Rockhurst Auctions Privacy Policy

At Rockhurst Auctions, the privacy of our clients and other website visitors will be treated with the utmost urgency and protected at all costs. We do not sell your information to third parties nor do we provide it for any third party’s general commercial usage. Any information disseminated to parties’ external to Rockhurst Auctions is anonymous in nature – for example: the prices realized for a particular auction may include the price paid for a lot.

This Privacy Policy applies to all types of information collected from users, whatever the source. By using the services and/or registering for an account with Rockhurst Auctions, you are accepting the terms of this Privacy Policy, and you are consenting to our collection, use, disclosure, retention, and protection of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

We collect any and/or all of the following, depending on what particular form you fill out, and store the data at our operations centers in the United States. Our online forms collect your name, email address, address, telephone number, and information about your collecting and selling habits and interests. Our registration for participating in online auctions collects your name, email address, address, telephone number, and a valid credit card. We may also obtain information about you in person, or through mail, email, text, social media or other source.

We automatically record your IP address, session duration, transaction data, the order and addresses of the pages you visit, and in most cases the data that you enter on those pages. We use all of this information to improve the navigation, functionality, and general service that our website provides.

Use of Information

Rockhurst Auctions researches our customers’ usage patterns and demographics based on the information provided to us during their experiences on our website. We do this to better understand our customers’ needs and enhance our service. This information is compiled and analyzed for internal use.

Registration qualifies a user as a Rockhurst Auctions’ customer and regardless of any regulation to the contrary, such user agrees, until this consent is revoked in writing, that Rockhurst Auctions may from time to time contact the user concerning sale and purchase opportunities available through Rockhurst Auctions.

Rockhurst Auctions may employ third parties to perform functions on its behalf, including, but not limited to: fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Finally, we may disclose information to fulfill certain legal and regulatory requirements or if we believe, in good faith, that such disclosure is legally required or necessary to protect others’ rights or to prevent harm.

Other than as stated herein, all information is held in confidence by Rockhurst Auctions.
