JBO may conduct customer surveys to improve our customer service and to collect information for new products and sales promotion. JBO will not disclose any data that could specifically identify a user.

Disclosure to Third Parties

JBO may disclose the stored personal data in case of legal requirements, enforcing our policies, responding to claims that a listing or other content violates the rights of others, or protect anyone's rights, property, or safety. JBO may also share your personal information with:

  • Third-Party Service Providers - JBO employs other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples of these include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform these functions but may not use it for any other purposes.
  • Promotional Offers - Sometimes JBO sends offers to selected groups of users on behalf of other businesses. When JBO does this, JBO does not give these businesses your name nor address. If you do not want to receive such offers, please adjust the Customer Communication Preference upon registration.

When JBO entrusts third parties with any of the above businesses, JBO provides only the necessary information. JBO shall bound third parties to the same level of our obligation under the law with written agreement and supervise third parties to hold the stored personal information in a secure way:

In case of inquiries from law enforcement or other governmental officials, or in response to a verified request related to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity, JBO will disclose the information that is relevant to the investigation, such as name, city, zip code, telephone number, email address, user ID history, IP address, fraud complaints and listing history.
Except for the above and in effort to respect your privacy and to keep the community free from people who do not comply with our policies, JBO will not disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss, or to report suspected illegal activity.
