We also use this information to send you email notifications about updates to the web site, and to contact you by other means for marketing and other purposes. Our policy is to not give, sell or otherwise distribute the information collected through this site to third parties outside of El Bronco (unless required by law); provided, however, in some cases we may use suppliers to assist us in collecting, using or otherwise processing for our benefit the information obtained through this site.

Who we share your data with
We do not share your data except as needed to fulfill requests from you for Services or requests for information.
What non-personal data we collect and why we collect it
Analytics and third party data and where does it go
Throughout our site We employ 1 or more tracking scripts such as Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel and a lead generation tool. These tools do not provide us direct personal information beyond your IP address, which might indicate the company that you work for if it is assigned specific IP addresses for internet access. These tools also store certain details about your device and certain settings such as operating system being used, type of device being used, and the browser being used.
However, if you are using services related to Google or Facebook, Google and/or Facebook may know who you are and or demographic information about you. The information provided to us from these services aggregate the data if we have enough visitors that the services can identify. From that data it is possible to know demographic information for typical visits to a page such age, income range, likes on Facebook, etc. The Analytics profile information allows us to see how a typical visitor might progress through our site. However, we never know exactly who is visiting unless they let us know by filling out a form interacting with messenger. Subsequent visits might be identifiable depending on how many folks use the same IP address or whether the person logs in to our website.
Google and Facebook store their Analytics and Facebook Pixel data on their servers. Clicky (an analytics platform we are testing) stores data on it server.
As part of standard server practice, this type of data is also stored in server logs for the purpose of managing, operating and securing the server.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
