Your Online Source for Horse Advertising
Information We Collect
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience. This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customize our service to make your experience easier.
In general, you can browse our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. If you choose to use our services, we may require you to provide contact and identity information, billing information, and other personal information as indicated on the user registration form. Where possible, we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional. You always have the option to not provide information by choosing not to use a particular service or feature.
If you choose to advertise on our site, we collect information about your advertisement. We also collect other user's viewing activity for this listing.
If you establish a credit account with us to pay the fees we charge, we collect some additional information, including a billing address, a credit card number and a credit card expiration date.
If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the site, we may collect such information into a file specific to you.
Our Use of Your Information
We use your information to facilitate the services you request. If you choose to list an item for sale on our site or open a credit account, or otherwise provide us with your credit card information, we use your address and billing information to bill you and provide associated support.
You agree that we may use personally identifiable information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyze site usage, improve our content and product offerings, and customize our site's content, layout, and services. These uses improve our site and better tailor it to meet your needs.
Our Disclosure of Your Information
As a matter of policy, we do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party.
Throughout the site, (if you choose to advertise) your identifiable information is listed on each listing that you add. As a result, other users and third parties might send you unsolicited email. Although our pages are coded with robot exclusion headers, others may illegally attempt to automatically collect your email address from our site. Even if your User ID is not your email address, your User ID can be used to identify you.
Your Use of Other Users' Information
In order to facilitate interaction among all NetEquine.com users, our service allows you limited access to other users' contact information. By viewing the NetEquine website, you agree that, with respect to other users' personally identifiable information that you obtain through the site, NetEquine, Inc. hereby grants to you a license to use such information only for: (a) NetEquine-related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages, (b) using services offered through NetEquine (e.g. Organizations, Insurance, and Hauling Services), and (c) any other purpose that such user expressly agrees to after adequate disclosure of the purpose(s). In all cases, you must give users an opportunity to remove themselves from your database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them. In addition, under no circumstances, except as defined in this Section, can you disclose personally identifiable information about another user to any third party without our consent and the consent of such other user after adequate disclosure.
NetEquine, Inc. and our users do not tolerate spam. Therefore, without limiting the foregoing, you are not licensed to add a NetEquine user, even a user that you plan to contact for purchasing an item, to your mailing list (email or physical mail) without their express consent after adequate disclosure. To report NetEquine related spam to NetEquine, please send an email to email@example.com .
Use of Email Tools
If you send and email using the Email This Auction to a Friend service to an email address that is not registered in our community, we do not use that email addresses for any purpose other than to send your email. We do not rent or sell these email addresses. We generally discard the email addresses some time after they have been used to send your email.
Control of Your Password
Reviewing and Changing Your Personally Identifiable Information
We offer you the ability to automatically review and change the information you submit to us by logging into the site and entering in the new information yourself. Generally, we will not modify your information based on your request because it is very difficult to authenticate your account manually.
You can change your email address, password, contact information, and notification preferences by going to the My Account page after you login.
Upon your request, we will deactivate your account, contact information, billing information, shipping information, and financial information from our active databases to prevent your information from being shared with other users. To make this request, email firstname.lastname@example.org . Such information will be deactivated as soon as reasonably possible based on your account activity.
We will retain in our files information you have requested to remove in some circumstances, such as to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our User Agreement. Further, such prior information is never completely removed from our databases due to technical and legal constraints, including stored "back up" systems. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personally identifiable information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests.
NetEquine uses industry standard practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, including "firewalls" and Secure Socket Layers. NetEquine treats data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company.
