Information We Collect
We collect personally identifiable information ("Personal Data") about you that you provide to us while using the Site. Personal Data includes any and all information that can identify you as a specific individual, including, without limitation, your name, address, phone number, credit card number or e-mail address. We also collect non-personally identifiable information (“Non-Personal Data”), including, without limitation, your log-in name, IP address, search preferences related to specific searches, and bids through your interactions with our Site. Your Non-Personal Data may be linked to your Personal Data under some circumstances, and could be considered Personal Data to the extent such linkage enables you to be personally identified.
Protecting Your Personal Data
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of Personal Data, we will employ reasonable and current Internet security methods and technologies. To protect credit card transactions while in transit, Thuzio currently uses Secure Socket Layer technology to encrypt Personal Data. No method of transmitting information over the Internet, or storing data electronically, is 100% secure, however, and Thuzio therefore cannot provide a guaranty of absolute security.
How We Use the Information We Collect
We use Personal Data to provide you with the products and services from our Site, to build features that will make the services available on the Site easier to use, and to contact you about these services. This includes faster purchase requests, better customer support and timely notice of new services and special offers and more relevant content.
From time to time, Thuzio may contact you to request feedback on your experience using the Site, to assist us in improving the Site, or to offer special savings or promotions to you, as a Site user. If you would prefer not to receive notices of special savings or promotions, you may simply opt-out from receiving them by contacting Thuzio.
