Your privacy is important to Hyundai Motor Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “Hyundai” “we,” “us” or “our”), as is your trust in Hyundai’s products and services.
Not Covered by this Policy: This Policy only applies to the Site and not to any other Hyundai website or online service, including the Hyundai Motor America website, unless specifically indicated. It does not apply to any third party websites even though we may link to these sites on our Site.
Personal Information We Collect and How We Collect It
We collect information about you from several sources: directly from you, from third parties, and automatically through your use of our Site and interactions with us. For example, we collect personal information that you provide directly by completing one of the forms on our Site or by signing up for our newsletter. We and our third party services providers also automatically collect usage data when you use the Site via cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies; web analytics; and log files. We may combine the information we collect from these various sources. For more information about cookies, see our Cookies Policy.
Categories of Personal Information Collected
Certain privacy laws, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), require that we disclose the categories of personal information that we may collect about individuals. While the actual information we collect varies depending upon the circumstances, generally we may collect the following categories of personal information:
Use of Personal Information
Hyundai uses the information collected above in several different ways. And we may use your information individually or combine it with other information to generate aggregate statistical information. The primary uses of your information include:
Disclosure of Personal Information
We disclose personal information to third parties to provide and improve our Site, products, and services; to reach you with more relevant information and offers; to provide you with information about the third party offers you may be interested in, and to honor your consent or authorization. We also disclose personal information to the entities listed and for the purposes set out below:
Categories of Personal Information are Disclosed. Certain privacy laws, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act, require that we tell you about the categories of personal information that we have disclosed for a business purpose, as well as the categories that we have “sold.” Please review the section Categories of Personal Information Collected above for further descriptions of each category of personal information. This information is not limited to California users.
Disclosed for business purpose. In general, we may disclose the following categories of personal information as shown in the table below for business purposes described above:
|Categories of personal information disclosed for our business purposes||Categories of third parties to whom this information was disclosed|
|Identifiers||Affiliates and subsidiaries; dealers; service providers and suppliers; analytics providers; and government entities.|
|Commercial information||Affiliates and subsidiaries; dealers; service providers and suppliers; analytics providers; and government entities.|
|Identifiable Internet or other electronic network activity information||Affiliates and subsidiaries; service providers and suppliers; analytics providers; and government entities.|
Sale. We do not disclose personal information through the Site to third parties in exchange for direct monetary compensation from such third parties. We may disclose or make available personal information collected through the Site to third parties to receive certain services or benefits from them—for example, when we allow third party tags to collect information such as browsing history on our Site to improve and measure our ad campaigns. This disclosure can be considered a sale under certain laws, like the CCPA, and the information “sold” in this manner includes: identifiers, customer records, commercial information, Internet or other electronic network usage data, and profiles and inferences to affiliates and subsidiaries, and analytics providers. These entities are contractually required to use the personal information we disclose exclusively to provide their respective services, and not for their own independent purposes.
