Each User is expressly prohibited from using another User's ID without such person's authorization. Failure to comply with the foregoing shall constitute a breach of this Agreement, which may result in immediate termination of that User's authorization. Each User shall be solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their password.
Each User shall notify Bidcom of any known or suspected unauthorized use(s) of his/her account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of his/her confidential information.

The Information We Collect
The type of personally identifiable information that Bidcom collects includes: name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information, and may also include information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services.
The Web Site also allows you to submit information about other people. For example, you might submit a person's mailing and e-mail address to enroll them in an Bidcom seminar, or if you order publications online and want them sent directly to the recipient, you might submit the recipient's name and address. In addition, when Bidcom members forward Bidcom seminar invitations to third parties, we may collect certain personally identifiable information from those third parties, such as their email address.
We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit the Web Site, such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.
How We Use the Information
We may use the information you provide about yourself to fulfill your requests for our products, programs, and services, to respond to your inquiries about our offerings, and to offer you other products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
We sometimes use this information to communicate with you, such as to notify you when we make changes to our subscriber agreements, to fulfill an online order for Bidcom products, or to contact you about issues regarding your membership.
We use the information that you provide about others to enable us to send them the relevant information which you have requested for them. From time to time, we also may use this information to offer our products, programs, or services to them.
The information we collect in connection with our online discussion forums is used to facilitate participation in the forums and, from time to time, to offer you products, programs, or services.
If you choose to submit User Content for publication, we may publish your name and other information you have provided to us.
We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our products, programs and services and to enable us to provide a more tailored interface for individual Users.
We may disclose any User's personally identifiable information in response to a law enforcement agency's request or legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena.
Agents and contractors of Bidcom who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for Bidcom. Bidcom members and non-members who have access to personally identifiable information of members and other individuals through the use of the Bidcom website are also required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice, and are required to use such information strictly for business related purposes.
Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Notice or as otherwise permitted by law. Please see section 5 of the Terms & Conditions.
On occasion, Bidcom may disclose personally identifiable information to companies whose practices are not covered by this privacy notice (e.g., marketers, magazine publishers, retailers, participatory databases, and non-profit organizations) that want to market products or services to you.
We may, on occasion, combine information we receive online with outside records to enhance our ability to market to you those products or services that may be of interest to you.
Finally, Bidcom will not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us in ways unrelated to the ones described above. Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites and Sponsors
The Web Site may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different from ours. Users should consult the other sites' privacy notices as Bidcom has no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
The Bidcom sites covered by this Privacy Notice sometimes may offer content which is co-branded with third parties (the "Co-Branded Content"). By virtue of these relationships, the third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to use the Co-Branded Content. Bidcom has no control over third party use of this information.
To enhance your experience with our site, many of our web pages use "cookies." Cookies are text files we place in your computer's browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering at one of our sites. However, once you choose to furnish the site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.
Our Commitment to Security
We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.
Effective Date and Amendments
Billing and Payments
Bidcomhomes.com bills you through an online account (your "Billing Account") for use of the Service. You agree to pay Bidcomhomes.com all charges at the prices you agreed to for any use of the Service by you or other persons (including your agents) using your Billing Account, and you authorize Bidcomhomes.com to charge your chosen payment provider (your "Payment Method") for the Service. You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. Bidcomhomes.com may correct any billing errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method.
Unless otherwise explicitly stated in its policies or terms, Bidcomhomes is not responsible for refunds, returns, exchanges or credits of any kind. Refunds will not be provided to a paid User who purchases a "Bid Bundle" in error.
We are only responsible for refunds through the Site in the case of a transactional error, website malfunction or incorrect charges. Because transactional information is available via email to the paid User, failed delivery of Bidcomhomes emails to its Users does not constitute grounds for a refund. Refunds will not exceed the purchase price of the chosen "Bid Bundle" purchase.
If for any reason, the price billed is grossly understated or overstated, regardless of the price indicated or posted on this Site, Bidcomhomes reserves the right to cancel the listing and refund the amount paid.
All amendments or cancellations are subject to our examination. We will process your refund request as soon as possible.
Refund requests from paid Users should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and will be handled on an individual basis.
