Auto Effex does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under the age of thirteen, we ask that you not submit any form or make any request on our website, and you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to use the website.
Auto Effex takes precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
