You may also choose to participate in a third-party application or feature (such as one of our Facebook or Twitter applications or a similar application or feature on a third-party website) through which you allow us to collect (or the third party to share) information about you, including Personal Information. In addition, we may receive information about you if other users of a third party web site give us access to their profiles and you are one of their "connections" or information about you is otherwise accessible through your "connections" web page, profile page, or similar page on a social networking or other third-party website or interactive service.

In those cases, we will apply this Privacy Policy to any Personal Information received, unless we have disclosed otherwise.


Your Choices and Access to Your Information
The Sites give you choices. If you choose to receive e-mails from us about products and other information, we strive to keep your Personal Information updated and accurate.

If you provided Lexus with Personal Information through the Owners section of Lexus.com, you may review and update that information by clicking on the Owners link on the homepage of Lexus.com, registering or logging in and then clicking on "Update Profile."

If you receive an e-mail, you may opt-out anytime by following the opt out instructions provided in the e-mail you receive.

If you are participating in a Program, you may be able to access and update the information you provided as part of your participation in the Program. Please see the section of the Sites concerning the specific Program to determine if you are able to access your information and how to do so.

In accordance with our routine record keeping, we may delete certain records that contain Personal Information you have submitted through the Sites. We are under no obligation to store such Personal Information indefinitely and disclaim any liability arising out of, or related to, the destruction of such Personal Information. In addition, you should be aware that it is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases without some residual data because of backups and other reasons.


Advertising/Behavioral Targeting; How to Opt-Out
Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis licenses technology to serve advertisements on its own Sites and within its content as that content is served across the Internet. In addition, Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis may use third-party ad networks, publishers and other entities to serve advertisements and third-party analytics vendors to evaluate and provide us with information about the use of the Sites and viewing of our content. We do not share Personal Information with these third parties, but ad network providers, data providers, publishers and other media related companies, and/or analytics service providers may set and access their own cookies, pixel tags and similar technologies on your Device and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, including Usage Information. We and they may target advertisements for products and services in which you might be interested based on your visits to both the Sites and other websites. We and they may use a variety of companies to serve advertisements.

If you prefer to not receive targeted advertising, you can opt out of some network advertising programs that use your information. To do so please visit the NAI Opt-Out Page. Please note that even if you choose to remove your information (opt-out), you will still see advertisements while you're browsing online. However the advertisements you see may be less relevant to you and your interests. Additionally, many network advertising programs allow you to view and manage the interest categories they have compiled from your online browsing activities. These interest categories help determine the types of targeted advertisements you may receive. The NAI Opt-Out Page provides a tool that identifies its member companies that have cookies on your browser and provides links to those companies.


Children's Privacy
The Sites are not intended for children under the age of 13. Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children that young. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit your e-mail address or any other Personal Information to us through the Sites.


Security of Your Information
We use certain reasonable security measures to help protect your Personal Information. However, no electronic data transmission or storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you use the Sites and provide us with your information at your own risk.

Beware of Phishing Scams: There have been noticeable increases in the number of suspicious e-mails claiming that the e-mail recipient has won a Lexus lottery or other promotion. Sometimes the e-mail claims that the recipient has won a new Lexus IS. In order to claim the prize, the e-mail asks that Personal Information be sent to a Hotmail™ or Yahoo™ e-mail address. Samples of these hoax e-mails can be found at this website.

This type of e-mail solicitation is known commonly as a "phishing" scam, with the primary objective being to obtain one's personal information. This information can then be utilized to steal a person's identity. For example, a "Lexus Lottery" phishing scam is often sent from Chinese (.cn), German (.de) or British (.co.uk) addresses, but can originate from anywhere and look very official even to the most savvy of Internet users. Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis will never ask you to send passwords, login names, Social Security numbers, or other personal information through e-mail or U.S. mail, fax or text message. If you receive an e-mail or letter by U.S. mail, fax or text message from Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis asking you to update your credit card information, do not respond: this is a phishing scam. Recipients of suspicious e-mail like this should delete the message from their inbox and, if possible, update their e-mail filter settings to block e-mails from the e-mail address being used. The Federal Trade Commission and the Antiphishing Workgroup are also good sources of information about these types of security threats and how they may be reported to the authorities.


Link to Other Websites
The Sites include links to other websites, such as the website for Lexus Financial Services. These websites are not under our control, even though they may use the Lexus name or logo on their site through an agreement with us. Such other websites do not necessarily follow our Privacy Policy, and may place their own cookies on your Device. This practice is standard on the web, and we do not control cookies or web beacons that may be placed on your Device by third parties whose advertising or links appear on our Sites. These websites may have their own privacy and information security policy and terms and conditions. Visitors should consult the other websites' privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties. To reach the privacy policy for Lexus Financial Services, please click here.


Consent to Processing and Transfer of Information
The Sites are operated in the United States. Given that we are an international business, our use of your information necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. If you are located in the European Union, Canada or elsewhere outside of the United States, please be aware that information we collect may be transferred to and processed in the United States. By using the Sites, or providing us with any information, you consent to the collection, processing, maintenance and transfer of such information in and to the United States and other applicable territories in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as or equivalent to those in the country where you reside and/or are a citizen.


Changes
Please note, we may change information on the Sites and/or this Privacy Policy, at any time without prior notice to you, and any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Privacy Policy on the Sites. However, Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis will use your Personal Information in a manner consistent with the Privacy Policy in effect at the time you submitted the information, unless you consent to the new or revised policy.
