to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content
and product offerings and to customize our site's content
and layout. We believe these uses allow us to improve our
site and better tailor it to meet our users' needs.

targeted to your interests, such as targeted banners and
promotions. We use your email address and, in rare
situations your mailing address or phone number, to contact
you regarding administrative notices from time to time.
We use information in the file we maintain about you, and
other information we obtain from your current and past
activities on the site, to resolve disputes, troubleshoot
problems and enforce our User Agreement. At times, we may
look across multiple users to identify problems or resolve
disputes, and in particular on rare occasions we may

disclose such information in aggregate to advertisers and
for other marketing and promotional purposes. However, in
these situations, we do not disclose to these entities any
information that could be used to personally identify you.
Certain information, such as your password, credit card
number, and bank account number, are not disclosed in
aggregate at all.
Throughout the site, you are
identified by your User ID. Unless you select a
unique User ID, our system automatically sets your User ID
as your email address. In this situation, where you are identified on the
site by your User ID, you 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 activities on the site. Even if
your User ID is not your email
address, your User ID can be used to identify your activities throughout
the site. Other people can see your bids, your feedback
rating and associated comments, your postings on the site, and so
