Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person.
Here are some examples of the types of personal information bidpin may collect and how we may use it.
We may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, and credit card information.
When talking with a customer support specialist through our live chat system, we may collect any additional information you voluntarily disclose.
The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on bidpin’s latest service announcements and upcoming events. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by contacting bidpin and electing to opt-out.
We also use personal information to help us create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our services, content and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes.
From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with bidpin, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve bidpin’s services and customer communications.
We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identification, Internet protocol addresses, location, and the time zone where a user logs on, registers, or otherwise interacts with bidpin.com so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our services and advertising.
If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
As is true of most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click stream data.
We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. bidpin may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.
In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the bidpin website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.
Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.
Personal information will only be shared by bidpin to provide or improve our services, including processing payment and preventing fraud in online payment transactions; it will not be shared with third parties for marketing purposes.
bidpin shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever bidpin operates.
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for bidpin to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
