We respect your privacy interests and so provide this service by these principles: Except for prima facie valid legal processes, we will not share any information we receive with any outside parties. At no time will we sell or broker any of the information we receive from you to any third parties without obtaining your prior authorization. We will use it only for our own internal purposes and, where appropriate, to contact you directly. You may browse www.autofunds.com without disclosing personally identifiable information. We want to be clear that we will not obtain such information about you unless you choose to submit it to us. For example, if you email us your comments, that identifies your email address. Subscribing members will need to provide valid user authentication to access members-only sections. We take reasonable steps to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of personally identifiable information that you may provide. All electronic transmissions through our service are encrypted using the highest level (128 bit) encryption technology available. You should understand, however, that electronic transmissions via the Internet are not necessarily secure from interception and so we cannot guarantee the security or confidentiality of such transmissions. The web server of www.autofunds.com collects and saves the default information customarily logged by World Wide Web server software.

Our logs contain the following information for each request: date and time, originating IP address and domain name (the unique address assigned to your internet service provider's computer that connects to the internet), object requested, and completion status of the request. We use these logs to help improve our service by evaluating the "traffic" to our site in terms of number of unique visitors, level of demand, most popular page requests, and types of errors. Additional access logs are also maintained to monitor usage of members-only sections. These logs contain your user authentication information and time of log in. For your safety and ours we may use this information to monitor unauthorized access to prevent any security breaches. These access logs may also be monitored to enforce prevailing Terms of Usage as posted on www.autofunds.com and as updated from time to time. These logs may be kept for an indefinite amount of time, used at any time and in any way necessary to prevent security breaches, to ensure the integrity and proper use of the data on our servers, and to evaluate or improve the services we provide to users.
