SHARING YOUR INFORMATION
Personal vs Non-Personal Aggregated Information:
Under this Policy, "Personal Information" means information that by itself can be used to identify or contact a specific person (for example, a person’s name, email address, postal address or phone number), and Personal Information does not include information that has been aggregated or made anonymous so that by itself, it no longer identifies and can no longer reasonably be used to contact a specific person. We will only share your Personal Information with others in the ways described in this Policy, or otherwise with your prior consent.
We may share with individuals, third parties or Sellers certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information, such as the number of Users on the site, or how many Users have viewed a profile or clicked on a particular item. Such information will never identify you individually.
Our Services may include features, such as messaging tools and email addresses hosted on our Services, that enable you to contact and communicate with other Sellers. For example, when a Seller lists Goods on our Services, our Services may enable you to contact them about that item or about other items they may have available. When you use our Services to contact the Seller or any other User, they may obtain Personal Information such as your name or email address. Please note that other Sellers may have their own privacy policies that apply to their use of that information, and you may wish to consult them about their policies before sharing information. As mentioned, this Policy does not apply to any entity that we do not own or control, or to any person that we do not employ or manage, and we are not responsible for their privacy policies or practices.
Acquisition or Merger:
If our business is sold or merged, or if we sell or buy any business or assets, your Personal Information may be one of the assets transferred to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets. We will make sure that any such transfer is done in a secure way.
We will not otherwise disclose, sell or distribute your information to any third party without your permission unless we are required to do so by law or to obtain professional advice. We will retain your information for as long as is reasonable and necessary and no longer than permitted by law.
