To make Our Service work properly, We sometimes place small data files called cookies or tags on Your Internet Browser.

We encourage You to review the entire Policy. For quick access to a particular Policy section, click on the desired link below:  










A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on Your computer every time You visit a website. It enables the website to remember Your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so You don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever You return to the website or browse from one page to another. 

Cookies have different lifespans:

  • Persistent: these files remember certain information about Your preferences for viewing a website, and allows the website manager to recognise you each time you return. These are stored on Your browser cache until You choose to delete them.
  • Session: these files are specific to a particular visit to a website or mobile app that carry information as You view different pages on a website so You don’t have to re-enter information.


Our Cookies: We use Our domain specific persistent cookies to uniquely identify You after You access Our Service. Upon successfully logging in, Our server will generate a unique and random token. A copy of the token is saved on Our server, and a copy is sent to Your browser as a cookie or a copy is sent to Your mobile app as a login token. Your browser sends this token back to Our server each time it requests a resource from Our server, such as a new page to which You are navigating. Our servers then look up Your secure profile using this token.

Our cookies are required to enable certain features that relate to Your personal account. These include:

  • Buying & Selling
  • Adding items to a Wantlist or Collection
  • Making Lists

  • Saving preferences
  • Submitting to the Database
  • Messaging other users

We also partner with others, who may use various tracking technologies to provide certain services or features, including targeted online marketing techniques such as attribution tracking, remarketing, and cross-device tracking:

  • Attribution tracking means identifying the advertising or marketing source a user followed to arrive at Our Service, or to determine what source should get credit for Service visits.
  • Remarketing means showing relevant ads to users based on users’ prior search history on Our Service.
  • Cross-device tracking means recognizing users across multiple devices or browsers.

On Our Service and unaffiliated websites, We display interest-based advertising using information You make available to Us when You interact with Our Service. Interest-based ads (i.e., personalized or targeted ads) are displayed to You based on information from activities such as interacting with Our Service, use of devices, apps or software, or visiting websites that contain Our content or ads. See Our Privacy Policy for more information about the types of information that We gather and how it is used.

Like other websites, We use tracking technologies (collectively, "cookies"). Cookies enable Us to learn about what ads You see, what ads You click, and other actions You take on Our Service and other websites. This allows Us to provide You with more useful and relevant ads and avoid showing You the same ads repeatedly. We do not associate Your interaction with unaffiliated sites with Your identity in providing You with interest-based ads.

We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third-party sites that display Our interest-based ads. However, advertisers and other third-parties (including the ad networks, ad-serving companies, and other service providers they may use) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalised ad or content are part of the group that the ad or content is directed towards (for example, users in a particular geographical area or users who bought or browsed for specific categories of goods). We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that advertisers and third-party sites may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party websites are not covered by Our Privacy Policy or this Policy. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices.
