In addition to the governing law provisions in the Agreement, and because privacy law varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, the Site Provider clarifies governing law with respect to this policy as follows:
Information Collection and Use
Registration and Order Forms
In order to use some of the CampusAuction services, users must register by first completing the New User registration form. This registration form requires users to supply their contact information (i.e. name and address) and financial information (i.e. credit card number). We use this customer contact information to send information to our registered users about the services for which they have subscribed. We use the financial information collected to verify the user’s identity and to bill the user for products and services.
We use Your IP (Internet Protocol) address for the following purposes:
- to help diagnose problems with our server;
- to administer our website;
- to analyze trends and demographics in the aggregate; and
- occasionally for security purposes.
We may use IP addresses to discover and prevent unauthorized use.Â If You believe Your IP address has been blocked through no fault of Your own, please contact Us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When We use IP address information for security, functionality, or other administrative purposes, We keep these uses and the analysis of this information separate from aggregate trend analysis uses, and We take reasonable steps to protect Your information from misuse.
When we collect IP addresses for aggregate trend and demographic information analysis, we do not match the IP addresses to personally identifiable information.
The Site Provider does not give out registered user address or credit card information except where:
- We have your consent;
- We provide such information to trusted businesses or persons for the sole purpose of processing personally identifiable information on Our behalf;
- We have reason to report to a credit reporting agency pursuant to the Agreement;
- We need to deliver a product or service that You have ordered; or
- We are complying with valid legal process.
We do not sell or rent Your personal information to 3rd parties.
We may occasionally share aggregated non-personally identifiable user demographic information, such as anonymous usage data, referring URLs, number of clicks, etc., with Our Corporate Partners and advertisers. Â This information is not linked to any personal information that can identify an individual person.
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. To our knowledge, these companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
Our servers are located in Canada; however the companies whose services We use for shipping, credit card processing, etc., may maintain facilities in Canada, the United States, or other countries. By using CampusAuction, You consent to the transfer of Your personal information among these facilities, including those located outside Your country.

We protect the submission by electronic form of sensitive information (such as credit card numbers) with industry-standard security technology, such as secure socket layer (SSL) encryption.Â The technology used may change without notice as new or improved security measures become available.
The Site Provider also security measures to protect Your information while itâ€™s in our care, including security technology on our servers and appropriate corporate policies regarding employee handling of sensitive information.
