Cookie Policy

Cookies Policy and Ad Choices

This Cookies Policy describes how Autocheck ("we", "our", "us") uses Cookies and similar technologies. For more information on our general data privacy practices, please see the Privacy Policy here.

Cookies

  • Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on your computer, mobile phone, or other device when you first visit a page. We use cookies, web beacons, locally shared objects (sometimes called "flash cookies"), mobile identifiers and similar technologies ("Cookies") to help us recognize you on the Platform, enhance your user experience, understand usage of the Platform, and show you relevant advertising. After you register on the Platform, we may connect information we collect from the Cookies set by us and our partners with other information received from you. The provision of your data via Cookies is voluntary except for those Cookies that we place on your device because we need them for the performance of our Platform and our services.

What types of Cookies do we use?

  • We use three types of Cookies on the Platform: "session cookies," "persistent cookies," And “third-party cookies”. Session Cookies are temporary Cookies that remain on your device until you leave the Platform. A persistent Cookie remains on your device for much longer until you manually delete it (how long the Cookie remains will depend on the duration or "lifetime" of the specific Cookie and your browser settings). Third-party cookies are used by us and third parties to serve ads that are relevant to your interests.

What are Cookies used for?

  • Cookies transmit information about you and your use of the Platform, such as your browser type, search preferences, job titles, data relating to advertisements that have been displayed to you or that you have clicked on, and the date and time of your use.
We use Cookies for things like:
  • Preferences and Features - We use Cookies to enable features, help us provide you with personalized content such as showing you your recent search activity.
  • Advertising- We use Cookies to deliver, evaluate and improve advertising, such as by using information about you to provide relevant advertising both on and off the Platform. Our Ad Partners may use a cookie to determine whether you've already been shown an advert or how it performed, or provide us with information about how you interacted with an ad.
  • Analytics and Performance - We use Cookies to analyze how our visitors use the Platform and to monitor site performance. These Cookies help us to identify and fix errors, understand and improve services, research and test our different features, and monitor how our visitors reach our sites.
  • Ad Choices and Managing Cookies - Autochek works with third parties to provide you with personalized, interest-based advertising. We may target ads to you, and measure their performance, on and off the Platform using:
    • Customer-provided profile information;
    • Your use of the Platform (e.g., search history, web pages visited);
    • Information inferred from data described above
    • IP address or mobile device location information (to the extent you have enabled location tracking on your device);
    • Cookies (both on and off the Platform) which may include information from the Ad Partners we use to help deliver relevant ads to you.

How We Work with Third-Party Ad Partners

  • When we work with our Ad Partners to serve you personalized, interest-based advertising, we do not share information with them that they can use to identify you or associate with you as a specific individual unless you have instructed us to do so (such as when you fill out a lead form in an ad). Similarly, if one of these Ad Partners have information about you saved in one of their own Cookies on your browser, they use that information to help us send you a relevant ad, but they do not share with us information that we can associate with you as an individual.
  • We work with third parties, such as Google Analytics, to provide analytics services that use the Cookies set on your device to measure the performance of advertising and track traffic to Autochek generally. We have also implemented Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, which categorizes Cookie information so that we and third-party service providers can better deliver advertisements that are relevant and useful to you on the Platform and various websites across the internet.

Opting Out of Cookies

  • Autochek Cookies. We use Cookies that are necessary for us to provide the services you use and you cannot opt out of these Cookies on the Platform. You are able to disable placement of some (but not all) Cookies by setting your browser to decline cookies, though this may worsen your user experience. Additionally, you can also control, manage and/or delete cookies via your browser settings. A useful resource for information about deleting and controlling cookies can be found at AboutCookies.org.
  • If you enable location data for the mobile version of the Platform (including any version installed as a native application), we may use your location data to serve you geo-targeted. In such instances, we do not share your location with the advertiser or advertising network; rather, we provide the advertiser or advertising network with a means to push ads through to users located in certain areas. You may disable location services at any time in your device privacy.

Ad Partner Cookies

Here are some options for managing the third-party Cookies used by our Ad Partners:

  • You are able to opt out of other third-party advertiser and ad network placement of Cookies or targeted advertising generally by visiting the following links: Network Advertising Initiative; Digital Advertising Alliance; European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (for users in the EU); The Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada; You will continue to receive generic ads by companies not listed with these opt-out tools.
  • You can opt out of tracking by Google Analytics and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting services by visiting Google Ads Settings or by downloading the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on.

Please note: If ads or other features on the Platform are provided by third parties, those parties set and use their own Cookies that are subject to those third parties' privacy notices and policies. Autochek does not have access to, or control over, these Cookies. Also, if you respond to ads posted by third parties or submit information to third parties via the Platform, such third parties receive information about you subject to their privacy policies.

Do Not Track Signals

  • We do not currently respond to 'do not track' signals and similar settings or mechanisms. When you use the Platform, we try to provide a customized experience.

EEA Resident Rights

  • If you are a resident of the European Economic Area, you have the following data protection rights:
  • If you wish to access, correct, update or request deletion of your personal information, you can do so at any time by contacting us at info@autochek.com

  • Similarly, if we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
  • You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your personal information. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority.
  • We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to keep any information in our archives that we deem necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

How Long We Keep Your Personal Information

  • We keep your personal information only so long as we need it to provide the Platform to you and fulfill the purposes described in this Policy. This is also the case for anyone that we share your personal information with and who carries out services on our behalf. Retention periods can vary significantly based on the type of information and how it is used. Our retention periods are based on criteria that include legally mandated retention periods, pending or potential litigation, our intellectual property or ownership rights, contract requirements, operational directives or needs, and historical archiving. When we no longer need to use your personal information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements, we’ll either remove it from our systems or depersonalize it so that we can't identify you.

Security Safeguards

We employ physical, electronic, and managerial measures to safeguard the information we collect online. However, no company can fully eliminate security risks, so we cannot make guarantees about any part of our services.

International Transfer

The information about you that we collect, process and/or use through the Platform are hosted on servers inside and outside the United States. If you are located in the European Union or elsewhere outside of the Africa, information that we collect (including through cookies) will be processed and stored in the United States, a jurisdiction in which the data protection and privacy laws may not offer the same level of protection as those in the country where you reside or are a citizen. By using our Platform and providing information to use, you consent to the transfer to and processing of information in the United States.

Updates to Our Privacy or Cookie Policies

The Autochek reserves the right to change how we handle the information we collect and process through our website at any time. These Policies will be updated promptly to reflect any such changes. If you have any questions about these Policies, please contact us via email at info@autochek.africa
