AutoAp, Inc. (“AutoAp” or “Company” or “We”) values the privacy of our users and is committed to protecting it through our compliance with this Privacy and Security Policy. This Privacy and Security Policy describes the Company’s policies and procedures on the collection, use, disclosure, and safeguarding of the information we may collect from you or that you may provide and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting and disclosing that information when you visit Your use of AutoAp’s Website or AutoAp’s mobile device applications (collectively, “Solutions”), or use of any of the associated services offered by AutoAp (collectively, “Company Services”). This policy does not apply to any information collected by us offline or through any other means, including on any other website operated by any third party; or by any third party, including through any application or content (including advertising), that may link to or be accessible from or on the Solutions or Company Services. Please read this Privacy and Security Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it.

Account Registration and Profile Information: For the best user experience, you may be asked to provide certain personally identifiable information including but not limited to your name, email address, and zip code, as well as your vehicle information (i.e., pictures, year, make, model, and style), when you create an account and register to use the Solutions and Company Services. You have the option of providing more or less information, depending on whether you maintain an “anonymous” account, create an account, or register an account. Each successive account level affords you more features and improves the buying / selling match process. We not display your mobile number or email address, but other parties may use these modes of contact to communicate with you, to facilitate buyer/seller matching. Account information is password-protected, so please keep your password safe. The Company does not maintain records of your password, but will provide a method for you to change it, if you lose it.
User Communications: There are both public and private means of communication provided on the Solutions and through Company Services and other social media platforms. You are in control of how and which social platforms you post to, including none. When you post notices to public forums or notice boards, those notices are, in fact, public, and others may retain those communications in order to improve their services. We will keep track of posting statistics but not the details of your postings. Even after “deletion”, forum postings and other public items may be archived elsewhere. The Company has no control over third parties. User accounts with third party providers shall be subject to such third party providers’ then-current terms of use and privacy policies (“Third Party Policies”) and the Company shall not be responsible for any violation by any third party of the Third Party Policies. Although we do everything we can to ensure continuous service, should there be a system failure, data will be restored to the last available backup, which may cause deleted items to reappear. If you engage in user to user communications via private means of communication, we may retain those communications. For example, we may retain private messaging as part of our systems’ back-up mechanisms.
