Contact information provided by a Buyer to ecomdash in connection with problems, comments or requests about our Site or the Services is used only to respond to those problems, comments or requests and may be provided to ecomdash Clients or third parties as necessary to respond to the comment, problem or request.
Marketing/Special Offers/Solicitation from Ecomdash. Ecomdash may use a Buyer’s information to provide updates and other business purposes related to making available the features and functions of the Services. Ecomdash also may use information a Buyer provides to make a Buyer aware of new products or special offers or promotions. Ecomdash will abide by requests from you to discontinue such use. As a Buyer, if you receive communications directly from an ecomdash Client, you should contact the ecomdash Client directly concerning such communications and review their privacy policies. A Buyer will receive such information as described in this Section unless a Buyer has opted out of receiving such information from ecomdash as part of the checkout process. Outside of the checkout process, Buyers may also opt out of receiving such information (if you have not already opted out of receiving it) by sending a request as described below in “Your Choices; Access to, Review of and Modifications to Your Personally Identifiable Information”.
Providing Ecomdash Buyer Information to Third Parties for Marketing/Solicitation (for ecomdash Buyers only). If you are a Buyer, ecomdash does not sell your personally identifiable information to third parties for purposes of marketing or soliciting you, provided however, we may share personally identifiable information, including credit or debit account information, with a third party upon your prior consent (opt-out). To the extent that ecomdash Clients (for example, a seller of an item you purchased) have access to your personally identifiable information as a result of your bidding or buying, where ecomdash provides your information to ecomdash Clients as part of a transaction you may be involved in with such ecomdash Client, these entities may solicit or market to you in accordance with their policies. As a Buyer, you are encouraged to review the privacy policies of the ecomdash Clients that provide the products or services related to your bid or purchase. You should contact ecomdash Clients directly and review their privacy policies should you have questions concerning their use of your personally identifiable information such as, for example, communications you may or may not wish to receive.
Providing Ecomdash Client Information to Third Parties for Marketing/Solicitation (for ecomdash Clients only). If you are an ecomdash Client, ecomdash may provide certain of your registration information to third parties for use in marketing and in designing or providing their own services, to send you information about its products and to notify you if you win a contest. As an ecomdash Client, you may opt-out of ecomdash providing such information to third parties at any time by updating your Personal Account Settings or by contacting ecomdash. You should contact the third party directly who may already be sending you messages in order to request these communications stop, and to review their privacy policies.
Bidding, Buying, Selling History. Ecomdash may use any information collected related to a Buyer or ecomdash Client’s bidding, buying or selling history to generate recommendations and predictions related to likelihood of your willingness to complete a bid and may submit such history and recommendations to ecomdash Clients.
YOUR CHOICES; ACCESS TO, REVIEW OF AND MODIFICATIONS TO YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
