Thank you for visiting our website. Whether you are a current customer or a future customer, we take our responsibility to protect your private information seriously. We are committed to safeguarding your personal information from any unnecessary disclosure.

By providing you this written Privacy Policy it is our intention to provide you with the opportunity to understand how we keep your personal information secure while using it to serve you and provide you with the best experience we can. This notice is being made pursuant to the Federal Privacy Law and its application is limited to this website address.

Your personal information is being collected in order to help us serve you either directly through our employees or through our vendors, such as lenders. This notice of our Privacy Policy is designed to address the following:

  5. Other general information we may obtain about you such as demographic information, which is not assembled for purposes of determining your eligibility for credit, insurance, employment or other products or services.

Who Has Access To Your Information?

In addition to employees who may have the need to know your personal information, such as individuals helping you to receive credit or taking your information to repair your vehicle, we may also provide your information to third parties. These third parties include financial service providers such as leasing companies, lenders, insurance companies, and payment processing companies, and non-financial companies such as automotive repair facilities, website hosts and data processing companies. By sharing your information we are able to provide you with a wider range of products and services and operate our business more effectively and efficiently in order to provide you with the best service possible.

We may disclose your personal information to credit bureaus and similar organizations and when permitted by law. This may include a disclosure in connection with a subpoena or similar legal process, a fraud investigation, recording documents with the Department of Motor Vehicles or other public agency, an audit or examination by a third party retained by us or by a regulatory agency, or the sale or assignment of your account to a financial institution. We may disclose your personal information to companies that work with use to provide services or functions on our behalf, such as website providers, marketing companies, banks, finance companies, financing divisions of manufacturers, manufacturers, data processing companies, and other organizations such as nonprofit organizations that might provide educational, training or certification services to businesses such as ours. These companies act on our behalf and are required by law and by our policy to be contractually obligated to keep personal information provided to them confidential and to use it only to provide the specific service they are being asked to provide.

If the dealership is sold, your personal information will be identified as an asset of the dealership and will be sold and transferred to the new owner.

What Options Do You Have As To Whether Your Information Is Collected?

By providing this information to us, you are agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy, including authorizing the use of your personal information. If you do not want us to use your personal information, do not provide any personal information through this website. We cannot collect any personal information from you if it is not given to us by you. By using our website to provide personal information, you are consenting to our use of that information for the reasons set forth herein.

If you wish to change, update or remove your personal information, you may do so by contacting us in writing stating your wishes.

How Is Your Personal Information Stored?

If we collect your personal information for one of the purposes described herein, we may store such information in our secure servers or in one or more of our secure databases. If you do not want us to use and store your information in accordance with this policy, please do not submit any personal information to us through this website. Access to your personal information is limited to a need to know basis.

No data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you understand that any information you transfer to us is done at your own risk. We have, however, provided firewalls to discourage unauthorized access via the Internet.

  1. To deliver services to you that you have requested
  2. To process your request for employment
  3. To complete any other transaction or service requested by you
  4. To market products and services we provide to you
  5. To provide information to the manufacturer
  6. To contact you in response to an inquiry from you.

We Collect Non-Personal Information.

We also collected non-personal information about your visit to our website. The website automatically recognizes and stores information about the type of browser you use, your IP address, your domain name and any referring sites. This information is often called "cookies" and is collected via a computer code sent to your computer. The cookies will not expire unless you manually delete them or set your browser to reject them. If you do not accept the cookies, you may have difficulty navigating our website.

Browser-Based Do Not Track.

Some browsers incorporate a "Do Not Track" (DNT) feature that, when turned on, signals to websites and online services that you do not want to be tracked. Currently, there is no accepted standard for responding to a DNT signal. As such, we do not respond to DNT signals on the website or on websites where we provide advertisements, consents, content or other services.

Our Website collects two different types of information through our website: anonymous information and personally identifiable information.

Anonymous Information.

We collect and store anonymous, aggregate information (such as internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, search engines, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks) 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, in which case some otherwise anonymous information may be connected to your website activity and personal account. Otherwise, the anonymous information is only used in the aggregate to analyze trends, administer the website, diagnose any problems, track a visitor’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We may provide this anonymous information in aggregate form to other parties or use it for our own insight or marketing purposes. Our ability to use this information is not restricted in any way.

We also use “cookies” and “image tags” to collect certain usage information from all customers and visitors to our website. A “cookie” is a small text file that a website can place on your computer’s hard drive or on your mobile device’s memory in order to collect information about your activities on our website. An “image tag,” also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, works together with cookies and is a small image file that may be located in various areas of our website. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you have the option to change your browser setting to decline them.

Accepting cookies in no way gives us access to your computer or any personal information about you, since cookies are not used to identify anonymous website visitors. Our cookies enable you to proceed smoothly through our website and know whether you’ve used it before, so as to eliminate some steps that apply to new visitors. Cookies also give us usage data like how often you visit, where you go on our website, and what you do while here.

Similarly, a cookie may be placed by our third-party advertising companies. These companies may use aggregated statistics about your use of our website and third-party media in order to provide you with advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. The information they collect does not include your personal information.

The third-party advertising companies may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of ads. Any such information is anonymous. They may use this anonymous information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. No personal information about you is collected during this process. The information is anonymous and does not link online actions to an identifiable person.

Further, with your permission, we may collect information about your use or interaction with our website or about the devices you use to connect or interact with our website by automated means, including tracking technologies. As discussed above, these tracking technologies may include “cookies,” which are small lines of text/data that are written onto your device by a website. Most browsers allow you to block and delete cookies. However, if you do that, the website may not work properly. Selma Honda and suppliers acting on our behalf may use cookies, pixel tags, beacons, web beacons, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi monitoring and other technologies to operate the website and to provide services. With your consent, we may also use technologies to capture your demographic information and engagement with us in order to present you with a more personalized experience.

With respect to unrelated, third party web sites, such as third party online retailers, advertisers, or unrelated sites that we may happen to link to, or web sites that link to our website, those third parties may collect personal information directly from you. The information policies and practices of these unrelated parties are not covered by this privacy policy. We do not control the privacy policies of third parties even if we may provide hyperlinks or other access to their web sites. We are not responsible or liable for their independent policies and practices. Please review their privacy policies and practices. It is your responsibility to review them and decide if you are satisfied with their protections.

Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, so we are not currently set up to respond to those signals.

Personally Identifiable Information.

We require the submission of certain personally identifiable information when you use some services available on our website. For example, your use of your user name and password allows us to identify you as our customer who is seeking information in connection with our services. Our website uses a variety of contact forms and tracking phone numbers for visitors to request information, products, and services. We collect a visitor’s contact information (like his or her email address or phone number) and in some cases, demographic information (like his or her zip code). In limited circumstances, such as when a visitor fills out an online credit application, we collect unique identifiers (like a social security number), and/or financial information (like age, income level, bank account or credit card numbers). We use this information to get in touch with our prospective customers about their requests, and to send them additional information about our products and services.

Note that once you have created an order or otherwise voluntarily provided personally identifiable information to us, we may use cookies to help identify you. Personally identifiable information received from you (such as IP address, phone number, email address, zip code, etc.) may be contained in or linked to a cookie. The only time that we receive such personally identifiable information is when you volunteer it by submitting it to us.

We may use cookies with personally identifiable information so that our website can remember you, enhance your online visit with us, and provide you with the information you’re most likely to need. For instance, cookies allow our website to remind you of your past vehicle search interests and website activity and to suggest similar products and services. In some cases, cookies may improve your shopping experience and we use information gained through cookies to track your website activity and to deliver you content specific information

Any 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 or wish to purchase or lease a car 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 solely to provide the service you requested. 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 website 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.
