5. Who Will See My Personal Information?

Our number one priority is to keep your personal information private and confidential. Except as set forth herein we will not willfully disclose your personal information to third parties. And we will not rent or sell your personal information to anyone. However, certain personal information will be made available to others in the process of using our Site. This information includes:

  • Other visitors to our Site may view your user ID, rating, city, and other items you have listed for sale, purchased or reviewed.
  • In order to complete the transaction, the buyer and seller are provided with each other’s email and postal address.

When making an offer, the seller can view your user ID, rating and your city. The profile you create on our site will be publically accessible unless otherwise indicated. You may change the privacy settings of your transaction history through your account portal. For more information, visit http://www.ioffer.com/entries/show/20233861

Of course once you provide personal information to a buyer or seller on our Site, iOffer has no control over how that information is used by that individual. You should discuss any privacy concerns you may have with any individual you meet through our Site, as the only protection you will have is whatever terms you agree to directly with this individual.

In addition, we provide some of our services through contractual arrangements with affiliates, services providers, partners and other third parties (collectively "service partners"). Our service partners may use your personal information to operate our sites and to deliver their services. For example, your data may be transferred to website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in designing and operating the website, executing services or helping us analyze collected data, and by submitting your information, you authorize this transfer. These parties will only use your data for the purpose of carrying out the work as agreed with us and they will be required to keep the information confidential. We will encourage our service partners to adopt and post privacy policies. However, the use of your personal information by our service partners is governed by the privacy policies of those service partners and is not subject to our control.

iOffer will also disclose your personally identifiable information to others under the following circumstances:

  • You consent to share the information.
  • In response to subpoenas, court orders or legal process, including from jurisdictions outside the United States.
  • Your actions on our Site are, or appear to be, in violation of the Terms of Service and disclosure of this information will assist in efforts to enforce the Terms of Service.
  • You post a listing which iOffer believes in its sole discretion may create liability for iOffer and disclosure of this personal information may minimize or eliminate iOffer’s liability.
  • For security purposes or to prevent imminent harm to any person or entity.
  • If iOffer.com is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets.
  • To cooperate with law enforcement investigations, which may include responding to requests and court orders from jurisdictions outside the United States.

We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities, and reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful, as determined in our sole discretion. Release of your personal data for security purposes, as described in this Agreement to any person or entity under any circumstances shall be based on a determination made solely by us, exercising our sole discretion, permission for which is expressly granted by you to us in accordance with this policy.


6. Protection of Your Personal Information and General Information

6.1. Security Measures.

We provide you with the capability to transmit your personal information via secured and encrypted channels if you use a similarly equipped web browser. Unfortunately, perfect security does not always exist on the Internet (or in the real world). Despite this, we will do our best to continue to ensure the security of your private information.

iOffer sometimes contains links to other websites, including links from partners that may use iOffer’s logos as part of a co-branding agreement. This privacy policy does not apply to such third party websites, nor are we responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

Integration with third party social networking sites includes, but is not limited to, the sharing of login credentials, including profile information and furthering iOffer’s marketing efforts. Third party social networking sites have their own separate privacy policy, and although we seek to protect the integrity of our site, iOffer is not liable for the content and activities of those sites.

You can always opt-out of connecting your iOffer profile with third party sites. You may disconnect your iOffer profile or manage the information you share with third party social networking sites by logging in to our website and visiting your account page.

Our Web site also includes Social Media Features such as the Facebook Like button and Widgets, such as Twitter feeds, Add This button or interactive mini-programs that run on our site. These Features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the Feature to function properly.

Your interactions with these Features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. iOffer does not store this information.
