Privacy Policy

Effective Date: September, 2013
 
At Certified ROI, Inc., we respect the privacy of visitors to our website. This privacy statement applies only to the information collected online through our website. It does not describe information collected or obtained offline, not through our website. Please read this statement carefully. If you have any questions, please contact customer service.
 
PROTECTING CHILDREN’S PRIVACY
Our website is not to be used by children under 16. After all, this is the legal driving age in most states. NO CHILDREN SHOULD EVER PROVIDE ANY PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION TO ANY WEBSITE WITHOUT THEIR PARENTS PERMISSION.
 
THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Gathering Information Falls Into 2 Basic Categories:
A: Tracking Information: As users use our website, tracking information may be gathered. Third-party venders or providers that have ads or links on our site may also gather information. Please visit these venders or providers sites directly to view their privacy policies, since we do not control their activity.
B. Visitor Supplied Information: When a user creates an account, lists an ad, performs a search, sends an email, receives a message or email, marks a favorite, requests information, inquires on a listing, forwards a listing, or provides any information to the website, information may be collected.
 
Advertising or Performing Searches:
If you list a car, you must provide certain information (i.e. name, email, address and telephone number). This information is used to create your account. As an additional value, we may also ‘push’ this information to other third-party sites to provide wider exposure for your listing. We do not control these other sites and lose all control over your information once exported. Please see our Visitors Agreement, or contact us for further information.

If you choose a paid plan, you must also provide credit card information. Please see credit card information below.
 
You may notice toll-free telephone numbers on many ads. These may appear as 800, 877, 866 or other prefixes.  If you call one of these numbers, certain private information may be provided by us or the third-party service the seller uses to the seller. This can include the date and time of the call, the duration of the call and the number where the call originated. These toll-free numbers may record the call as well. If you do not wish to have this information provided, please call the sellers local telephone number.
 
Some features on our site require that the user provide information regarding themselves and their interests, so we can fine tune the information in our site to their needs. For example, you may input a year make and model along with a zip code to narrow your search of cars. We use this information to help you.
 
If you find a listing that interests you, you have the option to email the seller via our website. If you choose to do this, we may share this email with the seller. Some sellers use third-party providers to manage their emails. Information in your emails may be provided to these third-party providers as well.
