Your Personal Information

HotMush Auctions offer several opportunities for visitors to register for promotional and informational mailings, and to receive assistance in evaluating our software and services. We do not collect any personal information about visitors to our websites unless they choose to provide it voluntarily. We define “personal information” as information that personally identifies an individual or allows us to contact you. Such information might include a phone number, name or email address.

We also provide online tools that our customers use to operate aspects of their business or organization for purposes of fundraising, customer relationship management, childcare centers or camp operations, online donation and auction services, and social engagement among others. In providing these tools, HotMush Auctions processes data to our customers or their constituents submit to our services, or instruct us to process on their behalf. While HotMush Auctions customers or their constituents decide what data to submit, it typically includes information about their constituents, donations, and contact information.

Information submitted to us is only available to employees for purposes of contacting customers, sending materials based on their requests for information, providing news and relevant information about our company, or supporting our products and services that our customers utilize. We also use this information to help us determine their needs related to our software solutions. Users may opt out of receiving future mailings at any time by sending an email to

By using our Websites, you understand and consent to the collection, storage, processing, and transfer of your information to our facilities in the United States.

Sharing and Usage

HotMush Auctions will not sell, share, rent, or disclose your personal information without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law. We occasionally contract with other companies to provide limited services on our behalf for the purposes of providing and improving our services, or serving you better. Examples of such services might include (but are not limited to) mailing services, data de-duplication services and address verification services. We will provide those companies only the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

IP Information Tracked

We use your IP address to administer our web site, help diagnose problems with our servers, and to identify the general geographic region of the device in order to provide the most efficient service capacity to that region. An IP address is a unique identifier used by devices to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. We track browser types and versions to help us understand our visitors’ needs related to our web site design. We currently do not process Do Not Track signals sent by your Internet browser because a universal technology standard has not yet been fully established.


Cookies are small alphanumeric identifiers created by your browser on your system when you visit a website. They do not gather or provide personally identifiable information. We use cookies to enable our systems to recognize your browser and ensure a fluid, secure, and consistent user experience. Client-side cookies store preferences, identify where you are in a process, help to prevent you from entering information repeatedly, and provide page usage statistics in order for us to provide an optimal experience. We also use cookies to track and measure the success of our website and marketing campaigns in meeting your informational needs. Additionally, visitors that entered our sites by responding to a Google Adwords Advertisement may be associated with a site conversion in Google’s advertising tracking tool. If a user rejects the cookie, he may still use our site; however, the user’s access to some areas or functionality within our website may be limited.


We take the security of our systems very seriously and take appropriate measures to ensure it remains safe. While no website can guarantee security, we maintain appropriate technical and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. HotMush Auctions takes care to reinforce the importance of our web site visitors’ security and privacy among our employees.

We will refer your request to that customer, and will support them as needed in responding to your request.
