Privacy Policy

Our Philosophy

At SnipeSwipe, we take your privacy and security very seriously. Our primary goal in collecting your personal information is to provide you with the best possible experience when using our service.

Our policy is to be as unobtrusive as possible to our users. As such, we only collect personal information as needed to operate features of our website. For example, we do not require personal information, such as your email address or phone number to place your snipe.

Anti-Spam Policy

SnipeSwipe follows a strict anti-spam policy. We have no intention of ever spamming our users, or enabling any other third party to spam our users.

What information do we collect?

  1. Information You Supply To Us

    We receive information that you supply to us though our website or any other way. You many choose to not provide us with any information, but that may mean you will not be able to take advantage of a feature our site offers.

  2. Automatic Information

    We collect automatic information such as IP addresses. This information may be used in compliance with our privacy and security policies.

Why do you need my eBay password?

Using your eBay username and password is the only possible way that our servers can place a snipe on your behalf. We supply you with a 128-bit encrypted SSL socket layer to transmit your ebay password to our servers securely. When placing your bid, we use ebay's SSL socket layer to transmit your bid information to eBay's servers.

You don't need to ever email us your password or transmit it to our servers in an insecure manner. SnipeSwipe will never contact you with an unsolicited request for your password.

What about cookies and javascript?

Our service uses cookies and javascript to enhance features for our users. At any time, you may choose to disable cookies or javascript in your web browser settings.

What do you do with this information?

SnipeSwipe never supplies your personal information to any third party without your prior consent except in the limited circumstances described in this policy. Your information is necessary to operate features of our website. For example, your username and password are transmitted to eBay when SnipeSwipe places a bid on your behalf. We do not provide your bid history information to any third party without your consent. Your eBay username and password are stored in our database, and can only be changed by you once you have logged into the system.

The information we store about your bids is only available to SnipeSwipe administrators and you upon login.

Is my information secure?

We provide a secure socket layer (SSL) server with 128bit encryption. Your personal information is protected by your password. Never share this password with anyone. We have taken steps to ensure our databases are secure, and we are confident in our ability to keep your information safe. All employees are kept up to date with regards to our security and privacy policies.
