The EZ Cartrade LLC. is the sole owner of the information collected on the Site and the Blog. We collect
personally identifiable information from our users at several different points for both web properties.
In order to use certain features of the Site or the Blog, such as posting a comment or subscribing to email
updates, you must complete a form in which you provide us with your contact information (such as your
name and email address). We use this information to contact you about the services in which you have
We may give you the option of providing basic demographic information such as income, gender, and
education to us. We strongly encourage you to share this information with us so we can provide our
community with a better, more useful experience on the Site and the Blog. Providing any such
demographic information is entirely voluntary and is identified as such at the time of data collection.
Surveys and Contests
From time to time we may offer you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on the Site or the
Blog. If you participate, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation
in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to
disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name
and address) and demographic information (such as your age and postal code).
We use this information to gather feedback about our sites’ features, notify contest winners, and/or to send
participants an email newsletter.
We may use a third-party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; any such company will be
prohibited from using our users’ personally identifiable information for any other purpose. We will not
share the personally identifiable information you provide through a contest or survey with other third
parties unless we give you prior notice.
In an effort to foster community and conversation, we provide convenient links to major social networks
Communications from Us
If you disclose your email address to us, we will occasionally send you information on new Blog features,
services, special deals, and promotions. Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to
receive these types of communications. Please see “Choice and Opt-Out” below for more information.
If you wish to subscribe to our email newsletters, we will use your name and email address to send the
newsletter to you. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide you a way to unsubscribe with each
newsletter we send.
Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we may send you a welcoming email
and/or a confirmation email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in
response to your inquiries, to provide specific services you request, and to manage any other feature or
service under which you are identified by your email address. We will communicate with you by email
and/or telephone, in accordance with your wishes.
We may store information that we collect through cookies, server log files, tracking images, and third party
sources to create a profile of your preferences. We may tie your personally identifiable information to
information in the profile in order to provide you with tailored promotions and marketing offers and to
improve the content of the Blog for you.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
We share aggregated demographic information about our visitors with our partners, affiliates, and
advertisers. This information does not identify individual users; rather, it provides our partners, affiliates,
and advertisers with a description of our user base as a whole. Partners may include third parties with
whom we have or may have a business relationship, such as sponsors.
We share personally identifiable information with select third parties:
• Email service providers. We use third parties to provide email delivery services. When you sign
up for a newsletter, subscribe to a feed, or otherwise provide your email address, we will share
your email address and certain elements of your profile as necessary with the appropriate service
provider for the sole purpose of providing that service.
• Infrastructure providers. We use third parties to host the Blog and keep it maintained and
backed up. Personally identifiable information we store on third-party systems and networks is
always under our control and access to it is secured in a manner consistent with good information
technology practices and procedures.
• Fulfillment providers. We use third parties to manage, ship and deliver any physical goods which
we may, from time to time, give away or offer for sale. Any personally identifiable information,
such as your name and address, will be used by these service providers solely for the purpose of
fulfilling orders and delivering goods.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we
believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court
order, or legal process served on us.
Choice and Opt-Out
We provide you with the opportunity to opt out of having your personally identifiable information used for
certain purposes when we ask for this information. For example, if you register for an account with us but
do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on our
If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt out of
receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication. Any such optout instructions may take up to ten (10) working days to process, during which time you may continue to
receive newsletters and promotional communications.
You will be notified when your personal information is collected by any third party that is not our agent or
service provider, so you can make an informed choice as to whether or not to share your information with
Log Files and Analytics
As is typical of professionally managed websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it
in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service
provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data for each
visitor to the Site or the Blog.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Site
and the Blog, to track visitors’ movements around our web properties, and to gather demographic
information about our user base as a whole.
Generally, we do not link this automatically collected data to personally identifiable information. IP
addresses are, however, tied to personally identifiable information in conjunction with certain features such
as comments in order to help protect our community from spam.

cookies on our sites. We have no access to or control over these cookies. Please see “Third-Party
Advertisers” for more information.
We and/or our third-party partners employ a software technology called tracking graphics (a.k.a. “Web
beacons” or “Web bugs”) that help us better manage content on our sites by informing us what content is
effective. Tracking graphics are tiny, transparent images with a unique identifier, similar in function to
cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored
on a user’s computer hard drive, tracking graphics are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the
size of the period at the end of this sentence. As with cookies, we may tie the information gathered by
tracking graphics to our users’ personally identifiable information.
We use tracking graphics in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by
recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our
marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt out of these emails, you may do so by following the
instructions included in every such communication.
Third Party Advertisers
Some of the ads appearing on our websites are delivered to users by one or more advertising partners. We
may share aggregate website usage information about users with reputable third parties for the purpose of
targeting our Internet banner advertisements on our websites. Additionally, these companies may use
information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and
to recognize a user when a user visits the website. The information that such companies collect and share
through this technology is not personally identifiable, nor is it under our control. If you would like more

companies for interest-based advertising, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. How to opt

Portions of the Site or the blog may include content or information provided by reputable third parties that
is presented to you via HTML frames. These frames divide your Internet browser’s screen into separate
areas for purposes of facilitating navigation or for displaying content or advertisements. If you submit any
information on such pages, your information is made available to that third party for purposes of providing
you with the information or service you request. In such instances, it may not be obvious whether we or the
third party are collecting your information. We will identify any pages on our sites that involve the framing
of third-party websites. Generally, no personally identifiable information is shared on such pages. You may
choose to not provide any information to the third party by navigating away from such areas of our sites.
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as
a credit card number) on one of our sites, we encrypt that information using secure sockets layer
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both

we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records,
unless an exception applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary

relationship with us.
• Comply with a legal obligation.
• Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in

Data Portability, Execution of Access, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable
consumer request to us by either:
• Emailing [email protected]
• Mailing EZ Cartrade at:
Attn: Consumer Privacy

Tavares, FL 32778
Only you (or a person registered with the Secretary of State of your state of residence that you authorize to
act on your behalf) may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may
also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. You may only make a verifiable
consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer
• Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom
we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
• Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and
respond to it.
We cannot reply to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity
or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable
consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information
provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights of Personal Information Sales
If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at
any time (the “right to opt-out”). We do not sell the personal information of consumers we actually know
are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt-in”) from either
the consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13
years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time.
To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us as
• Email: [email protected]
Mail: EZ Cartrade
Attn: Consumer Privacy
2542 Bracknell Forest Trl
Tavares, FL 32778
Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to
reauthorize personal information sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to personal
information sales at any time by contacting us as provided above. You do not need to create an account
with us to exercise your opt-out rights. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out
request to review and comply with the request.
Response Timing and Format
We strive to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time
(up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and timeframe in writing. If you have an account with us,
we reserve the right to deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us,
we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option (if no preference is indicated
we reserve the right to contact you at our discretion). Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-
month period preceding the receipt date of the verifiable consumer request. The response we provide will
also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we
will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to
transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. We do not charge a fee to
process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly
unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and
provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the
CCPA, we will not:
• Deny you goods or services.
• Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or
other benefits, or imposing penalties.
• Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
• Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or
quality of goods or services.

We reserve the right to update and periodically amend this Privacy Notice at our discretion and at any time.
If we make changes to this Privacy Notice, amendments will be posted online, and the date of update will
be included. Your continued use of EZ Cartrade, and its affiliated sites after any such update indicates your
agreement to the same.
