ELEVATE Customer Service
ELEVATE Third Party Relationships
We have established relationships with third parties in order to facilitate online fundraising transactions. In order to fulfill our agreement, Elevate Auctions provides the personal information of the winning bidder, and the second-highest bidder (in case the high bidder is ineligible) to the organization hosting the online auction in order to complete the transaction fulfillment. These parties have agreed to not use any personally identifiable information of customers for any other purpose.
Credit Card Processing
We use BeanStream / TD Canada Trust Payment Gateway to process credit card orders. We supply them with data for credit card
authorization and fraud detection only and they are restricted from using the data for any other purposes.
We use 256-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to protect your personal information. The only time you are required to log into our site is when you are making a purchase. To purchase our products online, you will be asked to access your existing account or create a new one. Existing account holders are prompted for their ID (your email address) and password. This password is for your protection. If you don’t have your password, there is a link that reads “Forgotten your password?” Click on this for instructions on how to get your password.
If we are going to use your personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify you via email. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our website notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post the notice we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
