WellAuctioned.com strives to offer its visitors the many advantages of
Internet technology and to provide an interactive and personalized experience.
We may use Personally Identifiable Information (your name, e-mail address,
Please note this policy applies only to information collected by
WellAuctioned.com online and does not impact information collected or used by
WellAuctioned.com or its affiliates through other means.
How we gather information from users.
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the
activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. You can
visit many pages on our site without providing any information. Other pages may
prompt you to provide information, such as when you register for access to
portions of our site, sign up for membership, participate in auction simulations, or purchase research reports and auction tokens. You may also provide information when you
participate in voting and polling activities, message
boards and chat rooms and other interactive areas of our site.
Like most Web sites, WellAuctioned.com also collects information automatically
and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our
visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or
use "cookie" technology. Among other things, the cookie may store your user
name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each
time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular
advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we
may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can
choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser
to refuse to accept cookies, but doing so may limit your ability to access
certain portions of the site or may require you to re-enter your user name and
password. Additionally we may not be able to customize the site's features
according to your preferences.
What we do with the information we collect.
We will use your information only as permitted by law. Aggregated Information
(information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways.
As one example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with
similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited
most or what features are most attractive. We also analyze aggregated information to determine how different types of users of our systems (e.g. retail investors or institutional investors) vary in their bidding in our simulate auctions. Aggregated Information may
occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners, but cannot
be used to contact you individually.
We also collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more
individualized content and advertising. For example, we may use Personally
Identifiable Information collected on WellAuctioned.com to communicate with
you regarding our Terms of Service
our partners, administration of contests, processing e-commerce transactions and other topics we think you
might find of interest. While we may contact you about opportunities with third parties, we will not share your personally identifiable information with any third party except as requested by regulatory or similar agencies (e.g. NASD) or as otherwise required by law.
Personally Identifiable Information collected by WellAuctioned.com may also be
used for other purposes including but not limited to site administration and
troubleshooting. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the
operation of our site (our Web hosting service for
example) may access such information.
As we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with
other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be
among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response
to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to
do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us,
and/or whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary to give such information to
law enforcement authorities. Please note we may not provide you with notice
prior to disclosure in such cases.
Your choice to opt out.
The quality information and services on WellAuctioned.com is supported by advertising revenue and a limited program of e-mail marketing may become an important element of our online publishing business. Like other Web publishers, we may e-mail you periodically about services, features, products, special offers and unique content we believe might interest you.

the use of this technology or the resulting information and is not responsible
for any actions or policies of such third parties.
