    3. Sale Transactions may only take place via either of SellIt.Online’s third party payment providers - PayPal

    4. Where you use PayPal to make or receive payment for a Sale Transaction, you will need a PayPal account to use the Service.

    We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.If you have an account with us your Personal Information will be kept by us for as long as your account remains active. If you deactivate your account your personal information will be kept for a reasonable period of time after this so that we can complete any activities already initiated or where we have a need to retain your personal information for legal or technical reasons (including back-up systems) for example to retain proof of transactions for the enforcement of our rights, and to enable the other party to a transaction to access records of past purchases or sales. Following this period we will either delete the information or change it to a form that does not identify you.For details of retention periods for other aspects of your personal information please contact us at support@SellIt.Online.

Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal information shared between Europe and the US. If we collect your personal information in Australia, it may also be transferred to and stored in countries outside Australia including to our affiliates and our third party service providers who are located in countries including the UK, USA, and India. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and any relevant privacy laws.

Occasionally it may take us longer than this if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests.

  2. Right to request correction of your information:
    You may ask us to make any necessary changes to ensure that the data we hold about you is accurate and kept up to date. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your relationship with us.
