LiveAuctioneers Cookie Policy

Effective as of May 25, 2018

This Cookie Policy explains how Live Auctioneers LLC and its affiliates, (collectively “LiveAuctioneers”, “we”, “us”, and “ours”) use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you use the LiveAuctioneers Online Platform, accessed via any LiveAuctioneers website, application, service, or tool. It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

In some cases, we may use cookies to collect personal information, or that becomes personal information if we combine it with other information. In such cases, our Privacy Policy will apply in addition to this Cookie Policy.

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, LiveAuctioneers) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (such as advertising, interactive content, and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Why do we use cookies and other tracking technologies?

We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Online Platform to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. For example, we use cookies to tailor content and information that we may send or display to you and otherwise personalize your experience while interacting with our Online Platform and to otherwise improve the functionality of the Services we provide. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Online Platform. Third parties serve cookies through our Online Platform for advertising, analytics, and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.

The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Online Platform and the purposes they perform are described in further detail below:

Essential Website Cookies

These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our websites and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas. Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver the websites, you cannot refuse them without impacting how our websites function. You can block or delete them by changing your browser settings, as described under the heading "How can I control cookies?" in the Cookie Statement.

Performance and Functionality Cookies

These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of our websites but are non-essential to their use. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable.

Analytics and Customization Cookies

These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our websites are being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize our websites and application for you in order to enhance your experience.

Advertising (Targeting) Cookies

These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you and your interests. They also perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests. For further information, see the section of the Cookie Statement entitled "Targeted online advertising".

Social Networking Cookies

These cookies are used to enable you to share pages and content that you find interesting on our Online Platform through third party social networking and other websites. These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes, too.

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies like web beacons (also called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Online Platform or opened an email that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Online Platform to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Online Platform from an online advertisement displayed on a third party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Do you serve targeted advertising?

Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Online Platform. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details, or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.

How can I control cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. You can exercise your cookie preferences by clicking on the appropriate opt-out links provided in the cookie table above.

Browser Controls?

You can set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our Online Platform, though your access to some functionality and areas of our Online Platform may be restricted. As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser’s help menu for more information.

Disabling Most Interest-Based Advertising

Most advertising networks offer a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find our more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com

Mobile Advertising

You can opt out of having your mobile advertising identifiers used for certain types of Interest Based Advertising, including those performed by us, by accessing the settings in your Apple or Android mobile device and following the most recent published instructions. If you opt out, we will remove all data about you and no further data collection or tracking will occur. The random ID we (or our third party partners) had previously assigned to you will also be removed. This means that if at a later stage, you decide to opt-in, we will not be able to continue and track you using the same ID as before, and you will for all practical purposes be a new user to our system.

How often will you update this Cookie Policy?

We may update this Cookie Policy from time-to-time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal, or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.

The date at the top of this Cookie Policy indicates when it was last updated.
