  8. EBAY CONTENT
    1. Using and Displaying eBay Content. You may use and display eBay Content only within your Application and in accordance with the following guidelines:
      1. Authentication. If your Application will enable Your Users to interact with eBay Services in a way that requires sign-in to their eBay accounts (for example, bidding, buying, listing or access to My eBay), you may provide this access only after “Authentication”. Authentication occurs when an eBay User grants your Application access to their eBay Content via an eBay-controlled sign-in and consent page. An “Authenticated User” is an eBay User who has granted such access to your Application. You warrant that Your Users may revoke Authentication at any time for any reason.
      2. Public Display. To the extent eBay Content is publicly available within an eBay Service, you may display such eBay Content within your Application to promote eBay and enable Your Users to search and browse listings (“Public Display”), subject to the following restrictions: (1) When the eBay Content is no longer publicly available, you must delete it from your Application. For example, when an eBay User ID is publicly available in connection with a listing on the eBay Site, you may display the eBay User ID through your Application; but if that eBay User ID is no longer viewable in connection with the listing or is otherwise anonymized, you may no longer display the eBay User ID in a Public Display. (2) eBay Content in a Public Display may not be co-mingled or combined with non-eBay Content. For example, all eBay Content in a Public Display must be visually isolated from third-party listings or other non-eBay information. (3) eBay Content that is available only to an eBay User after signing in to the eBay User’s account may only be displayed to that eBay User after Authentication, and such eBay Content may not be used for Public Display without the explicit prior consent of that Authenticated User.
      3. Age of Displayed eBay Content. eBay Content displayed within your Application must be kept reasonably up to date. Displayed item listing information may not be more than six (6) hours older than information displayed on the eBay Site, and other eBay Content must be no more than twenty-four (24) hours older than content displayed on the eBay Site. If your displayed item listing is not as current as the listing on the eBay Site, you will disclose on your Application how much older your displayed item listing is than the same listing on the eBay Site.
      4. Prohibited Use and Derivation of Information.
        1. You must have eBay’s express prior written permission to use, or display eBay Content in any way that enables derivation of, any of the following:
          1. Any site-wide statistics across eBay Sites or within any eBay Site;
          2. Take-up rates for enhanced listings (for example, gallery, featured, category featured, etc.);
          3. Statistics relating to the performance (financial or otherwise) of any eBay Service (for example, gross merchandise sales);
          4. Average selling price or gross merchandise sold for any eBay category.
        2. Notwithstanding Your Users’ access to and use of their own information, you must have eBay’s express prior written permission to use, or display eBay Content in any way that enables derivation of, the following:
          1. Aggregated seller or buyer data (for example, Personal Information);
          2. Data relating to the performance of sellers, either individually or in aggregate (for example, performance data related to promotional campaigns, ad placements, or promoted listings);
          3. Aggregated data relating to transactions conducted through thirdparty affiliates (for example, off-eBay purchases on social networks, merchants, or other marketplaces enabled through Buy APIs);
          4. Data comparing eBay User utilization of eBay Services and the services of any third-party;
          5. Information relating to specific eBay Users or types of eBay Users;
          6. Conversion, completion or success rates; or
          7. Reserve auction information.
      5. Displaying Aggregated Content. Unless expressly permitted by eBay, you will not display any web page served by eBay servers in an aggregated display of different web pages in a browser display area (for example, by framing or mirroring).

    8. Sell, rent, trade, distribute, lease (or otherwise commercialize), copy, store or modify eBay Content, other than for the purposes allowed by these Terms.
    9. Enable eBay Users to set or change eBay User preferences, registration preferences or privacy preferences for the eBay Site with your Application, notwithstanding listing preferences, item cross-promotion preferences or preferences that customize end-of-auction emails.

Any information you provide to eBay hereunder is considered by eBay to be non-confidential.

  20. MISCELLANEOUS. You acknowledge and agree that these Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and eBay (the “parties”) and supersede all prior understandings and agreements of the parties. Any notices to eBay must be sent to our corporate headquarters address as set forth in the eBay User Agreement via first class or air mail or overnight courier, and is deemed given upon receipt. A waiver of any default is not a waiver of any subsequent default. Unenforceable provisions will be modified to reflect the parties' intention, and remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full effect. Neither party may assign these Terms without the prior express written permission of the other party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, your consent shall not be required for eBay’s assignment or transfer (1) due to operation of law; or (2) to an entity that acquires substantially all of eBay’s stock, assets or business; or (3) to a related entity (e.g., parent or subsidiary of parent). You and eBay are independent contractors and nothing in these Terms creates a partnership, agency, joint venture, or employer-employee relationship between eBay and you. There are no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms.
