Privacy Statement

The privacy and protection of your personal and financial information is very important to us.  That is why we have created this privacy statement, which fully describes our information gathering and dissemination practices.  It is the best way we can demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy.  We use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • Creating and personalizing your account information.
  • Delivering the appropriate bid information to you.
  • Facilitating restricted promotions when applicable.
  • Providing us with the information we need to support your company with utilizing this Online Bid System.

Use of Your Information

We may also use information from your account based on your site visits to generate statistics and aggregate reports for internal use, which may be shown to affiliates, subsidiaries, licensees, successors, and partners.  These statistics and aggregate reports will not contain any personally identifiable information and your identity will be kept anonymous.  Certain confidential information -- such as your password, or PIN# (i.e., digital signature), will not be disclosed in any of these reports.

You will not be contacted by any third party as a result of your relationship with BidNet and the Participating Organizations on this System.

Security Precautions

Our site has stringent security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of information under our control.  Usernames, passwords, PIN #s, Federal ID and/or SSN numbers are all stored in this database as encrypted.

In addition, your account information is password-protected so that you and only you have access to this personal information.  Please do not disclose your password to anyone.  Always remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you are finished using this System.  This helps keep your account safe.

While we strive to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information, no data transmission over the Internet is guaranteed to be 100% secure.  Thus, BidNet and the Participating Organizations cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information during transmission to or from this site, and you submit information to us at your own risk.  However, we do our best to ensure the highest level of security.


We are committed to providing personalized products and services to you.  In order to do so, the Michigan Inter-governmental Trade Network uses cookies to store a unique identifier.  A cookie is defined as a small amount of text that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive.  If your browser is configured to enable cookies, then your browser adds the text sent to the appropriate file.  Your browser will only allow this System to read cookies that come from this web server.  This means that other websites will not be able to use any information that we store on your computer as a cookie.

The Michigan Inter-governmental Trade Network uses cookies to tell us that you have visited this site before, to automatically display information you have requested.  They are used to help us simplify and enhance your experience while on this site.
