This Policy describes how we handle information we learn about you from our site ("Site").
From time to time, we may use your information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our Policy. If our information practices change materially at some time in the future, we will post the changes to our website and revise our Policy accordingly.

What Information Do We Collect?
The information we collect varies depending upon your activities when visiting our site.
We collect Personal Information (information that can be used to identify you as an individual) you choose to provide to us in connection with your activities on the site. Participation in these activities is completely voluntary; therefore, you can elect not to disclose, for example, your name or address by not participating in the activity.
In addition, for each visitor to our site, we, as well as any third-party service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively gather certain other information about how the Site is accessed and used ("Usage Information"). Usage Information may include browser type, device type, operating system, application version, the page served, the time, the preceding page views, and your use of features or applications on the Site. This information helps us keep our Platforms fresh and interesting to our visitors and allows us to tailor content to a visitor's interests. Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if the Site associates it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we treat it as Personal Information. If you choose to create and use a Toyota USA account (https://www.toyota.com/usa/), we may collect, or Toyota USA may share, associated information about you.
We at TSSC may, from time to time, use session cookies on this website. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. We may link the information we store in cookies to your personal information in order to provide a faster and more pleasant online experience. If you reject or disable cookies through your browser, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site may be limited. Session cookies expire when you close your browser.
To learn how you may be able to reduce the number of cookies you receive from us, or delete cookies that have already been installed in your browser's cookie folder, please refer to your browser's help menu or other instructions related to your browser. If you do disable or opt out of receiving cookies, please be aware that some features and services on our Platforms may not work properly because we may not be able to recognize and associate you with your Toyota account(s). In addition, the offers we provide when you visit us may not be as relevant to you or tailored to your interests. If you block or delete cookies, not all tracking that we have described in this privacy statement will stop. Some browsers have a "do not track" feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, so we are not currently set up to respond to those signals.
We do not respond to Do Not Track signals.
How Do We Use This Information?
We use Personal Information for the purposes stated at the point of collection, including providing you with the information and/or services you request. We may also, from time to time, use the information we collect to notify you of changes to our services, announce new services and inform you of special offers we think you might find valuable.
We may share some Personal Information with other companies who are involved in providing the information or services related to factory tours you request through this site solely for the purpose of fulfilling your requests. In addition, we may share Personal Information collected through this Site with other Toyota entities.
