Go Swap Auctions is committed to protecting your online privacy while providing you with the most useful and enjoyable Web experience possible. While you can use many features of Go Swap Auctions anonymously, you are required to provide personal information to gain access to some of our premium content and services.
How we collect and use personal information
Registering for membership on Go Swap Auctions gives you access to all the site's information and features. The only information required is your name, e-mail address, country, and ZIP/postal code. With your approval, we occasionally will send e-mail to notify you about important changes to the site, new services, and special offers from us. If you would rather not receive these e-mail notifications, you can simply indicate that preference either when you register or at any time you modify your account. In addition to receiving e-mail announcements, you can also sign up for daily and weekly e-mail services that provide announcements of changes to our services and special offers.
If you enter a contest or respond to a promotion, we may ask for your postal address so we can notify contest winners and deliver promotional goodies. When you enter this information, we will save it in your member profile so that you won't have to enter it again. We occasionally may also send you postal mail to notify you about important changes to the site, new services, and special offers from us and select Go Swap Auctions partners. If you would rather not receive such information via postal mail, you can indicate this when you enter your address or you can modify your account at any time to indicate your preference.
How we use "cookies"
What we provide to third parties
While Go Swap Auctions does not provide any third-party access to your personal information except to facilitate your own attempts to register with our partners or receive offers from select partners as mentioned elsewhere in this policy, we may provide third parties with aggregate statistics about our customers, traffic patterns, and related site information. This data reflects site usage patterns gathered during millions of customer visits to our Web site each month, but it does not contain behavioral or identifying information about any individual member unless that member has given us permission to share that information.
Go Swap Auctions uses a third-party advertising company to serve ads when you visit our sites. This company may use information (not including your name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number) about your visits to our and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. In addition, we share Web site usage information about visitors to our site with this company for the purpose of managing and targeting advertisements on our sites. For this purpose, we and our third-party advertising company note some of the pages you visit on our sites through the use of pixel tags (also called "clear gifs").

As a registered member, you give Go Swap Auctions and our agents permission to send you e-mails related to the subscription e-mail services to which you subscribe and the Free Product Info topics you select.
If you are under the age of 18, you must not provide your name, e-mail address, or any other identifying information without the consent of your parent or guardian, or as otherwise provided for by applicable law.
