Communication preferences can be changed via “Account Information” in the user profile at any time. We may also use your street addresses and telephone numbers to provide these communications.

6. Sharing of your Personal Information.

CODAMADE does not sell, share, trade or give away Personal Information other than as described in this Privacy Policy, or unless you provide prior consent.

CODAMADE may share Personal Information between the different CODAMADE entities where necessary to provide our services to you. We reveal your Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties when you request or authorize it, or to help complete a transaction for you that you have requested.

Where you use our Site to enter into a transaction or correspond with another individual or business registered as a seller on our Site, we may provide your Personal Information to that other party in order to facilitate certain transactions or the correspondence you have requested. For relevant transactions, once your offer is submitted, your Personal Information will be delivered by CODAMADE to that seller, and your order will be placed.

Third parties who will have access to your Personal Information include but are not limited to sellers selling items on the Site that you have contacted or made a purchase from, shipping companies, and payment processors completing a transaction at your request.

Sellers from whom you purchase items will have their own privacy practices regarding the information they receive. We encourage you to read such applicable privacy policies. We are not responsible for the processing of your Personal Information by such third parties.

We may share your Personal Information with other companies or agents who have been selected and who perform functions on our behalf (e.g., analyzing data, IT and network services, providing marketing assistance, providing customer service, processing orders, shipping or customs agents, etc.).

We will only transfer your Personal Information to trusted third parties who provide sufficient guarantees in respect of the technical and organizational security measures governing the processing to be carried out and who can demonstrate a commitment to compliance with those measures.

Where third parties are processing Personal Information on our behalf, they will be required to agree, by contractual means or otherwise, to process the Personal Information in accordance with applicable law.  

These companies may then use your information for their own purposes including marketing to you if you consent to receive notifications relating to their products and services. Where you consent to these companies using your information for their own purposes, their use will be governed by their own privacy policies, which you should review.  

We may also disclose your Personal Information to comply with the law, applicable regulations, governmental and quasi-governmental requests, court orders or subpoenas, to enforce our agreements, or to protect our rights, property or safety, or the rights, property or safety of our users or others, such as in connection with suspected illegal activity in connection with our Site, products or services (e.g., sharing Personal Information with a consumer reporting agency for fraud protection, etc.). We reserve the right to release Personal Information to law enforcement or other government officials, as we, in our sole discretion, deem necessary or appropriate.

This may also include sharing Personal Information with governmental entities, or third parties in response to subpoenas, court orders, other legal processes, or as we believe is necessary to exercise our legal rights, to defend against legal claims that have been brought against us, to defend against possible legal claims that we determine in our sole discretion might be brought against us, to investigate and help prevent security threats, fraud or other malicious activity and to protect the rights or personal safety of CODAMADE employees and third parties (including sellers and buyers).

In the event of a corporate transaction involving CODAMADE, such as the purchase, sale or other transfer of all or part of our services or assets, we may transfer your Personal Information along with those assets or services to a prospective transferee.  In the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership, such Personal Information may also be transferred as a business asset.  If another company acquires any of our corporate entities, businesses or assets, that acquiring company may acquire your Personal Information. We do not guarantee that any entity receiving such Personal Information in connection with one of these transactions will comply with all of the terms of this Privacy Policy following such transaction. However, it is our practice to seek reasonable protection for Personal Information in these types of transactions.

7. International transfers.

You are advised to be aware that the Personal Information we receive from you and about you may be held on our computers and systems in the European Union and the computers and systems of our offices and data centers in the United States and may be accessed by or given to our staff working outside the European Union.

Your Personal Information may be processed by us in the United States, where laws regarding data protection may be less stringent than the laws in your country. By using this Site and by providing any Personal Information to the Site, all users, including without limitation users in Canada, the UK and the European Union, acknowledge CODAMADE collection and processing of such Personal Information in the United States.

In addition, sellers registered on the Site are located around the world. Due to the nature of our business and to enable us to offer goods and services worldwide, your Personal Information may be transferred to and held by merchants or sellers in any country in the world. By using this Site and by providing any Personal Information to the Site, all users, including without limitation users in Canada, the UK and the European Union, acknowledge the transfer of Personal Information to such third parties.

When disclosing Personal Information from the EU and the UK to a third party located in a country not recognized by the European Commission as ensuring an adequate level of protection (e.g., the United States), we will take appropriate steps to safeguard such Personal Information, such as by implementing the European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses.

8. How you can access and amend your Personal Information.

Subject to any legislation which might, from time to time, oblige us to store the Personal Information for a certain period of time, we will respect your wishes to correct inaccurate Personal Information. Otherwise, we will hold your Personal Information for no longer than is necessary in connection with our aims as detailed in this Privacy Policy.

You can ask us whether we are keeping Personal Information about you and you can ask to receive a copy of that Personal Information. Before sending you any Personal Information, we will ask you to provide proof of your identity. If you are not able to provide proof of your identity, we reserve the right to refuse to send you any Personal Information. We will respond as quickly as we reasonably can to your requests for details of Personal Information we hold about you.

9. Security.

As a registered user of the Site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password. Please keep your user ID and password confidential.

If you share your computer, we recommend that you log out and close your browser window after visiting the Site in order to protect the confidentiality of your Personal Information including your credit card information, your offer status and buying history.

You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security. We reserve the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, or remove or edit content at our sole discretion.

We use reasonable physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to help us protect the security, integrity and confidentiality of data stored on our system. 

Except as specified in this Privacy Policy, we use commercially reasonable efforts to limit access to your Personal Information to the employees, officers, third-party contractors, and strategic partners of CODAMADE who need the Personal Information in order to perform their responsibilities. 

Please note that any Personal Information you provide us by email is unencrypted. Any transmission of Personal Information via the internet is not completely secure and although we will endeavor to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our Site; any transmission is therefore at your own risk. However, once we have received your information, we will use procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

10. Opt-out.

If you do not wish to receive offers or other notices from us in the future, you can “opt-out” by opting out of email or by contacting us at the address indicated at the end of this policy. We will try to complete your request as promptly as possible. You can elect not to receive emails from us either by “unsubscribing” to an email you receive or by contacting us as indicated below. Any changes will affect only future uses of your information.
