Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, business name, physical address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.

DriveHQ may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.

  • When you register we ask for information such as your name, email address, birth date, gender, zip code, occupation, industry, and personal interests. If you choose not to provide the information, certain features will be restricted.

(b) Children
  • DriveHQ.com website is clean and safe. Our service is designed for businesses and high-end users. We don't block children as our site does not contain contents that may be inappropriate for children; we also believe children are unlikely to be interested in or visit our website. For children under age 13, we recommend that he or she has a parent or guardian create a Family Account and monitor the account. Parents / guardians should notify DriveHQ of any abnormal activities.

  • If DriveHQ has been advised or notified that an account belongs to a child under age 13, DriveHQ will not contact the child about special offers or for marketing purposes. DriveHQ does not ask a child under age 13 for more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in a given activity or promotion.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

  • DriveHQ does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies except to provide products or services you've requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:

    • We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with DriveHQ under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use your personal information to help DriveHQ communicate with you about offers from DriveHQ and our marketing partners. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share the information.

    • We have a parent's permission to share the information if the user is a child under age 13. Parents have the option of allowing DriveHQ to collect and use their child's information without consenting to DriveHQ sharing of the information with people and companies who may use the information for their own purposes;

    • We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims;

    • We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of DriveHQ's terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

    • We transfer information about you if DriveHQ is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, DriveHQ will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

  • DriveHQ may display targeted advertisements based on personal information. Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click on targeted ads meet the targeting criteria - for example, women ages 18-24 from a particular geographic area.

    • DriveHQ will not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.

    • DriveHQ advertisers include financial service providers (such as banks, insurance agents, stock brokers and mortgage lenders) and non-financial companies (such as stores, airlines, and software companies).

Cookies
