Disclosure of your information

AUTODATA will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.
The information you provide to us will be transferred to and stored on our servers.
In summary, we will only share with or disclose your information if so required by law, to deliver the services you requested, to improve our services and/or to make you aware of other services that we deliver.
We will only share with or disclose this data to Third Parties that support our services, such as credit card companies, payment gateway providers and parties that help us analyze the information we collect so that we can administer, support, improve and develop our business and services to you. In addition, we may need to provide your information to any distribution partners or affiliates so that they can support us in providing the service you requested. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer to, storing and/or processing by Third Parties as well.
