Angus Auctions Privacy Policy

Last Updated: January  [__], 2014 This Privacy Policy discloses information gathering and dissemination practices for the ­­­­­­­­­­Angusauctions.com site (the “Site”) and is part of the Agreement between you and DVAuctions, Inc. (“DVA”), which also includes the General Terms and Conditions for Use of Website (located at http://Angusauctions.com) (collectively, the “General Terms and Conditions”). By accepting the General Terms and Conditions and by using the Site or the Services (all capitalized terms used but not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meanings given to them in the General Terms and Conditions), you agree to the uses of your personal information described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time in DVA’s discretion, without notice. Please read the following policy to understand how your information will be treated. We may modify this policy from time to time by posting a revised policy on this Site, so please check back periodically. When this policy is modified, if the modifications are significant, we will display the following next to the link to the policy at the Site: “RECENTLY REVISED”, for a period of thirty (30) days following posting. If there is a material change in the collection, use, or disclosure practices to which you have previously agreed, we will attempt to send you a notice via email if you have provided us with an email address. Please keep in mind that some of the services mentioned specifically in this policy may not be available on the Site at this time.

Use of the Services and the Site constitutes acceptance of all General Terms and Conditions, including this Privacy Policy and any amendments. NOTE: You must be 18 years of age to register on the Site and to use the Services.

Information We Collect

Registration: You must register in order to use certain Services and participate in various activities on the Site. In order to register for our Services, you will need to submit contact information, which may include your email address, name, company name, address, phone number and credit card number. The registration form may also ask for certain optional information and may give you choices about how your information may be used by DVA. In addition to registration, we may ask you for information at other times, such as when you report a problem with our Site or Services, or contact DVA via the corporate email address. If you contact DVA, we may keep a record of that correspondence.

Traffic Data: As people buy and sell assets on the Site, we collect traffic data to help us understand how our Site is being used and how we can improve it. This automatically-gathered data includes your computer’s IP or “Internet Protocol” address, statistics about how visitors navigate through our Site, search terms entered, and information provided through the use of “cookies.”

Personalization and Cookies: A cookie is a piece of data sent by us and stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. We use cookies for three reasons: (1) to keep track of your information for your own convenience and to help you avoid having to re-key in data; (2) to help us optimize your online experience by altering our content to provide you with information more likely to be relevant to you; and (3) to help us understand the size of our audience and their traffic patterns within our network. Some of our features depend on the use of cookies. Therefore, while you are accessing the Site, you should ensure that your browser accepts cookies. If a user rejects the cookie, it may still use our Site. The only drawback to this is that the user’s access to our Site will be limited in some areas. Some of our business partners use cookies on our Site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies. The Site may in the future contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called clear gifs or Web bugs) or other advanced technologies that are useful in the provision of services to you. We may use such devices to verify compliance with the General Terms and Conditions or with any promotions on the Site.

Transaction Data: We also track transaction data such as the items that you have bid on, purchased or sold on our service. This data will be associated with your user name that you create when you register.

How Is Personal Information Used?

Providing the Service: The information you provide when you become a registered user is used to facilitate, consummate and monitor your Site activities and to send you administrative information related to the Services or your account. If you believe that any inaccurate or inappropriate information has been obtained or disseminated through your use of this Site, you should contact ________________.

Buyers: Registration information about buyers is not displayed in the auction area. If you are the winning bidder in an auction, your contact information may be provided to the seller. DVA may also provide your information to service companies that can assist you in your transaction, including arranging for removal and transportation of the items that you purchase. DVA makes no representation or warranty concerning such companies or the services that they offer.

Sellers: DVA provides your credit card information to the appropriate credit card company to assess your service fee upon expiration of an auction with a winning bid or a “buy now” purchase, and such information also may be exchanged with other companies for fraud protection and credit risk protection.

DVA Alliances: From time to time, DVA may enter into promotional alliances that introduce users of third-party websites to our services, among other reasons. The companies with whom we enter into such alliances may request that we provide them with information about users who were introduced to _____________.com through their sites. Unless you specify that DVA is not to share your personal information with these companies, we may provide them with information that will allow them to contact you. DVA is not responsible for the privacy practices of these companies or their use of your personal information. If you prefer that we not share your personal information in this manner, see the “opt out” section below.  For example, DVA may provide your contact and information about your interactions with the Site to Angus Productions, Inc. and its affiliates. 

Promotional Use: DVA is not in the business of selling your information to others. However, unless you specify that you would prefer not to hear from us, we may also use the email and mailing addresses that you provide at registration to advise you of upcoming auctions which may be of interest to you and for promotional reasons. To opt-out from these promotional mailings, see the “opt out” section below.

Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we may buy or sell businesses or assets. In such transactions, confidential customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. In the event of a transaction involving the sale of the Site or some or all of DVA’s business, customer and site visitor information may be one of the transferred assets and may become subject to a different privacy policy.

Third Parties: Except as described in this Privacy Policy or as authorized by you, DVA will not disclose any of your contact information to third parties other than in connection with a transaction in which you are involved or upon written request to a verified representative of your company. We may release aggregate information about our users to third parties, but in that event, we will not release information that identifies any user by name or by other contact information. DVA will release information when compelled by court order, or when we believe, in our reasonable discretion, that such disclosure is warranted to cooperate with inquiries by law enforcement agencies. We may provide your personally identifiable information to our affiliates, and our trusted business partners or persons for the purpose of processing that information on behalf of DVA. When this is done, we request that those parties process such information only in accordance with our instructions, and maintain appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

Links to Third Party Sites: This Site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected online by DVA. This privacy policy does not apply to information collected offline.

Security: Your Account Information is password-protected so you have access to this personal information. We use encryption technology for credit card numbers, bank account numbers, passwords and registration information. Remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account by using your computer when you are away from it. Because of the global nature of the Internet, when you give us information, that information may be sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Except as discussed above or otherwise designated, this Site does not use security encryption measures. Therefore, information that you disclose by use of this Site (as with any site that is non-secure), by posting a message or using email, potentially could be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties or use of such information by third parties for their own purposes, legal or illegal. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, DVA cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our Site or Services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use our reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to _____________________.

Protecting Your User Name and Password: It is your responsibility to maintain the privacy of your user name and password. Unauthorized use of your account will enable access to your personal information. Please keep your user name and password in a safe place.

Choice/Opt-out: Our Site provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving certain communications from us at the point where we request information about you. Where indicated just click on the appropriate opt-out button when completing a survey or other form. Please allow a reasonable period of time for your changes to take effect.

To ensure that you will not receive recurring marketing information from us unless you choose to, we will provide you with simple instructions on each marketing email from DVA for you to let us know that you have chosen to stop receiving such emails from us.

Correct / Update: To change your registration data, just go to the “Your Account” area of the Site and choose the information you want to change. If you have questions about this Privacy Policy, (i) your transaction history data or other data collected about you or our security systems, or if you wish to view, edit or delete your personal information, please contact ________________________ and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.
