respects the privacy of visitors to our website. Please read this Privacy Statement carefully so that you understand what information we collect through our website and what we do with that information. This Privacy Statement applies only to information collected online through this website and does not describe the ways in which we may collect or use information obtained offline or through any means other than our website. If you have any questions about this Privacy Statement, please contact us. Millerwired.com >>PROTECTING THE PRIVACY OF CHILDREN
Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. Our website is not directed at children under 13 and we won't knowingly allow anyone under 13 to provide us any personally identifying information; if you're under 13, please don't provide any information about yourself on this website. THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information supplied by visitors to the site when they inquire about a vehicle listed for sale or about another product or service offered through our website, or enter a sweepstakes or other promotional contest; and (2) tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our website. The tracking information is collected at an aggregate level. That is, we track statistics such as the total number of visits to a web page on our site in a given month, average time spent per user on the site, etc. We do not track at the individual level.
To make use of certain features on our site, visitors need to provide limited information about themselves and their interests. For example, if you want more information regarding a vehicle listed on our site, we need to provide your contact information to the dealership. Some dealerships that list vehicles for sale on our site use third-party service providers to manage their "leads" (that is, the online inquiries they receive from consumers who are interested in the vehicles they've listed for sale). If a dealership has designated a provider of lead management services, we may also share with that provider any information you elect to send.
If you do not wish to share your email address or other contact information with the dealerships on our website or lead management service providers, you should not use our online contact forms. Many of the dealership listings that appear on our website include toll-free telephone numbers that can be used to contact the dealership that is selling the advertised vehicle. If you call a dealership using one of these toll-free numbers, we may provide the dealership with the date, time, and duration of your call, as well as the number from which your call originated. If you wish to contact a dealership that advertises on our website without disclosing this information, please contact the dealership by email or by dialing its local telephone number.Sweepstakes and Other Promotions:
From time to time, we may offer sweepstakes or other promotions on our website. If you enter a sweepstakes or promotional contest, we'll ask you to provide information about yourself (such as your name, address, and email address). Among other things, we'll need this information to contact you if you win, and we may also use this information for marketing purposes. We may share this information with any co-sponsor of the contest or sweepstakes; we'll identify the co-sponsor in the contest rules. We may also share this information with shipping or fulfillment companies or other third-party service providers that help administer our promotions, such as by conducting drawings, and/or delivering prizes to winners. If you don't want us to collect the information requested in the contest or sweepstakes registration form or to provide it to co-sponsors, please do not enter the contest or sweepstakes. Web Beacons:
To help us keep track of how many users are accessing particular pages and listings within our website, and to track how users respond to ads we place on third-party websites, we may place a small file, called a web beacon, on some of our pages and on some of the listings we distribute. In combination with cookies, these web beacons allow us to track the number of users who view particular pages and listings to fine tune the advertising messages delivered to users of this and other websites.
Cookies To help us tailor our website to the needs and interests of our visitors, we may keep track of the pages visited by our users by placing a cookie, a small entry in text file, on your hard drive. The cookie contains an ID number that allows us to track the pages you've visited. We aggregate this data with data on the pages visited by other users to track overall visitor traffic patterns. We use this information to improve our site by making it more responsive to the needs of our users. Cookies don't reveal personally identifying information; the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. Cookies can't read unrelated data off your hard drive. The help function on most web browsers contains information on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting a cookie or to disable cookies entirely. However, if you don't accept cookies, you won't be able to take advantage of various features on our site that are available to other visitors. Browser Level Information:
Our web server automatically collects limited information about your computer configuration when you visit our site, including the type of browser software you use, the operating system you're running, the resolution of your computer monitor, the website that referred you, and your IP address. (Your IP address is a numerical address that is used by computers connected to the Internet to identify your computer so that data (such as the web pages you want to view) can be transmitted to you. Your IP address does not tell us who you are.) We use this information to make our site as useful as we can for as many users as possible.
The information we have in our databases are not shared by us to third parties in any way. We only collect this information to pass it on to the dealerships whose vehicles are listed on our site.
However, we may occasionally release information about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our site, our customers, the public or Millerwired.com. As our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that Milerwired.com, one of its business units, or substantially all of its assets is acquired by another company, information on our visitors would be among the transferred assets.SECURITY
Information we gather on our website is stored within Millerwired-controlled databases (or databases hosted on our behalf) on servers maintained in protected environments. Any credit card information you provide us is secured for transmission over the Internet using industry-standard secure sockets layer (SSL) encryption. Click here

We cannot guarantee the security of our servers or databases, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. And, of course, any information you include in a vehicle listing is available to anyone with Internet access. CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT
