  1. Introduction

    We are committed to respecting your and the End Users' online privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of any Personal Information (as defined hereafter) you share with us.

    In order to access and use the Services, you may be required to register and create an account with AutoLeadStar (the "Account").

    If you are required to create an Account, you will be asked to provide us with your name, email address, a username, a password that you will use to access your Account or the Services, and other specified information.

    If you are provided with a username and password, it is your responsibility to remember and maintain the security and confidentiality of your username and password. You should not disclose your username and password to any other person.

    By voluntarily providing us with your Personal Information, e.g. in the framework of the registration process, or by sending us a comment, a request or a question, you are giving your consent to the collection, use and, as the case may be, distribution of your Personal Information by us, under the terms and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy and subject to applicable law. For the avoidance of doubt, we will not use your Personal Information, including your email address, for any purpose other than the provision of Services or as otherwise specified herein.

    All Personal Information provided by you, including your email address and other contact information, is owned by you and you may, at any time, request that we delete any or all Personal Information from our servers by contacting us at contact@autoleadstar.com. Please note that your Personal Information might be essential to the provision of Services and the deletion of any Personal Information may result in the termination of the provision of Services to you.

    We shall treat the Personal Information collected from End Users in the same manner as we treat your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

    Our website and Services are not directed toward children under 18 years of age and we will not knowingly collect personal information for any child under the age of 13.

  3. The Way We Use Personal Information

    We may use your Personal Information for several purposes: (1) to enable you to use the Services or certain features thereof; (2) to contact you and to respond to questions and comments you may send us; (3) to save you from re-entering the information when you access the Services; (4) to provide you with marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you (as further detailed below); (5) to detect and protect against error, fraud or other criminal activity; (6) to enforce our Terms of Use including carrying out security reviews to validate your identity, age, contact details and, if applicable, your financial information; and (7) in any other way as described to you at the time of collection of your Personal Information.

    In addition, we may combine your Personal Information and aggregate it with information collected from other users of the Services and the End Users, in order to better design the Services and its services, by analysing and evaluating the way the Services are being used. We may disclose such aggregated information as provided below.

We shall require that these persons agree to process such information in compliance with our Privacy Policy, and we shall use reasonable efforts to limit their use of such information and ensure that they use appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

    We may also employ third party service providers to perform some of the services related to the Services (such as hosting and maintenance services, payments clearance services etc.). Such third parties will have limited access to your Personal Information to the extent necessary to perform their tasks, and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose. We may also use your email address to send you updates, newsletters or news regarding our services or those of our partners whose offers may interest you. You may choose not to receive such emails by sending a single email with the subject "BLOCK" to contact@autoleadstar.com.

    Some of our Services pages utilise "cookies" and other tracking technologies to collect information and to tailor the Services to the needs and interests of our customers. A "cookie" is a small text file that is transferred from the Services' servers to the computer’s hard drive, and uniquely identifies the End User's browser. Cookies can only be read by the server that sent them, and they cannot read data from the hard drive.

    Tracking technologies (including cookies) may record information such as internet domain and host names; IP addresses; browser software and operating system types; clickstream patterns; and dates and times that internet services are accessed. Our use of cookies and other tracking technologies allows us to improve our Services and the collection of information.

    Please note that the End User may set most browsers to either notify when the End User receives a cookie or to block cookies. Further, the End User can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings.

    You should be aware that the Services use the services of third party suppliers for the provision of some of its services. To provide such services, these suppliers may also use cookies, for the reasons outlined above.

  6. Compliance with Laws and Law enforcement

    We may disclose any and all information, including Personal Information, if we are required to do so by any applicable law or regulation, or an order of a court or other governmental body having jurisdiction.

We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other websites, and encourage you to review the privacy policies of those linked websites before using them.

  8. Event of Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy

    In the event that AutoLeadStar is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right, subject to applicable law, to transfer or assign the Personal Information and any other information we have collected as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.

    In the event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganisation, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, the Personal Information and any other information may, subject to applicable law, be treated, transferred, or used by third parties.
