Information Collected or Received
The protection of the Personal Information and your privacy is important to us. We do not disclose the Personal Information to any third parties except for our service providers engaged by us to perform some functions on our behalf, including, but not limited to, data entry, database management, promotions, products and services alerts, product inspection, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, payment extension services, membership authentication and verifications services, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service (the “Service Providers”). These Service Providers are under a duty of confidentiality to us and are only permitted to use the Personal Information in connection with their functions and not for their own purposes (including direct marketing).
We may disclose the Personal Information to a third-party in order to protect, establish, or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; comply with a subpoena, court order, legal process, or other legal requirement; or when we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss, or investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, threats to our property, or violations of the Terms of Service.
The user understands that the Personal Information is available and accessible by our employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide Services to you or in order to do their jobs.
The security of the Personal Information is important to us. We use certain technologies to secure sensitive information (such as credit card number). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
The user account is protected by a password. The user shall be responsible for security of its user account. Please keep your account and password confidential. The user shall be responsible for any activities that happen on or through your account. Any actions in or with the Website performed through the user’s account shall be considered done by the user.
