Registration Information. When Buyer registers to participate in a Charyn Web auction, Buyer must complete the registration form, submitting certain personal information. Charyns practice is to retain that information and incorporate it into Charyns customer database. Buyer must be at least 18 years of age to register at or to use the Charyn Website.
Use of Information. Charyn does not intend generally to share, rent or sell any of Buyers personal information without Buyers consent. Charyn will take all reasonable measures to hold with the utmost of care and security, information that Buyer provides to Charyn. Within this framework, Buyers participation in an auction shall imply Buyers consent to allow Charyn to provide (i) Buyers contact information to the seller if Buyer is the winning bidder; and (ii) Buyers credit card information to the appropriate company to: (a) evaluate Buyers credit worthiness; (b) protect against fraud; and (c) execute Buyers purchase. Charyn shall have no obligation or liability of any nature with respect to any such company or the services it provides. Charyn will use Buyers contact information to advise Buyer of future auctions and other similar promotions, unless Buyer advises Charyn that Buyer no longer wishes to be so advised.
Tracking of Information. Charyn tracks information about its customers and transactions both to be able to measure and evaluate the usefulness of the Charyn Website and to maintain records with respect to individual sales. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, Charyn makes no representation that it will, shall have no obligation to, and shall have no liability if is fails to, record or maintain any information with respect to any Buyer transaction. Charyn may use information about Buyer gained from the registration process or from tracking in providing Buyer specific auction material or other information. Additionally, Charyn may disclose to suppliers, trade sources and other persons, non-identifying information gained from tracking, such as aggregate statistics about its users, traffic patterns and similar site information, generally for uses such as marketing, promotional, advertising and product development. Similarly, Charyn may share non-identifying personal information in aggregate or summary form to its suppliers, customers, potential partners and other third parties.
Security. Charyn uses industry standard secure server software to prevent third party access to Buyers contact information. The measures include encryption technology, passwords and security protocols. Nevertheless, as with other websites, Buyer must recognize that Charyn cannot absolutely protect against interception by third parties. In addition to security on the Charyn Website, Charyn also uses security measures to protect information that is stored in its offices.
Extraordinary Disclosure. Although Charyns policy is not to use or share the personal information about Buyers in ways unrelated to what is described above without also providing Buyer an opportunity to opt out of such unrelated use, Charyn may disclose personal information about a Buyers or its use of the Charyn Website, for any reason Charyn believes is reasonable or required under the circumstances, including to address any law or regulation, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, to respond to any governmental or legal request for such information, to disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Charyn Website Agreement, to operate the Charyn Website properly, or to protect Charyn and any other buyer.
Use by Children. Charyn does not intend for any person less than 18 years old to have any access to the Charyn Website. No one under 18 years old may provide any information to the Charyn Website.
Opt-Out Policy. Charyn provides any Buyer with the opportunity to cease receiving communications from Charyn at the Buyers option. At the time of registration, Buyer may check the box that indicates that Buyer is interested in receiving information on future auctions and related information. If Buyer does not check the box, Charyn will not send Buyer such information. If Buyer has checked the box requesting to be so notified and later decides that it no longer wishes to be notified, it may, to any email that it later receives from Charyn, clearly request to be removed from Charyns email list, such as by putting "Remove" in the subject line of the reply email, by emailing Charyn at email@example.com, or by telephone Charyn at (415) 621-5733.
How to Modify Buyers Information. Buyer may access and modify information provided by Buyer during registration. To modify such information, contact Charyn Customer Service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
