We also collect information provided to us by consumers in purchase requests submitted through our Website or our authorized vendors’ websites (”Purchase Request Information”).

FRAMED SECTIONS OF OUR WEBSITE
I MOTORZ maintains relationships with outside service providers for some of the products and services offered on our Website. Certain of these providers are found on our Finance, New Car Quote, or other pages. The information these providers make available to you may be presented in a ’framed” format, where the I MOTORZ border will surround the pages served by the service providers, or by directly linking the user to the vendors’ websites. In either case, the provider is prominently identified. Please be aware that any information you provide on such pages is provided directly to those providers and is subject to their security and privacy policies. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of these outside providers because their privacy policy and practices may differ from ours. Our content may be displayed on or through third-party websites through the use of inline frames or other framing techniques. We may collect personal information in such framed pages or content located on or provided by third-party websites. When you submit personal information to us in this manner, it is treated as personal information under this Policy. The collection and use of personal information by the third-party website directly (i.e., outside of our content framed pages) is governed separately by the privacy policy of those websites.
