Privacy Policy effective 1 January 2017

Kastim Pty Ltd ("FindCarToday") is the operator of findcar.today ("the Site") and the data controller. This Privacy Notice describes:

  • the personal information we collect and how we use that information

"Personal information" is information that can be associated with a specific person that could be used to identify that specific person, either from the data directly or from that data combined with other information that we have, or are likely to have, access to. Personal information doesn’t include anonymous or aggregated information that can no longer be used to identify a specific person.

We can change this Privacy Notice at any time by posting the updated terms to the Site. The updated terms automatically take effect 30 days after they are posted.

Important Information

Social Login
When you use social login:

  • If you sign into your social network account using the same email that you previously used to register for an account with us, you will access your existing account with us.
  • If you sign into your social network account using an email address that we don't recognise in our systems, a new account will be created in our systems for you.

You may use social login or regular sign in each time you login into your account with us. If you use regular sign in but a password has not been issued to you (because you registered through social login) you need to get a password through the password reset flow.

When you use social login the "keep me signed in" policies of the social network provider apply. We do not control those policies. For your safety we recommend that you:

  • Don't use social login if you are accessing our Services using a public or shared device
  • Visit your social network provider site to learn about their sign in policies and your options

Unwanted or threatening email
We do not tolerate abuse of our Services. You do not have permission to add other users to your mailing list, call or send SMS messages for commercial purposes, even if a user bought something from you, unless the user has given their explicit consent. Sending unwanted or threatening email and SMS messages is against our Terms of Conditions. To report spam or spoof emails please contact us.

Third party privacy practices
This Privacy Policy addresses only the use and disclosure of personal information we collect from you. If you disclose your information to others, or if you are directed to a third party website, their privacy notices and practices will apply.
We can't guarantee the privacy or security of your information once you provide it to a third party. You should check the privacy and security policies of your trading partner before entering into a transaction and choosing to share your information, even when dealing with buyers or sellers on our site.
