DEFINITIONS AND INTERPRETATION

“CMH” means Combined Motor Holdings Limited, registration number 1965/000270/06;
“Visitor” or “you” means any person who visits this web site.
Interpretation. A word defined or assigned a meaning in the Terms will start with a capital letter. All headings are inserted for reference purposes only and must not affect the interpretation of the Terms.

Terms other than those defined within the Terms will be given their plain English meaning. A reference to a person includes a natural and juristic person and a reference to either party includes the party’s successors or permitted assigns. The rule of construction that an agreement must be interpreted against the party responsible for its drafting or preparation does not apply.

DEFINITIONS AND INTERPRETATION
Collection on registration. Once a User registers or places and order with CMH, a User is not anonymous to CMH. When registering, each User provides Data, which includes an ID, a password, and an email address. To combat online fraud, CMH may also record the IP address of a User when adding Data. In addition, a User may provide necessary Personal Information to process a credit card payment, including a billing address.
Decline to share. A User can decline to share Personal Information with CMH by not registering with CMH.
Children. CMH does not intentionally gather Personal Information about visitors who are under the age of 13.
Collection from browser. CMH automatically receives and records information on CMH’s server logs from the browser of a User, including an IP address, CMH cookie information, and the page requested. Each User should be aware that other web sites visited before entering the web site might place Personal Information within a URL of a User during a visit to it, and CMH has no control over such web sites. Accordingly, a subsequent web site that collects URL information may log some Personal Information.
Messages and updates. CMH may send to a User administrative messages and email updates regarding its account, the web site, or its Goods or Services. In some cases, CMH may also send a User primarily promotional messages. A User can choose to opt-out of promotional messages.
Targeted content. While a User is logged into the web site, CMH may display targeted adverts and other relevant information based on the Data. In a completely automated process, computers process the Data and match it to adverts or related information. Natural persons do not read Data to target adverts or other information without consent. CMH never shares Personal Information with any advertiser, unless a User specifically asks CMH to do so. Advertisers receive a record of the total number of impressions and clicks for each advert. They do not receive any Personal Information. If a User clicks on an advert, CMH may send a referring URL to the advertiser’s site identifying that a User is visiting from the web site. CMH does not send Personal Information to advertisers with the referring URL. Once a User is on the advertiser’s site however, the advertiser may collect Personal Information.
Marketing purposes. CMH may disclose aggregate statistics (information about the User population in general terms) about the Data to advertisers or business partners for marketing purposes.
Third party supplier or agents. CMH may need to provide Data to a third party supplier to supply or provide specific Goods or Services to a User (such as hosting services, support services, shipping services, or payment processing). Each third party supplier is required to only disclose or use the Data to supply or provide the specific Goods or Services requested.
Law enforcement. CMH may disclose Data if required: by a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order by law; to protect the safety of any individual or the general public; to prevent violation of the Agreement, or the rights of CMH or any third party. An IP address may be disclosed to a third party: if the law or a legal process requires it; to protect the rights or property of CMH, a User, or the general public.
Change of ownership. If CMH undergoes a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or sale of assets to, another entity, CMH may assign its rights to the Data it processes to a successor, purchaser, or separate entity. CMH will notify each User of the transfer and the User may choose to modify its Personal Data at that time. If a User is concerned about its Data migrating to a new owner, the User may deactivate or delete its account.
Employees. CMH may need to disclose Data to its employees that require the Data to do their jobs.
Abuse. CMH may disclose Data to designated third parties to resolve or investigate abuse complaints. CMH may release Data to assist in attempting to block an abusive User or complain to its Internet Service Provider of an abusive User.
SECURITY OF DATA
CMH uses some of the most advanced security measures to protect the Data under its control. All Data is safe, secure, and available only to the User and those to whom User has granted permissions. In addition, the web site is hosted in a secure server environment that uses a firewall and other advanced security measures to prevent interference or access from outside intruders.
USERNAME AND PASSWORD
During the registration process, CMH will provide User with a username and password. It is the responsibility of each User to maintain the confidentiality and security of their password.
UPDATING OR REMOVING
A User may choose to correct or update the Data they have submitted to CMH, by going to their account. To remove any Data from the active database of CMH, a User may deactivate or delete their account. Even if a User updates or removes their Data from CMH’s live database, Data may be retained in CMH’s backup files and archives.
Any unauthorised use of CMH information systems is a violation of the Agreement and certain laws, including the section 86 of the ECT Act. Such violations may subject the person to civil and criminal penalties.
INTERCEPT AND MONITOR
CMH may intercept, monitor, block, filter, read, delete, and disclose any communication over its information system.
CMH is not responsible for, gives no warranties, nor makes any representations in respect of the privacy policies or practices of linked or any third party web sites.
CMH may transmit or transfer Personal Information outside the resident jurisdiction of the User and therefore across borders. Personal Information may be stored on servers located in the United States where laws protecting Personal Information may not be as stringent as the laws in the jurisdiction of the User. Personal Information may be processed by CMH in the country where it was collected as well as other countries (including the United States) where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent.
