Due to the nature of this site, we must collect a variety of information. Some information, such as analytic data, is collected automatically. Other information, such as email addresses and contact information, is collected from you. When we collect information from you, we use it to perform the operation for which you sent it to us. For example, if you sign up for emails, our site will send you emails; we will not give your email address to a third-party mailing list service. We neither host ads on our site nor sponsor ads on other sites, and do not share any information with advertisers.
We work to maintain a secure system so that your information is protected against attacks. Important to our site's security is the implementation of TLS, which stands for Transport Layer Security, also known as SSL. On this site, a lock will appear in your address bar any time you are prompted to share information. The lock provides reassurance from your browser that our TLS certificate is valid and your information will be securely delivered to our site. For more, see Security.
If you have questions or requests regarding the policy, or would like to take some action regarding privacy, we would love to hear from you! See User Choices.

In the event that Alternator Starter Exchange, LLC. is purchased by another entity, in part or whole, data collected and retained through the Site may be transferred to the successor. We also retain the right to deny the successor such data.
We propose that good security is a combination of restrained data retention and rigorous system security.
If the Site does not store a certain piece of valuable information, it is much harder for an attacker to obtain or exploit it. Therefore, We minimize the amount of data We retain.
Users of the Site can further reduce data retention (thereby increasing security) by choosing not to provide optional information to the Site. See User Choices below.
Data that is exchanged or retained must be secured. We deploy reasonable security practices on the Site. It would be inappropriate and insecure to disclose all measures We utilize, but We can qualify our commitment to security with a non-exclusive and general list of security measures used on the Site:
Absolute security of web applications is impossible to achieve. If a web application claims that it is totally secure, it is deceiving its users. What would happen if an attacker found and exploited a security hole that the developers had missed? While We take every reasonable step to protect users' information, We disclaim the security of the Site and encourage users to understand the risks of using and providing personal identifiable information to web applications.
A cookie is a small piece of information, usually an unreadable sequence of letters and numbers, sent by a web application to a user's browser for storage. The web application can then read and/or decipher the contents of the cookie at a later time.
We currently send, but do not use, cookies in public parts of the Site. In future versions of the Site, cookies may be used to power new features. In such a case, we will update our policy.
Users may prevent their browsers from accepting cookies from the Site. Currently, disabling cookies has no effect. However, in the future, users that do so will not be able to use cookie-enabled content.
Concerned users may take action in several ways to protect their privacy.
As discussed in Security, non-existent data is invulnerable to attack. Therefore, users may increase security and privacy by declining to submit data to the Site. Some data We collect is optional and will only impact convenience if not provided. For example, users are not required to subscribe to emails.
Other data We collect is necessary to the functioning of the Site and is required in order to use the Site's services. Users are not required to provide this information, although such users will also not be able to use the associated features of the Site. Note that users have no control over analytic data We collect.
Users that have subscribed to marketing email communications may unsubscribe at any time. There are two ways to do so:
