ACQUIREO, and its parent company, Listopica, Inc., respects your right to personal privacy, and we are committed to protecting that right. Therefore, we provide this Privacy Policy notice to explain our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

Because of our commitment to privacy and our understanding of the necessity for confidentiality in buying and selling businesses, we strive to collect as little personally identifiable information as possible. However, for some of our services, we may need to collect some personally identifiable information from you in order to deliver these services. The types of personal information collected at these pages are described in the sections below.

Information is gathered from members and guests who apply for the various services our site offers. This information includes, but is not limited to: email address, first name, last name, credit card number for payment, a user-specified password, mailing address, zip code and telephone number.

While we attempt to keep your personal information confidential, it is necessary to disclose this information to the public in some circumstances. For example, a primary purpose of ACQUIREO is to provide publicly searchable databases of classified ads and other postings. Therefore, much of the business information submitted by users is done so with the intent that we make the information public knowledge. However, unless otherwise indicated by the nature of the business being conducted on our site, we will note disclose your personal information; and in no event will we disclose information, such as your credit card number or SSN/EIN number.

Furthermore, we will not share your e-mail address with third parties, unless you elect to have this information shared as part of transacting business on our site. We may use your e-mail address to send you an e-mail announcement from time to time regarding some change to our services. Yet, these instances will be rare in number.

Cookies are small text files that a website can place on a user's computer hard drive to be a unique identifier for that user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. However, our site does contain links to third-party websites, which may employ cookies. Please refer to the third party's privacy policy for details on their use of cookies.

ACQUIREO automatically collects IP addresses and traffic information from visitors to our site. This information is aggregated into statistics to help us evaluate how visitors prefer to use and navigate our website, and to help us improve your experience on ACQUIREO. We may share this aggregate traffic information with our partners or advertisers, but in no event, will we disclose any information that will identify you personally. Likewise, we may share aggregate sales information with third parties, but such information will not identify individual customers.

In some cases, we may use third party vendors to process your transactions on ACQUIERO. For example, credit card transactions are handled by a third-party financial institution, which receives the credit card number and other personally identifying information in order to validate the purchase.

Finally, we may disclose and use personally identifiable information in special circumstances when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with law or court order, (ii) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements, or (iii) protect the rights, property, or safety of ACQUIERO, our users, or others.

To protect your personal information and prevent unauthorized access or data inaccuracies, we employ appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguards to secure the information we collect online. Any sensitive information you enter (such as a credit card number) is encrypted and is protected with state-of-the-art encryption technology.

We also do everything in our power to protect your information from being disclosed to third parties in violation of our privacy policy. For one, your information is only accessible by those employees who have a need to know the information to perform a specific task. Second, all employees are trained to honor our security and privacy practices.

To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps through means such as passwords to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections. You can access any information in your posting by going to the area of the site where you submitted the information, and follow the instructions to view, change or delete the information. Nevertheless, please note that deleted or modified information may continue to be stored by ACQUIERO for archival record-keeping purposes only.

By using our website, you consent to the collection and use of this information by ACQUIERO. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post the new Privacy Policy on this page so that our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. You will have a choice as to whether we use your information in this different manner.
