Information We Collect
Bargainwizz.com may request or collect personal information from online users in a variety of ways depending on what form you fill out. Our online forms collect your name, email address, address, telephone number, and information about your collecting and selling habits and interests. Our free email notices require an email address where first and last name are optional. Our registration for participating in online auctions and Buy-it-Now services, collects your name, email address, address, telephone number, and a valid credit card. We may also obtain information about you in person, or through mail, email, text, social media or other sources.
We automatically record your IP address, session duration, transaction data, the order and addresses of the pages you visit, and in most cases the data that you enter on those pages. We use all of this information to improve the navigation, functionality, and general service that our website provides.
