Kia of Portland is committed to respecting the privacy rights of our customers and all visitors to our web site. We take this matter very seriously and have instituted many policies and procedures to ensure that your privacy rights are safeguarded. The following outlines Kia of Portland privacy policies and details the measures we have taken to protect your privacy, while providing you with a unique and rewarding online shopping experience. This policy was implemented as of June 1, 2018 and applies to information collected on this website and those of our affiliates and covers the following areas:
• What personally identifiable information is collected by Kia of Portland or by any third party through our website; • How Kia of Portland uses this information;
• With whom Kia of Portland may share this information;
• What choices are available to you as a user of our website with respect to collection, use and distribution of the information; and • What types of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control.
Information Collection and Use
Kia of Portland collects two different types of information through our website: anonymous information and personally identifiable information.
First, we collect anonymous, aggregate information (such as a domain name or IP address) from all visitors to our website. You may search our website for car models, prices and other information provided through our website without ever submitting your name, email address or any other personally identifiable information. The anonymous information that we do collect from your visit is never linked to any of your personally identifiable information until you voluntarily submit that personal information. Otherwise, the anonymous information is only used in the aggregate to generate statistical reports about the use of our website. We may provide this anonymous information in aggregate form to other parties or use it for our own insight or marketing purposes. Our use of this anonymous or aggregate information about our visitors and customers remains in a form that is not linked to any personally identifiable information, nor does it otherwise identify any particular visitor or customer. Our ability to use this information is not restricted in any way.
We also use your IP address and cookies to help identify you after you have created an order or otherwise have provided personally identifiable information to us. Note that once you submit personally identifiable information, some of it may be contained in or linked to a cookie (such as IP address, phone number, email address, zip code, etc.). The only time that we receive such personally identifiable information is when you volunteer it by submitting it to us.
The financial information we collect is used to check the qualifications of our prospective customers and bill for products and services ordered. If you apply for financing through our online system, we may collect personal information such as your name, address, driver’s license number and state, social security number and other credit information. This information goes into a secure database and is used to provide the service you requested and as disclosed below. The collection, use and storage of your financial information for credit checks, for arranging credit and loans or for purchasing products and services may be subject to additional privacy policies and if so, you will be notified of them at the time of any such collection, use or storage of your financial information as required by law. Our online surveys may ask visitors for contact information (like an email address or phone number) which they may voluntarily provide. We also may run contests on our Site in which we ask visitors for similar contact information in order to participate. We use contact information from our surveys and contests to send information about products and services to these participating visitors.
Our Use Restrictions on Your Personally Identifiable Information
Kia of Portland does not sell, rent, or share personally identifiable information to or with any third party not affiliated with or owned by Kia of Portland except service providers who may assist us in such areas as our promotions, credit checks, data storage and order processing (See Agents and Vendors below). Kia of Portland will never give or sell your personally identifiable information to unaffiliated third parties to be used for the purposes of sending you unsolicited commercial offers (such as spam).
