6. Our disclosure of your information
As a matter of policy, we do not sell or rent any of your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. However, the following describes some of the ways that your personal information may be disclosed in the normal scope of business to provide our services.
Advertisers We aggregate (gather up data across all user accounts) personal information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for their marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to identify you personally. Certain information, such as your name, email address, password, PayPal account and bank account number, are not disclosed to these third parties in a personally identifiable manner without your explicit consent.
Neeboz.com.au Community Your User ID and your suburb of residence is displayed throughout the Site and is therefore available to the public. All of your activities on the Site will be identifiable to your User ID. Other people can see the items you are offering to trade and items that you want, items that you have purchased in the past, your feedback rating and associated comments, your postings on the Site, and so on. Therefore, if you associate your name with your User ID, the people you have revealed your name to will be able to personally identify your Neeboz.com.au activities.
Although personal contact information is not publicly viewable on the site and your profile information is protected, others may illegally attempt to automatically collect your personal contact information from the Site.
Further, we may send out notices to you or other community members regarding suspicious activity or policy violations on the Site.
Legal Requests Neeboz.com.au cooperates 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 Neeboz.com.au 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 ID history, fraud complaints, and trading history without a court order. 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 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.

10. Accessing, reviewing and changing your personal information
We offer you the ability to automatically review and change the information you submit to us by logging into the Site and entering in the new information yourself.

You can change your email address, password, contact information and user preferences by going to the necessary section in the Profile. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate.
Once posted, you may not be able to change or remove any postings made on the Site including emails, notes or feedback.

We treat data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.
When you trade, we need to know your name, e-mail address, residential address, and other contact information. This information is used solely by Neeboz.com.au and will not be handed out to third party vendors or advertisers for any reason. The information you provide does allow us to ensure trades are conducted in a timely and safe manner.
