In this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual, such as an individual’s name and email address, but does not include (to the extent permitted by law) information that is publicly available in a telephone directory or that is business contact information that enables an individual to be contacted at a place of business.

 

3. Information That Fast Auto Financing Collects

(a) Information You Provide
You may be asked to voluntarily give your personal information to Fast Auto Fianancing when you interact with the Fast Auto Fianancing Company, including when you apply for an account or membership, subscribe to a newsletter, register to receive information, apply or register for or order a product or service offered by Fast Auto Fianancing or use a product or service provided by  Fast Auto Fianancing. In those circumstances, you can choose not to provide certain requested personal information, but then you might not be able to proceed with your intended interaction or transaction with Fast Auto Fianancing

Fast Auto Fianancing websites, online services, email messages and advertisements may use technologies (e.g. cookies, web beacons, tokens, pixels or tags) to collect information that assists the Fast Auto Finance to improve its products, services, customer communications and advertising and to prevent fraud.

When you apply or register for, order or use certain products or services from Fast Auto Financing  (e.g. a referral to a car dealer for a financed car purchase), Fast Auto Financing may obtain your credit score and related information from a credit reporting agency to process or fulfill the transaction, and Fast Auto Financing may also use the credit score and related information to update your confidential profile for use by Fast Auto Financing  as set out in this Privacy Policy. Upon your request we will inform you if we have ordered such a report, and will give you the name and address of the credit reporting agency that furnished the report. 


You also acknowledge and agree that any dealers or other persons or organizations to which we have disclosed your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, may request a credit report for any legitimate purpose associated with your application [for credit, extending credit, modifying the terms of your credit agreement, or collection on your account.]

(d) Information Regarding Referred Transactions
If Fast Auto Finanacing refers you to an independent business (e.g. a car dealer, lender or credit card company) for a proposed transaction (e.g. a car purchase, loan or credit card), then Fast Auto Financing  may collect from that independent business information regarding the transaction to update your confidential profile for use by Fast Auto Financing as set out in this Privacy Policy.
