Cookies (top)

Cookies are small pieces of information that some Web sites store on your computer's hard drive when you visit them. Like many other Web sites, Bid4Assets uses cookies to identify members so they do not have to enter a user id and password upon each visit. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies but allow you to modify security settings so you can approve or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis.

Bid4Assets uses cookies in a limited way. Cookies enable us to deliver content specific to your interests; they also tell us if you are using a browser that may not be compatible with our service.

Some of our sellers and service affiliates use "cookies".  Because we do not control the privacy policies of these non-Bid4Assets Web sites to which we may provide hyperlinks, you should check the privacy policy of sites you visit if you have concerns about their use of cookies.

We recommend that you use one of the two most popular browsers for your online sessions. If you are not currently using the most up-to-date versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, we urge you to upgrade now. If you need to update your browser please click here .
