Carland Motors respects the privacy of visitors to our website. Please read this Privacy Statement carefully so that you understand what information we collect through our website and what we do with that information. This Privacy Statement applies only to information collected online through the www.carland.parts website and does not describe the ways in which we may collect or use information obtained offline or through any means other than our website.
Basically, www.carland.parts does not publish or open your personal information to the public. However, www.carland.parts may use your private information such as your name or email address for events or promotions in which you might be interested.
- 1. THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
- Any body can browse our website without telling us who they are or revealing any personal information about themselves. Once they give us their personal information, they are not anonymous to us anymore. If they choose to provide us with their personal information, they consent to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers which is located in Seoul, South Korea.
The information we gather falls into two categories:
(1) Information supplied by visitors to the site when they list a car for sale, perform a search, enter a sweepstakes or other promotional contest, or inquire about an item listed for sale or about another product or service offered through our website.
(2) Tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our website. Third-party providers featured on or linked to by our website, such as vendors of products and services offered through our site, may be gathering information, as well, through processes we don't control.
- Searches and Listings
- To make use of certain features on our site, visitors need to provide limited information about themselves and their interests so that we can tailor the information we provide to their needs. For example, to help you find the item you want, we need to know what kind of item you're searching for. We will get this kind of information when you perform a search. If you find a listing that interests you and choose to send the seller an email through our website, we'll share with the seller the contact information you supply through our online "Send Request This Seller" form.
- Online Surveys
- From time to time, we survey our users to measure their satisfaction with our site and other sites and to help us learn more about our audience and how they interact with our site. Third-party research firms will conduct these surveys on our behalf. We use the survey results to help us improve the services we offer to you. Except in the circumstances described below in the "Other Disclosures" section of this policy, we will not share, without your consent, any personally-identifying information you submit in response to an www.carland.parts survey with any company other than the research firm conducting the survey. We will, however, take the information you provide and aggregate it on an anonymous basis with data collected from other survey participants. We may use and disclose that pool of anonymous information as we see fit, without identifying you personally.

- Information we gather on our website is stored within www.carland.parts-controlled databases (or databases hosted on our behalf) on servers maintained in protected environments. Also, our servers are located in Seoul, South Korea. www.carland.parts treats every data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools(encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect users' personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure.

We cannot guarantee the security of our servers or databases, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. And, of course, any information you include in an item listing is available to anyone with Internet access.
