Privacy Policy

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

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”. 
  • Use of cookies: 
    We use "cookies" to store specific information about you and track your visits to the Site, either through a compute or via a mobile device. It is not uncommon for websites to use cookies to enhance identification of their visitors.
  • 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), 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. 

We also protect all personal information that is collected from you offline, such as through phone calls. If we contact you by telephone regarding an order or payment, we will ask only for the personal information needed to place your order or resolve your issue. When we need to store information related to an order, we enter it into our database through SSL encryption. While our website is designed for a general audience, we will not knowingly collect any data from children or sell products to children under 16, who are not permitted to use or submit the data to the website.

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. 
  • 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 you personal Information

  • We share your Personal Information with third parties to help us use your Personal Information, as described above. For example, we use Shopify to power our online store--you can read more about how Shopify uses your Personal Information here: https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy. We also 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. 

Behavioural advertising

  • As described above, we use your Personal Information to provide you with targeted advertisements or marketing communications we believe may be of interest to you. For more information about how targeted advertising works, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s (“NAI”) educational page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising/how-does-it-work.

    • Google: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/anonymous
    • Bing: https://advertise.bingads.microsoft.com/en-us/resources/policies/personalized-ads

Do not sell my information 

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) gives California consumers the right to say no to the sale of personal information. The term “sale” is broadly defined by the CCPA and includes sharing personal information for monetary or other valuable consideration, but does not cover all sharing of personal information.

We do not sell information that personally identifies our customers or other consumers such as name, telephone number or email address. We may share that type of information with directory publishers and for caller ID purposes, and as otherwise described in our Privacy Policy

We also allow third-party advertising companies to collect information about your activity on our websites, for example through cookies and similar technologies, mobile ad identifiers, pixels, web beacons and social network plugins. These ad entities use information they collect to help us provide more relevant advertisements and other advertising purposes.  This activity may be considered a sale under the CCPA.

This page gives you information about your choices regarding cookies and other technology, as well as additional privacy choices offered by CarPlay Smart Box. For more details about the information CarPlay Smart Box collects, how that information is used and shared, and your choices, please visit our Privacy Policy.
