Second Bind collects certain information from and about its users in three ways: directly from the user, from our web server logs, and with cookies. When you sign up for a service, Second Bind will obtain your consent to collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information. This will be done by you committing to the terms and conditions of the service in our consignment form.
User-Supplied Information: When you sign up for a service (such as consigning a book), we may ask you for your name, e-mail address, and some other personal information. Our policy is to only collect enough information to provide good service; thus your phone number is optional, but if we have it we may call to tell you there are funds waiting for you to pick up if your email address is not receiving our automatic notification, for example:
Server Log Information: When you visit an internet web site, you disclose certain information about yourself, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, the time of your visit, and the referring location (e.g., the site or page that offered a link to a Second Bind web page). Second Bind like many other sites, records this basic information about visits to its site for statistical purposes.
The privacy and protection of your personal information is extremely important to Second Bind. Second Bind will never sell your personal information, such as your email address or phone number, to a third party. Any user statistics that may be provided to prospective partners regarding your Second Bind usage are provided in the aggregate only and do not include any personally identifiable information about any individual user. Your access to some services and content may be password protected. We recommend that you do not disclose your username or password to anyone. In addition, if applicable, you should remember to sign out of your Second Bind account or service at the end of each session. You may also wish to close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library, computer lab, or internet cafe.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, despite our efforts to protect your personal information, Second Bind cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or to or from our online products or services. You transmit all such information at your own risk. However, once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Except as described below, Second Bind will not willfully disclose any individually identifiable information about its users to any third party without first receiving that user’s permission. Second Bind may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it (such as under a court order) or to protect the rights or property of Second Bind When you are at the www.secondbind.com site and are asked for personal information, you share that information with Second Bind alone, unless the service is offered in conjunction with another party. Second Bind has no control over and accepts no liability for the practices of these independent parties, though every reasonable effort will be made to ensure the integrity of any such third parties.
If you post your personal information on the Second Bind web site, we may send you a confirmation e-mail confirming your new account and/or service. The message will be sent to the address that you supplied us and will describe ways for you to change or delete the account information provided. Remember to keep the confirmation email as it will also contain information that will help you in case you run into problems accessing our services. Your personal information will be updated in a timely manner upon being advised by you of any necessary changes thereto.
