Thank you for visiting our DUAIV Auctions website, including our mobile device-ready version. This website is operated by DUAIV LLC. Throughout this document, the terms “DUAIV, DUAIV Auctions”, “we”, “us” and “our” refer to DUAIV LLC. DUAIV strives to make our website a useful tool and a rewarding experience for our customers and collectors by tailoring the content to your personal needs and interests. This way, the content of our website will be as relevant as possible for you, the customer, or the collector. We hope that you find our website to be a useful part of your art-buying-collecting experience.
This policy was implemented as of June 30, 2020, and applies to information collected on this website and those of our affiliates (together, “our website” or “the website”) and covers the following areas:
- What personally identifiable information is collected by DUAIV Auctions or by any third party through our website;
- How DUAIV Auctions uses this information;
- With whom DUAIV Auctions may share this information;
- What choices are available to you as a user of our website with respect to the collection, use and distribution of the information; and
- What types of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control.
Information Collection and Use
DUAIV Auctions collects two different types of information through our website: anonymous information and personally identifiable information.
We collect and store anonymous, aggregate information (such as internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, search engines, the internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and the number of clicks) from all visitors to our website. You may search our website for paintings, watercolor, other artwork, and products for sale or available via auctions, prices, and other information provided through our website without ever submitting your name, email address or any other personally identifiable information. The anonymous information that we do collect from your visit is never linked to any of your personally identifiable information until you voluntarily submit that personal information, in which case some otherwise anonymous information may be connected to your website activity and personal account. Otherwise, the anonymous information is only used in the aggregate to analyze trends, administer the website, diagnose any problems, track a visitor’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We may provide this anonymous information in aggregate form to other parties or use it for our own insight or marketing purposes. Our ability to use this information is not restricted in any way.
We collect personal data through our internet access logs. When you access our website, your internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our internet access logs (i.e., log files on the server). We also record the URLs of the websites and pages you visit, the times and dates of such visits, information about the device type, computer hardware, and software you use.
This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, and version, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data, number of visits, websites from which you accessed our site (Referrer), and websites that are accessed by your system via our site.
We also use “cookies” and “image tags” to collect certain usage information from all customers and visitors to our website. A “cookie” is a small text file that a website can place on your computer’s hard drive or on your mobile device’s memory in order to collect information about your activities on our website. An “image tag,” also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, works together with cookies and is a small image file that may be located in various areas of our website. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you have the option to change your browser setting to decline them.
Accepting cookies in no way gives us access to your computer or any personal information about you since cookies are not used to identify anonymous website visitors. Our cookies enable you to proceed smoothly through our website and know whether you’ve used it before, so as to eliminate some steps that apply to new visitors. Cookies also give us usage data like how often you visit, where you go on our website, and what you do while here.
Similarly, a cookie may be placed by our third-party advertising companies. These companies may use aggregated statistics about your use of our website and third party media in order to provide you with advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. The information they collect does not include your personal information.
The third-party advertising companies may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of ads. Any such information is anonymous. They may use this anonymous information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. No personal information about you is collected during this process. The information is anonymous and does not link online actions to an identifiable person.
DUAIV Auctions partners with third-party advertising company Google to collect information about how users navigate our website and we use many or all of their products to enhance our website experience. Like DUAIV Auctions, Google is very much committed to consumer protection, to maintaining the privacy of your personal information and to making ads safe, unobtrusive, and relevant for you.
Google uses this information only to generate anonymous visitor profiles, which do not contain personally identifiable information. These anonymous profiles are used to provide you content specifically tailored to you. To learn more about how Google collects and manages information, or to opt-out of Google’s collection of information about how you navigate our website, please go to https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
Among the Google products we use is Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google. The information generated by cookies about your use of our website (including your shortened IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of our website, compile reports on website activity for our website operators and to provide other services related to the website and internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law, or where third parties process these data on behalf of Google. For more information about Google Analytics and how it collects and processes data, please go to “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps”, located at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. To opt-out of Google Analytics, please go to https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
To help us manage our advertising and website, Google offers many products in addition to Google Analytics, including Google’s Analytics for Display Advertisers, AdSense, AdWords, and a range of DoubleClick-branded services. DUAIV Auctions might participate in an integrated version of Google Analytics and DoubleClick products or services and/or other Google display ad products or services, known as Google Analytics for Display Advertisers. As with Google Analytics, you can learn more about Google Analytics for Display Advertisers, or you can opt-out, by going to https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
We have or may enable interest-based advertising features, including remarketing, with Google Analytics in connection with other Google services. This kind of advertising based on consumer interests and your precise geographic location may, in addition to remarketing, include Google’s Adword product features known as interest categories, similar audiences, other types of interest-based advertising, and demographic and location targeting. DoubleClick advertising cookies or mobile advertising identifiers, associated with your use of our website, are or may be employed by us in all aspects of remarketing in online advertising.
“Remarketing” is simply a feature of interest-based advertising that lets us reach people who have previously visited our website. Remarketing helps us match interested people, like you, with a relevant message on our website or even when you search on Google using our keywords, use Google products like Gmail, or visit other websites. We gather information through cookies for remarketing, and similar audiences feature in AdWords, simply to make your visits relevant and allow us both to pick up where we left off on your last visit.
Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, so we are not currently set up to respond to those signals.
Personally Identifiable Information
We require the submission of certain personally identifiable information when you use some services available on our website. For example, your use of your user name and password allows us to identify you as our customer who wants to take part in an auction and eventually bid on one or multiple auction items. Our website uses a variety of contact forms for visitors to request information, bid, purchase, and more. We collect a visitor’s contact information (like his or her email address or phone number) and in some cases, demographic information (like a zip code). In limited circumstances, such as when a visitor fills out an order after winning an auction, we collect unique identifiers (like a shipping address), and/or financial information (like credit card numbers). We use this information to process an order, deliver our products or to get in touch with our prospective customers and collectors about their requests, and to send them additional information about our artwork, products, and services.
Any financial information we collect is used to bill for products and services ordered. This information goes into a secure database and is used solely to provide the service you requested. The collection, use, and storage of your financial information for billing may be subject to additional privacy policies and if so, you will be notified of them at the time of any such collection, use, or storage of your financial information as required by law.
Google Tag Manager (GTM)
- Google Analytics
- Facebook Conversion Pixels
- Other third-party tools
Urchin Tracking Module (UTM)
UTM tags are not tools. UTM works as a custom URL for marketing campaigns and reports can be viewed in platforms like Google Analytics. UTM tags are appended as part of the visible URL in marketing programs to understand the specific instance of a link. UTM tag reports are observed in Google Analytics and other third-party tools for understanding visitors to our website. These details are collected at an aggregated level. Customizing the URL with UTM tags allows us to better understand the marketing activity, which then allows us to better serve our audience.
The tracking occurs via the UTM parameters that are appended in the URL. When a user clicks a UTM tagged URL, based on the parameters set, we will be able to track from which end source the user has interacted with that URL.
Facebook conversion pixels
We use the “Custom Audience pixel” of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) on our website. With its help, we can keep track of what users do after they see or click on a Facebook advertisement. This enables us to monitor the effectiveness of Facebook ads for purposes of statistics and market research. Data collected in this way is anonymous to us, which means we cannot see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is saved and processed by Facebook. Facebook can connect this data with your Facebook account and use it for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s Data Policy which can be found at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. You can allow Facebook and its partners to place ads on and outside of Facebook. A cookie can also be saved on your device for these purposes.

Our Website may allow you to submit information about your general location, such as your zip code or address. With your consent, our website also may capture and record certain precise geo-location or global positioning data from your device in order to provide location-related functionality. We may link such location data to other information that you provide to us or that may be accessed in connection with your use of our website. If we combine any location information with personal information, we will treat the combined information as personal information as long as it is combined.
We may provide the opportunity to sign-up for punctual or periodic email marketing campaigns by entering in your email address and confirming it by clicking on a confirmation link sent to you by us by e-mail (double opt-in).
In some cases, we may ask you for further information, such as name, occupation, address, or telephone number. Regarding the processing of this personal data, you will be asked to grant your explicit consent.
Our Use Restrictions on Your Personally Identifiable Information
DUAIV Auctions does not sell, rent, or share personally identifiable information to or with any third party not affiliated with or owned by DUAIV Auctions, except service providers who may assist us in such areas as our promotions, data storage and order processing. DUAIV Auctions will never give or sell your personally identifiable information to unaffiliated third parties to be used for the purposes of sending you unsolicited commercial offers, such as spam. We may, however, use your personal information to send you commercial offers in e-mails from DUAIV Auctions or its affiliated companies, which do not relate to the products or services you have ordered. You may altogether avoid or opt-out of these marketing campaigns (see “Opting Out” below).
