("CUAuctions") 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 CUAuctions LLC.
What Information Does CUAuctions Collect on this Web Site?
The information we collect depends upon what you do when visiting our site.
If you visit CUAuctions 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; 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.
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.
This site contains links to other sites, including CUAuctions' Internet partners. CUAuctions is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.
What Does CUAuctions Do With the Information Collected on this Web Site?
CUAuctions' 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.
CUAuctions 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 CUAuctions' 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 CUAuctions, such as CUAuctions' 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. CUAuctions is not responsible for personal information you may provide to third parties in chat rooms, bulletin boards or via e-mail while visiting a CUAuctions' website.
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. CUAuctions does not store this information.
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 CUAuctions' website are not covered by this privacy statement.

Updating or Correcting Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate users' personally identifiable information. This can usually be done by sending a Support Email.
