Privacy & Policy

This Web site (“Site”) is developed, operated and updated by Road Armor (“Road Armor”). Road Armor respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) outlines how we gather and disseminate information and, particularly with respect to your own Personal Information, how you can maximize your control over its disclosure. By using the Site you agree to be bound by all terms, conditions and notices contained or referenced herein as well as in Road Armor’s Contest Rules (“Contest Rules”) and Terms of Service (“Terms of Service”) each of which are included below and incorporated by reference.

Road Armor may change this Privacy Policy, the Terms of Service and Contest Rules at any time by posting revisions to the Site, and your continued use of the Site indicates your agreement to the revised terms. Accordingly, you should check this document and the policies herein from time to time to keep informed of such changes and if you do not agree to the terms of these policies or revisions please do not register as a user or deregister as a user and exit the Site immediately.

Information CollectedRoad Armor may collect two types of information: personal information (“Personal Information”) and aggregated non-personally identifiable information (“Aggregated Information”). Personal Information includes information such as your name, user name, address, postal code, telephone number, e-mail address, IP address, age, marital status, income level, education level, intentions, preferences and opinions. We do not collect Personal Information except when you provide it on a voluntary basis. Aggregated Information will include information that is anonymous, such as the type of browser you are using, general non-identifying demographic information and other such non-personally identifiable information.

Why We Collect InformationYou may be required to register or otherwise voluntarily provide Personal Information in order to access some specific features of the Site or enter a contest or to be provided with a product or service that you have requested. You may choose not to provide the Personal Information, but this may lead to decreased functionality of the Site for you and will prevent us from providing you with certain products or services. However, you can still access and visit many of the Site's features. We also may request you to voluntarily provide Personal Information that is not required to access features of our site. This information enables Road Armor to make general improvements to the Site, ensures that content standards of certain sections are upheld, enables us to contact prize winners and better serve your specific interests. Road Armor may collect Aggregated Information through the use of cookies or by other means. We use this information to assess general usage patterns, including identifying repeat users, collecting demographic information, administering and making improvements to the Site to tailor our visitors’ experiences and to display content according to a visitor’s preferences. Subject to agreements with third parties, Road Armor may match Aggregated Information with parameters established by third parties, without releasing Personal Information or information that may specifically identify our users. This may be done in order to describe the Site or services to trading partners, advertisers or other third parties by disclosing certain general statistics such as the percentage of our users who are men, women, professionals, etc. Road Armor, our affiliated companies, business partners and such other third party as we may designate reserve the right to use, maintain, update, disclose and/or sell Aggregate Information to third parties.

How we Use InformationRoad Armor generally uses information to compile statistical data and to contact users and provide them with a better interactive experience.

If you have entered and won any Road Armor contests, Road Armor and/or our sponsors may publish your name, photograph – if applicable -- and city of residence. Road Armor works closely with a number of parties who may perform functions on our behalf, including fulfilling orders, providing music streaming services or other third party content, providing promotional materials to our users, sending e-mail, managing, compiling and processing data, processing credit card payments or providing customer service.

In addition, we will not contact you without your permission except as specified herein or in connection with the registration process.

It includes the number of visitors to our Services, the websites that referred them to our Services, the pages that they visited on our Services, what time of day they visited our Services, whether they have visited our Services before and other similar anonymous, aggregated information. We use this information to help operate our Services more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information and to monitor the level of activity on our Services.

Essential Cookies

Essential cookies are necessary to provide you with services available through our Services and to enable you to use our features. For example, they allow you to log in to secure areas of our Services and help the content of the pages you request load more quickly. Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.

Functionality Cookies

Functionality cookies allow our Services to remember choices you make when you use our Services, for example remembering your language preferences, remembering your login details, remembering which polls you have voted in (and in some cases to show you poll results) and remembering changes you make to other parts of our Services which you can customize. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit our Services.

Social Media Cookies

Social media cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on our Services or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking website such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The social network will record that you have done this.

Targeted and advertising cookies

Targeted and advertising cookies track your browsing habits to enable us to show advertising which is more likely to be of interest to you. These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests. Based on that information, third-party advertisers can place cookies to enable them to show advertisements that may be relevant to your interests while you are on third-party websites. These cookies also store your location, including your latitude, longitude, and GeoIP region ID, which helps us show you locale-specific news and allows our Services to operate more efficiently. You can disable cookies that remember your browsing habits and target advertising at you by visiting https://youradchoices.com/control. If you choose to remove targeted or advertising cookies, you will still see advertisements but they may not be relevant to you. Even if you do choose to remove cookies by the companies listed at the above link, not all companies that serve online behavioral advertising are included in this list, so you may still receive cookies and tailored advertisements from companies that are not listed.

A pixel tag can collect information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the tag appears; the URL of the page on which the pixel tag appears; the time (and length of time) the page containing the pixel tag was viewed; the type of browser that retrieved the pixel tag; and the identification number of any cookie previously placed by that server on your computer.

We use pixel tags, either provided by us or by our third-party advertisers, service providers and ad networks, to collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with our Site and use them in combination with our cookies to provide offers and information of interest to you. Pixel tags also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit the Site or other websites.

In addition, we use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes.

If you opt out of these technologies, you will continue to see advertising displayed on the Site, but the advertising may not be targeted to your interests.
