Privacy Statement Update

Preamble

You have probably heard of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by now. We need to conform with this legislation by the 25th May 2018. Here is the layman’s overview of what we do at Auctions in a Day.

We record a few things on paper at the auctions and electronically via our web site and Facebook page. They are only used for the auction’s business they are not sold on or shared.

At the auction we record for sellers: your names, telephone numbers, email and addresses on the lotting sheets. For buyers: your name, bidder number and telephone number are recorded in the book. We record who buys the lots with our buyer cards. We keep these indefinitely.

For subscribers to our web site posts, your email address is saved by Jet Pack for WordPress.com and the data managed by them. You can unsubscribe at any time with the links on the emails you receive. We cannot do this for you. We can download the list of email addresses but we only do this to estimate the percentage of real emails!

If you comment on our website pages and posts you are asked for your name and email address. You can also leave a web site link. Some comments are answered via email and then deleted. They never appear on the web site. Others are replied to via the website and your name but not your email will be revealed. We will also know the IP address you sent it from. 95% of our comments are spam and automatically segregated! The rest are only made visible after we approve them. We keep them indefinitely.

If you use our web site you will have at sometime been asked to accept or not cookies being recorded about your activity on the web site. In general this is anonymous information based on the IP address you used to browse the web site. One use of a cookie is to stop you getting repeating pop ups for the next auction.

Now the slightly more complex stuff. We use Google Analytics, Clicky and Facebook Pixel to gather more detailed information about visitors to our web site. For instance we know that:

  • 88% of you are from the UK (or rather your Internet Service Provider is)
  • 27% of our visitors bounce i.e. open a page and are scared off very quickly (a much lower percentage than most web sites)
  • 12% of visitors are from Facebook and
  • About half of our visitor find us via a search, of which 70% were from Google.

The Facebook Pixel and Google cookies will provide more information to them, if you visit our website whilst logged in to their sites. The Facebook Pixel is useful to us because we can focus our Facebook advertising on the type of people who visit our site. All the processing and data storage is done by Facebook. You may be able to opt out of this with your Facebook settings. Google would do similar things with adverts on our web site but we don’t do that.

Cycle Auction becomes Cycle Jumble on 9th June

Cycle Auction at Itchen Abbas - 6 June 2014
Cycle Auction at Itchen Abbas – 6 June 2014

After five years of cycle auctions, several things conspired against running one this June. We are pleased to say Andrew Wilcox will run a Cycle Jumble at Itchen Abbas on the 9th June.

Cycle jumbles are very popular all over the country. At Ripley north of Guildford there were perhaps 50 sellers a couple of weeks ago.

What will you find at a cycle jumble? Bikes, parts, clothing, tools, books, manuals, everything to do with bikes.

The basics are:

  • Book a table for £10 in advance or £15 on the day. Please enquire for variations on this. e.g. half a table, one bike.  Sellers set their own prices but please ask if you need help with this.
  • Turn up with the items you wish to sell at 08:00.
  • Buyers are admitted at 09:00 for £1. Advance buyers can gain entrance for £5 whilst sellers are setting up.
  • Cycle Jumble closes at 13:00.
  • The hall must be clear by 14:00.
  • There will of course be excellent home cakes and refreshments.

For more details please visit Cycle Jumble on the Alresford Mobile Cycle Repairs web site.
or the Facebook event page
or call Andrew on 07813 211451 or email Andrew on andrew@alrescycle.co.uk

Please note Auctions in a Day are not running this event. It will be run by Alresford Mobile Cycle Repairs aka Andrew Wilcox.

You may like to go on the Alresford Music Festival in the afternoon and evening.
