AutomatedSearches.com is owned and operated by Integrinet Inc. (collectively, “Integrinet,” “we,” or “us”). This Privacy Policy applies to activities by Integrinet Inc. and its subsidiaries.

The Information We Collect

We collect information directly from individuals, from third parties, and automatically through the AutomatedSearches.com Platform.

Account and Profile Information: When you create an account on AutomatedSearches.com, we collect your email address and the password you create. Password data is encoded and will only be know by you.

Your Saved Content: We collect and store the information and content that you submit to AutomatedSearches.com, which includes your Saved eBay Searches data and Automated Seller Questions.

Integrated Service Providers. eBay: If you elect to connect your eBay Watch Lists to AutomatedSearches.com to receive alerts, we will receive a Unique Connection Token from eBay that allows us access to certain data from that eBay account such as eBay name and eBay Watch List data. We store this information to allow us to provide eBay Watch List Alerts. If you remove the Watch List from our service by using the links provided on the Watch List page or revoke access via a setting in your eBay account, we will no longer have access to this Watch List data. Because the nature of our service is to send customers to eBay to make purchases via our affiliate links in emails, text messages or on AutomatedSearches.com, on a regular basis, eBay sends us statistical data on purchases made from these interactions. Other service providers: Our Email & SMS delivery providers send us data about delivery and non-delivery of email and SMS messages. Paypal: If you use Paypal for account upgrades, Paypal securely sends us the Paypal transaction data.
