What Information Is Collected?
“Personally identifiable information” means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, or any other contact information, and credit card information. When you/end users use our website or services, ClickBid may collect from you/end users any personally identifiable information. ClickBid also automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your/end user’s browser, including your IP address, cookie information and the page you/end users request. You/end users can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you/end users might not be able to take advantage of many of our features.
ClickBid may keep a cached copy of the content you/end users serve us as a part of your/end users use of the service for an indeterminate amount of time, including media files and XML files. To assist in development, we may keep copies of HTTP requests and responses in your/end users notification log, available only to you/end users. If your/end users web server does not specify that we can cache your content, we will not keep a cached copy of any data transmitted through our service during use, but we may still maintain copies in your notification log. If data privacy is a concern, make sure your/end user’s server does not allow us to cache such content, and contact us so that we may turn off other application logging around requests to and responses from your application. We may keep use log, notification log, billing/payment, and other log data for at least six months from the date of entry.
