- Our Collection of Your Personal Data
Bidurk collects and uses personal data to deliver our services, inform you of various opportunities, and provide support, as described below (please also see the How We Use Information section below).
Personal Data That You Voluntarily Provide to Us
Bidurk mainly collects personal data directly from you when you interact with our services, and Account Managers. For example, you voluntarily provide us with personal data when you purchase one of our packages, complete a web form, call or email us directly, request a demonstration of our services, or upload data to our software.
The types of personal data that we collect vary based on the services we offer, but generally include your full name, company, job title, email address, address and phone number, and other information that you voluntarily give to us.
When you subscribe for services through our website we will collect the information that you elect to upload to your account, which may include additional personal information, such as your image. Not all of that information will necessarily be personal information.
Information Received from Other Sources
We may also collect information that is provided, posted or uploaded by users to the Bidurk User Facebook Group, or your YouTube Channel which may include personal information. We do not control the content that users post to our user group. You should carefully consider whether you wish to submit personal data and whether you wish to make your profile available to other users, and you should tailor any content you submit appropriately. You should also review any additional terms and conditions that may govern your use of those services.

We use Google Workspace, which means that your social media linked profiles and other Google information may be linked to other information we hold about you.
