Information Collection and Use
Sheriffsale.com LLC is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our users. We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. We collect information from our users when they complete the registration form required for online bidding.
During registration a user is required to give their contact information. This information is used to communicate with the user regarding their account and to provide requested services. We also send the user site and service announcement updates. We request financial information to be used for payment of registration purposes only. If you no longer wish to be a registered member of SheriffSale.com and choose to terminate your membership, you may go to the "My Account" tab and cancel your membership. If a user discovers errors or a user's personally identifiable information changes, the user may go to the "My Account" tab and update the membership record. Request to correct information will be processed immediately. Users may also request that personal information be corrected by emailing us at info@SheriffSale.com.
We may partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
SheriffSale.com contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Sheriffsale.com is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by SheriffSale.com.
From time-to-time SheriffSale.com will request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address), demographic information (such as zip code, age level), and financial information (such as income level). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of SheriffSale.com.
SheriffSale.com takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'. To learn more about SSL, follow this link http:// developer.netscape.com/tech/security/ssl/howitworks.html.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off- line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to info@SheriffSale.com.
