We are publishing this policy to advise you what information we collect at www.bidcorp.com(the "Site") and how we intend to use that information.
In general, you can visit BidCorp.com without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information.
Our web servers do collect general information about each visit--such as the domain name of the originating server and the type of browser--and aggregate this information with similar information from other visitors to generate website logs. These logs show, for example, the number of visits within a specific time frame and the average time spent on the site, as well as the frequency particular pages are viewed. We use these web site logs to evaluate and improve the Site. We may share this information with our affiliates; or our advertisers or sponsors for the same purpose.
We use this information for the purposes for which you furnish it to us. When we request personal information, our online forms indicate the purposes for which we intend to use your personal information, and we will use the personal information you provide for those purposes.
For example, we use the personal information (such as your name and e-mail address) when you register at the Site for fulfilling transactions and prizes and for providing you promotional material regarding the Site and our affiliates. Similarly, if you send us an inquiry via email, we use the information you provide to analyze and respond to your email.
If you do not express a preference in an online form, email or other communication with us, we may include you on mailing lists for our products and services (including products and services of our affiliates or their advertisers or sponsors) if we believe you might find this information interesting or useful. If you prefer not to be included on our lists, please advise us at the time you submit the online form, email or other communication. You may ask us to remove you from our mailing lists at any time.
We strongly urge you NOT to submit to us sensitive information, such as your Social Security number or credit card information, unless it is absolutely necessary for the purposes of your communication. Even though we strive to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we are alerted that such personal information has been submitted to us, and it is specifically identified, we will promptly remove the information from our database.
Our employees and contractors will have access to the personal information we collect or receive online if they require this information in order to perform their jobs. These people are subject to obligations that restrict dissemination of the information to third parties. We have also established appropriate physical, electronic and managerial practices aimed at protecting the information we collect online from unauthorized access, maintaining data accuracy and ensuring the appropriate use of the information.
We may share information with one of our affiliates, joint venture partners, suppliers, sponsors and advertisers--because we determine that the person is in a better position to respond or it is important for that person to be aware of the information. If you would prefer that we not furnish your information in this manner, please advise us in advance. You should be aware, however, that this type of instruction may impair our ability to properly respond to you or process the information you provide.
We will not sell your personal information to any third party outside of a corporate sale, merger, consolidation or other similar event, without your consent.
We will release your personally identifiable information, as required by law or if pertinent to a judicial or governmental investigation.

However, if you refuse the cookies from on the Site, you may find that some services do not function properly or may be considerably slower.
"Cookies" are small bits of computer code that are transmitted to a user's computer when the user accesses a web site, and then stored on the user's computer for future access by the cookie provider.
