What information does Colorado Auto Sales LLC 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 lead management system. The lead management 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.
Colorado Auto Sales LLC provides for limited employee access to the lead management system. Lead management is a secured application that can only be accessed by entering a valid user name 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 lead management system and mark your customer record as ”closed”, 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.
Colorado Auto Sales LLC 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 dealer 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. 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. The use of the personal information is limited to being contacted by the ISG as described above, or, for obtaining financing if you request.
We publish special promotions, pricing promises, brand name and various other messages on the internet to help consumers find our web sites. In order 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 Colorado Auto Sales LLC track my visits?
How is email used on Colorado Auto Sales LLC?
A customer provides an email address to Colorado Auto Sales LLC in two instances:
Price Quote – if a customer clicks on “price quote”, an email address is requested. In accordance with various state laws, a specific price quote can only be offered to a unique individual – not to the public at large. In order to provide you with a price quote on the site, you must first identify yourself as an individual by entering your email address.
Contact Form – if a customer wishes to be contacted by an ISG, the customer completes a form that includes a request for their email address.
In both cases where an email address is requested, the customer voluntarily submits their email address in order to receive follow up information, a specific price quote, or establish a relationship with an ISG. Each email you receive from us will contain an opt-out link which can be used in the event that you no longer wish to receive communications from us.
Additionally, you can email or call the ISG using the information provided in their first email contact to you. There are opt-in links on our websites should you wish to receive promotional communications from us in the future. All email communications contain a link that can be used to opt-out from further email communication.

Colorado Auto Sales LLC Security Statement
At Colorado Auto Sales LLC, we’ve taken important measures to keep the information you share with us safe and secure.
Colorado Auto Sales LLC 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 Colorado Auto Sales LLC 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.
