WHAT ARE COOKIES?
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For session ID cookies, once you close your browser or log out, the cookie terminates and is erased. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on your computer's hard drive for an extended period of time. Your browser's help file contains information and instructions for removing persistent cookies. Session ID cookies may be used by American Rental to track user preferences while the user is visiting the website. They also help to minimize load times and save on server processing. Persistent cookies may be used by American Rental to store whether, for example, you want your password remembered or not, and other information. Cookies used on the American Rental website do not contain personally identifiable information.
Like most standard websites, we use log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. However, none of the information stored in our log files, including but not limited to IP addresses, is linked to personally identifiable information.
HOW WE USE THIS INFORMATION
American Rental may use the personally identifiable information we collect to contact customers regarding products and services offered by American Rental and, to the extent the user has agreed to it, by its trusted affiliates, independent contractors and business partners. We may also use this information for research purposes regarding the effectiveness of our website services, marketing, advertising, and sales efforts. American Rental will not in any way share this information with a third party either for free or by selling it, unless you specifically authorize such disclosures.
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
SPECIAL OFFERS AND UPDATES
Our customers and users will occasionally receive newsletters or e-mails with information on products, services, or special offers. Out of respect for the privacy of our users, American Rental gives them the opportunity to opt-out from receiving these types of communications.
On rare occasions, it is necessary to send out a strictly service-related announcement, if, for instance, our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not promotional in nature.
MAINTENANCE OF INFORMATION
The information provided to American Rental is saved indefinitely and may be stored on one or more databases directly or indirectly maintained by American Rental. American Rental employs industry-standard security measures to protect the confidentiality of the information. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of data will not occur; we make every effort to prevent such occurrences. Any other particularly sensitive information, such as credit card numbers collected for commercial transactions, is encrypted prior to transmission by you to American Rental.
You are responsible for the security of your Customer ID and passwords. Make sure you keep them in a safe place and do not share them with others. Always remember to log out after your session ends to ensure that others cannot access your private personal information. You should take this precaution even if you are not using a public computer, such as at a library or internet café, but even when using your private computer in your home.
