MAACO and its parents, subsidiaries, franchisees and affiliates, and their respective shareholders, directors, officers, employees, agents, successors and assigns (collectively, “MAACO”) is very sensitive to and respects the privacy of visitors to the MAACO website and will use our best efforts to protect the privacy of such on-line visitors. The MAACO server automatically recognizes and gathers the domain name, but not the email address (where possible) of visitors to our website. MAACO also gathers any information that you volunteer to our website or that you volunteer at our franchised or company owned locations, such as survey information and/or site registrations or email addresses, personal addresses, and names (collectively, “Personal Information”). This Personal Information may be shared by MAACO with its affiliates (including, but not limited to, Meineke Car Care Centers, LLC, 1-800 Radiator & A/C and Drive N Style vehicle appearance and enhancement services) and their respective franchisees, and with vendors that help access and manage the information, but in all instances the information will be used only for the purposes enunciated in this privacy policy. Such purposes include (1) to help MAACO better understand visitors’ use of the website; (2) to respond to specific requests from visitors; (3) to provide notices to visitors, such as marketing information, discount coupons and new product offerings; and (4) to protect the security or integrity of the site.

In addition, certain Personal Information may be submitted via online forms on the MAACO website necessary to provide services offered by the site. After you have entered Personal Information into a form or data field on the website, MAACO may use certain identifying technologies to allow that web site to “remember” your personal preferences, such as sections of the website that you use frequently. MAACO may also use this Personal Information for other business purposes, such as to offer you the opportunity to receive notices regarding MAACO’s products or services, to invite you to participate in surveys about our products, or to notify you about special promotions. Other uses of Personal Information include internal review of the number of visitors to the website, but only in aggregate and non-personally identifiable form.

MAACO takes reasonable steps to maintain appropriate physical, technical and administrative security to help prevent loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure or modification of Personal Information.

Please note, however, that certain information may be required in order for you to obtain services from a MAACO Center and/or participate in coupon downloads, contests and other promotions. Federal and state regulations require that we store certain customer information for specific periods of time. In order to comply with these requirements, we may be unable to delete your information until these retention periods are met.

These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their names, addresses and other personal information without your permission. If MAACO becomes aware of a child under the age of 18 attempting to register on this website, MAACO will not accept the registration. Once MAACO becomes aware of a child under the age of 18 providing Personal Information, we will attempt to delete that information.
