Cookies are small data files that your browser places on your computer or device. A cookie itself does not contain or collect information. However, when it is read by a server via a web browser it can help a website deliver a more user-friendly service – for example, remembering account details. Like most websites, the Website collects some information (e.g., information on IP addresses, browsers, internet service providers, referring pages, exit pages, operating systems, date stamps, time stamps and clickstream data). Both we and our third-party tracking utility partners use browser storage, app storage, cookies, pixels, beacons, scripts and tags to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement through the site and collect demographic information about our overall user base. We may receive reports on these from our third-party tracking utility partners on an individual and aggregate basis.

Code of Conduct

We consider members family. And we hold them to the same standard we hold for ourselves.

There aren’t many rules at Le Pit Club that don’t boil down to “treat others how you’d like to be treated”. But in the spirit of getting specific, here is our general code of conduct:

We appreciate the power within every vehicle, but unless it’s a track day, there’s no reason to put that power on display in a disruptive way.

We are building an inclusive community for people from all walks of life, and that includes our member’s kids. Please look around before you speak.

We’re creating a new community, but we aren’t sovereign from the states.

You’re not just one of us, you are us. We could not be more proud that you’ve chosen us as a vehicle club, and we consider you a representative of our community.We enjoy the camaraderie that car culture brings. Sometimes we talk smack. But there’s always an underlying level of respect and appreciation that we seek to carry forward in every interaction, big or small. We hope that you feel the same, and we are happy to call you one of us.

We strive to make every customer experience positive. If for any reason you are unhappy with your experience, please let us know by emailing contact@lepitclub.com.
