By using our VIN Validation Service it is acknowledged that Computer Perfect, developer of AutoShop Controller, will be tracking the number of times your shop uses our server to retrieve VIN information. Your system will transmit the following information to our server:
1) Your shop software serial number....such as 987343.
2) The number of times you requested a vehicle identification number.
This entire process is expected to take less than one second.
How we use this information :
Since all customers with service contracts are entitled to use this VIN Validation Service as part of their monthly support agreement, customers without a support agreement are only entitled to thirty uses. We might contact a shop that has utilized the thirty VIN Validations and offer a service agreement, which would entitle the shop to continue the use of this service.
We also monitor traffic patterns and site usage which enables us to improve our VIN Validation Service. Example: Is an increase in bandwidth needed, etc.
