Sharing of Personal Data

Salcedo Auctions may disclose your Personal Data with other parties for the purposes referred to in this Privacy Policy and relying on the legal grounds for processing described above, including:

  • any member of the Salcedo Auctions staff for purposes including notifying you of sales, exhibitions, and special events which may be of interest to you
  • persons acting on your behalf
  • financial institutions, credit reference agencies, fraud prevention agencies and internal and external auditors, professional advisors
  • law enforcement and judicial, administrative, and regulatory bodies;
  • third parties: we use to provide services to you (including shipping agents and brokers, warehouse providers, data hosting providers, call center operations, e-mail management services, data analytics providers, and other providers of services required for the operation of our website, mobile applications, and online bidding services);
  • for marketing purposes where you have consented to marketing.

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies with respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers. In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located. As an example, if you are located in the Philippines and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act. Once you leave our website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Use.
