Non-personal information includes monitoring site pages that are visited or the amount of time the site is used.

If you visit this site using a mobile device, we collect additional non-personal information that may include the type/model of the mobile device that is browsing the site, your service provider and operating system.

The primary objective of this non-personal information we collect is to perform performance metrics that allow us to optimize the operation of this site.

We may use session and persistent cookies, session logs, spotlight ads/web beacons/GIF/pixel tags, banner ads or links and third-party click monitoring analysis tools (such as Adobe) to collect additional information or other non-personal information from site users. Section 7 - Methods of Collecting Information includes an explanation of the collection methods and how they work.

6. ¿ How do we use the additional non-personal information we collect?:

The non-personal information that is collected on Caribe.ford.com can be used for the purpose of:

  • Collecting additional data and statistics that help with the design of the page and identify popular offers
  • Measuring activity on the page and thus help in its optimization to better serve the needs and preferences of users
  • Providing the user with a better consumer experience
  • Developing new and better products, services and marketing materials

Caribe.ford.com uses non-personal information for the purpose of analyzing user experience while navigating this site. This analysis:

  • Is carried out jointly and does not identify you or your personal information
  • Can involve external service providers acting on behalf of Caribe.ford.com
  • Is carried out to improve our website and user experience
  • Can include the use of session and persistent cookies to track user's movement throughout this site and other Ford Motor Company websites or to follow other events within or between this and other Ford Motor Company pages

7. Methods for collecting information:

A “cookie” is a small text file that allows us to provide you with a visit to our page that is more pleasant and relevant to your needs. For example, cookies prevent you from registering each time you return to one of our pages. It also allows us to adapt the content or advertising of the page to fit your particular interests or preferences. There are several different types of cookies.

A “session cookie” is archived only in the functional memory of your computer (RAM) and lasts until you finish browsing the page. When you close your browser windows or when you turn off your computer the “session cookie” disappears forever.

A persistent cookie is archived on your computer's hard drive for a specific time. This can be, for example, a day, a week or ten years. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until a) they expire, b) they are replaced by new cookies, or c) you manually remove them. Most browsers can be configured not to accept “cookies”, but this may affect your access to certain functions or offers on websites.

This site can use click tracking analysis tools (such as Adobe) to generate click-through statistics.

Caribe.ford.com can use spotlight tags, web beacons/GIF/pixel tags, which are site instrumentation tools to help us determine, for example, if a page has been viewed or not, and if so, how many times. The informational emails we send can use tools (such as pixel tags or web beacons) to collect statistics and information on themselves to optimize the reader experience, such as determining how many of the emails are opened, if they are printed or shared, the type of device (e.g. mobile or PC) from which they were opened, and the city, state and county associated with the applicable IP address. In general, any electronic image seen as part of a web page, including advertising banners, can function as a web beacon.

When you visit our website, the server automatically generates a session log. We use session logs to help us determine how many people browse our site. Thus we can structure our pages in such a way that the most frequently visited content is easier to find. By following page visits, we can also determine if the information we provide is being used. The only information that is collected is the Internet Protocol (IP) address from whence you came, the website that referred you, the pages you visited and the dates and times of those visits.

Users can reach Caribe.ford.com through advertising banners, links or QR codes. Ads, links and QR codes placed by Caribe.ford.com use cookies or web beacons to measure their effectiveness, but do not collect user personal information.

This site can provide users with the opportunity to integrate into third-party social networking sites, and Caribe.ford.com can additionally monitor actions such as the amount of things that are liked on these sites or what you choose to share in a third party social network.
