Privacy Policy

How We Protect Your Privacy

We at Vintage Driving Machines are committed to safeguarding your privacy online, and have designed our business practices to safeguard your privacy. Our privacy policy applies to the minimal information of yours that we collect and receive; it does not apply to businesses that we do not own or control (whose links may be present on our site) or to persons we do not employ. We will never sell your information or release your personally-identifiable data without your permission. Once you give us your personal information, you are no longer anonymous to us. If you choose to provide us with personal information, you consent to the transfer to, and storage of that information on, our servers located in the United States. Of course, you can visit without revealing who you are or providing any personal information.

Our site contains links to third-party sites. If you visit any other Web site through a link on our site, please consult the privacy policy of the Web site you are visiting. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other Web sites you may visit.

Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated as you use our services. By using this site, you agree to the terms of this privacy policy.

What Happens When You Browse Through Our Site

If you browse through our Web site without entering any personal data, we will gather and store certain information concerning your visit. That information will not identify you personally and cannot be linked back to you unless you decide at some point to identify yourself. If you are only browsing, we collect the following information: IP address, the type of browser and operating system used to access our site, the date and time you accessed our site, the pages you visited, and if you linked to our Web site from another Web site, the address of that Web site as well as additional information related to your visit. We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site.

How We Use Cookies

To help us tailor our Web site to the needs and interests of our visitors, we keep track of the pages you visit by placing a cookie, a small entry in text file, on your hard drive. The cookie contains an ID number that allows us to track the pages you visit. We aggregate the data with data gathered from other visitors to track overall traffic patterns. We use that information to improve our site by making it more responsive to the needs and desires of our users. We also use cookies to make sure you do not see the same advertisement repeatedly during a single visit to our site and to maintain your signed-in status. Cookies do not reveal personally identifying information.

Most cookies are "session cookies," meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session. The only information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. Cookies cannot read unrelated data on your hard drive and do not harm your computer. Our advertisers and third parties that provide products and/or services through our site may also assign their own cookies, a process we cannot control. The "help" function on most Web browsers contains information showing how to set your browser to notify you before accepting a cookie or to disable cookies entirely. However, if you do not accept cookies, you will not be able to take advantage of various features on our site that are available to other visitors.

To help us keep track of the pages visited by our viewers, and to track how users respond to advertisements we place for third-party Web sites, we may place a small file, called a Web beacon, on some of our pages and listings. When used with cookies, Web beacons allow us (or our advertisers) to track the number of visitors who view particular pages and listings to fine tune the advertising messages delivered to users of our site.

We do not, however, share, sell, trade or rent your personal information to third parties for unknown reasons.
