Southern States Collision has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firmest commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices.
Information Gathered About You
Our optional mailings (newsletters, service reminders etc) require users to give us their email address. The customer's contact information is used to contact the visitors only when necessary, such as additions of new offers to our site or any major changes of policy or services! Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.
Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor our visitor's experience at our site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences.
From time to time we may run contests or sweepstakes on our site in which we ask visitors for contact information (like their email address) and demographic information (like their zip code or area code). The visitor's contact information is used to determine the winner and ensure compliance with the contest rules.
