Your Privacy Rights
Last Updated: December 21, 2016
1. Information Collected by Toyota
2. Information Collected by US
We use pixel tags to measure internet traffic on the Platforms. Pixel tags are transparent images, sometimes called a web beacon or tracking beacon, that are placed on a web page to gather information about when and how often a web page has been viewed (“Pixel-Tag Information”). A pixel tag may also tell your browser to get content from another server. Pixel tags assist in collecting your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for the device (computer, mobile phone, tablet, or other device) you use to access the Platforms. A Device Identifier is a number that is assigned to your device when you access a website or its servers, and our computers identify your device by its Device Identifier.
3. how we use information we collect
We and the Dealers use the information we collect or are given about and from you for a variety of business purposes. For example, it may be used to respond to your questions and requests for product information, new vehicle information alerts, and brochures; to advise you of important safety-related information; to enable you to participate in promotional activities or other programs; to verify your identity; to communicate with you; to tailor content, advertisements, and offers we or the Dealers serve you; to improve the Platforms; to comply with license obligations; and for any other purposes disclosed at the time you provide any personally identifiable information or otherwise consent or as permitted or required by law. We may use a Device Identifier to, among other things, administer the Platforms, help diagnose problems with our servers, analyze trends, track users’ web page movements, help identify you and your shopping cart, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
4. Sharing of information
Legal disclosure. We may transfer and disclose information collected through the Platform to third parties to comply with a legal obligation; when we believe in good faith that the law or a governmental authority requires it; to verify or enforce any other applicable policies; to address fraud, security, or technical issues; to respond to an emergency; or otherwise to protect our rights or property or the security of third parties, visitors to the Platform, or the public.
“Do-not-track” signals. Some browsers have a “do-not-track” feature that informs a website that the user does not want to have the user’s online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, so we are not currently set up to respond to those signals.
5. information we received from third parties
We may receive information about you from third parties. We may supplement the information we or the Dealers collect about you through the Platforms with such information from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you, and/or to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
6. your privacy rights, choice, and access
7. ADVERTISING/BEHAVIORAL TARGETING; HOW TO OPT-OUT
If you prefer to not receive targeted advertising, you can opt-out of some network advertising programs that may use your information. To do so, please visit the DAA Opt-Out Page. Please note that even if you choose to remove your information (opt-out), you will still see advertisements while you’re browsing online. However the advertisements you see may be less relevant to you and your interests. Additionally, many network advertising programs allow you to view and manage the interest categories they have compiled from your online browsing activities. These interest categories help determine the types of targeted advertisements you may receive. The DAA Opt-Out Page provides a tool that identifies its member companies that have cookies on your browser and provides links to those companies. In addition, certain advertisements may provide links to allow you to opt-out of targeted advertising or programs from their network.
The Platforms are not directed to children under 13. We do not knowingly collect, use, or disclose personally identifiable information from anyone under 13 years of age. If we determine upon collection that a user is under this age, we will not use or maintain his/her personal information without the parent/guardian’s consent. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personally identifiable information from a child under the age of 13, we will make reasonable efforts to delete such information from our records.
9. Security of Your Information
We take information security seriously and use certain reasonable security measures to help protect your personal information. However, no electronic data transmission or storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you use the Platforms and provide us with your information at your own risk. WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY HARM THAT YOU OR ANY PERSON MAY SUFFER AS A RESULT OF A BREACH OF CONFIDENTIALITY IN RESPECT TO YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORMS OR ANY INFORMATION YOU TRANSMIT TO THE PLATFORMS.
10. Other WEBSites
The Platforms may contain links to other websites that we do not own or operate, as well as links from advertisers, sponsors, and/or partners. We do not control, recommend, or endorse and are not responsible for these websites or their content, products, services, or privacy policies or practices, even though they may use our name or logo on their website through an agreement with us. These other websites may send their own cookies to your device, they may independently collect data or solicit personal information, and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. You should also independently assess the authenticity of any website which appears or claims that it is related to us or our Platforms (including those linked to through an email or social networking page).
11. CONSENT TO PROCESSING AND TRANSFER OF INFORMATION
The Platforms are governed by and operated in, and in accordance with the laws of, the State of Arizona. Given that Toyota is an international business and conducts business with international businesses, its use of your information may involve the transmission of data on an international basis. If you are located in the European Union, Canada, or elsewhere outside of the United States, please be aware that information we, Toyota or a Dealer collect may be transferred to and processed in the United States. By using or visiting the Platforms, or providing us with any information, you (a) acknowledge that the Platforms are subject to the laws of the State of Arizona, (b) consent to the collection, processing, maintenance, and transfer of such information in and to the United States and other applicable territories in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as or equivalent to those in the country where you reside and/or are a citizen, and (c) waive any claims that may arise under those laws.
