3. Normal Website Usage and Cookies

We or our third-party partners may use cookies, web beacons or other technologies to collect and store information about your visit and use of our online services.

We may also use cookies and other online tracking technology such as clear GIFs. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual's computer or device for record keeping purposes so that we can track Website, and user activity. The use of cookies is an industry standard and you will find them at most websites. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, clear GIFs are typically one pixel, transparent images on a webpage, email or other messages, used to help recognize users, determine traffic patterns, measure Site engagement, and to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications.

5. Disclosure of Information

Please see the United Auto Credit Privacy Notice for information on how Personal Information may be shared and how you may be able to limit certain types of sharing.

6. Social Media Features

United Auto Credit® has official pages on social media platforms including, but not limited to, Facebook® and LinkedIn. Any content you post on official United Auto Credit® managed social media pages, such as pictures, information, opinions, or any Personal Information that you make available to other participants on these social platforms is subject to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policies of those respective platforms. In addition, when you interact with us on social media platforms, we may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our Sites, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly.

7. Do Not Track

Some internet browsers offer a "do not track" feature. When enabled, your browser sends a signal to the sites you visit directing the sites not to track your activity. There is no common understanding of how to respond to these signals. Therefore, currently our Website does not respond to "do not track" signals. If you do not wish to be tracked, disabling or deleting cookies may limit some forms of tracking. Disabling or deleting cookies may affect your user experience on our Website including preventing the usage of certain features or functions.

9. Changes to Our Online Privacy Policy

As permitted by law, we may change this Online Privacy Policy by posting a revised version of the policy to the Website. If the changes are material, we will provide notice of the changes on the Website prior to the changes becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review the Website for information on our privacy practices related to the Website.

10. Children's Privacy

Our Sites are not directed to individuals under the age of thirteen (13) nor do we market our products or services to such children. We do not knowingly collect any data from children. Our products and services are not available to anyone who is not of legal age to enter into an enforceable contract.
