AutoBidMaster takes your security seriously and takes reasonable steps to protect your personal information. AutoBidMaster uses Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) encryption when transmitting certain kinds of personal information, such as financial and other sensitive information.

Any time AutoBidMaster asks you for driver’s license number or a credit card number for payment or for verification purposes, it will be SSL encrypted. The personal information you provide will be stored securely on AutoBidMaster’s servers. However, no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.
