Does Best Auto Solutions Use Cookies?

Best Auto Solutions does, in a limited manner, use a technology called "cookies". A cookie is a small piece of text that you can agree to place on your computer's hard drive. In most cases, you can set your web browser to prompt you when a cookie request is being made from a web page, such as the parts web site, and you have the option to accept or not. If you accept or do not reject the cookie, then your browser adds the text in a small file, which will expire in 90-days. Accepting cookies in no way gives us access to your computer or any personal information about you. It is merely a method of storing information to improve your online experience. It will assist us in making your site visit easier and more productive. If you choose to reject the cookie, you can still browse our store but will be unable to use the shopping cart to buy merchandise. The BAS Auto Parts Plus shopping cart cannot function properly without cookies enabled so that the necessary information to process your order and provide the necessary safeguards is transmitted to us. Technically, cookies are harmless, occupying just a few bytes on your hard drive. Note that personal information is often contained in or linked to a cookie (such as email address, zip code, etc.). The only time that we receive such information is if you volunteer it by typing in the information. We will not share any personally identifiable information provided by this cookie with any third party except as we may require to perform services on our behalf (as explained below) or for our own internal business use. The following describes how our website uses cookies and how we provide you with a more personalized experience:

Marketing:

We publish special promotions, pricing promises, brand name and various other messages on the internet to help consumers find our web sites. To determine which method is most effective, a cookie is used to capture which method was used to find our web site. The information included in the cookie is limited to only the message identifier.

Pixel tags and cookies are used in those email messages and on our website to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising, how our visitors use our site and to enable us to provide more focused and subsequent email marketing communications to you.

Does Best Auto Solutions Track My Visits?

At Best Auto Solutions, our site may also gather information about which areas of our site receive the most visits and user visit history. This is done by the placement of a cookie on your computer. Additionally, we send site metrics information to a third-party service provider using cookies and web beacons, who then aggregates the captured data. The type of data captured includes; search engine referral, traffic driven by ad banners or other online promotions, how visitors navigate around the site, and the most popular pages. We also track technical information, such as the browser version and operating system of visitors, to deliver a better site design for our visitors. The data is analyzed, generating several different types of reports showing different views on the data collected. We do not capture any information about any individual's use of the site - rather only aggregate data is captured. Our third-party metrics provider is obligated to strict confidentiality restrictions and is not permitted to sell or use our dealer’s aggregate site data for any purpose other than for providing us with the metrics information. We do not share, sell or provide any of this aggregate data with outside companies, with the exception noted above. Furthermore, we do not track where you go on the Internet.
