Information You Share on Site
Your username is displayed throughout Site (and so available to the public) and is connected to all your Site activity. Other people can see your items for sale, storefronts, Feedback, ratings, and associated comments. Notices sent to other community members about suspicious activity and policy violations on our sites refer to usernames and specific items. So, if you associate your name with your username, the people to whom you have revealed your name will be able to personally identify your Site activities.
If you access our sites from a shared computer or a computer in an internet cafe, certain information about you, such as your username, activity, or reminders from Site, may also be visible to other individuals who use the computer after you.
If you use a message board, blog, or chat room on Site, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there may be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.
Using Information from Site
Site enables you to share financial and Personal Information (such as the name of your in-game character) to complete transactions and collect payments. We encourage you to disclose your privacy practices and respect the privacy of other users. We cannot guarantee the privacy or security of your information and therefore we encourage you to evaluate the privacy and security policies of your trading partner before entering a transaction and choosing to share your information. To help protect your privacy, we allow only limited access to other users’ contact, shipping, and financial information to facilitate your transactions and collect payments. When users are involved in a transaction, they may have access to each other’s name, user ID, email address and other contact and shipping information. In all cases, you must give other users a chance to remove themselves from your database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them

In addition, if you do not want to associate your anonymous cookie information with your visits to pages containing web beacons, depending on the browser used, you can set your browser to turn off cookies.
Keep in mind that if you decline cookies or other similar technologies, you may not be able to take advantage of certain Site features, services, applications, or tools.

No Spam, Spyware, Phishing, or Spoofing
We do not tolerate spam. You are not licensed to contact other Site users or add them to a mail list (email or physical) without their express consent. In addition, you may not use our communication tools to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate our User Agreement. We may automatically scan and/or manually filter messages to check for spam, viruses, phishing attacks, and other malicious activity or illegal or prohibited content. To report Site related spam or spoof emails, please contact us at email@example.com.
Site may, but is not obligated, to send you strictly service-related announcements on occasions when it is necessary to do so. For example, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications since they are not promotional in nature and are necessary to maintain the quality of our service. If you do not wish to receive them, you may have the option to deactivate your account.
Account Protection and Security
Your information is stored on our servers. We protect your information using technical and administrative security measures to reduce the risks of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, and alteration. Some of the safeguards we use include firewalls, data encryption, and information access authorization controls. However, it is possible that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse the personal information that they collect from the Site. Therefore, although Site works very hard to protect your privacy, we do not guarantee, and you should not expect, that your Personal Information or private communications will always remain private.
Data Breach Response. If ever an unauthorized person or entity obtains access to any of our users' personal Information, Site will notify all affected users and relevant government authorities within 72 hours after having become aware of such a breach.
Your password is the key to your account. Use unique numbers, letters, and special characters and do not disclose your Site password to anyone. If you do share your password or your Personal Information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken and financial commitments made in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your Personal Information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify Site and change your password.
Upon your request, we will close your account and remove your Personal Information from view as soon as reasonably possible, based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We do retain Personal Information from closed accounts to comply with state and federal laws, deter fraud, collect any outstanding debts, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with investigations, enforce our User Agreement and Policies, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law. Over time, Site may no longer have an ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information. At that time, we will either delete your personal information or anonymize it.
Accessing, Reviewing and Changing Your Personal Information
We take steps to ensure that the Personal Information we collect is accurate and up to date, and we provide you with the opportunity to update your information through your account profile settings.

Site will protect your Personal Information in accordance with the federal laws of Canada as well as the provincial laws of Ontario.
