INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

  1. BABT may collect information from you at several different points and in different ways on this Site. BABT will ask you for your permission before BABT collects any information that personally identifies you or allows BABT to contact you. BABT's primary goal in collecting personal information from you is to provide you with an efficient, meaningful and customized experience. For example, BABT may use your personal information to:

    • make this Site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once.
    • help you quickly find information and services.
    • help BABT create content on this Site that is most relevant to you.
    • alert you to updated information and services offered by BABT.

    • Registration. To use this Site you may in the future be required to first complete an online registration form. During registration you may be prompted to provide to BABT certain personal information, including, but not limited to, your name, address, phone number and e-mail address.
    • Cookies. BABT uses cookies on this Site. "Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by a user's Internet browser on a user's computer hard drive. BABT does not link cookies to any personally identifiable information.
    • Log Files. The Site server automatically recognizes the Internet URL from which you access this Site. BABT may also log your Internet protocol ("IP") address for system administration and troubleshooting purposes. An IP address indicates the location of your computer on the Internet. BABT does not link an IP address to any personally identifiable information.
  2. Information Use and Disclosure.

    • Internal Use. BABT may identify you in connection with your use of certain aspects of this Site. For example, BABT may identify you by vehicle or tire ownership to provide you with information on related products and/or promotions. BABT may internally use your personal information (including sharing such information among BABT's affiliates for internal use only) to improve BABT's marketing and promotional efforts, to improve the Site's content and/or layout, and to determine general marketplace information about visitors to this Site.
    • External Use. BABT does not sell, rent, license or otherwise disclose your specific personal information to any third parties. BABT may, however, be required to disclose your personal information pursuant to a valid court or government order, or pursuant to certain corporate transactions, such as a merger, acquisition or reorganization.

DATA SECURITY

This Site incorporates various physical, electronic and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information. Access to your personal information is restricted. Only employees who need access to your personal information to perform a specific job are granted access to your personal information. Finally, the servers where BABT stores your personal information are kept in a secure environment protected by a firewall.

WHILE BABT HAS TAKEN EVERY COMMERCIALLY REASONABLE PRECAUTION TO SAFEGUARD YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION, BABT CANNOT GUARANTEE COMPLETE SECURITY BECAUSE COMPLETE SECURITY DOES NOT PRESENTLY EXIST ON THE INTERNET.
