We Value Your Privacy
INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH NISSAN WEBSITE
If you provide your Social Security number to us, we will (1) Protect the confidentiality of the Social Security number, (2) prohibit unlawful disclosure of the Social Security number, and (3) limit access to the Social Security number.
Nissan collects and uses two types of information on our websites: anonymous information gathered from cookies and log files, and personal information you provide us for certain services.
Anonymous Information - Cookies and Log
Nissan may use third party providers to collect and record data on the use and performance of our websites during your visit (“Usage Data”), which may include without limitation the pages you view, the search terms you enter, your IP address, and personal information that you submit through the website. Usage Data may be collected by Nissan or its third party provider through “cookies”, log files and other technology. Nissan uses this information to administer its websites and to improve the services provided to you. Nissan may share information collected through our websites with suppliers to provide services for us or as required by law or court order. Nissan may also share Usage Data in an aggregate statistic format with a third party; such statistics would not include personal information. Nissan does not rent, sell, or trade Usage Data outside of Nissan.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to personal information, until a user provides that information (see below). If a user rejects or deletes the cookie, he/she may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, the user will not be able to receive notification of special offers, or participate in any contests that may take place. Cookies also enable us to track and aggregate clickstream behavior data. By doing this we can better target the interests of our users and enhance their experience on our site.
Nissan also maintains standard web logs that record data about all visitors to our websites. These logs may contain:
- The Internet domain from which you access the website.
- Your IP address (Your computer is automatically assigned an IP address when you surf the Internet. Your IP address is either static or dynamic. A static IP address may be identifiable to you; a dynamic address is usually not identifiable to you.)
- The type of browser and operating system you use.
- The date and time you visited the website.
- The pages you viewed on the website.
- The address of the website from which you linked.
Nissan uses web log and clickstream information to help us design our site, to identify popular site features and to make the site more useful for visitors. Web logs are recorded in sequential files, and we normally do not attempt to identify individuals from these logs. However, we may use web logs to identify persons attempting to break into, disrupt, or damage our Site. We may share web log information with law enforcement personnel if we believe evidence exists, or is likely to occur, of a violation of federal, state or local laws or regulations.
Personal Information You Provide
You may choose to volunteer personal information (name, email address, phone number, etc.) in order for us to provide you with services such as brochure and information requests, surveys and contests, site announcements, special offers at the time of the request or in the future, etc. If you would like to have your email address removed from our list, click the “unsubscribe” link included in our email message to you. Or you can call or send regular mail to remove yourself from the list (see contact information below).
If your personal information changes, email email@example.com or contact Nissan Consumer Affairs as outlined below. We will endeavor to correct or update the personal data you provide to us promptly.
If you elect to email a friend from our websites, a function available from the Design Your Vehicle page, we ask for the friend's email address. Nissan captures this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
Nissan takes all reasonable precautions to protect information transmitted through our websites, both while the information is being transmitted and after it is received by us.
Furthermore, once your information has been received by us, we use security procedures and policies commensurate with industry standards to safeguard against loss, theft, unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification and disclosure. If you have any questions about the security of our websites, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Links to Other Websites
This Web site contains links to other websites. Please be aware that Nissan is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each website that collects personal information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by websites controlled and operated by Nissan.
