Except as otherwise herein, the personal information collected from you on this Site will not be shared with any third-parties, although HP Tuners reserves the right to share such information with its affiliates and subsidiaries without your permission. HP Tuners sometimes hires other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as sending newsletters, providing customer service, and performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies with the information that they need to provide us with such services, and we take reasonable efforts to prohibit them from using that information for any other purpose.

HP Tuners reserves the right to disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) comply with legal process served on HP Tuners or the Site; (b) to respond to requests from public and government authorities, including public and government authorities outside your country of residence; (c) to enforce our Terms of Use; (d) to protect our operations or those of any of our affiliates; (e) to protect our rights, privacy, safety, or property, and/or that of our affiliates, you, or others; and (f) to allow us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.

If we are involved in a merger, reorganization, joint venture, assignment, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your information may be transferred as part of that transaction.

We use aggregate information, which does not identify individuals, to monitor customer traffic patterns to the Site and particular pages, as well as Site usage, in order to help us improve the design and layout of the content. In addition, we may use and disclose information that is not in personally identifiable form (such as anonymized, masked or de-identified information) for any purpose. HP Tuners uses this information to maintain the quality of its service and to provide general statistics about Site visitors. If we combine information that is not in personally identifiable form with information that is (such as combining your name with your geographical location), we will treat the combined information as personal information as long as it is combined.

Storage and Transfer of Personal Information

3. INFORMATION SECURITY

We use organizational, technical, and administrative measures designed to protect personal information under our control.  Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the contact information below.

4. USE OF COOKIES

This Site uses cookies to assist you with making your online experience more individualized. A cookie is a text file that is placed on the hard disk of your computer by a web page server. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies are used for convenience and to save you time when you next visit this Site. We and our service providers use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site, for security purposes, to facilitate navigation, to display information more effectively, for the Site’s technical administration, to increase the Site’s functionality and user-friendliness, and to verify users have the authorization needed for the Service to process their requests.  In addition, we use cookies to gather statistical information about Site usage in order to continually improve its design and functionality, understand how individuals use it, and to assist us with resolving questions regarding it. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to set your computer to accept cookies from this Site, you may also choose to be logged into the Site automatically. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of this Site or the other websites that you visit and you may experience technical problems receiving current information from such cookie-disabled websites. We also collect some information (ourselves or using third party services) using logging and cookies, such as IP address, which can sometimes be correlated with personal information.

Google Analytics

We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this Site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this Site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this Site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this Site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this Site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this Site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this Site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy . You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this Site by disabling cookies on your browser.

Do Not Track

Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature that signals to digital devices that a visitor does not want to have his/her online activity tracked. Because not all web browsers offer DNT options and DNT signals are not yet uniform, we and many other website operators do not respond to DNT signals.

5. USE OF WEB BEACONS

The Site’s pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons – also referred to as single-pixel gifs – that permit HP Tuners to count users who have visited those pages and for other related statistics – (e.g., recording the popularity of certain content and verifying system and server integrity). Web beacons are not used to access your personal information on the Site; they are solely used to compile aggregated statistics concerning the use of the Site. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, the time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides.

6. COMMUNITIES AND FORUMS OFFERED ON THIS WEBSITE

Any personally identifiable information, personally sensitive data, or other content that you disclose through the public online forums hosted on this Site, may be collected and used by others. We recommend caution when giving out personal information to others in these public online forums.

While this Policy applies to personal information generally, the local laws, rules and regulations of jurisdictions that are applicable to HP Tuners (“Local Laws”) may require standards which are stricter than this Policy and, in such event, HP Tuners will comply with applicable Local Laws. Specific privacy policies may be adopted to address the specific privacy requirements of particular jurisdictions. All the information you provide may be transferred or accessed by entities around the world as described in this Policy. Your personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or service providers, and by using our Site or by providing consent to us (where required by law), you specifically acknowledge and agree to the transfer of information to countries outside of your country of residence, including to the United States, which may provide for different data protection rules, and a lower standard of required protection, than in your country. Irrespective of which country your personal data is transferred, we would only share your personal data under a ‘need to know’ basis.  In these circumstances we will, as required by applicable law, ensure that your privacy rights are adequately protected by organizational, technical, contractual and/or other lawful means.

10. THIRD PARTY SITES AND SERVICES

This Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information, or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any site or web property (including, without limitation, any application) that is available through this Site or to which this Site contains a link.  The availability of, or inclusion of a link to, any such site or property on this Site does not imply endorsement of it by us or by our affiliates.
