We collect information when you register as a member on our website, manage transactions or subscribe to our newsletter.

You may however visit our site anonymously, but a member account will be necessary to buy and/or sell on our website.
We do not use credit cards as a payment method directly on our website so we will never ask you for any credit card information. Your credit card cannot therefore be misused on our website. We decline all responsibility of any indirect illegal transactions as credit card payments are only accepted through third-party payment gateways (such as PayPal) to guarantee the security to our member's personal information.
