USE OF YOUR DATA
We use the information which you provide to us to enable us to monitor bids and individual bidders during our online auction sales, to notify you when you have been outbid or have been successful in an auction and to be able to invoice you if you are a successful purchaser and make necessary arrangements for appointments to collect or view items.
