PRIVACY POLICY

TitleAuctions LLC ("TitleAuctions") has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for all web sites owned and operated by TitleAuctions LLC.

What Information Does TitleAuctions Collect on this Web Site?

The information we collect depends upon what you do when visiting our site.

If you visit TitleAuctions only to browse our site and view our content, we collect and store only anonymous information, such as your IP address; the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account); the date and time you access our site; and the Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to our site. We use this information for system administration, to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our site and to help us make our site more useful to visitors.

TitleAuctions also uses cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie tracks the areas on our site that you visit. We use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests, to streamline the login process and to collect anonymous, aggregate data from users. You can adjust your browser settings to reject all cookies or to require your consent to any cookies, but this may prevent you from enjoying all of the features of our site. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site.

Our site's registration and bidding forms require you to give us contact information (i.e. name, email and postal zip code). We use your contact information from the forms to email registration information, transaction-related correspondence and sending special offers and updates.

In addition to registration we may ask you for information at other times, including (but not limited to) when we make special offers and promotions to users of our site, conduct surveys or sell products. If you contact us by e-mail or otherwise, we may keep a record of that correspondence. Our online surveys ask you for contact information (i.e. your email address) and demographic information (i.e. occupational industry, age, or income level). We use the data from our surveys to help us develop product enhancements and future products.

We may use outside ad companies to display ads on our site. These ads may contain cookies. While we use cookies in other parts of our web site, cookies received with banner ads are collected by the ad company, and we do not have access to this information.

This site contains links to other sites, including TitleAuctions' Internet partners. TitleAuctions is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.

What Does TitleAuctions Do With the Information Collected on this Web Site?

TitleAuctions' goal in collecting personal information about you or your business is to provide you with a better experience on our site, including personalized services. Collection of personal information also enables us to deliver more relevant advertisements and content to you via our site.

Billing information is collected and used to bill you for products and services only. Your contact information is also used when necessary to provide services (i.e. technical support). We reserve the right to use an outside shipping company to ship orders and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

TitleAuctions may do research on our users based on information provided to us upon registration, from our server log files and volunteered by our users. We do this to better understand you and provide you with a higher level of service. We may do this research ourselves or have a third party do it. If a third party performs any of this research, it will not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated, anonymous basis, and may then be shared with advertisers or with our business partners.

Other than anonymous, aggregate data, when you are on a TitleAuctions' website and we ask you for personal information about yourself or your business, you are sharing that information with us only, unless specifically stated otherwise. If data is being collected by any company other than TitleAuctions, such as TitleAuctions' Internet partners or other affiliated service providers, you will be notified prior to the time the data is collected. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the collection or sharing by not participating in the offered service. TitleAuctions is not responsible for personal information you may provide to third parties in chat rooms, bulletin boards or via e-mail while visiting a TitleAuctions' website.

Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, TitleAuctions does not disclose any personally identifiable information about you or your business without your permission, except when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, such as where disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating TitleAuctions' Acceptable Use Agreement or may be causing injury to TitleAuctions' or another's rights or property. In the event that TitleAuctions is acquired by or merged into another company, all information collected will be transferred to the other company as one of TitleAuctions' assets and will be governed by the other company's privacy policy after notice and choice is given. For more information see our "Policy Changes Statement."

Tell-A-Friend

If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. TitleAuctions does not store this information.

Security

Whenever TitleAuctions handles your personal information we take steps to ensure that it is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. However, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us online, and you do so at your own risk.

Please be aware that when accessing other web sites that have links on our site, personal information may be collected about you or your business. The information practices of those web sites linked to a TitleAuctions' website are not covered by this privacy statement.

Policy Change Statement

If you are concerned about your privacy with TitleAuctions, please check this site often. Our privacy policy may change from time to time. If, however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via email and/or by posting a notice on our Web site for 30 days.
