Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

Terms of Service

Your access to and/or use of this site, VirtualSalesBot.com, and its associated services implies your consent to these Terms of Service. This also includes the off-site services provided by VirtualSalesBot.com, such as the VirtualSalesBot.com Widget. Collectively these will be referred to as our "Services" below. "You" refers to you as a website visitor, client, or other user of our Services, as well as any 3rd party you authorize, such as your agents.

These Services are provided on an "as-is" basis without any guarantee to their functionality, effectiveness, accuracy, or continued existence, and with no warranty granted or liability assumed by the owners of this site. The Services we provide are dependent on some factors outside of our control, so as a result we cannot guarantee 100% uptime or complete access to these Services. We, VirtualSalesBot.com, expressly disclaim all liability, whether direct or indirect, consequential or incidental, obvious or implied, for any damages should our Services fail or otherwise not perform as expected, or for any other reason. You hereby acknowledge that any reliance upon any of the Services we provide is wholly and solely at your own risk. We reserve the right to change our Terms of Service (ToS) at any time; your continued use of our Services constitutes your acceptance of our ToS. The current version of our ToS will always be posted on this page.

You agree that you will not scrape, hack, or abuse our website(s), our server(s), or the Services we provide. You may not place any of our web pages in a browser frame or iframe without our prior permission. You will not hotlink to images on our sites, except in explicitly permitted circumstances (for example: HTML code snippets and server-provided image hot linking provided for your use. You will not conduct Denial of Service or other malicious attacks onto our sites or servers, nor attempt to disrupt our Services in any way. You will not attempt to obtain, reverse engineer, decompile, create derivative works from, or otherwise attempt to derive source code from the VirtualSalesBot.com websites, software, content, or servers. We maintain the final decision as to what constitutes abuse, hacking, scraping, DoS attacks, and other destructive or malevolent activity.

We can't guarantee that the services will increase bidding activity or interest in your website item/listing.

While we've attempted to offer our Services so that they don't violate, or cause you to violate, any website policies, we can't guarantee that will always be the case for each of our clients, at all times. If website cancels any of your listings, terminates your membership in the website Partner Network, or otherwise takes punitive action against you because of a Service we provide, we disclaim responsibility for any damages that result, as described in greater detail in the paragraph up above.

Understand that some of our Services have inherent delays built-in and are accurate but may be subject to a 2-5 minute delay.

We, or our web hosting companies, may temporarily disable some or all of our Services if it's found that our servers or network infrastructure are being placed under excessive strain, whether such strain is the result of increased but acceptable use of our Services, or a result of malicious abuse.

We periodically make changes and improvements to several of our Services. We may implement these changes at any time, with or without public or private notice. If such changes, improvements, or enhancements are substantial enough, or if we feel they'll affect a large portion of our users, we'll endeavor to announce them on our website comfortably in advance of the actual changes. Sometimes, however, we may instead opt to make such announcements afterwards, or not at all, depending on the nature and scope of the service changes.

Some of our links will take you to external sites. Such sites are not within our control, and we are not responsible for their content, behavior, existence or functionality.

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. (Typically we will only do this if we strongly suspect you are violating our Terms of Service.)

In the event of temporary or permanent failure of any our services, we have instituted best-effort practices to minimize the effects on our visitors and we will attempt to post notice in a prominent location on VirtualSalesBot.com within a reasonable amount of time.

Privacy Policy

For each visitor to our web site/pages, our web server automatically recognizes and collects the visitor's IP address. Information about searches performed on this site and public browser data ("referrers", "user agents", etc.) are also collected. This information we collect is used to track hits to our website, as part of security measures, and to assess a general understanding of how our visitors are using our site. We don't share this collected information with any 3rd party. Should you have arrived here by way of a VirtualSalesBot.com Affiliate/Partner, said information may be provided to that Affiliate/Partner as part of site usage and traffic reports.

With respect to ad servers: To try and bring you offers that are related to the theme of our site, we have relationships with other companies (namely, Google) that we allow to place ads on our web pages. As a result of your visit to our site, said ad server companies may collect general, non-personally-identifiable information such as your domain type, your IP address and clickstream information. For further information, please consult Google's Privacy Center. You can see Google's list of approved third-party advertising companies (and links to their sites and policies).

With respect to cookies that are issued to, or subsequently retrieved from, our visitors' browsers: We use cookies to record session information ("temporary/transient/session cookies") so that our services operate properly for each visitor. We, or our Affiliates/Partners, also may receive anonymous referral/sales commissions from website if visitors make purchases on website after clicking through to website while using our site (such cookies are issued by website.com itself). We may also receive payments/commissions from advertisers (or their agents) and promotions you see on our site; as is standard practice to enable commerce on the web, cookies may be issued in connection with such ads. Moreover, we use some non-session cookies to track repeated hits to our site and to enhance our services (for example: to remember minor preferences from your last visit, such as which website country-site you prefer searching). These cookies are issued by Google Analytics, as well as VirtualSalesBot.com.
Cookies and web beacons issued/provided by StatCounter.com, Google Analytics, VirtualSalesBot.com, and website do not track personally identifiable information, nor do they track activities beyond the sites mentioned.

Google may collect personally identifiable information and/or login credentials if you use GFC on our site. We, VirtualSalesBot.com, do not have access to such information; Google may collect it but doesn't provide it or make it avaialable to us. Since GFC is a social, portable service offered by Google, their cookies and/or web beacons may track your activities beyond this site. To avoid this, simply avoid logging in to GFC, or disable Javascript. To learn more about Google's privacy policies surrounding GFC, please see this page.

If you click through, or view, one of Google's, or their partners', ads, it's possible that Google may track your activities beyond this site. Google ads may incorporate a component known as "interest-based advertising" to display ads on our site that reflect the interests of our visitors based on their individual visits to websites around the internet. Google does this via a, Google/DoubleClick DART cookie . What this means is that, even though Google won't identify you personally as an ad viewer, it may know that you visited other websites within certain topics, and subsequently displays appropriate ads on our site that are anonymously tailored to your previous web surfing habits. Google does not allow us to opt-out of this behavior, and all websites that display Google ads are subject to interest-based advertising. As an ad viewer you can individually adjust your involvement in this advertising feature by making changes in Google's Ads Preferences Manager which is also accessible by clicking on most Google ads themselves. A visitor and ad viewer may also opt-out of this behavior at the Google Advertising and Privacy page.

You can easily remove or block persistent (non-transient) cookies from your browser by using functions/settings within your browser, possibly through cookie-disabling or Javascript-disabling functions. If you do so, you are still more than welcome to continue using our site, although temporary/session cookies are still required for most of the services on our site to function correctly. Session cookies are easily removed by closing all of your browser windows or shutting down your computer. Your public, non-personally-identifiable information that is seen by web beacons can be shielded by said web beacons simply by disabling image downloads in your browser (simply closing your eyes won't help).

(Side note: Generally speaking, you can actually surf the web in a near-invisible manner by disabling most functions in your browser, like: images, JavaScript, and cookies - however most sites won't work properly for you without them.)

If you use our VirtualSalesBot.com, we may collect the IP addresses of visitors to those pages (or maybe just if/when they click through). This information is used to help us monitor the performance of our services, mitigate abuse, and provide a basis for analysis of aggregate data. Such information won't be released to any 3rd party (exception: website, as mentioned up above).

With respect to website security: Since we don't collect any sensitive information from our site visitors, we do not use encryption or high-security protocols.

From time to time, we may use collected non-personally-identifiable customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in this privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our web site on this web page to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our web site periodically.

Cookies, web beacons, IP addresses, ad servers are almost always used in benign ways, such as helping the website function properly and cleanly for its visitors.
