cookies are small text files that websites often store on the computer hard drives of visitors to their sites. A cookie contains a unique code, used to recognize your computer when a user of your computer returns to a website that was visited previously. Log files are small text files that websites automatically create when a user visits a site. We use cookies and log files to enhance the online experience of our visitors and to better understand how our site is used. Cookies and log files may tell us, for example, whether you have visited our site before or whether you are a new visitor.


The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable existing cookies. There are also third party utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. Remember, though, without cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all our website features, including website personalization and retention of your information to facilitate filling out forms.


Special Offers and Instant Coupons

From time to time, we may offer you discounts and rewards provided by us or our affiliates. When you choose to download any special offers or instant coupons from our websites, we do not collect any personal information about you.


Other Ways We May Use Information to Provide Services

You may update your subscription preferences at any time.


Protection of Personal Information

The security of personal information is a high priority for us. We maintain online safeguards to protect against unauthorized disclosure, use, alteration and destruction of the personal information in our possession. In order to protect the security of your credit card information, we use the industry standard for Internet security - Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This Internet encryption standard scrambles data as it travels from your computer to our server. You’ll know that you’re in a secure area of our website when the “http” portion of the VehicleRegistration.com website address in your browser changes to “https.” The “s” stands for “secure.”


Even though we have taken significant steps to protect your personal information, no company, including us, can fully eliminate security risks associated with personal information. The Site has security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information that we obtain from you. Please keep in mind, however, that whenever you give out personal information online there is a risk that third parties may intercept and use that information. While Company strives to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online. By using the Site, you expressly acknowledge and agree that we do not guarantee the security of any data provided to or received by us through the Site and that any personal information, general information, or other data or information received from you through the Site is provided to us at your own risk, which you expressly assume.
