4. Our Disclosure of Your Information. Due to the existing regulatory
environment, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications
and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed
(without limiting the foregoing), we may be forced to disclose information
to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third
parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications,
or users may abuse or misuse your information that they collect from our
site. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect
your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your
personally identifiable information or private communications will always
remain private. As a matter of policy, we do not sell or rent any personally
identifiable information about you to any third party. However, the following
describes some of the ways that your personally identifiable information
may be disclosed.
Advertisers. We aggregate (gather up data across all user
accounts) personally identifiable information and disclose such information
in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third
parties for other marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these
situations, we do not disclose to these entities any information that
could be used to identify you personally. Certain information, such as
your name, email address, and password, are not disclosed to marketing
999AllStar.com Community. Throughout the site, you are
identified by your User ID. If you select your email address as your User
ID you will disclose your email address to third parties. As a result,
third parties might send you unsolicited email and be able to personally
identify all of your public activities on the site. Although our pages
are coded with robot exclusion headers, others may illegally attempt to
automatically collect your email address from our site.
External Service Providers. There are a number of services
offered by external service providers that help you use our site (e.g.,
co-branded sites, listing agents, escrow, authentication, mediation).
If you choose to use these optional services, disclose information to
the external service providers, and/or grant them permission to collect
information about you, then their use of your information is governed
your personally identifiable information to the external service provider
offering such services. However, before we disclose your personally identifiable
information to an external service provider, you will see what data is
about to be sent and have the ability to approve the disclosure. To prevent
our disclosure of your personally identifiable information to an external
service provider, you can decline such disclosures or simply not use their
services. Because we do not control the privacy practices of these third
parties, you should evaluate their practices before deciding to use their
services. Users who register on a 999AllStar.com co-branded web site grant
999AllStar.com permission to pass your email address back to that co-branded
web site and affiliated web sites. The use of such information by the
co-brand and affiliated web sites is limited by their applicable privacy
Internal Service Providers. We may use internal service
providers to facilitate our services (e.g., search, discussion boards,
surveys) and therefore we may provide some of your personally identifiable
information directly to them. In some instances, the internal service
provider may collect information directly from you (such as the situation
where we ask a internal service provider to conduct a survey for us).
In these cases, you will be notified of the involvement of the internal
service provider, and all information disclosures you make will be strictly
optional. In all cases, these internal service providers' use of information
we supply them is restricted by confidentiality agreements. If you provide
additional information to an internal service provider directly, then
their use of your information is governed by their applicable privacy
Other Corporate Entities. We share much of our data, including
personally identifiable information about you, with our subsidiaries and
joint ventures that are committed to serving your online trading needs
and related services, throughout the world. To the extent that these entities
have access to your information, they will treat it at least as protectively
as they treat information they obtain from their other users. Our subsidiaries
and joint ventures follow privacy practices no less protective of all
users than our practices described in this document, to the extent allowed
by applicable law. It is possible that 999AllStar.com, its subsidiaries,
its joint ventures, or any combination of such, could merge with or be
acquired by another business entity. Should such a combination occur,
you should expect that 999AllStar.com would share some or all of your
information in order to continue to provide the service. You will receive
notice of such event (to the extent it occurs) and we will require that
the new combined entity follow the practices disclosed in this Privacy
Legal Requests. 999AllStar.com cooperates with law enforcement
inquiries, as well as other third parties to enforce laws, such as: intellectual
property rights, fraud and other rights. We can (and you authorize us
to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government
officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate,
in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements,
or other activity that is illegal or may expose us or you to legal liability.
Additionally, 999AllStar.com reserves the right (and you authorize us
to) to communicate any information about you (including, but not limited
to your policy violations, ended items, and item status) to other users

appropriate to maintain a level of trust and safety in our community and
or rules applicable to services you use through our site.

7. Reviewing and Changing Your Personally Identifiable Information. We
offer you the ability to automatically review and change the information
you submit to us by logging into the site and entering in the new information
yourself. Generally, we will not modify your information based on your
request because it is very difficult to authenticate your account manually.
You can change your user Id, email address, contact information, financial
information, shipping information and user preferences by going the preferences
and setup section. You must promptly update your information if it changes.
Once posted, you may not be able to change or remove any public postings

information from our active databases to prevent your information from
being shared with other users. To make this request, email privacy@999AllStar.com.com.

on your account activity and in accordance with our deactivation policy
and applicable law.
We will retain in our files information you have requested
to remove in some circumstances, such as to resolve disputes, troubleshoot
problems and enforce our User Agreement. Further, such prior information
is never completely removed from our databases due to technical and legal
constraints, including stored "back up" systems. Therefore,
you should not expect that all of your personally identifiable information
will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests.
8. Other Information Collectors. Except as otherwise expressly included
of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your
information to other parties, different rules may apply to their use or
disclosure of the information you disclose to them. To the extent that
we use third party advertisers, they adhere to their own privacy policies.

you are subject to the privacy policies of that third party. We encourage
you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to

access. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data
from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company. However,
"perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.
