USBid.com has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site.
Last updated: 1/1/2012
Information We Collect
- We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site.
- Our site registration form requires users to give us contact information (like your name and email address), unique identifiers -- like your Tax ID -- and financial information -- like your credit card information.
- We use customer contact information from the registration form to send the user information about our company. The customer contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary.
- Cookies are stored on your hard drive, not on our site. Most cookies are "session cookies," meaning that they are automatically deleted at the end of a session. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on our site and you may be required to reenter your password more frequently during a session.
- This site contains links to other sites. USBid.com is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.
Our Use of Your Information
- We use personally identifiable information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and product offerings, and to customize our site's content, layout, and services. We believe these uses allow us to improve our site and better tailor it to meet our users' needs.
- By accepting the User Agreement you expressly agree to receive this information. We use your email address, your mailing address, and phone number to contact you regarding administrative notices, new product offerings, and communications relevant to your use of the site. If you do not wish to receive these communications, you may have the ability to opt-out; see the opt-out statement at the bottom of the page.
- We use information in the file we maintain about you, and other information we obtain from your current and past activities on the site, to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our User Agreement. At times, we may look across multiple users to identify problems or resolve disputes, and in particular, on rare occasions we may evaluate your information to look for users using multiple User IDs or aliases.
Our Disclosure of Your Information
- By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.
- We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us to legal liability. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will remain private.
- As a general proposition, we do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party.
Control of Your Information
- Except as specifically permitted by this section, you may not disclose your USBid password to any third parties nor share it with any third parties. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personally identifiable information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf.
- Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password as detailed in the Updates section below. You may, however, disclose your password to certain third parties with whom USBid has entered into specific contractual and technical arrangements designed to safeguard your password ("Authorized Password Users").
USBid uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.
Choice Opt-Out / Corrections / Updates
Our site provides members the opportunity to opt-out receiving communications from us and our partners at the point where we request information about the visitor. It also gives members the option to change and modify information previously provided.
