with law enforcement authorities if we judge that such cooperation is necessary to combat fraud or other crime.

to disclose such technical information in respect of individual website visitors to a third party (except for law-enforcement bodies and then only in

provisions in this regard), unless obliged to disclose such information by a rule of law. The technical information will be used only by
Sheppard’s Irish Auction House, and only for statistical and other administrative purposes. You should note that technical details, which we
