The Association of Global Automakers, Inc. (Global Automakers) is committed to protecting the privacy and security of visitors to our website. Outlined below is Global Automakers’ online privacy policy for information collected through our member website and email lists. At all times, however, Global Automakers reserves the right to disclose information where required by law or to comply with valid legal process (such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order), to protect Global Automakers’ rights or property. 
Whenever we change our policy, we will give reasonable notice by posting a notice on our home page. Since these policy change notices last only for a limited time, however, you should check this Privacy Policy regularly to see if there have been any changes.

Data Collection and Third party Information Disclosure:

We collect your email address if you communicate with us by email, as well as other information that you might supply voluntarily, such as survey or directory information. We do not share or otherwise disclose any personal information, including your name, address, telephone numbers or e-mail address to other organizations. Only Global Automakers’ staff and our authorized agents have access to personally identifiable information provided by visitors to our site.
Global Automakers may use this information to respond to an email or other inquiry or request, to help improve our website and our services, to customize your experience at our website, or to send updates or notices about our organization and the products we offer that we think may be of interest to you. We may also combine this information with other generally or publicly available information to help us identify visitors’ preferences or interests.
Global Automakers may collect information from its members (including names, addresses, business phone numbers, business fax numbers, and email addresses) for inclusion in a membership directory that is made available to the association’s members.  Access to directory information may also be made available to members on Global Automakers’ member website. Further, with the members’ express approval, Global Automakers may occasionally provide limited data to third parties, including companies that offer services for sale to Global Automakers’ members. This limited data includes names, job titles, companies/organizations, and business addresses, but do not include business phone numbers, business fax numbers, or email addresses. 

Information collected on our website:

As with any website operator, Global Automakers analyzes its website logs to improve the value of our website. We use an application to provide real-time information to us and our authorized agents of browser activity on our website. This information does not include any internet users’ personally identifiable information, nor does Global Automakers otherwise gather, request record or collect user PIN information.

Children's privacy:

Global Automakers complies fully with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulation establish United States federal law that protects the privacy of children using the Internet. Our site is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13.


Global Automakers does not enable “cookies” on our website with one exception. A cookie is used in website system administration to keep track of movement of an individual user from one screen to another. This information may be used by our staff to detect and resolve website problems and to assist with customer support. We do not collect any personally identifiable information about site visitors in this process. Our web server automatically collects information from your computer and navigation patterns when you visit our site, including your Internet Protocol (IP) address, the computer’s operating system, the type of browser you use, and the specific web pages visited during your connection. We may also track data such as the total number of visits to our website and the number of visitors to each page of our website. We may use this information, in aggregate form, for system maintenance and to better understand how our visitors use our site and services so that we can make them better. Global Automakers may also share statistical or demographic information in aggregate form with third parties. This aggregate data will not contain any information that personally identifies you.

Privacy of E-mail Addresses:

Global Automakers maintains several email lists to keep the media and policy makers informed about news and events. Individuals must request to join our mailing lists. We configure our subscriber distribution lists so that the email addresses of subscribers are not disclosed to anyone other than Global Automakers’ staff and authorized contractors.


Global Automakers uses state-of-the-art technology to keep any information you provide as secure as possible. We also have in place privacy protection control contractual obligations with our vendors designed to ensure that personal data is protected from unauthorized access or disclosure. All Global Automakers’ employees must abide by our Privacy Policy. Only authorized employees are permitted to have access to personally identifiable data about website visitors, and that access is limited to what is reasonably needed to perform an employee’s responsibilities, such as providing updates or notices or customer service.


Global Automakers represents the unique interests of international motor vehicle manufacturers and original equipment suppliers in the United States. We work with industry leaders, legislators, regulators, and other stakeholders to create public policy that improves motor vehicle safety, encourages technological innovation and protects our planet.
