Privacy Policy

We are going to explain you in an easy and understandable way our privacy policy, this is: what data of you do we keep and process, how, where and for which purposes. And what rights do you have upon those data you have given us to offer you our services. Let's go:

When customers sign up in, they accept the following statement by ticking a box:

If customes do not accept this condition, the sing up is not possible. For this reason, any customer registered in has given us his express, informed and free permission to process his data as detailed below, as he accepts this privacy policy, or the sign up is rejected. And this is like this since February 19, 2014, long before the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 27, 2016 relating to the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and the free circulation of these data came into force.

The data we ask our customers when they sign up are the following:

First and Second names



Home and/or Cell phone (optional)

Nothing else. No credit card numbers, no bank account numbers, as the only payment systems we accept are bank transfer to our account (not charge on the customer's account) and PayPal.

And this is what we do with your data:

1.- We process it only to keep our commercial relationship with you.

2.- We keep it in an authomatic file in our server, hosted in the United States of America under the protection of the Privacy Shield agreement, and for this reason the international transfer of your data is legal.

3.- We use it to send you your orders. This is, we give them to the Spanish post to send you the packages. No one else gets your data from us.

4.- We send you our Newsletter, and you can unsubscribe using the link in the footer of any Newsletter email.

5.- We send you other emails necessary to keep our commercial relationship: sign up confirmation, forgotten password emails, order confirmation, payment acceptation, processing of the order, shipping of the order, bids you place, bids placed in the same lots than you by other bidders, higher bids in the lots you bid for, end of auction (if you have won a lot or not) and ended auction reminders. You only receive such emails if you take the described actions in our site.

We do not install any unnecessary cookies in your computer, neither we use tracking tools or analytics of visitors (and this is why we don't have that annoying cookie banner seen almost everywhere). We only install a single cookie in your browser because if we didn't would not work. This cookie keeps during 24 hours your session preferences: language, presentation of the articles in a list or a gird, shopping cart and, if you have logged in to your account, it mantains you connected until you log out. Nothing else. See here our detailed Cookies Policy.

We also have personal data of individuals who are not customers, but they have subscribet to our Newsletter. The only data we have about this people are first and second names (optional) and email (necessary to recieve our Newsletter). To subscribe to the Newsletter the user hav accepted specific conditions giving us their express, free and informed consent to keep and treat the requested data (see those specific conditions here: To unsubscribe it is easier as for registered customers: use the link in the footer of any Newsletter email and you will stop receiving it.

What do we not do with your data:

We do not sell them, we do not give them, we do not let access them to anyone who does not need them to offer you our services, we do not print them, we do not keep them without an appropiated security level, neither anything except what we have explained in the previous point.

What can you do with the data of you we keep:

Whatever you want. They are yours and we only keep them because you have lend them to us. This is why you can use the following rights:

A) Access: allows the owner of the data to obtain information about whether in Colectalia we are processing personal data that concern him or not and, in such case, right to obtain information about his personal data submitted to treatment.

B) Rectification: it allows to correct errors and modify the data that prove to be inaccurate or incomplete.

C) Deletion: allows the data to be deleted and ceased to be treated by Colectalia, unless there is a legal obligation to keep them and / or other legitimate reasons for its treatment by Colectalia do not prevail. For example, when personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected, the customer may request that we suppress these data without undue delay.

D) Limitation: under the legally established conditions, it allows the processing of data to be paralyzed, in such a way that Colectalia avoids its treatment in the future, which will only be retained for the exercise or defense of claims.

E) Opposition: in certain circumstances and for reasons related to their particular situation, the interested parties may object to the processing of their data. Colectalia will stop processing the data, except for compelling legitimate reasons, or the exercise or defense of possible claims.

F) Portability: allows the interested party to receive their personal data and be able to transmit it directly to another responsible in a structured, commonly used and mechanical reading format. To exercise this right, it will be necessary for the client to provide a valid email.

To exercise any of these rights you must send an email to or a letter to Colectalia
Miquel i Badia 2-4, 2n 4a
08024 Barcelona

Each time we significantly change this privacy policy we are going to notifiy you, if it means new data treatment or a big change in it.

This is the version 2 of Privacy Policy, dated on May 10, 2018.
