Your privacy is important to us. That is why, as a The Eye Within customer, we are committed to the protection of your privacy. To ensure that you feel confident about providing us with your personal information when communicating with us and using our services, we outline below our practices in relation to the collection and use of personal data.
Information we collect & use
In general, you can visit our website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We track the Internet address of the domains from which people visit us and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but the individual user remains anonymous.
Our primary goal in collecting and storing this information from you is to provide an efficient, relevant and customized experience. This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customize our site to make your experience easier. Importantly, we only collect personal information about you that we consider relevant for achieving this purpose.If you want to bid in our auctions or make an online purchase on our website, we collect some additional information, such as a billing and shipping address, a credit or debit card number and a card expiration date. We protect the security of your credit/debit card information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
We may automatically track certain information about you based upon your behavior on our site. We use this information to do internal research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand and serve our users. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on our site or not), your computer browser information, your IP address, which areas of the site you visit and which features you use.
In order to provide you with timely notice about upcoming auctions and events, new products introduced, The Eye Within may send you email notices based on your expressed interests and bidding history. To help us make these e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open the e-mail or click on a link if your computer supports such capabilities. At any time, you may click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of most emails we send to stop receiving those emails. You may also send an email to email@example.com and request that your email address be removed from our lists. Note that certain email communications from us are required as a condition for using some of our services. As an example,
Tell a Friend
The Eye Within provides users of this site the opportunity to inform others (each, a “recipient”) about a particular product, which will require the sender to provide the recipient’s email address(es). At the sender’s request, The Eye Within will automatically send the recipient email on behalf of the sender a link to The Eye Within’s site containing the information about the sale or lot. The Eye Within will not initiate any further contact with the recipient, beyond the email sent on behalf of the sender, unless the recipient specifically “subscribes” for extra services by filling out a registration form.
If you, as a recipient, do not wish to receive further e-mail from the sender, please reply to the sender requesting they stop sending you the email in the future. The Eye Within does not accept responsibility for any third party’s use (or misuse) of this service.
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
We would like to reiterate that we limit the use of your information to the extent that we reasonably require to deliver our products, services and other opportunities, and to administer our business. The Eye Within does not sell, lease or give your personal information to any other company.
Any personal data you provide to us is securely stored in our internal Information Technology (IT) systems to which only authorized The Eye Within employees are permitted access. This access is provided to employees only on a “need-to-know” basis to the extent necessary to execute their official responsibilities.
All our employees are required to sign a confidentiality agreement in which they agree to treat company & customer data as strictly confidential. The server holding your personal data is protected against both unauthorised physical and electronic access. These measures include an electronic firewall and various other protection measures that involve virus scanning, installation of security patches, vulnerability testing, backup and recovery planning, employee training, security audits and other steps designed to constantly improve the data protection posture.
To protect your privacy and security, we will verify your identity before granting access or making changes to your personally-identifying information. If you have registered your profile on The Eye Within, your The Eye Within ID and password are required in order to access your profile information.
Sharing of Information
We neither rent nor sell your personal information in personally identifiable form to anyone. We share your personal information in personally identifiable form with third parties only as described below:
In certain situations, businesses or third party websites we’re affiliated with may sell items or provide services to you through the Websites (either alone or jointly with us).

User Profiles and Content:
Certain user profile information, including without limitation a user’s username and the image content that such user has uploaded to the website may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within the Websites or address your request for our services.
