Privacy Policy

We gather certain types of information about the visitors to MazdaRaceway.com, and we believe our visitors should fully understand how we obtain and use that information.

This Privacy Statement discloses what information we gather on our Web site and how we use it. (Accordingly, this Privacy Statement is not applicable to information that we obtain through any other business activities.)

If you have questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Statement, you should contact us though our Contact Us form.

Your Personal Information

The submission by you to us of personally identifiable information (e.g., your name, your street address, your e-mail address, your telephone number) is required in order for you to receive services, products or information you request from either us or companies with which we do business. (We refer to such personally identifiable information, as well as any other information that you voluntarily provide to us about yourself that we combine with your personally identifiable information (but not your city, state or ZIP code), as your “Personal Information.”) Your Personal Information will be shared between us and those companies, and may also be disclosed to other entities who work with us or those companies to fulfill your request.

In certain locations on MazdaRaceway.com where we obtain your Personal Information we may include a “check box” (or another process) for the purpose of soliciting your consent to receive special offers and/or other information from other entities selected by us. By either “checking” the box, or leaving the check box “checked” (or otherwise providing your consent), you are choosing to receive promotional and marketing communications from those other entities, and you are consenting to our providing your Personal Information to those other entities. You may withdraw your consent by (i) if you are a member, modifying your Membership account profile, (ii) by sending a request to us through our Contact Us form, or (iii) by sending us a request by mail to P.O. Box 2078, Monterey, California 93942, attention: Customer Service. However, withdrawing your consent will not affect the rights of the other entities that previously received your Personal Information to continue to send communications to you.

In addition, we may send you communications related to our products or services or those of third parties. However, you will have the opportunity at any time to “opt-out” of receiving future promotional and marketing communications from us either (i) by following the instructions located at the bottom of any e-mail we send you, (ii) by sending a request to us through our Contact Us form, or (iii) by sending us a request by mail to P.O. Box 2078, Monterey, California 93942: attention: Customer Service.

If you do not give your consent, either in the manner described in the preceding paragraphs or in another manner, your Personal Information will not be shared by us with other entities, except as set forth above or as follows: We may disclose whatever information we may have or know about you, including your Personal Information, without first notifying you or obtaining your consent, (a) to third-party service providers who provide services to us, or who assist us to improve our data or our services or to better understand their value to our visitors or to the companies with which we do business; or (b) to other third parties if we determine that disclosure of such information: (i) is or may be required by law or legal process, or is requested by a law enforcement agency; or (ii) is or may be reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of our company, Sports Car Racing Association of the Monterey Peninsula dba Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, our visitors or other individuals or entities.

We may use your Personal Information to customize or enhance your experience on MazdaRaceway.com (including the display of advertisements) and communications related to our products or services or those of third parties. In addition, we may use other information we may have about you (such as your IP address) or your use of MazdaRaceway.com (such as which pages you have visited) for the purpose of facilitating the serving of targeted ads.

Your California Privacy Rights

Pursuant to Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code, residents of California have the right to request from a business, with whom the California resident has an established business relationship, certain information with respect to the types of personal information the business shares with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes and the identities of the third parties with whom the business has shared such information during the immediately preceding calendar year. To exercise your rights, you may make one request each year by emailing us at media@mazdaraceway.com. Your request should specify your full name and the e-mail address you used when submitting personal information to us.

Your Zip Code and ZIP Code Cookies

When you visit our Web site we may assign a ZIP code to you based on your IP address. After we determine your ZIP code we serve a “cookie” to you that includes your ZIP code. (“Cookies” are described below.) That cookie permits us to recognize your ZIP code when you use our features that are ZIP code-dependent, or upon your return to our Web site. You have the opportunity to change your ZIP code at appropriate times during your visit to our Web site if you want to get information for a different ZIP code; changing your ZIP code automatically updates your ZIP code cookie.

We may share your ZIP code with third parties, including third-party advertisers that display advertisements on our Web site.

Other Cookies

“Cookies” are small data files that are written to your computer or other device through which you many access MazdaRaceway.com by a Web site or by third parties when you visit that Web site. A cookie file contains information such as a user ID that a site may use to track the pages you’ve visited. Cookies served by us don’t permit us to read data from your computer or other device, or to read cookie files created by other Web sites.

We use cookies in many ways, including the following:

First Visits: When you first visited MazdaRaceway.com, we served a cookie to you. This cookie resides permanently on your computer or other device (unless you chose to delete it) and enables us to track visitor activity across our Web site.

Applications: Whenever you use certain applications on MazdaRaceway.com, we may serve a “session cookie” to you, which is a cookie that is only used by us during your use of that application. In addition, for some applications we may serve a cookie to you that has a longer expiration date. These cookies help us manage our delivery to you of application information and related content.

Third-party Advertisements: Our advertisers, and the companies that facilitate the delivery of their advertisements on MazdaRaceway.com, set and access cookies and other tracking technologies on your computer that facilitate the delivery and administration of such advertising. Other companies’ use of their cookies and other tracking technologies is subject to their own privacy policies and not this one.

Login via Facebook Account

If you use your Facebook account to log into MazdaRaceway.com, Facebook may collect information about your visit. This Privacy Statement does not apply to Facebook’s collection or use of that information.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect your Personal Information, both during transmission to us and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.

If you have any questions about security on MazdaRaceway.com, please use our Contact Us form.

Surveys

Occasionally we conduct visitor surveys to better target our content to our audience or for the benefit of third parties with whom we do business. Accordingly, sometimes the aggregate survey results are shared with our advertisers and partners. We never share any survey information about any identified individual with any third party unless that individual consents.

E-mail this Page to a Friend

MazdaRaceway.com may include a feature that permits visitors to electronically forward that page to someone else by clicking on a link. The sender must provide his or her e-mail address, as well as that of the recipient. The sender’s information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the page. Neither the sender’s information nor the recipient’s information is used for any other purpose.

Links to Other Web Sites

MazdaRaceway.com may contain links to other Web sites not operated by us. However, this Privacy Statement only applies to MazdaRaceway.com and the information we collect thereon, and we are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of any other Web sites.

Additional Disclosure under the California Online Privacy Protection Act

We do not collect personally identifiable information about our visitors’ online activities over time and across third-party Web sites or online services. Therefore, “do not track” signals transmitted from Web browsers do not apply to MazdaRaceway.com, and we do not alter any of our data collection and use practices upon receipt of such a signal. Where a visitor or Web browser transmits a “do not track” signal, third parties that place cookies and collect information on MazdaRaceway.com will be able to see that such a signal has been transmitted.

Changes to this Privacy Statement

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion and at any time, to change this Privacy Statement. Changes will be effective when made and the updated Privacy Statement is posted on MazdaRaceway.com; provided, however, that (i) information collected prior to the time any change is posted will be used according to the provisions of this Privacy Statement that applied at the time the information was collected, and (ii) no such change shall be applicable to any dispute between you and us that arises prior to the time such change is effective.
