This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) explains how personal information about you is collected, used and disclosed by autoGraph Inc. (“autoGraph”) when you use any website, mobile website, web browser plug-in or applications of autoGraph that links to this Policy (collectively the “Sites”).

We reserve the right to change the provisions of this Policy at any time. We will alert you that changes have been made by updating the “Last Revised” date at the top of the Policy. We encourage you to review this Policy from time to time to make sure that you understand how any personal information you provide will be used and shared.

 

What is Personal Information?

As used herein, the term “personal information” means at least information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number, e-mail address or credit card number) or information about an individual that is directly linked to personally identifiable information. Personal information does not include “aggregate” information, which is data we collect about the use of the autoGraph Sites or about a group or category of services or users, from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed. This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection, use and disclosure of aggregate information.

What information do we collect?
