Information Sharing

Individual Information. Except as described in following paragraphs of this section, we will not share your Individual Information with unaffiliated third parties unless you have consented to the disclosure or Auction Mobility believes the disclosure is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with a judicial proceeding, subpoena, warrant court order, or legal process, (2) protect and defend our rights and property, (3) protect our customers or users, including from misuse or unauthorized use of the Services, or (4) protect the safety or property of our employees, customers, users or others. Auction Mobility may be required to disclose information to third parties when required by law or under the good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in order to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, or to comply with legal process served on Auction Mobility. Under such circumstances, Auction Mobility may be prohibited by law, court order or other legal process from providing notice of the disclosure, and Auction Mobility reserves the right to not provide such notice in its sole discretion. We also may disclose Individual Information to your agent or legal representative (such as the holder of a power of attorney that you grant, or a guardian appointed for you).

Auction Mobility may disclose or transfer your Individual Information (1) to the Auction House, (2) to any corporate affiliates (for example its subsidiaries or parent corporation), (3) to its service providers (like hosting services), but only for their use to provide services to Auction Mobility, or (3) to an acquirer in connection with the sale of the business or assets of Auction Mobility. We require our service providers that receive or access Individual Information to limit their use and disclosure of your information to the purposes for which you provided it.

Such information will only be shared by us to customize, measure and improve our Site, Application and Services. We are not limited in our use of Aggregate Information that does not permit direct association with any specific individual, or non-identifiable aggregate information about our users.

Processing Payments for Auction Items
Processing Payments for Auction Items

The Application uses a third-party credit card processor with whom the Auction House has entered into an agreement to process payments for auction items that you choose to make through the Services. To make this possible, your Individual Information (including your credit card information) is transmitted via secure (encrypted) means with this third-party payment processor for the sole purpose of completing your order (“Billing Information”). Please note that your Billing Information (including credit card number, expiration date, CVV or security code) is stored by the third party payment processor and not us, and as such, is subject to that third party processor’s privacy policy and terms of use. It is important that you review the privacy policy of our third party processor to understand how your Billing information is stored and processed. Neither we nor the Auction House has any access to Billing Information. The Application only retains the expiration date of your credit card along with your Individual Information to enable the Auction House to process payments for future auction items purchased.

Application Push Notifications, Choice and Opt-Out
