GoAntiques Privacy Policy

GoAntiques.com is owned and operated by GoAntiques LLC. ("GoAntiques," "we," "us" or "our(s) "). We are committed to protecting your privacy. We have prepared this Privacy Policy to describe to you our practices regarding the Personal Information (as defined below) we collect from users ("User(s)," "you," "your(s)") of the GoAntiques website, mobile application(s) and other related services (each individually or together, the "Site").

By using our Site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and all other GoAntiques policies governing the use of the Site and you expressly consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. By using the Site you represent that you have read and understand this Privacy Policy and other GoAntiques policies and agree to be bound by the terms therein.

Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meanings given in our Terms of Use.

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, "Personal Information" is any personally identifiable information about an individual person such as a person's name, physical address, email address and telephone number, and may include financial and other information provided by an individual who accesses our Site and/or uses our services.


Though you may access and use portions of our Site without providing any Personal Information, in order to take advantage of the full capabilities of the Site and to obtain access to, and use of, many of the features of our Site, you must provide certain Personal Information. For example, in order to register for a membership account through the Site (each a "Membership Account"), to sell items on the Site and to request information about products and services offered on our Site you must provide certain Personal Information.

Personal Information Provided Voluntarily by the User. When you register for a Membership Account you will be asked to provide Personal Information. You may also be asked to provide Personal Information when you participate in various services and offerings available through our Site, when you contact us via phone, mail, or otherwise, and when you participate in our sweepstakes, contests, surveys and related promotions. The Personal Information we may collect and store includes, but is not limited to, the following categories of information:

● your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, year of birth, and gender, information concerning your hobbies, interests and occupation, and financial information (for billing purposes); and community discussions, chats and correspondence.

Anonymous Data. When you use our Site we may collect data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information ("Anonymous Data"). Anonymous Data does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons.

Information Collected from Other Sources. We may obtain information about you from other sources, such as companies that update and verify email and physical addresses, for the purpose of updating and enhancing our files.

User Communities on our Site. Our Site includes community areas (e.g., forums, bulletin boards and chat rooms) in which you may participate after establishing a Membership Account. Although your participation in these communities is governed by this privacy policy, there are certain important characteristics of these communities that you should always keep in mind. We use Membership Account registration information and other information users provide as they interact within the communities to:

● authenticate users; provide communications from us to users regarding the community; and administer the community (including, but not limited to, managing the technical requirements of the site and monitoring submissions and posts for offensive content after posting and removing such content in our sole discretion).

Please note that information (including your name, email address, address, or phone number) you provide in a posting on community or any bulletin board is available (even after you stop participating in the community) to any other individual who has access to that same community and may be used by another individual in a manner unintended by you, including as a target for unsolicited communications. You should therefore treat any information provided by you in the content of a submission or post to a community as public information. For this reason, we urge you to act cautiously in providing any such information in your submissions or posts, as we are not liable for any use or misuse by an individual user of the information you provide in a submission or post. Upon termination of a community, Personal Information we collected through the community will continue to be treated in accordance with this privacy policy.


Personal Information. We use Personal Information you provide to us for our business purposes, such as:

● to allow you to access your Membership Account; (ii) to confirm your identity; (iii) for marketing our products and services to you and to customize this advertising and marketing information; (iv) to contact you regarding your Membership Account and to keep records regarding your Membership Account; (v) to carry-out promotions, including but not limited to sweepstakes, contests surveys and related promotions that you have entered; (vi) to provide the services and products you request and to respond to your other requests and inquiries', (vii) to enhance our service offerings; and (viii) to adjust our Site to your personal preferences.

Anonymous Data. Anonymous Data may be used to analyze request and usage patterns so that we may enhance our Site and to improve Site navigation. We reserve the right to use Anonymous Data for any purpose and disclose Anonymous Data to third parties at our sole and absolute discretion.

Marketing. We do not sell or rent your Personal Information to third parties for their marketing purposes. We may aggregate and use certain non-personally identifiable information for research or marketing purposes and may share, sell and rent or trade that information and statistical data derived from such information with our marketing partners, advertisers, or other third parties for research or marketing purposes.


The Site is available worldwide and may be operated from various locations both within and outside the United States of America ("USA"). If you are accessing and using the Site from outside the USA, please note the information that you provide may be transferred to the USA or other countries which may not provide the same level of legal data protection as the country from which you access our Site. By using our Site and submitting information to us, you consent to such transfers and the processing of information by us as described in this privacy policy and you authorize this practice .

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from Children. If you are a parent or guardian and you learn that your Child or Children have provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. While we are not under any obligation to actively monitor our site for such information, if we become aware that we have collected Personal Information from a Child or Children under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will do our best to remove that information from our servers in a timely manner.


We employ reasonable security measures, including administrative, technical, and physical measures, to protect Personal Information from unauthorized access, loss, alteration, use or disclosure. However, Personal Information can never be 100% secure; third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the Site.

You may opt-out of receiving certain types of communications from us ("Optional Communications"). However, you will not be able to opt-out of receiving other types of communications, such as service announcements and administrative messages, as these types of communications are necessary if you have an account with us. You may opt-out of receiving Optional Communications by following the instructions set forth in those communications or by accessing your account and following the instructions. If you have any questions regarding your ability to opt-out of receiving certain types of communications please contact us using our contact information set forth below in "Contact GoAntiques".
