Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Violity collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Violity‘s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Violity‘s visitors use its website. From time to time, Violity may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Violity also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Violity only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that auction bidder IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the auction where the bid was placed.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Violity‘s websites choose to interact with Violity in ways that require Violity to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Violity gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for bidding on auction items to provide a their name, email address, phone number and address. Those who engage in transactions with Violity are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Violity collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with ViolityViolity does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Violity may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Violity may monitor the most popular auctions. Violity may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Violity does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Violity discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its auction administrators, employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that:

  • (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Violity‘s behalf or to provide services available at Violity‘s websites, and
  • (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Violity‘s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Violity will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its auction administrators, employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Violity discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Violity believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Violity, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of an Collectinviolity.com website and have supplied your email address, Violity may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Violity and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Violity takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
