3. Information we collect
We gather and retain the personal data you give us when you use our site. Our main objective is to offer a secure, effective, effortless, and personalised experience. As a result, we can offer services and features that will most likely satisfy your needs and tailor our website to make using it safer and simpler for you. It’s important to note that we only gather the personal data about you that we believe is required to fulfil this goal. Generally speaking, you are free to browse the Site without identifying yourself to us or disclosing any personal information about yourself. You are no longer anonymous to us after you provide us your personal information. You can always refuse to give information by deciding not to utilise a certain service or feature.
Based on how you use our site, we might track specific information about you automatically. To better understand, safeguard, and serve our users, we conduct internal research using this data on the demographics, interests, and activity of our users. This data is gathered and examined on an aggregate level. This information might include your IP address, the URL you just left (whether or not it was on our site), the URL you go to next (whether or not it was on our site), and the URL you just came from.
On some sections of the Site, we employ data collecting tools like “cookies” to monitor user behaviour, track the success of our promotions, and advance trust and safety. Cookies are little files that are downloaded to your computer’s hard drive and help us provide our services. We provide some features that can only be accessed by using a “cookie.” Also, we employ cookies so that you have to input your password less frequently while logged in. Also, cookies might assist us in delivering content that is customised to your interests. The majority of cookies are “session cookies,” which means that they are removed from your hard drive at the conclusion of a session. If your browser allows, you can always choose to reject our cookies, albeit doing so may prevent you from using some features of the Site and force you to input your password more frequently when logged in.
We will get that information if you choose to post messages on our forum or leave reviews for other users. As allowed by law, we keep your information as long as it’s required to resolve disputes, offer customer assistance, and troubleshoot issues. We may compile information about you into a file if you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us contact regarding your activities or postings on the Site.
4. Our use of your information

We use your personal information and other data we gather about you from your use of the Site both now and in the past to: settle disputes; troubleshoot issues; encourage safe trading; collect fees owed; gauge consumer interest in the services we offer; personalise your experience; find and stop errors, fraud, and other illegal activity; enforce our User Agreement; and share information with third parties. Sometimes, in order to detect issues or settle disputes, we may evaluate data from many users. In particular, we may look at your personal information to identify users who may be using multiple User IDs or aliases. Your personal information may be compared and reviewed for inaccuracies, omissions, and accuracy.
