OUR SECURITY PROCEDURES
Our dealership uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to protect your personal information provided on credit applications and where credit card information is required. SSL encrypts or codes this information as it travels over the Internet, and is then decoded by our dealership and its business partners who facilitate your transactions on this web site.
We do not read personal communications. We do not give out your telephone number, credit card information, or screen names, unless authorized to do so or as required by law.
HOW DO I KNOW WHEN MY INFORMATION IS PROTECTED?
You can tell if you are using a Web browser that supports SSL if a "key" or "padlock" icon appears in one of the lower corners of your screen (For example, when using Internet Explorer you will see a padlock). When you enter a secure page, the key is "un-broken" or the lock is closed. This means that your communications are now secure, encrypted, and cannot be read by non-authorized sources. Another sign that you are in a secure transaction mode is a URL that begins with "https:". When you see any of these symbols on your browser, you know that your information is protected and you can interact with the website with confidence.
SECURITY AND APPLYING FOR A LOAN
When applying for an auto loan on our dealership web site, your credit application is sent directly to the dealership that you have chosen. The credit application is securely collected and transmitted using SSL technology that encrypts your personal information as it travels over the Internet. (Please see our security statement above for further details.)
