What Kind of Information Does Mercedes Collect?
Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a positive experience while you use our Website, to hear your comments, to respond to your inquiries, and to provide you with access to our services. Mercedes may collect both personal information ("Personal Information") and information about your use of the Website ("Non-personal Information"). Personal Information may include your name, address and email address. Non-personal Information may include: 1) technical information, such as the date and time you access the Website, and your Internet protocol address; and 2) service usage information, such as records and history about transactions and preferences, and the demographic, geographic, and psychographic information, and other feedback you supply to us. Also, when you register or create an online account/profile with us, contact customer service, participate in our surveys, or send us testimonials, feedback or submissions, you are providing us with your personal information.
We also utilize cookies. Cookies are small files that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser to enable us to recognize you when you return to our website. Cookies let us identify you to provide you a personalized experience on our website. We use cookie and web beacon technology to track which pages on our sites our visitors view. Most Internet browsers permit you to erase or block cookies. If you configure your browser to remove or reject cookies, though, you may not be able to use the full functionality of our Website.

When we collect information from you, such information may be used for one or more of the following reasons:

Does Mercedes Share My Information With Third Parties?
We may share Non-personal Information with select third parties on an anonymous basis (that is, in a way that does not connect your Non-personal Information to your Personal Information or disclose your Personal Information in any fashion).
If Mercedes, or substantially all of our assets, are sold, or Mercedes reorganizes or merges into another company, then customer information, including Personal Information, will likely be one of the transferred assets.
On rare occasions, we may be required to disclose your Personal Information as required by law and as necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us. Or we may need to do so to protect our customer's rights.
Is My Information Secure With Mercedes?
Mercedes uses security measures to protect the privacy of your Personal Information. However, transmissions over the Internet are not completely secure, and any information you send to or through our Website may be accessible by others. Mercedes cannot guarantee our security measures.
You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your user name, password, and any account information. It is important for you to be responsible and protect your user name, password, and device against unauthorized users. It is important to sign off when you have completed using a device accessible by others.
How does Mercedes Protect Kids' Privacy?
We are concerned about the safety of children when they use the Internet and will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13. Users of our Website must be at least 13 years old. If you are under 13 years old, you should not provide information to us without the involvement of a parent or guardian. If a child has provided us with personal information, that child's parent or guardian should contact us (see below) to delete such information from our records.
We ask that you not send us, and you not disclose, any sensitive Personal Information (e.g., information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health or medical condition or criminal background) on or through the Website or otherwise to us.
