Data Collection

You may visit Surestbid at any time without intentionally revealing any personal information about yourself. However, when you visit our website, we may collect and store your computer and connection information, statistics on page views, traffic to and from Surestbid, advertisement data, IP address and standard web log information, and information from other companies, such as demographic and navigation data.

For you to actively participate in Surestbid we do need some of your personal information. Once you provide us with your required personal information, you are no longer anonymous. In providing us with your personal information, you consent to the transfer and storage of such information on our servers.

When you register on Surestbid, we will collect the following required information: email address, first and last name; all transactional information based on your activities on Surestbid; shipping, billing and other information relating to any purchase or shipping; any correspondence sent to us; and other supplemental information from third parties.

Use of Data

Our purpose for collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, efficient, and customized experience. By signing up, you agree that we may use your personal information to: provide the services and customer support you request; resolve disputes, collect fees, and troubleshoot problems; prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities, and enforce our Terms & Conditions; customize, measure and improve our services, content and advertising; inform you about our services, targeted marketing, service updates, and promotions; and compare information and verify it with third parties for accuracy.

Disclosure of Personal Data

We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy, respond to claims that a listing or other content violates the rights of others, or protect anyone's rights, health, or safety. This information will be disclosed under applicable laws and regulations.

We may also share your personal information with third parties assisting our business operations under contract, including but not limited to fraud investigations and debt collection, with law enforcement or other governmental officials if required or permitted by law. Our third party service providers are prohibited from using or disclosing your personal information for any purpose other than to provide this assistance to us and are required to protect personal information collected by them on our behalf or disclosed to them by us and to comply with the general privacy principles described in this Privacy Policy.

We also reserve the right to disclose and/or transfer personal information to a third party in the event of a proposed or actual purchase, sale (including a liquidation, realization, foreclosure or repossession), lease, merger, amalgamation or any other type of acquisition, disposal, transfer, conveyance or financing of all or any portion of Surestbid or of any of the business or assets or shares of Surestbid or a division thereof in order for you to continue to receive the same products and services from the third party.

We do not share your personal information with third-party advertisers.

Your Information on Surestbid

Once you have been approved as a registered user with Surestbid, you will be required to choose a username. This username will be displayed throughout Surestbid and, therefore, provided to the public. If you win an auction, Surestbid will display the number of bids and naira value of those bids when the auction ends. Unless you associate your username with your personal information, other users will not be able to personally identify your activities on Surestbid.

When visiting Surestbid from a public or shared computer, certain information about you, such as your user name, may also be visible to others who may use that computer after your use. It is your responsibility to ensure private information is removed from the public or shared computer should you choose to use one.

Access, Review and Change of Personal Data

You can access, review, and change most of your personal information by logging on to Surestbid at any time. However, some of your personal information can only be changed by contacting our Privacy Officer. Accurate information is required for billing and delivery purposes. You are required to promptly update your personal information if changes occur or information is inaccurate.

Closing Your Account

Upon closing your account, Surestbid will remove your personal information from view as soon as reasonably possible, based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We do retain personal information from closed accounts only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected and to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, assist with any investigations, enforce our Terms & Conditions, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law

Use of Cookies at our Website

Surestbid uses so-called "cookies", which are files that are stored on your computer that can be retrieved to assist in customizing your experience with the online service. The information saved supports the functionality of the site, for example, by keeping track of your visual preferences or controlling the frequency of "pop-up" windows. You are free to prevent cookies from being saved on your hard drive by adjusting the corresponding settings in your browser. However, turning off these settings may result in limited functionality.

Security Measures

Your Surestbid account and profile and the information contained therein are password protected. Please note that you are not permitted to provide your password to anyone else. Surestbid will never ask for your password in e-mail or over the phone. Please remember to log out of your account and to close your Internet browser window when you leave the Surestbid site; this is especially important if you use a PC in public locations. We assume no liability for the abuse or misuse of login data and passwords used.

Surestbid treats data as an asset that must be highly protected. We use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure our security measures protect your personal information, whether in electronic or hard copy form, against loss, theft, and unauthorized access and disclosure. Access to your personal information is restricted to selected employees or representatives. In addition, we employ generally accepted information security techniques, such as firewalls, access control procedures, and cryptography, to protect personal information against loss and unauthorized access. However, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private when shared over the Internet.

Protection from Web Crawlers or Spam

Surestbid assures you that we will use your e-mail address with your express consent only for the purposes stated in the Terms & Conditions. Except as otherwise set out in this Privacy Policy, we will not rent, sell, license, or trade your e-mail address to third parties, and we will prevent your e-mail address from being recorded by "web crawlers" or "web spiders" to the best of our ability. If you believe that your e-mail address has been recorded in this way, please contact our Privacy Officer as described below immediately.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may amend this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in legal or regulatory obligations or changes in the manner in which we deal with personal information at any time by posting the new Privacy Policy on Surestbid. Surestbid reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time without notice to you. Consequently, you should review this Privacy Policy for changes each time you visit Surestbid.
