Collecting, Using and Disclosing Information
WHAT TYPES OF INFORMATION DOES TRADEE GATHER ABOUT ITS USERS?
Information that you give us
We receive, store and process information that you make available to us when accessing or using our Platform and Services. Examples include when you:
Storing of Information and Restricting Access
We may store your personal information (in encrypted form where we believe it to be highly sensitive) in electronic databases or e-mail boxes hosted by us or our Service Providers, for periods of time and with safeguards that we believe are reasonable depending on the nature and sensitivity of the information. Access to the information is restricted in accordance with our security protocols.
Certain features on our services are password-protected to prevent unauthorized access. You are responsible for the confidentiality and use of such passwords.
Due to the nature of Internet communications and evolving technologies, we cannot provide assurance that the personal information we collect will remain free from loss, interception, misuse or alteration by third parties and we and our Service Providers shall have no liability for any loss, interception, misuse or alteration.
Automatic Collection of Information
When you use certain features of the services, in particular our mobile app we may receive, store and process different types of information about your location, including general information (e.g., IP address, zip code) and more specific information (e.g., GPS-based functionality on mobile devices used to access the services or specific features of the platform). If you access the services through a mobile device and you do not want your device to provide us with location-tracking information, you can disable the GPS or other location-tracking functions on your device, provided your device allows you to do this. See your device manufacturer's instructions for further details, but some features won’t work.
Connecting your Instagram Account
Our iOS application allows you to connect to your personal Instagram account in order to collect your own photos and use them to publish a listing on Tradee. We do not store or cache your Instagram login credentials.
We may also receive, store and process Log Data, which is information that is automatically recorded by our servers whenever you access or use the services, regardless of whether you are registered with TRADEE or logged in to your TRADEE account, such as your IP Address, the date and time you access or use the Platform, the hardware and software you are using, referring and exit pages and URLs, the number of clicks, pages viewed and the order of those pages, and the amount of time spent on particular pages, as well as some of your activity on Tradee’s app (e.g.: likes, listing viewed).
Some pages on our Website use a technology called "cookies". A cookie is a token that a server gives to your browser when you access a website. Cookies are capable of storing many types of data. Cookies may be placed by us. Cookies help provide additional functionality to our Website or help provide and analyze our Website traffic and usage information. For instance, our server may set a cookie that keeps you from having to enter a password more than once during a visit to our Website. In all cases in which cookies are used, we will not collect personally-identifiable information except with your permission.

Third-party social plugins
Our services may use social plugins which are provided and operated by third-party companies, such as Facebook's Login / Share with Instagram.
As a result of this, you may send to the third-party company the information that you are viewing on a certain part of our services. If you are not logged into your account with the third-party company, then the third party may not know your identity. If you are logged into your account with the third-party company, then the third party may be able to link information about your visit to our Platform to your account with them. Similarly, your interactions with the social plugin may be recorded by the third party.
We may provide your personal information to other persons but only if:
We may send your personal information outside of the country for the purposes set out herein, including for process and storage by Service Providers in connection with such purposes, and you should note that while such information is out of the country, it is subject to the laws of the country in which it is held, and may be subject to disclosure to the governments, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of such other country, pursuant to the laws of such country.
