In addition to our direct collection of information, third parties, such as those we have an affiliate relationship with, and our payment provider, PayPal, who provides payment services for Featured Listings and paid advertisements may collect their own information from our Visitors and Authorized Customers. We do not control how any of these third parties, including PayPal uses such information, but we do ask them to disclose how they intend to use personal information provided to them from our Visitors and Authorized Customers.
