CJPS Enterprises, LLC will not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your consent.  From time to time we may reveal general statistical information about our Web site and visitors, such as number of visitors, number and type of goods and services purchased, etc.  Your trust and confidence are our highest priority.

2.         INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you use our Site, we collect and store your personal information from you.  Our primary goal in doing so is to provide a safe, efficient, smooth and customized experience.  This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customize our Site to make your experience safer and easier.  Importantly, we only collect personal information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose.

In general, you can browse the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.  Once you give us your personal information, you are not anonymous to us.  To fully use our Site, you will need to register using our online registration form, where you may be required to provide us with your contact and identity information, billing information and other personal information as indicated on the forms throughout the Site.  Where possible, we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional.


We may automatically track certain information about you based upon your behavior on our site.  We use this information to do internal research on our users’ demographics, interests and behavior to better understand, protect and serve our users.  This information is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis.  This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on our site or not), your computer browser information, and your IP address.

We use data collection devices such as “cookies” on certain pages of the Site to help analyze our web page flow, measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety.  “Cookies” are small files placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing our services.  We offer certain features that are only available through the use of a “cookie.”  We also use cookies to allow you to enter your password less frequently during a session.  Cookies can also help us provide information that is targeted to your interests.  Most cookies are “session cookies,” meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session.  You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on the Site and you may be required to reenter your password more frequently during a session.

Additionally, you may encounter “cookies” or other similar devices on certain pages of the Site that are placed by third parties.  For example, if you view a web page created by a user, there may be a “cookie” placed within that web page.  We do not control the use of cookies by third parties.

If you use our Site, we collect information about your use and behavior.  We also collect other users’ comments about you in our feedback area. If you establish a credit account with us to pay the fees we charge, we collect some additional information, such as a billing address, a credit card number and a credit card expiration date and tracking information from checks or money orders.

If you choose to post messages on our message boards, chat rooms or other message areas or leave feedback for other users, we will collect that information you provide to us.  We retain this information as necessary to resolve disputes, provide customer support and troubleshoot problems as permitted by law.

If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the Site, we may collect such information into a file specific to you.

If you register for the Site on another web site or use a web site providing a service for CJPS Enterprises, LLC or a web site that helps facilitate your activity on the Site, that web site may provide personal information about you and your transactions back to us.

3.         OUR USE OF YOUR INFORMATION

If you choose to provide us with your financial information, we use your address and billing information to bill you and provide associated support.

You agree that we may use personal information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyze site usage, improve the Site’s content and product offerings, and customize the Site’s content, layout, and services.  These uses improve the Site and better tailor it to meet your needs, so as to provide you with a smooth, efficient, safe and customized experience while using the Site.

4.         OUR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

We may also use your information to deliver information to you that, in some cases, are targeted to your interests, such as new services and promotions. The following are examples of some categories of persons to whom we would share your information with from time-to-time.

i.          When a third party lists content on the Site, and the content receives an expression of interest by an interested user, the interested user will be provided the contact information of the lister of the content as provided in that lister’s registration form.
ii.         When a user expresses an interest in content listed on the Site, the lister of the content will be provided the contact information of the interested user as provided in the interested user’s registration form.

 

C.         Items and Services Offered on the Site by Third Parties.

There are certain items and services for which third parties request for information before the item/service is listed on the Site.  The information provided by the user for such purposes is simultaneously collected by CJPS Enterprises, LLC and the respective third party.  This information is utilized by the third party in accordance with its privacy policy and the terms of the offer.  Because we do not control the privacy practices of these third parties, you should evaluate their practices before deciding to use their services.

 

D.         Internal Service Providers.

We may use third parties that we refer to as internal service providers to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of the business, product and service operations that we provide to you on the Site (e.g., search technology, discussion boards and bill collection) and therefore we may provide some of your personal information directly to these internal service providers.  These internal service providers’ are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and other legal restrictions that prohibit their use of the information we provide them for any other purpose except to facilitate the specific outsourced Site related operation, unless you have explicitly agreed or given your prior permission to them for additional uses.  In some instances, the internal service provider may collect information directly from you (such as for Site surveys or for a co-branded credit card).  In these cases, you will be notified of the involvement of the internal service provider, and all additional information you provide them and their additional uses will be strictly up to you.  If you provide additional information to an internal service provider directly, then their use of your personal information is governed by their applicable privacy policy.

 

E.          Other Entities.

We share much of our data, including personal information about you, with our affiliates, subsidiaries, and joint ventures that are committed to serving your online trading needs and related services, throughout the world.  To the extent that these entities have access to your information, they will treat it at least as protectively as they treat information they obtain from their other users. CJPS Enterprises, LLC, and its affiliates, subsidiaries and joint ventures, or any combination of such, will share some or all of your personal information with another business entity should we plan to, merge with, or be acquired by that business entity. Should such a combination occur, we will require that the new combined entity follow this privacy policy with respect to your personal information.

 

F.          Legal Requests.

We cooperate with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties to enforce laws, such as: intellectual property rights, fraud and other rights, to help protect you and the community from bad actors.  Therefore, in response to a verified request by law enforcement or other government officials relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose your name, city, state, telephone number, email address, user username history, fraud complaints, and bidding and listing history without a subpoena.  Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and our ability to keep the community free from bad actors, we will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement or other government officials without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss; or report suspected Illegal activity. Further, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose your name, street address, city, state, zip code, country, phone number, email, and company name to such owners of intellectual property rights as we in our sole discretion believe necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, piracy, or other unlawful activity.

 

Due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy policy.  By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), we may be forced to disclose personal information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the Site.  Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

In all cases, you must give users and listers an opportunity to remove themselves from your database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them.  In addition, under no circumstances, except as defined in this Section, can you disclose personally identifiable information about another user to any third party without our consent and the consent of such other user after adequate disclosure.

CJPS Enterprises, LLC and our users and listers do not tolerate spam.  Therefore, without limiting the foregoing, you are not licensed to add an CJPS Enterprises, LLC user or lister—even a user or lister who has transacted business with you—to your mail list (email or physical mail) without their express consent after adequate disclosure.
