This Policy describes the following:

We collect information about you directly from you and automatically through your use of our Website. We may combine information automatically collected with other information that we have collected about you including from publicly available sources. How We collect and process this information is as follows:
We collect information you (and others) give us when using this Website. As examples:
From time to time, we may collect personal information about you from third party sources which we will use for our business purposes (for example, in order to better serve you with content or promotions). However, we will only use this information where these third parties either have your consent or are otherwise legally permitted or required to disclose your personal information to us.
When you visit our Website, We may collect certain user information automatically from your device. In some territories, including California and countries in the European Economic Area, this information may be considered personal data or personally identifiable information under applicable data protection laws.
More broadly speaking, the user information We collect automatically may include information like your IP address, device type, unique device identification numbers, browser-type, broad geographic location (e.g. country or city-level location) and other technical information. We may also collect user information about how your device has interacted with our Website, including the pages accessed and links clicked.
Collecting this information automatically enables us to better understand the visitors who come to our Website, where they come from, and what content on our Website is of interest to them. We use this information for our business purposes, including internal analytics purposes and to improve the quality and relevance of our Website to our visitors.
Please note that nothing in this Notice addresses, or should be read to limit or restrict, how we collect, use or process anonymous, de-identified, or aggregate information.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We may use information that we collect about you, including personal information, to:
WITH WHOM WE MAY SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH
We do not sell your information to any third parties, or disclose it in exchange for money or other valuable consideration. We do not share your personal information with others except as indicated within this Notice, or when we inform you and give you an opportunity to opt-out of having your personal information shared.
We may share information we collect about you, including personal information, in the following ways:
We use other companies, agents or contractors (“Service Providers”) to perform services on our behalf or to assist us with providing services to you.
We may engage Service Providers to process credit card transactions or other payment methods. We may also engage Service Providers to provide services such as monitoring and developing this Website and our Products/Services; aiding in communications, infrastructure and IT services; customer service; and analyzing and enhancing data. These Service Providers may have access to your personal or other information in order to provide these functions. In addition, some of the above-listed types of information that we request may be collected by third party providers on our behalf.
We may share information with Service Providers and government entities for legal, security, and safety purposes. This includes sharing information in order to enforce policies or contracts, address security breaches, and assist in the investigation of fraud, security issues, or other concerns.
We require Service Providers to agree to take reasonable steps to keep the personal information that we provide to them secure. We do not authorize them to use or disclose your personal information except in connection with providing their services.
YOUR RIGHTS AND CHOICES
In certain circumstances, local data protection laws (such as the Global Data Protection Regulation or California Consumer Privacy Act) may give you rights with respect to personal information if you are located in or are a resident of that country, state, or territory (including if you are located in the EU/EEA).
IMPORTANT: WE ARE ONLY REQUIRED TO HONOR RIGHTS TO THE EXTENT THAT THESE RIGHTS HAVE BEEN GRANTED TO YOU AND APPLY TO YOU UNDER APPLICABLE DATA PROTECTION LAWS. PLEASE CONSULT YOUR LOCAL DATA PROTECTION LAWS TO DETERMINE WHAT RIGHTS MAY BE AVAILABLE TO YOU AND WHEN ACCESS TO THESE RIGHTS ARE LIMITED
These rights differ based upon local data protection laws in your country, state, or territory, but these rights may include one or more of the following:
SECURITY AND STORAGE OF INFORMATION
We take the security of your personal data very seriously. We work hard to protect the personal data that you provide from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, or disclosure. Given the nature of communications and information processing technology, there is no guarantee that personal data will be absolutely safe from access, alteration, or destruction by a breach of any of our physical, technical, and managerial safeguards.
You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your device and account by, among other things, choosing a unique and complex password that nobody else knows or can easily guess and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
We retain the personal data we collect for so long as is reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the data was collected, to perform our contractual and legal obligations, and for any applicable statute of limitations periods for the purposes of bringing and defending claims.
Our Website may contain links to third-party websites and applications. Any access to and use of such linked websites and applications is not governed by this Notice but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third parties. We do not endorse these parties, their content, or any products and services they offer, and we do not endorse these parties, their content, or any products and services they offer, and we are not responsible for the information practices of such third-party websites or applications.
TRANSFER OF YOUR INFORMATION
This Website is based in the United States. Your information may be processed, transferred to, and maintained on, servers and databases located within the U.S. and elsewhere where the privacy laws may not be as protective as your jurisdiction[TR3] . We reserve the right to transfer your information to and from any state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction. Your consent to this Notice followed by your submission or our collection of such information represents your agreement to any such transfer.
DO NOT TRACK
Web browsers can transmit “Do Not Track” signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personal information about an individual’s online activities over time and across third party websites or online services.
Currently, no universally accepted standard exists for how to interpret such signals, although work to create consensus is ongoing. Therefore, we do not currently respond to, or take any action with respect to web browser Do Not Track.
CHILREN AND PRIVACY
TruBids is not directed to children under eighteen (18) years of age and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18. If we discover that a child under 18 has provided us with personal information, we will promptly delete such personal information from our systems.
