Your Personal Information
The submission by you to VroomGirls of personally identifiable information (e.g., your name, your street address, your e-mail address, your telephone number) may be required in order for you to receive certain services, products or information you request from either us or companies with which we do business. (We refer to such personally identifiable information, as well as any other information that you voluntarily provide to us about yourself on VroomGirls that we combine with your personally identifiable information — but not your city, state or Zip Code — as your “Personal Information.”) Your Personal Information will be shared between us and those companies, and may also be disclosed to other entities who work with us or those companies to fulfill your request. In addition, if you provide your Personal Information through the use of one of our vehicle price quote or inquiry services, your Personal Information may be provided by us to vehicle dealers, and may also be provided by us to the manufacturers of those vehicles (and/or their affiliates and agents), who may use that information to contact you. VroomGirls cannot control, and is not responsible for, the manner in which any of such companies or other entities use your Personal Information.
In certain locations on the VroomGirls site where we obtain your Personal Information we may include a “check box” (or another process) for the purpose of soliciting your consent to receive special offers and/or other information from other entities selected by us. By either “checking” the box, or leaving the check box “checked” (or otherwise providing your consent), you are choosing to receive promotional and marketing communications from those other entities, and you are consenting to our providing your Personal Information to those other entities. You may withdraw your consent by (i) sending a request to us through our Contact Us form, or (ii) by sending us a request by mail to P.O. Box 203725, Austin, TX 78720, Attention: Customer Service. However, withdrawing your consent will not affect the rights of the other entities that previously received your Personal Information to continue to send communications to you.
In addition, we may send you communications related to our products or services or those of third parties. However, you will have the opportunity at any time to “opt-out” of receiving future promotional and marketing communications from us either (i) by following the instructions located at the bottom of any e-mail we send you, (ii) by sending a request to us through our Contact Us form, or (iii) by sending us a request by mail to P.O. Box 203725, Austin, TX 78720; Attention: Customer Service.
If you do not give your consent, either in the manner described in the preceding paragraphs or in another manner, your Personal Information will not be shared by us with other entities, except as set forth above or as follows: We may disclose whatever information we may have or know about you, including your Personal Information, without first notifying you or obtaining your consent, to third-party service providers who assist us to improve our data or our services or to better understand their value to our visitors or to the companies with which we do business; or to other third parties if we determine that disclosure of such information: (i) is or may be required by law or legal process; (ii) is or may be reasonably necessary to enforce the VroomGirls Terms & Conditions or to take appropriate action if a visitor is determined by us to have violated either of those agreements; or (iii) is or may be reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of our company, VroomGirls, LLC, our visitors or other individuals or entities. We may also disclose to third parties portions of VroomGirls log files that show which “Internet service provider” a visitor has used or other visitor information. That information may enable third parties to discover, through that Internet service provider, the identity of a visitor.
We may use both your Personal Information, and other information we may have about you (such as your IP address) or your use of the VroomGirls website (such as which pages you have visited), to customize or enhance your experience on VroomGirls, including the display of advertisements.
“Cookies” are small data files that are written to your computer or other device through which you many access VroomGirls by a web site or by third parties when you visit that web site. A cookie file contains information such as a user ID that a site may use to track the pages you’ve visited. Cookies served by us don’t permit us to read data from your computer or other device, or to read cookie files created by other web sites.
First Visits: When you first visited VroomGirls, we served a cookie to you. This cookie resides permanently on your computer or other device (unless you chose to delete it) and enables us to track visitor activity across our web sites.
Applications: Whenever you use certain applications on VroomGirls, we may serve a “session cookie” to you, which is a cookie that is only used by us during your use of that application. In addition, for some applications we may serve a cookie to you that has a longer expiration date. These cookies help us manage our delivery to you of application information and related content.
Vehicle Price Quotes: In order to obtain vehicle price quotes or make a vehicle inquiry, you may be presented with a form that requests, among other items, your name and contact information. When this form is submitted by you, the information you provide is stored on our computers, so that we have a record of what we have sent to our partners. We also serve a cookie to you that encodes where on our computers that information is maintained, so that we can “pre-fill” your name and contact information for you when in the future you call up a similar form.
Advertisements: Our advertising results in the serving of cookies and other tracking technologies that facilitate the delivery and administration of such advertising. See “Third-Party Ad Servers” below.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect your Personal Information, both during transmission to us and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.
If you have any questions about security on VroomGirls, please use our Contact Us form.
We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to send any information about yourself to us. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us through our Contact Us form.

As part of its service, VroomGirls does NOT collect any personally identifiable information from Users. VroomGirls also does NOT store any personally identifiable information such as name, address, telephone number, social security number or e-mail. As a result, we have no way of tying any of the information we collect back to a particular User.
VroomGirls welcomes your comments. All of your communications made to us are referred to as your “Visitor-Submitted Content.” For information concerning our use of your Visitor-Submitted Content, please see our Terms & Conditions.
Occasionally we conduct visitor surveys to better target our content to our audience or for the benefit of third parties with whom we do business. Accordingly, sometimes the aggregate survey results are shared with our advertisers and partners. We never share any survey information about any identified individual with any third party unless that individual consents.
E-mail this Page to a Friend
Many of the pages on VroomGirls include a feature that permits visitors to electronically forward that page to someone else by clicking on a link. The sender must provide his or her e-mail address, as well as that of the recipient. The sender’s information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the page. Neither the sender’s information nor the recipient’s information is used for any other purpose.
