TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT:
Public Information – You may visit the Site anonymously. During your visit, we may collect information that is not personally identifiable such as your IP address, site usage and purchase behavior, browser type, browser activity, and browser settings.
Private Information – We may collect information about you to provide you with the services that you request. The information we collect may include but is not limited to name, email address, mailing address, phone number and banking/credit card information.

You do need to provide personal information, however, to sell, bid on or purchase items, and to participate in any user forums or other interactive portions of the Site that may be available.
Sample Instances of Collection of Information
In certain circumstances your registration information may be verified through so-called “credit header” information. You may be required to answer a multiple-choice questionnaire compiled from information managed by consumer and business information sources. These questions can include elements from your financial history. This is done as an identity verification and fraud prevention measure. This verification service is provided by a third party, and we do not collect or store any personal information from this process. All we receive is an indication of how many questions you answered successfully.
We collect certain information submitted during transactions on the Site based on your activities, including bidding, buying and selling, and other information you provide in connection with buying or selling an item (collectively, “Site Activity Information”).We may also collect certain personal information that you provide through message board discussions, chats, correspondence or dispute resolution.
Registration Information, Site Activity Information and other personal information that you provide may be used in the following ways:
Emails from our Site may contain web beacons or “clear .gifs.” These are small graphic images that can be used for recording when an email has been opened in order to track the performance of email marketing campaigns. We and our third party service providers currently log responses from web beacons, but this information is not stored or linked to your personal information in our systems.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you disable cookies off, some features will be disabled.
If you utilize any of the location-based services in our mobile applications, such as the functionality that allows you to search for a participating Federal Firearms License (“FFL”) holder in your area, we and our third-party service providers may collect, use, and share location data, including the real-time geographic location of your device. We use such information to provide and improve location-based products and services. You may opt-out from further allowing us to have access to your location data by adjusting the permissions in your mobile device.
To protect Personal Information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with applicable federal and state laws. These measures may include device safeguards and secured files and buildings as well as oversight of our third party service providers to ensure information remains confidential and secure. While we follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us (both during and once we receive it), no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
