‘Nonpersonal Data’ (NPD) is information that is in no way personally identifiable. ‘Personal Data’ (PD) means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. PD is in many ways the same as Personally Identifiable Information (PII). However, PD is broader in scope and covers more data.
A “Member” or “User” is someone who has registered to download our mobile app and use our services or buy our products.

Our Legal Basis for Collecting and Processing Your Information
Our legal basis for collecting and processing your Personal Data (PD) is based on and the necessity for the performance of a contract, or, to take steps to enter into a contract or to satisfy a legitimate interest of our company in a manner that does not outweigh your freedoms and rights.

We use all this information to analyze trends among our users to help improve our mobile app.

Collecting Your Location Information
When you use our services, we may collect and publish information about your actual physical location to show you products that are offered by other users close to you. We also use geolocation tracking to determine your location when you post your ads so other users can see your location. We may use several technologies like GPS and IP tracking to determine your location. These technologies may also provide us with information about nearby cell towers, Wi-Fi access points, and other devices.
Also, to provide our services we may require gaining access to your mobile phone camera for us to upload pictures or videos stored in your phone to be used in your advertisements. You have the ability to deny or allow our location services and access to your mobile phone camera that collect such information. However, denying our information gathering practices may affect your ability to use our services and post your products for sale.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies collect information about the use of the mobile app, such as pages visited, traffic sources, user’s interests, content management, and other measurements.
These cookies enable the mobile app to remember a user’s choices – such as their language, user name, and other personal choices while using the mobile app. They can also be used to deliver services, such as letting a user make a blog post, listen to audio, or watch videos while using the mobile app.
These cookies can be used to improve a mobile app’s performance and provide special features and content. They can be placed by third parties who provide services to us or by our company.
Advertising or Targeting Cookies
These cookies are usually placed and used by advertising companies to develop a profile of your browsing interests and serve advertisements to you that are related to your interests. You will see less advertising if you disable these cookies.
These cookies allow mobile apps to link the actions of a user during a browser session. They may be used for a variety of purposes, such as remembering what a user has put in their shopping cart as they use a mobile app. Session cookies also permit users to be recognized as they navigate a mobile app so that any item or page changes they make are remembered from page to page. Session cookies expire after a browser session; thus, they are not stored long term.
These cookies are stored on a user’s device in between browser sessions, which allows the user’s preferences or actions across a website (or, in some cases, across different websites) to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes, including remembering user’s choices and preferences when using a mobile app or to target advertising to them.

Google Analytics Privacy Notice
We use Google’s Firebase Analytics to collect information about the use of our mobile app. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users use our mobile app, what pages they visit, and what other websites they have visited prior to coming to our mobile app. We use the information we get from Google Analytics to improve our mobile app. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit our mobile app, not your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected using Google Analytics with PD. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit our site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. You can prevent Google Analytics from using your information by opting out at this link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Why am I seeing ads by Google for products I’ve viewed?
Our mobile app uses a remarketing advertising service. Our remarketing service is provided by Google and other companies that show our ads on websites and mobile apps. With remarketing you may see ads for our products you have previously looked at. As an example, suppose you visit a website that sells computers, but you do not buy a computer on your first visit to that website. The website’s owner might like to encourage you to revisit his/her site and buy a computer by showing you his/her ads again on other websites that you visit. We use remarketing for similar purposes, so you may see advertisements for our products as you search the Internet. For this to happen Google or other remarketing providers will read a cookie that is already in your browser, or they place a cookie in your browser when you visit our site or other sites using remarketing. (This can only happen if your browser is set to let it happen).
Our mobile app uses Facebook’s remarketing advertising service. With remarketing, you may see ads for our products which you have previously looked at when you use Facebook. For this to happen Facebook uses a Custom Audience Pixel that is activated when a visitor lands on a webpage and a unique “cookie” is placed in their browser. To opt out of Facebook remarketing visit: https://www.facebook.com/help/568137493302217

Our Security Policy
We have built our mobile app using industry-standard security measures and authentication tools to protect the security of your PD.

When we collect your credit card information through our mobile app, we will encrypt it before it travels over the Internet using industry-standard technology for conducting secure online transactions.

However, you understand and agree that we are in no way responsible for any misuse of your credit card number.
