Privacy Policy

Manly is committed to respecting the privacy rights of our customers and all visitors to our web site. We take this matter very seriously and have instituted many policies and procedures to ensure that your privacy rights are safeguarded. The following outlines Manly’s privacy policies and details the measures we have taken to protect your privacy while providing you with a unique and rewarding online shopping experience.

Our Promise

Manly provides you with a safe, no-hassle method of researching, shopping, and purchasing a vehicle. In this regard, we address the issues of security, full-disclosure, fair and honest pricing, and provide a thorough and specific Privacy Policy.

This privacy statement covers the site www.manlyhonda.com and subdirectories. If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, please contact our store General Manager at the phone number listed on the website.

What information does Manly collect?

As part of the vehicle research and purchase process, information such as your e-mail address, name, and contact telephone numbers will be requested. This information will be used solely as described below. When entering information on this web site, it is transferred automatically to our Customer Relationship Management software, CONNECT, powered by Vinsolutions. The CONNECT system will automatically record the information and send it to an associate so that your inquiry may be answered promptly by a qualified representative near you.

Manly provides for limited employee access to the CONNECT system. CONNECT is a secured application that can only be accessed by entering a valid username and password. Once you have expressed interest in being contacted, the associate will respond through a personalized email or phone call. After the initial email contact, there may be several points of communication between you and the associate by either telephone or email. At any point in the relationship you have the option of indicating by either telephone or email that you no longer wish to be contacted by the associate. In this event, the associate will access the CONNECT system and mark your customer record as “lost: Requested no contact”, at which time, you are removed from “active” status.

If you express interest in financing a vehicle, additional information related to creditworthiness will be requested by our dealership. This credit information will treated in accordance with our financial information Privacy Notice and only be used in compliance with applicable federal and state law.

Manly Security Statement

Our Security Procedures

The security of customer information is very important to us and we take a number of steps to safeguard it. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard non-public personal information about you. We limit access to personal and account information to those employees and agents who assist us in providing products and services to you. Employees who fail to follow our established standards are subject to disciplinary action. We also require third parties to whom we disclose nonpublic personal information to adhere to this Privacy Policy and to establish information security procedures.

Secure Technology

Manly uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to protect your personal information provided on credit applications and where credit card information is required. SSL encrypts or codes this information as it travels over the Internet, and is then decoded by Manly and its business partners who facilitate your transactions on this web site.

We do not read personal communications. We do not give out your telephone number, credit card information, or screen names, unless authorized to do so or as required by law.

How do I know when my information is protected?

You can tell if you are using a Web browser that supports SSL if a “key” or “padlock” icon appears in one of the lower corners of your screen (For example, when using Internet Explorer you will see a padlock). When you enter a secure page, the key is “un-broken” or the lock is closed. This means that your communications are now secure, encrypted, and cannot be read by non-authorized sources. Another sign that you are in a secure transaction mode is a URL that begins with “https:”. When you see any of these symbols on your browser, you know that your information is protected and you can interact with the website with confidence.

Security and Applying for a Loan

When applying for an auto loan on the Manly web site, your credit application is sent directly to the dealership that you have chosen. The credit application is securely collected and transmitted using SSL technology that encrypts your personal information as it travels over the Internet. (Please see our security statement above for further details.)
