MakeDealersCompete.com Privacy Policy

Welcome to MakeDealersCompete.com (the "Site"). We take your privacy seriously. We understand that privacy concerns are extremely important to our customers. We would like to assure you that we are committed to protecting your personal privacy. We provide this statement (the "Privacy Policy") explaining our online information practices. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available through a link on all of our pages. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy.

Collection of Information
The Site currently collects personally identifiable information through your voluntary submission of a quote request form or through your voluntary submission of a “Contact us”, or other similar form available on the Site. When you request a quote, the types of information that we collect in conjunction with a quote request may include your name, address, phone number, e-mail address and information regarding the particular vehicle(s) that you are interested in. You must provide all required fields of information for your request to be processed.

The Site also passively collects information about you through the use of cookies and other technical means. Cookies are small text files that reside on your computer’s hard drive. If you do not wish to accept cookies, you may configure your browser to reject them, but certain features of the Site may not function properly or at all as a result. In addition, our web servers automatically collect information about your computer and the web browser that you are using, including your computer's Internet Protocol (“IP”) address.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, please visit Google or NAI.

How Quote Request Process Works
When you fill out our quote request form, we transfer your information, including your name, phone number, street address, e-mail address and any additional information you provide, to third-party providers, which will process your request through their dealer network. After your request is delivered to a dealer, a dealer representative should contact you by phone or e-mail to discuss your car quote request. After the initial contact or during any other subsequent contact, you may inform the dealer you no longer wish to be contacted by him or her. It is solely the dealer’s responsibility to comply with your request. When we transfer your information to a third-party provider partner in order to carry out your request, you may also be contacted by that provider. You may inform the third-party provider you no longer wish to be contacted. It is solely the third-party provider's responsibility to comply with your request.

We may use and/or disclose personally identifiable information you submit through the Site in the following ways:

2. Reporting

4. Service Providers
We may provide personal information to other third parties that it believes will be able to provide you with valuable products, services, or other information that may be of interest. As such third parties may keep and use your information whether or not you purchase their products or use their services, your personal information will be subject to their privacy policies, and you should contact them directly for more information about their specific privacy policies.

For example, cookies may be used to measure traffic, collect statistical information (such as which pages of the Site are visited most often by users) and to make your visit more pleasant.

In addition to the practices described above, we reserve the right to use and share with any third party non-personally identifying information collected through your use of the Site for any reason.
