Privacy & Security
Safe and Secure Shopping
When shopping with us, you do not need to worry about the safety of your debit/credit card or other personal information. Our high-strength encryption and advanced TLS configuration exceed industry standards and protects all data you transmit to us from the moment you visit our website. We are also PCI Compliant, which means the way we handle debit/credit card data (including through our web servers and networks) meets a high bar for following the best security practices and running the most "hardened" software versions and configurations. Additionally, our website's identity is insured through our security certificate provider. This insurance basically guarantees that we are who we say we are. In other words, you can be assured that you are dealing with the real PRO Car Studio. If our provider were to mis-issue a certificate with our name on it to a fraudulent site, you could be reimbursed if you lost money as a result of this. So, in short, when you give us your information, you can be sure that it is going to our secure servers.
Effective Date: 8/8/2019, Last Update: 1/5/2023 (updated details on Google data collection and opt-out options)
Your privacy is very important to us, and that is why we have invested much time and thought into our privacy and security practices, even though the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) do not apply to us (we are exempt from both based on our business practices, location, and activity level).
Information We Collect That You Provide
The types of information we may collect include your name, phone number, email, shipping and billing addresses, vehicle type, what parts you're interested in (Wish List), payment information, and any other information you choose to provide us. Please note that for PCI Compliance reasons, we do not store your full debit/credit card information.

How to Edit Your Information
Simply login to your account using the "person" menu icon and edit your addresses, email, password, or anything else you choose. We do not store payment card details, so you will not see any options to edit those details. If you'd like us to delete your information, simply send us an email from the email associated with your account and request account deletion.
How We Handle "Do Not track" (DNT) Requests
At the time of this writing, Google cookies do not respect browser "Do Not track" DNT requests, so they will still track your activity across the web regardless of your browser DNT setting. However, on our website we do not serve advertisements directly or track your browsing behavior for our own advertising purposes. We do set our own first party cookies but they are only used for tracking your shopping cart and other basic things related to using our site and completing your order. Thus, your browser DNT setting does not apply to our own cookies because they do not track you for advertising purposes. Therefore, our website simply ignores browser DNT requests.
Your Data Choices
The items below are things you can do that will limit how we use your personal information or how much information is collected by us or third parties. We do not store your full debit/credit card information, so updating or deleting your card information with us is not necessary.
