4. Information Collection and Use
When you visit this site we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. For purposes of this Privacy Statement, “personally identifiable information” is information that identifies you as an individual, for example your name, street address, telephone number, e-mail address and credit card number.
AFD is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. AFD collects information through this site from our prospective and existing clients at several different points on our web site. We use their contact information to send information about our company and to service existing customers.
Users may opt-out of receiving future communications from us; see the choice/opt-out section below. Contact and Credit Card information that is collected is used for verifying your name, address and other information, as well as to collect payment from you for your purchasing of product(s).
Information about your computer hardware and software may be collected by AFD for traffic analysis purposes. This information includes: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is not tied to your personally identifiable information. This information is used by AFD to maintain and improve the quality of the service and to generate statistics regarding use of the AFD’s website.
We use third party services to collect credit card account information and to process payments for Products. These third party service providers are not permitted to use your information for any secondary purposes.
5. Online Tracking Information
AFD does not track customer browser activity on its own. However, when you visit this site, third parties unrelated to AFD, such as third-party advertising partners and analytics providers contracted to your Internet Service Provider, may collect information about your online activity over time and across websites. This information may include identifiers that may permit those parties to serve tailored ads to your device, a process known as “behavioral advertising”.
- You can prevent companies from showing you targeted ads by submitting opt-outs to those service providers. Opting-out will only prevent targeted ads so you may continue to see generic (non-targeted ads) from these companies after you opt-out.
- You may opt-out of behaviorally targeted ads anytime by deleting your browser’s cookies.
Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret web browser-based “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signals other than cookies, Advanced Fuel Dynamics does not currently respond to undefined “DNT” signals to its US websites.
Most browsers can be configured not to accept cookies, however, this may prevent you from having access to some functions or services on our sites.
6. Methods to Collect Information and Interest-Based/Online Behavioral Advertising
A “cookie” is a small text file that helps us in many ways to make your visit to our website more enjoyable and meaningful to you. For example, cookies avoid you having to log in every time you come back to one of our websites. They also allow us to tailor a website or advertisement to better match your interests and preferences. There are a couple different types of cookies.
A “session” cookie is stored only in your computer’s working memory (RAM) and only lasts for your browsing session. When you close all your browser’s windows, or when you shut down your computer, the session cookie disappears forever.
A “persistent” cookie is stored on your computer’s hard drive until a specified date, which could be tomorrow, next week, or 10 years from now. Persistent cookies stay on your computer until either a) they expire, b) they are overwritten with newer cookies, or c) you manually remove them. Most browsers can be configured not to accept cookies, however, this may prevent you from having access to some site functions or features.
This site may use a third party to activate and/or deliver a service, or deliver site functionality such as fulfilling your request to purchase a product or service, including items from our online store. In performing this function the third party may place a persistent cookie on your computer or have to gather personal information from you in order to activate and deliver the service, or facilitate the processing of your purchase.
