the personal information we collect about you
We collect personal information that you voluntarily provide to us by e-mail, online bookings, via webinquiries, Apps, communications with our call center, or by other methods of contact or communication. By collecting such personal information, we are (among other things) better positioned to assess various options, potential interest in our range of services as well as various services, products and/or protection plans offered by others. With the personal information you provide us, we are better positioned to assess your other potential needs or interests and/or to provide you with promotionals, special offerings, discounts or other information that may be of interest to you. The personal information that you may provide, and that we may collect, include your name, email address, phone number, and address.
We may also collect other information that cannot be readily used to identify you. For example, our web server may automatically store your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address when you visit or log onto our website, the e-mail addresses of those who contact or communicate with us via e-mail, and the aggregate information about what pages on our Site that you visit or access.
