Effective Date of Current Policy: September 27, 2016
Information collected by us will be dealt with in accordance with the provisions of our policy which was in effect at the time of collection.
There are several ways in which we may collect information from you, whether voluntarily or passively.
Voluntarily, we collect the information you provide to use when you sign up for a “I Want What It’s Worth” account and use our Services.
A wide range of additional information which may be requested of you and collected if you apply for a sale of your valuable. This is done in order to tailor the Services to your needs and as may be required by relevant regulations. For example:
In addition to the voluntary information you may provide us with at your discretion, we may also collect additional information from you passively through the use of small text files known as “cookies” that are stored for record-keeping purposes.
“I Want What It’s Worth” may use both ‘session cookies’ (which expire once you close your web browser) and ‘persistent cookies’ (which stay on your computer until you delete them).
In addition to the above, we may provide aggregate statistics about users, sales, traffic patterns, and other information to third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifiable information.
“I Want What It’s Worth” does its utmost to secure your information by putting in place commercially reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure such information. Such measures includes using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology (or comparable technology, including 128-bit encryption) to provide security when transmitting sensitive information via our Site, placing our servers in a secure facility and only allowing access to those of our employees who require such information in order to provide you with the Services.
While no system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by our Site reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. In addition, we recommend that you do your part in protecting yourself from unauthorized access to your account by ensuring no one else uses your computer when you are logged in, by logging off from the site when it is not in use and by keeping your password confidential.

You may modify such preference at any time by changing your account settings, by opting-out of this form of correspondence though the instructions in the applicable e-mail or by requesting this verbally during a promotional phone call.

Choosing to terminate your member status may involve deletion of your information from our live databases, and by doing this you understand that “I Want What It’s Worth” will not be liable for any termination of your member account or related deletion of your information.
