Tire Discounters recognizes that the privacy and security of personal information is important to you. Because it is also important to us, we have implemented this Privacy Policy to tell you:

(1) What information we collect;

(2) How we use that information;

(3) With whom we may share it;

(4) The choices you can make about how we collect, use, and share your information; and

(5) How you can access our information about you.

Your use of our Site is acceptance and agreement to the practices that are described in this Privacy Policy, which is incorporated as part of the Terms of Use governing this website.

Information You Provide

Tire Discounters collects information in different ways when you interact with us, including when you:

*opt out of our marketing email messages by clicking the unsubscribe link included in the footer of our emails.

Information you submit may include your name, email address, phone number, username and password, vehicle information, and other pertinent data (this list is not intended to be exhaustive). This information may be used to provide you with information you've requested about our company, our products and our services, to provide you with special notices, or to resolve customer issues you bring to our attention. You may opt out of receiving future communications when you submit your information, or by contacting us at any time (see Section 3. User Access and Control, below). This information may also be used to tailor your experience on our sites by providing content that is relevant to your interests and geographic region.

Automatically Collected Information

We may obtain and retain certain information automatically when you interact with our Site and emails. We use this information to enhance our services, create a more personalized experience, evaluate the operation and use of our Site, and to support our marketing campaigns. When you access and interact with the Site, we may collect certain information about those visits. For example, in order to permit your connection to the Site, our servers receive and record information about your computer, device, and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information. If you access the Site from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device, geolocation data, or other transactional information for that device. We may collect this information using “cookies” and other website technologies (i.e., browser pixels, beacons, and Adobe flash technology).

“Cookies” and other website technologies are comprised of small bits of data that often include a de-identified or anonymous unique identifier. Websites, apps, and other services send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer so the website can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that service. These technologies may also be used to collect and store information about your usage of the Site, such as pages you have visited, content you have viewed, search queries you have run and advertisements you have seen.

Most browsers offer instructions on how to manage, control, and delete cookies in the Help section of the toolbar. You can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. You can also manually delete cookies from your computers. Please note that by blocking any or all cookies you may not have access to certain features, content, or personalization available through the Site and may lessen your overall user experience.

Third parties that support the Site by providing services, such as tracking aggregate Site usage statistics, may also use these technologies to collect similar information. Tire Discounters does not control these third-party technologies and their use is governed by the privacy policies of third parties using such technologies.

Information from other Sources

We may supplement the information we collect with information from other sources, such as publicly available information from social media services, commercially available sources and information from our business partners.

Business Use and Disclosure

We use your information to offer and provide our products and services to you and to perform our business operations, including order or service fulfillment, internal business processes, marketing, authentication, loss and fraud prevention, public safety and legal functions. Examples of these functions include:

We may share your name, email address and other contact information with our strategic partners so that they may assist you in using our products and services, contact you with offers, services or products that may be of interest to you, and if you consent, provide you with their products or services. Our partners are prohibited from using your contact information for any other purpose without your consent.

We may partner with select retailers and other companies at various times to provide expanded services to our site visitors. As part of such a relationship, we may share with these companies the use of certain interactive Web site functions (i.e. the E-Mail Reminder Service). Information provided by site visitors through the use of such interactive functions may be available to both Tire Discounters and our partners.

We may also share personal information in the event of a corporate sale, merger, acquisition, dissolution or similar event. When the information collected from or about you does not identify you as a specific person, we may use that information for any purpose or share it with third parties.

5. PRODUCT & SERVICE AVAILABILITY IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES

5.1 This Site may contain references or cross references to Tire Discounters products and services that are not available in every country.

6. GOVERNING LAW; JURISDICTION; DISPUTES

6.1 This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio. 

6.2  You agree that all disputes, actions, and claims relating to your access to or use of the site, Services, and all matters arising out of or related to this Agreement (except for legal action taken to seek an injunction or other equitable relief related to the Site, Services, or user generated content, or claims related to the validity or enforceability of your or our intellectual property rights) (collectively “Dispute”) will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), federal arbitration law, and laws of the State of Ohio, without regard to choice of law principles.

6.3  You furthermore agree that any Dispute will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify.  You are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) all Disputes in court before a judge or jury. Instead, all Disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator’s award.   

6.4  In the event of a Dispute, you or Tire Discounters must give the other a Notice of Dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and the relief requested. You must send any Notice of Dispute by U.S. Mail to Tire Discounters at [Attention Arbitration, 3650 E. Kemper Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45241].  You and Tire Discounters will attempt to resolve any Dispute through informal negotiation within 60 days from the date the Notice of Dispute is sent. After 60 days, you or Tire Discounters may commence arbitration.  You are not required to wait 60 days to file a small claims action. 

6.5  The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's supplementary procedures for consumer-related disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.  Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules.  You agree to commence arbitration only in your county of residence or in Hamilton County, Ohio. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submission, or in person by following the AAA rules. In a Dispute involving $10,000 or less, any hearing will be telephonic unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. The arbitrator may award the same damages to you individually as a court could.

6.6  You agree that the making of claims or resolution of Disputes pursuant to this Agreement shall be in your individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, or representative proceeding. You agree that to the extent permitted by applicable law, that any and all Disputes will be resolved individually in the forum designated in this section, without resort to any form of class action.  

6.7  To the extent permitted by law, any Dispute to which this section applies must be filed within one year in small claims court or in arbitration with the AAA.  The one-year period begins when the claim or Notice of Dispute could first be filed. If such a Dispute isn't filed within one year, it is permanently barred.

6.8  If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial.
