Who We Are

Welcome to our website, Cars Online Free. We are committed to protecting your privacy and handling your data responsibly.

Comments

When you leave a comment on our website, we collect the data displayed in the comments form. Additionally, we collect your IP address and browser user agent string to assist in spam detection.

An anonymized string (also known as a hash) derived from your email address may be sent to the Gravatar service to verify if you are using it. You can view the Gravatar service privacy policy here. Once your comment is approved, your profile picture will be publicly visible alongside your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, please avoid including images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) as others might download and extract this location data from the images.
