As stated above, we do not disclose your personal information to third parties for their marketing and advertising purposes without your explicit consent.
Service providers and financial institutions partners

financial institution partners who may offer financial products to our users to provide joint content and services (like registration, transactions and customer support), to help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts, violations of our policies, fraud and/or security breaches, and to guide decisions about their products, websites, applications, services, tools and communications. These third party financial institution partners will use this information to send you marketing communications only if you have requested their services
Law enforcement, legal proceedings and as authorized by law
to comply with our legal requirements, enforce our policies, respond to claims that a listing or other content violates the rights of others, or protect anyone's rights, property or safety
to law enforcement or governmental agencies, or authorized third parties, in response to a verified request relating to a criminal investigation or alleged or suspected illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other Landlinks user to legal liability. We will only disclose information we deem relevant to the investigation or inquiry, such as name, city, state, postcode, telephone number, email address, user ID history, IP address, fraud complaints, bidding and listing history, and anything else we deem relevant
to credit bureaus as authorised by applicable law (e.g. information on late or missed payments or other defaults on your account that may be reflected in your credit report)
to third parties involved in a legal proceeding, if they provide us with a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, or we otherwise believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.
People you authorise us to provide it to
Landlinks users as authorised by you or your use of our Services (e.g. if you buy an item, the seller may view your email address and request and obtain your contact information – including phone number or email and postal address – to help complete the transaction)
We protect your information using technical and administrative security measures to reduce the risks of loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure and alteration. Some of the safeguards we use are firewalls and data encryption, physical access controls to our data centres and information access authorisation controls.
There are just a few more pieces of important privacy information related to your use of our Services that we need to cover:
When you share your personal information on Landlinks – what happens?
Other users have access to the information you share on Landlinks. For example, other people can see your purchases, items for sale, your collections, the members and collections you follow, ratings and associated comments. Other users can also see any information you chose to share in your profile or your collections.
Your user ID is displayed throughout Landlinks and is available to the public. It is connected to all of your Landlinks activity. Notices sent to other community members about suspicious activity and notice violations on our sites refer to user IDs and specific items. So if you associate your name with your user ID, the people to whom you have revealed your name will be able to personally identify your Landlinks activities.
To help protect your privacy, we allow only limited access to other users' contact, postage and financial information as necessary to facilitate your transactions and collect payments. However, when users are involved in a transaction, they have access to each other's name, user ID, email address and other contact and postage information.
How you should use the information you receive on Landlinks
Landlinks enables you to obtain personal information of others to complete transactions and collect payments. We encourage you to disclose your privacy practices and respect the privacy of other users. 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.
Use the personal information that you have access to only for Landlinks transaction-related purposes, for using services offered through Landlinks (such as escrow, postage and fraud complaints), and for purposes expressly consented by the user to whom the information relates. Using personal information that you have access to for any other purpose is a violation of our policies.
Unwanted or threatening email
Sending unwanted or threatening email is against our policies and constitutes a violation of our Terms and Conditions. To report Landlinks-related spam or spoof emails please forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Third party privacy practices
We cannot guarantee the privacy or security of your information once you provide it to a third party and we encourage you to evaluate the privacy and security policies of your trading partner before entering into a transaction and choosing to share your information. This is true even where the third parties to whom you disclose personal information are bidders, buyers or sellers on our sites.
