GENERAL SHARING
Below is a description of ways in which we share your information and the purposes for which we share your information that are common across all of our services. To learn about additional sharing of your personal information for each service, please refer to the relevant Service Privacy Policy.

In each case, we may share your personal information with the following parties for the following purposes:

We would share personal information with third parties if we undergo bankruptcy or liquidation, in the course of such proceedings;

  • to prevent harm: we will share personal information if we believe it is necessary to detect, investigate, prevent, or take action against illegal activities, fraud, or situation(s) involving potential threats to the rights, property, or personal safety of any person;

  • for legal purposes: we will share personal information where we are legally required to do so such as in response to court orders, law enforcement, or legal process, including for national security purposes; to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights, as required to enforce our terms of service or other contracts; to defend against legal claims or demands; or to comply with the requirements of any applicable law; and

  • with your consent: apart from the reasons identified above, we may request your permission to share your personal information for a specific purpose. We will notify you and request consent before you provide the personal information or before the personal information you have already provided is shared for such purpose.


INFORMATION SECURITY
To protect your personal information from loss, theft, and unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, we have implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures including 256-bit encryption, access controls, and secure development processes. Unfortunately, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure or impenetrable.


CHILDREN’S PRIVACY
Our products and services are not intended to be used by children. We do not knowingly solicit or collect any personal information about children under the age of sixteen (16) nor knowingly allow children to order our products, communicate with us, or use any of our online services or mobile applications. If a child has provided us with personal information, a parent or guardian of that child may contact us to have that information deleted from our records. If you believe that we might have any information from a child under the age of sixteen (16), please tell us using the Contact Information listed below. We will take all reasonable steps to delete the child’s information as soon as possible except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required by law.

YOUR RIGHTS AS A RESIDENT OF NEVADA
We do not sell personal information collected through our website for monetary consideration. Under Nevada law, you may opt-out of future sales of your personal information collected through our website for monetary consideration.

YOUR RIGHTS AND CHOICES AS A RESIDENT OF CALIFORNIA
Under California law, consumers residing in California are granted certain rights with respect to the personal information about them that we collect and sell. These rights include: to access or delete the personal information that we have collected about them, to opt-out of the sale of their personal information by us to a third party, and not to be discriminated against for exercising these rights.

Right to Access: You have the right to request what personal information we have collected, used, shared for a business purpose, and sold about you within the preceding 12 months. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will disclose to you the information we have collected about you.

Right to Deletion: You have the right to request the deletion of your personal information that we collect about you, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies under applicable law.

Right to Opt-Out: You have the right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information by us to third parties for monetary or other valuable consideration. Each of the individual Service Privacy Policies sets out whether or not we sell personal information as such action is defined under California law in connection with such service. In the event that we do sell your personal information, you may opt-out. Across all of our digital properties, our collection and sharing of personal information through the use of certain cookies may be deemed a sale under the California Consumer Privacy Act. To exercise your right to opt-out of the sharing of your personal information to advertising partners through cookies, please use our OneTrust Cookie Manager.

Right to Non-Discrimination: You have the right to not receive discriminatory treatment if and when you exercise your rights to access, delete, or opt-out. For example, this means we cannot deny goods or services to you or charge different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties, due to you having exercised your rights.

Exercising Your Rights

How to make requests:
To exercise your right to access, correct, or delete your personal information, you may submit a request through our online form here, via email at vcuscare@volvocars.com, or by calling us at 1(800) 550-5658. You may only make a request for access twice within a 12-month period.

To exercise your right to opt-out of the sharing of your personal information to advertising partners, which may be a sale under the California Consumer Privacy Act, please use our OneTrust Cookie Manager.

Authorized Agent:
If you are a resident of California, an authorized agent may make a verifiable consumer rights request related to your personal information. If you are an authorized agent making a request on behalf of a consumer, you must provide us with signed permission by the consumer that you are authorized to act on behalf of that consumer. If you are a legal entity, you must also provide us with documentation of your registration with the California Secretary of State.

Verification:
The online form for access, correction, and deletion requests contains the information that we need to verify your identity and review your request. For requests submitted via telephone or email, you must provide us with sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected the personal information and describe your request with sufficient detail to allow us to properly evaluate and respond to it. If we are not able to verify your identity for access and deletion requests with the information provided, we may ask you for additional pieces of information.

Timing:
We aim to respond to your request for access, correction, or deletion within the time required by applicable law. If we need more time to respond to your request, we will let you know of the reason and the extension period in writing.


DO NOT TRACK
We respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. DNT is a preference you can set on your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. You can enable or disable DNT by visiting the preferences or settings page of your web browser. For more information, visit: https://www.eff.org/issues/do-not-track.
