Automotive Marketing Consultants Incorporated (“AMCI”, “We”, “Our” or “Us”) understands that privacy is important to our web site users. We have created this Privacy Policy in order to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy. The Privacy Policy below discloses our practices regarding information collection and usage solely for the web site located at www.amciglobal.com (the “Web Site”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to any other web sites or services provided by us, our affiliates or clients, unless it appears on such web site or service.

BY USING OR ACCESSING THE WEB SITE, YOU SIGNIFY YOUR AGREEMENT TO BE BOUND BY OUR PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE THE WEB SITE OR SERVICE.

Personally Identifiable Information That We Collect: We do not collect personally-identifying information about you unless you voluntarily submit that information to us, such as through our contact pages, by e-mail, by seeking employment with AMCI or some other means. The personally identifiable information which you may provide to us could include your name, address, telephone number, usernames on certain social media, work portfolio/website address, company name, and e-mail address.

Non-Personal Or Aggregate Information That We Collect: When you visit the Web Site, we may automatically collect certain non-identifying information about you, such as the type of browser or device operating system you use, the domain name of the web site from which you linked to us, the location of your Internet Services provider, the amount of time you spend on the Web Site, the origin of your visit, basic demographic information based on public sources, the time you spent on our Web Site and the pages on the Web Site that you view. We may also aggregate information collected from our users (such as the number of users in a particular region or having particular characteristics).

Information Usage: We will only use your personally identifiable information as described below, unless you have specifically consented to another type of use, either at the time the personally identifiable information is collected from you or through some other form of consent from you or notification to you:

  • We will use personally identifiable information to operate the Web Site and to provide you with any specific services that you have requested.
  • We may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your direct inquires.
  • We will use your personally identifiable information to add you to our mailing lists and to send you emails from time to time.
  • We may permit our vendors and subcontractors to access your personally identifiable information, but they are only permitted to do so in connection with performing services for us. They are not authorized by us to use the information for their own benefit.
  • We may disclose personally identifiable information as required by law or legal process.
  • We may disclose personally identifiable information to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, or the policies for the Web Site.
  • We may transfer your personally identifiable information in connection with a bankruptcy proceeding or the sale, merger or change of control of AMCI or the division responsible for the services with which your personally identifiable information is associated.
  • When you submit a resume or job application through our Web Site, we may share those documents and the information therein with our third party service providers that help us manage personnel matters. They may only access and use such records in connection with performing services for us. They are not authorized by us to use the information for their own benefit.
  • We may contact you via phone/email, if explicitly requested by user for business development purposes.
  • Finally, please note that if you specifically consent to additional uses of your personally identifiable information, we may use your personally identifiable information in a manner consistent with that consent.

 

Non-personal or aggregate information may be shared with any number of parties, provided that such information shall not specifically identify you.

Interest Based Advertising: We may ourselves, or with third party vendors, use non-personally identifiable information in connection with our own or vendor information to deliver targeted advertising to you when you visit other web sites or our Web Site. Cookies, clickstream data, and other similar technologies described below may be used in this process. For example, if you are searching for information on a particular product, we or our vendor may cause an advertisement to appear on other web sites you view with information on that product. This form of advertising, sometimes called “behavioral advertising,” is based on anonymous information and not on any personally identifiable information. As a result, we and our vendor know your interests, but cannot personally identify you in connection with the delivery of that specific ad. We believe that such advertising is helpful because you will see advertisements that are relevant to your interests. However, if you would like to opt-out of these interest-based advertisements, please follow the opt-out process described below under “Opt Out.”

Cookies/tracking: We may store some information on your device or device hard drive as a “cookie” or similar type of file (such as clear gifs, web beacons, tags, etc.) for the purpose of facilitating and enhancing your communication and interaction with the Web Site. Many web sites use cookies for these purposes. We use this information internally, to help us maintain and enhance the efficiency and usefulness of the Web Site. We may also use and place cookies on your device from our third party service providers in connection with the Web Site, such as an analytics provider that helps us manage and analyze Web Site usage and tags from social media providers as described below in the section “Social Networking Services.” We use session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. Our persistent cookie remains active on your hard drive for up to one (1) year. We set a persistent cookie to enable us to track and target the interests of users to enhance the services we provide You may stop or restrict the placement of cookies on your device or flush them from your browser by adjusting your web browser preferences, in which case you may still use our Web Site, but it may interfere with some of its functionality. Cookies and similar items are not used by us to automatically retrieve personally identifiable information from your device without your knowledge.

Clickstream Data: As you use the Internet, a trail of electronic information is left at each web site you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as “clickstream data,” can be collected and stored by a web site’s server. Clickstream data can tell us the type of device and browsing software you use and the address of the web site from which you linked to the Web Site. We may collect and use clickstream data to anonymously determine how much time visitors spend on web sites, how visitors navigate throughout web sites and how we may tailor our Web Site to better meet consumer needs. This information will be used to improve our Web Site and our services. Any collection or use of clickstream data will be anonymous, and will not intentionally contain any personally identifiable data.

Security and Data Retention: We have undertaken and will undertake commercially reasonable efforts designed to prevent unauthorized access to user data retained in our servers, however, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information provided online. We retain your personally identifiable information, if provided by you through the Web Site, for as long as your inquiry is active (as determined by us) and for a reasonable time thereafter, or if applicable, for as long as you remain on our marketing list. We also may retain your personally identifiable information for a longer period of time as needed to provide you services or as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements. Even if we delete some or all of your personally identifiable information, we may continue to retain and use aggregate or anonymous data previously collected and/or anonymize or aggregate your personal information. Please note that we will not be liable for disclosures of your data due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties.

Other Web Sites: As a convenience to you, we may provide links to third party web sites from within the Web Site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these third party sites, and by providing a link we are not endorsing or promoting such third party sites. When you link away from our Web Site, you do so at your own risk. We encourage you to read the policies and terms of every web site you visit.

Social Networking Services: The Web Site may integrate with social networking services. You understand that we do not control such services and are not liable for the manner in which they operate. While we may provide you with the ability to use such services in connection with our Web Site, we are doing so merely as an accommodation and, like you, are relying upon those third party services to operate properly and fairly.

Specifically, this Web site may contain tags provided by Twitter and Facebook designed to collect information from you while you use this Web Site. Such providers will use this information on their services and according to their privacy policies and other terms. Again, we do not control how such services operate. You may be able to exercise certain controls over their use of your data through your accounts at www.twitter.com and www.facebook.com.

You should be aware that personally identifiable information which you voluntarily include and transmit online in a publicly accessible blog, social network or otherwise online may be viewed and used by others. We are unable to control such uses of your personally identifiable information, and by using such services you assume the risk that the personally identifiable information provided by you may be viewed and used by third parties.

Information Relating to Children: Our Web Site is designed for those 13 years of age and older. We do not knowingly collect information from anyone under the age of 13. If we are made aware that we have received such information, or any information in violation of our policy, we will use reasonable efforts to locate and remove that information from our records.

Communications with AMCI: By providing your email address to us, you expressly consent to receive emails from us. We may use email to communicate with you, to send information that you have requested or to send information about other services provided by us, provided that, we will not give your email address to another party to promote their products or services directly to you without your consent or as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

While it is our policy not to accept unsolicited marketing ideas, you expressly agree that we are free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in any communication you send to us without compensation and for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to, developing, manufacturing and marketing products and services using such information.

Changes to Privacy Policy: We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions from this Privacy Policy at any time. However, if at any time in the future we plan to use personally identifiable information in a way that materially differs from this Privacy Policy, we will post such changes here. We encourage you to periodically review the Web Site for the latest information on our privacy practices.

Opt-Out Process: To opt-out of any future promotional messages from us, you should send an unsubscribe request to us at info@amciglobal.com. We will process your request within a reasonable time after receipt. However, we are not responsible for removing your personally identifiable information from the lists of any third party who has previously been provided with your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy or your consent.

As noted above, you may opt-out of or restrict the placement of cookies on your device or remove them from your browser by adjusting your web browser preferences. Please note that cookie-based opt-outs are not effective on many mobile devices. However, on many mobile devices, application users may opt out of certain mobile ads via their device settings.

Targeted Advertising: We may, and may work with third parties, to use non-personally identifiable information to delivery targeted advertisements to you based upon your online activities and other information. The online advertising industry provides a service through which you may opt-out of receiving targeted ads from certain data partners and other advertising partners that participate in self-regulatory programs. We comply with the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising set forth by the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA). You can opt-out of targeted advertising from certain providers at www.aboutads.info/consumers.

Please note that by opting out, you will continue to see generic advertising that is not tailored to your specific interests and activities. To be clear, whether you are using our opt-out or an online industry opt-out, these cookie-based opt-outs must be performed on each device and browser that you wish to have opted-out. For example, if you have opted out on your device browser, that opt-out will not be effective on your mobile device. You must separately opt out on each device.

Please note that we do not respond to or honor “do not track” (a/k/a/ DNT) signals or similar mechanisms transmitted by web browsers.
