1. WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION IS COLLECTED?
Personal information of yours that we may collect and store includes, but is not limited to, first and last name; home, billing or other physical address (including street name, name of a city or town, state, postal code); email address; telephone number; fax number; credit card information; IP address; bidding activity; shipment activity; returns activity; URL referral data; support communications including email and telephone logs; site search activities; wish list; website usage; any other identifier that permits Alligogo to make physical or online contact with you; and any information Alligogo collects online from you and maintains in association with your account, such as your Alligogo username and Alligogo password.
Personal information is collected from you when you voluntarily register for membership services with Alligogo. These services include receiving electronic newsletters, purchasing items, and entering contests and participating in other opportunities provided by Alligogo. We also collect email addresses from anyone who sends us mail or request technical or other help. This information enables Alligogo to improve its site to make your online visits more productive and enjoyable.
Information about your activities on our web pages (such as the pages you access most frequently or the search terms you enter) is collected by tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the web. The computers that deliver the Web pages to you automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from our site, our server logs your IP address.
2. WHO IS COLLECTING THE INFORMATION?
Unless specifically stated otherwise, when you share personal information through our website, you are sharing that information only with Alligogo, its related service providers, and, if applicable, the third party vendor providing the purchased item.
3. HOW IS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION USED?
Alligogo uses the personal information we collect to obtain payment for and to ship the products you purchase, to improve the content of our site, to respond to your inquiries and provide user support, to notify you about updates to our site or promotional offers or for marketing opportunities that we believe will be of interest to you and to investigate violations of our terms and conditions of use.
4. WITH WHOM MAY YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION BE SHARED?
By placing an order or bidding on an item, you are granting your consent to allow us to share your information with the law enforcement agency or other third party seller or vendor providing the purchased item. To the extent that you make a purchase, you are granting your consent to allow us to share your information with related service providers (such as a credit card processor for processing payment and a shipping company for shipping your purchase to you), in each case to the extent reasonably necessary to fulfill that order.
Alligogo may divulge personal information to a third party service provider (such as a credit card processor) to resolve suspected fraud or other inappropriate use (or abuse) issues. In such an instance, Alligogo would divulge the information to resolve the issue whether you or Alligogo was suspected of the misuse, and such information would be divulged for the sole and exclusive purpose of resolving allegations of misuse or abuse.
Alligogo may also divulge personal information if such information is subpoenaed or requested by a law enforcement agency as part of an investigation. In addition, Alligogo may divulge personal information if Alligogo believes that its site has been used to commit unlawful acts, or acts that might endanger the health or safety of another user or of the general public.
Lastly, in the event that Alligogo or substantially all of its assets are acquired, Alligogo would transfer all customer data and other personal information of its users to the new owner.
5. WHAT ARE COOKIES AND HOW ARE THEY USED?
Alligogo uses “cookies” to record information. A cookie is a small data file that websites store on your hard drive when you visit them. Cookies allow us to measure activity in our site and to improve your user experience by remembering your password and viewing preferences, and allowing you to visit our site without re-registering. Cookies allow us to determine which areas and features of our site are more popular by measuring user activity.
Most browsers are set to accept cookies. If you prefer, you may set your browser to not accept cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent. However, some parts of our site such as the member’s only area (i.e., the bidding area) will not function properly if you choose not to accept cookies.
6. WHAT CHOICES ARE AVAILABLE TO YOU REGARDING COLLECTION, USE AND DISTRIBUTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
If you indicated when registering that you are interested in receiving offers or information from Alligogo, we may occasionally send you information regarding our products and services. If you no longer wish to receive such information, you may do so by editing your Alligogo account information.
You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies, you will be unable to use those Alligogo services that require registration.
7. WHAT KIND OF SECURITY PROCEDURES ARE IN PLACE TO PROTECT AGAINST THE LOSS, MISUSE OR ALTERATION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION UNDER PROPERTY ROOM’S CONTROL?
Your Alligogo account information is password protected so that only you have access to it. We strongly recommend that you not divulge your password to anyone.
There are several places on the Alligogo site where you can transmit credit card information to complete a purchase transaction, or for verification purposes. Any time we ask for a credit card number we transmit that credit card number in an encrypted format. We use industry standard, SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. Alligogo.com stores all your personal information on secure servers and in an encrypted format.
No Internet data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Alligogo cannot assure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
Under no circumstances, including but not limited to negligence, shall Alligogo be liable for any special, incidental or consequential damages that result from the use of the information or materials on Alligogo, even if Alligogo or its authorized representative has been advised of the possibility of such damages. This section should also be read in conjunction with the full User Agreement found on this site.
