In addition to sharing with Merchants, as described above, we may share your personal information, whether you are a Merchant or a Buyer, as follows:
We may share, at our discretion, information that has been made anonymous, so that it does not identify a specific user through de-identification or aggregation ("De-Identified Data") and we do not limit our third party providers from using, selling, licensing, distributing or disclosing De-Identified Data.
We use, and allow our third party partners to use, cookies and other technologies, including pixel tags to collect information about you automatically. This is done in order to provide, improve and promote our Services. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile device, while pixel tags are transparent graphic images placed in the Service or emails we send you. Cookies and pixel tags help us remember your username for your next visit, understand how you use our Services and to improve our Services based on that information. You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your use of the Services.
