To ensure the normal operation of the website, we will store small data files named Cookie on your computer or mobile device.

(II) Website Beacon and Pixel Tag
In addition to Cookies, we will also use other similar technologies such as website beacons and pixel tags on websites. For example, the email or short message sent from us may contain a URL linking to our website content. If you click the link, we will trace this click to learn your preferences for product or service, and improve our customer service.

Many web browsers have the Do Not Track function, which can issue Do Not Track request to websites. At present, major Internet standards organizations have not yet established policies to specify how websites should respond to such request. But if your browser is enabled with Do Not Track function, then all our websites will respect your choice.
III. How We Share, Transfer and Disclose Publicly Your Personal Information
We will not share your personal information with companies, organizations and individuals other than Great Wall Motors, except for the following circumstances:
1. Share with your explicit consent: We will share your personal information with other parties after obtaining your explicit consent.
2. We may share your personal information according to laws and regulations or mandatory requirements of government departments.
4. Share with Dealers. For the purpose stated in this Policy only, we will share your personal information with dealers to provide better customer service and user experience.
5. Share with authorized partners: For the purpose stated in this Policy, some of our services will be provided by the authorized partners. We may share some of your personal information with our partners to provide better customer service and user experience. For example, when you purchase our products, we have to share your personal information with the logistics service provider to arrange delivery or arrange partners to provide services. We will only share your personal information for lawful, legitimate, necessary, specific and definite purposes, and only share the personal information necessary for service provision. Our partners have no right to use the shared personal information for any other purpose.
At present, our authorized partners are as follows:
1) Authorized partners for advertising and analysis services. Unless we have obtained your permission, we will not share your personal identification information (i.e. information through which you can be contacted or identified, such as name or e-mail) with partners providing advertising and analysis services. We will only provide such partners with information related to advertising coverage and effectiveness instead of your personal identification information, or we will summarize all personnel information so that you will not be identified. For example, only after the advertisers agree to abide by our advertising guidelines, will we be able to tell the advertisers the effects of their advertisements, or the number of people seeing the advertisements or installing their applications after seeing the advertisements, or to provide these partners with demographic information (for example, a 25-year-old male located in Beijing who likes software development), which could not tell personal identity, to help them know better of their audiences or customers.
2) Suppliers, service providers and other partners. We will send information to suppliers, service providers and other partners who support our business globally in providing technical infrastructure services, analyzing the usage of our services, measuring the effectiveness of advertisements and services, providing customer services, facilitating payments, or conducting academic research and investigation.
We will not transfer your personal information to any company, organization and individual except for the following circumstances:
1. Transfer with explicit consent: We will transfer your personal information to other parties after obtaining your explicit consent.
(III) Public Disclosure
We will only publicly disclose your personal information under the following circumstances:
1. Your explicit consent is obtained.
2. Law-based disclosure: We may publicly disclose your personal information under the circumstances required by laws, legal procedures, lawsuits or competent government departments.IV. How We protect Your Personal Information
(I) We have taken security protection measures that conform to industry standards to protect the personal information you provide from unauthorized access, public disclosure, usage, modification, damage or loss. We will take all reasonable and practical measures to protect your personal information. For example, SSL encipherment protection will be provided for your personal information when data (such as credit card information) is exchanged between your browser and the "Service". We will also provide https secured browsing mode for GWM official website. We will use encryption technology to ensure the confidentiality of data. We will use trusted protection mechanisms to prevent malicious attacks on data. We will deploy access control mechanisms to ensure that only authorized personnel can access personal information. We will provide security and privacy protection training courses to enhance employees' awareness of the importance of protecting personal information. We have established a data security and authority management system by implementing an authority authorization system that divides the executable authorities into the smallest particles, distinguishing different authority classes according to the roles of access requirements; implementing the authority authorization system which distinguishes access and execution actions, and dividing personal information access actions into inquiry, modification, cancellation, unbinding and other several specific operation authorities. We will record the application initiation and approval process of access authorities, visitors' login and operation log. We have taken several security technical measures: require visitors to visit through the intranet; establish a hierarchical data management system to encrypt and store sensitive personal information, implement a double backup mechanism for multiple computer rooms; and use trusted protection mechanisms to prevent malicious attacks on your personal information.
(II) We will take all reasonable and practical measures to ensure that no irrelevant personal information is collected. We will only reserve your personal information within a period as required for achieving the purpose of this Policy, unless any extension is required or permitted by law.
(III) The Internet environment is not 100% secure, so we will try our best to ensure or guarantee the security of any information you send us. If any of your legitimate rights and interests are damaged arising from unauthorized access, public disclosure, tampering or destruction of information due to the damage of our physical, technical or management protection facilities, we will undertake the corresponding legal responsibilities.
(IV) Given that the Internet is not an absolutely safe environment, and e-mail, instant messaging, and communication with other users are not encrypted, we strongly recommend that you do not send personal information in these ways. Please use a relatively complex password in order to assist us in ensuring the security of your account.
(V) In case of any unfortunate personal information security incidents, we will inform you according to the requirements of laws and regulations the basic information and possible impacts of the same, the treatment measures taken or will be taken, suggestions regarding risk prevention and reduction on your own, remedial measures offered to you, etc. We will notify you of the related information by mail, correspondence, telephone, push notification, etc. Where it is difficult for notifying the subject of personal information one by one, we will release corresponding announcements through reasonable and effective methods.
In the meanwhile, we will also take the initiative to report the disposition of personal information security incidents to the regulatory authorities according to their requirements.
