Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through MotorWorld Lexus public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: MotorWorld Lexus does not read any of your private online communications.

MotorWorld Lexus encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from MotorWorld Lexus so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. MotorWorld Lexus is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the MotorWorld Lexus and MotorWorld Lexus family of Web sites.

Use of your Personal Information
MotorWorld Lexus collects and uses your personal information to operate the MotorWorld Lexus Web site and deliver the services you have requested. MotorWorld Lexus also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from MotorWorld Lexus and its affiliates. MotorWorld Lexus may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

Personally identifiable information generated by MotorWorld Lexus website forms will be used and tracked by Lexus Corporate. Personally identifiable information will be shared with Lexus Corporate and may be used by Lexus Corporate for their own marketing purposes.

MotorWorld Lexus does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. MotorWorld Lexus may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, MotorWorld Lexus may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to MotorWorld Lexus, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

MotorWorld Lexus does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

MotorWorld Lexus keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within MotorWorld Lexus, in order to determine what MotorWorld Lexus services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within MotorWorld Lexus to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

MotorWorld Lexus Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on MotorWorld Lexus or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of MotorWorld Lexus; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of MotorWorld Lexus, or the public.

Use of Cookies
The MotorWorld Lexus Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize MotorWorld Lexus pages, or register with MotorWorld Lexus site or services, a cookie helps MotorWorld Lexus to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same MotorWorld Lexus Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the MotorWorld Lexus features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the MotorWorld Lexus services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information
MotorWorld Lexus secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. MotorWorld Lexus secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Beware of Phishing Scams: There have been noticeable increases in the number of suspicious e-mails claiming that the e-mail recipient has won a Lexus lottery or other promotion. Sometimes the e-mail claims that the recipient has won a new Lexus IS. In order to claim the prize, the e-mail asks that Personal Information be sent to a Hotmail™ or Yahoo™ e-mail address. Samples of these hoax e-mails can be found at this website.

This type of e-mail solicitation is known commonly as a "phishing" scam, with the primary objective being to obtain one's personal information. This information can then be utilized to steal a person's identity. For example, a "Lexus Lottery" phishing scam is often sent from Chinese (.cn), German (.de) or British (.co.uk) addresses, but can originate from anywhere and look very official even to the most savvy of Internet users. Lexus will never ask you to send passwords, login names, Social Security numbers, or other personal information through e-mail or U.S. mail, fax or text message. If you receive an e-mail or letter by U.S. mail, fax or text message from Lexus asking you to update your credit card information, do not respond: this is a phishing scam. Recipients of suspicious e-mail like this should delete the message from their inbox and, if possible, update their e-mail filter settings to block e-mails from the e-mail address being used. The Federal Trade Commission and the Antiphishing Workgroup are also good sources of information about these types of security threats and how they may be reported to the authorities.

Your Acceptance of Our Privacy Statement
By using this Website, you signify your acceptance of this Privacy Statement. If you do not agree with the manner in which we handle data as described in this Statement, please do not use this site.

 Changes to this Statement
MotorWorld Lexus will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. MotorWorld Lexus encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how MotorWorld Lexus is protecting your information.
