Personal Information We May Collect
Personal Information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home, business, or other physical address, a phone number, and an email address. We collect Personal Information from our Site users and customers only when such information is voluntarily provided to us, including, without limitation, in connection with inquiries about our services through the “Contact” page, applying for employment with us, or in the process of your business transactions with us. To respond to an inquiry from you, we may also ask for information about your present place of employment, including but not limited to company name, size, industry sector and number of employees.
How We May Use Your Information
If you provide us with Personal Information, we may retain and use that information for several purposes, including facilitating and otherwise addressing your inquiry, request, subscriptions, or business transactions and relationship with OBID. For example, we may use your Personal Information in order to respond to your questions or requests for information about OBID. We may also send online marketing materials to you. You can unsubscribe from these emails by using the link provided in those emails. If you become a customer of OBID, we will always retain the right to email you regarding the Site or services that we’re providing to you.

We utilize other third party vendors and platforms in the regular course of business such as Basecamp, Mailchimp, JazzHR, LinkedIn, Paypal and various social media (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). You can view their privacy policies here:
We may provide Personal Information to these businesses when that information is necessary for them to complete a requested transaction or otherwise perform their duties. OBID will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third-party service providers are obligated to protect Personal Information on OBID’s behalf.

In the event that OBID or all of its assets are acquired, all of the data collected by OBID through the Site and through other means and services provided by OBID would be among the transferred assets. We reserve the right to disclose such information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other visitors, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities.

From time to time, we may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Site, such as what sites visitors are coming from when they visit our Site, when they first visited our Site, their IP address, how many visitors visit a specific page on the Site, how long they stay on that page and which hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. We may use the IP address to infer information about such visitor, including its company, city and state. We collect this information through the use of “cookies” and other tracking technologies, which are discussed in greater detail below. We collect this information in order to determine which areas of the Site are most popular and to enhance the Site for visitors. We may group this information into aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the Site to our existing or potential business partners, sponsors, advertisers, or other third parties, or in response to a government request.
