At BidNet, the privacy and protection of your personal and financial information is very important to us. That's why we've created this privacy statement, which fully describes our information gathering and dissemination practices. It is the best way we can demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. BidNet uses your personal information for the following purposes:
When you register with BidNet, we ask for your name, company name and e-mail address. We use this to contact you when necessary. BidNet may also send you occasional promotional e-mail messages should we begin to offer new services that we believe you may be interested in.
Use of your Information
We may also use information from your account based on your site visits to generate statistics and aggregate reports for internal use, which may be shown to affiliates, subsidiaries, licensees, successors, and partners. These statistics and aggregate reports will not contain any personally identifiable information and your identity will be kept anonymous. Certain confidential information -- such as your password -- will not be disclosed in any of these reports.
If you sign up for a service we offer, and decide to pay by credit card, the information you give -- such as your credit card number, purchase information, and contact information -- is provided to the banking merchant. Credit card numbers are not kept or stored in any of BidNet's databases. We will not disclose your personal information to third parties, except to the extent necessary to provide you with a requested service, under circumstances required by law, or -- in limited cases -- to our business partners as outlined in this policy.
You will not be contacted directly by any third party as a result of your relationship with BidNet.
Our site has stringent security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of information under our control.
When you transmit credit card information to complete a purchase or verify data, we always transmit that credit card number in an encrypted format. We use the industry standard 128-bit SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
In addition to our encryption standards, your BidNet account information is password-protected so that you and only you have access to this personal information. Please do not disclose your password to anyone. Always remember to sign out of your BidNet account and close your browser window when your transactions are complete. This helps keep your account safe.
While we strive to protect your personal information, no data transmission over the Internet is guaranteed to be 100% secure. Thus, BidNet cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information during transmission to or from our site, and you submit information to us at your own risk. However, we do our best to ensure the highest level of security on all of our systems.
Our websites contain links to other sites. BidNet is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other websites.
