There are many different ways you can use our services – to search for and share information on various products and services. When you share information with us, for example by creating a @Market Account, we can make those services even better – to show you more relevant search results and advertisements, to help you connect with vendors and customers. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.
Your privacy matters to @Market so whether you are new to @Market or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices – and if you have any questions contact us.
Information we collect
We collect information to provide better services to all of our users. We collect information in two ways:
We may collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number). @Market may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your @Market Account.
When you use our services or view content provided by @Market, we may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This may include:
When you use a location-enabled @Market service, we may collect and process information about your actual location, like GPS signals sent by a mobile device. We may also use various technologies to determine location, such as sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby vendors.
We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
How we use information we collect
We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect @Market and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant search results.
When you contact @Market, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. For example, by saving your language preferences, we’ll be able to have our services appear in the language you prefer.
@Market processes personal information on servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.
Transparency and choice
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used.
You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.
Information you share
Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines, including @Market. Our services provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content.
Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes).
Information we share
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of @Market unless one of the following circumstances apply:
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of @Market when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
If your @Market Account is managed for you by a domain administrator (for example, for @Market Apps users) then your domain administrator and resellers who provide user support to your organization will have access to your @Market Account information (including your email and other data). Your domain administrator may be able to:
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of @Market if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.
We work hard to protect @Market and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:
