Collection and Use of Personal Information

This Privacy Policy describes the types of information we collect when you use our Site/App or Services, how we use that information, and the instances in which we share your information.

CarBlip, which is a digital tool (“Site/App”) that provides, among other things, the ability for online consumers (“Buyers”) to submit an offer to buy, finance or lease a vehicle at a price they desire, and the ability for interested parties to accept the offer (“services”). As we are incorporated in the United States of America, your information will be transmitted to, held and processed by us there in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

  1. Information we Collect

We collect two kinds of information related to you: (a) Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”); and (b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”).

 

  • Personally Identifiable Information: PII includes any information that identifies you as a person. We collect your PII when you choose to register with us or when you choose to participate in the feature of our Site/App that lets you submit an offer to buy, finance or lease a vehicle. This information may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, phone number, and physical contact information.
  • Non-Personally Identifiable Information: Non-PII is any information that does not identify you as a person including PII which has been rendered anonymous. We obtain non-PII either separately or together with your PII as described above. We collect certain non-PII from you when you access our Site/App including IP addresses and information relating to your browser, operating system, ISP, the third party website from which your visit originated and how you use our Site/App such as the web pages you visit, and the duration of your visits.
  1. How We Use the Information Collected

PII and Non-PII is used to provide, or improve, our Site/App and Services to you and to carry out your offer submissions, respond to your inquiries, better serve you and understand your needs, or is used in other ways naturally associated with the circumstances in which you provided the information.

 

  1. We may disclose Non-PII to:
    • All participating dealers
    • Our third party service providers who perform functions on our behalf in connection with the operation of the Site/App or Services e.g., providers who host and manage data, process credit card orders, etc;
  1. We may disclose PII and Non-PII to:
    • All participating dealers, only after your offer was accepted.
    • Our third party service providers who perform functions on our behalf in connection with the operation of the Site/App/ or Services e.g., providers who host and manage data, etc;
  1. In addition, we use non-PII to help analyze Site/App traffic, understand customer needs and trends, carry out targeted promotional activities. We may use your non-PII by itself or aggregate it with information we have obtained from others to produce research reports and other information and data about online shopping for participating dealers and other customers, as well as media and other interested parties.
  2. CarBlip does not control the privacy policies of our dealer partners, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those dealers where applicable. CarBlip is not and cannot be responsible if you disclose additional information to a dealer after an offer has been accepted.
  1. Security of Information

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission.` Please be advised, however, that while we strive to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your PII. In the unfortunate event that we will become aware that your personally identifiable information is compromised, we will make our best efforts to notify you by e-mail to the last e-mail address you have provided us as soon as feasible under the circumstances (delays in notification may occur while we take measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system, as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation)
