We recognise that you value your privacy. The Policy provides information about the use and disclosure of Personal Information (information pertaining to you and/or your organisation, including but not limited to (including, but not limited to, your name, surname, email address, business name, physical street address, mailing address and postcode, business phone and business fax, mobile phone, business category and business type) and Personally Identifiable Information (information from which you and/or your organisation may be identified) collected about you on the Site. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.
It is not permitted to for Buyers or Sellers to use hidden identities or pseudonyms when transacting on the Site. Competing Buyers will be able to see each others bids but not see each others identity. Buyers of the same Registered User will be visible to each other (for example, a Registered User may have two or more Authorised Users who buy Media Lots; if one Authorised User within the user group places a bid in an auction, then the remaining Authorised Users from the same group will be able to see the identity of the Authorised User placing the bid). You must reveal your real identity to any Registered User with whom you enter into negotiations in respect of any Media Lots, prior to concluding any transaction with the other Registered User. A Registered User will require that you disclose your real identity to him or her as a pre-condition to negotiating or transacting with you.
Managing Users appointed by Registered Users shall manage their Registered Accounts. Managing Users get full access to PII (personally identifiable information) for each and every Authorised User for their Registered User.
