This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from vinvaquero.com (the “Site”).

Terms of Service

This is an agreement between you and VINvaquero.com. By accessing or using the this website, you agree to be bound by this agreement.

The VIN Decoder, Recalls Search, and Safety Ratings tools found on this site rely on external database sources to provide you with your results.

As such, the accuracy of the results depend on the data you enter and the external sources.

VINvaquero.com is designed to easily connect you with that data for research purposes only.

VINvaquero.com does not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of information found on the site or within the search tools.

For official details regarding any recalls or other issues with your vehicle, please contact the manufacturer or your local dealership.

If you are purchasing a vehicle, you acknowledge that these tools, nor any vehicle history report, are not a substitute for an independent vehicle inspection.

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

  • “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier.
  • “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
  • “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.
  • Google Analytics

Additionally when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information (including credit card numbers, Paypal addresses, etc.), email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Order Information.”

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information.

HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

We use the Order Information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). Additionally, we use this Order Information to:

  • Communicate with you;
  • Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud; and
  • When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services. (Newsletter)

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).

SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information, as described above. We use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site — you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.

Third-Party Advertisements & Affiliate Programs

These affiliate relationships come at no extra cost to you.

Affiliate products are purchased through the advertised company rather than vinvaquero.com. Any ordering, purchasing, or return issues will need to be handled through them.

vinvaquero.com also may show you advertisements served by the Google Display Network and other advertisers.
