- Our Disclosure of Your Information.
Due to the
existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of your
private communications and other personally identifiable information
will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy
Policy. By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), we may be
forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under
certain circumstances, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access
transmissions or private communications, or users may abuse or misuse
your information that they collect from our Site. Therefore, although we
use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not
promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable
information or private communications will always remain private.
As a matter of policy, we do not sell or rent any personally
identifiable information about you to any third party. However, the
following describes some of the ways that your personally identifiable
information may be disclosed.
Throughout the Site, you are
identified by your User ID. If you select your email address as your
User ID you will disclose your email address to other users and third
parties. As a result, other users and third parties might send you
unsolicited email and be able to personally identify all of your public
activities on the Site. Others may illegally attempt to automatically collect
your email address from our site. Your
User ID can be used to identify you and your activities throughout the
Site. Other people can see your bids, items that you have purchased in
the past, your feedback rating and associated comments, your postings on
the Site, and so on. We also provide a number of ways to allow other
users to find out more about you and your site activities, such as our
feature that allows users to quickly see all of the items you are
offering at the time. If you are involved in a transaction, we have a
feature that allows other users to view your email address..
Legal Requests. Naughtybids cooperates with law
enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties to enforce laws. We can
(and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law
enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion,
believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of
fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is
illegal or may expose us or you to legal liability. Further, we can (and
you authorize us to) disclose your User ID, name, street address, city,
state, zip code, country, phone number, email, and company name to Naughtybids
participants as we in our sole discretion believe necessary
or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud,
intellectual property infringement, piracy, or other unlawful activity.
- Your Use of Other Users' Information.
to facilitate interaction among all Naughtybids community members, our service
allows you limited access other users' contact information. As a seller
you have access to the User ID and email address
information of the buyer or winning bidder(s), and as a buyer or winning
bidder you have access to the User ID and email address and other contact
information of the seller.
You agree that, with respect to
other users' personally identifiable information that you obtain through
the Site or through an Naughtybids-related communication or Naughtybids-facilitated
transaction, Naughtybids hereby grants to you a license to use such information
only for: (a) Naughtybids-related communications that are not unsolicited
commercial messages, (b) using services offered through Naughtybids (e.g.
escrow, insurance, shipping and fraud complaints), and (c) any other
purpose that such user expressly agrees to after adequate disclosure of
the purpose(s). In all cases, you must give users an opportunity to
remove themselves from your database and a chance to review what
information you have collected about them. In addition, under no
circumstances, except as defined in this Section, can you disclose
personally identifiable information about another user to any third
party without our consent and the consent of such other user after
adequate disclosure. Note that law enforcement personnel and other
rights holders are given different rights with
respect to information they access.
Naughtybids and our users do not tolerate spam. Therefore, without limiting
the foregoing, you are not licensed to add an Naughtybids user, even a user who
has purchased an item from you, to your mail list (email or physical
mail) without their express consent after adequate disclosure. To report
Naughtybids related spam to Naughtybids, please send an email to email@example.com.
