We may link information we automatically collect with personal information, such as information you give us at Site registration. We use systems or tools to follow your use of our Site, including using cookies, web beacons, social plug-ins or other mechanisms. For example, we allow collection by analytic service provider(s) of Site click-stream and cookie data to help us track aggregate and individual use of our Site.

Use of Personal Information
PDV uses your personal information for a variety of purposes, including providing you with services. PDV may use personally identifiable information about users of the Site in aggregate form to make the Site better and more responsive to the interests of such users. Statistical compilations of such information also may be used by PDV or provided to others for marketing, advertising, or research purposes. PDV may collect certain non-personal information about users of the Site, including but not limited to the identity of their Internet browsers, the types of operating systems they use, their locations, and the domain names of their Internet service providers. Such non-personal information may be used for purposes including but not limited to improving the content of the Site, marketing, advertising, or research. PDV is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of members of its authorized dealer network, advertisers, operators of linked sites, or other third parties. PDV may use a web analytic service to help us understand how our users use our Site and to better understand our customer’s needs. We may share aggregate, non-personal data with a web analytic service in order for it to perform this function, as well as voluntarily provided personally identifiable information for lead tracking purposes. PDV does not allow the web analytic service to use your information for any other purpose or function.
PDV may occasionally release information about Site visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our Site, our customers, the public, or PDV. As our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that PDV or substantially all of its assets are acquired by another company, information on our Site visitors would be among the transferred assets.
PDV does not sell, rent, or otherwise convey personally identifiable information about users of the Site to third parties other than members of its authorized dealer network.
