USE OF COOKIES AND SESSION IDs

Hudson Valley Autoguide web sites use "cookies" and/or session IDs to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. A session ID is the same as a cookie except the text file is saved on our servers, not your computer. Neither Cookies nor session IDs can be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies and session IDs are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie and session ID to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies and session IDs is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. They tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, by not requiring you to re-enter your search after viewing each listing, it simplifies the process so you can easily use the Hudson Valley Autoguide features.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you search for a specific year, make and model and narrow the results to a specific zip code. The use of cookies and session IDs allows hudsonvalleyautoguide.com to remember and return to that search as you review the vehicles in the search results. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Hudson Valley Autoguide services or Web sites you visit.

This privacy policy applies to all Hudson Valley Autoguide websites and all dealer websites hosted by Hudson Valley Autoguide, as well as websites hosted on behalf of our partners, advertisers and clients, collectively known as Hudson Valley Autoguide “websites”.

SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Our intent is to provide privacy, integrity, and authentication in regards to our Internet communication. The security measures we have taken are intended to secure and encrypt your data, so that a third party cannot capture, read or access the information while it is in transit between your computer and our system.

Hudson Valley Autoguide secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Hudson Valley Autoguide secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Specifically, we use standard-based Internet protocols to safeguard the information you provide during the purchase, payment and most information submittal processes. We use a secure server implementing the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to interact with you when you provide personal information during the purchase and payment processes. These processes use 128 bit encryption. You can tell if you are using a Web browser that supports SSL if a "padlock" icon appears in the browser address bar on your screen. When you enter a secure page, the lock is "un-broken" or closed. This means that your communications are now secure, encrypted, and cannot be read by non-authorized sources. Another sign that you are in a secure transaction mode is a URL that begins with "https:". When you see any of these symbols on your browser, you know that your information is protected and you can interact with the website with confidence.

Hudson Valley Autoguide limits internal access to our servers databases and require that Hudson Valley Autoguide employees adhere to high standards of ethics and integrity in performing their jobs and conducting business. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers" information is protected.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

Hudson Valley Autoguide may update this policy from time to time and will post any changes on this page.
