Rating on how well you are following eBay rules and policies in your selling practices, and alerts you if your account or listings have any policy violations.
eBay's policies and rules are guidelines that help to create a safe, fair, and enjoyable trading environment for all eBay members. If you violate certain policies, your account can be restricted without notice. This is true even if your status shows a good level of policy compliance. Because of this, understanding and following eBay's policies can help you to avoid restrictions on your account. Policy compliance directly affects your PowerSeller status.

This element is not returned for all sites. Beginning at the end of 2009, eBay stopped returning it for sellers registered on several large sites, including the US, German, and UK sites.
