you make the updates on our site. We will also collect a valid credit card number if you choose to register

card information will be collected to guarantee that you will be able to pay for any items with respect to
which you may place the winning bid. Your telephone number will be used in case we need to contact you

sale or transfer of all or substantially all of our assets, or in the event that we are involved in a merger. In
the event that we disclose your information in the course of any such sale, transfer, or merger, your

please be advised that we will continue to store your PII until such time as you request that it be deleted.
We will not otherwise make your information available to third parties, except when necessary to assist

process, to protect the integrity of our site, and/or to protect the safety and security of site users and

4. Security. We use a variety of methods to protect your information, both during transmission and after
receipt, from unauthorized access, use and disclosure. Any PII that you transmit to us is protected during
transmission by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL technology enables encryption of sensitive
information during online transmissions. Any PII that you transmit to us, with the exception of credit card
information, is then stored on our database servers. Our database servers are both firewall protected and
password protected. In addition, while stored on our database servers, your user password will be
encrypted with the 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). Our database servers are stored with
an off-site agent in secure facilities, and can only be accessed by an authorized representative of our
off-site agent. Our off-site agent takes numerous physical security measures to protect our database
servers from unauthorized access, including: electronic surveillance by Electronic Protection Systems,
Inc.; dedicated network operations center support 24/7/365; security keys to access the server co-location
area; and combination locks on doors used to access equipment in the server co-location area. Your
credit card information, once collected, is sent to USA EPay (registered trademarks of GorCorp Inc.)
(“USA EPay”), for additional storage security. Once your credit card information has been sent to USA
EPay, we can make authorized transactions using your credit card, but even we are unable to access
your credit card information. USA EPay uses various tools, including encryption technology, to protect
confidential data both during the transmission of such data and while such data is being stored. USA
EPay also uses software programs to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or modify information
stored in its systems, or to otherwise cause damage to its systems. In the event that we elect to use a
different payment processor, notice of such election and notice of the payment processor’s data security
practices will be posted as amendments to this policy. While we strive to provide a secure data transfer
and storage environment, there are always potential security risks when doing business over the Internet.
Consequently, we do not represent or guaranty that the information that you transmit to us will remain
secure against all unauthorized access or use. You can assist us with our efforts by preventing
unauthorized access to your user password and to your computer. You should make sure that you sign off
when finished using a shared computer, and you should otherwise take precautions to protect your user
password. If your user password becomes compromised for any reason, you should immediately change
your password, and notify us.
5. Children’s Privacy. Our Web site is designed for adult use only. We will not intentionally collect
children’s PII, but if you believe that we may have done so, please notify us and we will address the issue.
6. Third Parties. We do not control the privacy policies of third parties, so if you disclose your information
to third parties, whether bidders, buyers or sellers, in the course of using our Web site, you may be
subject to different rules with respect to the collection, use, and disclosure of your information.
