4. Does carport.com disclose user information to third parties? Except as otherwise noted in this policy, carport.com only discloses user information in aggregate form to marketing partners. For example, we might tell a marketing partner how many users visited carport.com over a period of time, but we will never tell them who it was that saw or clicked on their offer, unless that user has given us permission to do so.
Carport.com believes that consumers should be able to control the use of their data. We will not share personally identifiable information with marketing partners if you follow the simple unsubscribe procedure. If an opt-out is not submitted, we will notify users of exciting offers of interest from carport.com and our marketing partners. We may also share your name, land address and e-mail address with marketing partners so that they can send you offers directly for products and services that may be of interest to you. The personal information our users provide to us may be combined with other personally identifiable information (such as demographic information and past purchase information) available from our records and other sources. We use a third party to verify your address, in order to process your order prior to shipping. This allows us and our marketing partners , with permission, to present our users with offers and information geared towards their interests. We require each permission based e-mail our partners send to include a description of a simple opt-out process that will enable you to stop receiving promotional e-mail from them in the future. We will only deal with marketing partners who offer products or services that we believe may be of interest to our users. Nevertheless, carport.com is not and cannot be responsible for the activities or privacy policies of these third parties. We may share our unsubscribe list with select marketing partners for the sole purpose of insuring that individuals on this list do not receive electronic commercial mail messages containing Elephant advertisements that may be sent by such partners.
We do not rent, license, or sell personal data to third parties unless permission is granted through user submission at carport.com. In the event of a merger, acquisition, or change of control of carport.com, customer data would be considered a business asset and would be transferred. We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We may also disclose personal information as required by law or to protect the safety and security of our users.
These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
