You can opt-out of receiving email messages from us about products and services at any time, either by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Information You Share with Third Parties
We have designed Basaar to include a privacy setting that allows you to limit the information made visible to other users. Your User ID is displayed on Basaar and is therefore available to the public. All of your activities on Basaar including past transactions will be traceable to your User ID. In addition any comments, feedback and ratings in connection with such activities will be visible to others. Therefore, if you associate your name with your User ID, users and other third parties may be able to personally identify you and your activities on Basaar.
Although Basaar takes steps to ensure that other users of Basaar use information you post, publish or otherwise share on Basaar in a manner consistent with your privacy settings, we cannot guarantee that such users will comply. If you choose to share information with other users, please remember that even after you remove information from your profile, delete post/published content, copies of such information may remain visible elsewhere to the extent it has been shared with others, distributed elsewhere or copied or stored by other users.
You can review some of the personal account information you supplied to us by accessing your Account Settings.
We use industry-standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, such as firewalls and secure socket layers where appropriate. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.
Email Notices From Basaar
From time to time, you may receive email messages from Basaar about products, services, promotions, contests or other events or offerings that may interest you. Some email messages from Basaar are automated. Basaar will allow any member to unsubscribe from any email communication from us and to be removed from our mailing list, either by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email, or by emailing us at email@example.com.
We cannot ensure that your private communications and other personal information will not be disclosed to third parties. By way of example, without limiting the foregoing, we may be forced to disclose information to the government under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or we might disclose your information to other Basaars as part of offering additional functionality to you. Additionally, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose your personal information to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials as we, at our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate. Therefore, we do not promise that your personal information or private communications will remain private.
