When you interact with us through Dash, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:

Personal Data That You Provide Through Dash: We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys, register for access to Dash or use certain Services. Wherever Dash or Dealer Innovations collects Personal Data we make an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy.

Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. Dealer Innovations LLC may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Dealer Innovations affiliates, agents or service providers. Dash may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.

In operating Dash, we may use a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Services gives to your browser when you access Dash.
