Privacy Policy

PAM’s Auto (also referred to herein using “we,” “our,” and “us”) respects your privacy, and we assure you that we take the protection of your personal information very seriously. We therefor provide this Privacy Policy to disclose our information collection, utilization, and sharing practices for this Site. This Privacy Policy applies to any website or mobile application that includes, displays, attaches, references, or links to this Privacy Policy (each the “Site”). Unless explicitly provided herein, this Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that PAM’S Auto does not own or control, or to people that PAM’S Auto Companies do not employ or manage. If you do not agree to these terms, do not access the PAM’S Auto Site or other related services. The information we receive from you depends on what you do when you visit this Site. Except as described in this policy, we do not sell, rent, share or disclose your personally identifiable information to or with any other organizations.

TYPE AND USES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU:

Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) – Generally, you can visit our Site without revealing any personal information about yourself. At times, though, we or vendors operating on our behalf may need information about you, such as when you purchase goods or services from us or request information from us. Unless otherwise indicated, the information we request is optional, but you may not be able to use parts of our Site without providing such information. We may gather certain personal information from you to help us better serve you through transactions and promotions, as well as to respond to inquiries, requests for information, and opportunities including employment applications. We only collect personally identifiable information when you choose to reveal it to us.

Our Site collects information from our web forms that may be displayed on our Site or in conjunction with checkouts for purchases of goods, including without limitation when you request or submit information or purchase goods, and when you apply for employment. At these places, we may ask you to give us contact information (like name, company name, title, email address, phone number, gender, date of birth, passwords and login credentials for the Site, credit card or other payment information and address, along with answers to questions topical to the web form and an ability to state additional information). Information related to your purchase of goods may be collected by third party vendors operating for the benefit of PAM’S Auto by processing your transactional payment information and for shipment of your purchases. These third party vendors may have additional privacy policies and information collection, use, and sharing disclosures that you should review independently from this privacy policy.

When you email a question to one of our team members, we receive your email address and any other information you choose to include in your email. If you use other web forms to submit inquiries or sign up for mailing lists or other information, we will collect the information you submit. If we receive similar questions from other users, we may post the most frequently asked questions on our site under a “Q & A” or similar section. The question we post may be similar to, or the same as, the question you submitted, but we will not identify you (or anyone else) as the questioner.

The primary purpose of many web forms is to allow you to request information, products, and services from us, as well as to provide such products and services, and to provide you with employment information and opportunities. We use the information you provide to process your requests and otherwise provide the products and services you request, as well as to provide support for those products and services including without limitation warranty support. We may use your PII to send you information and advertising about our organization and our products and services including without limitation to provide you with products and services you have expressed interest in, requested, and/or purchased. We reserve the right, but not the obligation, to contact you regarding changes to this Privacy Policy and other matters relevant to the Site.

When you submit an inquiry about a job through the Site, we may ask for information such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, gender, date of birth, career selection or job interest, work experience, and other information related to employment opportunities including an option to upload your resume. We may use third parties to collect and process such employment related information. We may use the information you provide to match your experience and preferences with the job openings we have, and someone from PAM’s Auto may contact you about a possible employment opportunity. Please note that by submitting your information regarding employment opportunities with the PAM’s Auto, you authorize us to transmit and store your information in our recruitment database.

INFORMATION AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED:
