Cookie Policy

By using or accessing the Website, you are consenting to WowAutos’s use of Cookies as follows:

This policy helps to explain the occasions when and why cookies may be sent to visitors to the Website (referred to in this policy as “we”, “us” or “our”).
“Cookies” are text-only pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual’s hard drive or other website-browsing equipment for record-keeping purposes.
Cookies allow the Website to remember important information that will make your use of the site more convenient. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a randomly generated unique number or other value.
Certain cookies may be used on the Site regardless of whether you are logged in to your account or not. Like most websites, we use cookies for a variety of purposes in order to improve your online experience, for analytics and for marketing, but specifically we use Cookies on the Website for the following purposes:
1. Analytical Purposes: We may use Cookies to analyze user activity in order to improve the Website.
For example, using Cookies we can look at aggregate patterns like the average number of searches that users perform. We may use such analysis to gain insights about how to improve the functionality and user experience of the Website.
2. Your Preferences: We may use Cookies to store certain user preferences on our Website. For example, we may store the recent searches you have performed in a Cookie so that we can allow you to easily repeat those searches when you return to our Website.
3. Marketing: We may use Cookies from third-party partners such as Google and Facebook for marketing purposes. These Cookies allow us to display WowAutos promotional material to you on other sites you visit across the Internet. WowAutos may also share information about your behavior on the Site with third parties (including operators of third-party websites and/or social networking sites) in order to show you targeted advertisements and other content that has been customized for you.
4. Referral Tracking: We may use Cookies to associate user activity with the third party website that referred the user to our Website, or to associate user activity that WowAutos referred to a third party website. These third party partner websites receive credit for the activity of users they refer to our Website, or give WowAutos credit for the activity of users referred to such third party websites. We do not share any personal information or information about individual user activities with these partner entities.
Session Cookies are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the Website.
Persistent Cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). When we use session cookies to track the total number of visitors to our Website, this is done on an anonymous aggregate basis (as cookies do not in themselves carry any personal data).
We may also employ cookies so that we remember your computer when it is used to return to the Website to help customize your WowAutos web experience.
We may associate personal information with a cookie file in those instances. Use the options in your web browser if you do not wish to receive a cookie or if you wish to set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie.
