IP Address and Clickstream Data
Our server automatically collects data about your server's Internet address when you visit us. This information, known as an Internet Protocol address, or IP Address, is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider whenever you're on the Internet. When you request pages from the Sites, our servers may log your IP Address and sometimes your domain name. Your IP Address is used to help identify you and to gather
demographic information about our customers as a whole, but does not include personally identifiable information. Our server may also record the referring page that linked you to us; the pages you visit on the Sites; the other sites you visit after the Sites; the ads you see and/or click on; other information about the type of Web browser, computer, platform, related software and settings you are using; any search terms you have entered on the Sites or a referral site; and other Web usage activity and data logged by our Web servers. We use this information for internal system administration, to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer the Sites. Such information may also be used to gather demographic information, such as country of origin and Internet Service Provider. We may link this information with your Personal Information.

These third party partners will be obligated to protect your confidential information.

Thirdman.auction regards its databases of customer information as a valuable asset. In the event that Thirdman.auction, or substantially all of our assets, are acquired by one or more third parties as a result of an acquisition, merger, sale, reorganization, consolidation or liquidation, such databases containing Personal Information may be one of the transferred assets.

It has become increasingly common for unauthorized individuals to send email messages to consumers by purporting to represent a legitimate company requesting that the consumer provide personal, often sensitive information. Sometimes, the domain name of the email address from which the email appears to have been sent, and the domain name of the Sites requesting such information, appears to be the domain name of a legitimate, trusted company. In reality, such sensitive information is received by an unauthorized individual to be used for purposes of identity theft. This illegal activity has come to be known as "phishing."
If you receive an email or other correspondence requesting that you provide any sensitive information (including your password or credit card information) via email or to a site that does not seem to be affiliated with the Sites, or that otherwise seems suspicious to you, please do not provide such information, and report such request to us at support@ thirdman.auction.
If you have any questions or comments regarding our privacy practices, you may contact us at support@ thirdman.auction. You may also send mail to us with any comments, questions or concerns at:
