What personally identifiable information does Auto Antiques collect from me?

How does Auto Antiques use my information?
Auto Antiques uses data provided to us from our server log files to provide aggregated information useful to our advertisers and business partners.
In order to provide services free of charge, we may display advertisements. By knowing a little about you, Auto Antiques is able to deliver more relevant advertisements and content, and hence better service, to you. In our role of delivering targeted advertisements, Auto Antiques plays the middleman. Advertisers give us an advertisement and tell us the type of audience they want to reach (for example, males over 35 years old). Auto Antiques takes the advertisement and displays it to users meeting that criteria. In this process, the advertiser never has access to individual account information. This kind of advertisement targeting is done with banner ads and pop-up ads.
Who is collecting information?
Auto Antiques collects information only through its server log files.
Please be aware that third party advertisers or web sites that have links on our site may collect personally identifiable information about you. The information practices of those web sites linked to us are not covered by this privacy statement.
Promotions that run on Auto Antiques may be sponsored by companies other than Auto Antiques or may be cosponsored by Auto Antiques and another company.
