Legal Privacy Policy

We Value Your Privacy

Nissan North America collects information from our users at several different points on our Web site. Nissan North America is the sole owner of the information collected on this site (except that our subsidiary Nissan Motor Acceptance Corporation owns information collected from credit pre-approval applications). We will not sell or rent this information to others. We will only share this information with our affiliates and dealers, and marketing partners contracted to do business on our behalf (e.g., brochure fulfillment).

If you provide your Social Security Number to us, we will (1) Protect the confidentiality of Social Security numbers, (2) prohibit unlawful disclosure of Social Security numbers, and (3) limit access to Social Security numbers.

Nissan North America uses two types of user information: anonymous information gathered from cookies and log files, and personal information you provide us for certain services. See below for definitions of each of these methods.

(December 2015)

Anonymous Information - Cookies and Log Files

Use of Nissan Websites

By usage of Nissan websites and providing your personal information, you agree to the collection and use of your information as stated in this Privacy Policy. In addition to the uses and disclosures listed therein, Nissan may use third party providers to collect and record data on the use and performance of the Site during your visit (“Usage Data”), which may include without limitation the pages you view, the search terms you enter, your IP address, and personal information that you submit through the website. Usage Data may be collected by Nissan or its third party provider through “cookies”, log files and other technology. Nissan uses this information to administer the Site and to improve the services provided to you. Nissan may share information collected through the Site with suppliers to provide services for us or as required by law or court order. Nissan may also share Usage Data in an aggregate statistic format with a third party; such statistics would not include personal information. Nissan does not rent, sell, or trade Usage Data outside of Nissan.

Nissan does not respond to “do not track” beacons or other such signals. You may have received a tracking mechanism prior to your visit to the Site from other parties that will continue to track your activity while on the Site. Such data would be subject to the privacy policy of the other party from whom you received the mechanism, and we do not control or receive data from such mechanisms. For more information on how to opt-out of advertiser tracking mechanisms, please visit www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to personal information, until a user provides that information (see below). If a user rejects or deletes the cookie, he/she may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, the user will not be able to receive notification of special offers, or participate in any contests that may take place. Cookies also enable us to track and aggregate clickstream behavior data. By doing this we can better target the interests of our users and enhance their experience on our site.

Nissan also maintains standard web logs that record data about all visitors to this Web site. These logs may contain:

  • The Internet domain from which you access this site.
  • Your IP address (Your computer is automatically assigned an IP address when you surf the Internet. Your IP address is either static or dynamic. A static IP address may be identifiable to you; a dynamic address is usually not identifiable to you).
  • The type of browser and operating system you use.
  • The date and time you visited this site.
  • The pages you viewed on this site.
  • The address of the Web site from which you linked.

Nissan uses web log and clickstream information to help us design our site, to identify popular site features and to make the site more useful for visitors. Web logs are recorded in sequential files, and we normally do not attempt to identify individuals from these logs. However, we may use web logs to identify persons attempting to break into, disrupt, or damage our Site. We may share web log information with law enforcement personnel if we believe evidence exists, or is likely to occur, of a violation of federal, state or local laws or regulations.

Nissan advertising at other non-Nissan sites may be serviced by Nissan service providers, who may use cookies to collect information about your visits to those sites. Information collected may include the pages visited, date and time, browser information and/or IP address. We normally make no attempt to link this information to you personally, except under circumstances described above. This information is gathered in order to help us customize and target our advertising to the needs and interests of our customers. If you wish to opt out of this tracking at our advertising at third party sites, please visit the following sites:

Omniture

Volunteering Personal Information

Users may choose to volunteer personal information (name, e-mail address, phone number, etc.) in order for us to provide them with services such as brochure and information requests, surveys and contests, site announcements, and special offers at the time of the request or in the future. If you would like to have your e-mail address removed from our list, click the unsubscribe link and enter your e-mail address. Or you can call or send regular mail to remove yourself from the list (see contact information below).

Nissan does not sell or rent user information to any third parties. We share user information with our affiliates and dealers, and marketing partners contracted to do business on our behalf (e.g., brochure fulfillment). When the user signs up for certain services and offers on our site, we will share names, or other contact information necessary for any associate third party to provide these services. Nissan will share user information in accordance with the privacy policy in effect at the time the information is collected.

If a user's personal information changes, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct or update that user's personal data provided to us. This can be done by e-mailing privacy@nissan-usa.com or by contacting Nissan Consumer Affairs as outlined below.

E-mail a Friend

If a user elects to e-mail a friend from this Web site, a function available from the Design Your Vehicle page, we ask for the friend's e-mail address. Nissan North America captures this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time e-mail.

Security

Nissan takes all reasonable precautions to protect our users' information, both while the information is being transmitted and after it is received by us.

When our credit pre-approval form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with SSL 128-bit encryption software, an industry standard for reputable organizations. While on a secure page, such as our credit pre-approval application form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just "surfing." For more information on the Nissan Motor Acceptance Corporation (NMAC) privacy notice, see "NMAC Privacy Policy" below.

Furthermore, once the information has been received by us, we use security procedures and policies commensurate with industry standards to safeguard against loss, theft, unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification and disclosure. If you have any questions about the security of our Web site, you can send an e-mail to privacy@nissan-usa.com.

Links

This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Nissan North America is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each Web site that collects personal information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Notification of Changes

We retain the right to change this privacy policy at any time. We will post those changes to this page so that users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. We will use, share, and disclose all information in accordance with the privacy policy in effect at the time the information was collected.

Certain Disclosures

Nissan may disclose any data, whether personally identifiable or not, to any person performing audit, legal, operational or other similar services for Nissan. Whenever possible, we will require any recipient of personal information for these purposes to agree in writing to hold the information in confidence, to use the information only for the permitted purpose, and to return or destroy the information when the services are completed.

We may also disclose any data, whether personally identifiable or not, when required to do so by subpoena, court order, or warrant. Whenever feasible, Nissan will notify the effected user by e-mail that such disclosure will or has occurred.

We may also disclose any data, whether personally identifiable or not, when we reasonably deem it necessary to protect the safety of (i) an individual, (ii) the public, or (iii) the security and reliability of Nissan and/or this Web site.

Children

Nissan does not knowingly allow anyone under the age of 13 to participate in any services offered on our Web site which requires the submission of user information. If we learn that a user is under 13 and has submitted user information to us, we will delete that information as promptly as possible.

NissanConnect Privacy Notice

Nissan North America, Inc. ("Nissan,") values your Privacy. Protecting your privacy is important to Nissan. Because privacy and consumer trust are important to us, we provide this Privacy Notice to you with a brief description of our practices relating to collection, use, and sharing of personal and vehicle information. Nissan collects information from you and your Nissan vehicle. By activating, registering, subscribing, or using any of the NissanConnect services, including NissanConnectSM Services powered by SiriusXM®, you consent to Nissan recording and using certain information for various purposes as more specifically described below, including without limitation, product evaluation and research and development in connection with the operation of your vehicle. NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM is provided to you by Sirius XM Radio Inc. For additional details regarding the collection, use and sharing of personal and vehicle information by Nissan and SiriusXM in relation to NissanConnect Services, please read the NissanConnect Services Privacy Policy available at http://services.nissanconnect.nissanusa.com/subscriber/privacy_policy_usen. Your vehicle is equipped with hardware and software used to facilitate collection and use of certain data described in this Notice.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT: We collect information about you and your vehicle several different ways: (i) from what you and the dealer provide to us when you use NissanConnect services during a trial period or demonstration mode, subscribe to NissanConnect services, or buy or lease a Nissan vehicle; (ii) from your use of your vehicle; (iii) from calls or emails between us or our third party service providers; (iv) from our wireless or satellite carriers; and (v) from the vehicle itself.

The vehicle and driving information we may obtain from the vehicle includes, without limitation, (a) information about the vehicle and its operation, including without limitation, Vehicle Identification Number, GPS and navigation information, speed and distance information, driving habit and style, battery use management information, battery charging history1, battery deterioration information1, electrical system functions1, diagnostic trouble codes, maintenance conditions, software version information, and other data to assist in identifying and analyzing the performance of the vehicle; (b) information about your use of the vehicle and any corresponding services, websites and smartphone applications; and (c) data about accidents involving the vehicle (for example, the direction from which the vehicle was hit and which air bags have deployed).

USE AND SHARING OF INFORMATION: You agree that we can, subject to applicable law, use any of this information we collect, and provide such information to applicable third party service providers, to emergency contacts provided by you, or law enforcement or other governmental entities, to: (i) provide certain services to you or your vehicle (including, but not limited to, sharing that information with roadside assistance providers, emergency service providers, or others, as needed as part of our delivery of services); (ii) perform an analysis of service usage and maintenance conditions, (iii) communicate with you about your account; (iv) analyze the vehicle performance, and combine with and compare to data gathered from other Nissan vehicle owners in order to be able to determine aggregate product usage; (v) help you to maintain the vehicle; (vi) evaluate and improve vehicle quality and any services related to the vehicle; (vii) prevent fraud or misuse of your vehicle or any related services; (viii) comply with the law and any and all legal requirements, including valid court orders; (ix) protect the rights, property, or safety of you or others; (x) offer you new or additional products or services; (xi) perform market research, or (xii) for purposes of processing the information collected. We may also use your information to offer you new or additional products or services, or share with companies affiliated with Nissan for joint marketing initiatives, subject to applicable law or your consent where required. We will not share personal information with any other marketers for their own use without your express consent. This list is not meant to be exhaustive.

You understand that, for quality assurance purposes, we (including our third party service providers) may monitor and record conversations between our (including our third party service providers) respective response centers and the vehicle occupants. We (including our third party service providers) may also monitor and record any calls coming into our (including our third party service providers) response centers from any source. Therefore, for yourself, the occupants and anyone contacting us on your behalf, you: (i) consent to all such monitoring and recording and, (ii) release us, third party beneficiaries and any wireless carrier(s) from claims, liabilities and losses that may result from any such monitored and/or recorded conversations.

We may use your information for any purpose or share it with any third party if we anonymize the information so that it no longer reasonably identifies you or your vehicle. Anonymization requires altering your information so re-identification requires use of only non-public sources. Wherever possible, we require third party service provider use of the information to be anonymized or protected in accordance with our information security policies. We limit who we share your information with and the legitimate business purposes for which it can be used.

YOUR CHOICES ABOUT COLLECTION, USE AND SHARING OF INFORMATION: You have certain choices about the information we collect, use or share.

[For Nissan LEAF vehicles only]: In addition, you will be required to acknowledge, via a pop-up consent statement presented on the navigation screen of the Nissan LEAF, that the Nissan LEAF transmits recorded vehicle data to Nissan. If you click on the "I DECLINE" button, certain information and data may not be available for your use. Some collection and sharing practices are tied to the telematics services we offer. By declining and stopping the collecting and sharing of some information, you are willing to accepted limited functionality of the telematics services. Please note that even if you choose to decline, some limited vehicle data may still be collected to improve vehicle quality and any services related to the vehicle.

If you do not notify us of a sale or transfer of your vehicle, we may continue to send reports or other information about the vehicle or the account to the address currently on file with us and/or new owner. In such case, we are not responsible for any privacy related damages you may suffer.

You may update this information by calling NissanConnect Service support at 1-855-426-6628 or updating online at http://owners.nissanusa.com/nowners/.

SAFEGUARDING YOUR INFORMATION: We are committed to keeping your personal information secure.

We limit access to personal information to individuals who have a business need consistent with the reason the information was provided. Wherever possible, we require our third party service providers to protect your information in accordance with our information security policies.

Because certain communications and information collected from your vehicle is provided through wireless and satellite networks, we cannot promise or guarantee that the communications will not be intercepted by others. You agree that Nissan will not be liable for any damages for any loss of privacy occurring in communication over such networks.
