Welcome, and thank you for your interest in Champion Motors (“Champion Motors”, “we,” or “us”) and our web site at www.championmotors.ca, as well as all related web sites and other services provided by us and on which a link to this Privacy Policy (this “Policy”) is displayed.

Champion Motors respects your right to privacy. This Policy outlines how Champion Motors’ privacy principles protect your privacy as a key part of Champion Motors’ on-going sales and service relationship with you as a valued customer and visitor to our Site. The privacy principles apply to all personal information that Champion Motors collects from customers. Personal information refers to any personally identifiable information about you. It does not include aggregate information that does not identify you specifically.

The information we collect on the Site:

  • User-provided Information. When you use our Site, you may provide and we may collect what is generally called “personally identifiable” information, or “personal information,” which is information that specifically identifies an individual. Examples of personal information include name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, and credit card or other billing information. You may provide us with personal information in various ways on our Site. For example, you provide us with personal information when you place and online order, place an order or make an inquiry by phone or through email, submit an inquiry through “Request Info” or “Contact Us” sections of our website, and where applicable, utilize our online appointment booking system.
  • “Cookies” Information. When you use our Site, we may send one or more cookies which are small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters — to your device. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser or when you leave the site, they expire and are no longer active. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site.
  • “Automatically Collected” Information. When you use our Site, we may automatically record certain information from your device by using various types of technology, including “clear gifs” or “web beacons.” This “automatically collected” information may include your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or Site that you visit just before or just after you visit our Site, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on the Site, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the Site. We also may use these technologies to collect information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message.
  • Analytics. We may work with different companies who offer services that can assist us in better understanding how visitors/users of our Site interact with and use our Site. For example, we currently use and may continue to use a product called Google Analytics by permitting Google to use technologies such as web beacons and cookies to collect certain non-personally identifiable information that helps us understand your usage of our Site. We may permit Google and other third party analytics providers to combine information collected through our Site with information collected from third party services, and these analytics providers may use this information to help us better understand our users, and these analytics providers may also use this information to help their other customers better understand their users. Additionally, we currently use and may continue to use a version of Google Analytics called Google Analytics for Display Advertisers, which enables Google to collect, use, and disclose information in connection with certain advertising activities. You may opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads at https://www.google.com/settings/ads.
  • Integrated Services. You may be given the option to access, register for, or place an order on our site through the use of your user name and passwords for certain services provided by third parties (each, an “Integrated Service”), such as through the use of your PayPal account credentials, or otherwise have the option to authorize an Integrated Service to provide personal information or other information to us. By authorizing us to connect with an Integrated Service, you authorize us to access and store the information that the Integrated Service makes available to us, and to use and disclose it in accordance with this Policy. You should check your privacy settings on each Integrated Service to understand and change the information sent to us through each Integrated Service. Please review each Integrated Service’s terms of use and privacy policies carefully before using their services and connecting to our Site.
  • Information from Other Sources. We may obtain information, including personal information, from third parties and sources other than our Site, such as our partners, advertisers, and Integrated Services.
