COOKIE POLICY

I. OUR COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We collect personal information in a variety of ways. For example, you may provide us with your personal information when you make a purchase, list an item for sale, send us messages, subscribe to our mailing lists, newsletters or other forms of marketing communications, or use some other feature of our Services.

We may link or combine information collected from you on our Sites and Apps with information we have collected from you offline (e.g., in-person), information we receive from third parties, as well as information we collect automatically through tracking technologies (defined below). This allows us to, for example, provide you with a personalized experience regardless of how you interact with us.

The personal information we collect, the way we collect it, and how we use it will depend on how you are interacting with us and the type of services you use.

Personal Information Collected from You

  • Account Information, including name, email address, phone number, username and password, location, profile information, and any other information you provide to us. We use this information to administer your account, provide you with the relevant service and information, communicate with you regarding your account and your use of the Services, and for fraud prevention and customer support purposes. Please note that other users may see your username and/or location (if you enable location services and grant permission) on the Services.

  • Buyer Information, including name, email address, shipping and billing address, and payment card and billing information, if you choose to make a purchase. Please note that we use third-party payment processors to process credit card payments made to us. As such, we do not retain any personally identifiable financial information in connection with credit card payments, such as credit card numbers. Rather, all such information is provided directly by you to our third-party payment processor. The payment processor’s use of your personal information is governed by their privacy policy.

  • Seller Information, including name, email address, shipping and billing address, bank information and payment card and billing information, if you choose to list an item for sale on one of our platforms. Please note that we use third-party payment processors to process credit card payments made to us. As such, we do not retain any personally identifiable financial information in connection with credit card payments, such as credit card numbers. Rather, all such information is provided directly by you to our third-party payment processor and may be kept on file with such third-party payment processor to cover certain applicable charges incurred by a seller. The payment processor’s use of your personal information is governed by their privacy policy.

  • Identity and Compliance Information, including name, birthdate, address, phone number, email address, bank account information, government ID number, VAT ID number or other tax ID number, and copies of government ID or tax documents, along with a selfie image. We may use data collection and verification services provided by a third-party provider, Persona, to collect and verify such information in order to comply with our legal obligations and protect against fraud and abuse. Persona may use a combination of machine-learning tools and optical scans to verify your identity document and may use facial recognition technology to produce a unique biometric identifier based on facial geometry that can be used to compare your selfie to the image on the identity document you provide to determine the likelihood that the images are a "match." We do not receive the biometric identifier generated from the images. It is generated and held by Persona until we inform them that the biometric identifier is no longer needed for the purposes described in this paragraph and must be destroyed. For identity verification and security purposes, we will have access to the selfie image and will receive the information extracted from the scan of the government ID document as well as the results of the verification process. We may use this process and associated information to verify your identity and your identity documents, comply with legal obligations and protect against fraud and abuse. We do not use, disclose or retain your biometric information for any other commercial purpose. Our third-party provider, Persona, processes this information on our behalf strictly in accordance with our contractual agreements. For more information on Persona’s data processing practices, please see Persona’s Privacy Policy.

  • User Generated Content, including content that you create, such as posts and/or comments, messages that you send and receive (including their content) and the metadata about content and messages.

  • Inquiry and Communications Information, including any information you submit to us through a “Submit Request” customer support form, such as contact information and any other information you provide in the request, information provided in chat messages, to one of our email addresses, in-person, or via phone. We use this information to investigate and respond to your inquiries, to communicate with you, to enhance the services we offer to our users and to manage and grow our organization.

  • Newsletter and Marketing Emails Information, including email address and applicable interests and communication preferences. We use this information to manage our communications with you and send you information about products and services we think may be of interest to you. If you wish to stop receiving emails from us, simply click “unsubscribe” at the bottom of the email. Note that you cannot unsubscribe from certain services-related emails (e.g., account verification, confirmations of transactions, technical or legal notices).

Personal Information from Third Parties

We may also combine the information we receive from you with personal information we obtain from third parties. We may receive the same categories of personal information as described above from the following third parties:

  • Social Media. When an individual interacts with our Services through various social media platforms, such as when someone logs in through a social media platform, links their social media account, provides us with their social media handle, “Likes” us on a social media platform or follows us or shares our content on Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or other social media platform, we may receive some information about individuals that they permit such social media platform to share with third parties. The data we receive is dependent upon an individual’s privacy settings with the social media platform. Individuals should always review and, if necessary, adjust their privacy settings on third-party websites and social media platforms and services before sharing information and/or linking or connecting them to other services.

  • Service Providers. Our service providers that perform services solely on our behalf, such as payment processors, fraud prevention vendors, verification vendors, website hosting providers, or certain survey and advertising/marketing providers, collect personal information and may share some or all of this information with us.

  • Other Sources. We may also collect personal information about individuals that we do not otherwise have from, for example, publicly available sources, third-party data providers, our affiliated companies, brand partnerships, or through transactions such as mergers and acquisitions.

Personal Information Collected at Our In-Person Locations

When you visit one of our in-person locations, we may collect the following information from or about you:

  • Contact Information. When you visit one of our in-person locations, we may collect your name, email address and/or phone number so that we can send you promotional offers or other marketing materials. We may also give you the opportunity to answer survey questions about your experience.

We may collect information about your in-store transaction such as items purchased or dropped off, date and time of your transaction, amount purchased, and payment information, such as your credit/debit card (through our payment processor) or gift card details, when you make an in-store purchase.

  • In-store Location and Movement Information. In some locations, we may work with third-party providers that collect location and movement data from your mobile device when you’re using a mobile app configured for this purpose. We may receive aggregated information about visitors to our stores and may use this data to analyze foot traffic patterns and measure the effectiveness of our marketing and promotional campaigns. See Control Over Your Information to learn how you may adjust location data collection through your mobile device.

  • In-store Wi-Fi. In some locations, we may offer free Wi-Fi services to our guests. Our Wi-Fi network providers may capture certain data from devices you connect to it, such as a unique device identifier. We may also enable Bluetooth or other technologies in our stores which enable us to detect the presence of your device in our stores or provide operational insights.

  • In-store Video or Images. In some locations, we use CCTV cameras in our stores for security, fraud, incident reporting and loss-prevention purposes, or to collect analytics, improve operations and other purposes.

Personal Information Automatically Collected

As is true of many digital properties, we and our third-party partners may automatically collect certain information from or in connection with your device when visiting or interacting with our Services, as described in the list below:

  • Log data, including internet protocol (IP) address, operating system, device type and version, unique device identifier, browser type and version, browser ID, the URL entered and the referring page/campaign, date and time of visit, other user agent string data, the time spent on our Services, and any errors that may occur during the visit to our Services.

  • Location data, such as general location information we derive from your IP address. We and our third-party partners may use cookies or small data files that are stored on an individual’s computer and other, related technologies, such as web beacons, pixels, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies and logging technologies (collectively, “cookies”) to automatically collect this information. We may also use this information to distinguish you from other users of our Services. This helps us monitor and analyze how you use and interact with our Services. It also helps us and our partners to determine products and services that may be of interest to you.

For more information about these practices and your choices regarding cookies, please see the Cookie Policy.

Additional Uses of Personal Information

Where you choose to contact us, we may need additional information to fulfill the request or respond to inquiries. We may provide you with additional privacy-related information where the scope of the inquiry or request and/or personal information we require fall outside the scope of this Privacy Policy. In that case, the additional privacy-related information will govern how we may process the information provided at that time.

Through the provision of our Services, we may process deidentified information that cannot reasonably be used to infer information about, or otherwise be linked to, a particular consumer or household. We will maintain and use such information in deidentified form and will not attempt to reidentify the information, except in instances where necessary for determining whether the deidentification process used satisfies the requirements under applicable law.

We may also aggregate data for reporting, analytics, and other business reasons, including to promote or describe the use of our Services.

II. DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

As part of our Services, we may also share, transmit, disclose, grant access to, make available, and provide personal information with and to third parties, as follows:

  • Third-Party Referral Partners. We may work with third-party referral partners. If you visit the Site by linking directly from a third-party website, we may provide the third party with select information about your individual transaction that you made after being referred. To track and credit your transaction, the third-party website may give you a unique code, cookie or graphic which will uniquely identify you. The presence of a third-party navigation bar at the top of any page on any website is an indication that the third-party website may have access to information about your activity on such website.

  • Online Advertising Partners. We may also share personal information with advertising networks or permit these partners to collect information from you directly on our Sites to facilitate online advertising, such as search engines and social network advertising providers to serve targeted ads to you or to groups of other users who share similar traits, such as likely commercial interests and demographics, on third-party platforms. For more information, including how to opt out of interest-based advertising, please see the Cookie Policy.

III. CONTROL OVER YOUR INFORMATION

You may control your information in the following ways:

  • Account and Profile Information and Settings. If you have created an account, you may review, update, correct or delete certain information in your profile within the Apps or Sites (as applicable). If you would like us to delete your record in our system, please contact us at [email protected] with a request that we delete your personal information from our database. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.

You can unsubscribe from text messages at any time by replying STOP or clicking the unsubscribe link (where available) in one of our messages. For more information, please see our Terms of Use.

IV. DATA RETENTION

We will usually store the personal information we collect about you for no longer than necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, and in accordance with our legitimate business interests and applicable law. However, if necessary, we may retain personal information for longer periods of time, until set retention periods and deadlines expire, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, tax and accounting requirements set by a legislature, regulator or other government authority.

To determine the appropriate duration of the retention of personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of personal information and if we can attain our objectives by other means, as well as our legal, regulatory, tax, accounting and other applicable obligations.

For example, if you reside in the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom or the State of California, your personal information may be subject to certain laws and regulations that define the criteria used to determine the period for which personal information about you will be retained, which varies depending on the legal basis under which we process the personal information:

  • Contract. Where we are processing personal information is based on contract, we generally will retain your personal information for the duration of the contract plus some additional limited period of time that is necessary to comply with law or that represents the statute of limitations for legal claims that could arise from our contractual relationship.

  • Legitimate Interests. Where we are processing personal information based on our legitimate interests, we generally will retain such information for a reasonable period of time based on the particular interest, taking into account your fundamental interests and your rights and freedoms.

  • Consent. Where we are processing personal information based on your consent, we generally will retain your personal information until you withdraw your consent, or otherwise for the period of time necessary to fulfill the underlying agreement with you or provide you with the applicable service for which we process that personal information.

  • Legal Obligation. Where we are processing personal information based on a legal obligation, we generally will retain your personal information for the time necessary to fulfill the legal obligation.

  • Legal Claim. We may need to apply a “legal hold” that retains information beyond our typical retention period where we face threat of legal claim or intent to establish a claim. In that case, we will retain the information until the hold is removed, which typically means the claim or threat of claim has been resolved.

When an individual discontinues the use of our Services, we will retain their personal information for as long as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes and defend claims, as well as, for any additional purpose based on the choices they have made, such as to receive marketing communications. We will retain personal information supplied when joining our Services, including complaints, claims and any other personal information supplied during the duration of an individual’s contract with us for the Services until the statutory limitation periods have expired, when this is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

Once retention of the personal information is no longer necessary for the purposes outlined above, we will either delete or deidentify the personal information or, if this is not possible (e.g., because personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store the personal information and isolate it from further processing until deletion or deidentification is possible.

V. CHILDREN’S PERSONAL INFORMATION

Our Services are not directed to, and we do not intend to, or knowingly, collect or solicit personal information from children under the age of 16. If an individual is under the age of 16, they should not use our Services or otherwise provide us with any personal information either directly or by other means. If a child under the age of 16 has provided personal information to us, we encourage the child’s parent or guardian to contact us to request that we remove the personal information from our systems. If we learn that any personal information we collect has been provided by a child under the age of 16, we will promptly delete that personal information.

Our Services may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Except where we post, link to or expressly adopt or refer to this Privacy Policy, this Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, any personal information practices of third-party websites and online services or the practices of other third parties. To learn about the personal information practices of third parties, please visit their respective privacy policies.

VII. UPDATES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will change the date at the beginning of this Privacy Policy. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify individuals by email to their registered email address, by prominent posting on our Services, or through other appropriate communication channels. All changes shall be effective from the date of publication unless otherwise provided.

Exercise Your Right to Opt-Out of Personal Information Sales or Sharing for Targeted Advertising

We do not “sell” personal information as most people would typically understand that term (i.e., we do not share your information in exchange for money), but certain uses may be deemed the “sale” of personal information under applicable privacy laws. Unless you have exercised your Right to Opt-Out, we may disclose or “sell” your personal information to third parties for non-monetary consideration, or “share” your personal information to third parties for cross-context behavioral advertising purposes. The third parties to whom we sell or share personal information may use such information for their own purposes in accordance with their own privacy policies.

You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your Right to Opt-Out. However, we may ask you to provide additional personal information so that we can properly identify you to track compliance with your opt-out request. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request. If you choose not to provide this information, we may only be able to process your request to the extent we are able to identify you in our data systems.

To exercise the Right to Opt-Out, you may submit a request by:

To opt out of such sharing, please email [email protected].

Authorized Agents

In certain circumstances, you are permitted to use an authorized agent (as that term is defined by the applicable privacy law) to submit requests on your behalf through the designated methods set forth in these U.S. Disclosures where we can verify the authorized agent’s authority to act on your behalf.

Where necessary to make such transfers, we will comply with our legal and regulatory obligations in relation to the personal information.

Your Legal Rights. Subject to certain exemptions, as permitted by law, you have the following rights in relation to the personal information we hold about you:

  • Right of Access. You have the right to access the personal information we hold about you and to receive a general account of our uses of that personal information. Upon receipt of a written request from you, we will provide you with a copy of your personal information, although in certain limited circumstances, we may not be able to make all relevant personal information available to you, for example, where that personal information also relates to another individual. In such circumstances, we will, upon request, provide you with the reasons for such refusal. We will endeavour to deal with all requests for access of personal information in a timely manner.

We will endeavour to deal with all requests for rectification of personal information in a timely manner.

  • Right to Erasure. You can ask us to delete or remove your personal information in some circumstances such as where we no longer need your information to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, or if you withdraw your consent (where applicable because your consent was the legal basis on which we were processing your personal information). If you are entitled to erasure and if we have shared your personal information with others, we will take reasonable steps to inform those others where possible and where this would not involve disproportionate effort.

  • Right to Personal Information Portability. You may have the right, in certain circumstances, to obtain personal information you have provided us with (in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format) and to reuse it elsewhere or to ask us to transfer this to a third party of your choice.

However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdrew your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

We may require payment of a non-excessive fee to defray our expenses in this regard. Please allow us a reasonable amount of time to respond to your inquiries and requests.

Personal data retention

We will retain the personal data processed pursuant to the DPF in a form that identifies you pursuant to the retention policy described above. We may continue processing such personal data for longer periods, but only for the time and to the extent such processing reasonably serves the purposes of archiving in the public interest, journalism, literature and art, scientific or historical research and statistical analysis, and subject to the protection of our privacy disclosures. After such time periods have expired, we may either delete your personal data or retain it in a form such that it does not identify you personally.

  • Social Media Widgets. Our Services may include social media features, such as the ability to share content on Instagram or Twitter or other widgets. These social media companies may recognize you and collect information about your visit to our Services, and they may set a cookie or employ other tracking technologies. Your interactions with those features are governed by the privacy policies of those companies.

  • Social Media Platforms. We may display targeted advertising to you through social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. These companies have interest-based advertising programs that allow us to direct advertisements to users who have shown interest in our services while those users are on the social media platform, or to groups of other users who share similar traits, such as likely commercial interests and demographics. We may share a unique identifier, such as a user ID, with these platform providers or they may collect information from our Site visitors through a first-party pixel, to direct targeted advertising to you or to a custom audience on the social media platform. These advertisements are governed by the privacy policies of those social media companies that provide them. If you do not want to receive targeted ads on your social networks, you may be able to adjust your advertising preferences through your settings on those networks.

  • Third-Party Partners. We work with a variety of third-party partners to provide analytics and advertising services. For example, we use Google Analytics to recognize you and link the devices you use when you visit our Services on your browser or mobile device, log in to your account on our Services, or otherwise engage with us. We share a unique identifier, like a user ID, with Google to facilitate the service. Google Analytics allows us to better understand how our users interact with our Services and to tailor our advertisements and content accordingly. For information on how Google Analytics collects and processes data, as well as how you can control information sent to Google, review Google's website, “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps” located here.

We may also utilize certain forms of display advertising and other advanced features through Google Analytics. These features enable us to use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick advertising cookie) or other third-party cookies together to inform, optimize, and display ads based on your past visits to the Services. You may control your advertising preferences or opt out of certain Google advertising products by visiting the Google Ads Preferences Manager, currently available here, or by visiting NAI’s online resources here.
