How does AutSmogTest.com
use my information?
AutSmogTest.com 's primary goal in collecting
personal information is to provide you, the user, with
a customized experience on our network of sites. This
includes personalization services, interactive communications,
online shopping and many other types of services, most
of which are completely free to you. In order to provide
services free of charge, we display advertisements.
By knowing a little about you, AutSmogTest.com
is able to deliver more relevant advertisements and
content, and hence better service, to you.
In our role of delivering targeted advertisements,
AutSmogTest.com plays the middleman. Advertisers
give us an advertisement and tell us the type of audience
they want to reach (for example, males over 35 years
old). AutSmogTest.com takes the advertisement
and displays it to users meeting that criteria. In this
process, the advertiser never has access to individual
account information. Only AutSmogTest.com has
access to individuals' accounts. This kind of advertisement
targeting is done with banner ads as well as promotional
email through AutSmogTest.com Delivers. You will
only receive special offers via email from AutSmogTest.com
if you have indicated in your account preferences that
you would like to receive them. You can change your
account preferences at any time.

interests, and behavior based on the information provided
to us upon registration, during a promotion, from our
