Updated: 2016-03-31

This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into the PVBid Inc Terms of Service (the “Terms”). The term “PVBid,” “we,” and “us” includes PVBid Inc and our affiliates and subsidiaries.

Privacy is Important

We are committed to protecting our customers’ and their customers’ personal and financial information. In the course of providing our services, we need to collect and maintain certain nonpublic personal information. This Privacy Policy answers some of the questions about what nonpublic personal information we collect, what we do with it, and how we protect it.

We collect the e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail, aggregate information on what pages consumers access or visit, and information volunteered by the consumer (such as survey information and/or site registrations). The information we collect is used for PVBid related business, to improve the content of our Web pages and improve the quality of our service.  The personal information we collect is not shared with or sold to other organizations for commercial purposes, except to provide products or services you’ve requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:

  • It is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Terms of Service of the specific application, or as otherwise required by law.
  • We transfer information about you if PVBid is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, PVBid will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

 

All other terms not defined herein will have the meanings set forth in the Terms.

“Personal Information” means information that alone or when in combination with other information may be used to readily identify, contact, or locate you or your customers or potential customers, such as: name, address, email address, or phone number. We do not consider Personal Information to include information that has been anonymized so that it does not allow a third party to easily identify a specific individual.
