TrueDelta takes your privacy seriously.
Site members supply an email address in order to take part in the research. This email address will never be provided to a third party (aside from email management services TrueDelta might use to send and receive email) without your express consent with regard to a specific offer. We hate spam as much as anyone, and will never provide mailing lists to third parties.
Site members also provide information about themselves and their vehicles via forms on the site and, in some cases, personal email. All information pertaining to the cars, car buying, and the car ownership experience becomes the property of TrueDelta. That said, none of this information (names, license plates, email addresses, etc.) will be published or otherwise publicly released in a form that it can be connected to the individual member or vehicle. For people who are no longer members we will disguise email addresses by partially deleting theme upon request.
For example, while responses to the fuel economy and repair history surveys are posted directly to the site, these posted results and statistics based on data submitted for multiple cars include no way to identify the specific vehicle they pertain to or the person who provided the data unless the member includes personally identifying information in their screen name or in the text of their entry (not advised and rarely if ever done).
For security, data integrity, abuse prevention, and site usage statistics we record timestamps, IP addresses, and a member number when members login and when they enter information.
TrueDelta does not provide data to Carfax, Autocheck, or any other such services that provide information on individual cars.
