II. WHAT DO WE DO WITH COLLECTED INFORMATION?
III. HOW DO WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Sharing Within the AVTech Media Americas Corporate Family. We may share your personal information with any parent company, subsidiary, or affiliate in the AVTech Media Americas corporate family. All entities within the AVTech Media Americas corporate family may have access to your personal information as well as anonymous, aggregate demographic data.
AVTech Media Americas’s Service Providers. AVTech Media Americas may decide to share your personal information with companies that work on behalf of or with AVTech Media Americas. These companies may use your personal information to inform you about AVTech Media Americas’ products and services, to provide you with information about other exciting products and services, or otherwise to assist AVTech Media Americas in serving its customers, understanding its consumer market, or devising effective marketing strategies to reach more consumers.
Lead Purchasers. AVTech Media Americas may decide to share your personal information with third parties who purchase leads from AVTech Media Americas, such as automotive dealers and banks. Some of our websites require users to disclose personal information as a condition of receiving quotes or offers from fulfillment partners (as described more fully below), such as automotive dealers or banks, who can provide services or products to users that AVTech Media Americas does not directly provide. In these instances, your personal information will be provided to third parties who compensate AVTech Media Americas for leads delivered to such third parties.
Participating Vendors. Some of our sites offer opportunities to make purchases online from special participating vendors. On sites with online purchase opportunities for products and merchandise, we will also give participating vendors the order information and authorization for the merchant bank. Any time you order from a participating vendor, that vendor will automatically have all the information related to the order. Participating vendors may use that information to advise you directly of other products and offerings that they provide.
Credit Card Companies; Third Party Payment Services; Third Party Promotional Sites. As in any transaction, your credit card company will have all relevant information about the name of the vendor, item(s) purchased, and date and total cost. AVTech Media Americas will not otherwise provide any personal data to your credit card company. In some cases, we use third party payment and transaction services to facilitate your transactions and process your orders. In such cases, we will share your personal information and credit card information with the third party payment services solely for the purpose of completing the transaction or processing your order. In some cases, we will share your personal information and credit card information with third parties who may offer you a gift or promotional offer as a result of your purchase or subscription to a AVTech Media Americas product or publication.
Fulfillment Partners. Some of our websites are intended to facilitate transactions between you and a third party. To do so, we collect and share additional personal information, like credit information, so such third parties can provide the product or service you request. As our fulfillment partners may keep and use your information whether or not you purchase their products or use their services, your personal information will be subject to their privacy policies.
Public Postings. You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose information, personal or otherwise, online in any community area (whether through AVTech Media Americas’ websites or any other service available online), that information can be collected and used by others. Accordingly, you should use caution when sharing any personal information with others in any community area (whether through AVTech Media Americas’ websites or any other service available online).
Changes in Corporate Structure. In developing our business, we might sell certain assets, or the company, or parts of it, may be sold, merged or otherwise transferred. In such transactions, user information, whether personally identifiable or otherwise, may be one of the transferred assets.
Additionally, we use third-party companies to collect non-personally identifiable information (e.g., the pages you visit, and which links you click, which ads you see and click on, and the categories of search terms you enter) when you visit one of our websites. Some of these third-party companies collect information when serving ads on our sites, while others collect information without showing ads on our sites. These companies may use the information outlined above (which does not include your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to our sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. These companies often use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.
V. HOW DO WE USE WEB BEACONS, WEB ANALYTICS, AND OTHER BEHAVIORAL MARKETING TECHNOLOGIES?
Some of our web pages, promotional e-mail messages, and/or newsletters may contain electronic images known as web beacons, which are also called single-pixel gifs. Web beacons are not used to access your personally identifiable information, but they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about the usage of our websites and to track the number of users who have opened and acted up our promotional e-mail messages. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides.

VIII. SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use reasonable physical, technical, and administrative measures to safeguard information in our possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure, and modification. For example, passwords and other sensitive information are encrypted in transit. We also take steps to ensure that only those AVTech Media Americas employees, agents, and contractors who have a legitimate business reason to obtain access to sensitive information from or about you are granted access.
When you enter payment information (such as credit card information on our order forms), we encrypt that information using secure industry standard protocols for billing transmission in order to help protect the financial information you send us.
Despite these efforts, please note that there is always a possibility that a breach in data transmission or storage may occur. We want you to feel confident in our security when using the AVTech Media Americas websites, but we cannot guarantee the security of any information from or about you 100% of the time. Please refer to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s website for information on how to protect yourself from identity theft.
