  • Through the Services: We may collect information from or about you through our websites, software applications, social media pages, e-mail messages, or other digital services (the “Services”), e.g., when you sign up for a newsletter, make a purchase, or register your product with us.
  • From other sources: We also may receive information about you from other sources, such as public databases, joint marketing partners, certified installers, third-party vehicle repair or service centers, and social media platforms.
  • Offline: We may collect information from or about you offline, such as when you attend one of our events, sign up for a test drive, place an order over the phone, or contact our customer services or sales department.
