What personally identifiable information is collected
The elgobay.com web site collects information in several ways from different parts of our web site.
Some personal information is gathered when you register. During registration, we ask for your name and email address. We also ask for your street address, city, state/province, zip/postal code, country, telephone number, fax number, company, and the URL of your web site. Although only fields that are marked with an asterisk (*) on the registration field are required. This information is used to assist you in navigating the system by automatically filling in certain forms with your information so that you don't have to continually re-enter it. We collect your browser information in an effort to offer you a customized experience while using our website. Once you register you are no longer anonymous to ElgoBay - you have a username and are able to take full advantage of the many features and offerings of the elgobay.com. We may from time to time send you information about your account at ElgoBay and update you on new products, happenings and improvements.
What cookies are and how they are used
(1) To identify and label all "new" products since your last visit to elgobay.com.
(2) Optionally to permanently save your password on your computer so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit our site.
(3) To enable you to add product to your shopping cart.
Advertising networks that serve advertising onto the elgobay.com web site may also use their own cookies.
The elgobay.com web site may also collect IP addresses for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. We also collect IP addresses to aid Law enforcement, track and prosecute credit card fraud, among other legal requirements.
How your information is used
The primary goal of elgobay.com in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with a customized experience and to assist your navigation throughout the elgobay.com web site. We will not annoy you with offers by email, even in you opt in for our newsletter.
Who is collecting your information
When you are asked for personal information on elgobay.com, you are sharing that information with elgobay.com alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise. However, some activities will, by their very nature, result in your personal information being revealed to other users of elgobay.com.
With whom your information may be shared
As a general rule, ElgoBay will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below. Please see the Terms of Service or Use Agreements for each of our products and services for more detailed information about how your personal information may be shared.
ElgoBay may disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Terms of Service of ElgoBay or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the rights or property of ElgoBay, other users of the ElgoBay, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. ElgoBay may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.
What choices are available to you regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information
If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use most of the elgobay.com, but you will not be able to access areas or use features that require registration.
You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those services of the elgobay.com that require registration in order to participate. These services include the identification of new products that have been posted since your last visit, auto-fillin of the logon form, and the Comparison Shopper feature. You can still use most of the features of the elgobay.com even if you do not accept cookies.
The ElgoBay does not sell or rent user information to anyone. We will notify you at the time of data collection or transfer if your data will be shared with a third party and you will always have the option of not permitting the transfer. If you do not wish to allow your data to be shared, you can choose not to use a particular service.
How you can access, update or delete your information
We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. You may edit or delete your user profile at any time by clicking on the "My Profile" link or graphic provided by elgobay.com, once you are logged in. Once you have logged onto elgobay.com during a given session, wherever you go on elgobay.com, your information will stay with you until or unless you click on the "Logoff" link, which is accessible from the navigation bar or within the "My Profile" screen.
If you are a previously registered user and you have lost or forgotten your password, you may obtain it by email by using our "Forgot Password" feature. Click the button on any login page to request that your password be emailed to you. We cannot provide your password by any other means.
Your elgobay.com account can be deleted at anytime, but doing so will result in not being able to access any of the features of the program that require user registration.
The kind of security precautions that are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information
Other than the administrator of elgobay.com or other authorized personnel of the ElgoBay web site, you are the only person who has access to your personal information. Your user registration is password-protected to prevent unauthorized access. We also use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption to secure and protect your sensitive personal information while using elgobay.com.
We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. ElgoBay.com will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. As an extra security precaution, you may want to logoff once you have completed a session in elgobay.com. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe. We also recommend that you change your password frequently (every three months) depending on how often you use it.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, ElgoBay cannot ensure or warrant the security of all information you transmit to us or from our online services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
How ElgoBay protects children's privacy
ElgoBay is a general audience web site. We do not do any business with minors (under age 18). Minors should not register or bound themselves to any agreement at ElgoBay. Children should always ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to anyone online. Elgobay.com does not share personal information about users under the age of 13 with third parties and we do not sell or rent personal information about any of our users, regardless of age. In addition, ElgoBay will not send any direct email offers to users who indicate they are under the age of 13.
What else you should know about your online privacy
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example, through email - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
