3. Personal Information Collected and Used
“Personal Information” is information through which you can be identified. Providing your personal information to Luxury Buys Today is your choice.

Personal Information that Luxury Buys Today may collect from you includes, but is not limited to, your name, mailing address(es), telephone number(s), facsimile number(s), email address(es), birth date, biographical information, employment information, and any other information that you voluntarily provide. Personal Information you volunteer is used by Luxury Buys Today to provide you with the Services you requested, such as a referral to a sales representative for a specified brand, or to receive referrals from interested customers. Personal Information you provide is also used to complete requested transactions, ensure appropriate legal use of the Services, provide you with newsletters, e-mails and other notifications about the Websites or Services, and to help provide you with technical support for the Services.
You may provide your Personal Information to Luxury Buys Today in a variety of ways, and the type of information and method for collection will depend on the context and nature of the interaction. For example:
• Registration – in order to access certain portions of the Websites, or use the mobile applications or other Services, you must create a registered account. To create an account, you may provide your full name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, date of birth, nationality and gender. You will also need to create a user name and password that you will use to access your account. We strongly encourage you not to use Personal Information in your username or password.

Your user profile will be publicly viewable by other users and visitors to the Websites and/or Services. Your profile information can include such things as your picture, an avatar, biographical information, current and former employment information, contacts, social media or Third Party Platform handles and/or user names, links to your profiles on other websites, and anything else that you’ve chosen to share or include in your profile.
• Sweepstakes and other prize promotions – from time to time, Luxury Buys Today may present sweepstakes, contests, special offers or other promotions, and in order for you to enter and win such promotions, you may need to provide Personal Information. The type and amount of Personal Information required will depend on the promotion.
• Feedback, Forums, Message Boards and Newsletters – When you post a comment on the Websites or any Luxury Buys Today forums or message boards, take a survey, communicate through a mobile application, or otherwise provide feedback regarding the Services, your name and/or user name and avatar or profile photo may appear with that comment or feedback. If you send us an e-mail with questions or comments, or to report a problem with the Websites or Services, we will use your Personal Information to reply to your questions or comments, or otherwise address the problem. If you sign up to receive e-mail newsletters or other notifications from the Websites or Services, we will use your name and e-mail address to provide you with that newsletter or notification.

We will store your invitations, but will not use this information to send further communications to such persons without their consent. In addition to any unsubscribe links that may be in such communications, your invitees can contact us at privacy@LuxuryBuysToday.com to request that their information be removed from our database.
• Contacts – As part of the Services, we may allow you to import, upload and/or view your address book or contact listing from another application or website or Third Party Platform to enable you to more easily share your profile, topics and/or other information hosted or displayed on the Websites and/or through the Services with your contacts. We will only store and maintain the Personal Information about your contacts when you specifically provide that information to us through your user account or profile. That Personal Information about your contacts will not be used or shared for any other purpose.
• ID Tokens – When you use the Services on or through our Websites or any Third Party Platform, Luxury Buys Today will assign a unique identifying token (“ID Token”) which is used internally by Luxury Buys Today and is not publicly displayed.

4. Personal Information Used and Shared
Luxury Buys Today will share your Personal Information with the third parties who will or may provide you with the Services you have requested.
