Your online privacy is of the utmost importance to us.
At Gardenstate Towing, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.
Because we gather certain information about our users, we feel you should fully understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that personal information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
Gardenstate Towing has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. The following discloses the information-gathering practices for this website.
In some cases, we require our website visitors to give us contact and personal information. This information is used only when replying to enquiries or when processing orders. Our site has security measures in place to protect against loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.
We are the sole owner of any personal information we collect. Furthermore, we will NOT sell, share or rent ANY of the information that visitors provide us with.
What Information Do We Collect?
We collect the following information from all visitors to our site:
- the name of the domain through which users access the Internet
- the date and time users access the site
- the web page that referred users to our page
We use this information to administer our website and to help diagnose and troubleshoot potential server malfunctions. We also record the individual (IP) addresses of the computers used to access our site in order to protect against fraud.
Use Of Collected Information
Gardenstate Towing uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience on our site, whether to provide interactive or personalised elements on the site or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in surveys, polls, message boards, and forums.
We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. Gardenstate Towing never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.
We use tracking information to determine which areas of our site users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall.
This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in our ‘Search’ field as one of many measures of what interests our users. But we don’t track which terms a particular user enters.
Gardenstate Towing creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers, sponsors and partners. This allows our advertisers to advertise more effectively and allows our users to receive advertisements that are pertinent to their needs.
Because we don’t track the usage patterns of individual users, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific user clicked their ad. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal processes or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
Sharing Of The Information
Gardenstate Towing uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our advertisers better understand our audience’s demographics. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable laws or valid legal processes or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
Information Gardenstate Towing Gathers And Tracks
Gardenstate Towing gathers two types of information about our users:
- Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters, and/or participate in our message boards or forums,
- Information gathered through aggregated tracking and derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our site. This information allows us to better tailor our content to our readers.
Under no circumstances does GardenstateTowing divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
Gardenstate Towing Gathers User Information In The Following Ways:
Gardenstate Towing may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
Gardenstate Towing tracks user traffic patterns throughout our site. We correlate this information with data about individual users. Gardenstate Towing breaks down these overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).
Gardenstate Towing sometimes tracks and catalogues the search terms that users enter in our ‘Search’ field, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our site users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Our advertising system delivers a one-time cookie to better track ad impressions and click rates.
We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
- Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters.
- Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users
The payment page of Gardenstate Towing is protected under a Secure Socket Layer(SSL) of 128-bit encryption. This is done to establish a secure connection between yourself and Gardenstate Towing whilst receiving your cardholder information over the internet.
Security Of Your Payment Information
The security of your personal information is very important to us, and we are committed to protecting the information that we collect. We have security measures in place at our facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that any credit card processor has collected from you through our website.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, any credit card processor we use cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk.
