  1. We collect certain personal information about visitors and users of our Sites.
  2. The most common types of information we collect include things like: usernames, names, email addresses, address, phone number, IP addresses, other contact details, survey responses, blogs, payment information such as payment agent details, transactional details, tax information, support queries, forum comments, content you direct us to make available on our Sites (such as item descriptions) and web analytics data. We will also collect personal information from job applications (such as, your CV, the application form itself, cover letter and interview notes).

How we collect personal information

  1. We collect personal information directly when you provide it to us, automatically as you navigate through the Sites, or through other people when you use services associated with the Sites.
  2. We collect your personal information when you provide it to us when you complete a form and buy or provide items or services on our Sites, subscribe to a newsletter, email list, submit feedback, enter a contest, fill out a survey, or send us a communication.

Personal information we collect about you from third parties

  1. Although we generally collect personal information directly from you, on occasion, we also collect certain categories of personal information about you from other sources. In particular:
    1. Third party service providers (like Google, Facebook, Instagram, Mailchimp…) which may provide information about you when you link, connect, or login to your account with the third party provider and they send us information such as location, interest, age, IP address, this only occurs if you are using this provider and they have been authorized by you via your privacy settings at that service provider. The use of User Content and other information provided by You to such third parties is governed by their privacy policies, not our Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for such third party privacy policies or their compliance with such policies.
    2. Other third party sources/and or partners with your consent; and
    3. we may allow third-party ad servers or ad networks to serve advertisements and/or collect information on the Service. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear on our site. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or web beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content. We do not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks us to show an advertisement to a certain audience and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach. In addition, third-party advertisers may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements on the Service, other websites and other forms of media about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here. Our Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, third-party advertisers. Please consult the respective privacy policies of such advertisers for more information.
