Autogard Advantage collects personal information about you that is reasonably necessary for the purposes described above. We may collect this information directly from you or from our Autogard Advantage websites, dealers/retailers, affiliates, service providers, and other sources that compile lists of potential vehicle purchasers, always with your consent when required by law.
For example, when you purchase or lease a vehicle, a registered used car dealer, as the case may be, will collect information about you that may be shared with Autogard Advantage for the above-stated purposes. Autogard Advantage also conducts contests, quizzes, surveys, promotions and offers several forms of personalized services such as vehicle warranty, servicing and maintenance, in respect of which you may be requested to provide certain contact and eligibility information such as name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, age and other information that may be required to provide or administer these services or promotions. We may also ask you to provide additional information about your purchasing patterns and preferences, gender and other financial, insurance and demographic information such as family income. We use this information as described in our list of uses set out above. The more information you volunteer, and the more accurate it is, the better we are able to customize and improve your experience with Autogard Advantage.
