COLLECTION OF INFORMATION:
The purchase of a motor vehicle required a considerable accumulation of nonpublic personal information. For example, if we sell or lease you a vehicle extending you credit at your request we will receive information from you in order to determine your creditworthiness. We may also obtain information from a credit-reporting agency. We may also obtain information from third parties such as employers, references and insurance companies.
State or Federal Agencies, such as the Department of Motor Vehicles or the Internal Revenue Service may require some of the information we obtain from you. This information may be required even if you were to pay cash for your vehicle. Examples would be a driver's license or social security number.
PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION:
We only share information:
- As permitted by Federal or State laws.
- For purpose of processing a sale or lease transaction as you request or authorize, such as submitting information to a third party financial institution that may be requested to take an assignment of the contract or verifying insurance coverage information.
- When using outside service providers to help us provide you with products and services. Before providing information to our service providers we enter into contractual agreements prohibiting them from disclosing or using the information other than for the purpose it was disclosed.
- With "affiliated" companies. Companies that are affiliated with us include any company that controls us, any company we control, or any company under common control with us.
Please be assured that we place the highest priority on protecting and keeping our customer's personal information secured.
We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those associates, representatives and employees who need to know this information to provide you with products and services. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with Federal regulations to guard your nonpublic personal information.
