Information We Collect On the Site and How We Use It
can visit the Site and learn about the services we provide without providing
personal information. You do need to
provide personal information, however, to sell or bid on Items, and to
participate in our user forums and other interactive portions of the
Site. In addition, certain personal
information and non-personally identifiable information, such as IP address, may
be collected automatically by us and our advertisers. Please read carefully below to understand
your choices in this regard.
1. Registration and Transaction Information. The Site's registration process requires users to provide us valid and accurate contact information including name, address, phone number, birth date and email address (collectively, “Registration Information”). For fraud prevention purposes, users electing to provide as their sole email contact an email address from a free email service provider (such as Yahoo!® Mail, Google® Gmail, or Hotmail®) are required to enter credit card information at the time of registration, and the card is verified by authorizing a small amount through the credit card processing networks.
In certain circumstances your registration information may be verified through so-called “credit header” information. You may be required to answer a multiple-choice questionnaire compiled from information managed by consumer and business information sources. These questions can include elements from your financial history. This is done as an identity verification and fraud prevention measure. Because this verification service is provided by a third party, we do not collect or store any personal information from this process, other than the fact that your name and address were or were not verified.
We collect certain information submitted during transactions on the Site based on your activities, including all purchases, as well as shipping and billing information, and other information you provide in connection with buying or shipping an item (collectively, “Transaction Information”). We may also collect certain personal information that you provide through message board discussions, chats, correspondence or dispute resolution.
In addition to the General Purposes, Registration Information, Transaction Information and other personal information that you provide may be used in the following ways:
Please see “Communications From the Site and Your Choices” below for information on controlling communications from us.
2. Financial Information. If you list Items on the Site, we collect financial information including bank account and/or credit card number, expiration date, card security code and billing address. As noted under “Registration and Transaction Information” above, we also collect credit card information from those who register using an email address from a free email provider such as Yahoo!™ Mail or Hotmail™ or Google’s Gmail. In addition to the General Purposes, Financial information is used to bill you for transactions you carry out on the Site and to collect on fees and debts incurred through the use of the Site. If your account is past due and collection must be pursued, your Registration and Transaction Information (including financial information) may be shared with collection agents and/or credit reporting agencies. We share financial information with non-affiliated third parties to facilitate the completion of transactions on the Site as specified above, to respond to subpoenas, for other legal compliance purposes, and for billing and collections.
3. Contests and Surveys. If you decide to enter contests or surveys featured from time to time on the Site, you may be asked for personal information in addition to your Registration Information. In addition to the General Purposes, this information is used in order to administer the contest or survey (for example, to contact the winner) or as otherwise disclosed on the Site at the time we collect the information.
4. Information Requests. We may ask you to provide personal information in order to allow us to respond to your requests for information or other requests made over the Site.
5. Social Media. We may collect your user name and other information you transmit to us over social media platforms such as Facebook® or Twitter® when you interact with AquaDeals.com’s specific page or social media account. In addition to the General Purposes, we use the information you provide on social media to respond to your requests or questions, to improve our services, and for other purposes as disclosed at the time of the interaction.
6. Emails from AquaDeals.com. Any email messages generated by the Site result directly from the user's actions (such as Registration Information, or Transaction Information such as a purchase of an Item, or your choice to subscribe to certain communications), or as necessary to inform you of changes to the Site or events related to the Site, or changes to the Site rules or policies. Users may opt-out of receiving many future mailings; see the section below entitled “Communications from the Site and Your Choices.”
