Transcript

  • 1. An eBay user?.... or new to eBay?
  • 2. With “..more than 125 million [users] worldwide today.” (McKay, 2005)
  • 3. I’m sure all of eBay’s members have read the User Agreement and the Privacy Policy?
  • 4. If not here are...
  • 5. ...the 2 they agreed to.
    http://pages.ebay.com.au/help/policies/privacy-policy.html
    http://pages.ebay.com.au/help/policies/user-agreement.html
  • 6. But let’s sum some of it up.
  • 7. User Agreement Policy
  • 8. eBay users ACKNOWLEDGE and AGREE..
  • 9. That eBay IS NOT involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers.
  • 10. That eBay cannot ensure and do not guarantee that a member of eBay’s Site will actually complete a transaction or act lawfully.
  • 11. That eBay has no control over:
    • The quality, safety or legality of items
    • 12. The content posted by members
    • 13. The truth or accuracy of the listing
    • 14. Whether the user can sell or buy the item
  • That eBay’s User Agreement could be assigned to a third party without the members consent. In this event the member will be bound by the Agreement.
  • 15. As an eBay member, the user is responsible for ALL of their actions (however they arise).
    Even if the member’s account becomes hijacked and misused.
  • 16. In most cases when an item has been sold, the buyer has created a legally binding contract with that other member.
  • 17. Protection for others!A person who provides a free email account (Hotmail, Gmail) upon registration, MUST either provide a PayPal account or Credit Card details as additional information
  • 18. As a member, the user is considered by eBay to have accepted the changes in terms in any policy change just by logging in (whether they are aware of these changes or not!)
  • 19. Any products and content that are listed must be the members own work or work that the member is legally entitled to use.
  • 20. Members cannot:
    • Copy someone else's text or images and (without permission) use it in their own listing
    • 21. Link an image from another listing or website (without permission)(eBay, 2009b)
  • But it still happens!
  • 22. Under 18’s do not qualify to use eBay’s services
  • 23. But IF the user is under 18 years old, the user CANstill use eBay providing they are supervised by their parents or guardian
  • 24. From this survey it suggests that our youth are not as “supervised” on the internet as they should be....
    Source: (Aslanidou, S., & Aslanidou, 2008)
  • 25. ...as the internet is faceless, it allows for users to lie or provide a somewhat different identity other than that in reality (Pinnelli, 2002).
  • 26. and eBay admit it.
  • 27. Will this stop unsupervised under 18’s from creating an account?.....probably not.
  • 28. Privacy Policy
  • 29. eBay can collect, use, and in some cases, disclose information about members to third parties.
  • 30. eBay do not sell or rent any personal information about their members to any third party.
  • 31. eBay share all personal data with PayPal
  • 32.
  • 33. coming from Gmail..
    Gmail
    eBay
    eBay can collect websites you have just come from (not just within eBay)E.G. John just checked his Gmail Inbox, now he has navigated and signed into eBay.eBay now know John just came from checking his Gmail Inbox
  • 34. going to..
    Other Site
    eBay
    eBay can collect websites you have just gone to (not just pages within eBay)E.G. John just checked the finishing time left on a bid he has been watching. With 3 hours left, he navigates away from eBay to look at some pornography at www.porno.com. eBay now know John has gone to www.porno.com to look at some pornography.
  • 35. If eBay merge
    or were to be bought
    by another business, members’ information is more than likely to be shared
  • 36. If an eBay member is under investigation, eBay will hand over all of that member’s person information to law enforcement or other government officials.
  • 37. In the event the member ends their account with eBay, don’t expect eBay to remove all of their personal details from eBay’s database.
    This is due to “technical constraints” and that eBay back-up all data.
  • 38. Here is what information eBay share..
  • 39. Personal Information
    (eBay, 2009a)
    * = Required X= Available O = will be available if the user has not provided a User ID.
  • 40. Financial Information
    (eBay, 2009a)
    * = Required X= Available O = will be available if the user has not provided a User ID.
  • 41. Client Information
    (eBay, 2009a)
    * = Required X= Available O = will be available if the user has not provided a User ID.
  • 42. Due to technical limitations, eBay can not ensure that all of its members’ personal data will never be disclosed.
  • 43. In the end.....
  • 44. If the user is caught for not obeying these terms or just disagrees with them...
  • 45. eBay has every right to temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend or terminate that users membership
  • 46. References
