XXVIII. PRIVACY POLICY
  1. By agreeing to these Terms, you are also accepting the terms of our Privacy Policy. You should be aware that when you click certain links on our website or within our app you could be directed to other companies' properties outside of our hosted environment where the information collected is outside of our direct control. The privacy policy of the third parties' properties or applications will govern the information obtained from you by these third parties in those contexts.

  2. INTRODUCTION TO THE POLICY: Our privacy policy describes the ways in which we collect, store, use and protect your personal information and it is important for you to review this privacy policy. By "personal information" we mean information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person. We do not consider anonymized information to constitute personal information as it cannot be used to identify a specific person. We collect personal information from you when you use the Platform (including, without limitation, when you buy and sell items or when you telephone or email our customer support team). By providing us with your personal information you expressly consent to us processing your personal information in accordance with the terms of our privacy policy.

  3. COLLECTION: As part of your registration on the Platform, you will be asked to provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, shipping address, email address and/or telephone number and other similar information as well as some additional information about you such as your date of birth or other identifying information. Additionally, in order for us to verify your identity, we may need to request from you valid proof of identification (e.g. in the form of a copy of your passport, resident's visa or permit, national ID card and/or driver's license). We will also need to collect selected financial information from you, such as your credit card and/or bank account details. You will need to input this financial information into the "My Account" section of the Platform. We use this financial information for billing purposes and for the fulfillment of your orders. Following your registration on the Platform, you should not post any personal information (including any financial information) anywhere on the Platform other than on the My Account section of the Platform. Restricting the posting of personal information to the My Account section of the Platform protects you from the possibility of fraud or identity theft. The posting by you of any personal information anywhere on the Platform other than on the My Account section of the Platform may lead to the suspension of your use of the Platform. We will collect transactional information based on your activities using the Platform (such as buying and selling items). This transactional information is used solely in relation to the transactions you undertake on the Platform and for no other reasons. Please note that we may use your Internet protocol (or IP) address (which is a unique number assigned to your computer server or your Internet service provider (or ISP)) to analyze user trends and improve the administration of the Platform. We may also collect information about your computer (for example, browser type) and navigation information (for example, the pages you visit on the Platform) along with the times that you access the Platform. Finally, we may collect additional information from or about you in other ways not specifically described here. For example, we may collect information related to your contact with our customer support team or store results when you respond to a survey. We may also collect feedback ratings and other comments relating to your use of the Platform. Where we aggregate personal information for statistical purposes, such aggregated personal information shall be anonymized.

  4. FDX's USE OF INFORMATION: We only use your personal information to provide services and customer support to you; to measure and improve our services to you; to prevent illegal activities and implement our Agreement (Terms of Use); troubleshoot problems; collect fees; provide you with promotional emails and verify information you give us with third parties. For example, we may share some of the personal information you give us with banks or credit card authorization, processing and verification services or with third parties for fraud screening purposes. Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy, we may need to disclose your personal information to law enforcement agencies, government agencies or other third parties where we are compelled so to do by court order or similar legal procedure; where we are required to disclose your personal information to comply with law; where we are cooperating with an ongoing law enforcement investigation or where we have a good faith belief that our disclosure of your personal information is necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss, to report suspected illegal activity or to investigate a possible violation of our Agreement. In the event of a sale of Furniture and Décor Exchange FZE, any of its affiliates and subsidiaries or any related business assets, your personal information may be disclosed to any potential purchaser for the purposes of the continued provision of the Platform or otherwise in relation to any such sale. We may share your personal information with our other group companies so as to provide joint content and services to you, to help detect illegal acts and/or the violations of our policies. This contact information will be the personal information provided by you to us on registration and, as a result, should always be kept up-to-date. Additionally, information relating to items you are buying or selling on the Platform. This information can include details of your user ID, feedback ratings and associated comments relating to your use of the Platform. Otherwise, we will only disclose your personal information to a third party with your express permission. We do not sell or rent any of your personal information to third parties in the normal course of doing business and will only share your personal information with third parties in accordance with this privacy policy. By registering on the Platform, you give us your express consent to receive promotional emails about our services and emails announcing changes to, and new features on, the Platform. If, at any time, you decide that you do not wish to receive any such emails, you can opt out of receiving such emails by clicking on the link at the bottom of any of the emails or by going to the My Account section of the Platform. Additionally, we do use comments made by you about the Platform for marketing purposes and by making such comments you expressly consent to our using such comments for marketing purposes.
