MONSTER Privacy Policy

This website is hosted in Canada. Effective January 1, 2004, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) became law in Canada. PIPEDA sets out the rules for collecting, managing, using and disclosing personal information. At MONSTER we are committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information under the applicable privacy protection law. This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes MONSTER’s (“our”, “we” or “us”) practices with respect to personal information collected in connection with our website and MONSTER mobile app (collectively, the “Website”). This Policy applies to all individuals who access, browse, or use the Website and/or who submit information through the Website. If you do not agree to the practices described in this Policy, do not access, navigate, or use the Website.

In such cases, we will post the revised version on the Website with a revised Effective Date, and we will try to post it in advance of any changes taking effect. We encourage you to visit this page from time to time to look for updates.

PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We have taken what we believe to be commercially reasonable measures to protect personal information that is provided through the Website. Nevertheless, no transmission of information on the Internet is perfectly secure, and we do not promise that the measures we have taken will be sufficient to protect your personal information. In addition, the measures we have taken are not designed for sensitive personal information so please do not provide us with sensitive personal information. The following is a summary of the measures MONSTER takes to protect your information and descriptions of ways we implement these measures for different types of information you may provide to us:

Secure Socket Layer (SSL): MONSTER uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption when transmitting certain kinds of information, such as financial services information or payment information. An icon resembling a padlock is displayed on the bottom of most browsers window during SSL transactions that involve credit cards and other forms of payment. Any time MONSTER asks you for a credit card number for payment or for verification purposes, it will be SSL encrypted. The information you provide will be stored securely on our servers. Once you choose to store or enter your credit card number on MONSTER, it will not be displayed back to you in its entirety when you retrieve or edit it in the future.

Instead of the entire number, you will only see asterisks and either the first four digits or the last four digits of your number.

Vendors and Partners: MONSTER works with vendors and partners to protect the security and privacy of user information.

Employee and Contractor Access to Information: MONSTER limits access to personal information about you to those employees whom we reasonably believe need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs.

Education and Training for Employees: MONSTER has implemented a company-wide education and training program about security that is required of every MONSTER employee.


We reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to MONSTER services and your account with MONSTER, including but not limited to notifications, service announcements, and administrative messages without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them. Should you choose not to receive certain communications your access to or use of certain services may not be possible.

If MONSTER learns of a security systems breach we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. MONSTER may post a notice on our Website if a security breach occurs. MONSTER may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice) you should notify us at


Upon request, you will be informed of the existence, use and disclosure of your personal information and will be given access to that information. You will be able to challenge the accuracy and completeness of the information and have it amended as appropriate.

Increment Bidding Guidelines.

Increment bidding allows Copart to increase your entered bid by one and only one increment in the event your entered bid is tied with a bid from another member. If your bid is the highest bid, then your bid will NOT be incremented. Our increments are based on the following table :
Bid Range $ Increment $
0 - 5 1
5 - 40 5
40 - 100 10
100 - 1,000 25
1,000 - 5,000 50
5,000 - 25,000 100
25,000 - 50,000 250
50,000 - 100,000 500
100,000 - 9,999,999.99 1,000

Note: The bid increment checkbox is selected by default.

Example 1: You checked the increment bid box and bid $15,000. Another bid of $15,000 has already been placed. Your bid is placed next at $15,100 because you checked the increment bid box. The car sells to you at no more than $15,100 (unless another Member bids $15,200 or more, either during pre-bidding or in the live online auction).
