Like many websites, this Site uses "session cookies" and "persistent cookie" technology. Persistent cookies are small text files that our Site places within your browser so that it can remember you when you show up again later—like cookie crumbs. None of these cookies store any of your personal information. We use persistent cookies to enhance your experience on our Site while also protecting your privacy, as well as enhancing the functionality and performance of our Site, and for analytical purposes. On our Site, temporary cookies, also called session cookies, may be placed within your browser and expire as soon as you exit our site. Typically, session cookies are used to facilitate interactions between you and the fields in forms on our Site.
Managing cookie preferences differs from browser to browser. Please refer to your web browser for further information. If you would like to disable cookies from AvioCredit.com, please use the help function in your web browser to restrict cookies from our Site.
Third Party Collection
We use data collected by mobile carriers for the purpose of verifying identity and preventing fraud. We may continue to access and use this data throughout the duration of the business relationship.
We partner with companies that deliver ads for our Services on sites that you visit on the web. In order to provide you with a more appropriate online experience, some of our ads that you may see are based on your previous online activity on our Site and other websites. Information about your online activities, combined with other information, may be used to select an ad for a product or service that better matches your interests - which is called online behavioral advertising (OBA) or interest-based advertising.
You can opt out from receiving ads based on your online behavior either by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) opt out page at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. If you elect to opt out of OBA, you will still see ads, but they may not be as pertinent to you. Please keep in mind that opting out is cookie-based and will only affect the specific computer and browser on which the opt-out cookie is applied. If you delete your browser cookies or if you use a different computer or a different browser and want to continue to be opted out of OBA, you will need to opt out again.
