We use your email address and other contact information you provide us to confirm your order, to communicate with you in case of an order problem, and depending on the Service, to provide it. You may later access this contact information, update it, modify it and delete any inaccuracies by accessing your account through the User Profile or other link on the user main page. We may disclose your personal information (such as name, product or vehicle information, service request, and contact information) to our staff and to independent service providers involved in the provision of your Service. We also use this information to analyze, support, facilitate and improve your use of the website and our Services, to communicate with you, for internal purposes and to comply with any requirements of law. We do not sell and will not divulge your personally identifiable information to third parties other than as specified in this Privacy Policy without your permission unless we are legally obliged to do so (for example, if required to do so by court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime).

The contents of your online communications, as well as other information about you as a user of our Services, may be accessed and disclosed under the following circumstances: in response to lawful governmental requests or legal process (for example, a court order, search warrant or subpoena), in other circumstances in which we have a good faith belief that a crime has been or is being committed by a user of our Services or that an emergency exists that poses a threat to the safety of you or another person, when necessary to protect our rights or property, or for us to render the Service you have requested.
We may use independent service providers in the provision of our Services to you. Their access to and use of information is limited to these purposes.

In the event that ownership of our company were to change as a result of a merger, acquisition, or transfer to another company, your information may be transferred.
