GavelTown Privacy Policy

Effective January 1, 2023

This Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") sets out how GavelTown and its affiliates (collectively "GavelTown") use and protect any information that you provide GavelTown when you use the GavelTown website (the "Website" or the " GavelTown Website").

By visiting the GavelTown Website you are consenting to the practices and procedures described in this Privacy Policy and in GavelTown 's Terms of Use, into which this Privacy Policy is incorporated.

Policy Changes

You should review this Privacy Policy periodically as we may modify it from time to time as our Website evolves, and such changes will be effective upon our posting them to the Website. Your continued use of the GavelTown Website after we have changed the Privacy Policy signifies your acceptance of the revised terms. Under certain circumstances (e.g., with respect to material changes to this Privacy Policy), we may also elect to notify you through additional means, such as posting a notice on the front page of the Website or sending you an e-mail.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

When you visit the GavelTown Website, our web servers may recognize and collect certain information about your visits to the Website, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) Address. Our servers may also collect clickstream data, which includes a trail of electronic information left at each website and web page you visit, such as the referring page that linked you to us (e.g., another website or a search engine), the pages you visit on this Website, the website you visit after this Website, other information about the type of web browser, computer, platform, related software and settings you are using, any search terms you have entered on this Website or a referral site, and other web usage activity and data logged by our web servers. We may use this information to learn about and determine how much time visitors spend on each page of the GavelTown Website, how visitors navigate throughout the Website and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors.

We may use cookies on the Website, which are small pieces of data stored by your web browser that contain data regarding your settings and preferences, or other data about your visits to the Website. We use this information for various purposes, including, for example, to recognize you and your computer when you return to the GavelTown Website, to provide you with access to account information you may have entered on the GavelTown Website, to compile statistics about traffic to the GavelTown Website, and for other purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy. You can refuse cookies any time by turning them off in your web browser. However, if you turn off cookies, certain features and functions of the Website may not be available to you.

We also may use web beacons and other similar tracking technologies (such as "clear GIFs" and "pixel tags") in the Website and/or in our communications with you to enable us to know whether you have visited a web page or received a message.

Any or all of the above-described activities with respect to non-personally identifiable information may be performed on our behalf by our Representatives (defined below). We may match non-personally identifiable information collected in the manner described above with other information we may have from or about you, including your personally identifiable information.

Personally Identifiable Information

When using the GavelTown Website, you may be asked to provide, or you may otherwise choose to provide, certain "personally identifiable information," such as your name, physical address, e-mail address, and a telephone number. Such information will be used by us in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We collect such personally identifiable information in various circumstances, including, for example, for processing and evaluating your registration, processing your sign-in, and for contacting you with regard to your registration, transactions and other activities or accounts on our Website.

The above are only examples of the types of personally identifiable information we may collect and the circumstances during which we may collect that information. The exact types of personally identifiable information collected from you may vary depending on the transactions you conduct on the Website and the various activities in which you participate (including, for example and without limitation, demographic information or other information that would permit someone to contact you online or offline).

Use of Information

GavelTown uses the information it collects from you (including your personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information) primarily to understand your needs, provide you with better services, and deliver the specific service, content or information you may request from time to time. For example, we may use your information to communicate back to you, to update you on services and content to personalize your experience on the GavelTown Website, to perform statistical analyses, to contact you for market research, and/or to provide you with marketing information, newsletters, or other information we think would be of particular interest to you.

We may also use the information we collect to send you occasional promotional messages about GavelTown news and other promotional announcements. We may also send various account notifications or messages regarding changes to the GavelTown Website and other issues relating to your account or profile. If you do not want to receive any future promotional e-mails from us, please notify us by following the procedures contained in our promotional e-mails. Please understand that if you opt out of receiving promotional correspondence from us, we may still contact you in connection with your relationship, activities, transactions and communications with us.

Information obtained through the GavelTown Website may be combined and used in conjunction with information we may obtain through other sources (other than the GavelTown Website), including both offline and online sources.

Other than as described in this Privacy Policy, we do not provide your information to third parties.

Our Representatives

GavelTown will not share your personal identifiable information with GavelTown's affiliates, technical consultants, service providers, third party auditors, and/or other third parties (collectively, our "Representatives"). Such Representatives include, for example, Website or database hosting companies, address list hosting companies, e-mail service providers, analytics companies, distribution companies, fulfillment companies, payment processing companies and other similar vendors and services providers.

Legally-Required Disclosures

We reserve the right to access and disclose your information as may be required by courts or administrative agencies, and to the extent required to permit us to investigate suspected fraud, harassment, or other violations of any law, rule, or regulation, the rules or policies of the GavelTown Website, or the rights of third parties, or to investigate any suspected conduct which GavelTown deems improper.

Business Transfer

In the event that we, or a substantial portion of our assets, are acquired by one or more third parties as a result of or in connection with an acquisition, merger, sale, reorganization, consolidation or liquidation, user information (including personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable) may be one of the transferred assets.

Aggregate Statistics

We may disclose to third parties non-personally identifiable information of our users for any reason, including as a measure of interest in, and use of, our Website, and we may do so in the form of aggregate data, such as overall patterns or demographic reports, that does not describe or identify any individual user.


The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We employ Secure Socket Layer (SSL) lines and technology for the communication of certain information. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet we cannot guarantee that communications between you and any GavelTown Website, or information stored on any GavelTown Website or our servers, will be free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers. Your use of the Website demonstrates your assumption of this risk.

If you notice any inaccuracies in your personally identifiable information maintained by us, please contact us immediately. In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your personally identifiable information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail.

Links to Other Websites

The GavelTown Website may contain links (including in-line links), banners, or advertisements to websites and services owned and operated by third parties. When you click on such links, banners, or advertisements, the privacy policies of the websites to which you are linked will govern the use of your information collected on such sites. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by GavelTown online via the GavelTown Website. We encourage our users to read the privacy statements of each and every website or online service visited after leaving or navigating from the GavelTown Website through such a link, banner or advertisement, in order to learn how such third parties may treat your information.
