Our Privacy Policy has been developed using the following guiding principles:

Our dealership collects personal information online primarily to provide our visitors with a more relevant experience on this website. When doing so, we will make every reasonable effort to avoid excessive or irrelevant collection of data. Our dealership will take reasonable physical, electronic and managerial measures to safeguard and secure any personal information you provide to us (e.g. data will be stored in protected databases on secured servers with restricted access). However, given that electronically submitted data is not 100% secure, we make no representations or warranties as to the security of any personal information you submit online, which you do at your own risk.

Disclosure of Personal Information

We do not sell, rent, or trade consumer personal information to third parties other than as described in this Privacy Policy. Our dealership may disclose certain personal information as follows:

– to business partners, such as third party service providers, agents and affiliated entities in connection with the services that they perform for our dealerships, such as providing certain services necessary for the administration of this website and the provision of certain interactive functionalities. Please note that some of our agents and contractors are located outside of the country and, as such, are subject to foreign laws, including laws that may require disclosure of personal information to government agencies in those countries;

– to law enforcement agencies for the purposes of investigating fraud or other offenses
