How we protect your data

We store your online bidder information securely on our online auction platform. We use a third party e-mail service provider to securely store and send bid notification emails to registered bidders. Bidders must have expressly opted in to receive email marketing communications from Fields Auctions.

Your personal data collected through the website and online auction platform will only ever be used if there is a legitimate interest to do so (i.e. invoicing, billing and payments). Your data may be accessed by our related entities for online auction support reasons only.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In the unlikely event of a potential, data breach, our software developers will be notified immediately, and will do their best to identify and treat the problem with minimal disruption to your services. If your personal data has been compromised, you will be notified immediately.

What third parties we receive data from

Our website uses Google Analytics in order to inform us about the types of people visiting our website. Data collected includes, but may not be limited to user demographics, gender, time of visit, pages visited, time spent on website, IP address and device and web browser used to access the website.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We may access the quantitative data in Google Analytics to inform our decisions on any changes we might want to make to the website. We may also use it to inform our marketing decisions. Generally, we do not have access to any other identifiable characteristics in Google Analytics (for example, your name and contact information will remain anonymous).
