We do retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce the Medauction User Agreement and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.

No Spam, Spyware, or Spoofing

We and our users do not tolerate spam. Make sure to set your Emailing preferences so we communicate with you as you prefer. You are not licensed to add other Medauction users, even a user who has purchased an item from you, to your mailing list (email or physical mail) without their expressed consent. To report Medauction-related spam or spoof emails to or from Medauction, please user our contact form. You may not use our communication tools to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate our User Agreement. We automatically scan and may manually filter messages to check for spam, viruses, phishing attacks and other malicious activity or illegal or prohibited content, but we do not permanently store messages sent through these tools. If you send an email to an email address that is not registered in our community (via Invite Friends or Colleagues or other tools), we do not permanently store that email or use that email address for any marketing purpose. We do not rent or sell these email addresses.

How We Store and Protect Your Information

We store and process your personal information on our computers in the US. We protect your information using technical and administrative security measures to reduce the risks of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure and alteration. Some of the safeguards we use are firewalls and data encryption, physical access controls to our data centers, and information access authorization controls.

We take steps to ensure that the personal information we collect is accurate and up to date, and we provide you with the opportunity to update your information through your account profile settings. We retain information as long as it is necessary and relevant for our operations. In addition, we may retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with the law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigation, enforce our User Agreement and take other actions permitted by law.

Third Parties

Unless otherwise included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you.
