GM may obtain information about you and your vehicle in a number of ways: For example, our websites, Business Reply Cards, sweepstakes entries, test-drive incentive applications, surveys, vehicle sales records, and other public sources. While you may use GM's websites to learn about our products and services without disclosing any information about you or your vehicle, we may ask you to provide us with personal information including:
*contact information (name, address, city, state and ZIP code, e-mail address, and telephone number)
*vehicle information (vehicle identification number (VIN), make, model, model year, selling dealer, date of purchase or lease, etc.)
*demographic information (age range, marital status, household composition, etc.)
*non-credit-related marketing profile information (when you plan to purchase or lease; the vehicle in which you're interested, etc.)
*relationships you have with GM not related to your vehicle (i.e., GM Card or OnStar)
Business Reply Cards and sweepstakes entries you complete at an event or in response to a marketing mailing we send may also ask you to answer some of these same questions so we can tailor what we send to you to your specific interests.
In limited circumstances, you may be asked to provide GM with your social security number. For example, if you win a sweepstakes or receive compensation from GM, GM is required to include your social security number on government tax forms. GM maintains technical, administrative, and physical safeguards designed to protect the confidentiality of your social security number, and to prohibit the unlawful disclosure of and restrict access to this information.
In addition, our GM affiliates, GM dealers, GM merchandise licensees, and other sources such as those that provide lists of potential vehicle purchasers or current owners may give the information they have regarding you or your vehicle to us so that we may serve your needs better.
