We collect the following types of information on the Website:
"Personal Information" is information that is used by Mason Auctioneers to identify you individually, such as your name and address and email address.

The actual information we collect from you depends on the services you use on the Website, associated online platform or applications. The following is a more detailed explanation of some of the types and uses of information we collect.
Information Request Forms. The Website, along with our associated online platforms or applications contain various request forms that allow you to request information and services. When we collect such information, we may share it with third parties as is necessary to respond to your request. We do not sell any information to any third parties for their primary use but only as a way to fulfill direct services to you.

Legal Requirements. We may disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law or if we believe that such action is reasonably necessary to: (a) conform with the law, respond to claims or comply with legal process served on the Company, Website, associated online platforms or applications; or (b) protect and defend our rights or property, including the Website and associated online platforms or applications, our employees, guests or the public.

Aggregate Information: Mason Auctioneers collects "Aggregate Information" about you and your use of the Website whenever you visit the Company online.

In addition, when users request pages on the Website, Mason Auctioneers servers automatically log the users IP address. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. The Company may collect, compile, store, publish, promote, report, sell, or otherwise disclose or use any and all Aggregate Information. However, if the Company correlates any Aggregate Information to you, such information will be treated like Personal Information under this Policy.
Cookies. Mason Auctioneers may make use of "cookies" on the Website, associated online platforms or applications. Cookies are small text files that are stored on a user's computer by a web server based on the permissions set in a user's browser software. A cookie itself is not designed or intended to read any information from a user's computer (other than the contents of the cookie); rather, it is an identifier used by the website that originally placed it on your hard drive.
The actual contents of the cookie information can be retrieved by the same server to identify the computer and subsequently to customize, monitor, or regulate the use of a site based on information stored in the cookie and the host server. Therefore, cookies only identify the user's computer to the website, associated online platforms or applications that may correlate other information, including personal information, with the cookie.
Cookies allow the Company to automate access and data entry functions of the Website such as login information, correlate online ordering information for purchases, tailor the Website to your preferences or interests, or customize promotions or marketing. In addition, cookies allow us to track usage of the Website to determine which areas are useful or popular and which are not, thereby enabling us to improve and update the Website effectively.

When we do transmit your data, we use only secure servers using current encryption technology to encode your data safely. We make reasonable efforts to attempt to prevent the unauthorized access of our systems containing personal data.
Breach of Security. In the event of a breach of our information system security that may compromise your personal information, we will promptly notify you of such breach at either the e-mail address or phone and or text number that we have on file for you. We reserve the right to reasonably delay such notification as may reasonably be necessary as part of any internal investigation or law enforcement efforts related to such breach.
