You can browse the Portal without telling TRADEINSPOT who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. However, when you register, we ask for information about yourself, such as your name, email, and mailing address, which we collect and use as disclosed in this Privacy Policy. We may also collect additional information about you when you engage in certain activities on the Portal, such as provide transactional information when you trade-in a device. If you choose to provide us with personal information, you consent to the transfer and storage of that information by us.
