The eBay Site is a "person to person trading site" or an "online trading site." The eBay Site should never be referred to as an "auction site." Additionally, because your listings on the eBay Site are not "auctions" as that term is commonly understood, do not refer to your listings as "auctions". Suitable alternatives include: "items", "listings" and auction-style listings." Please do not refer to eBay as a "partner." Your relationship with eBay may be characterized as an "agreement."
