If you post any comments to any of the public areas of the eOfferUp channels such as eOfferUp’s Facebook page or eOfferUp’s Twitter account, your comments can be read or used by others and any PII that you post in such public areas could be used by others to contact you or for other purposes. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose any information in these public areas. eOfferUp is not responsible for any PII you choose to submit through the public areas of the eOfferUp Channels, third party websites or social networking services.

What is PII?
Information you provide in connection with your purchase of or subscription to eOfferUp Services including your name, mailing and/or shipping address (when combined with your name), telephone number, email address, and credit card number.
Transaction and activity information about your eOfferUp Services; your customer account and billing records; your interactions with our customer service and/or technical support representatives over the telephone, email or through online chat.
How eOfferUp protects the Security of PII?
eOfferUp has implemented an information security program that contains administrative, technical and physical controls that are designed to safeguard your PII and non-personally identifiable information. We use industry standards to secure PII when it is being collected and transmitted over the Internet as well as firewalls, security monitoring, encryption and intrusion detection software. Although we cannot guarantee that our information security program will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use or disclose your PII, we maintain security and incident response practices to handle incidents involving unauthorized access, use or disclosure of your PII.
Under our practices and policies, access to PII is authorized only for eOfferUp employees and contractors who have a business need for such access, and records are retained in accordance with applicable laws and then securely destroyed. eOfferUp employees and contractors are trained on the importance of protecting privacy and on the proper access to, use of and disclosure of PII.
As an extra precaution, you should not share your password with anyone. eOfferUp will only ask you for your password as part of a customer service or technical support call or online chat, and only in cases where you request customer support to access your account information or you request customer service or technical support in connection with the eOfferUp Services.
Sharing of PII in Limited Circumstances
When eOfferUp uses third parties to perform business functions on our behalf, we require them through contracts to treat your PII confidentially and to only use your PII for the express purpose of providing the specific business functions for eOfferUp. Examples of such third parties include, but are not limited to: (i) merchant banks for credit card authorizations, (ii) collection agencies, (iii) customer service companies, and (iv) market research companies.
Some eOfferUp Services are offered to eOfferUp customers in conjunction with a third-party vendor. To provide these services, the vendor may need to collect and retain your PII but the vendor will be required by contract with eOfferUp to maintain the confidentiality of your PII.
If ownership of eOfferUp changes, including as a result of a merger, acquisition, or the sale of its assets, your PII may be transferred or assigned as part of the transferred assets. If such a transfer results in a material change in the use of your PII, we will notify you about the material change.
