Privacy Policy

General Information

We collect the e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail, aggregate information on what pages the user access or visit, and information volunteered by the user (such as survey information and/or site registrations). The information we collect is used to improve the content of our Web pages and the quality of our service, and is not shared with or sold to other organizations for commercial purposes, except to provide products or services you've requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:

  • It is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law.

  • We transfer information about you if we are acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, we will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Information Gathering and Usage

When you register we ask for information such as your name, email address, billing address, or payment information.

We use collected information for the following general purposes: products and services provision, billing, identification and authentication, services improvement, contact, and research.

Cookies

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive.

Cookies are required to use our service.

We use cookies to record current session information, but do not use permanent cookies. You are required to re-login to your account after a certain period of time has elapsed to protect you against others accidentally accessing your account contents.

Third-party Cookies

We use some external services which require cookies which are out of our control.

  • Google analytics. This external service gives us a better inside on which pages are visited and from what location. This helps us create a better experience for you. Modern browsers have a Do-not-track option which can be enabled. Google analytics honor this setting and will not track you. However we also will not get insight in the pages you visited and can not improve our services for you.

  • ustream.tv. We use this service for our live streams during live auctions. This service requires enabling third-party cookies. This is not something we like ourselves and are looking into other possibilities.

Data Storage

We use hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run this website. Although we own the code, databases, and all rights to the application, you retain all rights to your data.

Disclosure

We may disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances, such as to comply with subpoenas or when your actions violate our Terms of Service.

Changes

We may periodically update this policy. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending a notice to the email address specified in your account or by placing a prominent notice on our site.

Any questions about this Privacy Policy should be addressed to us.
