(“3Ora”), including 3Ora’s websites and its meetings, and messaging platform (“3Ora Products”).

3Ora publishes this Privacy Policy to let you know how we collect, use, and disclose your personal information in the course of operating our business. It also describes your rights in relation to this information. In some circumstances, such as for certain events, we may provide additional information regarding our data practices. This Privacy Policy applies to any 3Ora service, event, website, mobile application or other digital or non-digital service, and any hard copy (paper) form which provides a link to or refers to this Privacy Policy.

For those who reside in California, please see the end of this Policy for additional information regarding our practices.


Personal information is information, or a combination of pieces of information, that could reasonably allow you to be identified. As described in more detail below, we collect personal information about you from a variety of sources, including information we collect from you directly, information we collect about you from other sources, and information we collect automatically from you.

Information We Collect Directly From You

We collect information that you submit to us. The types of information that we collect directly from you include: personal details (e.g., name, date of birth, alias and/or avatar alias), contact details (e.g., phone number, email address, postal address), transaction information (e.g., bidding or purchase records, shipping details, information about items you purchase or wish to consign), details about your collection, limited financial information (e.g., tokenized payment information in connection with your purchases, wire instructions, digital wallet details and address), username and password, user ID, unique device ID, information on forms required for certain transactions (e.g. social security number), and identification information (e.g. photo ID).

We rely on the information you provide to us or that we collect or observe about your individual interactions with us, for example, if you attend a live event, consign property, participate in one of our auctions, become a client, register or bid online.

Information We Collect From Other Sources

We share information within the 3Ora. We may collect information about you from external sources, including social media sites and data supplementation services. The types of information we collect about you from other sources include your public profile information, family relationships, and organizational affiliations. We may work to expand our customer base by acquiring names, contact data, financial information, affiliations, and demographic information from other sources such as private companies, public registers, and social media sites, where permitted by law. We may also generate information such as appraisals, profiles, and a history of our relationships with you based on the information you have provided or that we have obtained from other sources, as permitted under applicable law.

Information We Collect Automatically

We may make video recordings of our auctions, gallery spaces, and certain live events.

We record calls made to our customer care line for quality assurance, compliance purposes, and recordkeeping purposes.

We may use common data collection technologies as you visit our websites or apps or interact with our emails. For example:

  • Our logs gather date, time, information about your browser and system or device configuration, information about how you interact with our digital properties, and an IP address for all visitors to our sites.
  • If you have registered with us online, we use data collection technologies to collect information that indicates your individual interests in our websites, online platforms and apps, and your response to our emails and marketing campaigns.
  • The Cookies and similar technologies on our digital platforms can also read and collect data about your browsers as you visit and interact with those platforms: please read our Cookie Policy for more detailed information about what cookies are, what kinds are used on our sites, and what choices you have.

  • In general, our app will communicate data you provide about yourself, for example, registration, purchase, or bidding data, to our databases and systems. An app may, however, rely on other data collection technologies to recognize the device you use for viewing and to personalize your experience. If our app relies on additional data collection technologies that collect or use data about individual users, we will include additional notice either within the app or in a policy that accompanies it.
  • We also use and allow certain other companies to use technologies that are similar to cookies (for example pixels and gifs) when we send you emails.
