Hilco is committed to protecting your privacy. Please read the privacy statement below. This Privacy Statement applies to data collected by Hilco through its websites.
Under the Data Protection Act (1998), we are legally committed to protecting any and all information that we collect from you. As such we do not disclose individually identifiable information about you to any third party without your express permission, unless we are under legal obligation to do so.
Hilco does not store any unique information about you (such as your name, email address, etc) except when you specifically and knowingly provide such information.
We do however store all browsing information with specific regard to Browser Details and Configuration, IP address, Pages Navigated and Number of Visitors. The collation of this information enables us to enhance our service to our visitors and in no way infringes upon your privacy.
Hilco will not divulge your personally identifiable information (name, email address) with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, or any other third party.
Use of Your Contact Information
Hilco may send certain communications such as letters, event reminders and information on Hilco business transactions and personnel, and/or transaction-related data. Personal information collected on Hilco sites may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Hilco, its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using a Hilco site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. Hilco abides by the safe harbour framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union.
Sharing of Your Contact Information
Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your personal information outside of Hilco and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your consent. Some Hilco services may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company. If you use such services, both Hilco and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the co-branded services. We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
You can stop the delivery of future promotional email from Hilco sites and services by following the specific instructions in any email you receive.
