WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED
As a general rule, you will not be required to provide personally identifiable information as a condition of browsing this Web Site. However, we may collect personal information from you in certain areas of our Web Site when you submit it to us in connection with one or more specific purposes, which are described below under “How Collected Information Is Used.” When such information is gathered, we will collect the minimum amount necessary to facilitate transactions with you, to improve this Web Site and your customer experience and to make future visits to this Web Site easier and more personalized for you. The personal information we may collect includes but is not limited to your:
We may combine the information that you submit to us with information related to your transactions with us, such as rental location and vehicle type, as well as with information we receive about you from credit reporting agencies and other third parties.
We may also use pixel tags (also known as “clear gifs,” “Web beacons” or “1-by-1gifs”) on our Web Site and in our advertisements. Pixel tags consist of a few lines of computer coding and are not visible to the site user. Pixel tags help us analyze our visitors’ behavior on our Web Site and with respect to our advertisements (for example, whether or not you have clicked on one of our ads). We may work with our Affiliates (companies related to us) and our service providers to help us track, collect and analyze this information. Pixel tags may be used to collect a variety of information about your visit to our Web Site, including the pages you view, the features you use, the links you click and other actions you take, all of which may be combined with other information we have collected from you. We use this information to provide personalized and relevant Web Site content and advertising to you, to measure the effectiveness of our marketing and advertisements, to enhance the effectiveness of our Web Site, to compile aggregate usage statistics, to determine if errors are being encountered on the Web Site and for other internal business purposes. If you would like to opt out of this tracking, please click here.
We work with a service provider that helps us to optimize our search engine marketing. It does this by associating pixel tags with the terms that you use when searching online for Fleet Management services (for example, vehicle acquisition or maintenance management). If you select Enterprise from among your search results, our service provider will analyze your search terms to present you with the most appropriate landing page (for example, maintenance management services). Our service provider does not tie the search terms or any other information to your personal information; it may tie search term information to your IP address. Please go to the section below, CHOICES YOU CAN MAKE ABOUT YOUR INFORMATION, for information about how you can block cookies and certain pixel tags.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet. These companies employ cookie and pixel tag technology to measure and improve the effectiveness of ads for their clients. To do so, these companies may use anonymous information about your visits to the Web Site and other Web sites. This information can include: date/time of banner ad shown, your cookie and the first three octets of your IP address. These companies do not collect personally identifying information. This anonymous information can also be used for online preference marketing purposes.
These third-party advertising companies may use information about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide ads about goods and services of interest to you.

We are very concerned with the security of your personally identifiable information and try to provide secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. For certain transactions on certain of our Web Sites, we may use Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to secure the transfer of information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted over the Internet. Once we receive your information, we take steps that we believe are reasonably appropriate to protect its security, both internally and from outsiders, from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, and to ensure the integrity of the data we collect. We use a combination of technological, physical, administrative and policy methods as well as organizational controls and non-disclosure or confidentiality agreements as we deem appropriate to protect this data.
If you have a user name and password for any of the features on our Web Site, you have the responsibility of keeping your password secret. You should not reveal your password to anyone. We will not ask you in an unsolicited telephone call or e-mail for your password. In addition, you should take reasonable precautions when using a computer that is not your own or in a public setting.
