5.  Your Privacy Rights

The California Privacy Laws provide various rights to California residents. These include rights to access, deletion, correction, portability, opt-out, and non-discrimination. This section provides more information about each right and how California consumers can exercise these rights. We also encourage you to visit our Privacy Center Contact Page for more information on your rights and our practices.

We will make commercially reasonable efforts to identify your personal information that we collect, process, store, disclose and otherwise use, and to respond to your requests. We reserve the right to charge a reasonable fee, or decline to act upon a request, if it is excessive or overly burdensome. If we deny your request, we will explain the reasons in our response. 

For eBay to fulfill your request, you must provide sufficient information for us to reasonably verify that you are the consumer from whom we collected the personal information. The information you send for us to verify your identity will be used for this purpose only. If we are unable to verify your identity or if we suspect fraudulent activity, we may decline to comply with your request. 

  • Right to Access (also called a “Request to Know”). California consumers have the right to request that we disclose the personal information that we collect, use, disclose, and sell. This includes the right to request the categories of personal information we have collected about them, the categories of sources of personal information, the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information, the categories of third parties with whom we share or sell personal information, and the specific pieces of personal information we have collected. We try to fulfill access requests within 45 days of receiving the request. If we need more time or additional information to fulfill your request, we will write to let you know.
  • Right to Correct. Subject to some exceptions, California consumers have the right to request the correction of personal information we have collected from them. Corrections made to your eBay profile will be made immediately. Correction requests submitted through a webform may take up to 45 days to fulfill. If we need more time or additional information to fulfill your request, we will write to let you know.
  • Right to Delete. Subject to some exceptions, California consumers have the right to request the deletion of the personal information we have collected from them. Deletion requests may take between 30 and 60 days to fulfill (depending on whether you have recently sold on eBay as we must meet our commitment under eBay’s Money Back Guarantee policy). If we need more time or additional information to fulfill your request, we will write to let you know.
  • Right to Portability. Under certain circumstances and to the extent technically feasible, California consumers have the right to receive personal information we hold about them in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format so that you can provide that personal information to another entity. When you make a request to know specific pieces of information, the report we will provide will be in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format.
  • Right to Opt Out of Sale. You have the right to opt-out of the Sale of your personal information. “Sale” is defined broadly under California Privacy Laws to include the transfer of personal information to third parties in exchange for monetary or other valuable consideration, which includes practices common among online marketplaces.
  • Right to Opt Out of Sharing. You have the right to opt-out of the Sharing of your personal information. “Share” is defined under the California Privacy Laws to include the transfer of personal information to third parties for cross-context behavioral advertising purposes. Like many online marketplaces, we use cookies, pixels, and similar technology, and we Share certain information, such as your IP address or device identifiers, to certain third-party advertisers in order to improve your user experience and to optimize our marketing activities. You have the right to direct us not to Share or use your personal information for cross-context behavioral advertising purposes. Please note that you may still receive generalized ads after opting out of targeted advertising.
  • Right to Limit the Use of Sensitive Personal Information. To the extent your sensitive personal information (as that term is defined under California Privacy Laws) is used to infer characteristics about you, you have the right to direct us to stop such processing of your sensitive personal information for such purposes. eBay does not use your sensitive personal information to infer characteristics about you or limits its use to purposes authorized by CPRA Section 1798.121(a).
