Changes to the eBay User Agreement and Privacy Policy
Dear
I'm writing to let you know that the eBay.co.uk User Agreement and Privacy Policy have been updated, effective immediately for users registering as of 13 July 2008 and on 13 August 2008 for current users.
The most important thing to keep in mind about this update is that your rights, and our responsibilities, under the User Agreement and Privacy Policy have changed very little. This update will make the user agreements and privacy policies for eBay platforms around the world much more consistent. Now, when you interact with any eBay platform around the world, you can be sure that similar policies will apply to you no matter where you transact.
There are a few substantive changes we've made, to help us keep our legal documents consistent with the ways our sites and services are evolving and to better meet the needs of our user community. Let me call out a few important ones here:
Changes to the User Agreement




Late Fee Withdrawal From PayPal After 180 Days Past Due. The vast majority of our sellers settle their balances on time or before 180 days. eBay will resort to a PayPal withdrawal only after the balance has been overdue 180 days and our other collection efforts have been unsuccessful. We believe this helps level the playing field for the rest of the sellers who pay their bills. Should eBay withdraw late fees, this will not alter the status of a seller's PayPal account or funds remaining after the withdrawal.



New Catalogue Services. The agreement's "Content" and "Liability" sections have been revised to accommodate new features that could give sellers catalogues of content and product descriptions, so they can easily include complete and up-to-date product information for the items they list.
Changes to the Privacy Policy
The new Privacy Policy, like the old one, outlines the broad categories of information we collect from you, how we use this information, and what your options are with respect to the information we collect. You'll notice a few substantive changes to the policy that allow us to offer new services, better tailor the services we provide, and help make our site safer:



Combating Fraud. We're increasing our efforts to combat fraud on the site with a variety of programs. We've made some changes that allow us to address "Ask a Question" and "My Messages" spam and other malicious activities using our message systems, or to better authenticate you if you're using an unfamiliar computer to prevent fraudsters from abusing your account. We're also making sure our disclosures about cooperating with law enforcement allow us to respond to increasingly sophisticated fraudsters and criminals.



Streamlining Services. We've heard your comments about how many steps it takes to complete a transaction or get customer support where multiple eBay companies are involved. We've made some changes to our Disclosure section that will help make your experience across the eBay Inc. platform as seamless as we can make it. These changes will, where appropriate, allow our Customer Support team to help you with questions that span our companies, and streamline your use of the services provided by multiple members of the eBay corporate family. Some of our new programs also mean you'll see eBay services and content in a lot of places (not just on the site), so we've made some changes to clarify where our policies apply.



Customising Your eBay Experience. We're rolling out programs and working with partners that help make our sites and services, and some of the ads you see on the web, more relevant and useful to you. Naturally, because we're a transparent community, we will provide you with choices about these programmes. You'll notice a new preference now available in My eBay -: named AdChoice -: that lets you tell us whether you want us to use the information we have about you to customize the ads you see. You'll be able to sign in and change your advertising preferences in My eBay at any time. In some cases, we may also use information from other companies to select the right audiences for our promotions. In the revised Privacy Policy, you'll see a new Marketing section that describes in more detail our collection and use of information for these and all our marketing programmes.
With these changes, we continue to make sure that our legal documents are consistent with the ways our sites and services are evolving and to better meet the needs of our user community. We hope you'll agree that these changes will make the eBay sites and services work better for you. If you accept the new User Agreement and Privacy Policy, you don't need to take any action. If you do not wish to accept the new User Agreement or Privacy Policy, please refer to our Help pages for instructions on how to close your account.
Thank you for using eBay and we look forward to many more successful transactions!
Sincerely,
Scott Shipman
Senior Counsel - Global Privacy Practices
eBay Inc.

That's the interesting one. Paypal is supposed to be a separate company and a bona fide money (laundering) institution. Can you imagine if say BT had it in their t&c's that if you didn't pay your bill on time they had the RIGHT to raid your bank account? Amounts to pretty much the same thing as far as I can see.

Of course to use ebay you have to agree to their t&c's so I suppose its all legal. Not a nice way to do business though imho.

The "e" in "e"bay stands for EVIL!!! I thought g@@gle was going to take them on at their own game...The sooner the better I say!
#3
i didnt know google was going to take them on hope they do as i am seriously thinking of closing my ebay account down as i dont like the new layout and search which they are making compulsory and i dont like the idea of my bank account being burgled just for being late as if no money in the account then will also end up with charges from the bank so could get costly as i only transfer money over if i buy something so cant get hacked as they get nowt

It was rumoured that Google were / are making plans to do an auction website, rather than charging high fees for listing and commission on sales they would use contextual ads in all auctions as well...but it is all hush hush at the moment.

Feebay have grown too big for their boots in my opinion..the mighty always fall one day..rather sooner than later I hope.

I liked the comment that was made by the head honcho of eBay in the States...referring to sellers to a flea market...he seems to forget that 'flea market' made eBay what it is today. And that same 'flea market' has got him the job that he does

They have got too greedy with fees hikes and the treatment of sellers whom are the backbone of eBay..I really do hope Google get up and running..could see a lot of eBay sellers and buyers going over to Google...I would anyway.

you dont think google would do the same?

You'd probably find some great 'opening'/'defection' offers from Google, then slightly cheaper prices for a while & then a game of tit-for-tat between the 2 in terms of fees & offers as they fight for market share/supremacy....ultimately they'd end up pretty similar.
When you think about it Ebay take the "urine" because they have a virtual monopoly...with Google as the rival 'marketplace' the 2 of them could stitch us up with NO-ONE left to take them on............

It'd be interesting to see if something like this went ahead whether Google would block Paypal as an option like Ebay did with GoogleCheckout???
